Instytutum Retin Oil – the problem with Instytutum skincare reviews

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. I have published quite a few Instytutum Skincare Reviews already, but while I love the brand, I need to get something off my chest: An online version of the ingredient list is incredibly hard to find! A complete one, that is, one that doesn’t highlight the “key ingredients” only (whatever that may mean anyway). The website is no help here, not many retailers carry the brand and it isn’t as widely known that I…

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – Babylonian confusion

Advertisement info: This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. If you are a regular reader of my blog, and even more if you are subscribed to my You Tube channel, you will know that I am no native speaker. Most of the time that doesn’t lead to any difficulties. Not for me anyway, it is you that has to deal with my accent. But sometimes the difference between German and English gets really confusing. Take the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, for example. I wanted to write an introduction…

pixi Rose Oil Blend Review – Face oils for every occasion

Advertisement info: This blog post uses PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I was not paid to write it. Please read disclaimer. Are you sick of me talking about the pixi Rose-Infused Collection already? I would totally understand. It has been nothing but roses on here lately, and that despite the fact that Valentines Day is long gone. Just once more, I promise, and then I will turn to other skin care. Or maybe some makeup? Well, beauty stuff. But today we will talk about roses again. Or, more precisely:…

MV Organic Skincare Pure Jojoba – Not in my bathroom

This post contains affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. I like luxury skincare, that is no secret. But I don´t like using high end just for the sake of it. If there is a drugstore item that does the job at half the price just as good, I am going to use that one. Sometimes though there are products that can be easily duped for their main purpose, but are unique when used for something else. Like the MV Organic Skincare Pure Jojoba. I got it as a gift with purchase,…

MV Organic Skincare 9 Oil Cleansing Tonic – Whatever your problem, this is a solution

When you do something the second time, you are way better prepared. So when the time arrived to go to the hospital to deliver my son earlier this year, I knew how I was going to feel afterwards: Exhausted, emotional, sweaty and completely off balance. And that this feeling would stick with me for the weeks to come.     So when the time came to pack my skincare stuff for the hospital (here is a video on it, in case you are interested), I totally fell for the promise…

Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex – To right your summer wrongs

With summer waving it´s Goodbye and fall slowly approaching, it is time to take a step back and face your summer sins. And I am not talking the one too many Mojitos with the cute guy at the beach bar. Honestly, I am not. I am a married mother of two, things like that are completely alien to me.     No, I am talking the sun and the salt and the late nights out that result in a lack of proper skincare. And way too little face masks. These…

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil – You can never know it all

If you have been around for a little while now, you may have read my blogpost on “Pregnancy skincare” (if not, here is the link) and remember that I claimed I´d not be introducing Vitamin A in my skincare until I finished breastfeeding and that I had never used it before. Turns out I was wrong.     Because all my ingredient research aside, I had never considered that Rosehip Oil contains 0,4% retinoid acid, which is pretty much the stuff that retinyl palmitate is transferred into once it is…

SQ pure Squalane – What do sharks and olives have in common?

Sharks and olives? Let´s see… One lives in the ocean, one grows on trees. One is a fish, one is a fruit (a stone fruit, to be precise). One I am not so keen on meeting, one I really enjoy on my pizza. So they have nothing in common? Wrong.   Both sharks and olives are used to provide squalene, which is then  saturated and transformed into squalane. And that one is widely used in skincare as moisturizer and antioxidant. Now I absolutely stay away from squalene made from shark liver, which…
