La Roche-Posay Redermic C – Nothing new here?

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.

I know that some people accuse bloggers of only pushing new and exciting stuff. And while I guess the temptation to talk about shiny new things is huge, there is a charm in things that have been around for a while for good reason.

I am lucky to have found quite a few like the lovely Shireen from Reflection of Sanity that don´t fall into the “new is better” trap and introduce me to products I missed out on.

Review: La Roche-Posay Redermic C

The latest one? La Roche-Posay Redermic C for normal to combination skin. Now there is a whole line of products in the Redermic C line, and I didn´t pick up exactly the one she recommended here, but still it was a lucky find.

Because despite the plain appearance and somewhat unexciting marketing, this tube is filled with the good stuff.

Taking out the trash 16 – Empties February 2018

This blogpost contains PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

When I was filming this video, I was pretty content with myself. Not only did I like the way my hair looked – call me vain, but these things can make or break a day -, but I was satisfied with having yet another batch of products finished to show you.

After starting to make a conscious effort to actually finish products and not let the last bit go to waste while saving it for a special day, I felt like I made really good progress.

Great progress!

Once I finished editing, I turned to reading my favorite blogs. And stumbled upon this blogpost (“10 tips – How I finished 300 beauty products in one year“), written by the lovely Sal.

Yes, you read that right. 300 beauty products. THREEHUNDERT. Suddenly my empties list looked really sad in comparison.

Taking out the trash 15 – My December 2017 Empties

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.

 

Did you know that on public holidays as well as on every Sunday, stores are closed in Germany? No quickly popping into town to get some food, no aimlessly wandering around looking for cute things to buy.

A public holiday (or every Sunday) is a holiday for everyone. Even the people working in retail.That may change, no matter how you personally feel about it, but at the moment it is my reality.

And every year I watch clips of the Boxing Day madness going on in other parts of the world from the comfort of my own home. I pat my belly, shift my weight from one side to the other (yes, the Christmas indulgence does bring back memories of the late stages of pregnancy) and wonder: Is there still anything we need to buy?

October 2016 – Favorites and Recap

October done and dusted, and things are getting cold here. Outside, that is. And inside, when our heating was broken. But it is fixed again. One thing I did not include in the October recap, but rest assured, it was on of my favorite things happening.

The fixing, not the breaking.

Favorite products 2015 Part I – Skincare, hair care, body care

It is the final days of 2015, a time spend on reflecting and looking back, so I figured I´d share my musings with you and show you my favorite products of 2015.

To help you decide what you want to watch, I divided it into two videos: One featuring skin-, hair and body care and one talking all things makeup. That way I was able to keep them short(er) as well, which is always a bonus.

Taking out the trash III

Time to throw away my empties once again this year. And because I don’t believe in waiting for New Years Eve to start something new, I figured that would be the perfect opportunity to film my first ever YouTube video!

So if you want to see me “ahm” and “äh”, struggle for words and get sad about Body Butter, click play or watch it here on YouTube.

A list of everything mentioned plus links to the reviews are below. Read more

La Roche Posay Serozinc – When in Paris

This blog post may contain affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

Whenever I set my foot on french soil, there are three things on my to do list:
Eat, visit Sephora and enter a pharmacy to buy a six month supply of La Roche Posay Serozinc.

If you read at least one Beauty Blog, I am sure you already have heard the praise.
Everyone keeps talking about this annoyingly hard to get toner, a miracle in a blue spray can.
Is it worth the hype?
