Droste-Laux She.Tox Alkaline Facial Cleanser – Detoxification

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

If you have been around for some time, you know that „detox“ is a word that drives me nuts. That goes a little against zeitgeist, I know, but is funded in my medical training and general skepticism.

See, your body has numerous ways of getting rid of toxins, and unless you have a medical condition, your liver and kidneys do all the detoxification you need.

It is sensible though to stop putting potentially harmful stuff into and onto your body, and the experience that you feel better when you stop eating a lot of bad stuff has led to the development of special diets.

One of them is the alkaline diet, which is part of alternative medicine since approximately 1913, and the main claim is that our food contains too many acids, making us sick. As a solution, alkaline foods are promoted as well as alkaline powder as supplement.

To be crystal clear here: Yes, we do eat too much sugar and animal products, and yes, when we focus on leafy greens and complex carbs instead it is way healthier. But that has, as far as scientific proof goes, nothing to do with acidosis in our bloodstream. Acidosis is a severe illness that needs in hospital treatmeant, not a supplement!

So you can imagine that I was more than skeptical when a PR package filled with Droste-Laux She.Tox products arrived at my doorstep, as this specific line is focused on alkalinisation of the body and strengthening your inner light.

But I decided to leave skepticism aside and give the Droste-Laux She.Tox Alkaline Facial Cleanser * a fair chance.

Natura Siberica Neck and Décolleté Lifting Cream – Fighting gravity

Have you heard about the gravity chairs you will train on if you want to become an astronaut? They spin you around and around, at increasing speed, until you experience up to 6 g, which is about 6 times more than you feel in a starting aeroplane. And which is close to the max a human body can cope with, at least for a short time.

I was always intrigued by that experience, but as I get motion sick very easy, becoming an astronaut never was an option.

So the closest I came to experiencing changes in gravity was after having a baby. Believe me, when your boobs grow by almost two cup sizes, you will feel the pull!

The perfect time to test the Natura Siberica Neck and Décolleté Lifting Cream (*) and Icy Lifting Mask (*), don’t you think?

ahuhu Amino Intensive Repair Shampoo – Comfort scents

Way before my love affair with scented candles began, I loved the beeswax kind you could buy around Christmas.

The warm color they had, the beautiful light and of course the smell of honey once you burned them, everything made me feel cozy and relaxed.

Now that scented candles have taken over, I rarely buy one of them anymore, but I stumbled upon the scent in another product recently, way unexpected.

Organic Surge Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser – Is natural always better?

I am a scientist at heart.

Even though I am well aware of the limitations they have, I love studies and case reports and all the neat little numbers and diagrams that come with them.

That being said, I do understand that man-made may be scary for some.

But is natural always better? Or, to put it that way: Is natural always safe?

I don’t think so. Natural ingredients are just that: Grown by nature. That makes them neither better nor worse than man-made stuff. Especially when it comes to adverse reactions.

Preamble aside, let´s talk about Organic Surge Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser. I will explain what my point is further down the line.
