Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   You might already be aware of the fact that you can´t really drink your way to hydrated skin – water ingested enters the bloodstream quickly, increases blood volume quickly and triggers renal excretion quickly, which means translated: If you drink a lot of water in a short amount of time, you will need to pee, but not look any plumper. Why that is relevant in my review…

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Let me start of my series of in depth murad reviews with the one that is most confusing: The Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield. What confuses me about it? I don´t know which category to put it in. Is it a sunscreen or is it a primer? Is it makeup or is it skincare? We will come to that, and we will of course answer the most important question…

THE INKEY LIST Hyaluronic Acid – Basics

This blog post uses affiliate links and thus qualifies as advertisement.  Please read disclaimer. It is the basics that count. If you don´t have a solid foundation, you´ll never be able to build a lasting house. Not that I know even the tiniest bit about building a house – I am hard pressed to even draw one that my kids recognize – but it is a subject that I have thought a lot about over the last few weeks. Ahm, skincare basics, that is. Not building a house.     Ever…

THE INKEY LIST Collagen Serum – Names

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Unicorn tears – if a brand decides to name their products like that, they lost me as a customer for sure. I prefer a less romantic, more to the point approach, which is why I get along so very well with The Ordinary products: The name is what is inside the bottle. Fancy? No. But easy to work with for sure!     I recently learned the hard way though that seemingly straight forward names can be misleading! You see, when I…

Peptides – Everything you need to know

“And it contains peptides!” – “Aaaahhh… What?” Have you ever felt that way when someone tried to sell you a skincare product? I know I have. Peptides have been around for a few years, they are the “thing to have” in your routine, yet there is a lot of insecurity about what they actually do.     Or if they even do anything. And that is okay, because the jury is still out on that. And the fact that there are over 100 peptides doing different things doesn´t really help…

The Ordinary “Buffet” – Talk science to me!

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. It would have been so easy to talk about food in this intro. I mean, come on, “Buffet”? Something along the lines of “Do you prefer it over a la carte?” or “Do you think we eat more or less when there is buffet?” But I refuse to take the easy road (I save that for late night blog post writing mere hours before something needs to be published) and instead want to talk about a change that I have noticed…

The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   Sometimes a tiny letter can make a huge difference. Make you question things, for example. In cosmetic science, that letter is usually a “v”. Why a “v” you ask? And imagine how great it would have been had I said a “y” -Y a “y”? Because “in vivo” sounds pretty similar to “in vitro”, but in terms of results there is a huge difference.     See, many ingredients proove their claim on human cells. In the lab, in petri…
