The Inkey List Peptide Moisturizer Review – Bougie on a bargain? | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Peptides are among the ingredients I get the most questions about: Are they worth the money? Which ones are the best? I have a whole blog post dedicated to the use of peptides in skincare, and what I said back then still is true: Peptides are promising, but I would not spend a fortune on them just yet. Good thing there are quite a few affordable options on the market, one of…

Merumaya Intensely Youthful Eye Cream Review – #beautyhasnoage | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. This is not my first Merumaya review. You might have read the one on their Melting Cleansing Balm (it is here in case you haven´t) and remember that I was not a fan. What I AM a fan of though is the brand itself: The founder that I had nice chats with on social media, the #beautyhasnoage hashtag they use to promote their products, the whole way of…

The Ordinary Buffet or Buffet + Copper Peptides – Which one is right for you?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I had a comment on the video where I showed The Ordinary „Buffet“ + Copper Peptides 1% for the first time that pretty much summed up why I had put off buying it for so long: „I don’t want to try this one. The original “Buffet” is so good already, if this one is even better, I know that I simply must buy it, and it is double the price!” Well, if…

Instytutum Super Serum – One serum to do it all?

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples/ gifted items and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I am going to address the elephant in the room first: Yes, the Instytutum Super Serum is expensive. It is not the most expensive serum out there, but 129$ for 30 ml of product is something that makes me pause before I purchase. I will tell you straight away: I don’t think any skincare product needs to be that expensive. But, and that is a very personal but, it might be worth it.  …

pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches – Do you need them?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The problem with testing skincare is that very often it is aimed at prevention. And how do you measure the wrinkles that might have appeared, but didn’t because of your cream? Or, in this case, because of the pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches? One thing you could do is apply something to one side of your face exclusively for an extended period of time and see if you can…

Instytutum Flawless Hydra Mist and Water Burst Cream – Winter is coming

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER There is no denying that fall is well and truly upon us. The leaves change color, there is a chill in the air in the mornings and sooner or later we will have to turn the heating back on. I am more of a “sooner” person in that regard, given that I am cold whenever temperatures drop below 24 degrees, but so far environmental concerns have stopped…

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 Retinol – New beginnings

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   The first review of the year feels a little like the first snow. Everything looks different, feels different, and you are suddenly very conscious about the footprints you are going to leave.     Well, after the first hours of winter wonderland everything will turn into the same soggy mess it was before, slightly grey, really wet and clammy. At least this is true for German first snow, so I guess it will be true for this German Beauty Blog as…
