pixi DetoxifEYE – Weird things

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.     I am used to wearing weird things on my face. Fake scars, white contacts, pointy ears – I have worn it. And yes, there are pictures galore to prove it, but that is not todays topic. You might understand now that running around with green under eye patches isn´t very high up on my weird stuff list, so I was kind of surprised by the looks…

Beauty Empties April 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write the blog post or film the video. Please read disclaimer. Do you enjoy reading about the trends in blogging? I admit I do. Not because I think about adapting my content, it is just part of my nosey nature to be interested in that. It seems that the beauty community is taking a (long overdue) turn towards sustainability in 2019, which leads to Beauty Empties videos and Decluttering becoming more popular…

pixi Rose Tonic Review – Comparison

Advertisement info: This blog post uses PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I was not paid to write it. Please read disclaimer. I get that it might be quite confusing scrolling through my reviews right now: pixi Rose Tonic Review, pixi Rose Glow Mist Review, pixi Glow Tonic, pixi Glow Mist, pixi Rose Oil… There is a lot of pixi going on, and even more pixi Rose.     But what can I say, I have been bathing my skin in rose (scented) products for a while now and I…

pixi Rose Glow Mist – Absynthe

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I have never been someone to enjoy alcohol. Not because of health reasons (I mean, I eat a ton of sugary crap without second thoughts, so surely a glass of bubbly wouldn´t really matter). It is just that I simply don´t like the taste. Am I missing out? Maybe. I usually don´t think about that.     But there are a few kinds of alcohol that intrigue me. Not because of the taste, simply because I love the story behind them,…

pixi Lash & Line Love – My thoughts

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   Back in school I learned that when writing an essay, you should always “sandwich” your arguments. Meaning: If you are pro something, you list some points for the cause, then some against it and end with your strongest pro reason. That way you appear to be neutral, but subtly influence people to support something just by the order you list your points.     I have always wondered if the same is true for collection reviews. I mean, there…

pixi Rose Cream Cleanser – A rose

This blogpost contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   “A rose is a rose is a rose…” I bet you have heard that before. The sentence was written by Gertrude Stein as part of her poems. It is often interpreted as meaning “things are what they are”, a statement of the law of identity. In Stein’s view, the sentence expresses the fact that simply using the name of a thing already invokes the imagery and emotions associated with it.     But I bet you are not here for an…

New In Beauty April 2018: pixi, Caudalie and more

This blogpost contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer.   Back when I first started getting into makeup, I would often raid my mothers stash. Apply her lipsticks, ruin her rouge, drench myself in her perfume – basically making a big mess. Now that I am grown up (and a blogger), things are usually the other way round.     She plays with my lipsticks, inherits my eye cream and enjoys the packages that arrive at my doorstep just as much as I do. But when I opened her…

New In Beauty March 2018 – The Ordinary, pixi and more

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   After I returned from Galtür (read more about it here), I had a lovely package waiting for me. Inside was makeup, sparkly and shiny and new. Sounds good, I hear you say. No. Better: Sounds good, I imagine you think right now.       Technically I cannot hear you, and I am not sure if anyone except me is talking to the computer screen. Mental note: Go out more! Back to topic: Sounds good, but I knew…

pixi Rose Flash Balm – Multitasking

This post contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Despite the fact that multi-tasking has quite a bad rep these days, mom life often forces me to rely on it. The secret to multitask effectively is in my opinion to combine a passive with an active act. Like put on a face mask while you vacuum. Or, one of my favorite tips: Apply a thick layer of handcream underneath your rubber gloves when doing the dishes.     Trust me, that is as close to a manicure as I get…

pixi Rose Caviar Essence – It is what it is

This blog post contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. There is a fable in Germany which, long story short, adresses the urge to know everything. A problem that I can relate to. I encourage curiosity, but (fellow moms will agree), sometimes there are too many questions and we need to let go. Let go for times sake and for our own sanity.     “It is what it is”, said love. This is the last sentence of the fable, and the one I focus on when there simply…
