Multitasking – I have talked about that numerous times before. It just seems to be a recurrent thing in my life, albeit not always a successful one.
Just the other day, running on 1.5 hours of sleep, I tried to multitask feeding the cat and preparing my sons breakfast at the same time.
Well… let’s just put it that way: My son would eat about anything I serve him, the cat is much more picky.
Good thing I served the cat first and could quickly switch bowls before my son excitedly dug into his surprisingly meaty muesli…
So, once again, I vow to leave the multitasking to my skincare products, opting for versions that combine several beneficial ingredients at once. Like the Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum.
Another Monthly Recap post so soon? Well, the last one (read here) was two weeks late and I don´t like not sticking to my self-inflicted schedule
Yes, I know I could just have adapted the schedule, but that is not how I do things.
Anyway, September saw me back to work and, I am not going to lie, struggling. The problem with being on holiday is that you are away.
Which is totally the point, I get it, but leaves so much stuff waiting for you once you return, it can be overwhelming.
On top of that being away always gives me time to think, and thinking very often leads to ideas. Ideas are great, but must be followed by actions if you don´t want utter frustration, and that means – more work.
So if you add work-work to blog-work and then stir in some extra-idea-work, 24 hours are actually pretty short.
But enough complaints, let´s get into my blog post topics of the month of September!

Due to the fact that I do my blog post research half German, half English, things can get a bit confusing.
Different regulations depending on whether you are in Europe or in the US, different formulations of your favorite products, even slightly different names which makes SEO a nightmare – I have seen it all.
But when I did my research for the Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, I had to double check, because the German website read… cleansing lotion. Had I been using it all wrong?
Turns out that no, I hadn’t. You are supposed to apply it on your skin with a cotton pad, no rinsing, which in my books is more a toner step than a cleansing one. Semantics. The US website calls it Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, so I will stick with that.

A beauty lovers heart is fickle, and what is deeply loved one month might be gathering dust just a few weeks later. Believe me, I have been there!
But there are a few items that stay with us for longer, products we reach for over and over again, and now that fall is around the corner and I get the urge to pamper myself, I figured it would be a great time to share my favorite face masks. All of which have been in rotation for at least a year!
I divided them into four categories: Exfoliating, hydrating, purifying/oil control and brightening.
If you are wondering why there is no “antiaging” category, it is because I feel like serums are much better suited to deliver results there, simply because you use them every day.
