pixi Zero Zit – Blemishes be gone over night? | 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. I don´t get many zits these days. Which is not meant to be a complaint, far from it! At the age of 41 I feel I had my fair share of acne already. It is however an explanation for why the review of pixi Zero Zit has taken me so long to write.     I want to use it several times, compare it to other treatments I…

The Inkey List Oil and Water Double Cleanser

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Sometimes you find something that is so good, you end up giving it away. Now I am usually pretty selfish when it comes to skincare products and keep the best close to my bathroom sink, but while I was filming my review on The Inkey List Oil and Water Double Cleanser and said something along the lines of: “… perfect for people with acne prone skin and people on a budget…” I…

pixi pHenomenal Gel Review – Does it live up to its name?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I was pretty close of starting this review with a snarky remark about the naming of the product – I mean, pixi pHenomenal Gel, that is quite of a bold claim. But instead I thought I might talk about something else first: The “Practice what you preach” mantra and how miserably I fail to live by it. Not in all areas of my life, of course…

Murad Essential C Cleanser – Captain America

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Captain America was always my least favourite Avenger, but I admit his shield was pretty cool. Why I mention that? Because I want to talk about the Murad Essential C Cleanser today, and that one is part of the Murad Environmental Shield line. “Environmental Shield”, you get it? Like Captain Americas shield, protecting the weak (in this case our skin cells) from external aggressors (in this case pollution…

CBD Skin Care – What is it and will it make you high?

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Back in January when I talked about upcoming skin care launches and mentioned the Kiehls Cannabis Sativa Seed oil, or, more specific, the rise of CBD skin care in general, I immediately got a ton of questions. Is it legal? Will it make me high? What are the skin benefits of CBD anyway? There is no denying that we have seen an increase in products featuring either CBD oil, Cannabis Sativa…

Instytutum Retin Oil – the problem with Instytutum skincare reviews

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. I have published quite a few Instytutum Skincare Reviews already, but while I love the brand, I need to get something off my chest: An online version of the ingredient list is incredibly hard to find! A complete one, that is, one that doesn’t highlight the “key ingredients” only (whatever that may mean anyway). The website is no help here, not many retailers carry the brand and it isn’t as widely known that I…

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – Babylonian confusion

Advertisement info: This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. If you are a regular reader of my blog, and even more if you are subscribed to my You Tube channel, you will know that I am no native speaker. Most of the time that doesn’t lead to any difficulties. Not for me anyway, it is you that has to deal with my accent. But sometimes the difference between German and English gets really confusing. Take the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, for example. I wanted to write an introduction…

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…

Bakuchiol vs Retinol – Which one is best for you?

This blog post uses affiliate links, so it qualifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. Have you heard about the latest, greatest skincare ingredient? Bio-Retinol, the natural alternative to retinol, the vegan retinol, the plant based retinol, the natural retinol – all different names for one thing: Bakuchiol.     It isn’t actually as new as people will make you believe (isn’t that always how the story goes? The Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil has been using it for a long time), but a recent study on the effects and side effects…

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…
