Which ingredients work for anti aging?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS *PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   If I had one cent for every time I get asked this question: “Which ingredients really work for anti aging?” I´d have, well, maybe a few Euro already. Which is a pretty anticlimactic introduction, really, to stress the fact that I do get asked this question a lot. And I get it, with marketing claims getting stranger by the minute and a new it-ingredient…

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…

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…

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…

When should I start using anti-aging products

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. After I filmed the video on “How to build a basic skincare routine”, a common question I got was: When should I start using anti-aging products? Can starting too soon be harmful? Which age will be too late?     As always, there is no one size fits all answer. The skincare you need is much more determined by your concerns and your lifestyle than it is by the age in your passport! Starting really early won´t damage your skin –…

Low Buy 2019 – The first month

This blog post uses affiliate links and features PR-Samples, which classifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. So, that low buy thing… How has it been going so far? Well, thank you for asking! Pretty good, actually. I admit I feel a little envious about all of you that finished a No Buy January and now are back in the game, credit card in hand, but if I am completely honest, I don´t  really need anything. (Read about my Low Buy 2019 rules here)     Which is actually not entirely true: I…

New Skincare Releases – What is worth buying?

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Anzeige. You know what the hardest part of a low-buy is? You actually can’t just go out and just buy all the things that tickle you’re fancy. Okay, I should have known that before I declared my Low-Buy 2019 on the blog, and obviously I DID know that, but I didn’t know just how hard it would be! I developed a habit of keeping up with new releases over the last year, a great thing for a beauty blogger, but not exactly…

THE INKEY LIST Rosehip Oil – For the soul

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Once the New Year Excitement has worn off, all we are left with is the cold, dark and grey reality of winter in Germany. No snow covered slopes to brighten the outdoors here, at least not on a regular!     When going outside seems to be no fun at all, and you need not only protective layers of clothing, but also protective layers for your soul. Now don´t tell me you don´t know what I am talking about, chocolate is…

Oskia Perfect Cleanser – Wool

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. It is no secret that I love my knitwear. Scarves, cardigans, you rarely see me without them once the temperature drops below 20 °C. The love for knits runs deep in my family, my mother supplying us with an abundance of handmade garments, dressing my children as well as myself. The one exception? My sister. She loves a chunky knit as much as I do, don´t get me wrong. But she can´t stand the feeling of wool against her skin. Doesn´t matter…
