pixi Vitamin C Tonic Review – Tonic, toner, does it matter?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   Do you know the difference between a toner and a tonic? I don´t, or at least I didn´t until I started writing my pixi Vitamin C Tonic Review. To be fair, I still think they are different names for the same thing, as it often happens in skin care, but that might just be cynic me. I´ll let you decide for yourself while I share my…

Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm Review – Teaching

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Ever so often you come around something that has been available for such a long time, you question whether or not putting up a review does actually make any sense. Take the Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm for example: It has been available for many years now, and there is a ton of rave reviews out there. So is it absolutely necessary that I add my voice to the mix? Well, yes.  …

pixi skintreats Vitamin C Serum Review – Lemonade

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Have you ever used a skin care product that immediately takes you back to childhood days? For me that is the pixi skintreats Vitamin C Serum that I´ll review today. It is not because the pixi serum was already around when I was a kid (AGES ago, people!) No, it is because the scent reminds me of the lemonade we were allowed to drink when on beach holiday…

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 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 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…

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…

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 Vitamin C Serum – More and more

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   Bigger is better – I am old enough to remember those slogans. Back when I was young (CENTURIES ago, people!), minimalism wasn´t really a thing. You had to always have more. The newest, the latest, the biggest.     It didn´t matter if you did need it. Or even use it, for that matter. You just needed to HAVE it. And while minimalism (and low-buys) seem to be everywhere these days, I feel like some of that more is more…
