pixi Retinol Eye Cream – Is it worth it?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. One of the questions you get a lot when blogging about skin care is: “Do you really think XYZ is worth all that money?”. And it is one of the hardest to answer, because it comes down to so many different (and very personal) things.     I asked myself that question recently, while I was testing the pixi Retinol Eye Cream, and compared it to my current…

Night time skin care routine with Tretinoin

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples/ gifted items and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. One of the most frequent questions I got after doing my videos about retinoids (Comprehensive Beginners Guide to Retinoids here and How to minimize retinol irritation here) was how my ACTUAL night time skincare routine looked like.     Not in theory, but in detail. Every individual product. My step by step routine, so to speak. Well, here you go. Today we will talk about what I use at night if I use my…

pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches – Do you need them?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The problem with testing skincare is that very often it is aimed at prevention. And how do you measure the wrinkles that might have appeared, but didn’t because of your cream? Or, in this case, because of the pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches? One thing you could do is apply something to one side of your face exclusively for an extended period of time and see if you can…

pixi Overnight Retinol Oil Review – Confusion

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Because I know I will get that question, I will address it right here in the first sentence: No, I do not know how high the percentage of Retinol in the pixi Overnight Retinol Oil actually is. And I don’t  have the means to find out.     I will give you an educated guess though, based on my experience using the product and reading ingredient lists,…

pixi Glow Tonic Serum – Would you?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. If you had created something that was such a success that hunderts of bottles were sold each year, would you resist the urge to create other products around it? I couldn´t, so I totally get why pixi skintreats took their best selling Glow Tonic and created the pixi Glow Tonic Collection, one of which, the pixi Glow Tonic Serum, I am going to review today. (Psst, I already…

pixi Vitamin C Lotion Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   Todays review of the pixi Vitamin C Lotion marks my last in a long line that started quite some time ago with the pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist (Review here). I admit I hadn´t thought about that one in a while, as that product was released years ago, but apparently pixi are building more and more whole lines around their hero products, and I am here for…

pixi Vitamin C Caviar Balm Review – Acquired taste

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 like Caviar? I do, but I think it is an acquired taste, like wine and French Cheese, and I remembered it had been a while since i ate some when writing my pixi Vitamin C Caviar Balm review. Not that this one contains actual caviar, no, but some skincare lines do.     Caviar is said to have an antioxidant effect when used in creams,…

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…
