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…

pixi Peel and Polish Review – The scent issue

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   I usually don’t read other reviews when I am testing something. I want to make up my own mind first, then write a draft and afterwards look at what other people have to say. I did the same when writing my pixi Peel and Polish Review, and I have to say what I found surprised me. It surprised me so much that I had to double check…

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…

pixi DetoxifEYE – Weird things

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.     I am used to wearing weird things on my face. Fake scars, white contacts, pointy ears – I have worn it. And yes, there are pictures galore to prove it, but that is not todays topic. You might understand now that running around with green under eye patches isn´t very high up on my weird stuff list, so I was kind of surprised by the looks…

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 Oil Blend Review – Face oils for every occasion

Advertisement info: This blog post uses PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I was not paid to write it. Please read disclaimer. Are you sick of me talking about the pixi Rose-Infused Collection already? I would totally understand. It has been nothing but roses on here lately, and that despite the fact that Valentines Day is long gone. Just once more, I promise, and then I will turn to other skin care. Or maybe some makeup? Well, beauty stuff. But today we will talk about roses again. Or, more precisely:…

Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream Review – on mature skin

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I was not paid to write it. Please read disclaimer. The pixi skintreats Rose Ceramide Cream is the one I almost missed. And yes, “The one I almost missed” is a long standing skincare term, same as “The one that got away.” Only less life-changing, less heartbreaking and, usually, less romantic. Although you could probably argue with the latter, at least in this case: Pink packaging, roses, it ticks all the romance boxes.     Still, I was…

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…
