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…

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…
