The Inkey List Ceramide Night Treatment

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Ceramides – I bet you have heard about them. More and more products like The Inkey List Ceramide Night Treatment are released, claiming to repair the skins barrier and thus improve moisture retention. And there is no doubt that Ceramides are indeed part of a healthy skin, and that their loss leads to problems. But seeing that there are several different types of Ceramides, and that they all are present at different…

pixi Hydrating Milky Cleanser Review – the best foam ever

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I have a weird obsession with shaving cream. Weird not only because of the item (I am fully aware that shaving cream is not something to obsess about), but also because I don’t really ever use it. I epilate, I wax, I pluck, but there are very few areas of my body that I actually shave – only my armpits, and whenever I do I just use my…

The Inkey List Oil and Water Double Cleanser

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Sometimes you find something that is so good, you end up giving it away. Now I am usually pretty selfish when it comes to skincare products and keep the best close to my bathroom sink, but while I was filming my review on The Inkey List Oil and Water Double Cleanser and said something along the lines of: “… perfect for people with acne prone skin and people on a budget…” I…

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Let’s address the elephant in the room first. Yes, I said in the title that the pixi Jasmine Retinol Lotion is actually NOT a retinol. How come? Well, if you have read my post on Retinol vs retinoid – your comprehensive retinol guide then you will know that Retinol is a molecule, while Retinoids is the umbrella term.     And while the pixi Retinol Jasmine Lotion contains…

pixi pHenomenal Gel Review – Does it live up to its name?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I was pretty close of starting this review with a snarky remark about the naming of the product – I mean, pixi pHenomenal Gel, that is quite of a bold claim. But instead I thought I might talk about something else first: The “Practice what you preach” mantra and how miserably I fail to live by it. Not in all areas of my life, of course…

Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel

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…

One of the perks of running a beauty blog is being sent stuff to test. The worst part of running a beauty blog though is being sent stuff to test. Confused much? Hear me out. I will explain using the pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask as example.  I mean, everybody gets the “perks” part. New skincare arriving at your door step every month, what´s not to love?…

pixi Rose Tonic Review – Comparison

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…

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…
