Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask – Is this fall I smell?

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Is it too early to think about fall? Rhetorical question, of course. YES! IT IS! Leave me to my beach sunsets, my coconut scented sun cream and my “too hot to sleep so I´ll dance the night away” nights.     Not that I have many of those, mind you, but I could have, in a parallel universe where I am awake after 10 pm. Ah, back in the days… Where was I? Fall. Or at least the prospect of fall,…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser – Summer lovin´

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

Or you are motivated by something external, like the bonus you´ll get if your work turns out superior.     And sometimes you are motivated by another person. Your wife, for example. Like it happened in the case of developing the Caudalie Premier Cru Serum. Dr. David Sinclair (Harvard) was approached by Caudalie with a research question and almost declined the offer. Almost. Until his wife said: “Oh, Caudalie? I use a lot of their stuff.”…

The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   Sometimes a tiny letter can make a huge difference. Make you question things, for example. In cosmetic science, that letter is usually a “v”. Why a “v” you ask? And imagine how great it would have been had I said a “y” -Y a “y”? Because “in vivo” sounds pretty similar to “in vitro”, but in terms of results there is a huge difference.     See, many ingredients proove their claim on human cells. In the lab, in petri…
