Tan Luxe Super Glow Hyaluronic Face Tan Serum – Summer in a bottle

Advertisement info: This blog post contains affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   If you hear pale skin and think “english rose”, let me tell you that not all of us have this porcelain hue. No, some of us are pale and yellow toned, and that quickly turns into “looking sick” rather than any floral analogies.     So to prevent people asking me if I am ill whenever I go makeup free, I heavily rely on my new found favorite: The Tan Luxe…

The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm Review – Not boring at all

Advertisement info: This blog post contains affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Growing up, Oat Meal was the epitome of boring. Plain oat meal for breakfast. Oat meal colored hair. Whichever context it appeared it, there was nothing exciting about it.     Until skincare lovers learned about the soothing properties of colloidal oat meal, and suddenly products like The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm made oats glamorous and the thing to have. But is this cleanser really as good as everyone says?…

Instytutum Super Serum – One serum to do it all?

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples/ gifted items and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I am going to address the elephant in the room first: Yes, the Instytutum Super Serum is expensive. It is not the most expensive serum out there, but 129$ for 30 ml of product is something that makes me pause before I purchase. I will tell you straight away: I don’t think any skincare product needs to be that expensive. But, and that is a very personal but, it might be worth it.  …

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 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…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser – Summer lovin´

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Summer lovin´, happened so fast… Whenever temperatures are up and a beach holiday is in the cards, this line from Grease is my constant companion.     Not that I have had many summer flings lately, my beach days are filled with sand toys and my idea of a wild night is going to bed after ten pm. But the lack of fiery-eyed gigolos in my recent past (Mr. Loca is handsome, but not fiery-eyed) doesn’t mean that I can´t enjoy a…

Caudalie Premier Cru Serum – Motivation

Motivation can come from different sources. Like, you motivate yourself because you really want something. 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.”…
