pixi Retinol Eye Cream – Is it worth it?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. One of the questions you get a lot when blogging about skin care is: “Do you really think XYZ is worth all that money?”. And it is one of the hardest to answer, because it comes down to so many different (and very personal) things.     I asked myself that question recently, while I was testing the pixi Retinol Eye Cream, and compared it to my current…

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 Brighten-I Eye Cream – Worth the hype?

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   I still remember back in the days when I was sweet 17, that I would look in the bathroom mirror and think: “Wow, my dark circles are really bad!”. Disclaimer: They weren´t. But I was obsessed with the hint of a shadow that would appear whenever I slept less than nine hours, and tried about everything that promised to brighten them. Back then I would have loved The Inkey List Brighten-I…

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…

pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches – Do you need them?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The problem with testing skincare is that very often it is aimed at prevention. And how do you measure the wrinkles that might have appeared, but didn’t because of your cream? Or, in this case, because of the pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches? One thing you could do is apply something to one side of your face exclusively for an extended period of time and see if you can…

pixi Overnight Retinol Oil Review – Confusion

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Because I know I will get that question, I will address it right here in the first sentence: No, I do not know how high the percentage of Retinol in the pixi Overnight Retinol Oil actually is. And I don’t  have the means to find out.     I will give you an educated guess though, based on my experience using the product and reading ingredient lists,…

pixi Glow Tonic Serum – Would you?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. If you had created something that was such a success that hunderts of bottles were sold each year, would you resist the urge to create other products around it? I couldn´t, so I totally get why pixi skintreats took their best selling Glow Tonic and created the pixi Glow Tonic Collection, one of which, the pixi Glow Tonic Serum, I am going to review today. (Psst, I already…

Instytutum Flawless Hydra Mist and Water Burst Cream – Winter is coming

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER There is no denying that fall is well and truly upon us. The leaves change color, there is a chill in the air in the mornings and sooner or later we will have to turn the heating back on. I am more of a “sooner” person in that regard, given that I am cold whenever temperatures drop below 24 degrees, but so far environmental concerns have stopped…
