Do you really need a special sunscreen for the lips? | Ask Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. We talked at length about the best sunscreens for the face, we talked about sunscreen for your hair, is there still a topic we didn’t cover yet? Of course there is – sunscreen for the lips!     But why do your lips need extra sun protection? Are sunburned lips even a thing? And why do I think a dedicated lip product is recommended? All that and my favorite product is what…

Summer skincare routine using only Skin1004 and Tretinoin | Doctor Anne

THIS BLOGPOST LINKS TO A VIDEO THAT WAS A PAID COLLABORATION. THE BLOGPOST ITSELF IS NOT SPONSORED. THE LINKS USED MIGHT BE AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. If you have oily and acne-prone skin, you know how much of a struggle finding the right skincare routine for summer can be. The heat makes us even more oily, which along with sweat triggers breakouts, and at the same time wind, sun and being outdoors can lead to irritation and dehydration, especially when paired with prescription acne treatments like Tretinoin. What you…

Ultraviolette Supreme Screen Hydrating Facial Skinscreen – SPF from Australia | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. The Ultraviolette Supreme Screen Hydrating Facial Skinscreen I wanted to show you today comes all the way from Australia. Well, this particular one doesn’t, I had it shipped over from the UK, where Ultraviolette is available, but the brand is Australian. Why? For two reasons. One, Michelle from LabMuffinBeautyScience recommended it and she is my favorite source of sunscreen knowledge. And two: If there is one country that really has to put…

Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-Age Super UV Sunscreen SPF 50 | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-Age Super UV Face Protection Cream SPF50 – that name is quite a mouthful! I am sure you have heard it before though, as Caroline Hirons mentioned it on her Instagram in early April and it immediately sold out almost everywhere in the UK.     Lucky me living in Germany had no issues finding it in stock though, so here I am with a review of this affordable…

Heliocare 360° Water Gel SPF 50+ – the best sunscreen for oily skin? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOGPOST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.  Last summer I did a whole series answering your sunscreen questions, and one of the videos I did was on sunscreen pills as in pills you take for added sun protection. One brand I mentioned was Heliocare – actually the parent brand is Cantabria Labs, a pharmaceutical company, and Heliocare is their sun protection line, featuring the “Photoprotection Capsules” as well as different actual sunscreens.   As I had never tried anything from…

Dr. Ceuracle Cica Regen Anti Dust Sun Gel Review – Really SPF 50? | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS (PR) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. The burning question, and yes, the pun is intended, the burning question whenever you review any sunscreen, like I will the Dr. Ceuracle Cica Regen Anti Dust Sun Gel today, the burning question always is: Does the actual SPF of the product match the one on the label? Well, I obviously can’t say for sure as there has been no official statement that I could find, but…

Geek & Gorgeous 101 C-Glow Serum | Doctors Review

This blog post uses affiliate links and PR-Samples (gifted items). I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. My search for the perfect Vitamin C serum has been well-documented on here, and whenever I told you guys about why my latest acquisition hadn’t quite lived up to my (admittedly high) expectations, there was one that was recommended over and over: The Geek & Gorgeous 101 C-Glow Serum.     So when someone in the comments told me that Geek & Gorgeous is a Hungarian brand and even has…

Good Molecules Yerba Mate Wake Up Eye Gel – Doctors Review | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Did you know that I drank original Mate tea in Chile once in the strangest hostel I ever visited, and that I absolutely hated it? I have pictures to prove it, and as you can probably tell there is a pretty long story behind how and especially where that happened. I am not going to tell this story today though, I am here with a review of…

Geek & Gorgeous Jelly Joker Low pH Gentle Cleanser Review | Doctor Anne

This blogpost uses affiliate links and contains PR (gifted items). I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I think you can learn a lot about a brand’s philosophy by their cleansers. Are they expensive and luxurious, are they affordable and basic, are they designed to give you a spa experience or do they simply get the job done?   Both have their time and place, which is why I have a cleanser wardrobe to suit my every mood, and the latest addition to it is…

Skincare and makeup empties – Spring 2021 | Doctor Anne

This blogpost uses affiliate links and contains PR (gifted items). I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The last time I got around to showing you the skincare bits I finished was back in October in my End of Summer Empties. The plan was actually to do it quarterly, like a seasonal thing, and here we are, only six months later. Guess we missed a whole season, but I am just going to use the pandemic as an excuse for that.     That also…
