The Inkey List Peptide Moisturizer Review – Bougie on a bargain? | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Peptides are among the ingredients I get the most questions about: Are they worth the money? Which ones are the best? I have a whole blog post dedicated to the use of peptides in skincare, and what I said back then still is true: Peptides are promising, but I would not spend a fortune on them just yet. Good thing there are quite a few affordable options on the market, one of…

Merumaya Intensely Youthful Eye Cream Review – #beautyhasnoage | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. This is not my first Merumaya review. You might have read the one on their Melting Cleansing Balm (it is here in case you haven´t) and remember that I was not a fan. What I AM a fan of though is the brand itself: The founder that I had nice chats with on social media, the #beautyhasnoage hashtag they use to promote their products, the whole way of…

Good Molecules Pineapple Exfoliating Powder – My thoughts

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I like pineapple. I really do. Nevertheless, putting it on pizza is a crime. Random introduction to a review of the Good Molecules Pineapple Exfoliating Powder? True, but I felt the need to get that off my chest before we dive into the question whether or not pineapple in skincare is a better idea.     Unlike on pizza (and I am going to fight you on that!),…

pixi Zero Zit – Blemishes be gone over night? | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I don´t get many zits these days. Which is not meant to be a complaint, far from it! At the age of 41 I feel I had my fair share of acne already. It is however an explanation for why the review of pixi Zero Zit has taken me so long to write.     I want to use it several times, compare it to other treatments I…

Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum – the one for summer

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Skincare should change with the seasons. Especially your serums, given that they are the step in your routine where you really tune in with what your skin needs that day (read more on serums here). The Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum for example is one for the summer. Why? Because as the name would suggest it has the focus on fighting hyperpigmentation, something we tend to…

Good Molecules Daily Brightening Serum – Hydration with an extra | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   When I uploaded my Updated Morning Skincare Routine for spring recently (find it here), I got a lot of questions on the Good Molecules Daily Brightening Serum. In general brightening seems to be a topic that gets a lot of attention, something I absolutely understand – my face is covered in hyperpigmentation that only someone as loving as my husband could mistake for “cute freckles”.    …

Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner Review – What makes it special?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Is it whom or who? I am no native speaker, so I bet there are a few questionable choices in grammar and wording on this blog. But when I wrote my Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner Review, autocorrect suggested I´d use Whom instead of Who in my last heading and that caught me off guard.     Have I really been saying it wrong all these…

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream and Eye Serum – Do you need them?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER Just when you think you have seen it all in terms of different retinoids, you stumble upon something new – in my case when I started testing the Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream and Eye Serum. If you look at the claims, you will see that Murad advertises with a „Tri-Active Retinol Technology for a gentle yet extra effective retinol treatment“ – but what does…

The Ordinary Buffet or Buffet + Copper Peptides – Which one is right for you?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I had a comment on the video where I showed The Ordinary „Buffet“ + Copper Peptides 1% for the first time that pretty much summed up why I had put off buying it for so long: „I don’t want to try this one. The original “Buffet” is so good already, if this one is even better, I know that I simply must buy it, and it is double the price!” Well, if…

Elemis Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial

Advertisement information: I received this item as part of my paid work with QVC Beauty Germany, but this post was not part of the contract. This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Fragrance in skincare? Controversial. Essential oils in skin care? Even more so. Yet here I am, reviewing the Elemis Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial. Which is, just in case you didn’t know yet, heavily fragranced and contains essential oils.     I am not going to discuss the matter of fragrance in skincare today though, just add…
