Is the pixi Clarity Lotion good for oily skin? | 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. One of the questions I get repeatedly is: What is the best moisturizer for oily skin? And while I have addressed the question whether or not you actually need a moisturizer if your skin is oily (see the blogpost here) or shared my picks in my skincare routines – spoiler: In the summer I skip the cream and only use a sunscreen – I figured I would…

pixi Clarity Concentrate Serum – Doctors Review | 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. There has been quite a debate about the percentages of active ingredients lately. Some brands take a very straight-forward approach and share their whole formula, while others either just disclose the percentage of their key ingredients or nothing at all.     Now it is important to say that I do not believe in the “more is more” approach that many consumers seem to take, picking the brand…

pixi Clarity Tonic vs pixi Glow Tonic Review – Which one is best for you? | 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 Tonics are what pixi is best known for, after all their success started with the introduction of the famous pixi Glow Tonic that I myself have gone through countless bottles of. So whenever pixi launches a new collection like their latest, the pixi Clarity collection, I am extra excited to test the Tonic included.     Not all of them have convinced me, but there are a…

pixi Clarity Cleanser Review – Great for #maskne? | 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 have had a few requests to give some advice about dealing with #maskne, the breakouts that occur from frequently wearing a face covering. But as there are so many amazing videos on that topic already, I thought I´d give you a product review instead. You see, using a Salicylic Acid face wash is among the top three tips for #maskne struggles, and as it happens I…

dear klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner compared to the Unscented version | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The dear klairs Supple Preparation Toner has been around for more than six years now, and it is only now that I have gotten around to reviewing it. The main reason is that I tend to shy away from most things that fall under the category „Korean Beauty“, not because I assume these products are bad, but because I feel like I am too old for the mostly „kawaii“ packaging.    …

dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask – Doctors Review | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I admit that I am no longer a regular user of face masks, so if I finish one AND repurchase, it has to be really good. Or, as is the case with the dear klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask, very good and convenient to use – I just don´t have time for annoying extra steps anymore.     The klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask actually already featured here on this channel,…

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Fancy ingredients are no longer limited to high priced brands it seems – The Inkey List recently released their 15% Vitamin C and EGF Brightening Serum to prove that. EGF stands for Epidermal Growth Factor and is one of the up and coming buzz ingredients for 2020. I will go into more detail about what they can (and can not) do later, but so far they were found…

Good Molecules Silicone Free Priming Moisturizer – What is it good for? | 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 am not the biggest fan of “free from” claims. In fact, I did a whole blogpost stating that the “free from” marketing is actually dangerous. That is, however, not the reason why it took me so long to film a review on the Good Molecules Silicone Free Priming Moisturizer. No, the reason is that I struggled to determine whether or not I liked it.     First…

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…
