Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   You might already be aware of the fact that you can´t really drink your way to hydrated skin – water ingested enters the bloodstream quickly, increases blood volume quickly and triggers renal excretion quickly, which means translated: If you drink a lot of water in a short amount of time, you will need to pee, but not look any plumper. Why that is relevant in my review…

Metrin Skin Care – A cruelty and fragrance free skin care system – AD

Advertisement information: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and paid for content, which means I received money to write about the products. All opinions are my own. Please read disclaimer.   Quite a while ago I was approached by Metrin skin care to work with them on the relaunch of their products. They did a rebrand of the packaging in April (the formula stayed the same – more on that later) and this post should go live as part of the launch. But Anne, I can hear you say,…

pixi Peel and Polish Review – The scent issue

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   I usually don’t read other reviews when I am testing something. I want to make up my own mind first, then write a draft and afterwards look at what other people have to say. I did the same when writing my pixi Peel and Polish Review, and I have to say what I found surprised me. It surprised me so much that I had to double check…

Murad Essential C Cleanser – Captain America

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Captain America was always my least favourite Avenger, but I admit his shield was pretty cool. Why I mention that? Because I want to talk about the Murad Essential C Cleanser today, and that one is part of the Murad Environmental Shield line. “Environmental Shield”, you get it? Like Captain Americas shield, protecting the weak (in this case our skin cells) from external aggressors (in this case pollution…

pixi DetoxifEYE – Weird things

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 used to wearing weird things on my face. Fake scars, white contacts, pointy ears – I have worn it. And yes, there are pictures galore to prove it, but that is not todays topic. You might understand now that running around with green under eye patches isn´t very high up on my weird stuff list, so I was kind of surprised by the looks…

The Inkey List Skin Care – Complete Overview

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it and I bought all items myself. Please read disclaimer.   If you have been around here for a while now, you´ll know that The Inkey List has featured heavily on this blog already. Shortly after they launched last summer I took advantage of the fact that they started with 15 products under 10 £ and purchased everything that seemed fitting for my skin type.     There were a few new releases since…

Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Let me start of my series of in depth murad reviews with the one that is most confusing: The Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield. What confuses me about it? I don´t know which category to put it in. Is it a sunscreen or is it a primer? Is it makeup or is it skincare? We will come to that, and we will of course answer the most important question…

pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask Review – Maybe this time…

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 perks of running a beauty blog is being sent stuff to test. The worst part of running a beauty blog though is being sent stuff to test. Confused much? Hear me out. I will explain using the pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask as example.  I mean, everybody gets the “perks” part. New skincare arriving at your door step every month, what´s not to love?…

Instytutum Retin Oil – the problem with Instytutum skincare reviews

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features gifted items (PR-Samples). Please read disclaimer. I have published quite a few Instytutum Skincare Reviews already, but while I love the brand, I need to get something off my chest: An online version of the ingredient list is incredibly hard to find! A complete one, that is, one that doesn’t highlight the “key ingredients” only (whatever that may mean anyway). The website is no help here, not many retailers carry the brand and it isn’t as widely known that I…

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – Babylonian confusion

Advertisement info: This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. If you are a regular reader of my blog, and even more if you are subscribed to my You Tube channel, you will know that I am no native speaker. Most of the time that doesn’t lead to any difficulties. Not for me anyway, it is you that has to deal with my accent. But sometimes the difference between German and English gets really confusing. Take the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, for example. I wanted to write an introduction…
