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…

Avon Distillery Complete Overview

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. There were many trends last that will accompany us into the next decade, “clean beauty” and “sustainability” being two of them. So it is no surprise that more and more brands try to position themselves as supporters of one or even both – my latest example? The launch of the “clean, green, vegan friendly” Avon Distillery line, all packaged in sustainable packaging as the brand claims.    …

pixi Milky Tonic – What is Jojoba Milk?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I take pride in having a good understanding in skin care ingredients, but ever so often I happen upon one that leaves me puzzled. Take the pixi Milky Tonic for example – it says on the label that it contains Jojoba Milk. And while I am well aware of Jojoba Oil and its benefits for the skin, I admit I never had heard about Jojoba Milk before. And…

The Inkey List Snow Mushroom Review – Out of a fairy tale?

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   I don’t know about you, but a skincare product that comes with a good story gets me all the time. I am fully aware that I am falling for the oldest marketing trick ever here, but when I read that the Snow Mushroom or Silver Ear Mushroom was part of Concubine Yang Kuei-feis skincare routine, and that she was part of the Four Beauties of Ancient China, I instantly knew I had to have The Inkey Lists Snow…

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…
