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…

Taking out the trash 16 – Empties February 2018

This blogpost contains PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. When I was filming this video, I was pretty content with myself. Not only did I like the way my hair looked – call me vain, but these things can make or break a day -, but I was satisfied with having yet another batch of products finished to show you. After starting to make a conscious effort to actually finish products and not let the last bit go to waste while saving it for a special day, I felt…

Fall Favorites 2017 – Being unique

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   Are we ever as unique as we like to think? Most of us, especially those that have any kind of creative outlet online, like to think that their content is fresh and special and easily distinguable from others. We put “our own twist” on things, have a theme in our pictures and invent fancy names for even fancier blog post series. And then, one day, we take a step back and realize we are doing what everyone around…

Exfoliation – Why, when and with what

It is no secret that skin care is my passion. That is probably due to the fact that I am a physician and I love the scientific aspect, but I guess being 37 and always having had problematic skin is a big reason as well. I believe that no makeup will look good as long as the skin beneath it is neglected, and even though I am not afraid to age (the only way out of it is dying young, you know), I want my skin to look its best at…

New In March 2016 – I have been shopping

I know, I know. I have told you many times that my collection is overflowing, that I really need to cut back on buying new stuff and that I own more skincare than any sane person probably should.   But in my defense: I really needed to restock on some things, and I DO have another Empties video just around the corner, so… Oh well, I just did a little haul-ing.

My evening skincare routine – Winter 2016

You know, it sometimes takes some time to actually convince myself to face the camera completely without makeup, but as my appearance improves during the course of the video, I relax. Now doing it the other way round, starting with a full face of makeup and turning myself into a concealer-less, scrubbed face person with oil all over was strange, to say the least.   Aktivieren Sie JavaScript um das Video zu sehen.https://youtu.be/qHJRiGJRNlI   But you asked for it and here it is: My evening skincare routine.

Favorite products 2015 Part I – Skincare, hair care, body care

It is the final days of 2015, a time spend on reflecting and looking back, so I figured I´d share my musings with you and show you my favorite products of 2015. To help you decide what you want to watch, I divided it into two videos: One featuring skin-, hair and body care and one talking all things makeup. That way I was able to keep them short(er) as well, which is always a bonus. Today we are covering skin- hair and body care, makeup will be up on the 3rd of…

Taking out the trash III

Time to throw away my empties once again this year. And because I don’t believe in waiting for New Years Eve to start something new, I figured that would be the perfect opportunity to film my first ever YouTube video! Aktivieren Sie JavaScript um das Video zu sehen.https://youtu.be/_4v4WiImIiA   So if you want to see me “ahm” and “äh”, struggle for words and get sad about Body Butter, click play or watch it here on YouTube. A list of everything mentioned plus links to the reviews are below.

If it hurts, it works – Sunday Riley Good Genes

You know the saying: If it hurts, it works? Or: Medicine has to taste bitter to be effective? Well, in the case of Sunday Rileys Good Genes Serum and Mask, the saying must be something like: If it stinks, it brings. Results, that is. Sunday Riley Good Genes Serum and Mask (Sample size pictured, not the original bottle!) Because it really is good skin in an instant. But it stinks like someone puked into your bottle.

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser – The not so foaming face cleanser

Back in the day, I was all about foaming cleansers. I longed for the squeaky clean feeling they can give you, and if anyone would have told me that the oils on my face were actually important for my skins balance, fighting the signs of aging and protecting it against bacteria I would not have believed it. Looking back, it seems very eighties: Effective, strong, uncompromising. But this is 2014, and my preference has changed. Not only am I no longer wearing neon triangle earrings (I know they are back fashion wise, I just choose to ignore it),…
