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…

New in Beauty April 2020 – The Inkey List, Self Tan and an indulgent repurchase

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Way back in February, around my birthday, I used the discount codes I had for a few beauty purchases. Mostly skincare (quelle surprise!), but also some makeup bits, none of which have been shared on here yet. What a delay, but what can I say, sharing new beauty stuff suddenly took a back seat when March came around.     But to give you an idea of what…

The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm Review – Not boring at all

Advertisement info: This blog post contains affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Growing up, Oat Meal was the epitome of boring. Plain oat meal for breakfast. Oat meal colored hair. Whichever context it appeared it, there was nothing exciting about it.     Until skincare lovers learned about the soothing properties of colloidal oat meal, and suddenly products like The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm made oats glamorous and the thing to have. But is this cleanser really as good as everyone says?…

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…

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…

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 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…

THE INKEY LIST Hyaluronic Acid – Basics

This blog post uses affiliate links and thus qualifies as advertisement.  Please read disclaimer. It is the basics that count. If you don´t have a solid foundation, you´ll never be able to build a lasting house. Not that I know even the tiniest bit about building a house – I am hard pressed to even draw one that my kids recognize – but it is a subject that I have thought a lot about over the last few weeks. Ahm, skincare basics, that is. Not building a house.     Ever…

THE INKEY LIST Vitamin C Serum – More and more

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   Bigger is better – I am old enough to remember those slogans. Back when I was young (CENTURIES ago, people!), minimalism wasn´t really a thing. You had to always have more. The newest, the latest, the biggest.     It didn´t matter if you did need it. Or even use it, for that matter. You just needed to HAVE it. And while minimalism (and low-buys) seem to be everywhere these days, I feel like some of that more is more…

THE INKEY LIST Rosehip Oil – For the soul

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Once the New Year Excitement has worn off, all we are left with is the cold, dark and grey reality of winter in Germany. No snow covered slopes to brighten the outdoors here, at least not on a regular!     When going outside seems to be no fun at all, and you need not only protective layers of clothing, but also protective layers for your soul. Now don´t tell me you don´t know what I am talking about, chocolate is…
