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.

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…

THE INKEY LIST Retinol – New beginnings

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   The first review of the year feels a little like the first snow. Everything looks different, feels different, and you are suddenly very conscious about the footprints you are going to leave.     Well, after the first hours of winter wonderland everything will turn into the same soggy mess it was before, slightly grey, really wet and clammy. At least this is true for German first snow, so I guess it will be true for this German Beauty Blog as…

THE INKEY LIST Caffeine Serum – Are you extra?

  Ths blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer Now if the use of a separate eye cream is already controversial, how about using a specific serum before that? I can already see online wars raging over unexpecting blogs, fighting for wether or not the extra expense is worth it or just, well, extra.     I won´t take a stand on that today (you know I even deny the need for a separate moisturizer on my skin most of the year), but instead just present you with some…
