ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER Just when I finished a 12 weeks test of a LED mask from earlier this year, The Light Salon send over some more.

In addition, Timeless offered a few products from their Matrixyl line,…

SWEED Cloud Mascara – Cloud Nine | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   It is rare that I stray from my preferred mascara wand, yet the SWEED Cloud Mascara made me do just that and what can I say? I don’t regret it in the slightest!     I think it was Wayne Goss that said in one of his YouTube videos that it isn’t actually the formula you love about your favorite mascara,…

SWEED Satin Khol Eyeliner and Satin Eyeliner – Hit and Miss | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   The SWEED Satin Khol Eyeliner in Black and Dusty Brown and the SWEED Satin Eyeliner in Golden Beetle were somewhat unusual picks for me.     I wear liner every day and have done so for more than 20 years now, but it usually is black liquid liner with a wing. Something about that crisp line and the way it defines…

L’Oréal True Match Nude Plumping Tinted Serum – Makeup or skincare? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I haven’t done a foundation review in a long time, so let’s ease in with the L’Oréal True Match Nude Plumping Serum (which goes by a slightly different name here in Germany), which at least by name evokes the thought of skincare as it proudly features the 1% Pure Hyaluronic Acid on the label we all associate with hydration and other…

New in from SWEED, Queen Musia and Real Techniques

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   Last month was pretty makeup heavy, given that I usually talk about skincare most of the time here. But if you have been around here from the start, you might remember that this blog was about makeup as much as it was about skincare back in the days. I even had a series where I tried to recreate makeup looks from…

New In Beauty – NEWA, Alpha-H, The Ordinary, Maysama and more

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   How many skincare devices are too many? is what I asked at the beginning of March over on Insta after unboxing two new parcels I had received. As you are my people, the answers were unanimously “there is no such thing as too many skincare devices”, which is why I don’t feel bad presenting you the two new things in my…

New in Beauty – Currentbody, Catrice, The Ordinary and Lancome

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   When I started writing this post, I thought it wouldn’t be as short as the one last month that featured only two products, but would be makeup exclusive. I had replaced some drugstore favorites from Maybelline and Catrice, nothing too exciting, but hadn’t planned on getting new skin or hair care stuff. Well, that was before I heard that the Currentbody…

One year of empties – skincare, hair care and makeup I finished in 2023 | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   Collecting all the products you use up and throwing them in one huge Empties post at the end of the year always sounds like such a great idea – until you actually have to sit down with a huge bag full of trash to sort through.     Will I ever learn? Probably not. So without further ado, get yourself a…

New in beauty – Alpha-H, Balea, L’Oréal and Manhattan

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   There isn’t much to show you in October, which – being completely honest here – is a relief. My skincare drawers are bursting at the seams and now that the colder months are approaching, I can’t be as reckless with testing as I am during summer, my skin gets irritated much quicker once the temperatures drop. Still I have an exciting…
