PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I will admit that I purchased the La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B 5+ SPF 50 by accident – I wanted the original one to see if the recent reformulation had made it worse (it didn’t), but because the tubes look incredibly similar and I was in a rush, I overlooked the tiny “SPF 50” on the tube. (YES, it is bright…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: PRODUCTS DISCUSSED IN THIS BLOGPOST ARE PURCHASED MYSELF AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   It is always risky to reformulate a cult classic, so when La Roche Posay announced they would come out with a new version of their Cicaplast Baume B+ Repairing Balm in 2022, the skincare community did hold its breath. Would the 2022 version be as good as the old one? Or would we, once again, end up with a product that didn’t…

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I often get asked about peptides in skincare, and while I personally use Copper Peptides in my routine year round, I understand that given the lack of evidence we have, most people would rather try something like the Balea Beauty Expert Day Cream with 3% Peptid-Solution & 1% Ectoin  before investing into some of the pricier products out there.

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   When it comes to cleansers, texture and scent is as important to me as the actual performance is – I love something luxurious for the mundane task of getting rid of the daily makeup and grime, it helps me unwind at night. Now the First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser is unscented, but the texture, a pearly white whipped cream like…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: PRODUCTS DISCUSSED IN THIS BLOGPOST ARE PURCHASED MYSELF AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER I did a post on dry and flaky skin on the face in December (you can find it here) that triggered quite a few questions about how to deal with the excessive dryness that happens to the hands during winter.     And while basically the same principles apply, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to talk about your hands in a separate post:…

It is supposed to be a routine made up of only favorites, the basics I wouldn’t want to be without, and each year I come back to it and see if anything has changed…

One year of empties – skincare, hair care and makeup I finished in 2022 | Doctor Anne

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   Over the years I have published many empties posts – I know not everybody likes them, but with the amount of products I test, it actually says something when a product stays in my rotation long enough for me to finish it.     This year I decided on a special project: Collect everything I finish and do a “One year…
