Benzene – a human carcinogen found in sunscreen! What now? | Ask Doctor Anne

The cancer-causing chemical Benzene was found in many different sunscreens – that was the headline that made my DMs explode when I was on a supposedly chilled family hiking vacation in Bavaria. A trip where I, obviously, packed a ton of sunscreens to slather myself and the kids in every single day.       So did I immediately throw those bottles away? Of course not. Did I still apply sunscreen like I used to? Of course I did! Does that mean I don’t think it is an issue? No,…

Geek & Gorgeous 101 Liquid Hydration – Doctors Review | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I kid you not, the “Liquid” in the Geek & Gorgeous 101 Liquid Hydration Toner is really an accurate description of how this toner is in texture. The first time I used the bottle I opened it and energetically poured some into my hand, covering myself, the sink and parts of the bathroom floor in product.     Good thing it is very reasonably priced, doing something like…

Geek & Gorgeous Jelly Joker Low pH Gentle Cleanser Review | Doctor Anne

This blogpost uses affiliate links and contains PR (gifted items). I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I think you can learn a lot about a brand’s philosophy by their cleansers.
