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   Fermented ingredients are huge in Korean skincare, and so is Centella Asiatica as ingredient. Well, the SKIN1004 Probio-Cica Essence Toner offers fermented Centella Asiatica – I was intrigued. If you have seen my post about fermented ingredients, you know that the fermentation process breaks down the initial structure into smaller pieces like amino acids and proteins, which, depending on what you…

True Botanicals Supersea Firming and Lifting Treatment – Names | 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 know it shouldn’t play a role, but I am hugely influenced by what a product is called. Take the True Botanicals Supersea Firming and Lifting Treatment for example. Not only does it say “firming and lifting”, which catches my attention ever since I passed the 40 years mark a while ago, no, it is also called “treatment”, which – admit…

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 admit before I received the True Botanicals Chebula Active Serum, I had never heard about Chebula as a skincare ingredient. Or fruit. Apparently it grows on a tree native to Southern and South East Asia and has been used internally in Ayurvedic Medicine for it’s great antioxidant capacities.   True Botanicals claims to be the one of the first brands…

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I understand that not everyone is willing to spend a lot of money on a cleanser – the Murad Soothing Oat and Peptide Cleanser is not cheap – but for me a great sensory experience is worth spending a little extra. After all I use a cleanser every single day and especially at night, when the day has been rough, a…

facetheory Supergel Moisturiser Oil-Free PRO vs Original – Which one is better? | 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 was really lucky that I got both the original facetheory Supergel Moisturizer Oil-frrr as well as the Supergel Moisturizer PRO that promises more actives, but also is quite a bit more expensive than the original. That way I get to compare them side by side and am able to tell you what has changed – other than the ingredients. Does…

facetheory Lumizela Azelaic Acid A10 Serum – Breakfast serum | 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   When you look at the ingredient list, the facetheory Lumizela Azelaic Acid A10 Serum sounds like breakfast. At least based on what I eat during the week, you don’t find fancy croissants here. Because other than the Azelaic Acid, which is derived from wheat,there are quite a few other things included that have potential skin benefits, but are also healthy and…

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   You might have noticed on their website that many facetheory products now come as original version and as PRO version, in which according to the brand “their peptide power was increased”. For some that meant the addition of peptides to previously peptide-free products, for others like the facetheory Polypep Collagen Boosting Serum Pro, that additional peptides were added to enhance performance.…

Alpha-H High Tide Water Cream – Unexpected | 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 admit the Alpha-H High Tide Water Cream felt a little out of season for me when I received it, given that we are heading into winter here and most of my water based lightweight textures have been rotated out until next spring.     But as the brand is Australian it makes more sense – they are headed into summer…

facetheory Ocuwake Eye Cream PRO – Reformulated | 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 kind of hard to review a product like the facetheory Ocuwake Eye Cream PRO that you only get to know after it was reformulated. “Increased peptide power!” is what they say, and they increased the price quite a bit for that. Now I can imagine you would like to know if that was worth it, but I can’t tell.…

LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask_EX – milk and honey | 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 question whether or not products like the LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask_EX are worth a separate category in your routine isn’t one I can easily answer. They belong to the category of products I haven’t quite figured out yet. I mean, I know how to use them, but I don’t know which slot in my routine they should fill – face mask,…
