PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   When Geek and Gorgeous releases a peptide serum, you can bet I need to get my hands on it. The Geek and Gorgeous Power Peptides is different to others I have tried both in texture and in price and after using it every day since it was released I am ready to share my thoughts.     Just as a reminder,…

Skintegra Lunar Serum Concentrate – Morning or night? | 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 don’t know about you, but when the name of the product is Skintegra Lunar Serum Concentrate, so with a reference to Luna or the moon, I assume it is meant for night time use only.     And really the brand says on the website it is ideal for evening use, but after thorough testing I can tell you that…

facetheory Polypep Collagen Boosting Serum PRO – increased peptide power | 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   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.…

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.…

pixi DetoxifEYE Serum – a morning pick me up | 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   You know how I feel about the claim of products “detoxifying” anything (if somehow you don’t: it is a scam, your body detoxifies via liver and kidneys, surely not with the help of skincare or supplements), so it took me a while to warm up to the pixi DetoxifEYE Serum.     It does contain caffeine though, just like my long…

Real Barrier Extreme Essence Toner – My precious! | 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, BUT THE VIDEO LINKED IS SPONSORED. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER Back in December 2022 I received a few products from the brand Real Barrier, a Korean skincare brand I hadn’t heard of before. As December is a busy time, I kind of forgot about them until I one night, on a whim, reached for a sheet mask they had sent me.     I don’t often…

Clinical Skin Polypeptide Firming Serum – Lovely, but… | 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 I have used pricey skincare in the past, but the Clinical Skin Polypeptide Firming Serum is among the most expensive stuff to ever grace my face. You would imagine it comes in a bottle made from pure gold, but while the packaging has a luxury air to it, being weighty and white and silver, that’s not the explanation.  …

pixi Dream-yEye Replenishing PM patches – beauty sleep | 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 think by now I have three different tubes of pixi eye patches in my fridge, the latest being the pixi Dream-yEye Replenishing PM patches. Now just to be clear, you don’t need three different ones, to be honest you don’t even need one tube to have a good skincare routine, and you surely don’t need to keep them in the…

NIOD Non-Acid Acid Precursor 15% – What is it? | 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 it rarely happens that I look at a product and have no clue what it is supposed to do, but the NIOD Non-Acid Acid Precursor 15% left me confused. What is an acid precursor? What is it supposed to do in the skin?     Where do the 15% come from? And where do I fit it into my routine?…
