The reformulated The Ordinary 2% Hyaluronic Acid + B5 Serum – improved? | 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   If a brand reformulates a crowd favorite, it isn’t always well perceived by their loyal fans. In case of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Serum  though it led to much applause even before it was out.     I guess the main reason for that was that during their virtual launch event they made it absolutely clear that their…

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…

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.

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 Exaglow Serum with 5% Tranexamic Acid – a great supporting act | 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 have mentioned the facetheory Exaglow Serum in three different posts already without giving you a proper review, and the only explanation I have is that I received it at the end of summer when I usually switch the focus of my routine to fighting hyperpigmentation. (You can find them here: The 10 best ingredients to fight hyperpigmentation, The best way…

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I can’t imagine you have NOT heard of The Ordinary Soothing & Barrier Support Serum yet, the bright pink serum has been all over the internet for weeks now. It took me a while to properly test it though, as the effect on the skin isn’t as easily to judge as it is with other products.     Good thing we…

TIA’M My Signature C Source Serum – special | 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 I opened my first bottle of the tia’m My Signature C Source Serum, two things made me pause. Firstly: It really smells like lemonade. And second: It also sounds like a soft drink when you twist open the cap, as it fizzes quite a bit. Nothing I have come across in other serums so far, so I admit I was…

innisfree Intensive Hydrating Serum with Green Tea Seed | 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 innisfree Intensive Hydrating Serum with Green Tea Seed was what I took with me whenever bringing my Vitamin C was not an option – when we went camping for example, so the bottle would have been exposed to light, temperature changes and all the other changes fickle L-Ascorbic Acid wouldn‘t tolerate without turning one me.     Whenever that happens, I…

Beekman 1802 Smooth Booster Willow Bark Exfoliating Serum – hundreds of years ago | 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 Beekman 1802 might sport the 1802 in the brand name, but the company itself was founded much later. It gets its name from the farm the products like the Beekman 1802 Smooth Booster I want to talk about today were created. Created as in “thought into existence”, thankfully no one here claims to mix them by hand at the kitchen table. They…
