ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS (PR) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.  So, what’s new from Purito? Or rather, what was new from Purito in the first half of 2021 that I am only now getting around to review because… yeah, because reasons? It is the Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum, not to be confused with their previous Vitamin C serum that contained 10 % Ascorbic Acid. The old one has been discontinued and has been replaced by this…

The Inkey List Tranexamic Acid Night Treatment | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND PR-SAMPLES. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   In my last haul (you can find it here) I showed you The Inkey List Tranexamic Acid Night Treatment, purchased for my sister as part of a skincare routine to target hyperpigmentation. When I looked through the archives though, I realized I still owe you the detailed review!     The only explanation is that I purchased and used it in 2020, when my whole schedule went out of…

Geek & Gorgeous 101 C-Glow Serum | Doctors Review

This blog post uses affiliate links and PR-Samples (gifted items). I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. My search for the perfect Vitamin C serum has been well-documented on here, and whenever I told you guys about why my latest acquisition hadn’t quite lived up to my (admittedly high) expectations, there was one that was recommended over and over: The Geek & Gorgeous 101 C-Glow Serum.     So when someone in the comments told me that Geek & Gorgeous is a Hungarian brand and even has…

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Fancy ingredients are no longer limited to high priced brands it seems – The Inkey List recently released their 15% Vitamin C and EGF Brightening Serum to prove that. EGF stands for Epidermal Growth Factor and is one of the up and coming buzz ingredients for 2020. I will go into more detail about what they can (and can not) do later, but so far they were found…

Tan Luxe Super Glow Hyaluronic Face Tan Serum – Summer in a bottle

Advertisement info: This blog post contains affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   If you hear pale skin and think “english rose”, let me tell you that not all of us have this porcelain hue. No, some of us are pale and yellow toned, and that quickly turns into “looking sick” rather than any floral analogies.     So to prevent people asking me if I am ill whenever I go makeup free, I heavily rely on my new found favorite: The Tan Luxe…

What is a serum and do I need one?

ADVERTISEMENT INFORMATION: THIS BLOG POST FEATURES PR-SAMPLES/ GIFTED ITEMS AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I try to research my video topics through several different sources, one of them being PubMed. If you are not familiar with PubMed, it is a tool that allows you to search through published articles in scientific journals, and I used it heavily when writing my thesis. It is however not always the best tool for cosmetic research targeting the most basic questions like: What is a serum?     Why? Because in medicine,…

Instytutum Super Serum – One serum to do it all?

Advertisement information: This blog post features PR-Samples/ gifted items and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I am going to address the elephant in the room first: Yes, the Instytutum Super Serum is expensive. It is not the most expensive serum out there, but 129$ for 30 ml of product is something that makes me pause before I purchase. I will tell you straight away: I don’t think any skincare product needs to be that expensive. But, and that is a very personal but, it might be worth it.  …

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. If you had created something that was such a success that hunderts of bottles were sold each year, would you resist the urge to create other products around it? I couldn´t, so I totally get why pixi skintreats took their best selling Glow Tonic and created the pixi Glow Tonic Collection, one of which, the pixi Glow Tonic Serum, I am going to review today.
