Is the Timeless 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum worth the hype? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS PRODUCT WAS PURCHASED WITH MY OWN MONEY. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER Whenever I talk about Vitamin C Serums, there is one that appears as a recommendation in my comments: The Timeless 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid, apparently a cult favorite for many in the US.     It is not readily available in Germany, so I had to have it shipped over with my wishtrend order, but you know me – if everyone tells me that something is…

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 The old one has been discontinued and has been replaced by this…

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…

Do you really need a special sunscreen for the lips? | Ask Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. We talked at length about the best sunscreens for the face, we talked about sunscreen for your hair, is there still a topic we didn’t cover yet? Of course there is – sunscreen for the lips!     But why do your lips need extra sun protection? Are sunburned lips even a thing? And why do I think a dedicated lip product is recommended? All that and my favorite product is what…

Summer skincare routine using only Skin1004 and Tretinoin | Doctor Anne

If you have oily and acne-prone skin, you know how much of a struggle finding the right skincare routine for summer can be. The heat makes us even more oily, which along with sweat triggers breakouts, and at the same time wind, sun and being outdoors can lead to irritation and dehydration, especially when paired with prescription acne treatments like Tretinoin. What you…

Ultraviolette Supreme Screen Hydrating Facial Skinscreen – SPF from Australia | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. The Ultraviolette Supreme Screen Hydrating Facial Skinscreen I wanted to show you today comes all the way from Australia. Well, this particular one doesn’t, I had it shipped over from the UK, where Ultraviolette is available, but the brand is Australian. Why? For two reasons. One, Michelle from LabMuffinBeautyScience recommended it and she is my favorite source of sunscreen knowledge. And two: If there is one country that really has to put…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-Age Super UV Face Protection Cream SPF50 – that name is quite a mouthful! I am sure you have heard it before though, as Caroline Hirons mentioned it on her Instagram in early April and it immediately sold out almost everywhere in the UK.     Lucky me living in Germany had no issues finding it in stock though, so here I am with a review of this affordable…

Heliocare 360° Water Gel SPF 50+ – the best sunscreen for oily skin? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOGPOST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.  Last summer I did a whole series answering your sunscreen questions, and one of the videos I did was on sunscreen pills as in pills you take for added sun protection. One brand I mentioned was Heliocare – actually the parent brand is Cantabria Labs, a pharmaceutical company, and Heliocare is their sun protection line, featuring the “Photoprotection Capsules” as well as different actual sunscreens.   As I had never tried anything from…
