elf Pure Skin Moisturizer – I am a snob | 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 am really fuzzy when it comes to moisturizers, so the elf Pure Skin Moisturizer didn’t have it easy convincing me. Not that I have found many bad moisturizers during my years of testing skincare, on the contrary. I have found many that do exactly what they are supposed to do, and most of them do that quite well.    …

Skintegra Melt Milk Cleanser – Surprising texture | 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 Skintegra Melt Milk Cleanser might be called milk, but certainly doesn’t look like one in the bottle. I mean, look at that, what is your first though? Gel – at least that was mine.     Actually my first thought was “Ew”, as for some reason the bottle had leaked during shipping and had product all over it, but even…

elf Pure Skin Cleanser – the workhorse | 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   Come winter, my skin can get easily irritable – the mixture between dry air, cold air, indoor heating and Tretinoin will do that – so it is the perfect time to test out products like the elf Pure Skin Cleanser, aimed at sensitive skin.     After all cleansing is non negotiable, but also a step that can make things worse…

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Probio-Cica Enrich Cream – Smooth | 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   Strengthening the skin barrier is a claim we hear quite often these days, and the SKIN1004 Probio-Cica Enrich Cream is no exception. Now there are different ways a product could aim to do that, and one of them is by replacing the skins lipids needed to form that healthy barrier.     Or, as the website puts it, by “cloning the…

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Probio-Cica Intensive Ampoule – Sedation | 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 seen skincare claim to sooth or calm irritated skin, but never of a product to sedate the skin. The SKIN1004 Probio-Cica Intensive Ampoule though does exactly this. Now you may know I have worked as anaesthesiologist for many years, so sedation was basicaly my bread and butter, but of course using entirely different products.     Now the choice…

ZIIP HALO vs ZIIP GX – 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   If you have been around for a while, you know I have been using the ZIIP GX since November 2022, when it replaced the NuFACE I had been using until then. Well, in September 2023 I switched to the ZIIP Halo, the new and apparently improved version that will replace the ZIIP GX and OX over time.     What did…

Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream – Good luck and happiness | 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   Whenever a product comes with a spatula, I immediately lose it. Or rather, toss it because I know I won’t use it anyway. In case of the Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream though, I kept it. Not because I need it, you can scoop some out with your fingers just as well as you can with the spatula, no, because…

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Probio-Cica Essence Toner – Why essence toner? | 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   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 Renew Pure Radiance Oil – Posh | 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 True Botanicals Renew Pure Radiance Oil actually comes in a version for normal to dry skin, which is the Renew one I am talking about today, and a version for normal to oily skin called Clear Pure Radiance Oil. Both differ slightly in ingredients, but as I have only tried one, I can’t really comment on the differences in texture.…

Murad Daily Defense Colloidal Oatmeal Cream – I expected to love it, 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   A moisturizer with a press-down lid – the Murad Daily Defense Colloidal Oatmeal Cream and I were off to a great start. Because even though I don’t have any issues with jar packaging, this version is my favorite.     With that and the other two products from the same line – the cleanser (review here) and the treatment (review here)…
