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 am here for the play of words in the new Alpha-H Dawn to Dusk SPF 50+ Serum name. Even though it means I constantly say Dusk till Dawn when talking about it, but what can I say? I was 17 when that film was released, and boy was I impressed.     Tattooed George Clooney, Salma Hayek with…

The Inkey List 10% Urea Dry and Rough Skin Solution – Claims | 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 tell you The Inkey Lists 10% Urea Moisturizer – Dry and Rough Skin Solution reminds me of a foot cream, but in a good way, that isn’t really going to sell it to you, is it?     It isn’t the texture, just to be clear, the texture is lovely and not similar to the really thick stuff I…

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   Out of all the Skintegra products I have tried, the Skintegra Infrared Serum was the only one that didn’t work for me as expected.     That doesn’t mean it is a bad product, on the contrary, I can see it work very well for someone else, but there are a few things I think you should know, and today I…

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…

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…

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…
