Dr Sam Flawless Daily Sunscreen SPF 50 – Why I am not a fan | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO:  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    There are no rules in skincare. Guidelines and suggestions, yes, but almost no hard rules. Except this one: If you don’t apply enough product, you will not get the sun protection claimed on the bottle. (More info: How much sunscreen do you really need?)     And “enough product” is usually more than you would have thought. So it is handy that…

Zelens Power D Fortifying & Restoring Vitamin D Serum Concentrate

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST WERE PURCHASED MYSELF AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I tend to talk about skincare that is more on the affordable side on this channel, and the Zelens Power D Fortifying & Restoring Vitamin D Serum Concentrate definitely does not fall into this category. It is part of the Zelens Vitamin Alphabet featuring Power A to Power E, but while A, B, C and E are pretty common ingredients in skincare,…

Hylamide High-Efficiency Face Cleaner – Weird Stuff! | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO:  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 first looked at the Hylamide High-Efficiency Face Cleaner, I thought the packaging was the weirdest thing I had ever seen. It has a twist up cap that doesn’t come off, but simply allows you to pour out product. Very technical for the lack of a better word, and not something I have seen a lot of used in skincare.  …

The Inkey List PHA Toner – Who is it best for? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THE PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST WERE PURCHASED BY ME. LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER I did an ingredient deep dive on polyhydroxy acids or PHA two weeks ago, really getting into the research behind this kind of acids, and then figured: Which better time than to follow that up with a review of The Inkey List PHA Toner, one of the few products on the market that actually use PHA separately instead of mixing them in…

Dr Sam Flawless Neutralizing Gel – Who is it for? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THE PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST WERE PURCHASED BY ME, BUT I HAVE RECEIVED PR FROM DR SAM SKINCARE IN THE PAST. LINKS USED MIGHT BE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I admit, when I purchased the Dr Sam Flawless Neutralizing Gel I wanted it to solve a very specific problem, and sadly, it didn’t. It DID help me with something else though, and there is a specific group of people that I think will benefit a lot from…

The Inkey List Alpha Arbutin Serum – The secret weapon against hyperpigmentation? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS PRODUCT WAS PURCHASED WITH MY OWN MONEY. LINKS USED MAY BR AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   Summer is gone and what is left to remind me is the stubborn hyperpigmentation on my temples that keeps reappearing no matter how diligently I apply my sunscreen. And yes, hyperpigmentation is usually not something you get rid of once and for all, no matter how hard you try. Prevention is key here! (More info: What is hyperpigmentation?)     What better…

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…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND PR-SAMPLES. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER You know I am all about soothing the skin and gentle skincare, especially if you are on prescription acne treatments, and in two of my recent posts I talked about how beneficial Colloidal Oatmeal and Centella Asiatica Extract can be for that.   Well, the friendly people at Geek & Gorgeous must have read my mind, as one of their newest releases is the Geek & Gorgeous 101 Stress Less…

Purito Pure Vitamin C Serum and Plainet Squalane Oil 100 | Doctors Review

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…
