Linklove: best beauty reads and news

In which I get up on that soapbox (rant incoming) about double standards bloggers apparently have when it comes to cruelty free products. There’s also a weird incubator program by one of the biggest cosmetics companies with lackluster results, beauty communities, beauty shopping in London, phone sex and alllll the beauty news you need!READ MORE

how to repurpose skincare products

What to do with skincare products you no longer like

There’s nothing worse than realizing that a skincare product you bought is no longer working. Or maybe you’re just no longer into it, have found something better or it was kind of a fail from the beginning. What to do? Barring the possibility of returning it, I found some ways to repurpose unloved, yet pricey products you can’t stomach to just bin.READ MORE

skincare capsule collection

My skincare capsule collection: a routine for sensitive combo skin

I’m well-known for a certain disdain towards the concept of capsule collections and minimalism. When it comes to skincare, though, I’m a firm believer in both a less is more approach and the capsule concept. It just makes sense – you want to have a skincare regime in which you can combine stuff that works for you, and you don’t want umpteen bottles and pots standing around and going off because you never reached for them. So my approach to skincare is to find stuff that works for me (doh) and products that can be easily combined for the many issues my skin may come up with.READ MORE

Seoul K-beauty shopping for beginners

Beauty shopping in Seoul – the 101 on K-Beauty shopping

Seoul has to be the most exciting city for beauty junkies to visit. There’s no city (that I know of) that’s as permeated with all things beauty like Seoul. I mean, there’s a whole neighbourhood dedicated to beauty shops! You’re also getting a hint about the general beauty-crazedness when you arrive at the airport – virtually every billboard was adverting cosmetics. Every. One. It’s very easy to get overwhelmed, so here’s my Seoul K-beauty shopping for beginners!

Link(love): Favourite blogposts and articles in March

Your monthly news of the beauty world (feat. Kat von D, MAC and Catrice this time around). Also the one where I share my favorite posts and articles about beauty (of course), and everything else. This month, you might have a peek at a feud over snail mucus (really!), how monks tried to cure the plague in the middle ages and came up with a cosmetics line that is still around today (really!!!), why minimalism is stupid and a brilliant portrait of the daily life of various Instagram influencers by Vogue that manages to be neither snidely arrogant nor condescending, but is totally on point. Have a look at my favourite reads lately.

where to find beauty products in Shanghai

A beauty addict in China: Beauty shopping in Shanghai

There’re many highs and lows in the life of an expat, and while living in Shanghai has many perks, beauty shopping definitely isn’t one of them. Especially not for a die-hard beauty addict. On the surface, it doesn’t look that bad – in Shanghai’s enormous shopping malls, there’s usually a Sephora or drugstore, and there’re also a lot of free-standing stores of the big Western beauty brands, and some Korean ones as well. But. There’re a lot of buts, actually.
