best hydrating serums and essences

Hydrating serums battle! East vs. West! Serums vs. Essences! Pt. 1

We’re veering quickly into that time of the year that wreaks havoc on sensitive skin. Outside you’ll have chilling winds, while inside you’ll have the driest air possible, thanks to the heater blasting with full force – what’s a girl to do? (Apart from swaddling her face in sheet masks on a regular basis.) Hydrating serums to the rescue! But wait, there’re also hydrating essences that all those smooth-skinned K-Beauty stars rely on… Maybe those are the way to go?! We tested three hydrating essences and three serums. See who’ll emerge the winner!READ MORE

five quick and easy ways to get better skin

Five easy ways to get better skin

I’ve struggled for years with my quite temperamental skin, and from the first skincare adventures to to the somewhat settled state my skin is nowadays, I read voraciously about the topic. Here’re some things I picked up along the way: my easy ways to get better skin!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

Summer travel essentials that you'll really need

Summer travel essentials – what you’ll really need

I recently saw a Summer Travel Essentials blogpost that featured toe rings and stationery, and while I don’t know your life and if toe rings are an absolute essential to you, it got me thinking. What are my travel essentials, for summer or other times of the year? As I’ve just returned from a three week trip, I’ve got a few things on my mind I’d love to share with you – let’s just say I’ve learned from my mistakes!READ MORE

L’Oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence City Face Mist review

L’Oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence City Face Mist review

The latest news on various sunscreen mists available and an in-depth review of L’Oreal UV Perfect Aqua Essence City Face Mist, with a comparison to Bioderma’s sunscreen mist (in-depth review here). Sunscreen face mists have become the unicorns of the beauty world. Don’t you think? Last year it was Bioderma that released one, but only in France, and it was hellishly complicated to get our hands on it. This year, L’Oreal brought one out, but only in Asia, and La Roche-Posey (LRP) did, but only in the UK. So it’s starting to seem a bit unicorn-like – you’ve never seen one, but there’re people who have, and in far-away countries you might find them… Ok, maybe I’m going too far with that particular comparison now!

Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF30 Moisturising anti-UV mist – a review + giveaway

Imagine, a moisturising spray without any alcohol or perfume that has a SPF 30 that you can apply OVER your makeup.

My summer face: Makeup products that hold up well during hot days

I don’t know about you, but for me summer’s all fine and dandy until I’ve experience that icky feeling of makeup melting off my face. Europe was recently hit by a proper heat wave – here in Germany we had around 40°C/104F – and while I enjoy this kind of weather while I’m on vacation and lounging at the pool, having to conduct your daily life in this heat was challenging. Especially if you’re loving makeup and can’t think of what makeup to wear during extreme heat.READ MORE
