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.

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.

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.

Have a look at my favourite reads lately.

The best and worst of 2016

While we all very likely will agree that 2016 was a pretty horrible year generally, I look at this year’s beauty experiences and guys, I don’t know. 2016 had some pretty fantastic products.

Let’s have a look at the best beauty products of 2016, some un-favourites and the ones that were solidly meh.READ MORE
