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

Do you know this story? Of how you loved a product so much but the next better one comes along and you just forgot about it? Well, I do, so many times.

best beauty products of 2016

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. Either new ones, or ones that weren’t new but new to me. There also were some pretty crap ones, too. Let’s have a look at the best beauty products of 2016, some un-favourites and the ones that were solidly meh.READ MORE

holy grail skincare

Holy grails I buy again and again – skincare edition

Holy grail skincare, people. Holy grails. It was actually very easy to decide what’s going to be in this post – I just had to look into my backup drawer. “Backup drawer?!” I hear somebody explain incredulously. Yup, backup drawer – as I have to import nearly everything while I’m living in Shanghai, I actually have a backup drawer (or two. One’s in the fridge). So here’s what I buy again and again, because this is the good stuff – my skincare holy grails. Or the products I’d weep over if they ever were to become discontinued.READ MORE

Glamour Shopping Week Shopping List

Glamour Shopping Week 2016 Shopping List

Anders als in den letzten Jahren gibt es dieses Mal keine ausführlichen Shopvorstellungen mit unseren Empfehlungen, was sich bei der Glamour Shopping Week wirklich lohnt. Dieses Mal seht ihr hier unsere Wunsch-/ Einkaufslisten. Das hat mehrere Gründe – ihr könnt hier und hier in unseren Empfehlungen stöbern, wenn Euch ein Angebot eines Anbieters besonders interessiert, und ihr wissen wollt, was unsere Empfehlungen für diesen Shop sind. Das ändert sich nun aber nicht so dramatisch, dass es einen erneuten Post erfordern würde. Außerdem habe ich das Gefühl, dass das Angebot zwar immer größer wird, die einzelnen Deals jedoch schlechter, und da macht es mehr Sinn, sich auf die Rosinen im Kuchen zu konzentrieren. Und die picken wir uns im folgenden schonungslos raus!READ MORE

Skincare hack: how to avoid tacky face

Twindlytuesday: Two skincare hacks to avoid sticky skin!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate the feeling of product sitting on my face and that tacky feeling that comes with it. Liquid foundation that never settles? Urgh. Face oils that never properly sinks in? Bah. Can’t stand it. And besides, it’s not just that icky sticky feeling – it also stained bed clothes and a rising level of impatience, while I hop impatiently around and waiting for skincare to sink in so I can apply my makeup in the morning, and nobody has time for that! Enough reasons to tackle the sticky face situation once and for all.READ MORE
