If you’d ask me what step of my skincare routine is the one that’s most important to me I’d say it’s cleansing. Without even thinking. As this first part is so essential you therefore need to do it properly, otherwise the following routine is absolutely pointless. Even if I try many different cleansers I still come back to my favorites eventually. Clinique is one of the first skincare brands I have ever tried and their products still have a special worth for me since they never disappointed…

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a feature naturally occurring in the human body, found in almost every cell and it is the main molecule of the extracellular matrix of the skin. In the 70’s Hyaluronic Acid was discovered for the very first time. Only one molecule alone is able to hold up a 1000-fold of its own weight in water and that is the reason why HA is a major skin plumper. As we age, starting in our mid-twenties, the natural production of HA in ours bodies decreases. The NIOD…

This post is for all the dry-skinned girls out there. My skin is far away from being dry now but before I slipped into my hormonal acne issues I used to have quite dry skin. That explains why I still have lots and lots of products for that concern in my skincare drawer. Uhh, I have to tell you that I really miss using a creamy moisturizer, I miss the comforting and pampering feeling a heavy cream leaves on the skin 🙂 Thinking back I…

I’m sure a bad buy doesn’t only happen to me. The internet is packed with reviews and advices, sometimes we are just overflowed by information. Of course I am well aware of the fact that products which work for others might be a total disaster for me, my needs or skin condition and this also applies vice versa. I still wanted to write this post down and tell you about my disappointing experience with some previous purchases. Clarins UV Plus SPF50 I am really sorry to…

I must confess that I am a huge sucker for berry lipsticks, balms, tints… Well, basically everything berry coloured that you can slather on your lips. It’s hardly surprising that I felt the urgent need of getting my hands on the new Benefit They’re Real! Double The Lip lipstick and lipliner in one which creates a gorgeous ombré effect on the lips. Yes, it kills two birds with one stone and makes an application easy-peasy. Let’s take a closer look at it. There we go. It…

The all natural brand Indie Lee was called into life in 2009 after its founder Indie recovered from a life-threatening brain tumor. She had a great thought behind creating her skin care line: “We all need to go back to basics”. At the beginning of this year I drastically started to change my eating habits and cut out all animal products of my diet. The main reason why I wanted to create a change was basically my food intolerance and skin situation. I am lactose intolerant for…

Each and every time I scroll through my Instagram feed I get the feeling that the good old days of natural and barefaced days are gone and everyone’s make up needs to be desperately #onfleek. Everybody wants to look flawless, myself included, but I don’t believe in the thought that makeup is the only remedy to achieve an impeccable appearance. I am an advocate of the thought that great skin starts at the root: your bare skin. You can cover every single spot, every scar…
