Brand Review | Dr. Barbara Sturm (Face Cream, Face Cream Rich, Clarifying Mask, Enzyme Cleanser, Glow Drops)

Brand Review | Dr. Barbara Sturm (Face Cream, Face Cream Rich, Clarifying Mask, Enzyme Cleanser, Glow Drops)

After La Mer, La Prairie, and other nicely smelling and heavily user-experience focused brands, there is a new type of luxury skincare in town: the one created by doctors. But the question remains: are they more effective? Scientific? Justified in being more expensive?… and are they made by doctors at all?

Skincare Empties – Tried, Tested… But Trusted? #2

Skincare Empties – Tried, Tested… But Trusted? #2

I’m very overdue with my empties. I need to take out the trash though, I’m in the middle of moving, and if I bring empty plastic bottles into the new apartment that’ll be the last nail in my hoarder coffin. It’s getting comfy in there. Seriously, it’s scary.

SkinCeuticals review: Clariflying Clay Masque, Gentle Cleanser and C E Ferulic Serum

SkinCeuticals review: Clariflying Clay Masque, Gentle Cleanser and C E Ferulic Serum

SkinCeuticals is a brand that markets itself as “advanced skincare backed by science”. They divide their range in three major categories: Prevent, Protect and Correct. They’re a very clinical, no fluff no fuss brand, that doesn’t claim miracles and takes packaging into consideration to best preserve the active ingredients of their line – in this sense it reminds me of The Ordinary. In the price sense, it doesn’t. They ain’t cheap.
