I don’t know about you, but I always like to try out new and exciting beauty things, especially when it comes to prolonging the youth of my skin. So, when I was asked to review a Derma Roller System** I immediately said yes. But why do I want to try a derma roller and what even is a derma roller?*
What is a Derma Roller System?
The derma roller, which is basically a microneedle roller, has the ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin. Both, collagen and elastin, help to promote healthier skin cells in the body. The derma roller can help to treat problems such as wrinkles, skin hyperpigmentation, scars (including acne scars – which is amazing if you ask an acne scar-girl), uneven skin, stretch marks and hair loss.

What needle size did I choose?
Over the next couple of weeks I will try out my Derma Roller System and will give you back a full review on it.* I decided to pick the 1.0 mm needle, because it check off most of the problems I want to tackle. To find out which of the needle sizes is the best choice for you, you can check out their chart: Needle Size Guide – Derma Roller System
As soon as I tried it, I will write a review about it and will go into depth on how to use it and how it works*. If you are interested in trying it yourself, check out their guide: How the Derma Roller Works
in today’s blog post I am going to show you some cute accessories that are perfect for family and friends who love to accessorize. They are from various prices, but they are all super cute.
An accessory can make or break an outfit and adds a little touch of personality to each individual outfit. They can be personalized and used for special occasions only. Check out these cute items I have found:
Those deep red leather boots are GORGEOUS! I love this color so much! What are some of your favorite accessories that you have been gifted? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know.
I have created other gift guides, check them out here:
in today’s entry I am going to show you some of my favorite makeup items as well as some of my own wishlist items for gifts. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and makeup is one of my biggest hobbies, so I thought I bring to you this gift guide!
I’ve divided the items into three categories – face, eyes and lips. I’ve picked some of my all time favorites, as well as some items that I want myself and heard great things about. I also included high end things and more affordable brands. So you can find something for everyone!
I like to apply a sticky primer that will allow the foundation to better adhere to the skin than anything else. For that I use The Ordinary – High Adherence Silicone Primer. Let me tell you, this stuff is cheap and AMAZING! I switched to it around two months ago and it changed the game on a whole other level. I just really love The Ordinary products, so if you haven’t checked their stuff out already definitely do so.
Next I use a lightweight foundation that has almost the same effect as a CC Cream. Truth be told, I only like wearing lightweight foundations these days, because I feel like heavier foundations just clock up my pores and also do not last as long. My current obsession is The Ordinary – Serum Foundation that stuff is pure gold and under eight bucks.
If I need extra coverage for pimples or for under my eyes I like to use the L’Oréal Paris – Infaillible Concealer. It’s high coverage but does not clog up the pores to much, but to be fair, I do not need my makeup to be perfect for everyday College life which basically means I usually step this step.
Next I like to set my entire face with loose setting powder. As of my birthday I am using the Laura Mercier – Translucent Setting Powder and I absolutely love it! It’s super fine and feels lightweight on the skin.
Last but not least I like to set my entire face of makeup with a glowy setting spray. The one that I am using is the NYX – Glowy Finish Setting Spray. It is the final touch to my makeup and it absolutely makes a difference when I use it.
Above you can see a full face with all the products I’ve mentioned as well as obviously some eye makeup, blusher, bronzer and highlighter. I just love how my skin looks with all the products. It’s perfect for Winter!
What are some of your favorite makeup products that you love to use during Winter? Tell me in the comments, I would love to know.
Since I can remember I am struggling with skin issues. But this year my skin has become much more radiant, healthier and I also have a lot less acne or active breakouts. Even my acne scars are starting to heal a little bit. If you want to know how I cleared my skin, keep on reading, because I am about to tell you.
Firstly, I introduced a healthier diet into my life. I made sure to eat less processed food and also cook more with veggies and don’t eat as much of red meat and sugar. This helped with my skin enormously in the way that it cleared my skin off most of the active breakouts, since they usually appeared because of an unhealthy diet.
Then I make sure to take my makeup off EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, even if I don’t want to and am lazy, I do it. If you leave your makeup on overnight your pores will get clogged and with that breakouts are much more likely to happen especially if you have an acne prone skin, like me.
My skincare routine at night consist of the following steps:
Then take a makeup wipe to wipe the product off and get rid of any excess makeup. I prefer a makeup wipe, because I would have to use a new cloth every single evening, because I found out that even with cleaning the cloth with hot water and soap it still had some product left and that leads to me having breakouts.
Another thing I introduced into my everyday life was days without makeup. I used to wear makeup even when I was just running errands, I now don’t do that anymore. Simply to give my skin a little break and to breathe. I also make sure to get at least seven hours of sleep at night, so that my body and skin has enough time to rejoice itself. Last but not least, I doubled my water intake and take b12-vitamins.
What are some of your tips and tricks of clearing your skin? What has worked for you? I would love to know. I hope that this entry gave you a little insight into my routine and maybe some of my tricks will help you too.
