Latest Empty: Paula’s Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster

Retinols can really help your skin exfoliate more quickly and I’ve noticed enough of a difference that I keep using them.  Lately, I’ve been into the Paula’s Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster.  1% is quite a high percentage of retinol, so this was a bit drying and extreme when I first tried it, but after […]

Paula’s Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster

I’m love skincare products with active ingredients, and over the past year I’ve become a huge fan of Retinol, especially in a 1% or higher concentration.  Yes, I had lots of peeling and dry skin at first, but I’ve now gotten to the point that I can use it every day and if I notice […]

Neutrogena Dermatologics Retinol NX SPF 35 Daily Moisturizer Review

This year, Neutrogena introduced a new line called Dermatologics to their already stellar product lineup.  The Dermatologics products have retinol in them but unlike most retinol products, they claim that this is in a stabilized form so that it doesn’t irritate the skin as much as most retinol products can. For the record, I have […]

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Line

I’ve used Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair line for years, because when my skin is dry, this is a nice option that moisturizes but doesn’t feel heavy and greasy.  These are some of the few moisturizers that don’t make me break out, and I can use them alongside of my regular actives such as my Neostrata […]

8 Products I Loved in 2017

I love the New Year.  I don’t think so much about what I “accomplished” but more about the memories I made.  More than anything else, my goal last year and this year was to put 100% into home life and most of that doesn’t get documented on social media.  Instead, like a dinner you spend […]

Beautycounter’s New Lotion

Beautycounter has oils that I rave about – even though I have oily skin, they work so well for me.  I’ve written about them here and here just for starters.  Now they have a Countermatch line that’s just for skin that doesn’t need oil all the time.  That means that it’s great for everyday because it’s […]

What I’m Using Right Now

Skincare update! These are my favs right now and they’re making my skin more clear and more glowy than it was before. I’ve had a few breakouts so I’ve been using the @neutrogenacanada anti-acne mask everyday and it’s been working. The mask can be a bit drying, so I only use it at nighttime, and […]

The Lancer Method Anti-Aging Regimen Review

What do I say about an anti-aging regimen that doesn’t have any Vitamin C, acids, or retinol? Basically, the way to start fixing any skin concern is to develop a consistent routine.  Cleansing every morning and night is a must for every skincare routine, and adding a scrub into the mix can greatly enhance the […]

Glowing Skin with Laneige

It’s winter time, and I’m layering on the retinols and acids, so my skin is dry and needs extra hydration.  Even my kids, who normally have perfect skin, are feeling the dryness. For my face, I’m using Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask ($32) which is filled with hyaluronic acid.  This Sleeping Mask is gel-like and watery […]

Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Oil Brightens Your Skin

I recommend some kind of oil to almost everyone I meet. Ok, maybe it’s because I live in a very dry climate and meet a lot of people with topical dryness, and maybe it’s because my friends are of “an age” when they’re starting to add retinol to their skincare regimen, but people ask me […]
