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.

Reversa Resurfacing Smoothing Cream

I’ve been on and off the retinol bandwagon, and either I’ve gotten to the point where I’m just not noticing a difference anymore, or I need something a bit stronger.  So I pulled out my Reversa Resurfacing Smoothing Cream because it has 10% glycolic acid in it and glycolic acid has always been a hero […]

Lise Watier La Creme Sublime Yeux – Pressed Serum with Labrador Tea Extract

Pressed serums are a term that’s relatively new to the beauty industry in North America, but they’re actually quite popular in Korean beauty rituals.  The idea behind a pressed serum is that they take the active ingredients of a serum but put them into a cream formula and concentrate them a bit more.  The cream […]

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 […]
