For those times when you’ve completely overdone it and your skin needs some TLC, there are oils that you should have on hand and lately I’ve been trying The Ordinary 100% Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil. It is $9.90 (just a little more than your fancy coffee) which makes it an affordable choice as something […]
The Ordinary is known for their affordable skincare products, but they hadn’t launched a cleanser, which is weird, because a crucial aspect of taking care of your skin is cleaning it thoroughly every night. Their Squalane oil is so well known and I love their retinol in squalane, so I was all over this new […]
I wrote about my The Ordinary Haul, and the first product that I opened right away was the 1% Retinol in Squalene. Squalene is a plant-based oil that’s often found in skincare. It’s light and feels comfortable on the skin. I’ve used retinol before and I know that it can make your skin feel a […]
I love test-driving products from @deciem. They don’t break the bank, but you have to order them online. Right now, I’ve been test-driving this @deciem The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension on my nights off from Retinol. It was super grainy and dry feeling but that was just the first use. After that, it’s been smooth […]
Here it is. My tiny little The Ordinary haul ordered directly from the Deciem website. I got the 7% Toning Solution, the Retinol 1% in Squalene, the 23% Vitamin C Suspension with HA, Niacinamide 10% and the Serum Foundation and the Coverage Foundation in 2.1Y. First things first, the foundation was tested for initial texture […]
This Retinoid Serum costs just $9.80. If you’ve always been interested in top-of-the-line skincare, but wary of the price point, then you need to check out The Ordinary skincare company. They have key ingredients formulated at a strength that’s really going to make a difference in your skin, and all without the crazy price tag […]
Check it out: some of my spring favourites! Stuff I liked: CeraVe SA Collection Avene Sunscreen Stila Eyeliner Nars Night Series Eyeliner CoverFX Pressed Mineral Foundation The Ordinary serums.
Vitamin C is one of my favourite skincare ingredients because it’s proven to brighten skin and really is an antioxidant which means that it protects skin from environmental aging. Previously, a great Vitamin C serum or cream would cost tons of money and would probably be something that you could get at the doctor’s office […]
Differin is a retinoid product that in Canada is only available with a prescription, but in the US, a low concentration of it is available over-the-counter. So guess what I did when I was in San Francisco over the Christmas break? I went to the local CVS and found it, right next to Neutrogena and […]
Time for a quick update of my morning routine. I’ve been doing this since I went on vacation this past Christmas, and it worked so well – it was so quick and easy – that I’m still doing it even though I’m at home. The routine is this: wash face as usual. Then use The […]
