Differin Gel Review

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 […]

What I’m Using Right Now

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 […]

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 […]
