In May, I went to a fancy skincare clinic for a story and immediately started talking brands with the clinician who was seeing me. her one piece of advice: stick with your retinol. I had decided to give my skin a break from it, and she said that was completely unnecessary. So I’m back on […]
A few weeks ago, I posted about The Inkey List on IGTV. The Inkey List is a brand from England that’s now available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart. They are ingredient-focussed and so they make products that really work! I’ve been test-driving some of them and I’ll post reviews soon, but first if you […]
Hi Friends! I made a little video about peels, and if you’re extra interested in skincare you might want to check it out. Peels are great for reducing acne, clearing up acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, and even fine lines. At home peels are relatively gentle, as long as you follow instructions and monitor your skin.

In 2018, @Glossier was definitely the brand people asked me about the most. I bought some things from the brand – watch my video review! I know that I just posted a review of the Glossier Solution but here’s a video of that and the Perfecting Skin Tint. Check it out! I got the Glossier […]
What do you think and what can you spot?
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 […]
Somewhere on the interwebs (reddit? maybe?) I came across the mention of A313, a retinol available in France that one could get on Amazon. What made it unique was the pomade texture, something I hadn’t come across before and what I thought would be luxe and hydrating. It’s actually a rename of the former Avibon, […]
I really wish I had taken a picture of the empty jar, but I just forgot. I know, I’ve reviewed a whole bunch of face creams lately. There was the Sothy’s Noctuelle which has vitamin C in it and is meant to be used at night time. This was really the most lusciously moisturizing cream […]
I know that paper masks are not new, but now you don’t have to buy a whole package of paper masks of the same type. You can just get the masks that you want to try out and then invest in a full package when you’re sure that the mask is for you. This has […]
A couple of months ago, I made a video about Universkin customized skin serums. Each serum is mixed on the spot for your own skin concerns and because it’s bespoke, the ingredients are tailored to what your skin needs. Because the serums are made fresh and without any preservatives, each one is made to last […]
