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 […]

Vichy LiftActiv UV

Day creams need to have SPF – it really kills 2 birds with 1 stone because you can moisturize and protect your skin without too much trouble.  I mean, do we really want to moisturize and then add more product on top with sunscreen? That’s why I love Vichy’s LiftActiv UV moisturizer – it has […]

Kiehl’s Product Reviews

I must admit that I’m going through an @KiehlsCanada  phase right now. I’m smitten with a few of their products and I can’t get enough of the brand – and If you’re unfamiliar with this line, know that it was a New York pharmacy started in 1851. (The brand is now owned by L’Oreal Paris). Their […]

I’ve been a longtime fan of @clinique for my skin, and one of the products that I love is their Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector, which isn’t exactly for making my pores smaller, but more for making them look invisible.

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 […]

Fresh Sugar Face Polish

First off: this really is a polish rather than a scrub. The sugar granules in this are so fine that I found they had all melted away about 30 seconds into scrubbing. Fresh says that you can use this as a mask and leave it on your face for a little while and then scrub […]

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 […]
