AlumierMD Launches HydraClarite

Alumier means “to brighten” and one great way to brighten skin is to make sure that it’s hydrated.  Oily and acne-prone skin types often have trouble with this because heavy moisturizers can cause more breakouts, but treatments for acne-prone skin can dry skin out.  To help with that, AlumierMD has launched a new moisturizer called […]

L’Oreal Paris Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer

At first glance, it doesn’t really seem appealing to rub a rosy-tinted moisturizer all over your face, even if you are into colour correction, but my skin needs a moisturizer so I thought I would give this a shot. The upside is that the rosy tint didn’t really show up on my tan skin – […]

New Vichy Mineral 89

The latest moisturizers promise to be light and refreshing but still help get rid of dry skin, thanks to the addition of hyaluronic acid which can pack more than its own weight in moisture.

Nivea 2-in-1 Moisturizing Primer

For the last little while, Nivea Men’s Aftershave has been a cult product that women have used as primer for their foundation.  Apparently, it absorbed easily and left skin matte and ready for foundation.  Because it was made for men, it was moisturizing but with a finish that was impossible to see in the mirror. Now, […]

My All-Time Favourite Daytime Moisturizer

I didn’t used to use moisturizer in the day, but when I started using sunscreen everyday, I would find that the sunscreen would actually be a little bit drying on my skin, so I’ve since switched to a moisturizer that contains sunscreen.  My favourite one is Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost gel cream with SPF 15. This […]

Reviews of a Couple Beautycounter Face Products

As the weather gets cooler, a lot cooler, I’ve turned to more heavy-duty moisturizers to keep my skin feeling and looking its best.  I’m trying out the Beautycounter Soothing Face Oil ($78) and the Beautycounter Nourishing Day Cream ($52).  Both are proposed to be gentler and safer on the skin because they don’t contain mineral oils, […]
