Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier

Lise Watier La Creme Sublime Yeux – Pressed Serum with Labrador Tea Extract

Pressed serums are a term that’s relatively new to the beauty industry in North America, but they’re actually quite popular in Korean beauty rituals.  The idea behind a pressed serum is that they take the active ingredients of a serum but put them into a cream formula and concentrate them a bit more.  The cream […]

Beautycounter’s Vitamin C Oil Brightens Your Skin

I recommend some kind of oil to almost everyone I meet. Ok, maybe it’s because I live in a very dry climate and meet a lot of people with topical dryness, and maybe it’s because my friends are of “an age” when they’re starting to add retinol to their skincare regimen, but people ask me […]
