New Vichy Neovadiol Rose Platinum Cream

Vichy’s Neovadiol line is created for women who are menopausal or post-menopausal, because that demographic can have more dry skin and the Neovadiol line is more moisturizing. That said, you don’t have to be menopausal or post-menopausal to enjoy the beautiful scent of the new Neovadiol Rose Platinum cream.  If you believe in self-care, and […]

Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier

Anyone else have a lovely collection of bottles with droppers in their skincare collection.  Usually these are some of my favourite products in my skincare routine because they actually work.  My latest addition is the Skinceuticals’ H.A. Intensifier. As we age, our skin starts to have less and less Hyaluronic Acid in it which can […]

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 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 […]

Glowing Skin with Laneige

It’s winter time, and I’m layering on the retinols and acids, so my skin is dry and needs extra hydration.  Even my kids, who normally have perfect skin, are feeling the dryness. For my face, I’m using Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask ($32) which is filled with hyaluronic acid.  This Sleeping Mask is gel-like and watery […]

Neutrogena Hydro Boost

When the weather gets colder, it’s important to switch to something that’s going to be more hydrating and comforting on the skin.  That’s when I start adding in the Neutrogena Hydro Boost line into my skincare routine. In the centre below is the new exfoliating cleanser.  It’s hydrating but with little beads in it so […]

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 […]

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. Now Vichy has new Mineral 89 Moisturizer that has only 11 ingredients which hopefully means that there’s just active ingredients and […]
