Biotherm Face Protection

I’ve also tried Biotherm Sun Protection. It’s a nice lotion and more moisturizing than the Elta. I use it on the days that my skin feels a little drier and I’m not wearing much makeup.

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster

Oh my goodness, even more than other Dermalogica products, I love the Skin Hydrating Booster. It is by far my fav Dermalogica product.

(Un)Remarkable

A few months ago, there was a huge craze on Makeup Alley about CeraVe moisturizer. It was said to cure almost every skin illness, and I had quite a few readers email me asking if and when it would be available in Canada. They really wanted to try it. I ended up emailing CeraVe and […]

Don’t Buy

I hated the N.V. Perricone M.D. Body Toning Lotion. Not only is it uneffective, but it smells bad, has the consistency of spoiled milk, and its active ingredient, DMAE, has actually been shown to do damage to skin over a prolongued period of time. I tried this for a week and then tossed the rest. […]
