Glow by Dr. Brandt Ruby Laser Technology Kit

Dermatologist-developed products, for the most part, scare me. I want to maintain my healthy complexion and prevent possible future damage without resorting to anything overly potent that might leave me red in the face — or god knows what else. I have an aversion towards dermatologist that hawk their own product lines (I once went […]

DDF Skincare Analysis: Technology is Skin-Deep

I had an in-depth skin analysis from DDF (Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula) at Sephora during Fashion Week. Consultants from the skincare line were doing a free cross-country tour throughout February, and I’m so happy I made it in. I have to thank Roy, the lovely skincare expert who helped me discover I’ve been treating my skin […]

Murad Resurgence Anti-Aging Line: To Hell With Changing Hormones!

As we age, our hormones inevitably change, and these changes have many effects on our bodies. Since our skin is the largest organ, it shows the most amount of unwelcomed changes. Murad has created a line specifically for hormonal aging. Whether it’s wrinkles, dark spots, lack of luster, or even hormone-induced acne, this comprehensive line […]

Philosophy’s New Oxygen Boost

I’ve never used Philosophy’s Oxygen Peel (I’m not big on peels…), but it always gets rave reviews so I was curious to try Philosophy’s new Oxygen Boost ($50). The boost sounds more or less like a brightening serum so I figured that it could possibly make my treatment creams, which are all anti-aging moisturizers at […]

COOLA Launches First Non-SPF Skincare Range

COOLA’s Sport range is one of my go-to SPF lines. It goes on sheer, is non-chalky, and most importantly it’s hypoallergenic and doesn’t clog my pores (I’m so pale and fearful of burns that when it’s hot out I’m a machine when it comes to sunscreen application!). The eco-conscious brand’s products are all packed with […]

Ole Henriksen Three Little Wonders

There are so many holiday gift sets that are offered at bargain prices this time of year and it’s easy to get lured in by their prices and end up with a kit that’s just got a bunch of filler/throw-away products, which is why I love Ole Henriksen’s Three Little Wonders ($70 – $101 value). […]

AmorePacifc Moisture Bound Oil-Free Essentials Clarifying Skincare Regimen

I know it’s far from being a new brand, but AmorePacific is a new personal favorite. I’ve used a few of their products over the past year including an eye cream, nighttime moisturizer, and now I’ve been using the Refreshing Hydra-Gel, which is one of five products in the brand’s limited edition Moisture Bound Oil-Free […]

Superfoods for your Face: Dr Perricone Wrinkle Protection Kit

Come the holidays many of us fall off the bandwagon when it comes to eating healthfully, so why not make-up for the lack of steamed veggies and fresh fruits in our diet by indulging in superfood-based skincare? Hey, it can’t hurt, right!? Dr. Nicholas Perricone encourages beauty from the inside out and from the outside […]

Actifirm: How Important is the Outer Layer?

I’m very often drawn to out-of-the-box packaging. In fact if it wasn’t for fantastic outer layers, I probably wouldn’t own 75% of what’s in my beauty arsenal and I’d be a brand loyalist as soon as I discover an effective product. For obvious sensitive skin-related concerns I’m definitely way more adventurous when it comes to […]
