What skin care product do you really want to try next? Why?

The next category of products I want to try is a water-soluble vitamin C serum, such as the Skinceuticals CE Ferulic (which I probably won’t just because it’s SO expensive), or various alternatives that Nicki from FutureDerm suggested HERE. Most likely, I’d go with the Timeless dupe since Nicki likes it (in a completely personal way) more than the … Continue reading

Paula’s Choice Skin Softening Cream Recovery Cleanser

Paula’s Choice Skin Softening Cream Recovery Cleanser: ($15.95/$23.95 for 8 oz/16 oz) Positives: This is a gentle water-soluble cleanser that lathers slightly.

Come Out! (With Your Skin Care) Mia Abelhammer!

Introduction: Mia has what appears to be combination skin, which is oily in the T-zone and dry everywhere else. The climate she lives in is humid, which exacerbates the oily areas, while slightly relieving the dry ones. Fortunately, despite the constant humidity and oiliness, Mia only breaks out occasionally with whiteheads. However, she does have to deal … Continue reading

In vitro, it has been demonstrated to enhance the proliferation and collagen expression of fibroblasts as well as upregulate HA production. Furthermore, in vitro studies have shown that NAG inhibits melanin production by upregulating epidermal … Continue reading

When is the price right?

Although I had promised readers that I wouldn’t be writing any new posts until January, a recent discussion compelled me to do an additional post on this: How much does price affect the efficacy and quality of skin care products? With the holiday shopping season upon us, you may be thinking about picking up that expensive cream or … Continue reading
