My Dilemma

I’ve written several posts about the pros and cons of using retinol. I’m still debating on whether to incorporate it into my skincare routine. Vitamin C is also a huge ingredient when it comes to anti-aging. I thought maybe I could find a serum that contains both and see what kind of results I get….

The Proper Way to Layer Your Skincare Products

Most beauty and skincare enthusiasts know the proper order to use when applying skincare. Cleanse (or double cleanse), toner, serum, moisturizer, and SPF.

Hydrating vs. Moisturizing Your Skin

Is there a difference, you may ask? As it turns out, a huge difference. In very simple terms, hydrating your skin means putting water back into it. Moisturizing your skin means you’re putting lipids (essential fats) into your skin. If you think about it, when we are thirsty, our bodies are dehydrated. We drink water…

La Prairie Platinum Serum Dupe

I wrote a post about the benefits of 24K gold on your skin, but what about platinum? La Prairie has come out with Cellular Serum Platinum Rare and many celebrities are using it. Well, you pretty much have to be very wealthy to use this serum. One ounce sells for – get ready – $755! Yikes!…

Benefits of 24K Gold on Skin

$600 La Mer Serum Alternative

Genaissance De Le Mer The Serum Essence is one of those products that are way out of reach for most of us. It costs $630 for 1 oz. of serum! Yikes! So, what exactly is so great about it? Is it pure liquid gold? Nope. As quoted from the website: “This age-transcending serum essence was…
