    Dermaquest C Infusion Serum

    There are so many skincare launches; I’m struggling to keep up with my testing. I’ve been very slack on posting, too, so expect a deluge of skincare reviews this month from the products I’ve been testing for the last few months (I haven’t been testing them ALL at the same time.) The first of which is a fabulous Vitamin C serum from Dermaquest. For the last few years, skincare has been all about acids and retinol, and now Vitamin C is having its moment to shine. Hurrah for that – I love Vitamin C and have been using it on my skin for years (Environ C-Boost was my go-to for…

    Afari Skincare is here

    I can honestly say I’ve never been so excited about a brand launch in the 15 years I’ve been writing about products.

    I mentioned in my last post that because my skin has been so good, I’ve been passing on foundation most days. When I do want to even out my skin a bit, I’ve been reaching for the new CHANEL Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint. I’ve seen a few people online getting upset about the coverage because it’s been incorrectly called a foundation – it isn’t a foundation, it’s a tint, as it clearly states in the name. If you are looking for coverage, rather than glow and an even complexion, then look for something like the CHANEL Ultra Le Teint. This innovative formula is made up of 75% water and is…

    Lamelle Acnevelle

    My skin and I have a complicated relationship. Yes, I abuse it by testing too many products, but to be fair, it was pretty badly behaved before I started doing that anyway.
