I’m so smitten with the latest launch from In Fiore; their Vis Clair Supreme eye cream. It’s decadent, yet light. Absorbs quickly, yet feels nourishing all day long. Wears well under makeup. Does not migrate into the eye; one of my biggest complaints about most eye creams. And has improved one of my biggest complaints about my eye area – my dark under eye circles. Read on for the full review and the surprising ingredients they use to tackle dark circles in a completely new way. Product: In Fiore Vis Clair Supreme Firming Eye Complex Best for: Dark circles, puffiness, fine lines…

The new Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Night Cream is shockingly GOOD. After taking a months long hiatus from moisturizer, I decided to reenter the world of lotions and creams with this one by Caudalie and I’m so happy I did.

This morning my husband even looked at me and said – which he never says – “You are so beautiful, and your skin looks so pretty this morning.” I stared back at him in disbelief and said, “Is…

My skincare routine involves an exfoliating cleanser with glycolic acid (gasp! – never thought I’d be able to use this during the height of my perioral dermatitis outbreak days) and a serum, which I rotate among a few different kinds nightly. That’s it, and my skin is looking good – real good. If you’ve read my blog posts on my personal dermatitis struggles, you’re probably shocked that (a) I’m not using moisturizer, (b) I’m using strong acids and (c) all it takes to keep my skin looking good is one serum at night.…

Looking back on this past year, I can say 2018 has been one of my favorites: my acne flare ups became a distant memory (thus why the category has been removed this year); pregnancy and the birth of Chloe showed me the joys of motherhood – and the need for clean, efficacious and safe baby products; and while dry/dehydrated skin and perioral dermatitis persisted, I found a rhythm of gentle skincare products to help with both giving me my best skin to-date! Typically, I reserve this best-of list for year end, but it always seems to hit at an inopportune time after…
