PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I admit I am here for the play of words in the new Alpha-H Dawn to Dusk SPF 50+ Serum name.

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   When launching their Supersolutions, a product line called “highly specialized and clinically proven skincare for people who have a persistent, stubborn skincare challenge”, they also came out with The Inkey List Scar, Mark and Wrinkle Solution, a 1% Retinol serum.     I find the naming a little confusing – I never know if I should call it Scar, mark and…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   I think Vitamin C products are among the ones I test most frequently, and the latest in that long line is the Skintegra Superba C Serum. Just as a heads up, it is not a serum using L-Ascorbic Acid, the “original” Vitamin C, but a derivative. (More info: The different forms of Vitamin C explained)     As I tolerate Ascorbic…

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   When I tell you The Inkey Lists 10% Urea Moisturizer – Dry and Rough Skin Solution reminds me of a foot cream, but in a good way, that isn’t really going to sell it to you, is it?     It isn’t the texture, just to be clear, the texture is lovely and not similar to the really thick stuff I…

The reformulated The Ordinary 2% Hyaluronic Acid + B5 Serum – improved? | Doctors Review

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: SOME PRODUCTS MENTIONED IN THIS POST ARE PR (GIFTED) AND LINKS USED ARE AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE THE BLOGPOST. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER   If a brand reformulates a crowd favorite, it isn’t always well perceived by their loyal fans. In case of The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Serum  though it led to much applause even before it was out.     I guess the main reason for that was that during their virtual launch event they made it absolutely clear that their…
