DDF Discoloration Reversal Moisturizer

DDF Discoloration Reversal MoisturizerLate last year, my friends started to remark about how fabulous my skin looked. I quickly dismissed the first few compliments, thinking my pals were just being kind. But the flattery just kept coming and I started to wonder what all the fuss was about. Then one morning, I looked in the mirror and finally saw what everyone else was seeing. The dark marks around my jawline that have plagued me for years were almost gone – and my complexion was positively radiant. That’s when it all clicked…and my new moisturizer instantly achieved holy grail status.

DDF Discoloration Reversal Moisturizer promises to “effectively hydrate skin during the nighttime sleep cycle to help reduce the appearance of melanin build up, and help to achieve younger looking skin.” And boy does it ever. I’ve struggled with hyperpigmentation since puberty and have tested a ridiculous amount of products to minimize my the dark marks that acne and other blemishes have left in their wake. I’ve had good results with a handful of those products, but nothing comes close to the transformation I’ve witnessed with DDF Discoloration Reversal Moisturizer.

Not only did it practically obliterate my dark marks, it evened out my entire skin tone and imparted a glow that – up until now – I’ve only been able to achieve with makeup. What a welcome surprise! And the funny thing is that even though you’re supposed to use it twice a day, I only use it in the morning (I didn’t read the directions when DDF first sent me a bottle to review) and my friends noticed an improvement in my skin after just two weeks of using the product. Just imagine how quick you could see results if you actually use as directed! (more…)

St. Ives Apricot Scrub Gets Much Love From Me

st. ives apricot scrub

I can’t believe how late I am to the St. Ives Apricot Scrub partay.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub is a perennial award winner (it’s like the Meryl Streep of the skin care world) and beauty gurus rave about it. I recently tried it for the first time and after I marveled at my baby butt smooth face, I immediately started kicking myself for waiting so long to give it a try.

The scrub exfoliates dull skin away for a smooth and radiant look. The 100 percent natural exfoliants (which include apricots and walnuts) are known to brighten skin; corn kernel meal, which is known to improve skin’s appearance, increases cell turnover. The classic scrub was also newly formulated to be 100 percent sulfate-free.

And now it comes in four formulas, so you can choose the one that meets your skin’s unique needs. (more…)

2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge: Second Report

This past Spring, I embarked on the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge. To kick off this partnership, I had a consultation with Dr. Deborah Sarnoff, a NYC dermatologist. After discussing my skin issues, she recommended the following Eucerin products for me:

After using the products for four months, I had a follow-up consultation with Dr. Sarnoff. Watch the video for a recap of my evaluation and the progress I’ve made, as well as some great tips Dr. Sarnoff gave me for the coming months.
