Put your best skin forward this holiday season! You want to look your best  and with years of damage from tanning, acne, natural discoloration, and stretch marks, your daily regimen just doesn’t cut it. We’ve tested loads of products for you, for specific issues, and bring you the ones that truly delivered.



Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream

Whether you call them battle scars, tiger stripes, zebra prints, badges of honor, worm tattoos, or road maps, stretch marks can be a huge insecurity factor as most women from a size 00 to size 22 have them. Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream helped reduce the appearance of year’s damage, improved my skins smoothness, but also protects against future marks.


Bel Mondo Beauty 100 Bio Cellulose: Anti-Aging

We don’t typically outsource people to try products, but as Anti-Aging is more for my mum than for me, I needed her honest opinion. She’s been receiving the highest end of regenerating treatment for years and admitted, Bel Mondo Masks did the job equivalent to high end spas at a fraction of the price.  Though she admitted to enjoying being fawned over in the salon, it’s a great alternative when you don’t have time.


Kinara Red Carpet Facial Peel and OLEHENRIKSEN Power Peel

There was tie between the facial peels as I swear by Omorovicza’s Copper Peel, our Beauty Editor gushes over OLEHENRIKSEN Power Peel and our intern is all about Kinara Red Carpet Facial Peel (as are tons of celebrities). One thing we all agreed upon was that the slight tingle ensured us it was working, plus the immediate difference gave a glow for days.


LaFace Cellular Regeneration Cream

Now, do understand we’ve just literally recently started using this product so the even skin tone, reducing fine lines and wrinkles claim isn’t something we can vouch for, YET! It’s smooth, non-sticky, non-watery texture did allow for all day moisture, plus helped with plumping the skins firmness from sleepless weeks preparing for the holiday.


Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Remover

For dark spots caused by acne, age spots and sun damage, Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Remover is a one product regimen that improved the appearance of our dark leaving us with the feeling of a new layer of skin.


REN Clean Skincare: Micro Polish Cleanser, Radiance Perfecting Serum and Resurfacing AHA Concentrate

But if you’re comfortable with a few products daily, REN Clean Skincare uses a two to three step program, twice a day, for their 7Day Optimum Radiance Program. Pores were significantly minimized, oil secretion significantly subsided, plus our faces are brighter and dark spots have cleared up.
