Best Facial Sunscreens On The Market

Best Facial Sunscreens Based on Texture, Spreadability, and Price I never leave the house without putting on sunscreen. My face must always be protected from the sun by a nice layer of sunscreen. That’s one beauty habit that I vow never to break. But choosing the right face sunscreen can be tricky. There are a lot of options available, but the formulations, ingredients, and product claims can be confusing. Many people don’t like to wear sunscreen because of the smell and the feeling on the skin. These product picks are sure to please even the pickiest person. They don’t smell […]

5 Awesome New Skin Care Products

My Favorite New Skin Care Products I recently attended the Orlando Dermatology Aesthetic and Clinical conference back in January. I’ve attended this conference in the past and always find it enjoyable, educational, and absolutely loaded with goodies in the exhibit hall. This year was no different; I went home with quite a few bags of dermatology swag. Some of the products I came home with are tried and true favorites. Some of the products are new additions that I had never tried or heard of. I got creams, lotions, serums, sunscreens, and nutritional supplements galore. Luckily, you have me to […]

Hydropeptide Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel: Product Review

How I Found Hydropeptide Recently I went to a dermatology conference in New York. Like most conferences, there was a large exhibitor hall where different companies had booths set up to market their products to the dermatologists, physician assistants, and medical students (i.e. me) that were in attendance. They typically give away full size sunscreens, lotions, peels; you name it. If it’s a dermatologic product that’s sold in a dermatologist’s office, they had a booth at the conference. Of course I made my rounds so I could take home a year’s lifetime supply of sunscreens and various anti-wrinkle creams. The […]

No-Ad Sunscreen: Product Review

No-Ad Sunscreen Is My Favorite Body Sunscreen My go to brand for body sunscreen is No-Ad. No-Ad sunscreen was started in 1962 with the mission of providing twice as much sunscreen as the national competitor brands for the same price. You can probably see why I love this brand so much already. I’m on a broke medical student budget where the thought of spending more money than I absolutely have to on anything leaves me filled with dread. Loan money only goes so far. However, I’m not willing to go out in the sun unprotected.  The sun’s rays are menacing and out […]
