Clinique Turnaround Concentrate

A leave-on exfoliator I swear by!

I began using Clinique Turnaround Concentrate around 5 years ago and since then I’m in love with this product. Although from time to time I take a break and try serums by other brands, I never get the same great results as I get with Clinique Turnaround Concentrate. To me, it’s simply the best, as it does make the difference to my skin and I do not even need to wait for long to … Read more

Posted on: March 12th, 2015 by Olena No Comments


Blemish Spot Treatment is supposed to be used as soon as you feel that a blemish is developing and applied on an affected area 1 to 3 times daily.

Vita Mineral Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil by REN

Omega 3 by REN

The reason I bought Omega 3 oil by REN was to repair the lipid barrier, to restore moisture level and to reduce sensitivity of my skin after I’d had a bad experience with AHA exfoliation.

In a couple of days the moisture level of my skin was significantly improved. The skin looked more hydrated, the dry patches became less visible. In spite, my skin was not restored by 100%, the difference was still noticeable. The oil by REN managed to … Read more
