High Performance Cleanser

Let me just state up front that I have a hard time using a little of anything. As in you only need a little bit because the product is concentrated. LA MER is hitting the scene with another new product and you guessed it – you only need a little.Lamer The Cleansing Foam ($65/4.2oz @ uses sea algae and special white pearl powder to gently cleanse and nourish the skin.

I don’t think I have come across many cleansers that have left my skin really soft like this ones does. They usually leave me feeling tight and stretched. Ugh, I hate this feeling! This formula also contains their unique magnetized tourmaline and Deconstructed Waters to change the property of the water and make it work better with the cleanser. Big recommendation.

My Upset Skin

DermaremedybothMy skin is sure killing me these days because it’s so dry this time of year. I have a humidifier on every night and that won’t visibly help my skin, especially on my legs but C.O. BIGELOW Derma Remedy Intense Dry Skin Therapy Both Lotion ($18/6.7oz) will. This hypoallergenic concoction is for really dry, chapped and overall bummed out skin and claims to provide a moisture barrier for more than 24-hours.

Got eczema or psoriasis? These will really help those conditions too. Part of the trio of products is the
Derma Remedy Intense Dry Skin Therapy Medicated Treatment ($16/2oz), that will treat cracked skin, which thankfully is not quite mine, but it's good to know that it exists. Use either one of these with the Derma Remedy Intense Dry Skin Therapy Body Wash ($16/6.7oz) and really protect and heal your skin. Spring can’t come soon enough! All three @
