Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum is, according to its website, “…independently proven to restore the skin’s structure, repairing damage caused by sun exposure. After 6 months, the skin is shown to rebuild and overtime elasticity is improved and deep wrinkles are visibly reduced.”
BareMinerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser ($26 for 2.5 ounces at Macy’s) is actually a container of dry sand-like grains that you mix with water in your hand to use. It’s designed to be gentle enough for use twice a day – it really is a cleaner that exfoliates instead of the other way around.
I have some redness on my face (from a disorder called keratosis pilaris), and nothing dermatologists have ever done for me helped much. Recently I tried BareMineral’s Redness Remedy, which is a really unusual product – a powder you pat on affected areas with a provided brush.
