Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. Make sure to check back every Friday for a new style tip. Our goal is to help you go from, I have nothing to wear to having a closet packed with items you love that fit and flatter.

Most of us will agree that Vitamin A is a miracle ingredient. I mean, if you have a skin concern, chances are Vitamin A will fix it.

Dark spots – Check.

Lines – Check.

Wrinkles – Check.

Loss of firmness – Check.

Dull or rough texture – Check.

All the other carnage our fun-living 20’s left behind – Check.

The Search Is On:

I’ve tried a ton of them – both prescription and over the counter –  yet, never fallen in love, because while I want all the fantastic benefits, the side effects are killer. And when I say side effects, we’re talking my face turning into the human version of a molting snake. I don’t think I’m alone in that, and since we can’t hide out in the basement until the painful process of peeling, redness, and itching passes, that’s a problem.

But then about a month ago, I received a sample of the Peter Thomas Roth Pro-Strength Retinoid Peptide Serum, and hope surged anew.

The sample lasted about a week, and while there was some mild peeling and a smidge of itching, I woke up to the smoothest softest skin I can remember. (I’ve since purchased the full-size bottle and at $110, it’s a bit of an investment. But if you sign up for Sephora’s emails, they’ll let you know about their next VIB Sale which will save some $$$.)

Now, I’m not a doctor or a chemist, nor do I play one on Netflix. However, if I had to guess why this Serum works so well while not ravaging your skin, I’d say it’s the oil base. (PTR’s website says it’s a Squalane and Ceramide NP base, but I’m lazy, and it feels slippery, so we’re going with oil.)

The oil is key for two reasons:

The first, because Retinol dries skin out something fierce, and the oil helps dial back the usual annoying scaly-ness.

And second, because it glides on so easily, you’ll be less likely to overdose your skin, a common cause of adverse reactions. (See the snake-like reference above.)

A couple other thoughts:

I don’t want my oily skin besties out there to be nervous. This Serum absorbs so fast, you’ll likely never even feel it on your skin.

Number two, I tossed around the ‘sensitive’ word earlier, which if you’re anything like me, you’ll equate to ‘not working’ and ‘no visible results’. But besides for my testimonial, the PTR website promises a 60% reduction in lines and wrinkles in 14 days. And you know that’s legit since it’s on the internet.

I’m excited because the less we look like Flesh Peeling Zombies, the more likely we are to keep using it. Then one day, as if by time machine, we’ll end up looking like a younger version of ourselves.

And just in time for all those holiday pictures.

Win – win – win – win – win – win – win.
