Mother’s Day Skin Care Product Picks

Here are some of my favorite products.  Speaking as a mom myself, I think mothers are always happy to get some nice, higher quality skin care products for Mother’s Day.  I have not included any drugstore products here, some of which are excellent (like Cetaphil, CeraVe, Vanicream).

Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream ($64).  I use this organic moisturizer daily and love its smell and texture.  Whenever I have given it as a gift, people love it. 

Dermalogica Total Eye Care ($41).  A great eye cream with sun protection, and not stratospherically expensive, like some other eye creams.

Lemon Cleanser ($36).  Another organic product that I use and that is very popular at my medical practice.

TNS Essential Serum ($247).  Hugely expensive, but perhaps you and your sibs can share the cost of this.  The best anti-aging ingredients in one product.  Check out the reviews at, too.

Or you could put together a little basket of products, including the Jane Iredale Lip Drink ($10.50) and the Iredale Pom Mist ($17.50), perhaps with some Lemon Cleanser.

SkinTour Skincare
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
