    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This antioxidant is loaded with the good stuff.  Vit C in the form of Ascorbyl glucoside (stabilized form of L-ascorbic so it doesn't deteriorate with time), Vit E to also stabilize the Vit C, green tea extract, and ferulic.  All are natural and hydroquinone free.

    The pigment fighter I recommend is the 5-Point Brightener & Pigment Serum.  This serum goes under the Triple Antioxidant Serum, if you have pigment problems like melasma or brown spots.

    The goal of MadisonMD is to produce skin care products for active lifestyles, focused on wellness, skin health & beauty, at a good price point.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Ok.....so the SC antioxidants have been market leaders for some time, but they have not innovated in the past 15 years so I think there better products out there now.  Also these still have propylene glycol in them - sheesh - now in the top 20 of causing allergic reactions. 

    So....I'm biased now toward the product that we created.  Better form of Vit C, less expensive, and no propylene glycol or other irritants.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

     An antioxidant, this is a non irritating Vitamin C lotion that's still light.  With the Vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) as the second ingredient, it has enough concentration of the active to make it effective.  Great for sensitive or easily irritated skin, but also great for those with dry skin.  Use it under your sunscreen in the morning.

    Size: 1 fl. oz

    Who It's For

    Normal to dryer skin types and a good choice for sensitive skin.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    As antioxidants go, I still think the higher quality SkinCeuticals products or the high quality Vitamin C serums are more effective.   But not everyone tolerates those or likes the serum formulation.  This is a good option for those who don't like the serums or gels or just need an antioxidant that's quite gentle.  Contains reservatrol and polyphenol (plant-based antioxidants) isolates.  Also, this is more affordable than the SkinCeuticals ones.

    How to Use

    Apply in the morning under sunscreen or at night under your Vit A cream. 

    Ingredients

    Purified Water, Squalane, Cyclomethicone, Glyceryl Stearate, Behenyl Alcohol, Caffeine U.S.P.

    Who It's For

    All skin types but the most oily and acne prone.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    An excellent antioxidant with 90% polyphenol extracts of green tea.  The cream form is very good for those of you with more sensitive skin or those who just don't like the smell or feel of the Vitamin C serums or gels.  The base is light but moisturizing.  Contains calming plant extracts as well, cucumber and chamomile. 

    How to Use

    Once or twice a day.  Use your antioxidants directly on cleansed skin and put your other products over that. 

    Ingredients

    Purified water, glyceryl stearate (soy), behenyl alcohol, palmitic acid, caffeine UPS, stearic acid, lecithin, lauryl alcohol, myristyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, 90% polyphenol isolate of camellia sinensis leaf, sodium hyaluronate, bisabolol, cucumis sativus (cucumber) extract, chamomilla recutita (chamomile) extract, triethanolamine, polysorbate 20, methylparaben, diazolidinyl urea, phenoxetol, tetrasodium EDT

    $152.00

    Size: 1 fl. oz (30ml) 

    Who It's For

    Be cautious if you have sensitive skin.  Do not use if you are propylene glycol allergic.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Antioxidants (especially the well formulated Vit C products) have beneficial effects on skin.  This product is another version based on the natural antioxidants found in grapes and wine. Antioxidants help prevent the damage to skin cell DNA  from UVA & UVB.  They also help prevent brown spots.  This one is meant to be used at night while their Phloretin CF is recommended under sunscreen in the am.  

    Bottom Line: If you love your morning antioxidant, and get good results, try this one for use at night also.   It's not a substitute for a retinoid though.  Try alternating nights.

    How to Use

    Using the Resveratrol and a retinoid on the same night may be too irritating. Try  alternating it with your retinoid.  It's wise to start any new product cautiously at first and watch for irritation.  Not for sensitive skin.

    Ingredients

    Aqua / Water / Eau, Dimethicone, Propylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Caffeine, Sodium Chloride, Peg/ppg-18/18 Dimethicone, Tocopherol, Resveratrol, Scutellaria Baicalensis Extract / Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Disodium Edta

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
investment
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!
