    Size: 1 fl. oz

    Who It's For

    All but sensitive skin.  If you are sensitive, try this in a small amount for a few days on a test area.  

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    SkinCeuticals made its name originally by making the best antioxidants, and this one is no exception. 3 antioxidants in one, it contains L-ascorbic acid 10%, phloretin 2%, and ferulic acid 0.5%. My personal antioxidant under my sunscreen. The same high quality without the glass jars - love the new closed pump with its travel-friendly packaging. Oxidizes only minimally with time (turns slightly yellow).

    How to Use

    Apply after cleansing and under your moisturizer and/or sunscreen.

    Ingredients

    2% Phloretin, 10% L-Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C), 0.5% Ferulic Acid

  • moisturizing antioxidant cream
    Power of Three Cream
    Replenix
    $89.00

    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. Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Lecithin, Lauryl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Polyphenols, Resveratrol, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Bisabolol, Chamomilla Recutila (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Polysorbate-20, Carbomer, Caprylyl Glycol, Triethanolaine, Sorbic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA

  • antioxidant cream, oily and acne prone skin
    Replenix Cream CF
    Replenix
    $89.00

    Size: 1 fl. oz

    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

  • Resveratrol Antioxidant for Anti-aging and wrinkles
    Resveratrol B E Antioxidant
    SkinCeuticals
    $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

  • antioxidant, anti-aging, normal to dry skin
    Serum 20 AOX+
    SkinCeuticals
    $125.00

    Size: 1 fl. oz

    Who It's For

    This will be too irritating for some.  Use the Replenix Cream CF or Power of Three antioxidants if you can't use or don't like the vitamin C antioxidants. Normal or oily skin and anyone looking for the antiaging properties of a good antioxidant.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Vitamin C 20%. Very high quality in that it uses L-ascorbic acid which penetrates cells well and has been proven to protect cells from UV damage to skin cell DNA, promote more even pigment, and help with fine lines.  Start with the Replenix Cream CF or the Replenix Power of Three though if you haven't used antioxidants before.

    In Vitamin Cs the better quality products are serums or gels in a 10-20% concentration, contain L-ascorbic acid (not the Vitamin C esters), and are PH-ed to about 3.0. There are many expensive Vitamin Cs on the market that are not as good as this one here.  You should use this up in about 3-4 months.

    How to Use

    Use on cleansed skin in the morning under moisturizer and sunscreen.  It's fine to use these at night also if you are not using a retinoid then.  Using both at night is irritating for most people. 

    Ingredients

    Water, L-Ascorbic Acid, Ethoxydiglycol, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Zinc Sulfate, Phenoxyethanol, Ferulic Acid, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide

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!
