  • organic moisturizer for aging skin
    Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream
    Eminence
    $64.00

    Size: 2 fl oz

    Who It's For

    Mostly for dry, 40+ or estrogen-challenged skin

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Organic. This rich moisturizer contains blueberry extract as an antioxidant and soy which has some estrogenic effects (helps plump the skin). Great for extremely dry skin. Smells wonderful and a very nice consistency.  You don't need much and it's a very popular gift.

    How to Use

    Apply once or twice daily.   You can thin it a little with water in your palm to make it a lighter consistency or if travelling to a more humid climate.   I love this on airplanes to rehydrate hands and face and put it in a small container in my flight bag.  It doesn't have a lot of preservatives, so if you haven't used it in 3 months after opening, throw it out.

    Ingredients

    Blueberry Juice, Blueberry Pulp, Corn Germ Oil, Cetearyl Glucoside, Shea Butter, Soy Yogurt, Raspberry Juice, Bramble Juice, Glyceryl Stearate, Grape Seed Oil, Calendula Oil, Glycerin (Vegetable Based), Xanthan Gum, Biocomplex (Vitamins A-C-E, Coenzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid), Evening Primrose Oil, Glycine Derivative, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid

    SkinMedica
    $66.00

    Size: 2 oz

    Who It's For

    Those with dry or very dry skin.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Similar to La Mer but at half the price, this product is very moisturizing.  Stays on the skin longer than most.  In my own skin care product regimen especially in dryer climates or skiing.  Has a very subtle fragrance that most patients like.

    The Replenish Hydrating Cream comes now in SkinMedica packaging (Allegan, the owner of Vivite, bought SkinMedica).  But it is the same product.

    One to three times a day.

    One of our patients' favorites.  A great mid weight, go-to, every day moisturizer for normal to slightly oily skin types. Very light fragrance and the herbal extracts soothing.

    Hydrating B5 Gel
    SkinCeuticals
    $83.00

    Size: 1 fl oz

    Dr. Irwin's  Review

    Works well as an extra layer of hydration under moisturizer for those who are very dry. Great for acne and oily skin because it's completely oil-free.  Those who feel that most moisturizers are too "greasy" for them will love this. Expensive but worth it.  Sensitive skin loves this product.  Very pure with almost no chemicals.

    Ingredients

    Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pantothenic Acid (vitamin B5), Pheonoxyethanol

  • Stem Cells Intensive Cream
    Stem Cells Intensive Cream
    Pevonia
    $165.50

    Size: 1.7 oz

    Who It's For

    Normal to Dry Skin

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    For normal to dry skin. Medium weight with plant based stem cell extract. The plant based stem cells are meant to stimulate our own dermal stem cells. Stem cells have shown promise in laboratory tests and are being added to many products.  I see this as a product for those who are advanced skin care users who want to try maximize even a little more.   I love Pevonia's more natural creams that are free of harmful chemicals and conform to the EU standards.

    How to Use

    Once or twice a day.  Use it for at least 3 months to see if you see a difference.

    Ingredients

    Water (Aqua), Collagen, Squalane, Glycerin, Cetearyl Glucoside, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Argania Spinosa Callus Culture Extract and Isomalt and Lecithin and Sodium Benzoate and Water, Symphytum Officinale Callus Culture Extract and Isomalt and Lecithin and Sodium Benzoate and Water, Royal Jelly Extract, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vit.

  • Timeless Repair Cream with caviar extracts
    Timeless Repair Cream with caviar extracts
    Pevonia
    $205.00

    Size: 1.7 oz

    Who It's For

    Normal to dry skin

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    For normal to dry skin.  Great under makeup. Caviar extract contains 40 minerals and vitamins.  I honestly have no idea which of those 40 minerals and vitamins are really the "actives," but I have to say this product performs well. They also make a caviar serum that we don't carry yet, that can be used under the cream.  Has a light, unisex fragrance that doesn't compete with after shave or perfume. Moisturizing but a slightly lighter formulation than the Marine Collagen Cream.

    How to Use

    Once or twice daily

    Ingredients

    Water (Aqua), Squalane, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Glycerin, Caviar Extract, Cetearyl Glucoside, Hydrolyzed Hibiscus Esculentus Extract, Dextrin, Algae Oligosaccharides, Sorbitol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Thioctic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate (Vit.

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!
