    $54.00

    Size: 0.42 oz (12 grams)

    Who It's For

    Anyone with spots or bruises (from cosmetic/laser they want to cover.  Available in two shades, light to medium, and tan to dark.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This the best invention since the iphone (jk). It contains 5 different shades of mineral cover-up that can be mixed to actually cover just about anything including a black tattoo. It covers acne, brown spots, anything red, and bruises!  Put all your regular products on first including makeup if used, then apply.  It works on skin types 1-4. Our patients and staff thought the darker palette for types 5, 6 was too orangey so we don't carry it.

     

    How to Use

    Put all of your products and normal makeup on first.  Then use the little brush to spot treat the trouble spots. Sometimes you need to use several of the colors together to get the right blend and it's fine to do that!

    SPF 30 Powder Sunscreen
    Colorescience
    $57.00

    Size: 0.21 oz

    Who It's For

    Everyone, nice for kids and men, and for double coverage over a lotion or cream sunscreen.  Especially key for those with melasma or other pigment problems.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Powder Sunscreen. This is a great invention.  I love this product and use it all the time. The Medium shade is pretty clear and good for all sites.  The Tan shade is the tinted version and is nice for the face.  Especially great for outdoor sports because it can be reapplied without getting your hands greasy. It's also fast to apply due to the built-in brush applicator. Even better over a lotion sunscreen base.  I often use this product over a lotion/cream sunscreen base especially for athletics and high sun situations.

    Good for golf, cycling, hiking, open-water swimming, rock climbing, long distance running, rowing, and many other situations where grease doesn't cut it. It's lightweight and small to carry. Men and kids like this product usually.

    Great for a humid climate (or oily skin), because it goes on dry and leaves no oily, greasy sheen. Expensive but worth it, and it lasts a long time. Layer it over a sunscreen lotion for maximum protection at altitude or in intense sun. Men like this product usually.  Make sure to apply it in a well-ventilated area.

    Use this SPF 30 for everyday use.  Use the SPF 50 for outdoor activities or occupations or if you want extra protection. 

    How to Use

    Apply this in a well-ventilated area, and do not breathe in the powder.  Brush on skin that has some moisture or lotion on it (i.e., not on dry skin) before sun exposure, repeat application after perspiring, immersion in water or toweling.  It comes in a small tube, with a self-contained brush. You just shake the powder down, and brush on the powder. The powder stays on your skin, and the high zinc and titanium content gives you great UVA and UVB blocking.

    Ingredients

    Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide (12%), Zinc Oxide (12%) Inactive Ingredients: bismuth oxychloride, calcium, cilicate, corallina officinalis, dimethicone, dimethicone/vinyldimethicone crosspolymer, iron oxide, manganese, violet, mica, titanium dioxide

  • Gentle exfoliating skin scrub for face
    Algae Polishing Scrub
    DermaQuest
    $28.00

    Size: 4 fl oz

    Who It's For

    Scrubs are best daily for those with oily skin, large pores and acne but cut back if you get irritated or seem too dry. They should be used only once or twice a week otherwise. Over scrubbing is easy to do. 

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    We tested about 10 different facial scrubs and most were either too harsh or just annoying in some way - like horrid fragrance, etc. We liked two of them and this was one.  (The Eminence Citrus Exfoliating Wash was the other.) This one is still very gentle (good), but creamier and more hydrating than the Citrus Wash.  You could use this daily if you have oily skin and acne or several times a week otherwise. Could be used with the Clarisonic Mia.

    How to Use

    See above, depends on skin type and what other products are being used.  Remember that all retinoids and glycolics exfoliate to some extent.

    ZinClear SPF 30 Non-tinted (now called SheerZinc)
    DermaQuest
    $51.50

    Size: 2 fl. oz

    Who It's For

    Great daily sunscreen (not for sports, water etc.) for those who want the extra zinc especially for melasma or other pigment problem.  Works well for all but the darkest skin types - could be a little chalky here but you can put makeup over it. 

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Still one of my favorites. Note that this is now called SheerZinc.  New name, but the same excellent product.  No other sunscreen has 18% zinc and goes on this well that I’ve ever seen. This is the clear, non-tinted version which goes on fairly white but absorbs quite well after several minutes.  Scroll down to see the tinted version which many like better.

    Great for melasma and anyone with pigment problems due to the 18% zinc. This is a physical (mineral) sunscreen, meaning that it contains no sunscreen chemicals. Excellent also for sensitive skin. Expensive, but worth it for the extra protection.

    How to Use

    Apply sunblock in the morning and reapply every 2-3 hours if sweating or outdoors.

    Ingredients

    Active Ingredient: Zinc Oxide 18.60%, Inactive Ingredients: Water, Cyclomethicone, Glycerine, Glyceryl Stearate and PEG 100 Stearate, Sorbitol, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbitan Stearate, Lecithin, Arabidopsis Extract, Plankton Extract, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA

    Note that we carry the tinted version called "Nude," which has the least amount of dark tint.  If you want a darker shade, you can order "Tan" or "Sunkissed" through another site.  We do carry the non-tinted version also here on SkinTour.

    Great for melasma and anyone with pigment problems due to the 18% zinc. This is a physical (mineral) sunscreen, meaning that it contains no sunscreen chemicals. Excellent also for sensitive skin. Expensive, but worth it for the extra protection.

    Best for oily and acne prone skin.  Men tend to like this product because it's light and nongreasy.

    Who It's For

    Best for normal to combination skin to moisturize and protect from sun damage.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This is my favorite daily sunscreen, and it is more affordable than my other daily favorite, the DermaQuest ZinClear. It's lightly tinted and lightly moisturizing, but isn't oily. Goes on sheer with just a hint of color and make-up goes well over it. Has 9% zinc oxide. A little hyaluronic acid in it improves skin texture. Paraben free. Men usually like this product. 

    The Tinted version just adds a bit of color, which is great for summer and fall.

    How to Use

    Use daily on face, neck, chest and hands, 30 minutes before sun exposure.

    Light, sheer, daily SPF 40 (but not as light as the Clear) with 9% Zinc Oxide for good UVA and UVB protection. For the face, either alone or under makeup. Glides on easily and absorbs quickly into the skin. Hyaluronic acid to increase skin smoothness and softness and to decrease appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Paraben-free.

    Size: 7 fl. oz

    Who It's For

    Great for those times when you want a pump and a bigger size to do larger areas. The facial sunscreens are too expensive to use all over.  Not for areas with acne or oily skin.  Rubs in easily.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This is a fabulous product at a good price.  It's the highest quality sunscreen (7.5% zinc) that comes in a larger, pump size, that I've found anyway.  Comes in a 7 oz pump and can be used for face or body. Contains zinc 7% (blocks full spectrum UVA) plus a common UVB blocker. Paraben free.  Not too chalky.

    How to Use

    Use daily on face, neck, chest and hands, 30 minutes before sun exposure.

    $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.

    Size: 8.4 fl oz

    Who It's For

    Normal to slightly dry.  This lotion is ideal for skin types, except the very dryest.  Good for sensitive skin.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Organic. I love this product and use it almost every day. It goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly without being too thick or sticky. A subtle, honeydew fragrance that lingers just long enough but doesn't compete with perfume.  The oils in it are effective but not greasy at all.   Why use organic?  Especially on the body (a lot of surface area), it's nice to avoid the extra chemicals even in great products.

    How to Use

    Rub all over dry, clean skin as often as desired to hydrate and renew.

    Ingredients

    Who It's For

    Good for most skin types, especially dry or sensitive skin. Not great for oily skin or citrus allergies. 

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Organic. I use this organic cleanser as part of my own daily regimen. It cleans well but without stripping off natural oils. Like many Eminence products, it has a subtle fragrance that's not overpowering or too long lasting.  A creamy base.

    How to Use

    Apply to damp skin and massage gently once or twice a day.

    Size: 2 fl. oz

    Who It's For

    Ideal for normal to oily and combination skin to balance out moisture levels without clogging the pores.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Our patients with oilier skin love this. Organic and oil-free, a hard combination to find. This is a lightweight and lightly scented moisturizer, with some antioxidants. It can be hard to find a good moisturizer like this for oilier skin, and this works really well with skin that is oilier than normal or a bit acne prone. Expensive, but you don't need to use a lot.

    How to Use

    Apply a thin layer to cleansed skin as a moisturizer. For a lighter application, dilute product with water as needed.

    Size: 5 fl oz.

    Who It's For

    All skin types except the oiliest and acne prone. 

    Dr. Irwin's Review: Organic. Zinc 5%. Very similar to the cream with the same name but a better value. You could easily use this on your face, it’s just a little less hydrating than the cream. It doesn't seem to stain clothing and contains zinc 5% which blocks UV through the full spectrum.  It's in a larger size which makes it more cost effective on the body. 

    How to Use

    Apply liberally all over skin about 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and every 2-3 hours thereafter. Reapply after swimming or sweating

    Who It's For

    Great for dry to normal skin.  Too chalky for the darkest skin types or oily skin.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Organic. Great product on the the neck and chest because it's very hydrating (remember very few oil glands on the neck especially), doesn't stain clothing and contains zinc 5% which blocks UV through the full spectrum.  Subtle fragrance and a little chalky at first but absorbs well after a few minutes.

    How to Use

    Apply a generous amount to facial skin about 30 minutes prior to sun exposure. Massage until product is fully absorbed and reapply as necessary after excessive sweating or swimming.

    $98.00

    Size: 30 ml

    Who It's For

    Sun damaged, aging and normal to dry skin.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Like TNS from SkinMedica, NeoCutis has it's own proprietary blend of skin cell growth factors, cytokines and proteins from young skin cells grown in the lab.  The actual science behind these is suggestive but not conclusive.  Most patients who have used these, concluded they were beneficial.

    Comparing this to TNS, they are very similar but this is a better price and more hydrating - it's a cream.  The TNS product is actually .63 oz for $165 and this product is $98 for 1 oz.   See also the Bio-Serum by NeoCutis which is more like the TNS in consistency. 

    How to Use

    After cleansing once or twice a day. Could be used as your moisturizer and antiaging treatment product.

    Who It's For

    All skin types except the oiliest.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    Finally!  A tinted moisturizer with a high quality sunscreen.  Zinc 7.3% and has a universal tint works for most except the darkest skin types.  Our office really likes this product because the tint gives a little coverage like a tinted moisturizer but has a matte finish -  definitely more matte than the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion Product which has an oilier base that's great for dry skin.   

    How to Use

    In the morning over your antioxidant and moisturizer (if you need one).  Can use alone or put over a sunscreen if active or outside a lot.

    Size: 0.5 oz

    Who It's For

    Ideal for those with wrinkles and sun damage on the eyelids and around the eye area.  

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This one is interesting and supported by a study in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology. Contains PSP which is just their term for a soup of human growth factors, cytokines and interleukins (cell activators similar to TNS).  Also contains hyaluronate, a form of hyaluronic acid.  This product seems to work but my guess is Neocutis doesn’t know exactly what

    in it is working. It’s worth trying, in my opinion.  Contains a yam extract which plumps the thin skin around the eyes.

    How to Use

    Apply morning and/or night to the eyelids down to the cheek margin and include the wrinkles ("crow's feet")

    Size: 1 fl. oz. (30ml)

    Who It's For

    In my opinion, everyone (as long as no allergies or irritation) should use either the prescription form (stronger), or a nonprescription retinoid like one of these.  They still do more than any other topical to build collagen, reverse sun damage, help keep pigment even, and help prevent precancerous lesions and skin cancers.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This is an excellent 0.6% retinol (vitamin A cousin) cream, which is slightly stronger than the SkinMedica (0.25%).  If you've never used retinol or the prescription versions like tretinoin (generic), Retin A, Renova, etc., start with the more gentle, lower-strength SkinMedica Retinol Complex 0.25%.  If you are doing well with that after awhile, then try going up to this one. 

    If you already use the prescription forms which are stronger (but can be more irritating), then don't use these.  This has a nice midweight base - not oily but also not drying.

    A nice bonus on this product: they originally had this as Nouvelle Retinol Skin Cream but recently reformulated it to include a gentle, non-hydroquinone pigment corrector Melanex. 

    How to Use

    Always at night because light inactivates it.  It's fine to put it over your moisturizer and wait 10-15 min. if you are prone to irritation.

    Who It's For

    An affordable cream for normal to dry skin and a good choice for younger skin.  Use the lotion version of this if you have acne or oily skin.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This alpha hydroxy based cream is good for normal to dry skin, isn't irritating, and it helps regenerate collagen a little  and speed natural exfoliation. Also helps with acne. But use the lotion not the cream if your skin is really oily or acne prone. Good choice for teens to early 30s.  Good price point.

    How to Use

    Apply to face and neck once daily for two weeks and twice daily thereafter, as tolerated. Gently smooth in the cream until it disappears. You must use a sunscreen daily if you are using a glycolic product.

    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 almost everything.  They do seem to produce results in many, and again, it's difficult to know, until there's more research, exactly how they are doing that.   I see this as a product for those who are advanced skin care users who want to try maximize even a little more.

    Who It's For

    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.

    An excellent gentle exfoliating cleanser for frequent or occasional use. The jojoba beads are rounded and won’t irritate or tear your skin.  So many exfoliating cleasers are really just too harsh to use daily.  This one isn't.  Creamy and a pleasure to use.

    These natural oils really work! A blend of 3 - safflower, macadamia nut and lavender oil and with aloe for the irritation that dry skin can cause.  The fragrance is light, clean and sexy.   I use it alone or even over a body lotion if I'm super dry, which I usually am in the winter here.   This is NOT greasy and won't get on clothing.  Just give it a minute to absorb.

    My personal eye cream.  Gentle and helps with early fine lines and crepeyness.  Contains hyaluronic acid, Vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate), Vit E, Glycolic acid (low concentration for the eye area), a little sunscreen, and a Vitamin C ester.  It has enough low strength actives (better for the eye area) to be effective.  Results evident at 30-60 days.  I love the NeoCutis Lumerie Riche too, but I Iike to try new products and change things up sometime.

    Mid weight, hydrating and good for sensitive skin.

    Who It's For

    Best for those who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark circles around their eyes.  Don"t use if you have a propylene glycol allergy.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This is a good retinol option for the eye area.   It's gentle enough for most people to use while giving the benefits that retinoids do - decreasing fine wrinkles, helping to control pigment and dark circles, and improving sun damage overall.   For most people trying to use Renova, tretinoin or other retinoids is too irritating on eyelid skin.    Also contains antioxidants green tea polyphenols and vitamin C, Arnica, and a peptide.   Remember that wearing sunglasses really helps to protect the eye area also.

    How to Use

    Apply around your eyes once or twice daily.  It's fine to apply a moisturizer over or under this - just wait 5-10 minutes in between.

    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.

    This is a very user friendly, lovely product.  Why aren't more spray sunscreens like this one??  It's meant for the body and larger areas but could be used on the face - just close your eyes.  Lightweight, not greasy, spreads easily, neutral but pleasant smell and 12% zinc for UVA and UVB protection!!!

    Great for golf, tennis, boating because you don't need to get your hands all goo-ey with lotion.

    The spray conserves product well so you don't waste it, by staying where you point it.

    Who It's For

    Mild to moderate brown spots or other pigmentation problems and for those who can't or don't want to use hydroquinones.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    SkinCeuticals Advanced Pigment Corrector contains actives 0.5% Ellagic Acid, 5.0% yeast extract, 0.3% salicylic acid and more ingredients. All of these lighten pigment. Small studies show similar results to prescription strength hydroquinone 4% but without the irritation or potential toxicity. Good alternative to hydroquinones in the winter and for anyone who is allergic to or irritated by hydroquinones.  We are getting good reports from our patients on this product.

    SkinMedica has also come out with Lytera. We don’t know yet which of these two works best. I recommend trying one for 3 months and then the other for 3 months and see which works best until we have more information. Please remember that none of these including prescription strength hydroquinones offer miracles for pigment problems.

    How to Use

    Once or twice a day on cleansed skin. My bias is to put any antioxidant or cell growth factors on first, and then the lightening cream. Then use a high zinc (>10%) sunscreen and double layer with a 2nd sunscreen like the Colorscience powder.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

     Antioxidant/Anti-Glycation: The gentle antioxidant (in this case plant flavanoids) with peptides are present in other eye creams. What's new here is the addition of plant based anti-glycation extracts. Glycation causes breakdown of the collagen and elastin fibers over time. Interesting product but  what works in cells in a lab doesn't always work in live humans. Most of our patients who used this product got nice results.

Very moisturizing.  It has 17.7% urea which is used at much higher concentrations in some prescription products.  At this level it is extremely hydrating and you will notice a difference within a week. Also contains 2% rice protein.  Also good if you are a swimmer in chlorinated pools.

    Who It's For

    Oily, acne-prone skin that still needs hydration without any oil.  Good also if you are dryer but still acne prone.  Men generally like this product.  OR.....for very dry skin, as a layer under your moisturizer.

    Dr. Irwin's Product Review

    This product has three great uses:

    1. Men and almost anyone with oily or acne prone skin, love this product. Its hyaluronic acid base adds hydration without any oil. Very light, and still hydrating. One of the best moisturizers on the market for oily skin, in my opinion.  Expensive but worth it.

    2. As an layer under moisturizer, for very dry skin or skin that doesn't retain surface moisture very well - like the month or two after a laser procedure or peel.  Use it help retain moisture in the skin and put your moisturizer and sunscreen over it.

    3. For sensitive skin  -  tends to be well tolerated since very few chemicals.

      How to Use

      One to three times a day.  Good for use with a Vitamin C serum (use the serum first, then this), and can be used under another moisturizer or sunscreen

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      Finally a good product for the neck, chest and hands.  Does seem to improve color and texture overall but don't expect change in deeper wrinkles or raised brown spots. You need your dermatologist for those.

      How to Use

      Every morning under sunscreen and every evening under moisturizer on the neck, chest, and hands.

      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%, phoretin 2%, and ferrulic 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.

      Who It's For

      See review.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      This product goes right on the eyelids and whole eye socket area (periorbital) - it's formulated for this sensitive skin.  Here's who really needs this product: anyone who has a fair amount of sun damage and/or wrinkles around the eyes; anyone who is undergoing laser procedures around the eyes; anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, but especially runners, cyclists, golfers, open water swimmers, and hikers/climbers; and......anyone who doesn't wear sunglasses regularly.  It doesn't sting the eyes with sweating. 

      How to Use

      You can use it alone.  For women, I personally like my eye cream under it and sometimes then even use a concealer over it.  It works with eye makeup well.

      Ingredients

      Actives are titanium 9% and zinc 4%.  I'd rather these were reversed so there was more zinc but it still blocks the UVB.  It blocks the UVA fairly well but not perfectly. Titanium Dioxide 9%, Zinc Oxide 4%.

      Who It's For

      Not for oily skin but most other skin types will do well with this. Works fairly well for darker skin types but some find it won't blend well.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      Zinc 5%/titanium 6%.  Most who have tested this loved it. At least half my office uses it. Lightweight, with a slight universal tint so not too chalky. Water resistant, mineral block with zinc, paraben-free.  Goes well under makeup as a base.  The Neocutis tinted sunscreen is more matte.

      How to Use

      In the morning over your antioxidant and moisturizer.  Reapply if swimming, sweating, out a long time, etc.

      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

      The thinking behind this product is that  we know that antioxidants (especially the well formulated Vit C products) have beneficial effects on skin.  So would adding another one be even better at preventing formation of free radicals in response to UV radiation?  This one is meant to be used at night while their Phloretin CF is recommended under sunscreen in the am.   Studies on this product were done, but the study design wasn't perfect.

      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.  They still are the gold standard for antiaging topicals. 

      How to Use

      Use in the evening under your retinoid or alternate it with your retinoid.  It's often wise to start a new product cautiously at first and watch for irritation.  

      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

      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

      Size: 1 fl. oz

      Who It's For

      Almost everyone who's trying to repair sun damage and prevent wrinkles and skin cancers should be on one of these vitamin A "cousins."   A few will be too sensitive for retinoids and should use a combination of cell growth factors and antioxidants instead.  Don't use if you have a propylene glycol allergy. 

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      This product is now an excellent value for its price point!   The generic prescription tretinoin and all the prescription retinoids like Renova have gotten very expensive.  This product is quite similar in strength to Retin A .25% but at a much better price.   If you've used prescription products before, you should do well with this.   If you haven't used them before, consider starting with the SkinMedica Retinol .25 first, then going to the NeoCutis Nouvelle+ (.6%), and then this SkinCeuticals 1.0.

      How to Use

      Always at night.  Usually best to put a moisturizer on, wait 5-10 minutes and then apply a pea sized amount.  You don't need very much.

      Who It's For

      Great for normal or dry skin, but can be used by anyone who wants their skin to look smoother and more glowing. Not for acne prone skin though.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

       I wish they would re-name this product, because it's a great moisturizer, not really a repair cream.  It has one wonderful property in particular - the best light diffusers of any moisturizers I've seen! It makes your skin look like you just actually got 8 hours of sleep or are at a candlelit dinner. There's a slight golden glow with reflectors that makes skin look wonderful. Worth a try especially if your skin tends to be dull or you're not getting enough sleep (sleep is better).

      The jar for this is beautiful, very sculptural almost like a fine perfume, so it makes a nice gift.

      Note: we've had a couple users return this product because the jar did not look full.  So don't be surprised if the jar looks only 2/3 full - it comes that way and has it's full 1.7 ozs.

      Size: 2 fl. oz

      Who It's For

      Mild to moderate brown spots or other pigmentation problems and for those who can't or don't want to use hydroquinones.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      SkinMedica Lytera Skin Brightening Complex contains 9 different actives (but no percentages listed) including Vitamin B5, Vitamin C, Retinol, Tetrapeptide-30, a licorice extract and more. Small studies show similar results to prescription-strength hydroquinone 4% but without the irritation or potential toxicity. Good alternative to hydroquinones in the winter and for anyone who is allergic to or irritated by hydroquinones.

      SkinCeuticals has also come out with Advanced Pigment Corrector. We don’t know yet which of these two works best.  I recommend trying one for 3 months and then the other for 3 months and see which works best until we have more information.   Please remember that none of these, including prescription strength hydroquinones, offer miracles for pigment problems.

      How to Use

      Once or twice a day on cleansed skin.  Note that the cream comes out a light caramel color, not white.  My bias is to put any antioxidant or cell growth factors on first, and then the lightening cream. Then use a high zinc (>10%) sunscreen and double layer with a 2nd sunscreen like the Colorscience powder.

      Size: 1 oz

      Who It's For

      For sun-damaged skin and for those wanting to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and aging.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

       This is SkinMedica's updated version of the old Tri-Retinol Complex, and it is still an excellent over-the-counter retinol.  At this percentage, the effects are similar to Renova/tretinoin, etc. Use at night. If you can use the prescription version of tretinoin (like Renova), do so - but many people don’t want to be bothered with a prescription and the two retinols listed on this site are almost as good. This retinol also has vitamin E in a base that will not clog pores and is still compatible with moisturizers and sunscreens. Also see the Neocutis Nouvelle+Retinol Correction Cream.  Start with this one though if you have never used a retinoid before.

      Retinoids are repair creams that have 20 years of science and experience behind them. They build collagen and normalize sun damaged keratinocytes (skin cells) and help to prevent precancerous growths and skin cancers if used regularly. 

      How to Use

      Apply one pump to the face at night. Always use at night - light inactivates it. Begin using twice per week, then increase gradually.  If this product irritates your skin a little, try applying your moisturizer first, then wait 10-20 minutes, then apply this. You must use a sunscreen every morning if you use a retinoid because your skin will be just slightly more sun sensitive.  Stop this product a week before sunny vacations and consider not using it if you can't be consistent with sunscreen or truly are outdoors constantly.

      Cell Growth Factors/Antioxidants/ Peptides. Especially good for those women who want to do things as quickly as possible and have no patience with multiple steps. I wish I could bathe in this product, but it’s too expensive.

      Use it at night or under your sunscreen in the morning or both. It’s the first “double pump” product I’ve seen that works well. You press the plunger and it dispenses your cell growth factor serum (TNS Recovery – the reddish one) AND your antioxidant and peptide mix at the same time. 

      There are 7 different antioxidants so it’s hard to compare it with other antioxidant serums (7 is not always better than 1). Has some weak plant based skin lighteners.

      Expensive but could be worth it, in my opinion, especially if you hate multiple steps. 

      How to Use

      After cleansing both morning and night, massage gently over entire face.

      Who It's For

      Sun-damaged or aging skin, especially for the time pressured.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      Contains Cell Growth Factors - this was the original cell growth factor product by SkinMedica.  Still a good product.   This is a product with less science behind it than the retinoids and high quality antioxidants so make sure you're using those first and then add this as a third anti-aging product.  My recommendation is to use your antioxidant as a first layer in the morning, followed by moisturizer and/or sunscreen.  Use this as a first layer at night followed by moisturizer then Renova/Retin A/tretinoin.

      The more expensive version just prior has added antioxidants and peptides. 

      How to Use

      Use it under your sunscreen in the morning or at night or both.  After cleansing both morning and night, massage gently over entire face.

    15. Glycolic antiaging night wrinkle cream
      GlyPro Renewal Cream
      SkinMedica
      $89.00

      Size: 2 oz

      Who It's For

      Those who love that "glow" that comes with great antiaging products. Okay for all skin types.  Men love this product also. 

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      This is the old Vivite Night Renewal Facial Cream, but SkinMedica bought Vivite and tweaked the Night Renewal Cream just a bit.  A 20% glycolic night cream. I have to confess I was originally skeptical about this product.  There are many glycolic products out there but this one truly is one of the best.  I use it now alternating nights - one night Renova and the next this product. I seem to get even better results. Try putting this over your moisturizer like you do your retinoid.  It does tingle or sting just a little for about 2-5 minutes. This is normal for this product.

      How to Use

      Nightly or every other night. A little stinging or tingling is normal but if it lasts longer, is painful, or is making you red or irritated, stop using it.  Glycolics can cause some sun sensitivity, so wear sunscreen or sun protective clothing if you are using this.

      Sensitive Skin Cleanser
      SkinMedica
      $36.00

       Size: 6 fl. oz

      Who It's For

      Dry, sensitive or post-procedure skin.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      We often use this cleanser for our post-laser care patients and others with sensitive or very dry skin.   Very creamy, moisturizing but removes make-up.  Packaging is travel friendly, but you have to check it (larger than 3 ounces so you cannot carry it on).  Most with sensitive skin do very well with this cleanser.  Not drying.   

      How to Use

      Use gently with your hands twice a day.

      Ingredients

      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.

      How to Use

      One to three times a day.

      Ingredients

      Purified Water, Glycerin, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Sucrose Cocoate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isododecane, Isohexadecane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Sericin, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Sodium PCA, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol, Glycosaminoglycans, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Cholesterol, Polysilicone-11, Millet (Panicum Millaceum) Extract, Methylparaben, Camellia Oleifera Extract, Cellulose Gum, Cetyl Hydroxyethylcellulose, Propylparaben, Tocopherol, Butylene Glycol Linoleic Acid, Linolenic Acid, Ceramide III, Allantoin Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Superoxide Dismutase, And Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate

    19. Medium skin color self tanner from Sun Laboratories
      Self-Tanning Lotion - Medium
      Sun Laboratories
      $30.00

      Size: 8 fl. oz

      Who It's For

      Good for all skin types except the very lightest.  Not that dark when it develops.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      Sun Laboratories makes great self tanners. Their products go on well, without being too heavy or greasy. They smell reasonably good - not that chemical smell you get with many self tanners. They don't streak (unless your application is really bad), and the color tone is natural, not too orange.  We now carry the Medium, which gives some color but is not too dark.  You can start with a small amount and rub it in well, then see how dark it comes out.  You can always add more the next day.

      How to Use

      Always exfoliate well first and be careful around joints and feet to not apply too much.  Rub in thoroughly and apply with gloves or wash your hands well after application.  Brown spots on your skin will tend to pick up more self-tanner.  So if you have have brown spots, you may want to take a Q-Tip and rub off the self-tanner on them.  Put regular skin cream on your hands before applying self-tanner; that helps to get the self-tanner off your fingers when you're done.  Or use exam gloves (drugstore).

      Benzoyl Peroxide 5% Wash
      Topix
      $16.00

      Size: 8 fl oz

      Who It's For

      Oily skin and acne only

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      This is a good, basic benzoyl peroxide wash at a good price.  Great for teens and 20s with lots of oil.

      How to Use

      Use once or twice a day but all BP products may stain towels, pillow cases and sometimes clothing so generally we recommend using in the morning only.  The wash (as opposed to a cream) does that less since you are rinsing it off.

      Ingredients

      Active Ingredients: Benzoyl Peroxide 5%, Inactive Ingredients: Carbomer, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Sodium C14-16 Olegin Sulfonate, Water

      Who It's For

      Everyone except people who don't like even slightly glossy.

      Dr. Irwin's Product Review

      One of my favorite lip balms, and a very popular product at the dermatology practice.  Comes in four flavors, and the SPF 25 helps keep your lips from getting sunburned, wrinkled and faded from sun damage. Not to mention helping to prevent skin cancers on the lips which are common!  I love this product and have one in my car, one at work, one in my cycling jacket, several at home and give them out a lot as small gifts.

      This is great for daily and casual sports use.  If you're climbing Mt. Everest or skiing all day, use a high zinc - think whiter - balm or paste for better sun protection.

      The blue and black packaging is usually acceptable to men!

      This 4-pack limited edition has four flavors:

      • Natural Mint & Shea Butter
      • Mango & Mandarin
      • Vanilla & Natural Mint
      • Asian Pear & White Tea

      How to Use

      10 times a day (only partially joking).  It's good over lipstick too but will make the lipstick wear off a little faster.

      Ingredients

      Avobenzone(Parsol 1789) 3%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Petrolatum (40.2%), Beeswax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, C 18-38 Alkyl Hydroxystearol Stearate, Camellia Sinenesis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cyclohexasiloxane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Flavor, Lanolin, Microcrystalline Wax, Ozokerite, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Polyglyceryl 3 Beeswax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate.

    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!
