Video: The Other Skincare Company

One doesn’t usually expect a skincare line made for sensitive and acne-prone skin to also be luxurious and rich, but such is the beautiful paradox of The Other Skincare Company.

You Gotta Have FāTH

I thought I never needed to “meet” another new skincare brand– what could one offer me that I don’t already have and love from Maya Chia, Josh Rosebrook, One Love Organics, Leahlani, Tata Harper, etc.?

Yes, You Do Need A Toner (or mist, essence, etc.)

I used to think toners were a huge waste of money. Why not just wipe my face with a damp $20 bill and throw it in the trash? What could a light mist possibly do for my skin that my cream or oil or serum wasn’t already doing better? Well, I was wrong. Turns out, […]

Why Is This Product Different?

Have you ever wondered why your favorite balm or cream is sometimes a slightly different texture or color? Ever wondered why scents vary the tiniest bit from batch to batch of your favorite body oil? Or why the color of a serum isn’t quite the same as it looked in the picture you saw online? […]

How Long Is My Skincare Good For?

When people find out I’m a beauty writer, there are some questions I get asked A LOT: What’s the best product for my teen’s acne?
