I had a revelation the other day as I was applying Juvalux face cream to one section of my face and wrinkle cream to the area just .01 inches away from it: Skincare couldn’t be more confusing. Am I wrinkly? Am I pimply? Am I dry? Am I oily? How can I be all these things at one time? Apparently, this is what your 30s looks like. And man, does it make me miss my 21 year old skin. Given that each new inch of my face has a different skincare need, I decided to start a new section on the blog for a bit. Each Monday, I’m going to break down a new skincare dilemma. And in it, I’ll be featuring some of the products above. Starting next week, I’ll road test a bevy of eye creams and let you know which ones make it look like I’ve just been cast in the roll of sleeping beauty.

In future weeks I’ll also break down pigment problems, moisturizers with SPF, overall skincare and wrinkle creams. All the while praying for my 21 year old skin to be available in a easy-pump bottle.
