I’ve been a beauty editor for the better part of a decade now, and in that time, I’ve learned a lot about skin care and have tried too many products to count. Though the thrill of discovering a new product hasn’t worn off, I’ve become a bit of a skeptic over the years, especially as new brands seem to launch every other day.
But when Dr. Shereene Idriss (of #PillowtalkDerm fame) announced that she was coming out with a skin care line, I was curious enough to give it a try because, at just three products, the streamlined collection didn’t feel overwhelming, and I liked that it had one clear target: discoloration.
As Dr. Idriss explained, “You can have all the lines and wrinkles in the world, but if your skin tone is bright and even, your other skin issues are less noticeable.”
Having experienced melasma after the birth of her son, Dr. Idriss began the search for a solution. While she eventually got things under control using an extensive 10+ step routine including a prescription retinoid, she felt that it was too expensive and cumbersome to keep up with herself—yet alone, her over 850K followers.
