A no-bullshit skincare blog

I'm Hilary, a Design Researcher & Voice Interaction Designer, but this is where I talk skincare.

Exploring new skincare methods and products has expanded beyond just my Instagram, I have a lot more to say. I'm starting this blog so that I can share my search for solutions –both literal and figurative– to longtime, seasonal, occasional, and/or I-guess-this-is-what-my-skin-is-doing-now issues.

I will always give honest reviews, no matter what.


I care deeply about mental health. My approach to skin-care and self care is somewhat psychodermatological: finding new rituals and healthy replacement behaviours to heal the physical and psychological scars that come with a life time of depression, anxiety, and self harm.
