Super anti-aging hand treatment $ offer.
Renovate! Rejuvenate! Restore the skin on your hands with this amazingly effective anti-aging hand treatment using an exceptional 17.5% esterized Vitamin C in C + Renew Serum plus anti-aging and firming ingredients found only in the Decircle + Firm Eye product.

Purchase a Sensitive Skin Clinic C + Renew Serum at or and you will receive a FREE Sensitive Skin Clinic Decircle + Firm Eye (a $30 value). It will automatically be added to your order.

Offer valid through May 10, 2015.

Every night before bed, apply 1 pump of C + Renew Serum on the back of each hand and smooth it over the skin. Then apply 2 pumps of Decircle + Firm Eyes and smooth over the vitamin C.

The esterized Vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) is able to penetrate the lipid barrier of the skin and stimulate collagen development, act as an antioxidant, as well as support the reduction of sun spots. In Decircle + Firm Eyes there is the amazing antiaging ingredient ergothioneine from mushrooms, as well as peptides and hydroxysuccinamide that help break down oxidized elements stuck in the skin (age spots), and 'flush' them into the lymph system to be 'trashed'. These two products work so well together. Use the same technique on other areas of the body that look older and 'weathered'. After 1 month you will notice the lightening of dark spots on your hands, and after 2 - 3 months you will be amazed at how much 'younger' and more attractive they look.

NEW online Video Consultation with Andrew
Do you need to ask a few questions about what you are using on your skin? You can now book a 15 minute video consultation with me and we can discuss your skin issues and review the products you are presently using.

Sometimes it just takes a slight change in the frequency of using a product in order to achieve your desired results. Sometimes you need to add a product and sometimes you need to eliminate one. I can help you work out what's best for your skin.  

 Skype Video Consultation with Andrew Scoular (all skin types) $25.  

Interesting skin care articles you may have missed

An amazing anti-aging hand treatment. It's on promotion right now!

Trying to make something good out of a bad (weird) Yelp review. Sometimes it's hard to deal with personal attacks.

Food Babe, Science Babe...who the hell are these Babes? Why the marketing hype, media attention and blogging frenzy?

Do your ethics affect your choice of job...and skin care products? or vice versa? It may be a tough question to answer.

Total misinformation about the microbiome diet and your health :-( HELP...

How to reduce pore size - REALLY! YES!

Will a 'cleanse' or 'detox' help your skin? Sometimes the truth bursts our bubbles...

Is that a 'hip' 'cool' cosmetic line or just part of a major corporation? Marketing alert!

Does your favourite big name cosmetic brand test on animals? :-( OH NO!

What's your best approach to acne? Antibiotics (+ side effects) or a holistic approach? Tough choice or tough commitment?

It's nice to know that people sometimes (quietly) heed my advice :-)

Drinking coffee reduces the chance of melanoma??? Should we all get coffee IV's? Or buy coffee stock?

How to fall in love with your sensitive skin!!! YES!

Why the hell do I bother to blog???? A very good question...

Your Review wins a FREE $25 Gift Certificate...
Thank you to everyone who has written YELP reviews Yelp has decided that my move to 520 Montgomery St  (6 blocks from 170 Columbus) is like setting up a new business and that client reviews of 170 Columbus are not relevant to 520 Montgomery (even though I'm still the same person)...   
Anyone who writes a review for Blue Turtle Spa at the 520 Montgomery St Yelp page will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to be used for a facial or products at one of the 2 Blue Turtle Spa locations. There are 100's of gift certificate prizes :-)
There is no expiration date on these gift certificates so you can use it for yourself or give it away as a gift.
Please let me know once you have done it, and your reviewers name. The gift certificate will be mailed to you. 
Wishing you a wonderful Spring and a Happy Mother's/Father's Day.....
