California Skincare Supply – The Professional’s Skincare Shopping Mall

30 Day Skincare Challenge – Barry’s California Skincare Supply Review


Asking me to review California Skincare Supply is like asking a French person to review Paris.  Duh, I love everything, which is exactly what you expect from Kelli and Jullea Anderson, the mother/daughter duo who are currently running California Skincare Supply.  Jullea is the 3rd generation to work inside this female, family owned business.

I’ve been trusting California Skincare Supply to do, well, just about anything they want to my skin for almost 5 years!   There was the time they did a 3 layer peel that included a microneedling alternative – this treatment SIZZLED!

Then there was the time we cocktailed multiple chemical peels and multiple treatment masks  to create a treatment that could revive the most damaged skin!

California Skincare Supply Microneedling Alternative Peel

Here’s a quick video that showcases that 2B Bio Peel that is a great micrneedling alternative!  It’s great to do on its own or you can layer in a few chemical peels to add some heat!

I love the team at California Skincare Supply – you have access to a one stop shop for 20+ brands and all of their top notch educaiton!   You’re also more than a client – you’re family!

Shir-Organics - Pure AHA Treatment Scrub

“Ok, this is one of those scrubs that you can take from a gentle whisper of exfoliation to an all out assault on your dead skin.  The granuals are no joke and if you leave it on during a hot shower – those AHA’s can really dig in and do a bang up job.” Barry

AHAs are a mix, “fruity cocktail acids,” mostly derived from sugar cane, lemon, apples and grapes, which have extremely beneficial properties for the face and skin. These acids help clarify and polish the skin’s surface. AHAs provide a better absorption level of other skin care treatments, therefore stimulating new skin, leaving it younger, and healthier looking. The natural exfoliating beads are a bonus to this treatment; improving the skin’s overall tone and texture. The Pure AHA Treatment Scrub will provide rejuvenation and health to even the most lackluster skin and reveal a baby-soft complexion.


• Blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and refines and balances skin tone
• Natural non-abrasive, ultra-fine bamboo and jojoba beads gently unclog pores and exfoliate skin
• Restores smoothness to skin and combats appearance of fine lines
• Brightens complexion, leaving skin more radiant
