I hope you’re all having an awesome week.
As a Beauty Editor I come across many, many products (some amazing, some not so much). Below are some of my favourite products discovered thus far:
1.Revitalizing Bio Cellulose Face Mask – Lucia Magnani, £45, www.luciamagnani.com
As a big fan of sheet masks, I was so excited to receive the Lucia Magnani sheet mask to try. Incredibly luxurious, bursting with amazing ingredients and the ultimate in skin pampering (without travelling miles and spending a fortune at the nearest spa). This mask is every bit as good as I’d imagined it to be – and then a whole lot more IRL. My complexion was actually transformed, fine lines were noticeably reduced, and my skin felt and looked firmer, smoother and altogether fabulous. This is one mask that will be damn hard to top – everyone should keep one in their makeup cabinet for that special night or for an emergency beauty event. I love, love, love this mask!
2.MAKE UP FOREVER Foundation Face & Body, £31, www.escentual.com
Until recently I haven’t had much experience of body foundations; since trying this one by Makeup Forever, I am a changed woman (quite literally). If you have missed out on your fake tan appointment, or putting off wearing that slinky dress because the winter has left your skin looking tired and neglected – this is the perfect product to buy. Makeup Forever’s foundation glides on seamlessly creating flawless results. So happy!
3. Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Overnight Hand Therapy, £19, www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk
Our hands are often forgotten – and given the fact that I am always the one lumbered with the cleaning products and never bothering to put the gloves on (I know – cardinal sin), my hands appear more like something from Gardeners Weekly/Roofers Weekly/Witches Weekly (take your pick), than the flawless fingers of a beauty editor. The other morning, I actually glanced down at hands and sheer horror gripped my face – they actually looked more like my nan’s hands (sorry nan). Time for some serious TLC.
Now there seems to be an end to the cold spell we have no excuse to ignore our weathered hands. This is where Crabtree & Evelyn come in: their La Source Hand Therapy combines an array of amino acids and vitamins that thoroughly transform both the hands and nails, whilst simultaneously providing the utmost protection. what is more, this product smells so good that reapplication each day will definitely be a pleasure and never a chore.
4.Kypris Beauty Elixir 1 Face Oil, £216, www.naturisimo.com
OMG this is the oil of dreams. Made from 1000 roses, the high-end facial oil sadly comes at a high-end price. That said, in my humble opinion it is worth every last penny. The Elixir works little miracles on your skin by smoothing, evening tone and rejuvenating to reveal a beautifully radiant complexion. Yes, it may be pricey, but a little goes a long way. This is one of those must-have products of which you will never want to run out. To give you an idea, I used my bottle every evening and it lasted for almost a year – until the week whereby I held it upside down without the pipette every day in the vain hope a drop may still be left (I know, a tad sad, but you do what you have to). My advice is if you want to buy an investment facial oil – this should be at the top of the list.
