It’s always a bit sad to squeeze the absolute last bit of product from a favourite beauty item. We’ve all tried to get just one more application out of a good to the last drop product. This Spring, I’ve discovered some real winners that have become hero products in my beauty routine. Good til the end, just like these roses.
Skincare has been a big focus for many over the last few weeks. I’ve been diligent about cleansing my skin, and applying various serums and moisturizers. It has really helped make skin look and feel healthy and glowing, especially as we move into summer.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
I’m a big fan of Fresh Beauty, and this Soy Face Cleanser is one of their best selling products. It’s a pH-balanced cleanser that gently removes makeup without aggravating your skin and eyes. After using this cleanser, your face will feel toned and balanced. The consistency is a light weight gel, with ingredients like cucumber extract to calm the skin, rosewater and amino acid rich soy proteins. It’s free from sulfates and parabens, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
Elizabeth Arden Capsules
I love these Vitamin C capsules! Each one contains the perfect daily dose of vitamin C oil to brighten and moisturize the skin. I use one capsule after my bath every evening, and it’s so refreshing. It’s a luxurious, lightweight dry oil serum that combines two powerhouse ingredients: Vitamin C for brightening, and ceramides to help prevent moisture loss. Think of it as instant brightening dose for your face. I always have a little bit of oil left over, which is perfect to moisturize your hands after.
Fresh Black Tea Facial Treatment
Another Fresh favourite – this anti pollution treatment essence is rich in antioxidants kombucha, which helps create smoother skin. It contains a very gentle Hyaluronic Acid, which helps maintain moisture. I apply this in the morning after I wash my face, before I apply moisturizer or any makeup.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Rich Day Cream
I’ve used the day and night cream from Guerlain’s Abeille Royale Rich collection and I loved both. The day cream featured here has a rich and silky formula that reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains Vitamin C, which is made with Guerlain Exclusive Royal Jelly. This provides exceptional nutrients and is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins. You’ll often notice bees on the packaging of Guerlain products. Here the bee is featured on the top of the gold lid, as it contains Black Bee Honey that helps nurtures the skin. Even though this packaging is very luxurious, it’s completely recyclable, with an eco-design made of 90 percent recycled glass.
MAKE UP FAVOURITES
I’ve barely worn makeup the past few weeks, and my skin is so happy for it. As my Zoom call schedule increases, I’ve been reintroducing some favourite products for a camera ready, fresh face look.
Guerlain L’Essential Glow Foundation
Guerlain creates incredible skincare, and their makeup is fantastic too. Their L’Essentiel Glow Foundation is buildable, so you can create light to medium coverage depending on what look you want. The finish creates glowing skin that is able to breathe, so it’s perfect for warmer weather wear.
Wonderglow by Charlotte Tilbury
I LOVE Wonderglow by Charlotte Tilbury. This has been a staple in my make up bag since it launched. It’s the perfect no make up highlighter because it has such a soft finish. I often will wear it alone, or over foundation. It gives you a highlighted glow without any tell tale make up lines.
Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick
I always apply a bit of lipstick before a video call. Mainly because lipstick is not conducive to wearing a face mask, and I’m such a lipstick girl! I have quite the collection, but my Charlotte Tilbury ones are my go to favourite. They are high in pigment and have a super creamy finish. I’m excited to break out some brighter colours for summer (Colour Featured is Duchess)
Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil
Benefit leads the pack when it comes to eyebrow products. Their Precisely My Brow Pencil is one of my favourites. It creates ultra fine hair like lines to mimic your natural eyebrow hair. It’s smudge proof and long lasting, with a 12-hour waterproof formula. This will ensure your brows stay perfectly in place no matter what summer activity you’re enjoying. Bring on the sunshine!
