First up this week is this lovely new peel product, Lemon Strip Flash Peel, from Ole Henriksen, and as luck would have it, I tried it this morning. Calling it a peel is too strong a word; it is more a complexion refiner and feels far more gentle on the skin than other ‘peely’ products that I have used. I was really impressed with it – it comes with a little brush to paint the product onto you skin so you end up using it quite sparingly – you just don’t need a thick layer for the lactic, glycolic and fruit acids to do their work. The result on my skin was a considerably brighter complexion and very soft skin. I really liked it and would highly recommend. It’s £35 HERE.
If you aren’t totally over the BB thing, then I wanted to flag up two new ones. One from Dior, and one from Bourjois. The Dior Hydralife BB was a firm favourite with me and while I haven’t tried the DiorSkin version yet, it’s a lighter version with a ‘rosy glow’ effect and has SPF10. I’d recommend this for those who like a light coverage and a glowy look. It’s £30, HERE. The Bourjois Compact BB Cream Foundation, £11.99 HERE, is higher on coverage and pretty hydrating for a cream compact. It’s got SPF20 and is very good value.
I swatched Estee Lauder Paint Pots a while ago HERE and absolutely love them; intense, creamy and long-lasting. No complaints! They’re £19 and Sinister is my top recommend for dark, smoked eyes. Find them HERE.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
Well, you’ll either love or loathe these gummy bear soaps – I haven’t tested but rather have my eye on the Pina Colada ‘flavour’. They’re £6 HERE
I have heard nothing but good things about this new women’s fragrance from Lacoste, Eau de Lacoste. Whenever I think of Lacoste I think of the green crocodile and tennis, but Eau de Lacoste couldn’t be further away from that image. It’s a feminine fruity-floral that looks so pretty and if you are tired of winter, could be the perfect antidote. It’s from £28.05 HERE.
This is such a cutie; I posted on it earlier this week and now it’s live on the M&S site for £6 HERE
