[productsample/affiliate] This is such a beautiful, enjoyable collection from Lancome that keeps the user experience at the forefront. There’s a delicate rose scent that’s so pretty that you’re instantly uplifted when you spritz the mist (if you don’t like rose, run for the hills!) and the mask absolutely fits the brief of cooler, smoother skin.
(I’m still using my iPhone camera and hating these pictures so sorry in advance… new one should be here by Thursday latest). Perhaps most importantly about the Lancome Rose Milk Mist is that you can spritz it over make up and it won’t leave you a runny mess. It’s a hydrating formula using hyaluronic acid, rose water, acacia honey and sweet almond oil. You need to shake the bottle before you spritz and I’m pleased to report that it’s a lovely, fine mist and not a squirt as some mists are. You can also use it to tone your skin before you apply make up, but I’m not sure I’d bother – to me, it’s a day or night time refresher, even better from the fridge. At £25, it’s treat territory but if you’re a rose fan, you’ll relish every single drop.
The Rose Sorbet Cryo-Mask is actually where I’d place my money – it’s genuinely such a beautifully cooling skin treat that anyone with a hot and bothered complexion will really feel a benefit. It’s a pink coloured sorbet texture; quite thick and just short of granular, again with a delicate rose scent. There is a purifying element to this so it’s great for oily skin – the formula uses salicylic acid to help to reduce the appearance of pores (yes, that’s straight from the press release and I cannot say I saw any discernible difference but in fairness I’ve only used it twice) as well as rose water. It’s a delight to use and my skin was definitely more perky – and wonderfully cooled – after use. It’s also £25.
The Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar
The SpaceNK Advent calendar is almost here, pre-order for shipment on the 15th October with beauty gifts, worth over £700, from La Mer, Augustinus Bader, Rose Inc and more.
I was fully expecting to suggest that the Tonique is the product you can leave aside but it too is just lovely. It’s not new but makes a good addition if you’re thinking of swapping up your routine for something rose fuelled. The texture is quite thick – like a pink single cream perhaps – and uses acacia honey and sweet almond oil as key ingredients. It’s handy to have if you’re experiencing skin tightness because you slosh a bit onto a cotton pad and press it to your cheeks and there’s an immediate soothing sensation. It’s £26.
So, the upshot here is this collection truly feels like all the treats – it just goes to show that form is as important as functionality. The products are very enjoyable to use with sensory elements in terms of texture and fragrance that elevate each one. They’re at various places but I’ve linked to John Lewis HERE.
