Women have been masking for years and I believe that using face masks, once or twice a week, depending on your skin needs, is like having a mini-facial in the privacy of your own home. One of the latest
Well, there are three shades advertised but only two were released and one is already sold out. I got mine in No.1 and it looks crazily pink, yet when you apply it it glides on smoothly, gives you a ‘blushing bride’ look, smells delicious and stays put, like its sister foundation. It works really well in hot weathers, so I would say a great addition to your make-up bag before you go on your holiday.
The second product that I didn’t plan to buy but in the end couldn’t resist is by Kiehl’s and it is part of their Creme de Corps range. It is called Soy Milk & Honey Body Polish and you just have to smell it to know that you have to have it on your shower shelf. This formulation contains Shea and Jojoba butters plus Sweet Almond Oil that is blended with ground Luffa fruit. The said combination will not only exfoliate your skin but nurture it too, because it contains pure honey and soy milk protein. I initially tried it on my hand and my girlfriend’s son has been trying to kiss my hand since then-what more can a girl want?
The new addition to my beauty shelf is called Acai Damage-Repairing Serum and the inscription on the 50ml bottle (£36) states that the ‘concentrated formula penetrates skin’s surface to repair the effects of visible damage due to external stressors’. I have only been using it for three or four days but my skin seems to be more even and a little softer to the touch and my nose loves the serum’s delicate smell. I put it on my skin after cleansing and then whoosh to have my breakfast. After that I get on with the rest of my skincare routine (moisturiser, concealer, touch of foundation, blusher) and my face seems to be liking it.
Another word on Kiehl’s: people working at their King’s road store are knowledgeable about the products and I got some samples and a 125ml bottle of kid’s face & body sunscreen spray (the best I have come across in the last few years) for free. Staff working at the Peter Jones Kiehl’s counter also seem lovely & beyond helpful. Bear that in mind when you go shopping.
