BEAUTY BUZZ: February 2012
Moisture: Clarins Daily Energizer Cream Gel
Obsessed with this Clarins moisturizer – I have been looking for a great one… it moisturizes, doesn’t oil up, energizes, comes on smoothly, divine scent, light gel that sinks into the skin, protects sun damage SPF15, hydrates all day, doesn’t clog up pores – what more do we need…
Hair styling: Bumble & Bumble surf spray
I love spraying this on unwashed hair – smells amazing, great for an effortless look, and not heavy on the hair whatsoever.
Soap: ‘Love You’ Soap by Scottish Fine Soaps
I love this! a super sweet present, a great stocking filler. and smells sooo good – I tend to wash my hands every 20 minutes because of the soap. the box is also so cute – perfect to keep accessories and little pieces inside 🙂
Hair Mask: Pantene Pro-V 12hr night therapy
Love this hair mask – great for moisture, soft hair, smells great too! I recommend you apply it whilst sleeping… (you don’t have to shower as it doesn’t grease)
Conditioner: Fekkai Brilliant glossing conditioner
Obsessed with this conditioner… smells amazing (always extra plus points) – includes olive oil, which is great for the hair and gives the perfect & (intense) gloss!
Shampoo: Tresemme Split remedy
Great products in this range if you’re one that has regular split ends in your hair. The leave in conditioner is great too!
Mascara: d.j.v. beautenizer Fiberwig LX
A top-selling mascara brand from Japan that I was recently introduced to by cultbeauty.co.uk. The Japanese definitely know their beauty… DJV mascaras are hi-tech and give a clump free finish, yet add the perfect volume and length (and is much easier to remove than other mascara!) Perfect for a light daytime mascara yet gives the illusion of a night-time one. I am loving the Fiberwig and can’t wait to try their 3D Volume lash mascara!
Available exclusively on cultbeauty.co.uk
Body: Gold Shimmer oil by Omorovicza Budapest
I was recently introduced to great luxurious brand from Budapest and fell in love with this shimmer oil. The oil is super rich, perfect shimmer for the body, and smells great too- perfect to use after shower. It keeps me fresh and gives that golden glow 🙂
Eyebrows: The Body Shop brow kit
I don’t need it for darkening reasons because my eyebrows are super dark anyways… but I love it for filling in the spaces (even tiny spaces make a huge difference when filled) Great compact size to carry around in your bag too 🙂
Foundation: Clinique Anti Blemish Foundation
I stopped using Clinique foundations for a while because the one I used was discontinued but when I was having my skin consultation recently at Clinique – I was introduced to the Anti blemish one… which I have been using for over a month now. Great texture, love the coverage and it doesn’t feel too heavy on my skin.
Scrub: Elemis scrub – Lime and Ginger salt glow AED 316
This is a great scrub for the shower – it smells great, I love how it’s not too greasy, yet is actually great for skin – invigorating, exfoliates well and keeps your skin super soft!
Lips: MAC Korean Candy
moving on from the MAC Impassioned (ok not moving on… as it is still a classic fave!) but I’m loving this for a bright alternative! The color is a bright colar pink that looks great with a tee and jeans or with a dress for a night out!
Concealer: Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit
I have had numerous people recommend Bobbi Brown’s concealer (I love recommendations!) and decided to go for it and try it out for myself. The concealer is actually quite creamy, but has great coverage and keeps your skin looking dewy and flawless – I also love the finishing powder that comes with it that blots up the oil from the cream, gives you a great finish as well as brightens your under eye – highly recommended!
Body Cream: Elie Saab Le Parfum body cream
As mentioned in my beauty buzz feature a few months ago – I am obsessed with Elie Saab’s perfume… So I was excited to try out the body cream that just came out. The cream is quite rich, which is great for moisturizing and the Elie Saab fragrance stays on all day – yay!
Face: Benefit Sun beam
you must already know, I love anything bronzed and anything that illuminates! I recently started using Benefit’s sun beam illuminator which I am loving. super easy to apply – I just dab some on my hand with the brush and ended up blending it on my cheekbones with my bronzer – gives you a great dewy bronzed highlight.
Nails: Dolce & Gabbana
It’s still freezing in London… which means it calls for dark nails. I am loving Dolce’s peacock nailpolish – it’s a dual color – with a black tone under some lights and a dark green/blue tone under other lights – super cool!
