BEAUTY BUZZ: March 2012

March 26

Moisture: Clinique moisture surge
If you’re looking for a great moisturizer – look this way. This brand new one by Clinique is great for extended thirst relief, hydration,and if you’re one that has sensitive skin – this is unfragranced.

Hair: Bumble & Bumble coco creme range
A beauty product with great smell always wins for me… so that is a plus. 2nd? this collection gives my hair the perfect moisture and leaves it super soft.

Bronzer: VS Victorias Secret Baked mineral bronzing powder in Goddess
I must say I was just recently introduced to Victorias Secret’s own professional make up line. This bronzer is amazing. great bronze, mineral powder, and super long lasting. definitely a top bronzer!

Body: The Body shop Bronze shimmer oil
Now that it is pretty much Spring here in London, and the arms & legs are out – I love putting on some of this oil by the Body shop – smells like summer, and gives you the perfect summer shimmer bronze glow!

Scrub: Omorovicza Body Buffing Balm
This just smells so amazing – I’m a sucker for orange blossom. It makes my skin super soft  with the sea salt, hungarian mud, it cleanses and detoxifies and stimulates circulation. Definitely one to use several times a week!

Concealer: Clinique Airbrush
Clinique is a winner this month… with three mentions in this months beauty buzz. I was introduced to their airbrush concealer and I love. Perfect coverage, gives you a perfect airbrush look and completely brightens the under eye. hello 8 hours of sleep!

Oil: Elemis Sp@home Japanese Camellia Oil Blend: AED 225
I love all round oil blends that you can use everywhere to nourish – I love this one by Elemis that has a great scent too – Japanese Camelia flower blended with sweet almond oil! great for nail cuticles and if any of you are pregnant – this is great for stretch marks.

Nails: Orly in Bon Bon
The color is a lovely grey-purple taupe shade – a favorite this month!

Foundation: Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen wow
This really does what it says. Gives you a wow flawless look, and it is so light – it is pretty much oxygen for the skin. The foundation is oil free (dislike foundations that cake up and oil up the skin), spf 25 (a double plus! spf in make up is super important),  brightening and luminous (exactly what you need when you don’t get enough sleep!) Personally, I love the HONEY shade.

Tattoo: Fake Tattoos star
Remember those tattoos you used to play with when you were younger? Had some fun with them by fake tattoos this month. easy, fun, temporary.

Lips: Clinique Chubby stick
Back to clinique! This has got to be my top favorite Clinique product of the year – The chubby sticks! lipbalm/lipgloss/light lipstick in one in amazing colors – Personally a fan of the woppin watermelon shade.

Illuminator: St Tropez skin illuminator
I love me some illuminators. I tend to make sure I’m introduced to an amazing one every month and this is my favorite at the moment. St Tropez are great with giving the perfect glow but I love this light dewy one. I love the rose shade, which gives this light pink shimmer shade (I tend to use with a foundation brush) It also smells amazing.

Eyebrows: La-tweez
I was recently introduced to this plucker – which is perfect to throw in the handbag (you never know whenever you might need a tweezer…) but what I love most about this is the fact that the grip is great when pulling hair (most tweezers lack this) and the light shows every single strand of hair that some bright lightings don’t even show. Oh and there is a swarovski crystal on the public which just adds that perfect glam touch 🙂 available from Boots, House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Cleanser: DHC Deep cleansing oil
I’m not usually a fan of oil cleansers, but this one is just great. It dissolves make up and dirt – your skin ends up feeling squeeky clean and moisturized. However, I do limit using this to 2 times a week (when I’ve got the most make up) to avoid greasy skin!

Night treatment: Phyto Paris Secret De Nuit
Being someone that is always super tight on time, I love using products that work whilst I’m sleeping. This new product from phyto is great to apply on the ends before bed to give your hair the hydration and radiant glow it needs. The product includes Macadamia oil and Milk thistle fruit extraction (milk thistle is great in beauty products!) a plus? doesn’t stain the pillow.
