Beauty Notes: Radiant Skin

October 11

Moisturizer: Dr Hauschka Rose day cream

For a face moisturiser, this is an investment but I highly recommend it for women that have sensitive skin yet still want something rich. I like this more during the cooler months, when my skin needs major hydration. Make up artist, Gucci Westman likes using it on all her models backstage to give them radiant skin before applying make up. It includes ingredients such as Shea butter, rose petal wax and avocado oil to protect and add moisture, and marshmallow to soothe redness.

CC Cream: YSL Forever Light Creator CC Creme

This Summer, all I’ve been wearing is CC cream, and especially loving this one by YSL in addition to my other favourite by Bourjous. I love how it instantly lights up the face – all I needed was a swipe of bronzer and a lip balm and I was good to go. Light weight with a sun protection of SPF 35 – perfect for day. It also is a colour corrector with decent coverage that adds radiance. I love the one in ‘Apricot’.

Elixir: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery concentrate

This cult product from Kiehl’s is a lightweight oil – an elixir of pure essential oils and botanicals that helps restore and replenish the skin whilst you’re sleeping. You only need to apply a bit on the skin at night and the face feels incredibly hydrated by morning, not to mention the lavender scent being a great way to relax your nerves as well as a deep sleep. (PS it It has won the ‘Best night treatment’ title numerously)

Tinted Moisturiser: Jouer luminizing moisture tint

I’ve only recently started using Jouer products and love their moisture tint – having won an Allure award, that’s no surprise. Incredibly lightweight and oil-free, it feels like nothing on the skin yet helps even out perfections giving you coverage as well as a dewy finish thanks to the ingredients of antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Ginseng, Gingko Biloba leaf extract. To top it off, it also protects you from the sun with SPF20.

Glow Booster: Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster

This would have to be one of the most awaited beauty products of the year, and I love all things Clarins so couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! A tiny bottle filled with oil that can be mixed with any lotion, face cream, sunscreen… you name it to give you a bronzed glow. No need to update your regular beauty products by buying new ones as this booster turns them into Summer products!

Serum: Philosophy Time in a bottle Daily Age Defying serum

If you suffer from scars on the face and want to avoid future ones – there has been a lot of buzz around this Philosphy serum, which is packed with Vitamin C. Quite pricy, but this shake to activate skincare product includes enzymes and Vitamin C that help restore damaged skin before it becomes visible on the skin.
