Springing into beauty action

It’s no shock that I’m obsessed with Spring – i mean after months of the cold who isn’t right? I’m definately done with Winter and every now and then Paris teases us with a warm day reminding me what to look forward to! We may still be a few weeks away but I’m already in the Spring mood, and a very red one at that. These are the beauty products helping my frame of mind along… OPI nail lacquer in Red my Fortune Cookie: There are nothing like short red nails to enliven an outfit, not that I reserve this colour only for the hotter months, in fact, I’ll choose this colour any time of year. It just feels more fitting when I can match it to my wardrobe. Clarins Eau des Jardins: The perfect scent for hot weather, and as the name implies, the fragrance reminds me of a spring garden.  Created with essential oils and dry oils – although the fragrance is not at all oily – it leaves the skin feeling more moisturised which adds extra skin care benefits. A real mix …

January’s SOS Beauty products

I’m literally covered from head to toe. Beanie, top, sweater, scarf, coat, gloves, socks… hardly an inch of my skin shows, but it’s thirsty for love, care and hydration. These are what I’m using at the moment to moisturise, hydrate, illuminate and prime my skin: Shu uemura depsea water lavender mist:  This morning I woke up to My 4-year-old telling me how lovely I smell, all due to this product! With eight herbal aromas this fine mist leaves the skin feeling hydrated, plus it smells so lovely and fresh. I use it as a toner or just before going to bed – even makes your jimjams smell good! Benefit speed brow: Colours and sets brows in less than 5 seconds. Really, it’s that quick! Dermalogica daily microfoliant: I love this microfoliant, and have used it for years. It’s a powder, add water and you’ve got a gentle exfoliant that removes all the days make-up and city grime. Estée Lauder enlighten even skin stone correcting cream: We’ve heard of BB, CC, DD creams – well this is the …

All my favourites to primp & prime…

I’ve got less time while juggling all the other stuff along with kids, so this is the stuff that sits in my bathroom cupboard to make it easy, fast and of course, pretty. Lancôme Soleil Bronzer – it’s a sun BB cream. Pretty much a 30 SPF sunscreen, moisturizer and light foundation all in one. Easy! I love it because it doesn’t flake like some others do and it leaves the skin protected and glowing. Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt cologne – I can’t say I’m a fan of all the Jo Malone Scents, I do find some of them a little “linen spray-ish” (Febreez jumps to mind!) for my liking but this new fragrance is the perfect mix of light with an edge. I love it so much I got the big one and two travel size ones. Clarins Shimmer Body Oil – I had orgionally bought this at the beginning of summer, imagining hot beachy evenings, my tanned body glowing with a glittering radiance, which did work of course. But I’m …
