Maybe I'm getting older, maybe it's the fact I don't get to go to any magazine office beauty sales anymore (very sad) - but I'm really starting to use and appreciate good beauty products, now. I am actually using eye cream and investing in serums. So thought I'd share my current favourites:
|Antipodes gentle cream cleanser, from Feel Unique|
I only found out about this brand recently and I am hooked. Admittedly, I first feel for the packaging but I am now addicted to its natural ingredients, which just seem to work on my skin.
These two products are my daily evening ritual:
|Skin-brightening serum and avocado pear night cream, both Antipodes|
|A little bit of harmless optimism goes a long way...an old Markus Lupfer London Fashion Week ticket I had framed|
|Vichy LiftActiv Advanced Filler|
|Eve Lom cleanser|
The mother of all cleansers, this smells and feels fantastic, and using the muslin cloth feels like it is really deep cleaning. Well worth the price.Eve Lom has recently launched make-up, too. I highly recommend the tinted moisturiser (as I hate wearing foundation) - it glides on, lasts all day and doesn't feel like make-up at all.
|Darphin cleansng water|
|From L-R: The White Company 'Cassis' (part of a set of 4 minis). Nadia Narain 'Love' (part of a set of 5 minis). Nathalie Bond Organics 'True Lavender'|
|Aveda Dry Remedy shampoo and conditioner|
And when guests come round? I bring out the Bigelow:
|Bigelow Rosemary + Mint handwash, £14, Liberty|
