Caudalie, Lancome, Erborian and more.
Whether you’re browsing online, searching for beauty products on Sephora’s shelves or checking on Instagram what your favourite celebrities swear by. It’s easy to find yourself overloaded by all this information. Don’t worry, I have you covered. Especially with the new seasons coming up. As much as we like to do a Spring cleaning in the house we also like to do it in our beauty cabinets. Ditching all that doesn’t serve us anymore or is too heavy for warmer months. Whether you’re on the hunt for skincare that is going to revolutionize your routine or makeup that will make you look like from the magazine cover, we got you covered.
I spent time testing the latest products on the market in order to help you decide. Each beauty brand prepared its launches for the upcoming season and it takes time to find the new must-have among so many beautiful jars, bottles and boxes. I am confident this list will help you to make choices, but also make visible changes on your face and add to your self-care and self-love routines.
1.Caudalie – Premier Cru, The Cream
This cream is a revolution itself. Based on the latest discoveries in genetics by Caudalie’s research partner Dr David Sinclair. He has discovered the enzyme named TET that enables skin ageing to be reversed. Honokiol an active ingredient from Magnolia is boosting the TET enzyme. This combination is so powerful that it fights against 8 signs of ageing: Deep wrinkles, fine lines, firmness, volume, elasticity, dark spots, hydration and radiance. It’s too good to be true? Not at all. I tested this cream and the results were surprising. Skin looked younger, immediately tightened and glowing. Caudalie commitment to be eco-friendly is visible in the whole range of products. When cream will be finished Caudalie also offer refills. I love this idea.
2. Erborian- Démaquillant fondant en baume visage et yeux
This make-up remover has an effectiveness of an oil and the comforting softness of a balm. Is enriched with Centella Asiatica, which recently is a very popular super-ingredient from Korea. CENTELLA CLEANSING BALM effectively removes make-up while leaving the skin feeling soft and comfortable. Using this balm is one of my favourite parts of my night routine. I also like to do a short self-massage before rinsing it with the water.
3. Elemis- Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads
British brand Elemis always delivers high-quality products and this time it didn’t disappoint me either. On the contrary. These pads are now part of my morning and night routine. They are super easy to be used and give a new level to skincare. Pads are gentle yet effective. They deliver a measured dose of patented^ Tri-Enzyme Technology for smoother-looking skin. Formulated with Lactic Acid and Probiotic Ferment Complex, they are clinically proven to accelerate skin’s natural cell turnover in 28 days. They help to reduce the look of dark spots, pores and uneven skin texture, leaving the skin looking significantly smoother and brighter.
4. Lancôme – Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum
This serum represents a new era of high-performance cosmetics. It has a concentration of unique ingredients that previously were considered impossible to combine together. It is: Hyaluronic Acid, C+Niacinamide and Ferulic Acid. The serum is extremely effective and corrects volume loss, wrinkles and dark spots. After using it for one week I have already noticed an overall skin improvement. After 2 weeks my skin was more even and dark spots less visible and skin more plumped and lifted. I also must say that packaging plays a great role in the overall experience. Lancome is a pioneer of a new high-tech pack design. Each active ingredient is held within separate chambers that protect them
from air, light and impurities.
5. Erborian – SUPER BB CREAM
The goal of creators behind the new BB cream was for women to: REGAIN CONFIDENCE IN THE SKIN. Their mission is to show us that our skin is more beautiful than we think and we don’t need to cover it all up. I am a fan of CC and BB cream by Erborian for a couple of years now and to be honest I didn’t think that the new BB cream can be any better. Gosh, I was wrong. SUPER BB CREAM is the best I have used so far. Skin looks like after using an Instagram filter. Younger, fresher, with a beautiful glow. Cream offers coverage, conceal spots, dark spots and blemishes, while at the same time giving the skin the comfort it needs. It has mineral UV filters and promises visible fewer imperfections on the skin after 28 days. The key ingredient is a white Ginseng Complex, which is the Korean active ingredient par excellence, with smoothing and moisturizing properties. Skin looks fresh all day and if you like this glowy finish you will skin any foundation for this SUPER BB CREAM.
6. Clarins- Lip Comfort Oil
Would you like lips to look shiny and soft? Then I have good news if you love Clarins Lip Comfort Oils. They have just launched 4 new colours to the Lip Comfort Oil range. This product is a fusion between skincare and colour. Clarins created 4 new yummy colours, which are: Honey, Raspberry, Cherry and Apricot. Lips are nourished thanks to organic jojoba oil, hazelnut and the new ‘star’ ingredient, organic sweetbriar rose oil. I love to use this oil day and night. The shade Honey is ideal to use overnight in order to have nourished and plumped lips in the morning. Raspberry, cherry and apricot are adding colours to the lips, so they are perfect during the day. Apart from the colour products helps supple, softer and smoother lips. Perfect for very kissable lips.
7. Sephora – Pocket Palette Sun Shadows
This is a nice pocket palette that can easily fit into any cosmetic bag and a handbag. It’s a collection of highly pigmented mini-palettes in six sun-inspired wearable shades and three different finishes: matte, shimmer, and metallic. It’s a Noon Lights palette with warm pink tones that reflect the sun’s midday rays. These palettes include a range of wearable neutrals with pops of colour, which easily blend to add depth and accentuate features for a sun-kissed look. Perfect for on-the-go touch-ups or convenient at-home use without breaking the bank.
