THE BEAUTY HOTLIST – FEBRUARY
A new month means new beauty treats, right? These are the best in beauty buys we’ve tried and tested this month and we think you’ll love them as much as we do – thank us later!
THALGO EXPRESS MAKE UP REMOVER
Even the most stubborn of mascaras will be easily removed with this gentle lotion. Made with a powerful moisturising emollient, it dissolves all traces of make-up with ease, and is even suitable for contact lens wearers!
EUCERIN LIP BALM
We’ve searched high and low for the perfect lipbalm – but we don’t think much beats this one! Its clinically proven formula, which includes licorice extract, relieves and soothes even the driest of pouts.
SENSPA ONE MINUTE RADIANCE MASK
Unveil radiance in just one minute with this speedy mask. Herbal extracts – including sugar cane, sugar maple and orange – are combined to cleanse, exfoliate and refine skin.
ST TROPEZ SELF TAN EXPRESS MOUSSE
This clever tan is up there with our absolute favourites. You get to choose the depth of your colour – leaving it on for one, two or three hours depending on how tanned you wish to be. What’s more, once the guide colour has been wash, it continues to develop, meaning no more tan-stained sheets! Talk about a life-changer.
JANJIRA LIME & GINGER MASSAGE OIL
Create the feel of a spa from the comfort of your home with this gorgeous treat. Blending together sunflower, sweet almond, lime and ginger; this indulgent oil will soften skin, relieve stress and leave you with deliciously scented skin.
SEASCAPE AWAKE OIL
If you struggle with early morning, this is ideal. It uses Jersey Eucalyptus to stimulate the body, while lime and lavender help to energise and refresh you as dawn breaks. Plus it leaves skin wonderfully smooth.
FAKE BAKE DOLCE DREAMS BON BON BODY FIZZ
For a cooling shower gel, try this yummy-smelling fruity number from Fake Bake. Its coconut-enriched formula gently crackles on to skin, leaving it smooth, clean and refreshed.
NAILS INC BACK TO LIFE RECOVERY TREATMENT & BASE COAT
If you’ve been piling on the polish and those poor nails are in some dire need of TLC, this replenishing formula is infused with five nourishing oils. The hint of a tint shade also gives a healthy sheen.
RODIAL SUPER ACIDS AZELAIC ACID SERUM
Reducing wrinkles, pores and dullness, this is pretty much good skin in a bottle. Non-abrasive exfoliators, lactic acid and purifying azelaic work to refine skin, leaving it clearer, brighter and younger-looking.
ESTEE LAUDER NEW DIMENSIONS SHAPE & FILL EXPERT SERUM
Correct sagging skin with this advanced formula. Using Estée Lauder’s pro-collagen complex, it helps to define facial contours, adding definition to cheeks and jawline. What’s more, complexions will look plumper and tones more radiant.
DERMALOGICA CHARCOAL MASK
Brighten up dull skin with this magic formula from Dermalogica. Combining activated charcoal with sulfur, it helps to erase skin’s impurities and promote cell turnover for a radiant complexion.
NEOM NOURISH BREATHE & SLEEP HAND LOTION
You should always apply hand cream just before you go to sleep, which is why this pre-bed lotion is always on our bedside table. Neom’s tranquil blend of lavender, sweet basil, jasmine and essential oils, will relax and prepare you for a peaceful sleep.
INGENIOUS BEAUTY ULTIMATE COLLOGEN CAPSULES
Helping to replenish collagen and hyaluronic acid in the body; this oral form of skincare works to correct damage caused by sunlight and pollution. Its array of natural ingredients repairs skin and can even reverse the effects of UVA rays.
RODIAL SNAKE EYE CREAM O2
Wrinkly peepers will be a thing of the past with this concoction of powerful ingredients. It uses Syn-ake Dipeptide, which “freezes” muscle contractions for smoother, line-free skin. As well as tackling fine lines, it helps to reduce dark circles and de-puff your eyes.
ESTEÉ LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR CONCENTRATED POWERFOIL MASK
Sheet masks are hotter than ever in the beauty world and this award-winning one is hot on our list. Its foil-backed structure creates a protective barrier, which in turn allows the advanced formulate to work deeper into the skin. Repairing and revitalising skin, your complexion will be fresher, clearer and brighter.
