Dr Hauschka Summer Impressions Make Up Palette in Cool Breeze. Created exclusively for London Fashion Week, this palette is pretty much all you need for the new season’s beauty looks. Warm-toned brown and champagne shades, sheer rose and soft-red lip colours and a black kajal liner, all offset by a shot of this season’s hottest shade, turquoise. Spring in a palette. www.drhauschka.co.uk
Tigi Catwalk Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo. After 10 years of use I have yet to be lured away from my daily Batiste habit. That is until I tried Tigi’s dry shampoo offering. Not only does it soak up any remnant of oil or excessive product whilst creating a clean, matte finish, it refreshes hair with the most delightful scent (probably from the blend of rose and sandalwood that helps to condition) and best of all, there’s not a trace of white-talc to be seen! www.catwalkbytigi.com
Balance Me Skin Bright Hydrating Face Mist. We’re huge fans of Balance Me, (the rose otto hand cream is a beauty desk staple) the brand whose philosophy ‘beauty that works naturally’ is infused into each and every one of their skin-balancing products. So this was a delight to sample. A soft, subtle scent, and fine mist that is instantly refreshing and moisturising. A quick spritz post or pre makeup or as a skin pick-me-up will prevent dehydration and help make up to look freshly applied even after a long day in the office. We can see this becoming a handbag must-have. www.balanceme.co.uk
Yardley Royal English Daisy. Always partial to a new hand treatment (you can never really have enough in our temperamental British climate), Yardley’s Royal English Daisy hand and nail cream is helping us to segue into spring. The fresh daisy scent combined with energising notes of fresh green leaves and apple imparts a hint of sunshine onto the skin. www.yardleylondon.co.uk
Elemis Skin Glow Exfoliating Face Wash. This deep-pore action cleanser buffs away dry skin with a combination of cherry powder and jojoba beads for polished, refined and glowing new season skin. www.elemis.com
Alterna Caviar Repair Re-Texturising Protein Cream. A seriously restorative leave-in conditioning treatment that uses ‘strand-building proteins’ to help re-texturise and repair all manner of coarse, porous, sensitised and damaged tresses. It’s the perfect antidote to fashion week hair and locks that are worse-for-wear after the cold-snap. Slather on for smooth, soft, transformed and protected hair.
