April's Beauty Bulletin

Friday, 19 April 2013

Each month I will be writing a beauty bulletin of my top picked products of the month and I'll be publishing this both on The Beauty Room and Metro Online. There are so so many products to choose from I figured it’s a good idea to separate the good stuff from the bad and report my results on here especially for you.

Pretty spring time nails- Sporting spring seasoned nails is something I've quite literally been dying to do! So when Chanel launched the new spring/ summer shades I was more than excited to get painting!  My favorite shade being Starlet due to it’s subtle salmony pink shade.

Fresh face- Spring time is all about embracing a fresh and glowing complexion and so when I tried Clarins brand new Skin Perfecting BB Cream I was not only surprised with the results as I’ve never been a huge fan of BB Creams but I’ve officially included it within my basic makeup kit. I’ve actually replaced my foundation with my Clarins BB Cream and have noticed a fresher, more naturally glowing complexion…perfect for summer preparation.
Spring scent- Fleur de Figuier by Roger & Gallet has been my latest fragrance addiction, you have to smell it to understand what I mean. Full of freshness, sweetness and musk it’s the perfect spring time scent.
Unleash your radiance - Radiance boosting face serum by Bare Skin Beauty delivers a powerful boast of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids to the cell renewal layer of the skin, encouraging collagen and elastin production- which basically means your complexion will be super radiant, glowing and as beautiful as possible. Use this before you go to bed at night, or be a beauty scientist yourself and add a few drops to your moisturiser for added gorgeousness.
Complete cover- As we start to slightly make changes to our spring time makeup bag we must also take concealer into consideration. We don’t want something too heavy and paste like as the weather gets warmer. What we want and need is Benefit’s solution to summertime concealing…Fake Up. This vitamin E enriched, super hydrating concealer not only comes in a handy lipstick style compact, making it perfect to pop in your handbag but it delivers fantastic coverage and feels so moisturising!
Relax and unwind- Burn a luxuriously special Cire Trudon Candle to truly relax, unwind and recharge your batteries after a stressful day in the city. I recommend investing in ‘Mademoiselle De La Valliere’ for a feminine floral scent to soothe the soul and create true ambiance in your living space and mind.
Prepare those pins- Aesop’s Moroccan Neroli shaving serum is created to deliver the ‘perfect shave’ as the botanical formulation offers maximum slip texture- just what we need for perfectly groomed pins this spring. I for one haven’t used a shaving product quite as good as this one, very impressed with Aesop…thumbs up!
Bronzed beauty- This award winning shimmer brick compact by Bobbi Brown gives us the most ideal balance of bronzer and highlighted shimmer that we all crave as soon as the sun starts to shine. This deep bronzed brush on powder works incredibly well as a contouring essential- plus each strip of powder can we individually used as eyeshadows! Multipurpose makeup.
Pro hands- Take a visit to Pro Hands beauty salon in Acton for extra, extra special treatment in the form of an ‘Avatar Facial’ yes you heard it right! This full body stimulates and heightens all 5 senses making you feel totally rejuvenated and recharged…something we all need once in a while.
