I’m super excited to announce that I will be joining Lookfantastic as a beauty ambassador again through The Beauty Set in 2018! It was a great year in 2017 with lots of amazing new launches and I’m back in action again with all the amazingness on Lookfantastic this month including a brand from Iceland (the country) that I’ve been wanting to try forever. So here we go!
I have to say, being the skincare geek that I truly am, I was really excited to receive Bioeffect this month from Lookfantastic. This is a really exciting brand, using cutting-edge science and ground-breaking techniques to make some pretty powerful skincare products. Bioeffect was created by three geneticists who bio-engineered a plant-based replica of EGF, a human protein, in barley. About 30% of Icelandic women now use this product and the results are said to be amazing. It isn’t cheap but considering 1/3 of the population of Icelandic women uses this then that’s pretty compelling. This serum hydrates and works on targeting fine lines – could this be the miracle we’ve all been waiting for?
Ugh pollution. I swear it has destroyed my skin and has certainly been the number one factor in my skin’s ageing since I moved to London with an onset of pigmentation and spot problems. This Bioeffect EGF 2a Daily Treatment address those exact issues and contain the EGF protein I’ve just mentioned above, along with Ferulic and Azelaic acids which are two strong antioxidants that protect skin from the harmful effects of the environment.
So, if you feel like your skin has been at the whim of your lifestyle lately, these products are worth a closer look. This is a 2-step programme where you apply Step 1 to a clean face in the morning, wait for it to absorb and then apply Step 2. You then need to wait 3 to 5 minutes before applying anything else. Again this is another product from Bioeffect with compelling published results so it’s certainly worth a try if you feel like your skin has had a bit too much and you really want to get down and dirty in the fight against ageing.
Oh, I love a refreshing facial mist and this is one that hydrates, plumps and glows all in one! If you haven’t tried any of renowned London facialist Emma Hardie’s products before you are in for a treat. This one is perfect for the desk or to spritz on the skin during a long-haul flight. I’m a serial facial spritzer and I like to have one on the go with me everywhere. This one contains Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid (to plump) and Velvet Flower and Wild Watermint. It also helps protect against environmental aggressors too by creating a protective layer over the skin. And one more thing? It also has invisible colour correctors. Yes, some things do really do it all.
I swear that vegan lipstick keeps getting better and better and this new one in from Neek, an Australian organic brand, is just lovely. It’s not drying on the lips (contains Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and antioxidant Vitamin E) and I love the colour – perfect pink for everyday!
Benefit Cosmetics Case
I love this Benefit Cosmetics Case that came with this haul as well – it’s also got a separate compartment at the bottom if you want to separate say, your skincare from your make-up. This will definitely be going with me on my next trip!
Girl, I have a confession. I cannot resist a sheet mask. Honestly since I’ve been travelling to South Korea for the past 10 years or so I’ve been using them religiously! This Starskin Set has four amazing masks in it as well.
The first one is my favourite and that is the Starskin After Party Mask – the perfect mask for when your skin is feeling dull and tired. It contains 30ml of serum so it’s a serious drink for the skin with Coconut Juice, Vitamin C, Cowslip, Mallow Extract and Gentian Root. I’m about to go put this on right now…
The set also contains the Starskin Gold Mask which I love and contains Evening Primrose to nourish and soften as well as pure Colloidal Gold to reduce the appearance of fine lines. This really is a VIP mask! I also love the Starskin Foaming Peeling Perfection Puff which is fabulous at brightening and exfoliating the skin. My skin felt super smooth after! And last but certainly not least is the Starskin Juicelab® Razzle Dazzle Power C+ Booster Face Mask which contains a Booster Mask that is embedded with freeze dried 75% Vitamin C dots which activate when combined with the separate sachet of serum. Your skin will never look better!
Have you ever tried a sheet mask? Let me know!
