Loccitane skin perfecting serum, £42


Considering the price of this serum, it took me a while to finally splash out on this wondrous little product.
At £42 it seemed a little bit steep, but turned out to be worth it all the while.
This skin perfecting serum is the perfect product for those looking for fresher, smoother skin without the help of  makeup.
As well as reducing the size of pores and making the skin feel silky smooth, it also minimises redness and makes the skin look velvety soft in seconds.
A must-have for those looking to wake up looking gorgeous in the morning.

Kalme Undercoat, £9.95

Kalme undercoat

The overload of heavy cosmetics, new beauty products and perfumes over party season can leave skin over-sensitive, intolerant and weak, leading to rashes and spots.
But Kalme Undercoat. by Skin Shop, is a unique one-stop solution to the complex and growing problem of sensitive skin.
This product’s sole function is to provide an ‘armour’ for sensitive skin, increasing the skin’s tolerance to cosmetics and beauty products.
Skin sensitivity is usually caused by build-up intolerance to chemicals in skincare products, perfumes and cosmetics.
Skin sensitivity can cause a number of symptoms including redness, rashes, pimples or itching, which although often temporary, can develop over several days and remain for varied periods of time.
So if you’re wearing a heavier foundation or simply have overly-sensitive skin, this will help increase your skin’s tolerance and reduce sensations of pain and discomfort.
Apply this gel-like forumla as a daily moisturiser to sensitive skin or as an ‘undercoat’ before cosmetics are applied to help de-sensitise skin.
For best results, allow for 15 minutes before for undercoat to sink into skin before applying other products.
