There's nothing i like more than trying out a new cream, lotion or potion that promises to make me look youthful and ‘totally zen’ man. As someone who had horrific acne as a teenager though you won't win my praise very easily, i’m meticulous when it comes to choosing the good from the bad. Lately i’ve trialled a number of products and here are some of my favourites
1. Elemis ‘Luminous Skin Collection’
Elemis, one of my all-time hero product ranges will be giving QVC viewers exclusive access to a six piece ‘Luminous Skin Collection’ from April 10th, for just under €70, but the products will be worth over €200 so make sure to tune in on the day.
6-Piece ‘Luminous Skin Collection’ includes: Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 200ml (Worth £34.00), Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream 30ml (Worth £60.00), Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment 15ml (Worth £41.50), Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser for Face 50ml (Worth £30.00), NEW Frangipani Monoi Hand & Nail Cream 100ml (Worth £18.50), White Flower Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover 28ml (Worth £5.20)
2. Bioderma Hydrabio Range
Bioderma have just launched their ultra-hydrating Hydrabio Range, specially developed to give you maximum hydration for a busy city lifestyle and yet its kind to your skin at the same time
The Serum priced at €22, is my favourite.
3. Truvivity by Nutrilite
Since we were tiny we’ve always been told that beauty starts on the inside. This is a novel way to tackle your skincare regime, from the inside out using Truvivity food supplements consists of a beauty supplement and beauty powder drink (combined price of €132) that are packed full of nutrient rich ingredients including Vitamin A, C and zinc which create the ultimate beauty package. The jury is still out on this one, but it sounds like a new way to tackle those lines and it can’t be bad to take more vitamins, can it?
4. La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Overnight
This is a fantastic product if you have allergy-prone highly sensitive skin like me. It provides soothing relief to skin when inflamed, broken or dry using a combination of Neurosensine and Vitamin E to nourish stressed out skin. I used it after a recent ski trip, having returned with dry chapped and flaky skin and it did wonders. Priced at €18.50
5. Vichy Ideal Body Range
Vichy have just produced the most gorgeous Ideal Body Range, that just smells divine plus combines those old face-saving friends Hyaluronic Acid and LHA’s to turn your body into a young-wan’s again. Yes they can turn back time! I loved the Body Oil from the range the most, priced at €23, and it can be used in hair, body or face making it thrice as nice for busy mums and working ladies
