Embryolisse Complexion Correcting Care SPF20

Embryolisse Complexion Correcting Care SPF20

I very rarely wear foundation, it’s usually only reserved for a very occasional big night out as I don’t like the way it makes my skin feel – all caked on, thick and leaving my skin struggling to breathe. My preferred go-to bases include tinted moisturisers, mineral powders and CC creams, products that are light and airy, giving sufficient coverage but letting some of my skin’s natural ‘personality’ shine through. In addition they’re usually quick and easy to apply, and I don’t have a lot of time in the morning. I’ve been trying out a CC Cream from cult brand Embryolisse, which aims to improve and treat skin whilst you’re wearing it. Complexion Correcting Care SPF20 includes Hyaluronic Acid which re-plumps skin and Biosaccharide which is an anti-ageing ingredient, plus the cream is suitable for vegans. In addition, as the name suggests, it contains SPF20 to help protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays during the day, which is really important during Winter as well as Summer. Complexion Correcting Care SPF20 is...

Docteur Renaud – Carrot Discovery Kit

Docteur Renaud – Carrot Discovery Kit

Earlier this year I reviewed the fabulous Carrot Scrub Detox from Docteur Renaud here on Beauty Best Friend blog. Docteur Renaud is a French natural cosmetology brand founded in 1947 and is now part of the Nuxe Group. The products all contain active ingredients taken from fruits, vegetables and flowers – some of which include raspberries, apricots, coconut and carrots. As I loved it so much I was recently sent this cute Carrot Discovery Kit* to try out as it contains two carrot moisturisers as well as the Carrot Scrub Detox. The kit, called ‘My Glowing Complexion Programme’, contains a 20ml tube of the Carrot Scrub Detox and mini 5ml samples of both Carrot Radiance Boost Day Cream and Carrot Renewing Night Cream, all nestled together inside a cardboard box decorated with carrots! I won’t go into full detail again about the Carrot Scrub Detox as you can read my full review here. I do have to say though that it’s a great exfoliator and it feels quite luxurious...

Clarins – Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

Clarins – Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

Another Clarins review for you today, and this one’s a bit of a luxury. It’s a recent addition to their Instant Light range, called Radiance Boosting Complexion Base*, aimed at illuminating and correcting the skin prior to applying your foundation. It comes in 3 shades and I’ve been testing out the Rose shade, which has been developed for all skin shades to help brighten the complexion. Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base is a lightweight cream with a floral rose scent and comes in a pump tube so it’s really easy and non-messy to dispense. It can be applied directly to the skin before applying foundation, or it can also be mixed with a liquid or cream foundation to add a shimmer and lightness to the base product. You can also apply it to the skin on its own, on non-make-up days, to just give the skin some brightness and lift, and it feels cool and freshening on the skin when you first apply it. I’ve been using this...
