When it comes to skincare I’m always hesitant to try something new but over the past few months I’ve practically used up a couple of luxury items that completely surprised me. Lets talk about the stuff that’s worth it’s dollar, three luxury skincare winners which combine freshness and hydration – all in a gel-like formula.
CHANEL released Hydra Beauty Micro Sérum earlier this year and to be honest this product wasn’t love at first sight. But the more I used it, the more my skin was just craving it. I noticed a big difference on the dry patches of my skin and now simply can’t be without it! The silky texture of the serum delivers just the right amount of hydration to my skin, it mattefies my oily T-zone while nourishing the dryer areas of my face. In terms of hydration, it really packs a punch without ever feeling heavy. It’s something I now feel my skin is addicted to and I haven’t been without it for a while.
Since Greg mentioned this in our “skincare routine video” I was dying to give this one a go! The By Terry Hydra-Comfort Aqua Balm, does exactly what it says on the tin. It has a similar texture to the Chanel Sérum – so very light and almost gel-like, but this balm gave my skin a glow and extra boost of hydration, which lasted all day long. And although my skin can sometimes react a little funny to scented skincare, this calming fragrance was incredibly soothing and refreshing. The silky finish is a perfect base for applying foundation for a radiant look.
This is the most expensive eye cream I’ve ever used… but it’s soooo good! I was given it by a viewer in NYC (thank you Tatiana!) and I fell in love instantly. The first sign of thirsty skin, always shows under my eyes. When I feel especially tired and my under eye area suffers of some serious dehydration, then this is my secret weapon to restore the moisture and keep those little fine lines at bay. This Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel keeps everything fresh, hydrated and happy. A little goes a long way of this watery formula, and I just love the way it makes my concealer look – no creasing, no fading or flaking.
