One step closer to new normal

Wednesday, 27th May, 2020 6:12pm

Another week closer to the new normal has got me excited! I am hoping to emerge from lockdown the way a butterfly does from a cocoon. I mean, I will be a chubby one after all the lockdown baking, but hopefully with great skin!

I have been enjoying trialling new products and taking a bit of time to assess what works within my routine. I am also blessed to show you the latest launches that have caught my eye this month.

Often neglected, the neck and décolletage is an area that we can forget. Clarins has added a brand-new product to its Extra Firming range. A pioneer in skincare for the neck and décolleté since 1978, Clarins has continued to innovate to keep pace with women and their changing lifestyle, including a new concern: ‘tech neck’. We are spending increased time looking at phones which causes increased movement in that area.

Clarins did 68 trials on the product. I love the incredibly comfortable texture of Extra-Firming Cou & Décolleté (€64) that promotes a feeling of well-being and smoother-looking skin.

The Max Contour Gel Crème (€129)

Reclaim youthful contours with this contouring gel crème that restores the look of firmness and volume to the lower face. An anti-gravity peptide lifts and firms skin’s appearance, as the lipo-filler helps to counteract the look of sagging. An essential for your skincare arsenal coming onto summer.

The Max Wrinkle Smoother (€98)

Smooth things over with this serum that combines a wrinkle-fighting peptide, high-tech lifting polymer, and plant stem cell technology to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The unique applicator means you can target specific areas for an extra boost. Inspired by baby anti-wrinkle injections procedures, this serum targets wrinkle formation pathways to smooth the look of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and expression lines. Nutrient-dense plant stem cells derived from sweet iris provide a visible tightening effect, as a transparent lifting polymer smoothes out wrinkles. A great topical addition to your injectable regimen.

Prevention+ Daily Defence Lip Enhancer SPF 15 (€30)

The science behind this product is incredible. Protect with an all-new lip complex with mineral SPF 15 protection. It is enhanced with palmitoyl tripeptide 1, a biomimetic peptide that moisturises and boosts the appearance of lip volume. This will keep your lips hydrated and supple. It’s a great post-procedure product too.

Legit Lashes – Huda Beauty (€27)

Do you feel bare and bald with just your own wispy lashes? Whether you want to turn up the volume or are looking for a boost in the length department, each wand works effortlessly to give you the lashes you are after. Both ends are loaded with Huda’s signature extra black, ‘black-2’ liquid pigment. You can choose a variety of lash looks with just one hero mascara.

One end of Legit Lashes is armed with a curved brush featuring intertwined petal bristles, which means this pigmented mascara loads evenly onto the lashes to build layer after layer of volume without losing any definition or flexibility. The flip side of the wand features a second unique formula that grips onto each lash, giving you immediate length and added curl.

For your hands, Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Organic Hand Hygiene Spray (€6.95) is a home and handbag essential that can be used on-the-go, in public bathrooms or on buses and trains.

Organic glycerin, which naturally draws moisture into the skin, is added to the hand spray rather than synthetic petrochemical thickeners, leaving a smooth after-feel that is not sticky or drying.
