Want Beyoncé’s Favourite Face Oil?

Beyonce Sunday Riley Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil

{Good Genes, Serum & Mask} is beloved by straight-talking editor India Knight, who was bowled over by GG’s amazing, overnight efficacy; “Blow me if I didn’t wake up looking renewed, rather than dehydrated and mildly hungover. There was a luminosity to my skin that hadn’t been there before.” It’s also a customer must-have (get your hands on a sample at checkout if your skin is especially sensitive) – one incredibly satisfied lady named this multi-tasking miracle “Amazing. For the first time in my life, I have great skin.” We urge you to believe the hype…


Ruth Crilly of A Model Recommends has waxed poetic about {Artemis Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil} – a balancing elixir for ‘split personality’ skin, that she found to be “plumping and softening and – when used throughout more ‘hormonal’ times – gave a good glow without causing spot issues.” This has a fresh, citrus-y scent (from the clarifying lemon myrtle) and feels wonderfully invigorating, when massaged into clean skin every morning.


VOGUE awarded {Ceramic Slip Cleanser} their coveted ‘seal of approval’ – advocating this clay-based cleanser for all those with dehydrated, blemish-prone complexions. “Since congested skin can often be dehydrated too – and harsh cleansers often worsen the problem – Ceramic Slip’s gentle, non-lather formula ensures skin is balanced and soothed.” Our sentiments exactly…


Sunday Riley Start Over Active Eye Cream

Our very own ‘Beauty at Every Age’ blogger Georgia Gatsby swears by {Start Over Active Eye Cream}, having put it through its paces before drawing a conclusion. “This eye cream is extraordinary. I didn’t think so at first – it seemed to make the area under my eyes dry – but I’m so glad I persisted. Within three-four days, the effect was reversed. It doesn’t sting at all and it wipes out wrinkles before your eyes… like magic. The effect lasts all day. I’ve never come across anything like this before – and, believe me, I’ve tried many eye creams.”


With a looooooong list of A-list devotees including Beyoncé, Blake Lively, Claire Danes, Drew Barrymore and Olivia Wilde, {Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil} is also award-winning. Harper’s Bazaar named it ‘Best Night Oil’ in their most-recent ‘Beauty Best of the Best’ awards 2015; “For us, the ‘Juno’ oil is a skin care essential. The formula brightens and plumps dry, tired skin within a couple of days and can be used in the day and the evening. Use it as the final step of a home mini-facial, or dab it on cheekbones to add dewiness.”


Make up artist and cosmetic connoisseur Lisa Eldridge loves {Disrobe Body Lotion} – “Another favourite of mine, it’s packed with lactic acid – one of my most-worshipped ingredients ever (basically a very gentle, non-grainy exfoliator that gets rid of dead cells, without the need to scrub!) – shea butter, urea, glycerin (great for holding moisture) and squalene (to repair any rough or damaged skin – think age, pollution and sun exposure). After using it for about a week I found my skin was noticeably smoother, firmer and more even.” Perfect for imminent holiday season!
