Brighten Blue Monday with these Sunday Riley essentials

Dispel the ‘Blue Monday’ despair with these beautiful, blue-hued essentials from Sunday Riley…

{Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm}

Not only does this stunning cleansing balm make us burst into impromptu song, but Sunday Riley’s velvety-textured blend of unctuous oils, butters and plant extracts dissolves every last speck of dirt and make up (without leaving your skin feeling stripped). The colour of the Côte d’Azur, this gorgeous balm-to-oil-to-milk makes cleansing a delight – with moisturising cocoa butter to promote skin’s elasticity and ‘stretch’, the star is a blend of azulene-rich oils of blue tansy and German chamomile – renowned for their anti-inflammatory, redness-reducing and healing abilities.

{Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream}

Starring two weights of hyaluronic acid, this featherweight hydrator feels refreshing when massaged over your face and neck post-cleansing. The ultimate thirst-quenching foil for dry or confused skin types, this floods cells with moisturise without suffocating – so even congested or shine-prone complexions feel ‘plumped’ and consistently nourished. Papaya enzymes then gently resurface – eliminating dulling dead cells to reveal the more luminous skin cells beneath – while alpha-arbutin and giant white bird of paradise extract combine to brighten hyperpigmentation spots and restore uniformity of tone. 

{Luna Sleeping Night Oil}

A silky overnight elixir, this beautiful, sapphire blue blend of line-lessening retinol and calming blue tansy works wonders for dulled or more mature complexions. Whether you’re concerned about fine lines, lost lustre or diminished density, this oil kick-starts creation of essential elastin and collagen – stimulating skin’s repair (and renewal) processes, to maintain youthful vibrancy and reduce any redness. Apply to clean skin before bed (allowing five minutes to penetrate), or press on top of {Tidal} to enhance the plumping benefits.
