SPRING/SUMMER BEAUTY UPDATE

With spring in full swing and summer on the horizon, thoughts turn to brighter, glow-giving makeup and fresh-looking skin that’s been soothed and smoothed over night…
NARSissist Palette II

BOUNCE BACK

OriginsOrigins Original Skin Cleansing Jelly, £19.50. We love the fresh, bouncy texture of this new, deep-cleansing face wash from Origins. The lightweight gel, free of mineral oil, parabens and other nasties, transforms into a nourishing, milky cleanser with a just few splashes of water, helping to break down and dissolve stubborn face and eye makeup and excess oil. Massage into wet skin, rinse off and show off baby-soft skin.

COVER UP

bareMineralsbareMinerals barePro 16-Hour Full Coverage Concealer, £23. Brighten up your peepers to fake a full night’s sleep with this brand new concealer, delivering ultra-creamy coverage that’s natural-looking, crease-proof and, somehow, stays put all day. It’s also waterproof and humidity-resistant, making it a perfect pop-in-your-suitcase product if you’re jetting off to warmer climes over the coming months.

MATTE MAKER

BiodermaBioderma Sebium Mat Control, £12.50. Tackle shiny skin as the weather (slowly) warms up, with a few pats of Bioderma’s new mattifying moisturiser. A perfect pick for oily, sensitive complexions, the gentle fluid melts into skin, leaving zero residue, helping to refine and tighten pores, control shine for up to eight hours and tend to pesky blemishes and blocked pores. A great base for makeup, too.

FRESHEN UP

Jimmy ChooJimmy Choo Blossom Special Edition Eau de Parfum, £48, (60ml). We can’t get enough of Jimmy Choo’s new, springtime scent – a sparkling, sweeter version of the brand’s iconic fragrance. The perfect balance between floral and fruity, with juicy notes of exotic fruits blended with light frangipani and sandalwood, it’s an absolute must-buy for anyone after an uplifting, refreshing and feminine spritz for the warmer months.

SERENE SKIN

NeomNeom Perfect Night’s Sleep Cleansing Balm, £32. Neom’s new cleanser is a soothing winner, guaranteed to calm even the most stressed-out skin, leaving it softer, more balanced and replenished. It’s 100 per cent natural and infused with 14 pure, relaxing essential oils, including lavender and chamomile, and vitamin-rich oils, all of which help to repair tired skin and help you prepare for sleep. Best massaged into clean, damp skin and removed with a muslin cloth.
