Winner of ‘Editor’s Choice’ at the 2018 Beauty Shortlist Awards, our advanced-skincare collection has been well and truly flying off the shelves. Now fully back in stock, it’s time to discover all the ways you can use it to enjoy a Summer of beautifully luminous skin at the sweep of a finger.
“From the ultra-hydrating Eye Revive to the Super Balm cleanser (which really lives up to its name), this range is a joy to use – every product we tested hit the spot.” Fiona Klonarides, Beauty Shortlist Awards, Director
A longer-lasting tan
Whether you’re a fan of faking it, or hoping for a natural sun-kissed complexion, the secret to a perfectly even, long-lasting golden glow lies in how you prep your skin.
1. Start clean & smooth
Use our customer-favourite Super Balm to make your skin feel smoother, which is key if you want a lovely even tan (real or not). Its luxury, balm-to-oil texture means it will gently cleanse and dissolve all traces of make-up and dirt, without stripping skin of its natural oils. For extra skin-buffing goodness, remove with a damp face cloth.
“Super Balm keeps my skin so moisturised compared to other cleansers. I have really noticed a difference in my skin.” Karen Wallace, Surrey
2. Add a hit of hydration
Once you’ve cleansed your skin, give it a much-needed drink with Super Serum. Lighter than a moisturiser, it’s highly absorbent, which helps its skin-quenching components to sink deeply into the skin. This clever serum really locks in long-lasting moisture for a perfectly plump, even base.
“I love Super Serum. I can really feel it working and the results are great. My skin is plumper and my lines are softening after just one week.” Chris, Wells
3. Time to tan
If you’re using fake tan, wait until the Super Serum has fully absorbed before applying as directed by your tanning product. If you’re going outside to bask beneath the sun, always use a high-quality sun cream to protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Bright make-up free-skin
When the weather hots up, everybody dreams of ditching high-coverage foundation to bare all (or at least move to a lighter BB cream). To feel more skin confident this Summer, try these quick hacks.
1. It’s all in the eyes
A common concern with going make-up free is those under-eye dark circles. The truth is, if your eyes look fresh (even if you haven’t had your full eight hours) your whole complexion automatically looks brighter. That’s why you’ll reap the rewards if you start using a targeted eye cream, such as our award-winning Eye Revive, now.
“One of the best eye-zone refreshers we’ve tried, we’ll be keeping this sleek squeezable multi-tasker in our handbags this Summer.” Fiona Klonarides, Beauty Shortlist Awards, Director
2. Prime time
Our Advanced Hydration moisturiser is made with super-hydrating hyaluronic acid (renowned for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water), which helps to lock-in moisture to create a lovely lit-from-within glow. Our non-greasy formula behaves like a moisturiser and primer in one, giving skin a matte-velvet touch you won’t want to mask with make-up.
“I absolutely love this moisturiser, I have used premium skincare for years and this is better. It sinks in perfectly and leaves your skin looking so plump.” Claire Watson, Glasgow
3. Minimal make-up
Ever wondered why your skin looks so much better on holiday? We think giving it a break from make-up plays a part. That’s why you should show off your naturally beautiful complexion with just a slick of highlighter, a little lipstick and a swish of mascara. Remember to cleanse properly before bed with our Super Balm.
“Firmly now on our desert-island beauty-essentials list, we saw results after the very first cleanse with Super Balm: it left skin super clean, baby soft and with a touch more luminosity, too.” Fiona Klonarides, Beauty Shortlist Awards, Director
Re-hydrating after a day in the sun
From lounging on beaches to picnics in parks, there are so many things we love about the season of alfresco living. To keep glowing Summer skin on that list, here’s how to replenish it come bedtime.
1. Quench skin’s thirst
Our Night Oil won ‘Best Sleep Treatment’ at the 2018 Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards. using this wonder oil is a sure-fire way to wake up to luminous skin that feels soft as silk. We like to think of it as ‘radiance in a bottle’ so, put this special Amazonian-oil rich hero on your bedside table, smooth it into skin (using upwards circular movements) and see the results for yourself.
“I know I’ll wake up to flawless-looking skin when I use Night Oil!” Sarah, Cardiff
2. Treat dry patches
If you notice any areas of dryness, let our nourishing Hand Elixir come to the rescue. Designed for even the driest of hands, simply smooth it all over the patches in need of a little added TLC. Made with marine algae and naturally derived hydrators, it offers intense moisture for the skin’s surface, epidermis and nails, so apply liberally to hands, feet, elbows and beyond.
“Tested, loved and highly recommended, this range is a delight to discover.” Fiona Klonarides, Beauty Shortlist Awards, Director
3. The best-kept secret to radiant skin
Upgrade your usual bed linen to a set made with silk. Why? Because silk is renowned for its ability to help hair and skin retain moisture, and is even thought to help prevent wrinkles and crumpled-looking bed hair. Our new Clarendon Collection is woven with 25% silk (and 75% linen), while our Connaught Collection is crafted with 40% silk (and 60% cotton), making them both fabulous options for a night of beauty sleep that will help your skincare products work their magic.
