“My wild curls can some­times be hard to deal with, es­pe­cially af­ter re­cently chem­i­cally pro­cess­ing them to achieve a muted lilac hue. While the colour looks amaz­ing, it comes with a hefty price. I searched high and low for prod­ucts that would re­pair the dam­age with­out strip­ping the colour off and found this treat­ment that ticked all the boxes. It’s for­mu­lated with quinoa, a com­plete pro­tein that has all nine amino acids es­sen­tial for strength­en­ing and re­pair­ing stressed strands. I use this once a week in place of my con­di­tioner and leave it for two to five min­utes be­fore rins­ing. My hair in­stantly feels softer and more hy­drated, which re­sults in more de­fined ringlets with­out com­pro­mis­ing on the colour.”

“Let’s get real for a sec; I don’t place enough im­por­tance on my lips as com­pared to the rest of my face or hair and I reckon I’m not alone. The fact that our lips age too is a de­tail that I con­stantly for­get so I de­cided to ex­per­i­ment with more than just a lip balm to counter the ef­fects of age­ing and found this serum stick. It forms a dou­ble layer of oil and wa­ter on the lips to lock in mois­ture and leave them sup­ple all day long. The apri­cot ker­nel oil and elas­tic com­plex help fill in and smoothe out lines while plump­ing up lips at the same time. Need­less to say, af­ter a week of us­ing this, my matte liq­uid lip­sticks started glid­ing on like but­ter.”

“Fine lines are a nat­u­ral re­sponse to age­ing but that doesn’t mean I’ll go down with­out a fight. Star­ing at my com­puter screen for at least eight hours a day prob­a­bly ex­ac­er­bated them and I’ve been on the hunt for a good eye cream that will re­verse the clock (or at least, halt it). This 24-hour hy­drat­ing triple-ac­tion eye treat­ment re­pairs, mois­turises and bright­ens skin, while pre­vent­ing free-rad­i­cal dam­age too. It has a thicker con­sis­tency which is great around my eyes as it pre­vents it from mov­ing around and risk­ing get­ting into them. My per­sonal tip is to use it be­fore a con­cealer and it will glide on with­out cling­ing on to lines and dry patches.” 3 ES­TEE LAUDER AD­VANCED NIGHT RE­PAIR EYE SU­PER­CHARGED COM­PLEX SYN­CHRO­NIZED RE­COV­ERY, RM254

There are times where my metic­u­lous skin­care rou­tine can’t keep my dry skin from wors­en­ing, which can be caused by stress or en­vi­ron­men­tal ag­gres­sors and boy, is it frus­trat­ing! Luck­ily, these prod­ucts re­boot and pro­tect my skin in­stantly.
