This stuff is amazing and I use it everyday on my kids; COOLA organic suncare spray on sunscreen. I’m wearing the rose tinted face moisturiser CC cream today and it gives a light coverage with SPF20 protection. Their daydream mineral primer has SPF 30 too so you layer skin products, for more sun protection.
The latest member of the Ceramide family is this clever little rollerball – Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift and Firm Sculpting Gel- that cleanly applies the clear gel with Ceramides and skin-tightening peptides. It supports collagen and elastin to firm the look of skin. $151 on counters 29th January.
Pearl Primer by The Porefessional from Benefit Cosmetics. It’s the Porefessional you know and love to minimise pores, plus it now has added brightening. Layer it for increased brightening and wear under makeup or over the top of makeup as a finishing touch to glow!
Benefit Cosmetics absolutely winning the brand Christmas gifts with this glitter snow globe of their hometown San Francisco! When you shake it, silver glitter falls on the Golden Gate Bridge and lady! This is so cool, Benefit once again you are killing it.
