SheSaid Loving RIght Now
I love skincare that brightens my skin, taking the years off. Here are 3 new products skin brightening products that I’m loving this week.
Benefit b.right skincare range
I was always going to love Benefit Cosmetics’ first foray into skincare (I’ve been a huge fan of Benefit from day one). But I didn’t expect it to work so well. The range not only looks amazing in the bathroom (I can’t get over the aqua packaging and faux cork lids!) but the products seriously deliver. It’s all about healthy, younger-looking skin. The Refined Finish Facial Polish is a lovely exfoliator that contains natural clay and seaweed extract, while the beads aren’t too harsh so you can use it every day. It’s Potent Eye Cream is the perfect consistency, melting right in and visibly brightening my under-eye circles from the first use. The Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 PA++ is oil-free and lightweight but deeply hydrates. It also smells divine.
Available from May 21 at Benefit stores and counters. Visit benefitcosmetics.com.
Clarins Vital Light Day and Night Creams
Clarins make some of the best moisturisers out there (SheSaid publisher Monique is a huge fan – and her skin is incredible!). The new Vital Light Day and Night creams are ideal for anyone 40-plus. It leaves skin with a deep radiance, banishing dull, unhealthy looking skin and improving firmness and texture. The clever ingredients boost collagen production and reflect light, so even before you put your makeup on your skin appears clearer and luminous. Hyperpigmentation (which can be caused by age and too much sun) and fine lines are reduced. Vital Light Night is a bit of a miracle worker, boosting microcirculation to revitalise your skin while your sleep. There’s nothing like waking up and seeing your skin looking radiant and nourished, and this must-have duo deliver just that.
Vital Light Day Comfort Cream, $125, and Night Comfort Cream, $130. At Clarins counters and selected pharmacies.
A’kin Skin Care Lavender Cellular Brightening Mist
Who doesn’t love the soothing scent of lavandar? This facial mist is a fantastic addition to your skincare routine – hop out of the shower and spritz your face and neck, and while it sinks in the pure nature of lavander, aloe, vitamin B5 and vitamin C help to even out skin tone, hydrating your skin and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. It also belongs in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups. Just spritz on your face (even over makeup) and you’ll look instantly refreshed and brighter.
$24.95. Visit purist.com.
