This week we’re loving a body sculpting serum from a cult UK brand that’s just arrived in Australia, a cheap and cheerful body tint plus a travel mask that’s made for long-haul flights (you’re going to love this one!).
When Travelmate Essence Gel Mask
Earlier this month I flew to Shanghai (hello 10+ hours on a plane!) and so I couldn’t wait to try this gel mask. Now I won’t travel without it. I decided to use all those hours in that drying air to pamper my skin, and it couldn’t be easier to use (even in economy class). You simply peel back the gel mask from the backing paper and place on dry skin (I gave my skin a clean first with my favourite face wipes). Even better, you don’t have to rinse it off – so no waiting in line for those tiny bathrooms – it simply absorbs into the skin in 30 minutes. My skin looked rejuvenated and felt soft and hydrated – the first time in 20 years of flying!
Even better for a natural skincare lover like myself, it’s formulated without any parabens or sulfates phthalates, but packed with goodies like Swiss alpine herbs extracts, grapefruit seeds and ginseng. The price is incredible, only $12.95 per mask or $39.95 for 4. From now on it’s passport, wallet, and When Travelmate Essence Gel Mask. Available at www.lovebeautyhub.com.
Cowshed Slender Cow Body Sculpting Serum
I used to use Cowshed when I lived in London so was thrilled the hear this cult range is now available in Australia (at comparable prices as opposed to the usual overinflated price hikes!). The packaging is adorable and I always get remarks from visitors. But better still, I adore their tongue-in-cheek Slender Cow Body Sculpting Serum. The serum feels so lovely to apply to the skin after your shower, and while it doesn’t chisel you a Salma Hayek figure, it tightens the skin in a comfortable way and you definitely feel lifted and sexier. RRP $57.60
Cowshed is available at FeelUnique.com, a new online beauty store with free shipping. It stocks a range of products that have been tricky to purchase in Australia until now, like DuWop, Balm Balm, Rodial and Cowshed. So I suggest you give them a try!
Australis All Over Face and Body Tint
I’m a huge fan of this product, which is basically a tinted moisturiser for your face AND body. Why would you need a tint for your body? Think weddings, parties and any occasion when you’re showing some skin. It creates a lightweight veil that enhances your own natural skintone and lightly evens out imperfections. Plus it contains jojoba, pomegranate, rosehip and avocado oils that moisturise the skin. And I’d only recommend it if it was cruelty-free, which it is – yippee! Available in Light, Medium and Dark for $19.95.
