This new facial oil is perfect for the oil-phobic user

 

Clé-de-Peau-Beauté-Radiant-Multi-Repair-Oil il-CA.jpg

You got an aversion to facial oils? We hear you. While drier-skinned women love how oils sink in effortlessly and instantly rejuvenate the complexion, those with combination or oily skin, will probably avoid oils like the plague.

The new Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Multi-Repair Oil is not only lightweight, it’s relatively affordable for a luxury brand product. Each precious drop in the rose-hued bottle, can be used not just on the facial skin, but on the hair and body. Each drop targets skin and cuticle roughness and dryness and can hydrate for up to 24 hours.

cle-de-peau-beaute-radiant-multi-repair-oil

Trust Clé de Peau Beauté to come up with facial oil that’s lightweight, luxurious and multi-purpose.

Enriched with a repair oil complex that contains rice germ, bio evening primrose, rosehip and camellia oils, this oil is rich in γ-linolenic acid, an ingredient often used to treat eczemic skin. This helps strengthen the skin’s barrier function, while a soya bean phospholipid in the formula supports the skin’s architecture, for a firmer, less lined and rejuvenated complexion.

cle-de-peau-beaute-radiant-multi-repair-oil-3

A few drops of Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Multi-Repair Oil is enough.

How to use:

For face:

  • Incorporate this treatment into your nighttime skincare routine.
    Use at any time as desired – after cleansing, after applying lotion, or after applying emulsion.
    For normal usage, release three drops of oil into your palm using the dropper, and smooth over face gently.
    To enjoy the benefits of a relaxing facial massage during your skincare routine, release six drops of oil into your palm using the dropper and perform massage as shown in the illustrations.

For body:

  • After bathing and before skin is completely dry, smooth oil over body. Release sufficient drops of oil into your palm as desired based on the intended application. Perfect for dry patches of skin like the elbows. Get much more benefit after peeling the skin.

For hair:

  • After washing hair, gently towel dry hair and apply a desired amount of oil to ends, to tame frizzy hair.
    Dry hair with hairdryer, avoiding excessive heat.

We like packing the generously-sized bottle on trips as it helps the skin and hair in any emergency. Mix it in with your foundation if your skin is feeling dry and lacklustre, apply it on your cuticles and to tame frizzy hair ends…. it’s what we call a trye Holy Grail.

4 Pre-Makeup Boosters

When they say that it takes an army to look good, they are not always referring to a slew of artists. In most cases, it also requires a few secret weapons that help to achieve the perfect glow. We bring you the four amazing boosters you need in your arsenal.

  • Smooth start

Oils used to have such a bad rep for turning skin all greasy and unappealing. But the new generation of products begs to differ. Case in point: the Shiseido Future Solution LX Replenishing Treatment Oil , a silky-smooth formula that not only nourishes, softens and plumps up skin but also gives your complexion a radiant sheen when you mix the oil with your favorite moisturizers or foundations.

  • The multi-way wonder

For me the Yves Saint Laurent Or Rouge range is a true holy grail. Lucky, this Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Or Rouge Mask-in-Crème is more affordable than its face cream. Despite its name, it works quite well as an intensive night moisturiser so go do your Math there. Besides working as a luxurious leave-on mask, it also acts as a makeup booster. Apply this gently-scented and saffron-charged formula, rinse off after 15 minutes and then doll up. Your skin will look much more radiant and feel softer under makeup. A new YSL holy grail!

Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Or Rouge Mask-in-Crème

  • Oil up, then doll up

Fancy cosmetics brand M.A.C having an essential oil among its products. I was surprised to come across the M.A.C Prep+Prime Essential Oil. Mix a little of this almost-scentless oil with your liquid foundation to make the latter glide more smoothly and evenly onto skin and also to give your complexion a dewy touch. Your skin will look and feel less parched by mid-day. No wonder that it’s the secret tool of makeup experts.

MAC Prep+Prime Essential Oil

  • A mask-have

Just when you thought that it was sufficient to use a cream or sheet mask every now and then, along comes a mask primer. The newly launched Origins Maskimizer Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer uses a marine algae complex that is known for its ability to retain moisture. When skin is soft and well-hydrated, it is better able to absorb ingredients from your face masks. To further quench skin, the Origins Maskimizer Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer also uses a technology that is reported to help skin bind moisture. And this must come as good news for those of us who have long struggled with spreading clay masks evenly on our faces (and also removing the gunk later) – applying Orgins Maskimizer beforehand is making the job much easier.

Yves Saint Laurent introduces new primers

For years I was a HUGE fan of Yves Saint Laurents Premier Teint, an àmazing product, that did èverything it promised. For me, and many of my colleagues a Holy Grail! They where availble in several coloris, like yellow (my favorite, most used), green, pink and ‘white’. There texture was sóo perfect! But not only that, also the colors, the where perfect. These little 20ml square bottles where little gems! Sadly…. on one moment: production stopped. Why? That’s always the question….

I tried many, many others, from other prestige houses, but no…. I didn’t find someting that comes close. A friend of mine advised me MAC. But I’m sorry, the texture…. no, it’s totally not my thing! When there is ‘good’, ‘better’, ‘best’… Mac was for me (not that) ‘good’. The YSL Premier Teint was (the) ‘Best’!!

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer, 30ml (Click photo to enlarge).

Now the house of Yves Saint Laurent has just released its new Touch Éclat Blur Primer, a product described as the brand’s first light infused primer. This blurring and illuminating fluid gel primer not only helps your makeup look better and last longer, but it also evens out the complexion, and blurs pores, lines and wrinkles.

This innovative primer is formulated using a cutting-edge technology, which allows the light to diffuse appropriately without interference from dulling opaque fillers. This (extreme!) lightweight, transparent gel features miniscule shimmering particles that blend evenly into the skin. The result is a gorgeous, natural-looking radiance, without any excess glitter. The primer is quite watery and very easy to apply, so that it instantly creates an ideal canvas.

The Touche Éclat Blur Primer can be layered under foundation to boost radiance, or worn alone (or with powder) to create a perfect canvas. Either way, apply one pump of the product on the back of your hand, and then apply with a tender sweeping gesture from the center of the face outward. The important thing is to leave it to set over skin for about 10 seconds before applying foundation.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer is available in a single, transparent shade. The product is delivered in a luxurious, massive glass bottle with a gold-colored stopper and a pump dispenser. The formula is suitable for all skin types, and it is non-comedogenic. The formula is a blend of corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil hydrates skin and smoothes out the skin’s texture. A dose of finely milled gold shimmer imparts skin with a hint of luminosity.

In addition, YSL has introduced the ultimate Couture Eye Primer, which promises to prolong the wear of your eyeshadow to no less than 16 hours. Same as its Touche Éclat Blur counterpart, the Couture Eye Primer can be layered under the eye shadow, of worn alone for a perfect nude eye look. The formula promises a crease-proof wear, and it comes in two shades Fair and Medium.

I love them! I found a new Holy Grail! There texture, everything, they are perfect! But still: I miss the old premier teint to work with…..

The Touche Éclat Blur Primer, a real must have! For everybody! Even when you don’t use makeup but loves a radiance boost! It doesn’t matter what kind of makeup brand you prefer! You can use it with every product, every brand!

Summer tip: Use your facial Sun Cream SPF 30 as daycream. Then after a few seconds a thin layer Touche Éclat Blur Primer and then if you like… just a little of your favorite (YSL) bronzing powder! Voila! And look amazing on summer boulevard!
