Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector and Concealer

Hiding dark circles under your eyes can be tough at any time but especially after a 25 hour flight home. I’d like to say I still look relaxed and fresh from my recent vacation to Turkey but today I definitely needed some extra help! Enter the new Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector and Concealer.

The Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector is a colour corrector that works to brighten under-eye darkness and re-energise skin to look rejuvenated and fresh. It also primes the area under the eye before applying concealer.

The Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer then works to lighten, brighten and even out skin tone under the eyes. It is formulated to minimise signs of ageing, excess pigmentation and irritation. Leaving the eyes looking fresher, brighter, and more rejuvenated.

I have to admit, it must’ve worked, because all I’ve been told is how great I look after my break. No one would even know I’ve had barely any sleep! To shop the new Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector and Concealer for yourself visit the Bobbi Brown website here.

Thats where the new compact Mecca Cosmetica Jet Setter Kit comes in. It ticks all the above boxes and beyond. It’s functional, flight-friendly and packed with the all the beauty essentials you need.

Inside the chic, clear beauty bag is a smoothing primer, SPF 25+ lip balm, make-up remover, wash cloth, SPF 30+ sunscreen as well as a tube of eye brightener. Which will certainly be necessary after a 25+ hour flight, that’s for sure!

It’s available for a limited time only, so if it’s something you’ll need in the near future, I’d snap one up asap here. Or if you have any which you can recommend to me, be sure to let me know!

Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

After a year or more of BB, CC,DD and even EE creams, it seems the beauty world has returned to good old foundations – and high coverage ones at that. The latest addition to the extensive Clinique foundation range is the new Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. It’s a liquid foundation and concealer and can be used as either. Applied all over the face like a foundation, or dotted on as a concealer. It’s a full coverage foundation, but the key is that it is very, very, light.

It has a breathable formula which adapts to the skin’s needs with dual-sphere particles that absorb excess oil or add hydration – whatever your skin needs. That means dry patches are treated to extra hydration and shiny areas get zapped with oil-absorbing particles. The polymers in the formula won’t dry out and help make-up glide on easily. This new foundation has a doe foot applicator – use it to apply dots all over the face, or turn it sideways to spread across the cheeks and larger areas on the face. Or, you can use the top of it to cover smaller imperfections on the face.

This foundation is full coverage and you will see that the minute it is applied. It is blend-able, but you do need to work it well and don’t apply too much. In order to get great coverage you don’t need a lot at all. If you love a ‘proper’ foundation, you should try this one out. I also used it over my lighter BB cream in part as a concealer on the dark ‘bags’ under my eyes and it blends in beautifully. The new Clinique 2-in-1 Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer is available to purchase online here.

My Post-Flight Skincare Regime.

Thanks to a fabulous summer holiday in Turkey, I have silky sun-kissed skin. Something I don’t want to loose after flying for 30 plus hours, as well as heading back to winter weather. Here’s a list of tips, tricks and skincare products I’ll be using to maintain perfect skin today, tomorrow and for weeks to come on my return home.

Philosophy Hope In a Jar Day & Night Cream. Paint this on at night and you’ll suddenly give ‘sleeping beauty’ new meaning. It is my go-to whenever my skin needs an extra hydration boost.

Aesop Fabulous Face Oil. Oils are a great way to combat skin turning dull and dry. This one — which contains sweet almond and macadamia oils — can be used every day on normal or even congested skin. Apply 3-5 drops to clean skin or for an intense hydration hit, add a couple of drops to your moisturising cream.

Puretopia Eye Rescue Refresh & Detoxifying Massage Roller. The Puretopia Eye Rescue Refresh and Detoxifying Massage Roller works to soothe, refresh and help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the fragile eye area which will ensure you don’t look like you’ve just had an all-nighter or travelled 30 hours.

Biore Self-Heating One Minute Mask. The Biore Self-Heating One Minute Mask is a thermal mask that warms to open your pores. The mask draws out and dissolves 2.5 times more dirt, oil, and surface toxins than a basic cleanser, and rinses them clean away with an invigorating cooling sensation. Perfect after a long haul flight – especially when you haven’t had a chance to cleanse properly for quite some time.

Alpha H Instant Facial. A must-have all year round. Keep one in your handbag, or in your carry-on on during flights. Spritz under or over makeup to revitalise and rehydrate skin.

Milk & Co. Body Oil. Coming in at under $15, this super hydrating body oil is a steal. It’s packed with vitamins, minerals and plant extracts and perfect for scars, stretch marks or simply dehydrated skin.

Chapstick Balm. Lips can easily become dry and chapped in any weather. Keep a Chapstick stashed in your pocket to protect your pout whenever you’re on the go, and especially when you’re sitting on a long haul flight.

Paul Mitchell Super Strength Treatment : Paul Mitchell’s Super Strength Treatment instantly rebuilds and restores hair. A must have after days in the sun and surf, or sitting amongst dehydrating aeroplane air-conditioning.

ModelCo Gradual Tan. Maintain your holiday glow on your return and top up your tan with ModelCo’s Gradual Tan and everyday moisturiser.
