There’s nothing a like a cupcake that’s fresh out of the oven versus one that’s been sitting on a shelf, and the same goes for your beauty products! Beauty writer, Rema Gouyez-Benallal (@REMAGOUYEZ
), suggests some of her favourite luxe mix-at-home products to give your skin and hair standout results.
PURE + SIMPLE ORGANIC VANILLA CLEANSING POWDER
Powder can function as a basic cleanser, mask and scrub to help draw out impurities while renewing and healing the skin. The PURE + SIMPLE VANILLA CLEANSING POWDER reduces inflammation, nourishes skin and stimulates new cell formation. Yellow French Clay detoxifies the skin to draw out impurities while chickpea powder absorbs excess oil.
TO USE: Mix with warm water and 100% natural argon oil to nourish, heal and hydrate the skin.
LUSH HENNA HAIR DYE
Henna is an ancient, natural colorant that is not only great for body art, but as a hair dye too. I’ll admit, the LUSH HENNA HAIR DYE is a lot of work, but the results are worth it if you’re after a natural dye. The result is incredibly tinted, shiny, glossy strands. Available in deep brown, chestnut brown, indigo black and red.
TO USE: Add boiling water, let sit and then mix with your hands until it’s a mushy mud texture. Apply to your hair and leave for 1 – 2 hours. Traditionally, you would wrap your head with plastic wrap and leave for 5 – 6 hours, sometimes overnight, but be sure to wrap your head in a towel.
PHILOSOPHY TIME IN A BOTTLE SERUM
The PHILOSOPHY TIME IN A BOTTLE SERUM features a high-potency vitamin c8 activator that works to help protect from skin-aging environmental aggressors and further DNA damage, boosting skin’s natural renewal and protection processes. Skin is radiant, even, smooth and firm.
TO USE: Pour the entire vial of high-potency vitamin c8 activator into the serum, fasten pump to the bottle and shake well for 20 seconds. The serum will turn light pink, meaning it’s ready to go. Use morning and/or evening on clean, dry skin.
STILA MAGNIFICENT METALS FOIL FINISH EYE SHADOW
I like to call STILA MAGNIFICENT METALS FOIL FINISH EYE SHADDOW, “Vegas in a bottle”. It’s like a foil film of colour that builds from a sheer shimmer to a high-metallic opaque. The set includes a primer, so your shadow stays put, almost like a tattoo!
TO USE: Using the provided mixing tray, simply prime, combine and shine.
BURBERRY FRESH GLOW FLUID
Burberry is famous for that British, countryside girl look and BURBERRY FRESH GLOW FLUID is so great for that. It enhances the complexion for a radiant, healthy look. The formula contains wild rose extract, providing moisturizing benefits and regenerating properties so skin is hydrated, protected and radiant.
TO USE: Get glowing by mixing this fluid with your shade of foundation or favourite cream blush to make your cheeks POP!
