Iconic London Radiance Booster

 Give your skin a healthy glow this autumn with Iconic London’s Radiance Booster.

This multi-functional, lightweight, skin tint can be used for an all-over illumination, worn alone to compliment your natural beauty, under your foundation or even mixed with your foundation for a lit-from-within glow.

 


Formulated with a cocktail of innovative ingredients, this beautiful, silky fluid is available in 10 sheer, versatile shades to flatter all skin tones.

Featuring a gel-crème formula, it contains a Oleo-Gel complex which works to smooth and even out your complexion and Luminizer Peptides to help maintain flawless transparency. 

 


Silky and lightweight, it creates a natural-looking, long lasting glow to lift a dull, tired complexion, blur imperfections and create the illusion of healthy, vibrant looking skin.

The booster is presented in a tall, elegant gold tube with a pump for hygienic distribution and application.

 

 

I opted to test out the shade ‘champagne’ as for 10 months of the year I am pretty darn pale so anything too warm would probably be too much for me.

‘Champagne’ as you may expect is a soft, neutral shade with slightly yellow undertones.



The fluid itself is rich yet light, creamy yet silky in texture.

It glides across your skin, creating a second-skin effect thanks to its feather light nature and ability to effortlessly blend into your complexion.

 


Absorbed almost instantly, it instantly leaves your skin feel softer and comforted without flooding your complexion.

I have oily/combination skin and I had no trouble at all with it disrupting the balance of my skin or making it look or feel heavy or greasy.

Applied to bare skin, it offers an instant ‘lift’, breathing life into your complexion and creating a natural, dewy appearance.




Once foundation has been applied, its glowing properties continue to radiate through, preventing your skin from looking too flat.

For a more intense, glass-like sheen, you can layer the fluid over the top of your base, concentrating on the areas of your face that would naturally catch the light, such as cheekbones and brow bones.

If you really aren’t a fan of sparkly highlighters or illuminators then you’re going to love this one because you’ll find absolutely zero sparkle here.

 


Instead, expect a soft, pearly glow as opposed to full on glitter and shimmer.

Created to compliment and boost the look of your skin rather than hide it, it is the perfect addition to absolutely everyone’s makeup bag.

Iconic London’s Radiance Boosters are available now and cost £30.

Heathcote and Ivory By The Sea Collection

 Discover the beautifully serene new self-care collection inspired by the sea from Heathcote and Ivory.

By The Sea is an elegant, calming line and features a comprehensive collection of products to transform your bathing experience, leaving you feeling energised and revived yet soothed and tranquil.

 


Perfect for treating yourself or gifting to a loved one, this collection is what is would describe as ‘affordable luxury’, thanks to its chic, refined packaging design and rich, aromatic ingredients.

By The Sea Body Wash & Body Lotion Duo (£23)

This beautiful gift set comprises of a luxury body wash and matching body lotion which are infused with the calming and uplifting scents of the sea. 

 


The gentle, rich body wash has been formulated with a seaweed complex, magnesium, potassium, nourishing glycerine and rose flower water to soothe, revive and hydrate parched skin.

Add to a sponge or puff to enjoy a host of plentiful soft, frothy bubbles to gently cleanse your skin while you soak in the gorgeously invigorating notes of lemon and bergamot, fresh floral violets, rose petals, soft iris and calming earthy notes of rich woods, tobacco and musk.

Grounding, charming and sumptuous, it is such a beautiful scent.

 


Continue your experience with the luxurious yet light body lotion.

Infused with the same wonderfully aromatic notes as the body wash, the lotion contains skin conditioning sweet almond, coconut and moringa oils to comfort and nourish your skin, leaving behind an invisible veil of delicate fragrance which lingers on your skin to delight your senses.

 

By The Sea Seaweed Complex Hand Cream Trio (£16)

This gorgeous gift features three travel sized hand creams.

 


Their compact size makes them great for popping in your bag, leaving in the office or simply having one in every room of your home so your hands will never be far away from a decadent hit of long lasting moisture when they most need it.

Formulated with a seaweed complex which contains extract of sea oak, they also contain Vitamin E, shea butter and aloe vera to gently yet effectively basnish dry, sore hands.

 


Velvety in texture, non-greasy and quickly absorbed, they leave your hands feeling wonderfully soft and smooth and feature the same elegant notes as the rest of the collection.

 

By The Sea Body Polish (£8)

Buff yourself beautiful with this gentle exfoliating body polish.

Created with exfoliating sea salt and walnut shell, it helps to reboot your skin and revive your mind with its clean, fresh scent.

 


Enriched with seaweed extracts, aloe vera and arnica flower extract, the luxurious formula gently buffs away dead, dry skin cells when massaged in circular motions into wet skin.

Your skin is left feeling wonderfully soft, smooth and rejuvenated.

 

By The Sea Scented Soap on a Rope (£10)

I think this could be my favourite item from the whole collection.

 


This nostalgic soap on a rope really does evoke images of a refreshing shower after a long day on a warm, salty and sandy beach.

Triple-milled with glycerine, it is both cruelty free and vegan friendly.



Creating a rich, creamy lather, you can now experience a coastal zen from the comfort of your very own bathroom.

The packaging from the collection has been made from sustainably sourced sugarcane and is recyclable, meaning you’ll be helping to save our beaches and sea by recycling.

 


The Heathcote and Ivory By The Sea Collection is available now.

Murad Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial

 Treat yourself to an at home exfoliating facial with Murad’s new Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial.

This hard working but gentle triple exfoliating treatment is proven to smooth texture as effectively as a microdermabrasion facial in just one use.

 



Housed within a sleek, vibrant orange tube you’ll find an impressive combination of physical, chemical and enzymatic exfoliants which together gently yet thoroughly remove dead skin cells and reinvigorate a dull, tired looking complexion for instantly smoother skin.

Suitable for all skin types, the jewel in the ingredient crown is gold-stabilised Vitamin C.




Boasting 55% more antioxidant powder than traditional Vitamin C, it delivers higher antioxidant defence, is bioavailable for increased absorption and the unique formula ensures the stability and potency of the Vitamin C, to dramatically brighten your skin.

In terms of the exfoliating element, you’ve got physical, micro-mineral exfoliants which remove dead surface cells, enzymatic exfoliators which dissolve oil debris and dull dead skin cells and chemical exfoliators in the form of glycolic, lactic (AHAs) and salicylic acids (BHA).

 



These chemical exfoliators help to gently exfoliate, brighten and purify your pores.

Designed to be used as a target treatment a couple of times a week, I was very excited to get my glow on with this bad boy.




I’ve found that of late I’ve turned primarily to chemical exfoliators as I feel that they do a fantastic job without irritating my sensitive skin, but Murad is a brand I trust so I wasn’t too concerned about the presence of physical exfoliators.

The product itself is thick and orange in colour when immediately removed from the tube.

 



When applied to clean, damp skin, you can both see and feel the exfoliating particles, however they are really tiny in size and the dense texture of the formula stops it from feeling too abrasive.

Massaged into your skin using circular motions, the formula gradually transforms from its soft orange hue to white to indicate sufficient physical exfoliation and even application has taken place.

 



At this point, leave the mask on your skin for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Skin is immediately left feeling silky and soft without any tightness or the feeling of being stripped of moisture.

As your skin has been so thoroughly prepped, it is ready to more efficiently drink in all the benefits from your serums and moisturisers, resulting in a plumper, firmer, more radiant looking complexion.

 



At £67 a bottle it is not cheap, however neither are exfoliating facials at a salon and with this tube of sunshine you’ll get repeated uses and prolonged benefits.

Bravo Murad, this has to be without a doubt the crème-de-la-crème of exfoliating treatments!

Murad’s Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial is available now and costs £67.
