Elemis Superfood Cica Calm Booster

Shake up your skincare routine this autumn with Elemis' new Superfood Cica Calm Booster.

The new Superfood range of products have been formulated with plant based, nutrient dense superfoods and a natural sugar derived prebiotic to help replenish skin with superior hydration for a healthy complexion that glows from within.

This super cute concentrate is essentially a concentrated multi-vitamin for your skin that contains all the nourishment of an oil with the potent powers of a serum.

Designed to be used as a skincare booster, it allows you to customise your skincare regime to meet your skins ever changing needs.

Perfect for those with sensitive skin, the gentle fluid has been formulated with Cica, a herb that can be used to calm and sooth sensitised skin.

The Cica extract has been fermented to release its skin friendly compounds, allowing them to be more easily absorbed into your skin for maximum benefits.

The unique bi-phase formula also contains Agave to help leave your skin feeling soft and smooth as well as fermented rice water, Green Tea Seed Oil and prebiotics to deeply nourish and hydrate your skin.

 Housed within an extremely cute little bottle with dropper, to use simply shake the bottle vigorously to combine the formula, unscrew the topper, squeeze three drops and apply to your skin.

Massage into cleansed skin after your serum and before your moisturiser to supercharge your skincare regime, imparting a little extra TLC to dry, dehydrated skin as and when your skin needs it.

I love the idea of being able to customise your skincare regime without having to entirely change all of your products.

 Cost effective and perfect for if you skin only needs an occasional boost, its soothing scent and delicate, lightweight texture makes applying it a pleasure.

Quickly absorbed it instantly perks up dull skin, calming any irritation and soothing dry skin without aggravating it further.

After using this twice daily for a week I’ve noticed that the overall appearance of my skin has improved, as has the texture.
My skin feels softer, smoother and more hydrated for longer throughout the day.

It’s a great addition to anyone’s skincare regime, particularly at this time of year where the changing of the seasons can wreak havoc with your skin.

Elemis’ Superfood Cica Calm Booster is available now and costs £27.

Glossier futuredew

If you’re desperate for healthy looking skin that glows with radiance but are perhaps a little unsure about using highlighters or are after something a little softer then you need to try futuredew by Glossier.

This beautiful oil serum hybrid is enriched with an array of nourishing oils to offer an immediate and long lasting dewy looking glow.

Housed within the most beautiful, chic, soft pink pearlised glass bottle you’ll find a peachy/nude coloured fluid.

Possessing a beautifully subtle, soft scent reminiscent of a decadent, rich oil, this lightweight yet deeply hydrating oil-serum is perfect for creating a healthy, dewy base for your makeup.

Suitable for all skin types, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, cruelty free, vegan and non-comedogenic it contains powerful plant based extracts that work to instantly brighten your complexion both immediately and over time.

Designed to be used as the last step in your skincare regime it is a beautiful product that allows you to cheat your way to a radiant glow!

Official instructions advise applying two pumps all over your face, however due to its nourishing properties and as the owner of combination skin I would suggest starting with just one.

Silky, soft and non greasy, the fluid glides across your face, quenching dry patches before being absorbed quickly.

Skin is left with an ever-so-subtle pearly, dewy appearance.

Dull, tired skin is instantly revived and your skin is left feeling soft, comfortable and pampered.

Perfect for wearing alone or underneath your foundation, it offers a healthy glow without the worry of shiny, glitter-ball skin that you may experience when experimenting with traditional highlighters.

That said, if you ARE after a little more va-va-voom you can of course apply a little more of the serum to the areas of your skin which you’d like to illuminate more.

I think that futuredew is a great addition to your daily skincare/makeup regime and personally I love to wear it alone on days when I don’t have time to do my makeup.

It brightens my complexion and makes me look more ‘awake’ and in my view, healthier.

I would suggest experimenting with the amount of product you need to use to achieve your desired look based on your skin type as those with a drier complexions could probably get away with the full two pumps where as oilier complexions could probably get away with slightly less.

Glossier futuredew is available now and costs £23.
