Michael Kors Turquoise

Turquoise is the gorgeous new, fresh floral fragrance from Michael Kors.

Light and refreshing, this sophisticated yet breezy scent is beautiful and perfect for sunny spring and summer days.

Inspired by water, it contains a unique note called Fleur de Sel. “Fleur de Sel,” French for “flower of salt,” is an element traditionally harvested from the cerulean waters off the French coast and offers an element reminiscent of the scent of salt in sea air.

Top notes of water lily, refreshing cucumber and lime zest immediately soothe the soul and brighten your day before mid notes of Jasmine, fleur de sel accord and wild orchid combine to create a creamy floral experience.

Base notes of musk, ambrox and cedar wood round off the fragrance leaving a delicate, woody and smooth scent.

It is a really gorgeous scent and somehow manages to be both distinctive as well as delicate and addictive yet light.

I LOVE the bottle too; turquoise is such a pretty shade and I love the uniqueness of the shape of the bottle too.

Michael Kors Turquoise is available from The Perfume Shop now and 50ml costs £62.

BareMinerals Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum

Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum is one of four new corrective treatments from cult brand bareMinerals.

These targeted treatment serums have been designed to treat different skin concerns, such as age prevention, skin volumising anti blemish and there is also an age prevention eye cream.

Each hero product contains mineral-ignited ingredients combined with different botanicals and naturally derived ingredients to create a powerful, gentle and effective treatment. 

Now I’m in my thirties, skin ageing is one of my primary skin concerns so I opted to try their Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum (£42).

This particular corrective helps to address the early signs of ageing such as fine lines, skin fatigue and rough textured skin while renewing your skin’s natural luminosity through a variety of powerful, botanical ingredients.

Key Ingredients include;

Manganese: A mineral used to help support skin’s defense against signs of ageing.

Vitamin C: A valued nutrient used to help increase skin luminosity and radiance.

Chai Hu Extract: Referred to as the “harmony herb”, Chai Hu is known to help enhance skin’s resilience and resist visible signs of ageing.

Olive Leaf Extract: Used for centuries to promote beauty and wellness, and valued today for enhancing skin’s vibrancy.

Youth Peptide: Designed to help combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The serum itself (aside from being a bugger to photograph!) is gorgeous.

Housed within a simple yet chic, heavy glass bottle with a precision dropper the milky white serum almost has an iridescent quality to it.

Lightweight and instantly absorbed it immediately brightens your skin and is particularly brilliant at helping to make you look more vibrant and awake of a morning!

It possesses a really delicate scent which actually is barely noticeable and leaves your skin feel soft and smooth from the first application.

Designed to be used after cleansing and prior to moisturising, I’ve been using it twice a day for a month and I’m really thrilled with the results.

I love that you can see an immediate difference when using the product in terms of your skins luminosity and after 4 weeks of use my skin is noticeably softer, feels more toned and generally looks more vibrant.

While I can’t say that I’ve noticed a huge difference to my fine lines, they’ve certainly got no worse and I reckon that due to the overall appearance of healthier and more radiant skin they are perhaps slightly less noticeable.

If you’re on the look-out for a new anti ageing serum then I can highly recommend the new bareMinerals Brilliant Future Age Defense and Renew Serum which is available now and costs £42.
