Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF30

Every single day our skin has a whole heap of damaging elements thrown at it. It’s left to defend itself against UV light, pollution, weather and changing seasons all of which can have detrimental effects on the overall effect of our skin. 

Many protective skincare products only guard against damage from UV rays (which don’t get me wrong, is no bad thing!) but thanks to the latest launch from Dermalogica you can offer your skin comprehensive and complete protection from the full spectrum of damaging elements.

This advanced formula doesn’t just block out UV rays, it converts the visible light into luminosity through drone technology to give your skin a wonderful natural glow.

This light activated master multitasker uses powerful antioxidant technology to help protect skin against all of the free-radicals, pollution and environmental aggressors that our skin is forced to face every day while keeping your skin hydrated throughout the day.

Formulated with a  plant-derived moisture magnet, it connect with your skin’s surface layers to provide all-day hydration for visibly smoother skin that looks radiant and feels  comfortable.

It contains Japanese Matcha Tea which provides 100x more polyphenols than traditional green tea for exceptional antioxidant protection, helping to defend skin against pollution while a bio-ferment from Sage brightens and evens skin tone.

The broad spectrum defence SPF30 provides serious protection from UV damage so you can go about your day safe in the knowledge that your skin is not only looking radiant and beautiful but is being cared for.

Designed to be used after cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount to your face and neck, (preferably 30 minutes prior to sun exposure) and enjoy all the benefits of the potent ingredients while your skin radiates a healthy glow.

The cream itself is light in texture and possesses the most delicate citrusy, light, refreshing scent.
Easily absorbed it glides effortlessly across your skin and is absorbed really quickly.

You would barely notice that you’d used it, were it not for the ever so slightly, barely distinguishable iridescent glow left on your skin.

Beautiful, soft and brightening dull, tired looking skin it makes the perfect base for your makeup.

Dermalogica’s Prisma protect SPF 30 is available now and costs £58 for 50ml.

Calvin Klein Women Eau de Toilette

Calvin Klein Woman eau de toilette is the new spirited reinterpretation of the much loved Womed EDP and is a fragrance that radiates empowerment and optimism.  

A modern classic for sure, this vibrant new scent exudes sensuality with an empowering blend of lemon, white peony and ambrox for a fresh yet warm, feminine fragrance. 

Like its predecessor, Women EDT draws inspiration from the multifaceted identity of femininity today, the empowered reality of modern women and their myriad day to day life’s expectations.

Can we first address the bottle please because it is quite simply exquisite.

Calvin Klein Women blends the worlds of fashion, fine art and photography, resulting in a unique, contemporary and stunning vessel. 
The captivating eye featured on the bottle embodies the viewpoint of the individual woman and the collective, allowing a fresh take on limitless self-expression. 

Unlike the original, this EDT has been reimagined with a soft pastel yellow juice, a reflection perhaps of the lighter but equally powerful scent within.

As for the scent itself, I would describe it as a modern, fresh, floral-woody scent that is both bold yet possesses softer accents.

Zesty top notes of lemon, cassis buds, raspberry and pink pepper offer a light and citrusy opening while white peony, orange flower petals and rose centifolia create a softer, more floral and feminine experience.

Base notes of warming ambrox super, musks and Olibanum create a woody elegance which combined with the other elements creates a sensual, free-spirited and delightful scent.

Calvin Klein Women Eau de Toilette is available now from The Fragrance Shop and costs £36.50 for 30ml.
