Dr Barbara Sturm Glow Drops


Get your glow on this summer with Dr Barbara Sturm’s gorgeous Glow Drops.

 Dr Barbara Sturm just so happens to be Kim Kardashian’s facialist and regardless of whatever you think about KK, she sure does have beautiful skin.

 It’s not that often that I see a celeb using a brand and think ‘omg I MUST own this product’, however as I wasn’t familiar with Dr Barbara Sturm I wanted to check it out.

 For those like me not so much in the know, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s unique, science-based products have achieved cult status with skincare devotees worldwide and her philosophy of healing the skin has challenged both aggressive approaches and the conventional wisdom.

At Dr. Barbara Sturm, our ethos represents the credibility of innovation without the use of toxic, harmful or aggressive ingredients in our products. We use advanced science ingredients that are healthy, healing and safe, nurturing rather than attacking living skin.

 Dr. Barbara Sturm products contain innovative, high concentration active ingredients adhering to Germany’s rigorous skincare ingredient laws. Our philosophy of skin healing also means we do not use substances and ingredients that are both unnecessary for the skin and may promote inflammation, including artificial fragrance, colour, micro plastics and aggressive preservatives.


Dr Sturm launched her first skincare collection in 2014 and while her skincare regimens are simple, the products are anything but.

 My introduction to this exquisite brand comes in the form of their Glow Drops.

 This luxurious, gentle serum effortlessly creates a fresh, soft, natural glow instantly.

Designed to revitalise tired, dull looking skin, the formula boasts anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits to nourish, protect and perfect your complexion.

 Suitable for all skin tones and types including sensitive, Dr Sturm’s Glow Drops have been designed to give your skin a summer glow all year round; transforming dull skin and delivering a dose of intense hydration from winter to summer.

 Presented in a chic, fuss free, sleek transparent glass bottle with white dropper lid, you can see the soft, iridescent pink hues of the serum within.

 The formula is impressive to say the least.

 Firstly, the serum contains Dr Sturm’s formulation of both low and high weighted Hyaluronic Acid molecules which binds moisture and replenishes internal molecular levels, providing long lasting hydration and a visible plumping effect within the skin.

 Purslane, which contains high Vitamin levels and Omega 3 Fatty Acids, works to reduce visible signs of irritation while Wild Rose Extract helps to refine pores and create a more even appearance.

 Meanwhile, Polygonum Bistorta Root (a potent anti-aging ingredient) optimizes skin tone plus the addition of light reflecting pigments provide an instantaneous healthy looking glow.


 Silky, lightweight and opulent in texture, you can actually use the drops in a variety of different ways depending on the look you’re after.

 The first way is as a regular serum. Apply to freshly cleansed skin prior to your moisturiser and enjoy the added boost of hydration while it evens out your skin tone and breathes life back into your lacklustre complexion.

 You could, alternatively, mix it with your face cream as opposed to using it alone or even apply it over makeup as a highlighter on your cheeks and brow bones for a lit-from-within effect.

 After applying a full pipette onto my fingers and gently massaging over my face, my skin feels quenched and soft, comfortable and brighter.

 I’ve actually found myself using it as a primer as frequently as I do a serum thanks to its great ability to perfect and revitalise my skin, particularly of a morning when I’ve definitely not had enough sleep.

 I do feel that the Glow Drops have got my back when my skin needs a little extra TLC and there’s something very comforting in knowing that the formula is clean and free from nasty chemicals and un-necessary ingredients such as synthetic fragrances etc.

 Hey, if Dr Sturm is good enough for Kim Kardashian than its good enough for me!

 You can check out Dr Barbara Sturm’s Glow Drops which retail from £40 for 10ml or £100 for 30ml (which is a tenner cheaper than other online retailers) over at SkinStation along with the rest of her elegant skincare line now.

Elemis Radiance Revealing Dynamic Resurfacing 5 Piece Collection at QVC


Treat your body to the ultimate top-to-toe pampering with this fabulous five-piece Radiance Revealing Dynamic Resurfacing Collection from Elemis.

 Available at an incredible price until the 24th July exclusively at QVC, this carefully curated edit of some of Elemis’ hero products, there’s everything you could need to pamper and indulge both body and mind with some serious skin and body care luxuries.

 That’s not all though.

 You can tailor this special TSV Pre-Launch to your own personal preferences. Oh yes!

  PLUS it contains the brand new Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Super-C Serum.

 The 5 piece set comprises of:

  ·       Dynamic Resurfacing Face Wash

·       Dynamic Resurfacing Super-C Serum

·       Pro-Collagen Marine Cream OR Pro Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30

·       Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Milk and Frangipani Monoi Velvet Body OR Lime & Ginger Bath & Shower Milk and Lime & Ginger Velvet Body Butter

·       Elemis branded flannel headband

  The Dynamic Resurfacing Face Wash boasts an enzyme foaming gel formula that gently exfoliates your skin, removing pollutants, dirt and impurities to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion.

 The skin-refining formula is infused with patented Tri-Enzyme Technology, antioxidant-rich Moringa and hydrating White Truffle to effortlessly resurface the skin whilst supporting its natural microflora.

 The Dynamic Resurfacing Super-C Serum is a newbie to the Elemis line up and is set to be your new skincare BFF.

 This silky, decadent, clinically proven lightweight serum helps to reduce the visible signs of pigmentation, dullness and dark spots to brighten and lift a tired, uneven looking complexion.

 As with the cleanser, the serum features the same tri-enzyme technology and is formulated with a highly stable Vitamin C derivative to brighten.

 It is also blended with powerful skin-brightening actives including Red Clover Extract, Mediterranean Mullein Extract and a unique Swiss Alpine Blend which together hydrate, smooth and perfect your skin.

 Ultra concentrated, non greasy, quickly absorbed and gentle, it is going to be your go-to-skincare tool for a brighter more radiant, even looking complexion.

 The choice is yours when it comes to your face cream with a choice of either the multi-award winning  Pro-Collagen Marine Cream or a Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with SPF30.

 Both Moisturisers are iconic in their own right and feature a cocktail of three seaweeds (padina pavonica (a marine algae), porphyridium and chlorella, plus ginkgo biloba, rose and mimosa) to drastically increase hydration, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin feeling smoother and firmer.

The only difference is one contains the added benefit of broad spectrum SPF 30 to protect your skin throughout the day from the suns harmful rays which can cause premature ageing.

 Once you’ve finally made that decision, you’ve another to make!

In this comprehensive collection you'll receive two of Elemis' most beloved body care formulas, their Bath & Shower Milk and Body Butter. 


 Each rich in moisture, they'll help to care for your skin in and out of the shower, working to keep it silky-smooth and soft, as well as beautifully fragranced.

And this is where you’ve got a decision to make as there are two tantalising scents to choose between.

 Are you more of an exotic, floral  Frangipani Monoi kind of person, or do you find yourself drawn to the zesty, refreshing warmth of Lime & Ginger?

 Honestly, I’m not sure I can pick between the two.

 Personally, I adore the lime and ginger scent to wake me up and revitalise my body and senses of a morning and would then reach for the opulent Frangipani Monoi of an evening to deeply relax and pamper a tired body and mind, but ultimately the choice is yours.

I love the inclusion of the cute flannel head band in this collection.

 Creating the impression of an at-home-spa, this soft easy-to-care-for flannel is perfect for keeping your hair out of your face (and skincare products) while indulging in your chosen pieces.

 This awesome collection is valued at £232. I know, I know, but the Dynamic Resurfacing Super-C Serum costs £95 alone.

 However, you know how this works by now guys and gals.

 You can get your very own set for the QVC Special Launch price of just £69.96 plus P&P.

 Yep. Less than the value of just the serum by itself. Madness right.

 Available exclusively at QVC UK until 24th July, you can purchase outright or using 4 easy payments to save yourself a stonking £162.04.

These are going to go fast guys so don’t hang about!
