It is literally un-moveable – which means no more nipping to the bathroom and looking at your reflection in horror as you appear to have morphed into Alice Cooper! This setting spray’s incredible and ever-growing fan-base speaks for itself.

Since discovering SkinCeuticals some time ago, the brand continues to be one of my all-time favourites. This brand truly deliver on their promise every single time! Two key ingredients of which we all need to keep using are vitamin C and E. Combining 15% pure vitamin C, 1 % vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid, this formula offers exceptional results, turning around dry or age-affected skin and transforming it into a complexion of utter smooth radiance. Additionally, you can expect high protection from free radical damage and continual cell-regenerating qualities. Awesome!

Look no further than the Foreo Luna or Luna 2. I was given this cleansing brush several years ago to try and it has been my skincare lifesaver. Not only does it achieve clear and smooth results, but I have found by applying my favourite skincare ingredients and working them in with this brush, my skin has never looked more incredible! Love this! Also – bonus points for the awesome colour, right?

6 Of The Best Beauty Tools You Need In Your Life Right Now

Hey Lovelies!

2019 is here and there’s never been a better time for clearing out your beauty cupboard and replacing yesterday’s skincare saviours with brand new innovation that is sooo much better. Check out the 6 best beauty tools that will transform your complexion. I’ve tested these products and if they were an ice cream, they would be Bailey’s Haagen Dazs (instead of the outdated refrozen vanilla in the bottom of the freezer – you get my point).

1.Sarah Chapman’s The Facialist, £28, cultbeauty.com

Although this looks like something a Star Trek Voyager crew member may point at you, it’s actually something far more useful. This quirky little device will literally transform your complexion. The facial massager simulates the same movements as that of Sarah’s celebrity-adored signature facial. Not only does it achieve a significant lift and radiant glow, but the clever tool also makes light work of ridding toxins and puffiness. Hooray!

2.Foreo Luna 2, £169, www.foreo.com

This has to be my best beauty tool and when I remember to use it, I never fail to reap the compliments. It makes such a difference to my complexion; not merely cleansing, but it also successfully targets and treats various skin concerns (particularly irksome fine lines). One trick I have is to add facial oil or serum and the little gem works all of those awesome ingredients into my skin. I love you Foreo Luna 2.

3.The Beauty Blender by Beautyblender, £17, www.cultbeatuy.co.uk

Everyone who loves makeup should own one of these priceless beauty tools. Perfect for use on any makeup, this gadget seamlessly creates that much sought-after flawless finish. #Nomorestreaks!

4.Skin Roller, £42, swissclinic.co.uk

Good quality derma rollers (when used correctly) can really work wonders on the skin. I’ve tried quite a few products by Swiss Clinic and they never fail to impress. Swiss Clinic’s Skin Roller combines 540 micro needles of which effectively work to trigger collagen production, improve circulation and stimulate the formation of new skin. Within a couple of weeks of use, wrinkles appear reduced and my complexion looks and feels amazing! I love this.

5.19 Momme Housewife Silk Pillowcase, £26, www.lilysilk.com

I can’t state enough just how much I cherish my silk pillowcase. If you don’t want premature creases and wrinkles (DUH!) the silk pillowcase is the way to go. Your skincare products will stay on your face (rather than be soaked up by the pillow) and you will find you awaken without the dreaded indent that’s made itself unmistakably known in a glaring diagonal fashion across your face! I thank you oh wondrous silk pillowcase makers! Check out this one at www.lilysilk.com

6.Dyson Airwrap, £449.96, qvc.co.uk

Want luscious locks without the painstaking truth (that you are slowly destroying your hair with heat)? Dyson’s Airwrap’s genius technology has made it possible for us to enjoy incredible hairstyles – but without using extreme heat. #hairgoals!

The Best At-Home Gadgets worth Their Weight In Gold

Hey Lovelies!

As a beauty editor I have to test all of the latest beauty devices, so I thought I’d share with you the best at-home gadgets that truly are worth their weight in gold. Read on:

1.For Acne/Blemishes Try Tria Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light, £179 (Was £199), www.triabeauty.co.uk

triabeauty

There’s no need to suffer from acne – this awesome device delivers acne-destroying blue light that targets pores and eradicates the bacteria lurking underneath the surface of the skin. Also combined is a cleanser and spot treatment to further address the problem. What’s so great about this product is that you know you are effectively treating the problem without causing irritation or hurting your skin with harsh chemicals used in other acne-reducing products.

2.For Cleansing Try The Foreo Luna 2, £169, wwwforeo.com

foreo.com

I absolutely love this device. The Foreo LUNA 2 doubles up as an outstanding cleanser and anti-aging tool in one. It’s brush head is 50% larger, thus achieving super-fast cleansing, and offers 8000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute. This amazing gadget makes quick work of ridding your skin of impurities, whilst simultaneously targeting and treating fine lines and wrinkles. There’s no messing about with the LUNA 2 – it delivers on its promise and you will notice a significant improvement in your skin (and the compliments you receive). Furthermore, one charge enables up to 450 uses, so there is very little faffing around.

3.For Hair Removal Try The SmoothSkin Muse, £319 Was £399), www.smoothskin.com

smoothskin.com

Known as the intelligent IPL for good reason – it works. I have to say this product goes far and beyond my expectations of any at-home IPL device. This Gold Winner of the Beauty Awards, 2017 is the answer to your hair removal woes. Fast, effective and virtually painless, the gadget makes light work of breaking the hair cycle and preventing regrowth so problematic stubble becomes a distant memory. Yay!
