Caudalíe Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and Radiance Tinted Moisturizer

Caudalíe Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and Radiance Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum, beauty, Caudalíe, foundation, review, skincare,

I loved Caudalíe for years, this is a truly amazing skincare brand which always delivers (and doesn't test on animals which is a huge bonus!). Their newest addition to the Vinoperfect range and much acclaimed Vinoperfect Radiance Serum* is Radiance Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum*.

This Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is Caudalíe's N°1 anti-dark spot product and has been a cult product for skincare aficionados for many years. This serum has a lightweight milky texture and does a great job at correcting and preventing dark spots, evening out the skin tone and boosting radiance. The high concentration of natural ingredients makes it perfect to counter sunspots, acne marks, scars, and damage, for a brighter, more beautiful complexion. I have only few acne scars, but when using it for a month or so I definitely saw them being reduced and my skin looking more radiant and healthy. Also, because it is so light, it's perfect for summer and this time of the year although it takes 5-10 minutes to sink in properly.

Caudalíe Radiance Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum is an oil-free and hydrating tinted moisturiser which has in-built SPF20 - a massive bonus for the summer! It is described as an "all in one skincare treatment and complexion enhancer" thanks to its pigments which blend with the skin to cover imperfections, redness, blemishes and dark spots. I am a fan of a lighter makeup base in the spring and summer (who isn't?!), so this checks all of my boxes. The only downside is that it currently comes in only two shades - light and medium - so sadly won't be for everyone. I get away with the light shade and mix it with a little bit (a drop or two) of medium when I'm having my fake tan on. I really hope Caudalíe will expand on these, because they are really amazing!

LUSH Comforter Shower Creme

LUSH Comforter Shower Creme, review, LUSH, Lush The Comforter, Shower creme, shower gel, LUSH shower

Without a doubt, LUSH The Comforter (review) is in my Top 3 LUSH products and No. 1 LUSH scent. This bubble bar has a sweet mixture of blackcurrant, dash of citrus bergamot oil and a sprinkle of cypress oil to calm and tone - it's simply perfection! Because we don't have bath tub in our flat, getting soaked in The Comforter was a rare and much anticipated luxury for me. Alas, no more! In the recently opened new Oxford Circus flagship store, among 214 exclusive new products is one which made my heart flutter - Comforter Shower Creme! Filled with the same gorgeous scent as its bubble bar counterpart and some added sparkle to shine it is my ultimate shower companion from now on. I simply love it and I truly hope LUSH will continue with its production forever!

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Haircare range

You might have noticed that Liz Earle haircare range went off the radar in the last year. That's because one of the powerful and natural ingredients Yangu Oil that was one of the main components of Liz Earle Botanical Shine Hair Conditioners and Hair Oil is no longer able to be sustainably sourced, so after much of exploration, testing and research Liz Earle decided upon Kalahari Melon Oil, which gives the same, if not better, high level performance in the Botanical Shine Haircare*. This just shows how much Liz Earle is committed to be a natural and ethical brand that it is!

The revamped range consists of five naturally active products including Botanical Shine Shampoo, Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil and three Botanical Shine Conditioners. The current star ingredient - Kalahari Melon Oil - comes from fair trade women's cooperatives in Namibia. The oil is rich on linoleic acid and omega-6, leaving the hair perfectly nourished, smooth and with a brilliant shine.

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo 
This shampoo is for all hair types, so if you are not really sure about it, you can split the cost with your girlfriend or boyfriend. It was dubbed 'Cleanse & Polish for hair' and has nourishing shea butter, natural source vitamin E and gentle naturally derived botanical cleansers to leave hair smooth, clean and soft. I love its botanical scent and how it deeply cleans my hair and scalp. (RRP £10)

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Conditioner for normal, dry or damaged and oily hair
This trio of hair conditioners is formulated for everyone's needs. Whether you have normal hair and want to keep it in tip-top condition hydrated and glossy; dry or damaged hair to give extra boost of nourishment and smoothness or oily, dull or lifeless hair and you want to leave it shiny, volumised and full of life - this is something you need to incorporate into your haircare routine! I am using conditioners for normal and dry hair and they're feeling wonderful on my hair and definitely eliminated some of the frizz I've struggled with! (RRP £10 each)

Liz Earle Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil
A final step in the haircare regime is this amazing blend of botanicals. It's a sublime hair treatment which feels luxurious and lightweight. I simply apply it to my damp hair and it instantly conditions, protects against heat damage and infuses hair with a luminous natural shine. I simply love it! (RRP £17.25)
