A few months ago I was visiting a private dermatologist for something that was bothering me, and since I was already there and paying for the visit, it made sense to chat about all things skincare, and so we did. I have to say that the doctor looked gorgeous, and I could tell that she did enjoy her beauty, makeup and perfume.
I was curious to know which skincare with vitamin C and “glowing effect” she liked herself, and which she would recommend. The answer was – Lierac Mesolift range. Since I was already a fan of the brand, I’ve decided to try the serum and the cream.
By the time I am writing this feature, I have used up the Lierac Mésolift Serum Fatigue Correction Ultra Vitamin-Enriched Refreshing Serum until the very last drop and am have almost finished the Lierac Mésolift Fatigue Correction Vitamin-Enriched Melt-In Cream, both were incredible.
The range is targeted at those who want to address the signs of visible tiredness, loss of tone and dull complexion. That is definitely me.
The formula is a cocktail of 5 Vitamins A, C, E, B, B6 , 6 minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Potassium, plus Hyaluronic Acid and AHA smoothing citrus.
I loved the fact that both products are not ridiculously expensive, we are
I have been using Lierac Diopticreme Wrinkle Repair Cream Eye Contour for 20+ days so, I think, can finally tell you my opinion about it.
I really wanted to get a Lierac eye cream, as I have heard a lot of great things about it.
There are actually five products in the Diopti range: Dioptigel, puffiness reducing gel, Diopticerne and Diopticerne Teinte, dark circle correcting cream, Diopticreme, wrinkle repair cream, Diopticalm, soothing balm and mask and Dioptidemaq, makeup removing gel.
I’ve picked up the anti-wrinkle one, as I believe in “prevention” and that good skincare means a lot and does work! I am judging by looking on the older ladies who took a good care of their skin. By the way, I would recommend this feature about anti-ageing by Caroline Hirons.
Moreover, unfortunately, my skin underneath the eyes is showing the first signs of ageing, even though I am in the 25-30 age group.
The regular face cream just doesn’t cut it for me and I can totally see the difference when I use the cream formulated for the delicate under eye area. Totally worth the investment, if you ask me.
By no means
It is always exciting to share about the favourite beauty products of the whole year, and I have been doing so for a while, here is a look back to 2018.
When I was thinking about the favourite beauty products of 2019, I had to look back at:
And, although I had an idea of of the products I wanted to include this made it even easier. Now, most of the products I have written in details about, so I will link to those posts.
1 Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.
2. Annick Goutal Rose Pompon Perfume,from Harrods and Bergdorf. It has the notes of Bulgarian rose essence, taïf rose, peony, blackcurrent, rasberry, pink pepper, woody cedar, patchouli and white musk. And it is just my dream scent, I never want to be without it, ever.
You must be shocked, right? Rose candles and I… Linked above you can see a few that I’ve enjoyed the most this year. Need MORE!
4. Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift Concealer (review and swatches).
Brilliant product: not heavy, doesn’t sit in the fine lines, makes you look fresh and not so tired. Isn’t it what we all want?
5. The Balm Balm Desert, £17.50 here
Not only it has been featured in 2018 but also in 2017, it is my hands down, favourite cheek product, I just use a big fluffy brush to give my face some definition and to warm it up. Balm Desert is in the middle.
6. Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush
It’s that time again when I share my seasonal favourites. Here is a look at my Summer picks, in case you’ve missed it. And here is what I’ve been loving this Autumn.
- Victoria Beckham Beauty eye makeup as seen here. I’ve been looking forward to the launch of the VB Beauty line, and picked up the eye products the day they launched, and was not disappointed. I have a very detailed review (linked above) so won’t repeat myself. While I did not pick up anything else, I am excited to see what else Victoria is going to launch. There is definitely a foundation coming our way.
2. Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.
It would make more sense to publish this feature before the affordable one but the fact is, it took me quite some time to think of the best items to include in this category because, I think, this is the category most people are interested in. So here we are, all items are under £50.
2. Viseart eyeshadow palettes, from Cult Beauty.
I like Viseart eye shadows, and there are quite a few to choose from which are under £50, the one shown is the latest release, Dark EDIT Eyeshadow Palette, £30.
3. BECCA Your Glow-To Glow Primer, Highlighter & Lip Kit, £30 from Space NK.
BECCA used to be one of my favourite brands, and while I don’t follow them that much after the company was sold to EL, I still like the good old gems from them. You get Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop, Backlight Priming Filter (15ml) and Ultimate Lipstick Love in Orchid as a part of the kit. And gotta love the festive packaging.
