This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously.  I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart.  The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.

I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.

Summer 2014 Face Products: Clarins and Stila

Here are the two new face products for summer 2014 that caught my attention.

Clarins Hydra Quench Tinted Moisturizer and Stila Sun Gel summer 2014

First of all, there is a new product in my favourite Clarins range (I have re-purchased it several times) HydraQuench – Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15  (£30, 50 ml). The brand promises radiant skin and a natural healthy glow.

According to Clarins, their tinted moisturizer does the following:

  • Boosts the skin’s own hydrating mechanisms by stimulating the production of filaggrin, a protein of cells in the epidermis which helps to reinforce the skin’s barrier function.
  • Moisturises all skin levels with the combination of two forms of hyaluronic acid: one of high molecular weight and the other of low molecular weight.
  • Protection from UV rays with 100% mineral protection and SPF15, defence from harmful effects of pollution and protection from free radicals.
