The nights may be drawing in and summer brights being replaced by darker tones, but there’s no excuse for your skin to be dull this season.
New products, designed to illuminate and perfect skin ensure that you’ll glow all the way as we go into winter.
Firstly, there’s Vital Light Serum (RRP £56 / 30ml glass bottle with pump) from one of my favourite brands, Clarins.
The latest addition to a powerful collection that includes a Day Cream and a Night Cream (which I LOVED, and actually gave pretty darn impressive results), this hardworking yet lightweight serum fades age-related spots, brightens skin tone and helps to smooth and repair. Use under the original Vital Light products for faster and even more effective results.
Suitable for all skin types and available now from Clarins counters and online, I like this product as much as I liked the original Vital Light duo.
Next up, is a reinvented classic from Clinique.
I remember coveting Turnaround Cream years ago after I read about it’s fabulous ‘exfoliation overnight’ action. October 2011 sees the launch of new, improved radiance-boosting products Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturiser (RRP £34 / 50ml) and Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer (RRP £32 / 30ml).
Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer is a lightweight serum that enhances the cell renewal and maturation process, improving skin clarity and smoothness to increase skin radiance and luminosity. This is ideal for daytime or night time use.
Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturiser is more like the ‘original’ Turnaround Cream, in that it comes in a pot, and you wear it at night so it can work its magic while you sleep. Providing moisturising benefits as well as gentle exfoliation, this cream is good for those who usually find exfoliation products too drying or irritating to sensitive skin.
I’ve been using this product nightly for weeks now and can confirm the velvety texture that melts in. Immediately after applciation, my normal-combination skin feels smoother and ‘comforted’, while the overall appearance of my skin each morning is noticeably (and pleasingly) clearer and smoother.
Both Turnaround products are available from Clinique counters nationwide, and online, from 1st October.
