Treat Yo’ Self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
Going makeup-free without looking tired might seem like a far-fetched goal for us regular folks. But it might actually be easier to achieve than you thought.| April 11, 2019
It’s been awhile since we last put out a list of beauty items you should be splurging on. If you’re in the mood to spend, there are a couple of things worth your attention, and your money.
This month, we’re highlighting everything to help you look rejuvenated. Even if you have clear skin and no pores, dullness and dark eye circles is a real issue that can lead up to the dreaded statement, “you look pale, did you rest well last night?” So keep scrolling, you’ll find a short list of products that will rejuvenate and awaken your skin. Your mornings will thank you.
111Skin Sub-Zero De-Puffing Eye Mask
Forget cold spoons and ice cubes, this eye mask will de-puff your eyes and get rid of any evidence that you snuck one too many midnight-snacks out. This cooling eye mask is also infused with tetrapeptide and marine complex that has anti-inflammatory properties, and will reduce fine-lines, puffiness, and discolouration.
Nurse Jamie Pigment Erase Bar In A Jar
Feeling a bit red? Your skin might be irritated, which is best to just leave it alone. If it’s due to pigmentation, though, then try this one by Nurse Jamie. Get your glow back with this gentle exfoliator, filled with Kojic Acid, Tannic Acid and Eucalyptus Oils that helps to reduce pigmentation.
Dr Sebagh Supreme Night Secret
Whether your skin type is oily or dry, everyone benefits from a good hydration boost. This one promises to intensively moisturise the skin, coupled with cell regeneration properties to get you that GLOW. Shh, it’s a secret.
African Botanics Marula Baobab Clay Oxygenating Cleanser
Why is clay mask back on our radar, you may ask? Well, it’s never gone off. The hype may have dissipated, but the effects have not. If you already have a clay mask you live by, stick to it. If not, this one’s worth a shot. Formulated with the Baobab fruit, an ingredient that’s rich in vitamin C, it’ll soothe, cleanse and brighten your skin.
Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Bi-Phase Peel
Don’t shy away from acids, peels can do so much more for your skin than you think. This one from Algenist even has anti-ageing properties, and is filled with microalgae oil, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid that will help in clearing up any acne.
Sunday Riley C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum
For brighter, more glowy skin, vitamin C is always the answer. It can be quite harsh if used wrongly, or too often, so consider yourself warned. Cross that bridge, and you’ll find that your skin tone will have become even, your pores appear smaller, and your skin clearer.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Brightening Face Lotion
We and so many others live for her products, so don’t be surprised if our reviews are littered with how good they are. This brightening lotion is for all those with sensitive skin, or whose skin react adversely to vitamin C. It contains all the good stuff: hyaluronic acid, ginseng extract, and vitamin E. Even out skin tone, hydrate the skin to give you that glow, all without potential irritants.
