I know you ladies adore your beauty posts but here’s a nice little change of pace with some of the latest skin products on the market to give you silky soft skin ready for a face of makeup! I’ve been trying out No. 7′s Protect & Perfect Eye Cream, Vichy’s latest spot fighter and a foaming face wash and dry skin moisturiser from La Roche Posay.
I’ve been using No.7′s Protect & Perfect Eye Cream for over a month now and I’m kind of on the fence about it. This is a non-greasy, easily absorbed eye cream that has served me well each night over the past weeks, but not well enough that I’d be rushing out to purchase it again. Apathy is an unfortunate by-product of so-so products and this one is a prime example. At €22, I’ll definitely be looking around for an alternative when this runs out, but that’s not to say it’s not a good eye cream. It’s just not a great one.
Vichy’s brand spanking new product Normaderm Hyaluspot (€10.00) is aimed squarely at spots which seem to forget I’m not 18 anymore and pop up when they feel like it. So lucky me, I had a few to try this out on for research purposes! These claim to stop spots in their tracks and get rid of them within 48 hours. I didn’t find my spots had disappeared but this definitely worked at drying them out and ending their reign of terror quicker than normal!
Finally, I love, love, love these two new offerings from La Roche Posay. The brand new Physiological Foaming Water (€14.75) sounds very high tech but is basically a beautifully light facial cleanser for even the most sensitive skin. This foams up with one pump and disappears onto the skin when mixed with water. It effectively removes all makeup and leaves your skin babysoft and non-irritated. I loved this because it’s so light and easy to use and is a fantastic product for anyone who sufers with prickly skin with some cleansers.
Not content in spoiling us with that, La Roche Posay have also released a beautiful new face cream aimed at severly dry skin. Nutritic Intense Riche (€20.50) is another complete win and felt gorgeous on my eternally dry skin. This was a winner because you’re skin feels heavily moisturised but doesn’t look in the slightest bit greasy. I loved this and have been using it every night for the past few weeks and will very happily continue to do so!
