YOU…BUT BETTER – 4 BEAUTY MUST-TRIES TO GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS SUMMER

“You…but better” is an easier strap-line to wear and “be” than “You…10 years younger”, wouldn’t we say? It got me thinking…

If someone asked me for the Top 20 products I circle back to, time and again, the four here would probably be on that list.  If you’ve already spotted them but haven’t tried them yet, here’s why I think they’re year-round beauty stars.

AMELIORATE TRANSFORMING BODY LOTION. Aka a skin revolution in a large tube, this stuff works. I don’t have keratosis pilaris (that annoying, unsightly mini-bumps chicken skin that loves the back of arms – nightmare in summer) but if I did I’d be on to a tube of this in a minute.

We gave this body lotion a good test-run during the Beauty Shortlist Awards and it also shone as an overall general body lotion even if KP wasn’t an issue with some of the judges – it leaves a glow of a sheen on your skin and isn’t greasy and it’s one of those products rather like Oskia’s Renaissance Hand Cream (coming up below) that improves your skin the more you use it.

So all hail Ameliorate for creating this product which I know has been a lifesaver for many who’ve battled this irritating and often confidence-diminishing condition for decades and have finally discovered something that genuinely does work. It’s landed at M&S so you can pick one up there, too.

 

DHC Liquid Eyeliner #LOVE

Yasmin Le Bon is a fan of eyeliner dotting (here she is chatting about the eyeliner dot trick and beauty and life while Lisa Eldridge works her magic on her). So if you love an ultra-fine eyeliner, Japanese brand DHC have basically nailed it.  This is one of those makeup items I feel a bit bereft without.

NUXE LIP BALM – not much left to say about this one! The French lip balm icon with a subtle grapefruity taste. There’s often a mini pot of this lurking somewhere in my bag/room/on my desk.

HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST HAND CREAMS – EVER…

Pinned down to choosing one hand cream for the rest of my life then OSKIA’s Renaissance Hand Cream might just about be it. Not only is this a lovely rose and chamomile formula but it’s probably the only hand cream that actually made my hands look younger the longer I used it. An investment buy but if your hands need help and expect this to make a visible difference over time.
