Our February Top Five
8 February 2021
Bringing you the latest in Beauty!
February may be the shortest month of the year, but it sure manages to pack a lot in! Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year, Pancake Day, The SuperBowl… there is a lot going on, even if we can’t get out and about to fully appreciate it.
Born in February? Maybe you’re a cool Aquarius (09/01-19/02), in which case you’ll find celebs like Bob Marley, Ashton Kutcher and Oprah Winfrey in your ranks. Born later in the month? Famous Pisces (19/02-20/03) include Rhianna, Justin Bieber, Albert Einstein and Eva Mendes.
February gets its name from the ancient Roman festival of purification, Februa. As the last month of Winter, it’s a good time to think about a Beauty spring clean and we, of course, are here to bring you the Fresh, Trending and the New in our February Top Five!
This little number is a tool and a treatment all in one! The neck and décolletage areas are oft-neglected so we are excited for this new launch from Dermalogica, which has been specially formulated for the skin on these fragile areas.
Featuring a metal roller as part of its design, It has a lock on, lock off mechanism activated by twisting the top of the product. This enables you to distribute the serum within onto the roller and apply in a massage motion to your neck and other areas. Dermalogica advises you to tilt your chin up as you do this, and to ensure that the serum is applied in a thin layer from the decolletage to the jawline, massaging the roller across in the off position.
Packed with peptides, polymers and antioxidants, we will definitely be taking this product for a spin this February – we have the time to dedicate to it!
We know Miranda Priestley famously critiqued the concept of florals for Spring, but after the Winter we’ve had, we are CRAVING flowers in all their glory! Spring Florals, we are ready for you! And that includes floral fragrances!
Usher in lush greenery and meadows of blooming daisies with this Limited Edition from Marc Jacobs – Daisy Spring. Featuring a cute pistachio green bottle, this scent includes bursts of Pink Rosebuds, Palisander Rosewood Blossom and Spicy Cardamom, for the ultimate in elegance and freshness.
Benefit have expanded on their POREfessional range with a makeup setting spray! If you’re not familiar with the POREfessional range, this includes three primers (available in Original, Pearl & Hydrate) Agent Zero Shine (a mattifying pro powder) and the Matte Rescue Gel. This new product is the first ever setting spray sold by the brand and considering the current need to juggle wearing a face mask, video calls with breaks outside, this could definitely be a solution to awkward make up mishaps and smudging!
Presented in teal packaging (featuring the POREfessional detective, of course) with two caps, it can be used in the morning to set makeup or throughout the day to give a refreshing boost.
A lightweight, microfine mist which hydrates the face, it helps to lock on makeup and soften the look of pores. Alcohol-free, pleasantly scented and weightless – this is one to add to your benefit collection!
The classic Philip Kingsley Elasticizer has cult status. Having been created for Audrey Hepburn as a backstage beauty hair reviver, this deep conditioning hair treatment is beloved by beauty editors around the world. It’s not often you can say that a product has been specially developed for Hollywood Royalty! The brand regularly brings out Limited Edition scented variants of the original and Egyptian Jasmine & Mandarin is all new for 2021!
Sweet Egyptian Jasmine is paired with refreshing Mandarin Zest to supercharge your hair care routine. When used once a week as a pre-shampoo treatment, hair is left silky, sleek and shiny.
