5 March Beauty Products You Need To Know
2 March 2022
Hello Pisces Season! And hello Spring…we’ve been waiting for you with some anticipation.
Do you know what else we’ve been eagerly waiting for? This beauty edit! Without further ado, read on to discover the beauty products that have got our beauty editors smiling from ear to ear this month.
Armani Sì Passione Eclat
Say Sì to passion with the latest launch from Armani – Armani Sì Passione Eclat.
Eclat is a french word which means dazzling brilliance – and this brilliant sparkle is certainly evident in this bold new Armani Sì flanker scent. With a bottle that gleams with the passion and shine of a fiery ruby-red stone, we predict that lovers of Sì will be lining up to add this to their collection.
This scent combines a bright blackcurrant accord with a duo of lush roses – Centifolia and Damask.
The Centifolia rose is also known as “Cabbage Rose”, “Provence Rose” or “Rose de Mai”. Particular to the French Perfume capital of Grasse, the Centifolia rose is prized in perfumery for its clear sweet fragrance of light honey notes. Damask Roses are often referred to as “Bulgarian” or “Turkish” roses but are actually the official flower of the Island of Maui. Used in Morocco as part of “Ras El Hanout” spices, they’re also used to give the distinctive perfumed taste of Turkish Delight. Dreamy…
But enough on rose history, although it’s easy to get completely sidetracked by the beauty of scented roses… especially in this fragrance!
Si Passione Eclat’s journey into fragrance passion continues with notes of Bergamot, White Musks and Vanilla.
Described as a “luminous rose-floral” with a “sensual heart of roses”, this is a fragrance which encourages its wearer to be strong – and conquer the world with confidence and grace. Bold Modern Femininity? Responsibly Sourced Ingredients? Allbeauty is so here for it.
BABOR Peptides Power Serum Ampoules
What packs more effectiveness into your skincare serum…?
Having it pre-measured out of course!
These luxe glass ampoules from BABOR contain highly concentrated fluids. Each ampoule is designed to provide you with a skincare experience which in the words of BABOR, is perfect for “every skin type and condition”.
The BABOR Peptides Power Serum Ampoules contain organic silicon and hyaluronic acid to help stimulate your skin and activate natural skin renewal. To be used on the face, neck and décolleté, pat the concentrate gently onto the skin to help rejuvenate and elasticize the skin. Who needs to have the facialist on speed dial when you can be your own spa star?
Now that’s what we call living the luxe life.
Valentino Coral Fantasy
Valentino Born In Roma Coral Fantasy is the latest fragrance to light up the Born In Roma line. If you’re in need of a refresher on this couture Italian fragrance range, these include Born In Roma & Born In Roma Yellow Dream for Donna (Women) and Uomo (Men).
You may be asking what makes Coral Fantasy fresh, new and exciting…
Whilst Yellow Dream is inspired by the hustle and bustle of a Roman sunrise, this fragrance invites you to partake in the splendour of a Roman sunset. Top notes are Kiwi and Brazilian Orange and middle notes are Rose, Ambrette (Musk Mallow) and Indian Jasmine.
The sunset reaches its spectacular climax with base notes of White Musk and Texas Cedar.
Our Verdict? Book us on a one way ticket to Valentino’s sun-kissed Roman fantasy.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil
From Rome to Provence…
This sumptuous L’Occitane en Provence Almond Shower Oil is a soothing blend which will transport your mind to the South of France. Enriched with radiant sweet almond oil, this huile de douche transforms into a milky veil when in contact with water. Ultra nourishing, the scent of almonds and vanilla is just delicious!
Good to know – this product was the winner of a Stylist award and is also Vegan Friendly. L’Occitane is a brand which prides itself on its commitment to sustainability – this shower oil is also available in a 500ml Eco Refill.
Kérastase Chroma Absolu Shampoo
Calling all colour-treated beauties out there – you may have seen the beautiful lilac packaging of Blond Absolu and wished that there was a toning solution from Kérastase for you.
Well, Kérastase has listened and now they’re ready to deliver!
New for 2022, the Chroma Absolu range is a new range for “Serial Colourers” – we’re talking about the people who love experimenting with colour on their hair but don’t love damage.
These shiny bottles hold a formula powered by a trilogy of ultra-caring acids (Tartaric, Amino and Lactic, if you’re curious) and Centella Asiatica.
Chroma Absolu Bain Respect (left in the image) is a gentle hydrating shampoo for fine to medium hair in the form of a pale creamy rose gel. On the right, in the transparent bottle, Chroma Respect Bain Riche is a clear, rich and nourishing shampoo for medium to thick hair.
Both shampoos offer intense hydration to soften the hair fibre. This results in reduced porosity, meaning that hair colour is protected for longer. Both formulations are also free from nasty ingredients – Silicones, Sulfates and Parabens.
To use, wet your hair, making sure to remove any excess water before applying your shampoo. Then add water to emulsify, and massage into the scalp to remove impurities. Rinse thoroughly before applying again to the lengths of your hair. The second application will produce a more abundant lather and foam which will help cleanse your hair.
Intrigued? The range includes 7 products – other highlights include strengthening conditioners, masques, a gloss and a hero product for brunettes, which removes red and copper undertones. Discover the range here.
Join us in April for more sass, more smiles… and more beauty of course!
