Beauty Wish List



I tend to take more notice of beauty bloggers than journalists. I know I know, that sounds like such a sweeping statement, but I personally feel that bloggers are more honest than beauty journos, so therefore don’t really get excited by beauty pages in glossy magazines anymore (apart from Allure of course). But on a rather long plane journey recently I was sat with September’s Vogue– can I just say how AMAZING Daria Werbowy looks on the cover- that tawny golden hair, that nose ring that Balenciaga jacket! I digress, I digress. Anywho, I was browsing through the beautiful pages of Vogue when I reached the Beauty section and one page in particular had me reaching for my iPhone notes as it was scattered with products that I actually really really need want. Now this post would be a little boring if I just parroted back Nicola Moulton’s piece so I’ll just talk about a few products from my Vogue wish list along with some other beauty bits which I’m desperate to try.

Le Weekend De Chanel £72

Pricey I know, but this bottle of chic Chanel goodness promises to rejuvenate complexions, calm blemishes and generally give your skin a bit of a kick (in a good way) come Saturday. Packed full of glycolic this serum is top of my Christmas list.

CND Vinylux weekly polish and top coat both £10 each

CND, the parents of Shellac have finally brought out a non gel based nail product, one that wont give the more fickle of you commitment issues. Vinylux promises to give you a chip free manicure for one week, so that you don’t have to worry about your talons in the working week. As a massive fan of CND shellac, but a less than massive fan of removing the stuff I can’t wait to try this out!

Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo £13.50

Philip Kingsley + dry shampoo = must have. Trichologist Kingsley has just added a dry shampoo to his renowned hair care range, and as I have particularly long and thick hair I loathe washing my hair, so eeking out an extra day without the thick white spray and sickly smell of Batiste (sorry guys- just not a fan) sounds like a dream…

REN clear and calm clay cleanser £18

I’m on the hunt for a new morning gentle cleanser to purify my skin and rid it of pesky blemishes. It might be the name ‘clear and calm’ which has sucked me in but I feel like this needs to become a fully functioning member of my skincare regime ASAP.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair II £48 

A souped up version of the original which I never tried, this promises to basically sort out your skin no matter what issue you’re dealing with. I feel like I can’t beat Caroline Hirons’ review so I’m not even going to try. All I know is that I want it!

So…anyone got a spare £231?
