Every day beauty editors test a huge number of products, choose the best, weed out the worst and make their own fair verdict. But among these personal bestsellers there will always be those that cannot be replaced. No matter what new product comes out, you still return to the store for a particular coveted jar. I'm talking about five remedies, without which I can no longer imagine my morning.
Foam for washing deep cleansing Dermaclear Micro Foam, Dr. Jart +
On contact with water, Dermaclear Micro Foam gel transforms into a delicate creamy foam that smells of minerals and lemon oil. I use the product at night after micellar water as a second step in my cleanse. Foam removes the most persistent makeup from the first try, and most importantly, moisturizes the skin and does not injure it. The gel contains bio-water, which removes impurities and saturates cells with necessary microelements.
Price: 2 120 rubles.
Correcting face cream CC Red, Erborian
The miraculous transformation from green to beige - this is how Erborian corrective cream transforms me from Fiona to Cinderella. This CC cream is an advanced concealer with a tinted effect (it has a very fast and high quality fusion with the skin tone). Particles of a special green pigment that, in contact with the skin, transform and reduce the appearance of redness and the effects of acne. The composition also contains an extract of tiger grass "Centella Asiatica" (soothes the skin, helps to improve its elasticity), glycerin (moisturizes, prevents dehydration) and vitamin E (antioxidant).
I have oily skin, and the consistency and texture of CC Red is lighter than BB cream, so the product does not "float" off the face. It is not for nothing that the corrective cream is called “weightless”: on the skin it is light as a veil! I like that the product moisturizes the skin very well (you can say goodbye to peeling), evens out the tone without clogging the pores. I apply it under a BB cream or foundation: just put small peas in the places you want to mask. I drive the cream in with my fingers for the best effect (the sponge eats the product).
Don't rely on CC cream to perfectly correct redness (this is color correction, not masking), so it is better to apply additional products on top of the deficiency - for example, concealer.
Let me remind you that natural tone is still the leading trend in makeup. Therefore, even one CC cream will be enough to make the skin well-groomed, moisturized and rested.
Price: 1 730 rub.
Dry shampoo for dark hair Dry Shampoo Dark Tones, Moroccanoil
Dry shampoo is a truly magical remedy! It is indispensable in cases where you need to freshen up your hair and there is not a minute to wash your hair. And, of course, dry shampoo is the best helper if you need to emphasize the structure of the hair and give it additional volume.
I wash my head every two days, but the volume will not be seen the next. At this moment, I do not despair, because dry shampoo comes to the rescue. It is like a cleansing spray that instantly refreshes and revitalizes hair, reawakening yesterday's styling. To distribute the dry shampoo evenly and not leave you with a white bloom, keep the bottle away from the hair roots - gently separate the hair with your hands and spray the desired areas with shampoo.
Remember the saying: Bigger isn't better? So in the case of dry shampoo: a small amount of the product will revive stale styling, while excess shampoo will make the curls sticky and dull.
If you just spray your hair with dry shampoo, the miracle won't happen. To make the product work, try to apply it along the parting and always gently massage the scalp in these places - the dry shampoo will absorb excess sebum and refresh the curls.
It contains ultra-fine rice starch which makes the spray a powerful cleanser. It absorbs sebum and styling residues. Hair looks clean and voluminous, as if you just washed your hair and styled it. I shake the bottle, spray shampoo spray on the hair roots and parting, massage the scalp as if using shampoo. Then I lift the strands with my fingers and wind the curls on the brushing (I have it 35 mm). Voila - fresh hair look with salon styling.
Dry shampoo was released in two forms: for dark and light hair.
Price: 2 200 rubles. (205 ml.)
Brush-highlighter with the effect of shine Touche Eclat, shade shade Luminous Radiance, Yves Saint Laurent
Bestseller Touche Éclat by Yves Saint Laurent (adored by Victoria Beckham, Naomi Campbell and other stars!)
Means Touche Eclat, Yves Saint Laurent became the forerunner of the fashion for highlighting concealers in sticks with brushes - and still does not give up its positions. Despite the name, it is an effective face concealer that perfectly conceals under-eye bruises and gently highlights the prominent parts.
The ideological successor to the notorious YSL Touche Eclat is a twist-out highlighter concealer in a brush handle that can be used on all areas of the face where you need to add radiance urgently. The product is applied thinly - it will make really dark circles lighter and thus refresh the look, but will not completely cover them. But Brush-On Glow works well as a light highlighter.
Price: 3 064 rub.
Emulsion urban protection SPF30, Skin Regimen
This fluid evens out skin tone, restores its radiance after two uses, and also protects against UV rays. The composition contains many useful ingredients: dandelion extract (protects against the effects of impurities that provoke inflammation and oxidation), mica particles turn the fluid into a primer (visually even out the relief and skin tone, providing an instant improvement in appearance). The lightweight, oil-free texture is instantly absorbed and leaves no sticky residue on the skin, so I jump straight to makeup.
The composition also contains a longevity complex: all organic extracts of superfoods and high-tech molecules (wild indigo, maca berries, spinach, carnosine) have a good effect on the skin. They counteract the effects of stress and factors that accelerate aging (increase cortisol, promote proper DNA methylation, neutralize free radicals).
Price: 6,000 rubles.
