Protect & Defend with Chanel La Solution 10 & UV Essentiel

Did you know that as many as 1 in 2 women globally claim to have sensitive skin?  That’s an astounding statistic, and it means that everyone of us would have experienced sensitive skin at some point in our lives, and can identify with the redness, itchiness and stinging sensation often associated with overly-reactive skin.  And it is no wonder as we live in polluted cities and stressful lifestyles, all leading to increased levels of skin sensitivity.  To help care for our skin, Chanel has introduced the new La Solution 10 to soothe and defend against external aggressors.  I have been using it with the newly formulated UV Essentiel, which not only further protects the skin, it also stimulates skin’s natural protective power.

5 Beauty Hacks to Get You Through Party Season!

Multi-taskers!  This is a whole new skincare trend that has grown into a very useful part of my life ever since these beauties were introduced to me.  As the festivities pick up in pace, I find it ever more useful to be able to skip steps in my beauty routine, especially if I’m doing a quick costume change in between day and night events.  My skin is no longer so young that I can afford to completely cut out proper prepping and priming though, so it is critical that the products I choose fulfil their basic skincare function perfectly, and on top of it, prime my skin for makeup so I can get to the flawless stage faster!  There are 5 that I’m currently loving, let’s take a look at them today!

Guest Post by Memoiselle: Top Skincare & Makeup Picks!

Hello my dears!  I’m taking a much needed holiday with el hubs for the next couple of weeks, and I’ve asked a few friends to fill in for me while I’m away.  I thought this would be a good time to introduce some local bloggers to you, and indeed you may find some (if not all) of them familiar!  In any case, to kick things off, I’d like to introduce my good friend Meryl who blogs over at Memoiselle.com.  She is one of the nicest and most generous person I know, and was a great help to me when I was still finding my footing as a blogger.  Enjoy!

You know summer’s-a-calling when stores start displaying their sunscreens in the windows, and a whole new “improved” crop make their happy faces seen.

Today, I’ll be introducing sunscreens from Radical Skincare, Shiseido, Kiehl’s, TheFaceShop and Creme Simon!
