For perfect skin under the sun
We propose that you refine your beautiful face this instant. Because, even though you’re an expert on all things makeup, nothing will ever be as seductive as a sublime complexion. Below, we focus on how to get a healthy glow, as well as a matte complexion. Let’s get to it!
Here, we are bestowed with a new beauty jewel. French label Gemology melds precious stones and natural extracts to deliver powerful formulas. Our elixir of choice among the lot? The new Concentré Péridot. The preciously green peridot stone, rich in magnesium, is reduced to powder, and then combined with hyaluronic acid for an invigorating, energizing, and relaxing effect. The latter makes for a lightly scented oil, which turns into a serum once applied on the skin, for an instant healthy glow.

Shine be gone
Because cosmetics awaken our many senses, Vichy introduces this gem that not only feels but also smells delightful. The Normaderm Total Mat Gel feels fresh upon application, and melts instantly to complete its mattifying mission. Despite its invisible nature, this solution hydrates the skin all day long. And whatever the day has in store for us—heat, humidity, stress, or physical effort—it neutralizes shine. What’s its secret? Micro-powders that absorb excess sebum. The result? A lasting, refreshing feel despite the 30+ degree weather. We’re ready for you, sun!

It’s true: Decléor proposes a purity-endowed solution for combination to oily skin. From the Aroma Pureté series, conceived to oxygenate and restore balance to shine-prone skin, this purity tube tackles imperfections. Entirely natural essential oils target nasty blemishes and make them disappear. Thus, to do away with red blotches, using the roll on applicator, we apply this formula on the area to treat up to five times a day. Yes, indeed, since the brand thought of everything, the ever light Imperfections Roll ‘On can be appliedover our makeup for a shock treatment!
Thermal water is our precious beauty and comfort secret come the warm season. But here comes L’OCCITANE, which awakens our senses and transforms our beauty routine. Our new favourite: the Angelica Hydration Face Mist, which smells divinely like nature. After washing our face, this rainfall bursting with organic angelica extracts quenches our skin. In addition to being an excellent moisturizer in the morning, this mist holds our makeup in place and refreshes our skin all day long. Thus, we’ve decided to adopt it from morning ‘til night.
