Top Five Products For The Winter Cruise Season
Posted by zoe-barnes in Makeup
What is cruise season? For the vast majority of people, it doesn't mean much at all since, after all, it’s an idea drawing on the winter travelling habits of a very privileged minority, created by designers so that they have a reason to sell yet more clothes to their eager clientele before the Spring and Summer seasons come along. They holiday in the Cayman Islands and St Lucia on their superyachts, avoiding tax and soaking up the sun. Now, sure, the vast majority can’t copy the cruising elite and book three weeks in Cuba, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look as though you did.
**1) 'matte Bondi' Pressed Bronzer by Nude by Nature ** - If you want that sun-kissed glow to take you through to February… we’ve got the perfect products for you. Just say your camera was destroyed by an angry dolphin and none will be the wiser. Start with a pressed mineral powder bronzer designed to capture the warmth of healthy, sun-kissed skin with a matte finish.
2) Tom Ford - Bronzing Gel - A delicately-scented bronzing facial gel by Tom Ford. This bronzing gel is a water-based oil-free formula, easy to use and easily blending with your natural skin tone and texture. Since coming back from a winter cruise means coming back to the stresses and pollution of urban life, you'll also be glad to know that this product has a calming effect that infuses in such a way as to reduce skin irritation & redness. Sun-kissed, healthy-looking skin aside, it also forms a barrier to shield skin against the effects of pollution & toxic stressors.
3) Pure Marula Oil Cell Regenerating Face Oil - African Botanics - an ultra lightweight formula that's made from pure Marula Oil - a potent, nutrient rich ingredient extracted from the Marula tree in South Africa. Packed with essential fatty acids along with Vitamins C and E, this moisturizer penetrates deep into the skin to build collagen and increase elasticity. The result is a supple, glowing complexion.
4) Butter London - Trend Nail Lacquer in Seaside Blue - The perfect colour for the beach and for the winter alike. It'll certainly keep you dreaming about the mediterranean.
5) L’Occitane - Verbena eau de toilette - Travelling through Provence you can't help but smell lemony freshness along the paths and filling the marketplaces. Verbena Eau de Toilette combines citrus notes with geranium and rose to give you a warm feeling of being away, in Provence, on the French riviera - where else do they have the gorgeous scent of verveine?
There you have it! Happy cruising - enjoy a glow that will make all your friends jealous. They’ll think you’ve only just finished washing the Bahamas sand out of your hair.
