Last month we received our exclusive invite to the Image Skincare launch party in Manchester. If you're going to attend one masquerade ball this year, why not let it be one that has a catwalk showcasing the latest skincare goodies? It's like a premiere for aestheticians. With the promise of a secret reveal, we jumped at the chance to be one of the first to unmask the glory.
If there's one thing I've been calling out for, it's an active cream to fix my dry and unforgiving hands. I have always been a fan of the Image Vital C range and when I got wind of this product, it's fair to say I got a little over excited. The first thing you will notice is the refreshing fragrance. That aside, the science behind the product should not be overlooked. Containing Resversatrol and Vitamin C to promote skin density and strengthen collagen it also improves hydration by up to 40% in 24 hours.
You may wonder where this trend came from? Did someone just decide to fire up this forgotten wonder after watching re-runs of Golden Girls? Actually, it's the skin genies over in South Korea that have developed the new wave of sheet masks. Korean beauty is taking the world by storm and we are pretty sure you have heard of at least one product stemming from their in recent years... remember BB creams and essences?This Korean way is to obtain a glowing, supple skin. They insist that hydration is key to maintaining a healthy skin barrier.Image skincare have developed a sheet mask using an infusion of powerful botanicals and antioxidants. The Biomolecular Mask comes in two formulas: anti-ageing radiance
and hydrating recovery
. Both provide maximum rejuvenation that is too good to miss out on.
Okay, so I know what you're thinking, another collagen drink. Wrong! I thought the same but don't be too quick to shun these pocket sized power hits. They are closely concentrated which means smaller shot sizes, with just 15ml containing all the collagen you need. No more mixing and trying to stomach your supplements before breakfast. These can be taken at any time of the day and are easy to travel around with
. It's important to point out the collagen is bovine, which personally I prefer as it leaves no fishy taste. This is an easy and quick step for the busiest of skins.
Suddenly everyone in the room gets very excited... it seems all skin therapists love to play with retinol. There's a good reason for it too. Retinol has been widely used in age management for a number of years but practitioners have always faced a struggle with retinol for sensitive skins. Not anymore, as this unique formula uses a delivery system that allows retinol to be absorbed gradually into the skin in a stable form to reduce irritation for even the most sensitive of skins.
Make up is one thing but (almost) natural beauty, well that's a game changer. Who doesn't want longer lashes and fuller brows? This unique serum not only lengthens the hair but also encourages growth and conditions to thicken.After 4-6 weeks, the eyebrows and eyelashes are noticeably thicker with no need for pencils and falsies. How do I know? Because I've used it and now I can't live without it!
We love a good lip plumper and what better way to complement the fizz than with a room full of bee sting pouts. As a self-proclaimed lipstick connoisseur, I'm the first to test it out. It has a sheer pink tint, hence the name, however this doesn't stop the men from giving it a go. It hydrates the lips giving up to 40% volume increase and helps to define the lip contours. What's more?
