Contains ad links and gifted products.
So far May has given us amazing weather in Copenhagen which means my white legs are on display. They are going to need some help not looking like two pale baguettes – enter Madame La La self tan. I’m going for the ‘light’ version since I’m white as a ghost and the light version should offer a subtle glow and leave skin looking sun kissed in only 3 hours. The tinted mousse sinks in quickly and it’s infused with hydrating skincare benefits like coco water, aloe, green tea and vitamin E – plus built in skin finishing perfectos. Sounds like a plan!
The most important product this time of year is sunscreen and this is not just any cream. Madera’s ‘Plant Stem Cell Age-Defying Sunscreen’ has SPF30 and ensures broad spectrum protection and the formula contains patent-pending stem cells and delivers a hyperdose of antioxidants, shields against urban pollution and although slightly tinted, 100% invisible on skin.
Lottie London ‘Stamp Liner’ in a new wing edition so you can create perfect winged eyeliner in no time. The liner has a pointed felt tip on one end and a wing shaped stamp on the other which makes it a lot easier to create symmetrical flicks.
Morning and night cleanse you skin with Korean Caolion Pore & Makeup Cleansing Stick. Apply on dry skin and massage gently to turn the balm into oil, then add a few drops of water to lather into a foam and rinse.
