Treat Yourself this Spring

In our experience, many women refrain from treating themselves to high-quality cosmetics because they feel guilty or like they shouldn’t be spending money on themselves. However, I think most families would agree that when Mum is happy, the rest of the family is happy too, which means that you should definitely be treating yourself this Spring! Today, we’re taking a look at five of our priciest products, which are worth every penny and would make a good investment to make Mum happy.

Decleor Extreme Brightening Essence – £44

These clever little capsules provide a targeted 30 day treatment to intensively brighten the skin. The essence is a powerful tool against dark spots of hyperpigmentation and contains anti-oxidant properties to actively regulate the skin’s pigmentation process. This may only be a month’s worth of product, but we think you’ll be hooked well before the 30 days is up!

Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules – £65

These Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules come in two varieties, a rose capsule to be applied in the morning and a lavender capsule to use at night. The combination of the two helps to moisturise and nourish the skin. Formulated with the optimum level of anti-oxidants they help improve the visible signs of ageing and replenish moisture lost due to the effects of everyday pollution.

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 – £58.50

This product from Dermalogica is a true multi-functional cream, offering absolute hydration and defence against the internal and external causes of skin ageing. It offers a broad spectrum SPF for excellent protection from the sun’s harmful rays and blends into the skin for a smooth, perfected finish.

Decleor Lift and Firm Day Cream – £56.80

This anti-ageing moisturiser from Decleor comes in two varieties – one for normal skin and one for dry skin. Both provide deep moisturisation and a radiant glow. Key active ingredients include L-PROLINE complex to help reactivate the skin’s firmness, iris essential oil to boost the skin’s elasticity, and high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids to fill in wrinkles on the surface and deeper down.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream – £80

This Marine Cream is popular with so many people, celebrities included, and has been proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and reverse the signs of ageing within just 15 days. Elemis consider this their ultimate anti-ageing cream and have included ingredients derived from some of the most powerful marine elements.

Let Pure Beauty look after your hands

Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Hand and Nail Cream

We exposure our hands to external factors such as pollution, UV radiation and harsh washing up chemicals every day, but how often do you actually really give them the TLC they deserve, and need? We know to take care of our complexion and our body, but our hands seem to fall by the way side which is a shame because they are one of the first places to show signs of ageing.

One a day by day basis, when you wash hands use a gentle soap, wash all suds away, dry with a clean towel and moisturiser as often as you can.

Once a week, use a scrub to exfoliate away the dry, rough skin away and invigorate life into your hands once again. To do this wash your hands with lukewarm water, then massage a small amount of scrub over your skin, working in circular motions. Rinse it off with warm water, and apply a moisturising hand cream.

At Pure-Beauty we have some gorgeous creams that can be used every day, and we are sure there will be one that is perfect for you.

The Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Hand and Nail Cream is new to us but are already in love with it. The nourishing cream is delicately scented and thanks to a blend of fantastic ingredients, it offers long-lasting comfort for all skin types. Thanks to the ‘Elemis Promise’ this product contains no parabens, no Sodium Laureth Sulphate, no mineral oils and no artificial colours, which we think is brilliant. Used on a regular basis the cream will soften and sooth your hands and support the delicate moisture barrier that is so often compromised, which we think is a pretty good combo.

For an everyday winner, look no further than the Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand and Nail Treatment. Provitamin B5 has been combined with Algae Extract and Sweet Almond Oil to help heal dry, rough hands and provide a barrier against the environment. Ginkgo Biloba and Grape Seed extracts plus Vitamin E neutralise free radical activity, guarding against further damage. The overall effect means softer hands and stronger nails.

The Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream has a smooth, luxurious texture and simply melts into the skin. Milk Protein, Avellana Seed oil, Omega 7, Camellia, Virgin Plum and Macadamia lock in moisture. Litsea, Jasmine, Magnolia and Vanilla mean yours will hands not only smell amazing but they will look and feel youthful, radiant and soft to the touch.

If you are looking for a rich, beautifully fragranced hand cream that offers long-lasting, intensive protection, you need the Elemis Jasmine and Rose Hand and Nail Cream in your bag and by your sink. Why does this cream work? Well, argan oil, which is rich in Vitamin E, has been added and this improves moisture retention to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Abysinnian Oil replaces lost lipids, while Jasmine and White Lotus Flower Milks soften and calm dry, sensitive skin and the results are just outstanding.

Seeing ladies, is believing, so why not get in touch today and we will be only too happy to help.
