Get Your Glow On! Our Beauty Must-Haves for Glowing Skin
Getting the summer glow is a much-desired achievement in beauty – at any time of year. In summer we want to exude that ‘just-back-from-holiday’ sun kissed luminosity – but without the aging process of actually lying in the sun and ruining our complexion for the future with harmful UV rays. Then, as autumn creeps in and we realise we’re saying so long to the sun’s rays for another couple of seasons, it’s natural that we want to keep that healthy flush going as long as possible. With this in mind, we’ve tested out a variety of products that promise to give you that gorgeous golden shimmer, with many of them hydrating and plumping your skin, while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Sounds ideal to us, so what are you waiting for? Ready, steady, glow!
The perfect skincare routine: TRI-BALM
There are three things that we love when it comes to beauty at BOE – one is natural skincare, the other is the miracle ingredient that is Hyaluronic acid, and the third is anything that streamlines our morning routine. So when we heard about TRI-BALM then we were very interested indeed…
The reason being that this is a three-in-one luxury product that a) doesn’t break the bank and b) does all of the above. Packed with 100% natural goodness TRI–BALM is a luxurious cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser all in one solid stick. The formula is paraben-free and contains no harmful chemicals, silicones or synthetics, incorporating only the best naturally derived ingredients harvested from plants, flowers, vegetables and seeds. It melts away makeup and impurities, cleanses and hydrates, and does all this without clogging pores and irritating the skin. Plus it contains Hyaluronic acid, sweet almond oil and Vitamin E which work to hydrate and plump the skin. Our new miracle hero product? It could be…
What our tester said:
“Firstly – this is more like a spa in a stick than a skincare product! It smells absolutely divine, and using it genuinely relaxed me. It was like having aromatherapy oils massaged into my skin, and I’m sure it encouraged me to breath deeper and chill out – ideal for the beginning of the day, or just before sleep.
Secondly, I’ve always been wary of multi-purpose products. The phrase ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ springs to mind – I’d much rather have separate items that do the job excellently than cobble together a group of them to do a below par job. However, TRI-BALM has completely changed my mind with this.
It’s basically a huge solid stick that combines a luxurious 3-in-1 cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser. The effect when you apply is kind a mix between a waxy finish and an oil – I wasn’t surprised to learn it had sweet almond oil and beeswax in it. You then need to rub it into your skin, and this massaging ended up being great to encourage blood to my cheeks and increase the plumping nature of the TRI-BALM. I’d avoid if you have oily skin, but for me the result was a glowing finish that looked hydrated, bright, and was so silky to touch after it had sunk in. It genuinely gave a youthful smoothness to my skin on first application, and by continuing to use it I found my complexion brightened significantly and my fine lines were lessened, especially on my forehead. And then there’s the fact it’s streamlines my skincare routine – and is ideal for taking on flights! A definite new favourite and such good value for money that I’ve been recommending it to everyone.”
