Despite my love for false eyelashes, liners, shadows and mascaras, I have pretty sensitive eyes. They get hot and runny if it’s cold, if it’s rainy – basically all the time, so when it comes to eye makeup removers, I have to be super careful!
Vichy’s new Purete Thermale Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover has been an absolute lifesaver for me. The dual formula completely dissolves even my most dramatic makeup looks without any stinging or burning. Instead, the cleanser feels cooling and nourishing on the eyes. To use it, I simply shake up the bottle then squeeze a little onto a cotton round. I then press the cotton onto my eyes for a couple of seconds and wipe off. Vichy completely eradicates any sign of makeup, meaning that after a quick swipe, my eyes are completely clean, and they feel very soothed – perfect!
Vichy Purete Thermale Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover for Sensitive Eyes is priced at £11.00 and is available here
I don’t think I ever realised how very important sunscreen is until I lived in Dubai. The difference in skin between sun worshippers and those who darted in and out of the shade was startling, and I pretty much instantaneously decided that perfecting my tan shouldn’t be at the top of my priorities. Don’t get me wrong, I love a light golden glow, but anything deeper makes me feel a little anxious.
Thankfully, Vichy have made getting a little sun super easy with their Ideal Soleil Dry Oil in SPF50. As a rule, I only use oil sunscreens on my legs and arms, and I love that Vichy’s offering comes in a spray bottle which makes getting to hard to reach spots a piece of cake! You only need a couple of spritzes of the lightly floral fragranced oil per limb, and it easily soaks into skin leaving a lovely dewy glow. I love the fact that it’s SPF50 too – it means I can apply it in the morning and not really worry about it for an hour or two before I need to top up!
Vichy Ideal Soleil Dry Oil is currently on offer in Boots for £12.37 (was £16.50) and similar here (US)
