MY 3 ESSENTIALS BEAUTY PRODUCT FOR : THE SCHOOL RUNWAY...


A - Shower oil Almond - L'Occitane
B - Second Skin Blush - Laura Mercier
C - L'eau d'Hadrien - Annick Goutal


THE SCHOOL RUNWAY
For me it’s “run to the hill, run for your liiiiives”.
And you ???



A – THE BEAUTY PRODUCT
SHOWER OIL – ALMOND
L’OCCITANE

This product is amazing.
Oil which transforms when in contact with water, into foam…
It feels wonderful on your skin, leaves a subtle scent of almond and…you don’t need any moisturizer…(so handy when in a rush...).

I would like to buy it right now…
L'Occitane Shop in High Street Kensington- W8
Any House of Fraser
Internet : Occitane.com

B – THE MAKE-UP PRODUCT
SECOND SKIN BLUSH – ROSE BLOOM
LAURA MERCIER

Ok, you drop off the children at school but you still want to look and feel beautiful (quickly, I know…).
This blush will light-up you face, with a very natural and healthy glow…
Nota : if you are not as pale as I am, go for the “Orange Blossom”.

I would like to buy it right now…
Selfridges and Cie (all the big ones really)
Internet : Lauramercier.com

C – THE PARFUM
L’EAU D’HADRIEN
ANNICK GOUTAL
Sicilian lemon – Grapefruit – Green mandarin – Cypress – Ylang-Ylang.

Not overpowering and non-offensive (your children are maybe in the car with you), L’EAU D’HADRIEN has an elegance. No sweetness here, it is a woody citrus, very refreshing and relaxing. A perfect signature-scent for rush-hour morning.

I would like to buy it right now…

    1. Thank you very much Hilary. Maybe not "perfect", but to look good, definitely yes. I can see too many mothers at the gate who has forgotten that they ARE women in the first place (before being mothers...). Best, Sixte
