Weekly Worship: Dermalogica, Environ & Illuminum

Illuminum Rajamusk review

Price: £100.00 / $150.00 100ml

I am obsessed with fragrances. I own a million perfumes that I've collected over the years and I struggle to part with every one of them. Researching unique fragrance brands is one of my favourite pastimes and, up until recently, Illuminum was a brand that went undiscovered. It is a British fragrance brand that launched four years and is most famous for creating Kate Middleton's wedding day scent, White Gardenia Petal.

I recently got hold of the brand's Rajamusk scent and I have fallen in love with it. Containing the perfect blend of fruits and flowers, Rajamusk features top notes of pear blossom and redcurrant, middle notes of lily of the valley and violet petals and base notes of white patchouli and musk. The scent is weightless and feminine and contains a mixture of sweetness and spice.

Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer review

Price: £38.50 / $46.00 22ml

Stockist: Liberty / ULTA

I am a huge fan of Dermalogica's Age Smart Skin Perfect Primer, so I was really excited to try the brand's new Redness Relief Primer. I am glad I did because, in addition to creating the perfect base for makeup application, this primer has really helps reduce the redness around my nose and cheeks.

The Redness Relief Primer contains silicones that smooth the skin and strengths skin's natural barrier protection. It is formulated with oat extracts and oat kernel oil which help to reduce inflammation and soothe skin. This serum also has a green tint which helps counteract any redness and balance skintone.

So, if you suffer from redness and sensitive skin, I can't recommend this enough!

Environ Intensive Revival Mask review

Price: £49.50

Stockist: Harvey Nichols

Environ is famous for producing results-packed products and the brand's new Intensive Revival Mask is no exception. Unlike most face masks, this one is incredible lightweight; it has a thin lotion-like consistency and is fragrance free. Although it is formulated with hero active ingredients, lactic acid, asiatic acid and mandelic acid, it works well on those with sensitive skin.

Now, the Intensive Revival Mask doesn't provide instant results, however it does work wonders for your skin over time. After applying this mask twice a week for the past month, my skin has become firmer, healthier on the whole and problem-free. I love it!
