So what were the cult beauty products seen everywhere backstage this season? Here are the top three...
Evian Face Mist - This product was definitely a hit with the male models as I heard several requesting it back stage at both the James Long and Tim Soar shows at LFW!
This is a 3 in 1 product to moisturise and tone whilst re-hydrating the skin. The Evian Face Mist is a great prep product to refresh stressed out, tired skin. I also saw a few artists using the Evian spray to slightly moisten their sponges before using them to blend cream foundations.
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate - I saw this stashed in many kits this season and here's why. Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate is a brilliant all round moisturiser that is particularly great for rescuing dry, flaky, dehydrated skin to give you a smooth and nourished canvas to work on.
Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleansing Solution - Yep another french brand with a cult following so next time you hop across the channel stock up. The Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleansing Solution is a super gentle, fragrance free, calming cleanser that performs.
I did a little investigating to find out what makes this popular cleanser so great so here's the science bit... "Solution of fatty acid esters, both emulgatory and filmogenous, enables dirt to be emulsified and surface hydrolipidic film to be reconstituted.Soothing and emollient, thanks to cucumber extract.Non detergent, non foaming, neutral pH. Soap free."
Let me know what the staples are in your kit that you couldn't do with out come fashion week. I would also be interested to know what you think of these products if you use them so leave a comment if you have something to add!
