The Côte d'Azur Essentials of August

Written by Yasmine

Hello August. Let's bring the glamour of the french riviera back home. Being inspired by the glamour of the film festivals, we have gathered the new must-haves of products rich in hydration, moisture and protection. Here is a great list you have to try to enrich your bathroom cabin a la Côte d'Azur.

Sunday Riley Ice Ceramide Moisturizing Cream
The Cermaide enriched moisturiser from Sunday Riley is a must-have for your dry skin. The soft cream gives your skin a lasting hydration and strengthens the natural moisture barrier against environmental stressors responsible for premature aging. The cream uses beetroot and coconut extract to pull hydration into the skin, while ceramides, vitamin F, and pomegranate sterols strengthen the skin's natural moisture barrier, sealing in moisture. Not to mention Lipid, that is created naturally by our skin, and helps form the skin's natural moisture barrier. Sunday Riley notes that without the right correct ratio of ceramides in our skin, the skin may become dry, dehydrated, itchy, crepey. Apply the rich but lightweight cream morning and night, to lock in your moisture. Find your new face cream bestie here.

The scent of a glamorous filmfestival can be achived at home with the new YSL Libre, Absolu Platine. Releasing this fall in Europe, the iconic couture gold Cassandre, is now in a preciously infused bottle with a silver metallic texture. The bottle, is said to encapsulate a unique metallic trail with the highest concentration within the LIBRE range. This new perfume, has top notes of aldehydes, bergamot, mandarin, with a base of vanilla and amber. It also includes Diva lavender - originally from France that brings a fresh and cool aroma. Together with orange blossom from Morocco to create a warm, floral fragrance. The ultimate sensual fragrance crafted that lasts from day to night.

Protect your skin even in the end of the summer, from the sun's harmful rays with Ultra Facial UV Defense SPF 50. A good sunscreen is important all year around, even in the cloudiest days.

These essence‑soaked pads from Sensai helps hydrate your skin around the eye and mouth for instant revitalisation. To give an intense hydration and renewed radiance. The treatment pads is soaked with Koishimaru Silk togetther with advanced CPX Vital Extract that targets the five major skincare ageing concerns – dryness, sagging, fine lines, wrinkles and dullness – while Advanced Energy Charge Technology energises to help beauty resurface. With one 10‑minute application (I usually use them much longer), the skin is visibly revitalised, youthful and silky smooth to the touch. They are definitely the best eye pads I have tried so far.

Color Wow Snag Free Pre Shampoo Detangler
After a long summer, our hair can be a bit more detangled and worn out. To easy untangle the hair and reduce wear, we can use the new Pre-Shampoo Detangler from Color Wow. Use it before shampoo to not only help detangle your hair, but get clarifying and softening properties. The soft gel contains Pracaxi oil and Color Wow's exclusive Profaxil-18 complex that together help eliminate frizz and make hair more manageable. With a small amount of coconut oil that moisturizes dry curls and prevents wear. The result is shiny, frizz-free and moisturized hair. Find your new hair routine here.
