MY SHELFIE: @CarolineBarnesMakeUp
We have the best in beauty and the best in interiors, so it makes perfect sense we invite our industry friends to take a supermarket sweep of our showroom, select their favourite products from our clients’ collections and display them on the iconic String Pocket Shelf (available at Skandium).
When it comes to the make-up industry, Caroline Barnes reigns supreme. Having worked with the likes of Kylie, Cheryl and Rochelle Humes, she is also the UK Ambassador for Max Factor and face of her very own YouTube channel #SpeedBeauty by Caroline Barnes. A much-adored and long-term friend of Pure, Caroline did a ‘smash and grab’ in our showroom to top-up her kit ahead of an exciting trip to Los Angeles.
Take a look at @CarolineBarnesMakeUp #PureBeauty shelfie…
Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Barrel Brush There are practical hair brushes and there are hair brushes that make a real difference to the smoothness of your hair. This ionic round brush smooths out my hair like no other, I have recommended it to many friends who are also impressed with the difference it makes.
Moroccanoil Repair Mending Infusion When you have dry or coloured hair you can’t over-use oils and treatments to keep the ends soft and tangle-free, but they can often weigh the hair down. This product is amazing and perfectly smooths my hair without leaving it greasy and oily-looking.
Say goodbye to split ends with this serum
Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick I just made a YouTube video using this product. I have so many around the house and in different handbags - it’s the best nude pink shade that doesn’t drain your complexion but it's the texture that hooks you in. Soft, hydrating and so comfortable on the lips. I promise once you try it you will also want this in your make-up bag.
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint Now this is the product for your skin this summer. Many tints come out slightly pinky but this delivers a beautiful sheer tone of summer warmth over your complexion. It’s so easy to apply, has an SPF 30 and contains vitamin C, I just love it!
Medik8 CE-Thione Pro Strength Vitamin C I use Vitamin C on my skin every morning pre-moisturiser and it has certainly made a difference. I had to try a few to see which ones suited my skin first and I have had such success with Medik8. I have slowly built-up the strength and now I’m on the highest level.
Medik8 r- Retinoate This for me is the gold standard of Retinols. Non-sensitizing, it can be used day and night, absorbs quickly and delivers great results. I won’t use anything else now.
GoldenFaden MD Hands to Heart This is a fanatic hand cream that contains active ingredients niacinamide, glucosamine and retinol to better your skin’s appearance. It leaves skin feeling super-soft, absorbs quickly, is non-sticky and most of all it’s completely natural, paraben and silicone free.
Malin+Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant I’ve been let down by so many natural deodorants but this one has passed the test. I have been conscience about using aluminium under my armpits for many years so this is a perfect product I can use without concern.
Super Facialist Pure Micellar Cleansing Gel At the end of the day all you want to do is cleanse your skin scrumptiously clean allowing your night-time active ingredients to settle in. This cleanser has a wonderful jelly-like consistency and feels so lovely to massage into the skin. It dissolves all make-up effortlessly to leave my skin feeling super-clean without being stripped.
Malin+Goetz Neroli Candle This diffuses not only the room but my whole home!! The scent seems to last longer than other brands and it’s always such an appreciated gift to buy someone you love.
An explosion of orange blossom, musk and iris
Rita Hazan True Color Ultimate Shine Clear Gloss This was a game-changer for me, it’s made such a difference to my hair! It was instantly shinier, softer and actually reflected the light which my dry hair never does!
DAFNI Hair Straightening Brush Because I colour my hair it can look frizzy but I have to be careful how much heat I apply to it. This is why I love to use DAFNI as the heat is very gentle, it’s super-quick to use and achieves a great polished hair look.
Packed with Ginseng, Honey, Flower Extracts, Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E
I was super impressed with the glow I got from this botanical mask. It’s lovely to use such a natural product that achieves such great results. It’s easy to apply and would be suitable for all skin types as a weekly boost.
