I am lucky enough to get to try and review a whole load of beauty products during the year. Some of them are gifted to me, other I purchase. Some of them are new releases, other have been on the market for many years already. Not all of them deserve a long-lasting spot on my bathroom shelves but the following ones do. 
 
With the heat of summer now behind us (well, not quite yet though) and fresher days coming our way, I’ve rounded up my latest beauty finds to make sure that natural summer glow lasts as long as possible. 
 
GIORGIO ARMANI – NEO NUDE FOUNDATION

The Best Beauty Products we tried last month
I’m not a big foundation user. I like a natural glow and often feel like foundations are too heavy and just too much for my very natural look. But I do like an even skin tone and I’m always on the look for lightweight textures which can help me achieve the perfectly flawless nude look.  This new water-based foundation is exactly what I love: a breathable formulation which offers coverage and unifies the tone but with a glowing and natural finish. 
 
An innovative gel foundation that reveals a complexion glowing with freshness and radiance. We love the dewy finish and fresh aqua-gel texture. 
 
Available in 3 shades
 
HKD 530
Available at ARMANI beauty boutiques (Chater House, ifc mall, Pacific Place, ELEMENTS, K11 Musea, Festival Walk, APM, New Town Plaza, Tuen Mun Town Plaza, YOHO mall, Landmark North) and ARMANI beauty counters (Lane Crawford TST and Times Square, SOGO Causeway Bay and TST, Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar, Beauty Avenue)
 
 
 
HARLOW – SKIN GLOSS

The Best Beauty Products we tried last month
Like I was telling you right above, I love a fresh and dewy look. This product is just perfect for that! With it naturally nourishing (thanks to the raw cocoa butter and organic Canadian beeswax it contains) tick stick texture it brings a hint of hydrating colour on your cheeks (but also your lips and eyes if you wish) and gives you a natural glow. 
 
Available in four shades:
Naked, sheer glossy
Blushed, soft rosy glow
Warm, subtly bronzed
Natural, Apricot sheen
 
Cherry on the cake, the brand only uses pure and whole ingredients sourced from social enterprises, keep the ingredient list of each products sweet and short (12 ingredients or less) and avoid plastic.
 
 
HKD 290
Available at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong.  
 
 
 
CLARINS – DOUBLE SERUM

The Best Beauty Products we tried last month
Not all my latest beauty finds and crushes are new products and Clarins’ Double Serum, celebrating its 35thanniversary, is definitely not a newbie. It was about time I give a go to this award-winning serum which formula has been trusted and perfected over the past 35 years to make your skin look visibly younger and provide instant radiance. I love the botanical scent of the product (a Clarins’ signature) and the immediate revitalizing effect and glowy finish it procures. 
 
And if you are afraid a serum will make you skin look oily, this one won’t! Two-third of the formula contains water-based ingredients while the remaining one-third is oil-based which is a ratio similar to the skin’s hydrolipidic film making it easy for your skin to absorb and for the ingredients to better penetrate the skin and boost its 5 vital functions: regeneration, nutrition, protection, oxygenation, hydration. 
 
HKD 650 / 30 ml
HKD 900 / 50 ml
Available online and at CLARINS Skin Spa, 2/F, Central Building, Central
