Halloween is less about horror these days and much more about good, old fashioned glamour: get your vamp on with these bewitching products and be the belle of the Halloween ball…
Ditch the deathly white face paint and choose dewy skin for this year’s Halloween party. Dermalogica’s Phyto Replenish Oil works in three ways to strengthen, hydrate and shield for healthy, luminous and dewy looking skin: it strengthens the skin’s natural barrier; it hydrates to help fine lines; it shields against free radical damage.
As the seasons have switched, combine glamour and luxury with real results: Karin Herzog’s Body Shimmer, a shimmering, super-hydrating cream for the body, is fragranced with a divine cocktail of winter berries and summer citrus – perfect for your Halloween celebrations.
Time to banish those wrinkles in time for the witching hour. Elemis Pro Collagen Hydra Gel Eye Masks are clinically proven to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Potent plankton extract provides an instant skin-tightening effect, whilst hyaluronic acid hydrates the fragile eye area. Eye contours are left looking visibly smoother and feeling intensely moisturised and, as results can be seen for up to six hours, they’re the perfect pre-party pick-me-ups.
Are you partying all week long? Extend your Halloween hairstyle with Redken’s Pillow Proof Two Day Extender. Extending the life of blow-dries, it corrects product over-use and transforms hair from day-old to amazing with hair powder to absorb oil and instantly refresh hair. Go from a worn-out blow-dry to refreshed, full-bodied matte texture.
Sensitive skin might be feeling spooked about the extreme doses of make-up required for Halloween. Take action if your sensitive skin flares up with Ren Skincare’s Evercalm Rescue Mask. Designed specifically to combat over-sensitivity, it will calm, soothe and moisturise, instantly alleviating the key signs of sensitive skin. Formulated with Ren’s exclusive active complex, this ultra comforting rescue mask will strengthen the skin’s protective moisture barrier, aid recovery and increase the skin’s ability to cope with stress, leading to the long-term wellbeing of your skin.
There’s nothing glamorous about parched hair: Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil has been formulated to treat the needs of dry hair. Use as a pre-shampoo treatment this Halloween and enjoy ultra nourishment and control. Apply up to four drops to mid-lengths and ends, then comb through before wetting your hair and applying your usual shampoo directly over the top. Or you can use this product as a leave-in treatment for an ultra shine boost on dry or coloured hair. Apply just one drop to the mid-lengths and ends after conditioning, then comb through and style.
Halloween can strike fear into those with more mature skins: caking on the make-up isn’t always kind to a grown-up complexion. Instead of layering-up the foundation, treat your skin to a face oil for mature skin that is formulated to restore hydration and leave skin feeling regenerated; a face oil that reduces fine lines for a toned and luminous look. Elemis Pro Definition Facial Oil uses raspberry plant stem cell technology and Himalayan gentian extract to nourish and even the skin tone. Omega rich evening primrose and organic barbary fig oil (high in essential fatty acids) supports the skin’s lipid barrier to help lock-in moisture for all day hydration, leaving skin feeling nourished and resilient.
High shine lips? Happy Halloween! A slick and icy gloss finish is ideal for Halloween glamour. Try New CiD’s iGloss in Moonstone, a gel formulation for a lightweight, cushioning effect on the lips, providing a non-sticky, high-glam shine that really lasts. No tricks, all treats.
