Latest Updates
Saturday, October 16, 2010
After many requests from readers, I thought it was about time to put up here what beauty products I use. I apologise in advance for those male readers who may find the following post boring, but in our industry the men have to take care of their skin just like the women do, so you never know - you may learn a few things on here that may pique your interest.
All the products here I genuinely use, no one is paying me to endorse them (I wish!) and I’m not going to recommend a product here that I think you guys might like that I don’t use. This is what works for me, and may not work for you, so if you can I suggest you try to get samples from a department store before parting with your hard earned cash. I’m also going to split this post into face and body, just because I think it’s far too big to combine into one post.

As you can see, I own a lot of Aesop products. They’re a Melbourne company, and have branches in the US, Europe, South East Asia and Australia, but frustratingly they don’t have a place to purchase in Dubai. If I can, I buy it all in Singapore as it’s the best price, plus they’re the most generous with samples and have the best product knowledge out of all the branches.

Fabulous Face Cleanser - Very versatile, I use this with pleasure every day. Low foaming, and it doesn’t totally strip your skin, it doesn’t leave it with that tight feeling after use which I hate.
Bitter Orange Astringent Toner - I didn’t buy this – my mate Oz was using it for about a week and didn’t find it worked for him so gave me the rest of the bottle. I'm generally satisfied with this product, but nothing to overly rave about...

I use the B Triple C Facial Moisturising Gel when I’m out during the day in Dubai in the summer, or at night before going to bed. It’s good for combination skin, and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. It’s very fast-absorbing and has a honey consistency. I wouldn’t use this under make up though.
Primrose Facial Hydrating Cream - I use this as a general moisturiser, this is what I put on before my make up when I have work. I also use this occasionally as a daily moisturiser during the Dubai winter.

Clinique Gentle Exfoliator - Have been using this once a week since my Abinitio training, and I’m very happy with it. Simple and effective and does what it says on the tube.

La Prairie Cellular Revitalising Eye Gel - I have to admit I went through a bit of a La Prairie stage, but this is one of the few products that remained in my face care routine after my switch to Aesop. It's cooling, and gives a nice base for applying your eye make up under.

Creme de la Mer - I know this is super expensive, and I always wait until I’m in Duty Free before I buy one. After toning I check to see which areas are especially dry and flaky and use a small amount of this to target those areas. It’s also great if you have broken skin, from sunburn peel or acne, and you need it to heal quickly. I use this in addition to the Primrose moisturiser as a base for my work make up. Because I stretch it out and only use it for this a 30ml pot will last me 2.5 years.

I love both of these – they’re great to use mid flight over makeup, and to generally wake myself up during a Red Eye flight. I love the results of the MD Formulations Moisture Defence Anti Oxidant Spray but love the smell of the Aesop Immediate Moisture Facial Hydrosol.

Blistex Intensive Moisturiser - Probably the cheapest thing on the list, this works so well. Use it liberally during the day outside of work, and use whatever lip balm I can find if I’m about to put on my work lipstick as a base.
