Modern Mum Beauty Must-Have: Radiance

Modern Mum Beauty Must-Have: Radiance

Each month, our resident beauty blogger Erica Davies shares her beauty diary with us. This month, we find out what radiance boosting products are on her Christmas wish list.


Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is my radiance back!

Sometimes I look in the mirror and don't even recognise myself. Quite often I think, “Who IS that?” and feel slightly depressed all day. When did I start looking quite so tired? And where have those grey hairs come from?

In the run-up to Christmas, there's seriously not enough time in the day. And I am already feeling the effects – dry skin, dark circles under the eyes and hair that's dry and desperate for a stint in the hairdresser's chair.

This month I'm trying out products that will put a bit of radiance back into my tired old face and add some shine to my poor hair. Here's how I got on…

Pantene Expert Collection Advanced Keratin Repair Shampoo & Conditioner and Split-End Fuser

The shampoo smelt amazing, while the conditioner was thick and creamy. The Split-End Fuser went in easily post-wash, making my hair really easy to brush through. I would say it took a couple of washes before my hair really noticed a difference, but it definitely did make it sleek and shiny. If only it could find me some time to sort out my roots too.

Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 CC Cream

I'm all over BB cream, but hadn't tried a CC (Complexion Correcting) cream before now. As a thick and creamy base coat, it helps moisturise the skin and I found it really helped reduce redness and the appearance of dark circles – even before concealer. It gave my face a slightly more polished shade of “natural” skin, so it was great for the school run when I didn't have loads of time to faff around.

Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Cleansing System

Questioning looks from my husband aside, this system slightly intimidated me on first opening the box. But it shouldn't have done. And I can admit that now I have started washing my face with this clever device, there is no way I am going back to washing my face normally.

It exfoliates and cleanses in one whirring motion. Pat dry with a towel and I am not even joking, my skin looked fresher and brighter than it had in months. And that was just after one go. This is a game-changer. And you're not having it back!

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
