Our skin changes with the change in weather and other factors like pollution, blue light, UV rays and more. This Autumn Beauty Expert decided to investigate how everyday life can affect your skin. BE has curated a selection of skin protecting products that will protect your complexion against the environment this Autumn. The selection also includes some of the products that will make your skin look healthy and radiant if you want to fake that summer glow a bit more.
- Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser | £28 for 100ml
This is a cleanse & exfoliate in one product suitable for all skin types – sensitive, dry, mature & combination. The cleanser has Camellia Oil as one of the main ingredient which is packed full of Omega 9 and Vitamin E. This rare oil has been used in Japan for centuries as a skin cleanser and conditioner. The cleanser also has Rose extract that helps the skin to retain moisture. Its rejuvenating and restorative properties make it particularly beneficial for sensitive or lack-lustre skin.
- Super-gentle cleansing action for dry, delicate and sensitive skin.
- Alcohol and detergent-free formula maintains the skin’s natural oil and pH balance.
- Hydrating properties leave skin soft and replenished.
- Gently lifts away eye make-up.

This is the first product I tried from Pai Skincare and oh I’m so in love! I need to explore this brand more.
- Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask | £32 for 50ml
I have been using this radiance Renewal Mask for over an year now and I absolutely love this. This mask contains glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid and tartaric acid that gently work together to remove dead skin, improve texture and skin tone. The mask improves hyper pigmentation and skin looks brighter with every use. The full size mask comes in a plastic bottle with a pump so its hygienic and the texture is like a thick orange gel/paste. There is a slight tingling on skin when you apply this and that’s because its an AHA mask but the tingling settles after few minutes and its so worth it!
This mask is able to eliminate dead skin cells, resurface the top layer of skin to visibly improve skin tone and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Acne scars, hyperpigmentation and areas of sun damage are also visibly reduced. Once removed, the Radiance Renewal Mask reveals a brighter complexion that appears smooth, firm and uniform.
- La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Allergy | £17.50 for 40ml
I was first introduced to this cream earlier this year when I experienced sensitivity on my skin. My skin could easily turn red and itchy but this cream was so soothing and provided relief when it was needed most.
This expertly formulated daily face cream is great to alleviate dry, sensitive skin. This provides instant and long-lasting relief from dryness and irritation.
The ultra-mild, moisture-rich formula is free from unnecessary chemicals and additives that can cause inflammation. Skin feels calm and smooth with the look of redness and inflammation visibly reduced. Skin is less sensitive with continued use of this cream.
- Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil | £52 for 100ml
If you know me, you would know that I have a thing for gold. I love gold in my skincare and am always excited to try anything that says Gold. Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil contains small gold particles to illuminate and highlight the skin. This shimmering oil is scented with Ylang-Ylang and Orange Blossom that smell absolutely divine. The oil improves elasticity while softening and smoothing dry skin.
- Shimmering body oil with Gold particles
- Restores suppleness, elasticity and tone
- Softens and strengthens the skin
Mineral Cosmetology – Omorovicza’s unique mineral delivery system enables a powerful blend of minerals to be absorbed by the epidermis and dermis in exceptional levels. Day after day the skin feels firmer, more supple and younger-looking.
Gold – A powerful anti-inflammatory, repairs accumulated micro-damage to repair and strengthen the skin.
Apricot Kernel Oil – Rich in vitamin A, softens the skin and supplies essential nutrients to the skin.
Calendula Oil – Heals and repairs the skin.
Once you start using this, you will be addicted. The oil not only makes your body look more glowy, radiant and beautiful but also smells calming and is nourishing to the skin. With so many skin benefits, this beauty enhancer is definitely worth the splurge!
- Filorga UV Bronze Mist SPF 50+ | £29 for 60ml
Filorga is not a new brand to me. I use one of their essences and I love that. This comprehensive, anti-ageing treatment shields skin against sun damage while enhancing a natural tan.
The ultra-lightweight, water-resistant invisible formula veils skin with a refreshing burst of Hyaluronic Acid and Micro-Encapsulated Glacier Water to tone and hydrate, while photo-activated technology delivers high level protection against UV and IR damage to prevent premature signs of ageing.
Moisturising polysaccharides work in tandem with Vitamin H to improve skin radiance, promoting a more even and sublimated tan. Skin is left feeling revitalised and smooth with optimum defence against sun burn and radiation.
- Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan | £29.95 for 150ml
Vita Liberata Ten Minute Tan is an organic cream formula that delivers natural-looking, streak-free colour in just ten minutes. This is fortified with anti-ageing ingredients, including Matrixyl 3000, Rose and Neroli and is suitable for all skin tones. The easy-to-apply self-tan supports collagen production and infuses skin with long-lasting hydration, whilst giving a hint of bronze that slowly develops over 4-8 hours.
Its innovative Odour Remove™ technology eliminates the unpleasant fake tan smell. This is ideal for the face and body to achieve radiant, flawless colour that can also be reapplied to intensify.
You can leave this for 10-15 mins for a soft golden tan but upto 15-25 minutes for darker results. The tan stays longer compared to some other tanning products available in the market. This is even great for autumn when you want to flaunt that summer glow and tan for a bit longer.
You can achieve a flawless, streak-free even tan with the Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt. This is ideal for use on the face and body. The mitt is reusable as well as washable and features a super soft surface for effortless application of tanning solution. The results are flawless and your hands are protected from staining as well. This tanning mitt is a perfect companion to Ten Minute Tan by Vita Liberata.
- Elizabeth Arden FourEver Bronze | £28.99
This 4-in-1 compact comes with bronzer, contour, highlight and blush powders. These shades add natural-looking warmth to your complexion whilst enhancing your best features. These powders also absorb excess oil to give the skin a healthy, matt finish.
These powders have skincare benefits as well. Each ultra-refined powder is infused with soft focus, micro-fine particles to diffuse light and blur fine lines and wrinkles, and a dose of Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Vitamins to lock in moisture whilst protecting against premature ageing.
These can be used separately or swirled together and applied all over to add natural warmth to face. The bronzer gives a healthy sunkissed complexion and the blush adds natural looking flush to the cheeks.
- Imedeen Time Perfection Tablets | £79.99 for 120 tablets (currently £59.99)
We all know good skin comes with good nutrition. However, our skin goes through lot of damage through environment and pollution. If our diet doesn’t have enough nutrition, our body is not able to fight against signs of ageing.
The unique and natural-based formulation used by Imedeen has been proven to help repair the skin from within while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin appears more defined with better structure and moisture retention than ever before.
All these were sent to me in a very sturdy large size beauty bag with a little secret pocket inside for any essentials. The bag also had a pink luggage tag by Omorovicza. Its just Perfect!
