Afternoon delight: You may look weird wearing a sheet mask on a plane, but your skin will thank you


Holika sheet mask

Tomorrow I’m flying to Dubai and while the journey is sure to be comfortable (thanks, Turkish Airlines!) not even the roomiest seat can combat the dry, dry, dry airplane air. I’ve given heavy-duty moisturizers and facial mists a go on previous long-haul flights, but it’s time to try something new: a sheet mask applied mid-flight. The Holiday Vita A mask from South Korean brand Holika Holika caught my eye, as it nourishes and hydrates skin and there’s 10 per package, meaning I can keep using them daily throughout my trip—I’ll be checking out Le Château’s new store in Dubai—and on the flight home. Sure, I may get strange looks from my seatmates when I cover my face in a sheet, but it does mean that no matter what turbulence may occur, all that hydrating goodness is staying on my skin.

Kate Middleton may wear many vibrant colours (bright blue being at the top of that list) but we’re quite fond of her other favourite go-to: dove grey. Today she wore two different dresses in shades of grey while out exploring the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park, home of the awe-inspiring Uluru/Ayer’s Rock. While the Duke of Cambridge spent the day in an all-khaki ensemble (fitting for a very hot day spent in the desert) Kate started the day in a custom Roksanda Ilincic dress. The sleeveless, asymmetrical dress is similar to the one Kate wore upon arrivial in Los Angeles in 2011, but less formal in both fabrication and silhouette—making it ideal for an afternoon spent at the National Indigenous Training Academy, watching your husband learn how to handle a two meter long traditional hunting spear.

So much happened in Australia this weekend! When we last saw them on Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George had just arrived on the continent and the royal trio certainly had a busy Easter weekend. First up, the couple visited the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, where Kate Middleton joked about Prince William using some just-shorn alpaca fur as a toupee—and thus causing a thousand royal reporters around the globe to burst out laughing. The afternoon was spent on the beach, where’s Kate’s wardrobe choice for the day—a cream lace eyelet dress by Zimmermann and Stuart Weitzman wedge sandals—didn’t miss a beat. Though the royals did miss a chance to try surfing… Read more »

Afternoon delight: SkinCeuticals’ Phloretin CF antioxidant gives good skin


SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF

Antioxidants are one of those products that you don’t really know you need to use until an expert lectures-slash-informs you, and then you’ll wonder how your skin’s survived this long without. Think of antioxidants as a super-packed serum: You apply it post-cleanser and pre-moisturizer, so your skin can really absorb all of the vitamins within. For SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, this includes 2% phloretin, 10% L-ascorbic acid (that’s Vitamin C) and 0.5% ferulic acid, which work to brighten and tighten skin, encourage cell turnover (hello, more collagen!) and, most importantly, protect against damage from UVA and UVB radiation. If you’re just getting on the daily SPF train or are still feeling guilty about sun exposure from your teenage years, this antioxidant is for you: it can actually help repair past sun damage and works best when paired with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to keep future damage at bay. Plus, I really just like how it feels when I dab it onto my skin.

Sorry, we’ve been staring at Prince George’s chunky little legs all morning. Even Kate Middleton called him a “very podgy baby” this week (a posh way of saying pudgy, really) and who are we to disagree? That kid has adorable on lock! Which is probably why yesterday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their last day in New Zealand away from the public, doing their own thing with Baby George. However, today the royal tour is back on, and with it, two new looks from Kate Middleton. Read more »

Afternoon delight: René Furterer Dry Shampoo


Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo

In this new shopping column, our editors share the daily must-haves they’re lusting for IRL.

Dry shampoo is a must when you colour your hair as often as I do (the less you reach for actual shampoo, the better!) but not all are created equal. Inexpensive drugstore brands get the job done, sure, but when you’re in the mood to splurge, René Furterer should be your go-to. It’s softly scented—somewhere between a luxe fragrance and essential oil—so you’ll never feel overpowered by product. Most important, however, is how well this baby works. Grease? Gone. Volume? Enhanced. Sticky, gritty texture? Nope. I’m tempted to call it the Cadillac of dry shampoos.

See all 5 of Kate’s looks from the weekend »

It was a very busy weekend for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge—but busy is always welcome for those of us obsessed with the royals, especially when you consider that Kate Middleton had 5 outfit changes! We have photos of every single look in our massive Kate Middleton style gallery, but here’s a rundown of what the royals got up to in New Zealand.

On Saturday, the Cambridges went to Cambridge! The couple toured the town and met with locals who lined the streets. Kate debuted a new coat by Erdem—a bright green, knee-length coat with front zip from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. She paired it with a floral print tea dress by Suzannah, though only the hemline was visible. Knowing Kate, we’ll likely see this dress in full at some point in the future. Since when doesn’t she wear an item more than once? Read more »
