Afternoon delight: SkinCeuticals’ Phloretin CF antioxidant gives good skin

Comments

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

Comments

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 »

Kate Middleton goes normcore and casually beats William in a yacht race

Today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to this high seas, competing in a friendly competition with New Zealand’s national yacht racing team. They got to wear sleek life jackets and normcore-approved windbreakers and hats, overtop their usual “Royals, they’re just like us!” casualwear. For Kate Middleton, this means Zara skinny jeans and a Breton stripe scoop neck shirt from Me + Em, a London-based retailer. And, because she was indeed on a boat, Kate wore a pair of tan and white Sebago boat shoes. Our favourite part of the whole outing was when Kate won the yacht race and was all ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ at Price William as she sailed past him. Go Kate! Read more »

Today’s tour itinerary brought the royals to New Zealand’s South Island, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting the Blenheim War Memorial and stopping to greet the many local faces who lined up to meet them. Blue is one of Kate Middleton’s favourite colours to wear (just scroll through our complete gallery of her every look to see what we mean) and rightfully so: look how flattering that cornflower blue coat is! The piece is a custom design from Alexander McQueen, combining elements from two belted crepe coats available this season. The stunning colour, however, is all Kate—or perhaps was a suggestion from designer Sarah Burton, who clearly knows how to make the duchess shine. Read more »


Why you should forget you ever knew that Kristen Stewart dyed her hair orange

Uh oh. Kristen Stewart dyed her hair orange this weekend, but it seems like that was maybe something we were not supposed to know. The bright dye job was for Stewart’s upcoming role in the indie film American Ultra, which is currently filming in New Orleans. Hence, Friday’s Instagram update from a NOLA hair salon, which showed a smiling, orange hair-hued Stewart giving the peace sign while posing next to a stylist. Read more »
