Berries are used a lot in the beauty industry. Whether it’s a new super fruit ingredient designed to make you look like a newborn baby or the latest hot colour that everyone has a lipstick variety of, you can’t get away from the trusty berry. So I thought I’d list some berry products I like because, you know, why not. First up is some skincare and a little bit of an out there berry, camu camu found in Mad Hippie’s Antioxidant Facial Oil. Yes you got me, I just love the name, but also the camu camu berry is powerful stuff with a lot of antioxidant properties. Also try Ole Henricksen’s Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask which is a reparative gel that really hydrates, especially good for sensitive skin. For bath time I know there are a lot of strawberry and raspberry scented products out there but no one really wants to smell like a teenage girls’ bedroom so stick to something a bit more sophisticated, Primavera Cleansing Bath Oil in Juniper & Cypress should do the trick. Onto the makeup side of things and of course everything berry is for cheeks and lips, a berry stain in particular is what I am often asked for tips on. A solid raspberry shade of lipstick is essential for anyone, I love Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Raspberry for that perfect deep pink shade. And if you don’t want the full lip colour but just a hint of stain try the classic Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm in Passionberry or for no colour at all EOS SPF15 Smooth Sphere Lip Balm in Pomegranate & Raspberry. Finally berry stained cheeks, I like a cream version for this so it can be blended, try Tarte Cheek Stain in Sheer Berry or you can always go DIY with a lip & cheek stain from your own kitchen.
