Posts in Intensive Infusion Concentrate Extreme

I know everyone has been blabbering on about the exciting news that Tom Ford will be releasing a full fledged makeup line this September, but I just had to have my say on it as well. Now I have to admit I have never smelt his fragrances but I have been lucky enough to try out his high-end lipstick in the gorgeous Pure Pink, and that one little bullet of colour has me head over heals for Tom Ford (you know, even more so. Not just for his sheer good looks anymore).

The Collection

Ok so pretty pictures will tell you most of the story but I sure do want to know what all those pretty palettes and bottles are. I think one exciting thing to note is that Charlotte Tilbury was the make-up artist Tom chose to work with on creating these products. She is an extraordinary talent and along with Tom’s unique visions this is going to be one collection that will sell out before you can blink.

We can expect to see unheard of makeup inventions like eyebrow pens with calligraphy style tips, as well as 6 products in a skincare line. So why skincare? Well, just like me, Tom believes that good makeup starts with flawless skin. His skincare products will include an oil based serum called Intensive Infusion Concentrate Extreme (what a tongue twister) and Purifying Crème Cleanser, “it goes on like cold cream and the skin feels moisturized and unbelievable” says Mr Ford.

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
