GUERLAIN

by Gabi Anderson Courtney

Since 1828 Guerlain has been committed to beauty; making women look and feel amazing.

I have first encountered the brand in my late twenties when meeting a lady in a duty-free shop. She looked stunning and I estimated her to be the same age as me. She was 52. When you mistake a 52 year old for 28, there is definitely a secret to be discovered.

She did admit that she spends about half an hour in the morning and about 45 minutes in the evening on her skin, but the only products in her bathroom are all from Guerlain.  So, I stocked up on exactly what she was using; the Midnight Secret range (no longer available.) Did it make a big difference to my skin? Absolutely.

Fast forward 20 years and I'm still in love with this brand. I have dry skin and the Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil is is my saviour. I have never encountered a product that actually changes your skin and gets rid of the dryness in an instant. I also use the Abeille Royale Daily Repair Serum and the Orchidee Imperiale Eye Serum.

My primer is L'Or (pure gold makeup base), foundation is Lingerie De Peau, concealer is Multi-Perfecting Concealer in cool light, I use Parure Gold for powder, followed by Meteorites to get that extra glow. Even my eyeliner and mascara are from Guerlain. Besides that, one of my favourite fragrances is  Shalimar.

So, you could say that I'm a fan. There is no guesswork here, everything from Guerlain is simply amazing. I cannot wait to see what magic potion they will come up next.
