I have a new beauty crush… hello Sunday Riley! If you haven’t heard of this new skin care range, you’re about to get educated. Not only do the products have incredibly awesome names like Juno, Liquid diet, Charisma Creme, Good Genes and Skin Adrenaline, but they are all made with ‘Green Technology’.
So what is this so called Green Technology? It’s a term Sunday likes to use to describe skincare formulas that are a perfect union between pure potent botanicals and advanced chemistry. Basically, they use cutting-edge technologies alongside ingredients that are 99% pure – like the Blue Agave, Biofermented Aloe, Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchid, Prickly Pear and Night Blooming Cactus blend designed to fight cellular inflamation and promote cellular detoxification and rejuvenation.
Last year it was popping up in every magazine under the sun from US Weekly to Harper’s Bazaar UK, so I had to be forgiven for giving out a small squeal when the package of samples to review arrived with my name on it. Unfortunately it’s currently only available in the U.S, but word has it that it will be spreading across seas far and wide in only a matter of time.
First up in my goody parcel was the rare dry oil absolute, Juno Transformative Lipid Serum, that gives skin an obsession-worthy glow. The fast absorbing oils are extremely high in natural retinol, Vitamin C, Essential Amino Acids, Omega-3, 6, & 9, UV shields, and contain natural Anti-Inflammatory agents for luminous skin.
Dip into this multi-tasking mask, Good Genes, if you weren’t naturally born with them. It promises to plump fine lines, reveal brighter, newer skin, and improve circulation, offering a smooth, vibrant complexion. If used long-term the formula will restore damaged skin, reduce hyperpigmentation and acne scars, reduce the depth and number of lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and increase epidermal firmness and thickness.
Next up? Bionic Anti-Ageing Cream, THE powerhouse cream for all ages and all skin types built on hydration and anti-aging fusion technology to rebuild collagen, stimulate elastin production, reverse photodamage and increase skin energy.
You want lusciously smooth, soft skin? Well I suggest lathering on some Skin Adrenaline. This formula promises to instantly boost facial radiance by providing essential lipids to your skin that are hydrating, anti-polluting, anti-Oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging.
My knees buckled at the words Cashmere SPF 30 – yes, you read that correctly – Cashmere SPF 30. Sheer, weightless and uber soft just like the thread. This 100% Mineral Sun Protection (Titanium Dioxide), provides photostable sun defence without white streaks or oiliness and cushions the skin with Cashmere Protein.
Last but of course not least (because everyone NEEDS a fabulous cleanser) is the Charisma Creme Cleanser for normal to dry skin made with a skin softening blend of milk, aloe, chamomile, lavendar, green tea and multi-fruit acids designed to leave the skin refreshed but soothed.
Did I mention that Sunday Riley will be working with Stella McCartney’s team for the Autumn show this weekend? The girl’s just getting started!
