So I nearly overlooked my 20% birthday discount from Luxola (it hangs around for like a month, you should check) and I had never purchased anything from that site yet ever and I had a small bit of PayPal money that came in. After watching Guardian beauty editor and Pretty Honest book author Sali Hughes wind up a part 2 interview with world-famous pro makeup artist Val Garland this product was on my mind. Val is the freelance lady who does most of the major collection imagery for MAC, who made up the Gaga for Bad Romance, and directs the makeup for campaigns and runway work under designer houses. There was a portion of the video that wouldn’t leave my mind from timecode 5:08 and 6:25 in YouTube. This is where Val shares the inside scoop of how she personally recommended this specific skincare gem to Victoria Beckham.

Unless you’re an exceedingly particular person when it comes to skincare you might be underwhelmed at the onset with this one when you first try it but it DOES work on point for sleepy not-in-the-mood PMS besieged skin, especially for dry/sensitive types. It seems to have worked for Victoria based on Val’s inside story over the span of a couple of months. The Val Garland also likes it on the plane for long-haul flights. It works quite covertly and takes a couple of minutes for the first facial perk up (it contains caffeine, Argan oil, vitamin antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid). As a pro makeup artist with very sensitive skin I noticed a few small things. It absorbed very quickly and didn’t leave a greasy sheen, more of like a satin finish perfect for beneath makeup. After a few minutes of massaging this light cream into my face my eyes felt less puffy and the slight hormonal bloat I had around my mouth area calmed down. They say it’s a mask, moisturizer, and primer in one so you can also use it before bed. I’m not too sure about the mask part but it certainly is a very, very sophisticated no-excess-nasties moisturizer. Months later at a British awards night Val approached Victoria and she looked at Val directly and repeatedly went on to say “In Transit, In Transit, In Transit…”. All it took was this true story and I was pleased to see that hardly anyone had noticed it on Luxola lol, so I’m now ultra keen to share it with you. Here’s the video that spills it: Sali Hughes Beauty – In The Bathroom with Val Garland Part 2 from timecode 5:08 and 6:25.… To full post & COMMENTS...
