In 2015 I’m introducing Tuesdays as the day I pen The Beauty Edit. It’ll be a mix of my previous Recent Beauty Favorites posts and other musings on beauty products and routines delivered every Tuesday morning. Have questions on products or beauty routines? Please do email me at witwhimsy@gmail.com and I’ll get right on answering as part of the Tuesday posts.

Charlotte Tillbury Magic Cream*: This cream is a splurge, for sure however given my skin has decided it wants to have wild dry spots this season, I appreciate the fact that this product works in just one use. I put it on at night – only in dry spots – and the oil-rich formula helps dry patches and helps fight the aging process (amen, this girl is almost 30 – eep!) Skin is more luminous in the morning and dryness has been resolved.

Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment*: This will sound weird but this product is so fun to put on! You paint lines of the product on your face and then massage in. Almost 30, wrinkles are now in my life whether I like it or not. This product smoothes and softens skin while improving elasticity, firmness and texture giving it a more youthful appearance.

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish: After I used this product for the first time I wondered how I’d be living without it. It works miracles on chapped lips! Gently exfoliating and conditioning, it leaving lips incredibly soft and smooth. I like to put it on before the shower and then rinse it off after a few minutes. It’ll buff away dry flakes and nourish skin with jojoba oil.
