A day of launches...

Yesterday was a busy day in the beauty calendar, with not 1, not 2, but 3 exciting launches. The day started off in the Soho Hotel with the lovely Dermalogica. I'm a devout fan of their skincare (their Microfoliant is my pick for gentle, daily buffing) and for those of you who are also followers their new range for sensistive skin is a must. The range, which launches in May, will include a reformulated cleanser and barrier repair, facial mist, masque and serum (the hero product, apparently) but more to follow on this.

Next was a quick dash to the Bourjois Spring/Summer press day, where celebrity makeup artist, Cassie Lomas, was on hand to expertly guide me through the new products. The signature look is inspired by ballet - think pearlescent skin, silver eyes and rosy lips. Most exciting is their new rotating mascara, Volume Fast & Perfect Mascara, which spins to open up the lashes and coat evenly. I saw the end result on one of the lovely PR girls and its curling prowess is seriously exciting! Cannot wait to try. I was lucky enough to squeeze in a quick manicure with Marina Sandoval, manicurist to Elle McPherson and Claudia Schiffer. I chose the new So Laque Ultra Shine in Bleu Asphalte, £7.99 (available mid April), a gorgeous denimy-blue.

Finally, it was to Tresemme's pop up salon for a lowdown on their new products. It seems they don't do things by halves, launching a whopping 11 new products on shelf this April. We were given a demo and you'll be glad to know, as with most of Tresemme's products, pro results are easy to achieve. I'm particularly excited about the new Sky High Plumping Powder, £5.99, the first dust dry shampoo available on the hight street! FYI, it's great for priming hair for updos too! Sx
