Both my mum and I are huge fans of French pharmacy skincare brands (I’m 30, she’ll be 60 next year). I find they have amazing products at reasonable prices, with more focus on efficacy than marketing compared to a lot of high-end brands. They are particularly good for sensitive skin types. This is a good place to start for recommendations:


Personally I really like La Roche Posay, Avene and Bioderma. All of these brands are excellent for sensitive skin and have anti-aging lines. Makeupalley.com is a great resource for reviews of pretty much any product under the sun!

As for makeup, I think you could go for two options on two ends of the spectrum. For everyday, a BB cream or a good tinted moisturiser. My favourite is the original BB cream by Dr Jart, it basically feels like a very hydrating, lightweight-yet-sufficiently-pigmented cross between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation. It’s Korean, but you can get it at Sephora:


I use the original blue one and my mum swears by the black and gold one (which I think is the anti-aging version) but they are all quite similar and good.

For your wedding and other special occasions, I’d check out Armani. They have an amazing cream foundation that’s just beautiful. It’s meant to be more ‘mature’ skin types but I’ve used it before and it’s nice just because it’s so moisturising and kind of gives you a lovely glow.

I hope that helps a little! x

I am 36 and recently started using the Patricia Wexler MD line from Bath and Body Works.  It’s a little pricier than grocery store brands, but not TOO expensive (you can usually find a discount code on retailmenot.com)  My skin has never looked better! I love what it’s done for me…they have a starter kit that’s $40 but comes with 4 products that will last 30 days so you can really get a feel for if you like it or not.
