Essence are bringing out alllll of the new collections at the moment and here we have the Essence The Glowin' Golds collection, which is perfect for Summer and includes body products, skin care and makeup! Let's take a look...
For the body, we have the Essence The Glowin' Golds Body Shimmer Gel (£3.49 for 50ml) in the shade Golden Glow, I Love You So! This is a lightly shimmering gel texture which gives a gentle soft-focus effect on the skin. Its innovative formula contains Vitamin E and Shea Butter and has a fresh coconut scent. This is lovely applied to the legs, arms and décolleté and isn't at all sticky on the skin, it dries down beautifully.
The first skincare product in the collection is the Essence The Glowin' Golds Hydrating Golden Face Mask (£1.99 for 20ml), and you actually get two applications within this pack. The Golden Face Mask is enriched with moisturising water-based Glycerin and is a hydrating mask that you apply onto cleansed skin, sit back and relax for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. You will then have super soft and hydrated skin with a touch of glow!
The second skincare product in the collection is the Essence The Glowin' Golds Vitamin C Glow Serum (£3.79 for 20ml). This serum comes in a glass bottle with a pipette applicator so that you can control the amount of product you are dispensing. Enriched with Vitamin C, this Serum enhances the skin's natural radiance and provides the perfect makeup base, nourishing and illuminating the complexion for a natural glow. This has such a lovely formula to it, and is a fraction of the price of most Vitamin C serums on the market.
There are two shades of the Essence The Glowin' Golds Vitamin E Baked Luminous Bronzer (£3.79 for 7g), and I opted for the lighter shade, 01 Live Life Golden, which would suit light to medium skin tones, but certainly not fair as it is still a little deep. This baked texture bronzer has a subtle golden shimmer, and is easily blendable to create a healthy, sun-kissed look adding natural warmth to the complexion. The formula is enriched with Vitamin E for added skincare too.
I have really been enjoying baked formulas lately, and the Essence The Glowin' Golds Vitamin C Baked Highlighter (£3.29 for 4.5g) is beautiful!!!! There is only one shade available - 01 Days Ahead, a rose gold shimmer, however it is just gorgeous and looks insane with a tan! This has a super soft texture and is highly pigmented to give the complexion a bright, yet natural radiance with the added bonus of Vitamin C.
A classic Essence Mascara has had a limited edition rose gold makeover, giving us the Essence The Glowin' Golds I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara (£2.75 or 12ml). Essence mascaras are some of the very best on the market, even better than many high end in my opinion. This mascara dips the lashes in an ultra-deep black and gives them incredible volume. The lash hairs are separated and extended, giving you butterfly soft, voluminous lashes.
Last but of course, not least, we have the Essence The Glowin' Golds Caring Shimmering Lip Oil (£2.29 for 9ml), which is available in two shades - 01 Heart of Gold (a light gold shimmer) and 02 Golden Magic (a coral with gold shimmer). These are super pretty on the lips, and are mostly clear in colour, but they do of course add that hint of sparkle. The Lip Oils contain Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E to intensively nourish the lips, and with the shimmer, the lip oil has a slight plumping effect without any stickiness.
