With some beauty products you really have to take the long view: complex ingredients can take a while to start working their magic. But, there are times when you just need something NOW! Whether it’s a flash balm type of serum to instantly freshen your look, a lip plumper to banish lines and give you a knock-out pout or even a self tan to boost your skin tone – all these ‘now’ tools are a blessing to the cosmetic bag. I like Decleor Expression De L’Age Smoothing Roll On to give eyes a smoother and more awake look straight away. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid, hydrating Cherry Blossom Bud and wheat proteins that ‘fill’ fine lines, it’s an instant fix to transform bleary to beautiful.
