INA Crystals White Gold Day Moisture Cream (pictured left, £28.00 for 50ml) celeb make-up artist Louise Constad says “I love this product- it’s sophisticated, feminine, and smells divine. It sits well under make-up, ideal for a good base. I use it on my clients, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Kristen Scott Thomas and Helena Bonham Carter. It’s deeply hydrating-lasts for hours, and contains white gold crystal salt to add luminosity, and it’s free from parabens and synthetics.”
