As the world goes crazy over the Summer sporting event in Rio, we've been playing our own set games over here at the SkinStore HQ. We took a little break from watching our champion Sportsmen fight for the gold medals, and drew up a list of our favourite beauty products, worthy of gaining those gold stars!

As the world is captivated by 'best performance', whether it be in synchronized swimming or running the track, we tackled each other about those best performance beauty, cosmetic or haircare products we would happily hand a gold medal over to.


Here's what we came up with, and lets see if you agree!

1. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum and Hydrating B5 Gel

Skinceuticals C E Ferulic is a revolutionary serum, packed with antioxidants that provide 8 times the skin's natural photo-aging protection. C E Ferulic contains ferulic acid, which doubles the synergistic benefits of C E - neutralizing free radicals, building collagen, and providing improved antioxidant protection. They say that mo other antioxidant technology has been shown to deliver these levels of skin protection. Another hero product from SkinCeuticals is the Hydrating B5 Gel, enriched with vitamin B5 to help with tissue repair. This clear gel replenishes nutrients for smooth and younger looking skin. Both of these products are packed with moisturization, making them great for all skin types, but especially great for those looking to slow down the years!

2. Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Advanced Serum and Night Cream

A worldwide favorite, Boots No7 Protect and Perfect range is a best seller and a cult favorite. The Advanced Serum and Night Cream are a pair we love using together, due to their rich moisturizing properties which look to a deep level overnight. The Night Cream replenishes nutrients and softens the skin whilst you sleep, which can be followed up by the Serum the following morning. The serum has a lovely silky feel when massaged into skin, and it's Matrixyl 3000 Plus™  combined with a next generation peptide work together to protect future signs of aging. The pair together work a dream!

3. Anastacia Highlighting Duo Pencil and Brown Brow Wiz

The world recently went Anastacia mad, and for good reason too. The ultra-slim mechanical pencil of the Brow Wiz is super easy to use, to shape, define, and fill in your brows for a natural, polished look. It features a spooley brush to easily blend for a natural look. Once you have penciled in your brows, finish off with the chunky dual ended pencil of the Highlighting Duo. One end features a matte highlighter, and the other a shimmer highlighter. Use the matte side during the day to create a soft highlight under your brow bone and corners of your eyes, and for those nights on the town, use the shimmer side to give your eyes that soft satiny glow.

4. Soap and Glory Sexy Mutha Pucka Plumping Lip Gloss

Soap and Glory aren't just loved for their scrumptious bath and body range - their make-up products are raved about too! We currently can't get enough of their best-selling extreme plumping lip glosses, including their Sexy Mother Pucker range filled with Superfill™ volume-maxing microspheres and Lipswell™ natural plant oil infusion. A single slick of Sexy Mother Pucker™ can fool your lips into looking and feeling fuller. The Superfill™ plumping technology explodes the volume up to 10 times when your lips absorb moisture, and Lipswell™ helps to make lips look instantly lusher. Our favorites come in a soft candy pink gloss, or just plain old clear and and classic!

5. Briogeo Roscaro Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

We're big fans of natural, organic haircare, so it's no wonder that Briogeo tops our list. Infused with Briogeo’s signature blend of ultra-nourishing rosehip, argan and coconut oils, Rosarco Repair Shampoo effectively restores silky sheen to dry, brittle and overall lackluster locks. Coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft to nourish and repair from the inside out, sealing the uplifted cuticle to lock in moisture and lock out environmental impurities. Team with the complementing conditioner for soft-to-touch, healthy, fresh smelling hair.

6. Mama Mio Stretch Mark Minimiser and Tummy Rub Oil

Although Mama Mio is a brand designed to assist with pregnant ladies bodies, or those post-pregnancy, it's also great for those who need help toning up and fighting stretch marks. The Mama Mio Tummy Rub Oil is great for those conscious about their tummies and want to use beauty products which can help firm and smooth. Enriched with omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, this rich oil builds the skin's strength and elasticity. The organic oils work to provide maximum protection to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks during and after pregnancy, or even if you have had sudden weight fain/weight loss.

Another top product from Mama Mio is the 'Goodbye Stretch Marks' Stretch Mark Minimiser. Suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, the lightweight yet powerful cream effectively reduces the appearance and discoloration of stretch marks. Formulated with a blend of peptides, fruit extracts and essential oils to boost the skin's elasticity for smoother results. A womens dream product!
