LIFT THE VEIL

We’re feeling refreshed by the honesty of new beauty brand The Ordinary, with
its focus on functional beauty without the bumph. Products are branded with the name of their active ingredient; the packaging tells you what they are and what they do, in simple, factual terms; and they’re cheap as chips … but much better for your skin. For an instant hydration boost, brides should be all over Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5, €6.90 at victoriahealth.com.
