Fashion & BeautyThe Glow Squad

The Glow Squad

With ‘glow’ as our theme, it only seems fitting to meet some of the people who help the people of Jersey glow. We meet some of the queens of counter culture, tasked with choosing products that make your skin as soft as a fresh winter snowfall.

Adriana Laba

Creme de la Mer at Voisins.

I love giving gifts. I like to give a little bit to everybody. I never expect anything back. I love shopping, so Christmas is an excuse to go shopping for other people. I love the whole celebration–the decoration, the lights, the shopping. I’m a bit obsessed with shopping–even just seeing people shopping here at De Gruchy. The Christmas spirit is everywhere.

Recommendation for Glow:  La Mer Crème de la Mer

With a heart of renewing Miracle Broth™ and antioxidant Lime Tea, this ultra-rich cream delivers soothing  moisture, daily protection, and energised natural renewal. With daily devotion, skin feels firmer, lines and wrinkles appear diminished, and a more uplifted, rejuvenated look emerges. 60ml £214


Susy Barradas

Dior at FeelUnique

I love the Christmas season because I love being connected with people. Work is busier, and I love giving people advice on Christmas presents. Some people don’t have a lot for Christmas, so it’s the little things, even something as simple as the wrapping paper here at FeelUnique. If someone gets something wrapped up with a little bit of sparkle, it makes their day. It makes them feel special.

Recommendation for Glow:  Dior Prestige La micro-huile de rose advanced serum

Concentrates the double power of the Rose de Granville from the stem to the flower for intense revitalisation and visible youthfulness. 50ml £201.25

Kandis Barratt

MAC at Voisins

At Christmas you get to spend time with your friends and family. It’s a nice time to get everyone together. I love the atmosphere here at Voisins at Christmas. I love glitter, everything about glitter, and Christmas, I can wear glitter all the time and get away with it!

Recommendation for Glow:  MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ (Shimmer)

Hydrates, primes, sets makeup and illuminates skin. Keeps makeup looking fresh up to 12 hours. This shimmer setting spray makes skin looks both healthy and radiant. £18

Nicolene Jones

La Prairie at de Gruchy

I am a Christmas person. I love how the whole town blossoms. This Christmas especially, I’ve noticed that there’s a more vibrant feel. The Christmas glow comes from smiling faces. We have so much happiness in De Gruchy at Christmas time—the staff, the couples holding hands, the children and the dogs walking through. Families together at Christmas really makes me smile.

Recommendation for Glow: La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream

Drawn from Swiss waters rich with life, La Prairie’s Swiss caviar is the essence of raw potential. The skin around the eye appears lifted and firmed, resulting in a total transformation. Features are supported, tightened and toned, while the look of puffiness is diminished. £260

Silvia Lima

Dior at Voisins

My favourite thing about Christmas is that everyone is sparkly, happy, and getting in the Christmas spirit. I love the decorations at home and at the store. I love the buzz and atmosphere. I love the glow at Christmas that people have from within and also putting on a little sparkle. It makes everyone smile.

Recommendation for Glow:  Christian Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette in Gold

The Dior makeup artists’ secret for adding instant radiance with professional results, from a natural healthy glow to an intense luminosity. £31.50

Linda Stark

Lancôme at FeelUnique

People are so happy at Christmas, and it’s a fun time for everyone. I love how busy it is here in the shop. People glow at Christmas, and it makes them feel better and makes them look better. When everyone is glowing, it’s a happier world!

Recommendation for Glow: Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate

A serum designed for every woman: all ethnicities, ages, and skin types – dry, combination/normal and oily. Contains Hyaluronic Acid for instant radiance, and the new formula is enriched with seven prebiotic and probiotic-derived extracts. Skin looks healthier and younger. 30ml £52.50
