I've a bit of a soft-spot for Lauren Hutton. After all, she bravely went back in front of the camera at the age of 46, she's got that goofy gap-teeth thing, and she's eccentric. If you don't believe me on the last point, take a look at her wrestling snakes. I would imagine that such activities could get you to work up a sweat and so a non shine tinted moisturizer would be just the think.

However, when I got around to looking at her range of cosmetics, I was crushed. Lauren Hutton's No Shine Tinted Moisturizer is a disappointment. Now I must admit that the packaging is ingenious: the two-in-one thing with the moisturizer and concealer, plus the useful mirror. But the contents are scarier than the snake. There are so many preservatives in this that I have no doubt that if it is excavated thousands of years from now it will be perfectly intact. In fact, nearly one-fifth of the ingredients are preservatives.

There are also several silicones, an acrylic, a pH balancer and various emulsifiers. That leaves some space for a couple of emollients - sorbitan sesquiolate, glycerin and squalane - and vitamin E.

She must have been, I can only assume, badly advised. It seems such a wasted opportunity. She is such a great poster girl for aging with style that she deserves to put her name to products that are based on the latest research into antioxidants, peptides and plant extracts.
