James Franco turns fashion photographer

James Franco shot Chateau Dreams for US ELLE magazine
For those of you who missed this little gem from US ELLE a fortnight ago, James Franco has added yet another talent to his actor-director-screenwriter-producer-author-painter-performance artist-charity-worker-and-all-around-hot-guy title.

Agyness Deyn stars as the androgynous rebel in the stunning Chateau Dreams shoot alongside fellow models Natalia Bonifacci and Imogen Poots.

The beauty product I couldn't live without...

Today Chic & Cheerful will be turning its attention to the wonderful world of moisturisers. For more excellent tips and beauty commentary, visit Yesterface, written by the lovely Heledd Williams.

The reason
I suffer from sensitive skin. Well, I use suffer in a general way because, although having sensitive skin can be an absolute nightmare at times, it means that I get to try a lot of products. A lot.

I'm not a big make up person (mascara, eye-liner and lip balm are my sometimes daily staples - with base, touché eclait and lip gloss reserved for special occasions) so my daily routine relies solely on cleansing, toning and moisturising. Without a decent moisturiser I would be lost (or at the very least mildly irritated).

The moisturiser
My current moisturiser of choice is this beauty from The Body Shop. The Vitamin E illuminating moisture cream is simply put one of the best products I have ever owned. The cream is easily absorbed, light to wear and, most importantly, perfect for sensitive skin.
And on top of all that, it gives your skin a lovely pink glow. Although it can make you a bit glittery if worn alone, it's perfect teamed with a light powder - I recommend The Body Shop's pressed face powder.
