Every month we hear about new products that have been released into the beauty world that we just have to try and sometimes if we are lucky enough – we get to do just that #perksofthejob. Like with every new release, it can be hard to know what you should be spending your money on and… what you shouldn’t. So, we have rounded up a few of our top picks of products that have landed on our desk over the last month – these are our top picks!
This luxurious product from new, natural bodycare brand Tronque is designed to give your body intensive hydration with long lasting moisture. The rich, thick and velvety texture of the product is fitting for its name “Rice as Croesus” – with the phrase being translated to “filthy rich,” in modern English. This body butter is enriched with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes, bioactive Wakame seaweed from the Marlborough Sound supports skin strengthening. While a hydrating complex of Mamaku extract, Vitamin B3 niacinamide, olive squalane, hyaluronic acid and ceramides renews elasticity and deeply revitalises dry damaged areas. Skin looks strong and illuminated with whipped anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial high MGO Mānuka honey. A premium blend of rosehip, pomegranate seed, sunflower and vanilla oils feed, nourish and calm.
This multi-purpose Kawakawa balm landed on our desk recently and we are in love! The recipe is based on the traditional Māori use for Kawakawa to soothe irritations, abrasions and it works as an anti-inflammatory due to it’s antibacterial and analgesic properties. This balm is made with Sweet Almond and Manuka Oil, as well as Beeswax from bee hives, owned by the brand.
