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 that are worth trying.
Dermalogica Awaken Peptide Eye Gel, RRP $105
Dermalogica’s new cooling eye gel is perfect for summer (and all year round really) and on application it is instantly soothing. It features caffeine which helps to gently depuff by draining the eye area and has Active Tentrapeptides and Rosemary leaf Extract to minimise puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines. There’s also bioengineered Succinc Acid Blend to keep your eyes looking bright and suitably radiant, as well as Voandzeia Subterranea Seed Extract which leaves skin looking smoother and more luminous.
Linden Leaves know how nice it is to mist on some cool and hydrating spray in warm weather which makes the release of their Rose & Ylang Ylang Face & Body Mist perfectly timed for these hot days. The formula is designed to nourish and rejuvenate the skin, with marshmallow to soothe and hydrate, white tea to brighten and protect, and aloe vera to calm and soothe. It’s oil free, vegan and features a beautiful and delicate 100% natural rose and ylang ylang scent.
Jeuneora Clarifying Booster, RRP $57
Jeuneora have introduced a new Overnight Resurfacing Peel, Clarifying Booster, to its range of luxurious skincare. Jeuneora Clarifying Booster is a chemical exfoliator that combines a unique formulation of naturally derived AHAs, including Mandelic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Lactic Acid. Together these acids gently exfoliate and tone skin, remove dead skin cells, brighten skin, remove excess oil, unclog pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The brand has paired these powerful acids with calming ingredients such as Glycerin and Aloe Vera to help nourish and hydrate the skin throughout the exfoliation process, ensuring Clarifying Booster doesn’t sting or irritate on application like some traditional chemical exfoliators. Niacinamide which is a form of Vitamin B3, has also been added to visibly refine pores, calm the skin, improve uneven skin tone, and deliver a beautiful glow. Clarifying Booster is vegan, cruelty-free, dermatologist tested and approved, and free from all the usual nasties.
MECCA MAX has launched six new high-pigmented eyeshadow palettes in mini sizes that are portable but pack a colour punch. They’re designed to be swatched, smudged and swapped wherever you go, with each mini palette featuring six curated shimmers and mattes that easily take you from day to night with the sweep of a brush. The range of hues features perfect tones for makeup minimalists and MAXimalists alike with a sets for subtle smoky eyes or colourful makeup looks that are made for standing out. The eyeshadow palettes are vegan and cruelty-free with each shadow finely-milled so they’re easy to blend and layer for your ultimate eye look on-the-go.
As much as we try not to pop pimples these things happen sometimes and this new gel cream spot treatment from Dermalogica helps fades post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It’s a smart and easy way to restore compromised skin after a breakout and helps fade the spots left behind. It can be used on any of your stubborn skin marks, both new and old which makes it definitely worth trying as many of us have acquired acne scarring over the years.
