4 Game-changing Beauty Products you Need to Know About

These are the four cutting-edge beauty products you need in your routine now.

Eye Spy

Given the fact that the eye area has the most delicate, fragile skin on the face and is constantly moving – we blink around 10,000 times – it’s easy to understand why this area is often the first to show the signs of ageing. Secrets de Sothys La Crème Eye and Lip Youth Cream ($199) combines the best of science and nature to lift and plump not only eye contours but lip contours too which are also prone to ageing. Peach leaf glucans and plum oil help to create an anti-stress response within the skin while powerful peptides, silk tree extract and hyaluronic microspheres regenerate eye and lip contours will protect them from further damage. A potent blend of botanicals including sacred locus extract makes dark circles and puffy eyes a thing of the past.

Very soon – 15 April – Elizabeth Arden will launch its game-changing Prevage Progressive Renewal Treatment ($299) which is set revolutionise at-home treatments. “The treatment has been carefully formulated to be both powerful yet gentle, harnessing Prevage’s scientifically proven technology and new breakthrough ingredients at higher concentrations,” explains Dr Dendy Engelman, dermatologist to the stars and consulting dermatologist for Elizabeth Arden. Engelman explains that the treatment – an at-home peel – contains polyhydroxy acids which are excellent exfoliating acids that are less irritating than traditional AHAs. “When PHAs are freshly mixed with Idebenone (the powerful antioxidant in Prevage) they gently resurface and protect newly-revealed skin cells from environmental aggressors.”

Best Tressed
Brittle damaged hair is a common hair woe that we would love to see the back of and Joico’s soon-to-be-launched Damage Defy system could be the answer we’ve been searching for. The revolutionary hair care system features in-salon bond-strengthening and colour-protecting treatments and an at-home care range to make sure tresses are well cared for right around the clock. According to Joico’s international guest artistic director, Richard Mannah, the treatments and at-home care range are suitable for anyone who wants to restore health and lustre to their damaged hair. Yes, all hair types! Defy Damage will not weigh down the hair. As for the results, Mannah says hair that has experienced the 360-degree complete protection and strengthening in-salon means better colour results, and soft, shiny, healthy hair.

The Good Oil
Strong, healthy skin is better able to fend off the signs of ageing and Estée Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme + collection has been formulated to help create and enhance a more resilient complexion. As well as containing the collection’s youth-restoring skincare technology, recently launched Nourishing and Hydrating Dual Phase Treatment Oil ($143) features a duo of nourishing mango and evening primrose oils that keep skin hydrated. The super lightweight dual-phase treatment formulation is quickly absorbed by the skin to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and bring luminosity back to your complexion.

The New Moisturiser Made With You in Mind

If you’ve ever dreamt of being able to create a moisturiser that caters to all your unique skin concerns, Clinique has come up with the answer with new Clinique iD.

Despite the overwhelming plethora of skincare options that cater to various different skin concerns, it’s still easy to end up feeling like your daily moisturiser is taking a one-size-fits-all approach to skin types. With this in mind and the fact that most women spend a serious amount of time and effort searching high and low for the perfect moisturiser, Clinique decided to give their cult Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion a futuristic makeover and launch game-changing Clinique iD.

Instead of spending hours searching for the ideal moisturiser, getting the moisturiser of your dreams has just been made a whole lot easier. First, you pick your favourite formulation Dramatically Different Formulation. There are three formulations to choose from – each caters to a different skin type. There’s the Hydrating Jelly which is super light, glides onto skin and is suitable for all skin types; the cult favourite Moisturizing Lotion which is perfect for dry skin types; and the Oil-Free Gel which has been formulated to help rebalance oily skin.

Once you’ve picked your ‘base’ then it’s time to think about your skincare concerns and add an active cartridge concentrate that has been formulated with a host of game-changing active ingredients. Clinique cleverly created five unique cartridges; each of which tackles a unique skin concern. Each cartridge has also been formulated with Clinique’s Clean Philosophy in mind. Clinique iD is allergy tested and is free from unwanted nasties including parabens, phthalates and fragrance.

There’s the Irritation cartridge which has sensitive skin in mind and helps to calm and comfort unhappy skin; Pores & Uneven Texture which smoothes and refines skin; Uneven Skin Tone which brightens skin and helps minimise pigmentation; Fatigue which wakes up tired skin; and Lines and Wrinkles which fends off the signs of ageing.

In total there are 15 possible Clinique iD combinations because let’s face it: no one has exactly the same needs.
