Three New Skin Essentials to Try

Looking to overhaul your beauty routine? These newcomers to the skincare scene will help you get your skin in tip-top condition in no time at all.

Get Your Vitamins

We all know vitamin C does wonders for our skin – brightening, firming, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – but harnessing the potent vitamins powers can be difficult. Dermalogica’s new BioLumin-C Serum ($159) has been formulated with a ultra-stable efficacious vitamin C complex and impressive bio-technology which is able to penetrate the skin’s surface to bolster the skin’s natural detox system and protect it from oxidative stress.

Revive Your Skin

The next generation of skincare favourite Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate (30ml, $67) has arrived packed with innovative technology which strengthens skin from the inside out. A potent cocktail of powerful botanicals enhance the skin’s defense mechanisms, fending off external aggressors and keeping your complexion calm under pressure. The result: healthy, radiant skin.  

Scrub Up

Regular exfoliation keeps skin glowing and healthy and La Mer’s new The Replenishing Oil Exfoliator ($165) gets the job done in a unique way. The luxurious formulation glides onto the skin as a semi-solid oil and quickly melts into a silky liquid oil; once water is added it transforms into a creamy texture. Ocean-friendly natural exfoliators – salt and sugar – gently exfoliate skin to reveal a smooth, radiant complexion.

Allbirds’ Sweetest Sole Yet

The San Francisco-based Kiwi footwear company is at it again. This time creating ‘SweetFoam’ – a new green material made from sugarcane.

They’ve always been dedicated to creating more environmentally sustainable footwear options, becoming famous for their Wool Runner, which is made from New Zealand superfine merino wool, but this time it seems Allbirds have upped the ante.

SweetFoam™ – a proprietary sole material made with the world’s first green-EVA, derived from renewable sugarcane, is revolutionary in terms of sustainability and innovation. Most shoe soles are made from plastic foam called EVA which is highly prevalent in casual footwear and incredibly polluting. So the fact that Allbirds has come up with an alternative is pretty huge news.

The material will initially be available in Sugar Zeffers, a new take on the Kiwi jandal, and will then be rolled out across the entire Allbirds product portfolio. The brand is making their renewable green EVA technology available to other companies – the first step at bringing systemic change to the footwear industry.

Retailing for $60, Sugar Zeffers are available online at

Along with this exciting new launch, Allbirds is thrilled to announce Academy Award-winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio as a new investor. Click here to find out more about the exciting new partnership.
