We’re not ashamed to admit we’re addicted to beauty products and probably shop at Sephora at least once a week despite the crazy amount of products we can sent to us by beauty brands. We recently got a chance to check out all the upcoming spring launches at the beauty giant and we’ve done a round-up of all the most exciting products you should definitely give a try.
Beauty junkies are probably very familiar with collagen. It’s the key structural element skin needs to main its youthful appearance and keeps your complexion supple and firm. This watery serum uses microfluidic technology to expedite the delivery of its active ingredients. It has a unique dual-phase formula that suspends microbeads of microalgae oil and actives in plant collagen water to address skin structure, firmness, radiance, fine lines and deep wrinkles and dull, uneven texture. The brand promises visible results in just 10 days.
This Korean export is a serum and moisturiser hybrid which helps to intensely treat your skin while hydrating at the same time. Pressed serums are made using a ‘slow cooling’ method over a 36-hour period instead of the usual way of processing ingredients with heat that supposedly helps to preserve the efficacy of the extracts. This has a melting balm texture and contains 31 per cent Gold Apricot extract to help brighten and hydrate skin, giving it a fresh, dewy finish.
We are obsessed with this adorable jelly-textured cleansing ball that hydrates and replenishes skin with an infusion of camellia oil. To use, just massage it directly over a wet face in gentle, circular motions. Or, you can wet the ball and lather it in hands, and massage the foam onto face with your fingers. It has camellia oil to hydrate and fight free radical damage, rice bran oil to boost circulation and lighten dark spots, as well as the antibacterial Tamarindus Indica Seed Gumto soothe and calm.
This dual-layered serum is made of oil and water and helps to instantly energise and cool skin. The water layer seamlessly hydrates dry areas with quick absorption, while the oil layer forms a protective barrier to maintain moisture all day long. We love how refreshing its texture is and how it instantly left our skin feeling soft and hydrated.
If you want radiant skin fast, then this is for you. It has Ethyl Ascorbic Acid to help brighten, diminish melanin on the skin’s surface, and even out skin tone. The intelligent brightening ingredient Brightenyl targets the formation process of melanin, to reduce the formation of melanin even under UV exposures, while glycolic acid accelerates the metabolism of melanin laden skin cells. The best thing about it, we were told when used together with the brand’s brightening mask, you’ll see results in just two weeks.
This natural beauty brand is new to Sephora and is a favourite amongst international beauty journalists and bloggers alike. The product we are most obsessed with is this clarifying and cooling gel mask that gently exfoliates, smooths and resurfaces skin. The mask’s star ingredient is Blue Tansy Oil, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory that reduces and soothes irritated skin. It is also made with White Willow Bark, which is high in salicylic acid (BHA), as well as papaya and pineapple extracts (that are natural AHAs), to gently exfoliate and rid skin of dead cells. Aloe leaf extract rounds up this dream team to gently decongest and unclog pores for a smoother complexion.
Inspired by cryogenic technology, this combines advanced skincare ingredients with an innovative delivery system to visibly tighten and firm the appearance of skin. Cold when applied, this lightweight gel delivers a refreshing burst of coolness to instantly tighten the surface of skin, while providing long-term treatment of firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles. What has us impressed is its combination of a microalgae extract and the ingredient Pullulan, which claims to give an immediate skin tightening effect. You can use this twice a day, as the last step to your skincare regime.
These easy-to-use revitalizing eye patches help to hydrate and instantly improve the look of fine lines, crow’s feet and under-eye darkness. It is infused with multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid that help to attract and retain up to 1,000 times their weight in water from moisture in the atmosphere to lock in hydration. Other ingredients like Ceramide NP, collagen and marshmallow root extract help smooth and soften the appearance of fine lines, caffeine helps de-puff while Arnica lightens dark circles.
