The Upcoming Skincare Launches At Sephora We’re Most Excited About
#1: Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment, $148
This beauty brand is new to Sephora and is a favourite amongst international beauty journalists and bloggers alike. Known to be the brand’s best-seller, this potent lactic acid treatment helps to brighten dull complexions by exfoliating dead skin cells and clogged pores. With continued use, this reportedly reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation while treating visible signs of ageing to reveal a younger and healthier-looking complexion. It also contains licorice to boost skin’s radiance.
#2: Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, $69
We already raved about Tatcha and this cult favourite, a silky, fine mist is packed with more than 20 per cent botanical oils and humectants to hydrate and improve the skin’s moisture barrier. It can be used under and over makeup to impart a healthy, luminous glow to your complexion.
#3: Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask, $110
As its name suggests, this actually heats up on your skin but don’t worry, it won’t burn your face. Apply the creamy mask let it sit for about three to five minutes before using water to massage the product in. This activates a warm sensation to open up pores and optimise nutrient absorption to reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, treat dullness, uneven skin tone and rough texture.
#4: Kora Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask 2-In-1, $68
If you want brighter, clearer skin fast, then this mask is for you. Its key ingredient, turmeric, contains potent antioxidants to protect skin against harmful environmental aggressors, delay signs of aging, as well as brighten and even out skin tone. If that’s not impressive enough, it relieves inflammation, reduces redness and calms sensitive complexions.
Pomegranate extract infuses skin with rich moisture while boosting elasticity and firmness for a softer, smoother and firmer complexion.
#6: Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser, $104
An effective and vitamin-rich cleanser that breaks down makeup, dirt and oil buildup without stripping away skin’s essential oils. It even contains an Estate Grown Beauty Complex, which is made with a blend of arnica, borage, alfalfa, elderberry, meadowsweet and calendula to impart minerals, vitamins and nutrients for healthier-looking skin.
We all know how important exfoliating is if you want brighter skin and this new product just makes it so much more fun and enjoyable to do. These pre-soaked puffs (note: they can actually be used three times before disposing of it) foam up once you start massaging it onto your skin. They are infused with three doses of naturally derived AHAs and fermented ingredients to gently yet effectively buff away dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, softer and brighter complexion.
#8: Kopari Coconut Face Cream, $66
Rich in high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, this lightweight moisturiser not only delivers moisture to dry skin but also helps to treat visible signs of ageing. What we seriously love about this is its emulium mellifer, which is a flexible climate-changing oil that is infused with a new smart emulsifier to provide protection from seasonal variations. In dry climates, it functions as a rich buttery cream and in humid tropical climates, it transforms into an ultra-light moisturiser.
#9: This Works In Transit Pollution Shield, $50
We know all about the negative effects pollution can cause, so when we came across this mist, it was an immediate hit for us. Saturated with a host of ingredients including polysaccharides to capture carbon particles, heavy metals and prematurely ageing particulate matter before they enter the skin and clog the pores. Hyaluronic Acid works together with chamomile extract and aloe vera to soothe and calm while allantoin promotes fast cell regeneration.
#10: Allies of Skin 1A All-Day Pollution Repair Mask, $149
The improved formulation is now 50 per cent more concentrated and a features a new key ingredient known as teprenone. This active ingredient helps to strengthen skin’s cellular lining and also aids in fading dark spots.
