10 Upcoming Skincare Launches From Sephora We're Incredibly Excited About
#1: Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel, price unavailable
This two-step daily peel treatment pads come in three variations — one contains three types of acids, the other has five, while the most potent one is made with seven different acids — and each comes with two pads. The first is formulated with the mentioned acids to exfoliate skin, while the second (read: step two) is a more targeted treatment to tackle signs of ageing, stimulate collagen production, protect skin against free radicals and more. The result: luminous, radiant and clear skin.
A moisturiser that is equipped with SPF, protects skin from blue light and contains a naturally-occurring combination of antioxidants and skin repair actives? Consider us intrigued. Not only does this shield skin from harmful environmental aggressors, it also has a lightweight, whipped formula that goes on smoothly on the skin and absorbs quickly. The best part? It is oil-free so you don’t have to worry about it clogging up your pores and is even suitable for those with combination and oilier skin types.
#3: Indie Lee Banish Stick, $41
New-to-town clean beauty brand Indie Lee’s targeted acne treatment is a quick solution that is fuss-free (it comes in a slim tube), portable (you can easily throw it in your bag and apply it on top of makeup) and effective. It contains salicylic acid and other soothing ingredients to reduce the appearance of redness and irritation of the existing acne.
#4: Kora Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask, $68
We all want to wake up to smooth, plump and glowing skin so of course, when we heard that this overnight sleeping mask aims to do just that, we were sold. Plus, it has a lightweight, bouncy gel texture that does not feel heavy on the skin. The formula contains coconut milk, caviar lime extract and certified organic silver ear mushroom to boost skin’s hydration levels (which in turn, plumps up fine lines and wrinkles), reduces redness, brightens and evens out skin tone.
#5: Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream, $99
If you loved the brand’s Dewy Skin Mist, here’s some good news for you: Tatcha just released a cream version of it and plus, it is reportedly Kim Kardashian’s favourite moisturiser now. It has a silky texture and is made with Japanese purple rice and a cocktail of botanical extracts to replenish and seal in moisture, restore ceramides that can be lost over time and impart a radiant, luminous glow to the skin.
#6: Kate Somerville Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment, $95
Suitable for all skin types (even sensitised and acne-prone), this leave-on night exfoliating treatment is powered by a duo of 10 per cent AHA and fruit enzymes to slough away dead skin cells and refine pores for smoother and more radiant skin. Bonus: it can be used every night (it is that gentle) and even aids in the absorption of other skincare products that follow.
#7: Dr. Jart+ V7 Pink Toning, $77
This brightening moisturiser has a natural pink colour to help even out skin tone and brighten the overall complexion. It is also made with seven different types of vitamins to provide antioxidant care, treat wrinkles and deeply hydrate for plump, smooth skin.
#8: Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Power Serum, $149
Made with a vitamin C derivative that is said to be 50 times more potent than traditional vitamin C and further powered by vitamin E and ferulic acid, this not only targets dull, lifeless complexions but also improves the look of wrinkles and helps firm up the skin.
#9: Dr Roebuck's Icebergs Hydrating Mask, $36
Formulated with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and red algae, this gel-type mask helps to attract and retain moisture while providing anti-ageing benefits. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties to heal and soothe redness and sensitised complexions.
#10: Arcona Celestial Activating Essence, $73
We are all for multi-beneficial, fuss-free and easy-to-use skincare products so naturally, this has to be one of our favourites. It is packaged in a spritz bottle and helps to hydrate, brighten and treat signs of ageing thanks to a blend of potent antioxidants. Bonus: its IG-worthy packaging.
