It’s 2019 and we’re no longer accepting the one-size-fits-all thing when it comes to beauty. We’re now a whole lot savvier about what we purchase, and we’re all about catering to our unique personal needs. And why shouldn’t we be?
Beauty and skin care are a very personal thing, and wasting money on products that don’t work for you is just pointless (read: we’re way too poor for that kinda stuff). So, it makes complete sense that customisable beauty is on the rise, with many brands now offering a range of products that are completely personalised and unique to you.
Where’s the best place to start if you want to experience customisable beauty for yourself? We’ve pulled together five of our favourite products to help you get started.
Clinique iD Moisturiser
Whether you’re looking to target lines and wrinkles, fatigue, uneven skin tone, pores or irritation, Clinique iD Moisturiser allows you to hydrate and treat your own personal skin care concerns. Start off by choosing one of three hydrating bases – the Hydrating Jelly, Moisturising Lotion or Oil-Control Gel – then mix in one of the five different active concentrate cartridges, each formulated for specific skin concerns (there’s a whopping 15 different combinations). These cartridges are designed to fit right inside the moisturisers, and together they pump out a precise dose - 90 per cent hydration base, and 10 per cent active concentrate. How cool is that?!
The Lip Lab lipsticks
Forever after THAT nude lipstick? We feel you. It’s a hard slog searching for ‘The One’. But Australian brand The Lip Lab, who have a string of boutique stores around the country, are making the lipstick game a whole lot easier. You basically pop in for chat with one of the professional lip colour consultants (you can book online), before choosing your shade and finish (you can even add a fragrance to some products). You then just sit back and wait for the magic to happen, before going home with a collection of bespoke makeup. You lucky thing, you.
FOREO LUNA fofo
Say hello to your own personal advanced cleansing system: FOREO LUNA fofo. Available in an array of delightful colours, the silicone facial brush is powered by artificial intelligence, which uses advanced sensors to measure everything from how hydrated your skin is to your actual skin type. A sophisticated algorithm then processes this feedback via the FOREO app to customise the LUNA fofo’s frequency, intensity and duration of pulsations on the skin while you cleanse.
Function of Beauty Shampoo and Conditioner
Never settle for your usual ‘does-it-all’ shampoo and conditioner (or god forbid, the ol’ two-in-one) ever again. By using your answers from their online ‘hair quiz’ (it asks you some questions about your hair type, scalp type, hair goals, etc.), Function of Beauty creates a unique shampoo and conditioner formulation filled with natural, effective ingredients that *actually* suit your hair type and needs. Your personalised haircare is then delivered to your door, and your answers are saved to your profile for when you want to reorder.
Jo Malone Fragrance Combining™
Did you know Jo Malone does customisable perfumes? If you hop online or visit a store, you can create your own bespoke scent by choosing your favourite type of fragrance (citrus, fruity, light floral, floral, spicy or woody) and selecting your own unique combination to make it warmer or fresher. This. Changes. Everything.
