Just in case you’re on the hunt for a new beauty buy this December (either for yourself or someone special), we thought we’d do you a solid and pull together the best beauty launches this month across makeup, skin care and fragrance. You’re welcome!
La Mer The Glow Highlighter
If you’re searching for something that will make your cheeks pop and glow at the same time, you’ve come to the right place. La Mer’s The Glow Highlighter is exactly as the name suggests and is filled with a champagne-coloured cream and a rose-hued powder to make your cheeks seriously stand out without looking OTT.
What should you do when you see a blind pimple pop up on your face? Well, the incorrect answer is to squeeze it, that’s for sure. Zitsticka has just hit the market and we’re hooked - they’re little stickers which are a topical solution loaded with tiny micro-darts of salicylic acid, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to target bacteria and to calm skin down, STAT. Leave it on for a minimum of two hours for best results.
Narrative Lab Solid Perfume
Travel-friendly for jet-setters and easy to carry in your handbag on a day-to-day basis, a solid perfume should be one of your top picks this December. The clever people behind Narrative Lab have kicked it up a notch by including not just one fragrance, but three in the case so you can dial the intensity up or down, depending on your mood. To use, apply the base fragrance, then layer it with a ‘subtle’ or ‘intense’ highlight over the top.
BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Facial Mask
The latest addition to the BIOEFFECT family is the Imprint Hydrogel Facial Mask, which is a jelly-like sheet covered in a hyaluronic acid and glycerin formula to address parched skin (a top summer skin woe). Use as often as twice weekly to significantly improve moisture levels in skin.
WelleCo Nurturing Body Cleanse
When it comes to improving your inner health, Elle Macpherson’s WelleCo has got you covered. Now, she’s also catering to our outer beauty with the launch of her botanical face, hair and body range. The key product to look out for is the Nurturing Body Cleanse, which utilises Australian bush flower remedies to seriously invigorate your body (and mind).
The Beauty Dept. Essential Oil Face Pads
Instead of micellar water or toner, these clever little face pads are loaded with essential oils such as camelia seed, lavender and patchouli oil to hydrate, soothe and prep skin for makeup and other skin care products like serums and moisturiser.
IS Clinical Super Serum Advance+
Hailing from California, IS Clinical is an active skin care brand that should be on your radar. What sets this brand apart from others is its high-quality formulas that are built from botanical ingredients, found in products such as their Super Serum Advance+. You really can’t go past 15 per cent concentration of vitamin C to up your complexion’s radiance this season.
Le Tan Uber Stay Self Tanning Foam
If you’re lazy with self-tanning at home (we’ve got our hands up for this one), then Le Tan’s newest tanning foam could be perfect for you. The brand promises that the formula will stay put for 10 days(!!!) and even comes in different bases, like ash, green and violet, to suit different skin tones.
