Well, it’s official. After toiling away for a year plagued by a neverending pandemic, we have finally made it to 2021. Emotionally bruised and showing signs of general wear and tear, we’re in desperate need of some TLC and luckily, there’s a parade of new beauty products to help us recoup.
From revitalising skin care to nourishing hair heroes and aromatherapy-inspired room sprays, these are our top picks for a 2021 refresh:
Drunk Elephant Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Spray
After a quick skin fix? This skin-balancing spritz is packed full of amino and fatty acids, electrolytes and ceramides that work to reinforce a healthy microbiome. Fermented sake extract, kombucha, and hops pump up this face spray formula, dousing skin with a soothing and restorative mist.
AVEDA Nutriplenish™ Daily Moisturizing Treatment
Mango butter, coconut oil, sand ginger and pomegranate seed oil are the hydrating ingredients that power this detangling leave-in treatment. Simply comb through a healthy portion of this hardworking moisturiser through the ends of wet strands and style as desired for a refreshed healthy bonnet.
Morphe M2 Lippie Lullaby Lip Mask
Amp up your lips pout factor with this replenishing overnight lip mask from Morphe. Squalane, murumuru butter, hibiscus flower extract, and watermelon fruit extract target dehydrated, crusty smackers and work while you sleep for pillowy, soft lips by morning.
CHRISTOPHE ROBIN Regenerating Serum With Prickly Pear Oil
Naturally sourced botanical oils and butters lie at the heart of the formula of this regenerating hair serum. Smooth, supple and strengthened, this hair hero aims to give back life to dull, parched strands, plus with just a few drops of this silicone-free elixir, hair is protected from heat up to 230°c whilst also improving the appearance of split-ends and frizz.
OSEA Vagus Nerve Pillow Mist
Formulated with a good night’s sleep in mind, this room and linen mist can be spritzed in the boudoir and on pillows before bedtime for a well-rested and uninterrupted snooze. The soothing scent of chamomile, lavender and lemon tea tree oils will whisk you away to a nocturnal world of sweet dreams. No more sleepless nights in 2021.
sans [ceuticals] Barrier Restore Body + Hand Butter
New Zealand sourced manuka honey and kawakawa extract accompany niacinamide and oat extract in this skin-nourishing concoction. A body and hand butter, this ultra-moisturising multi-tasker restores the skin’s natural barrier and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skin - including pesky eczema and dermatitis.
