THE INGREDIENT YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED
Dr. Barbara Sturm The Better B Niacinamide Serum
Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is your new multitasker. Why? Because it’s a powerhouse ingredient championed for boosting skin-barrier function, reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and plenty more. Particularly effective on super-inflammatory and sensitive-skin types, this serum acts as a great add-on to retinol-based regimens too, as it deeply repairs and hydrates complexions that are red, irritated, or flaky.
THE AT-HOME PEEL
Glo Skin Beauty Hydra-Bright AHA Glow Peel Kit
The Glo Skin Beauty Hydra-Bright AHA Glow Peel is the closest thing we’ve found to a professional peel at home. Using a cocktail of AHAs, this innovative treatment kit is the ultimate skin kick-starter and, when used monthly, resurfaces skin by lifting dead cells, leaving your complexion looking incredibly smooth and feeling refreshed, with dark spots and fine lines softened. Set aside a little extra time once a month and the results will make it well worth the investment.
THE SCENTS THAT UPLIFT
Cartier Perfumes Les Collections de Parfum
For many, a fragrance isn’t just a scent, it cites an emotion. So, inspired by life’s joyful moments (of which the maison’s master ‘nose’ Mathilde Laurent has captured six), each perfume has been housed in an elegant flacon inspired by a Cartier vase created in 1926. What makes this collection so intoxicating? It’s the unexpected notes of petitgrain, leather, gin, peppercorn, and musk, which combine for an impactful curation of scents that are perfect for gifting.
THE MULTITASKING OIL
One Ocean Beauty Ultra Hydrating Algae Oil
The rich texture of One Ocean Beauty’s formula makes it a real treat to use on skin and hair – and the ingredients more than measure up, too. Think nutrient-rich sea lettuce from New Zealand, plus seven essential oils, including algae, coconut, sweet almond, jojoba, cotton, sesame and argan for deep rehydration.
THE OVERNIGHT SKIN SUCCESS
Noble Panacea The Absolute Rejuvenation Night Balm
It’s no secret that targeted skincare works particularly well overnight during skin’s repairing phase, so, come morning, you look rested even if you don’t feel it. What’s more, the retinol and lactic acid in Noble Panacea’s balm works double duty throughout the night to jump-start cell turnover and collagen production, leaving your complexion looking calm and rested.
THE SCIENTIFIC WONDER
Emma Lewisham Supernatural Vitamin A Face Oil
From the brand that’s setting new standards in modern natural and sustainable skincare, Emma Lewisham’s Vitamin A Face Oil thoroughly deserves its cult status. Blended with bakuchiol – a plant-based alternative to retinol that’s just as effective – this oil is not only a real pleasure to use, but it sinks in fast and works remarkably quickly, even on notoriously tricky-to-treat hyperpigmentation. Use it daily to achieve a brighter, more even-looking skin tone within a month.
THE HYDRATING HAIR OIL
Hair Rituel by Sisley Hair Precious Hair Care Oil Glossiness & Nutrition
Beloved by our skin and hair, oils promise shinier, softer locks without the need for silicon, which can build up to leave hair looking limp over time. Best for dry, brittle and color-treated strands, oils add a suppleness that creams can’t – and the combination of passion-fruit, shea, cotton and moringa oils in this formula is ideal for smoothing cuticles, rehydrating dry ends, and creating a protective film around each fiber. Trust us, hair looks and feels remarkably healthier after just one use.
THE SECRET TO BETTER SLEEP
Victoria Beckham Beauty + Slip VB’s Power Sleep Set
The promise of better sleep and better skin? That’s the premise behind Victoria Beckham Beauty’s latest collaboration with Augustinus Bader and Slip. The Cell Rejuvenating Power Serum works to hydrate and infuse skin with vitamins, while the Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer enhances radiance and blurs pores. The finishing touch is Slip’s cushioned sleep mask, which blocks out light to aid a restful night’s sleep, fast.
THE NEW-GEN HYDRATOR
Irene Forte Forte Attivo Hyaluronic Acid Vials
Ultra-low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is the smallest size of HA there is, and the lower the weight, the further it will penetrate skin – which is why Irene Forte’s Forte Attivo Hyaluronic Acids Vials reinvigorate cells so quickly. What’s more, these handy travel-sized vials make it easy to keep in your carry-on bag for that essential mid-air hydration hit.
THE SPF THAT DELIVERS
Révive Soleil Supérieur Body Broad Spectrum SPF 50
It took five years for Révive’s Dr Gregory Bays Brown to develop this perfect combination of anti-agers and UVA/UVB protection – and we’re impressed. The formula is fully transparent (so you don’t need to worry about white streaks), and with potent antioxidants combined with SPF 50, you’re safe in the knowledge that you’re fully protected – just remember to reapply every two hours.
