From skin-balancing biotechnology and beloved French serums to groundbreaking bronzing
and body washes for those sensitive types, here’s what the 03 team are trying this month.
- Sweet tan
Aussie faux bronze brand SugarBaby has launched two groundbreaking new products to ensure you’re tan-ready for summer. For a deep colour, SugarBaby Tan Of The Hour Ultra Dark Instant Bronze ($33) is an ultra-dark instant self-tan crème that instantly tints skin as it effortlessly glides on. For a more gradual glow, Get Glowing Glow Drops (pictured, $27) can be customised by simply adding the desired amount to your moisturiser, serum or oil.
- Getting scientific
Created by Kiwi cell biologist and scientist Dr Iona Weir, skin science company Atopis has released two powerful reformulations of its bestselling ranges – the Intensive Restore and Radiant Balance systems – featuring Dr Weir’s breakthrough invention Myrecil, an internationally patented, New Zealand-made biotechnology using all-natural ingredients that works with the body’s inbuilt cellular systems to reverse damage, reduce breakouts, sensitivities and irritations and boost skin health.

- Bonjour to beautiful skin
Beloved of celebs and already sold out around the world, NZers can now finally get their hands on French favourite Avène’s groundbreaking Hyaluron Activ B3 anti-ageing range (pictured: Concentrated Plumping Serum, $82). Put simply, the range promises to go a step further than just fighting the signs of ageing – instead actually stopping the ageing process spreading to other cells, by using key ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to help re-plump skin that has lost its natural volume.
- Here comes the sun
For those days when all your skin needs is a powerful sunscreen plus a hint of colour, Bondi Sands’ new addition to its Fragrance Free range – SPF 50+ Fragrance Free Tinted Face Fluid ($21) – combines broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection with instant skin hydration, with a universal sheer tint for subtle coverage. This ultra-lightweight formula can be worn alone or under makeup and also boasts up to 72 hours of hydration.
- Good one
Part of newly relaunched Kiwi body care co Only Good, this creamy Sensitive Coconut Milk Body Wash (900ml, $19) has a nutrient-rich formula designed to nurture and nourish your body – even if your skin is a little touchy. SyriCalm (a natural ingredient derived from mushrooms) reduces inflammation, while prickly pear protects skin and jojoba oil supports the lipid barrier. We’re also partial to the chic packaging – perfect for stylish showers.
