Our monthly beauty roundup of lash-saving serums, zen shower scrubs, and powerfully plumping lotions.  

Follow from left to right, starting from Clinique’s Moisture Surge Hydro-Infused Lotion.

Make a splash

Hit dry skin with a splash of Clinique’s juicy new Moisture Surge Hydro-Infused Lotion ($72), containing an exclusive aloe vera bio-ferment and hyaluronic acid complex for fast-acting and long-lasting hydration and skin-smoothing. Use twice daily after cleansing and before serums and moisturisers, or, for an immediate hydrating hit, soak a cotton pad then leave on the dry area for 3-5 minutes.

Brow down

New from affordable cult beauty favourites The Ordinary is its Multi-Peptide Lash & Brow Serum, ($33), a concentrated, lightweight serum utilising four separate peptide technologies a well as tea tree, red clover and larch wood extracts, caffeine and actives designed to promote the look of thicker, fuller and healthier lashes and brows. After cleansing and drying the application area, apply a thin layer along the lash line
and eyebrows morning and night.

Winter warmer

Elevate your shower experience with Soap & Glory’s Perfect Zen Warming Body Scrub ($20 at Mecca). Applied to wet skin, this innovative, pampering polisher scented with lavender and tonka bean creates a unique warming sensation while scrubbing away dead skin cells, dirt and impurities to leave skin looking radiant and feeling superbly smooth.

Lashing out

A gentle and refreshing way to cleanse lashes, brows and eyelids, RevitaLash’s newly formulated Micellar Water Lash Wash ($54) utilises aloe, chamomile, anti-ageing botanicals and natural humectant panthenol to draw out impurities, removing makeup, dirt and oil without drying the skin. The oil-free formula is suitable for sensitive eyes, lash extensions and contact lens wearers.

Natural healing

Protect coloured hair and the environment at the same time with Kiwi brand Holistic Hair’s new Quinoa
Pro NPNF Colour Protect range ($37 each). Made in New Zealand in 100 per cent recycled plastic bottles, the plant-based shampoo and conditioner are formulated to slow hair colour wash-out for improved colour retention and contains natural goodies such as murumuru and mango butter, New Zealand harakeke flax leaf extract and marshmallow root to support hydration for softer, stronger, glossier, easier-to-style hair.

Plum power

The latest Vitamin C power product from Antipodes, Gospel Vitamin C Skin- Glow Gel Cleanser ($44)
promises healthier-looking, brighter skin via its unique combination of Kakadu plum (which contains up
to 100 times the Vitamin C of oranges) and the brand’s signature antioxidant-rich Vinanza Grape & Kiwi
compound. Massage onto damp skin in the morning before rinsing with water, for a delicious fresh clean.
