We’re like magpies when it comes to beauty products, and to us, pretty much every beauty product is shining silver. Or at the very least, worth a go! Lucky for us, we’ve heard about three new product launches this week so we tracked them down to see what’s what.
#1 A wrinkle in time
Any big city’s the same; lots of cars = lots of pollution. And lots of pollution = not good for our skin. Thankfully for us, HydroPeptide has launched its new HydroStem Serum aimed at correcting and preventing wrinkles, defying ageing and protecting against pollution damage. Priced at Dhs820, it combines rejuvenating peptides with plant extracts, as well as antioxidant-rich botanical stem cells to nourish skin cells, enhance vibrancy and luminosity and create more radiant skin. All you’ll need to do is apply a small amount to your clean face and neck, both morning and evening, and follow with your appropriate moisturiser and sunscreen for optimum results.
#2 Illuminate your face
Tips & Toes is the proud stockist of a brand new gel-to-powder liquid highlighter that glides on and sets in a glassy, satin glow for day-long radiance. Farsáli’s Jelly Beam illuminator - priced at Dhs180 - is infused with sodium hyaluronate and seaweed extract to give you show-stopping skin that’s nourished, hydrated and radiant. Use it alone as a highlighter to enhance your features, mix with your foundation for a customised glow, smudge onto eyelids for a shimmery sheen or even pair it with one of the Farsáli Elixirs to apply to shoulders, legs or decolletage.
#3 The perfect finish
Everyone loves a happy face! Benefit’s new Hello Happy Soft Blur foundation is a lightweight, natural matte finish foundation with light to medium coverage, which evens out skintone and blurs imperfections with soft-focus optical blurring spheres. And it’s getting rave reviews; in a study or more than 100 women, 96% said it blurs imperfections and 95% says it gives natural coverage. Sounds good to us!
