New Skincare for November 2020
Topicals Faded Brightening & Clearing Gel
Topicals Faded Brightening & Clearing Gel is a fragrance-free, silicone-free gel that targets dark spots, post-acne marks, dullness, redness and pigmentation. The active ingredients are a skincare lover's DREAM—they include niacinamide, tranexamic acid, alpha arbutin, azelaic acid, kojic acid, licorice root, Centella Asiatica and melatonin. It was just reformulated to make it less stinky!
Kate Somerville Kx Active Concentrates Vitamin B3 + Vitamin C Serum
Kate Somerville Kx Active Concentrates Vitamin B3 + Vitamin C Serum is a fragrance-free and silicone-free serum for brightening and evening out your skin tone. Similar to Summer Fridays CC Me Serum, it combines multiple types of vitamin C (THD ascorbate and ascorbic acid) with niacinamide, in a base of glycerin and fractionated coconut oil. All you need are two drops, twice a day, to see results in one month.
Versed Doctor’s Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask
Versed Doctor's Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask is an exfoliating gel mask that gives you a post-facial glow in just two minutes. You're getting three types of acids (lactic, glycolic and salicylic) and two types of fruit enzymes (pineapple and papaya) in here to tackle dullness, dark spots and pigmentation. Despite all the actives, it won't sting or burn.
Agent Nateur Acid (Wash) Lactic Acid Brightening Cleanser
Agent Nateur Acid (Wash) Lactic Acid Brightening Cleanser is a water-based exfoliating cleanser that's gentle enough for all skin types. Lactic acid is the star ingredient, which works to soften the skin and subtly brighten. For a deeper exfoliation, you can also leave it on for 10 minutes as a mask.
Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Power Brightening Hydra-Gel Eye Patches
Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Power Brightening Hydra-Gel Eye Patches aren't your average gel eye patches—these are loaded with vitamin C to target dark circles and fine lines. Specifically, they contain THD ascorbate, a stable derivative with brightening and collagen-boosting properties. There's also caffeine to shrink puffiness and hyaluronic acid to plump.
Kate Somerville Kx Active Concentrates Squalane + Hyaluronic Serum
Kate Somerville Kx Active Concentrates Squalane + Hyaluronic Serum is a creamy moisturizing serum that plumps your skin and keeps hydration locked in. That's because it contains both humectants (like hyaluronic acid and glycerin) and emollients (like squalane oil and fractionated coconut oil). It's also low in silicone and fragrance-free.
WLDKAT Saffron + Oat Milk Glow Serum
WLDKAT Saffron + Oat Milk Glow Serum is a fragrance-free and silicone-free serum with moisturizing, brightening and calming benefits. Each bottle contains 1,000 mg of broad-spectrum CBD, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The saffron extract boosts your glow, while the oat milk creates a hydrating, milky texture and also helps to soothe your skin.
Odacité Crème de la Nuit
Odacité Crème de la Nuit is a luxe natural night cream infused with an array of active clinical and botanical ingredients. They include vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) to brighten, hyaluronic acid to plump, and CoQ10 to fight free radicals. There's also ashwagandha, pomegranate, algae and kelp, which are calming and hydrating, plus jojoba oil to seal all the goodness in.
Fenty Skin Instant Reset Overnight Recovery Gel-Cream
Fenty Skin Instant Reset Overnight Recovery Gel-Cream is a rich, silicone-free night cream that targets pores and pigmentation while it hydrates your skin. It has a light gel-cream texture, and moisturizes with hyaluronic acid, glycerin and fractionated coconut oil. It's also high in niacinamide, which helps to reduce the look of large pores and fades dark spots over time.
Versed Game Over Acne Drying Treatment
Versed Game Over Acne Drying Treatment is an overnight spot treatment that takes a different approach to drying out emerging pimples. Rather than the usual salicylic acid (which can make skin flaky), it has 10 percent sulfur along with kaolin and bentonite clays. Together, they absorb oil and unclog pores without stripping.
Augustinus Bader The Lip Balm
Augustinus Bader The Lip Balm treats your lips to the same proprietary anti-aging ingredients that are in the brand's cult-favourite Cream. If you're willing to splurge, they're woking here to improve your lips' natural tone, softness and ability to retain moisture.
Herbivore Coconut Milk Body Polish
Herbivore Coconut Milk Body Polish is the latest addition to this brand's line-up of all-natural exfoliating body scrubs. This one polishes away dead skin with sugar crystals, in a base of coconut oil, coconut milk, shea butter and squalane. As usual, it is so moisturizing that you'll be able to skip body lotion.
Glossier Body Hero Exfoliating Bar
Glossier Body Hero Exfoliating Bar is a no-mess take on body scrub—it looks like a bar of soap, and fits conveniently in the palm of your hand. All you need to do is massage it over wet skin, and the natural cellulose and bamboo powder will gently exfoliate.
