Gatineau Paris, Age Benefit Youth Revitalising Oil-Serum 

This serum has a bi-phase formula that blends Persian silk tree extract, chestnut seed extract and Barbary Seed extract to deliver a European-forest size serving of antioxidants and lipids to the skin. These actives are complimented by meadowfoam, rosehip and camellia oils that lock in the goodness while providing a protective barrier. Perfect for dryer skin types looking to up their glow-factor. 

Gatineau Paris, £75.00 ($142.00 AU)

Balnea Premium Body Lotion in Geranium, Sandalwood & Neroli 

I prefer a “savey” option for my body lotion. After all, you’re applying top-to-toe sometimes twice a day (depending on how sweaty my afternoon pilates session got), the cost of luxury body treatments can become exorbitant. 

The Balnea Body Lotion is a perfect “get the job done “option with Vitamin E, essential oils and seed, fruit and plant extracts. With 99% of its ingredients naturally derived and no mineral oil, parabens, artificial colours or PEGs, this is a supermarket product you can feel good about.

Woolworths, RRP: $7.50 

The Finishing Touch Flawless Dermaplane Glow 

Professional dermaplanning has been trending for some time – the treatment removes peach fuzz (allowing for a smoother application of makeup) and gently exfoliates the skin. Flawless Dermaplane Glow provides great results at home. The ergonomic design houses a professional-grade Japanese stainless steel blade and built-in LED light, ensuring you never miss a spot. 

Chemist Warehouse and Priceline, RRP: $24.99 

XX Revolution Cloud CompleXXion Primer

Revolution have made a name for themselves creating innovative, Instagram worthy makeup products and their new Cloud Complexion Primer is no different. The innovative souffle texture blurs and fills pores, while imparting a ethereal glow. You’ll have to exercise patience before getting your hands on this killer-filter product – it’s sold out everywhere.

Keep an eye out for a restock at the  Revolution Beauty website – at RRP: $30.00 it’s a steal!

Charlotte Tilbury, Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Foundation 

A new release from cult-cosmetics brand Charlotte Tilbury – what better way to ring in the new year? I’ve already written about how much I love her Hollywood Flawless Filter, so I was excited to try another complexion product from the range. The hydrating base provides medium coverage with a feather-weight finish. Hyaluronic acid plumps the skin, while rose complex provides a complexion boost. Coconut extract helps the skin retain water throughout the day, alleviating the dry, tight feeling that can set in around 1pm at an air-conditioned office.

The formula also caters to those blessed with more productive oil glands! Charlotte Tilbury’s patented Bix’Active complex decreases oiliness and shine throughout the day, making it a perfect option for oily and dry skin types. 

Mecca, $65.00 

BeautyBio Cryo Dual-Ended Roller 

Cryotherapy refers literally to “cold therapy.” It is a treatment used for everything from skin tightening, migraine reduction, stress relief and chronic pain reduction. I personally find at home cryotherapy helps me very literally chill out. Whether you’re using it pre-event for skin sculpting benefits or as a self-care moment after a stressful day, the Beauty Bios Cryo Roller makes both options easy. 

Newly launched through Mecca, the BeautyBio Cryo Roller makes both easy. The rollers are crafted from professional-grade stainless steel, which provides even application of cold therapy across the facial area. The roller lowers skin temperature to 45F – the temperature proven to increase micro-circulation and collagen production.

Mecca, $127.00
