A Magical Retinol Face Stick + More Beauty News
Including more inspired holiday gifts, and a new concealer and moisturizer which will leave you looking flawless in the midst of winter skin woes.
Peace Out Skincare launches a retinol face stick to target fine lines in a snap
After launching their Retinol eye stick a year ago, Peace Out Skincare is following up their success with a genius new face stick to help you really zero in on ditching pesky fine lines. Safe for sensitive skin or new retinol-users, it contains three percent encapsulated retinol along with vitamin c and a fruit enzyme blend. Its balm-like texture makes it easy to slide on, so you can smooth away the first signs of aging, as well as target bumpy skin texture and loss of firmness. Apply at the very end of your evening routine to any areas in question (which could just mean all over your face.)
Nyx’s new hydrating concealer is foolproof for winter
If your concealer tends to look dry and cakey this time of year, Nyx’s new concealer serum could be the medium-coverage answer to your prayers. Buildable and fortified with hydrating and antioxidant green tea, tremella mushroom and cica (a healing herb especially popular in Korea), the creamy concealer has a satin finish and can be used on face and body to effectively cover up redness, hyperpigmentation, acne and under-eye circles. Available in thirteen shades, it’s a makeup bag must-have to camouflage your seasonal skin woes (and beyond.)
The Dezi Skin holiday skincare kit is here
Mexican-American makeup artist and Youtuber extraordinaire Desi Perkins is known for her jaw-dropping complexion and equally flawless lineup of skincare appropriately named Dezi Skin. The range had garnered quite the following thanks to highly concentrated formulas (the Claro Que C Serum contains 15% vitamin c) including fruit extracts from Mexico, which all come at reasonable price points. Its popularity is also undoubtedly due to its undeniably glam and social media-friendly packaging. If you’ve been wanting to give the line a spin or have a Desi-lover on your holiday list, their new holiday kit, which contains the aforementioned vitamin c serum, oxygen mist (for prepping and setting) and new overnight moisture mask, is hard to beat in its uber-chic packaging, which barely requires an added bow.
Cult-favourite Glow Recipe launches a juicy new face cream
Glow Recipe has launched their first refillable product in the form of their new Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream, a follow-up to their successful serum of the same name. Perfect for those with dry or combination skin, the seemingly weightless, whipped gel-like cream hydrates skin while keeping it in balance with a blended extract of three anti-oxidant-rich plums, peptides and multiple weights of hyaluronic acid. It’s a juicy addition to your Glow Recipe collection that’s ideal for layering up your skincare without feeling weighed down.
Glossier releases their beauty bag in limited edition “Snow” white
If Glossier’s pink and red makeup bag is a beacon for millennial self-care, than their new limited edition holiday bag will surely call out to holiday-obsessives (and perhaps those who prefer a more neutral colour palette.) Crafted from the same material often used to make ski gear, the new bag comes in a crisp shade of “snow” and is complete with embossed G’s and a sharp orange liner for an extra-swaggy touch. The bag is much-loved for it’s roomy design and easy-to-wipe-clean vegan leather exterior. If you’re hitting the road this Christmas, you might just want to make it your ultimate travel companion.
