Travel gamechanger Pocket-sized natural multi-stick BabyButtface, $55, is a gamechanger for skin and travel. It’s lightweight to carry, multi-purpose and like the name says, leaves the skin feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom. To cleanse, roll it on your face, massage with dry fingers, add water and rinse. It can also be used as a hydration stick, primer, lip and brow balm. Skin Food for the body Weleda has expanded its award-winning Skin Food range with a brand new Body Lotion, $29.90, for all over moisturising. The nongreasy, fast-absorbing formulas are gorgeous to use and include an allergy-friendly Unscented Body Lotion, which soothes irritated skin and relieves itching. Developed with dermatologists, it’s perfume- and alcohol-free. The bottles are also made of 97 per cent recycled content (excluding lid and label) and are recyclable in New Zealand. Bright eyes Emma Lewisham’s new eye crème is well worth the wait! Containing 100 per cent natural ingredients, Emma Lewisham Skin Reset Eye Crème, $112, contains 18 scientifically proven, high-performing active ingredients and two pioneering liposomal delivery systems to support collagen production and deeply hydrate, plumping the skin from the inside out. Plus, like all Emma Lewisham products, it comes in a refillable package. Lip lovers Did you know that our lips are made up of between three to six di erent layers, compared to our skin which has 16 layers? That’s why our lips are more easily a ected by our environment and the elements. Luxury lip care brand Henné o ers a range of certified organic non-toxic products designed to exfoliate, soften and deeply hydrate. We especially love the Lip Serum treatment, $82. Hair tools to lust after Lust Hair Care Detangling eco hair brush, $14.90, and coco hair brush, $19.90, are expert detanglers – plus, they’re gentle on the environment, made from bioplastic produced with renewable wheat straw, coconut husk and recycled PP. Gentle retinol treatment I’ve got sensitive skin so was wary about trying this one but confess I’m in love with Jeuneora’s Renewing Booster*, $58, suitable for all skin. Designed for use up to four times a week, it contains advanced retinol, aloe vera and L22 (a patented lipid complex of botanically sourced lipids including jojoba and olive) – no wonder it’s so dreamy. The packaging contains 20 per cent recycled plastic and is recyclable through Jeuneora’s free TerraCycle Recycling Programme.
