With #SkinCareMonth now in full swing, we've a swathe of new launches to instantly upgrade your daily regime and inject some much-needed excitement back into the humdrum of face maintenance… so, looking for something to spice up your skin care routine? You've come to an excellent place…

Packed with kakadu plum extract - a phenomenally potent source of brightening, free radical-fighting vitamin C - DERMAdoctor's {High Potency Evening Oil} is brilliant for brightening post-blemish scars and dark marks (consider this a boon for any Death Eaters). Essential if you're plagued by pigmentation or in need of something soothing that will lessen acne's aftermath, this unifies and fortifies to restore strength and vibrancy to scarred or sun-speckled complexions.

Uniting Aurelia's wonderfully creamy and heavenly scented {Miracle Cleanser} with seven ultra-soft and gentle bamboo muslin cloths, this gentle make up-melting formula is great for sensitised, congested, dry or stressed-out complexions. Ideal for dissolving the day's dirt without leaving skin feeling overexposed, this unctuous concoction respects every skin type to keep your face feeling content.

Has your skin gone to 'pot'? Tapping into a key trend for 2018, MGC Derma's {CBD Stem Cells & Algae All Night Cream} is packed with (non-psychoactive!!) cannabinoids which are powerful, bioavailable antioxidants which work to soothe and strengthen fragile, ageing skin. Perfect for those who're concerned about lost elasticity, dullness or signs of sagging, this overnight treatment boasts CBD oil in conjunction with brightening vitamin C, regenerative stem cells and nourishing algae to keep your skin stronger for longer.

Perfectly pink and deceptively hi-tech (don't be deceived by its pastel outsides…), Saturday Skin's {Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream} is jam-packed with date seed and precious fruit oils to illuminate eyes and 'refresh' puffy, sleep-deprived peepers. The product of a group of SoKo science labs which have collaborated to help optimise your skin cells' 'golden phase' (a monthly week-long period when skin reaches its 'peak' regeneration - it usually coincides with ovulation - and you can read much more about it, {here}), this eye cream is eye-deal for those who crave well-rested radiance.

Queen of the skin care scene, Kate Somerville has landed on Cult Beauty's online shelves and you will find a swathe of acne-fighting, glow-bestowing, youth-boosting essentials to revitalise your 'boring' skin care wardrobe. We're besotted with the brilliantly brightening {ExfoliKate Glow} - a daily hydrator that's laced with a cocktail of gentle resurfacing actives which tingle to keep your skin beautifully luminous - or reach for the fast-acting, zit-zapping {EradiKate Treatment} to banish unwelcome uprisings… a must-have for every complexion crisis!

New from Meghan Markle's favourite facialist, Sarah Chapman's {Instant Miracle Mask} is a fabulous, flash-effect, peel-off treatment which combines advanced skin technologies with tried-and-tested clays and precious, plant-derived ingredients to brighten, tone and tighten in a jiffy. With nourishing and fortifying extracts from the argan plant, alongside clarifying Moroccan lava clay, this minimises pores and has a visible (and magical!) skin-firming and line-smoothing impact in just fifteen minutes! Perfect when you need to look amazing in mere moments…

Blow off some steam and make your skin care regime go the extra mile with Panasonic's {Facial Steamer} which harnesses nano-ionic technology (fancy!) to create the tiniest, ultra-fine steam particles. Essential for de-gunking pores and replenishing much-needed moisture, this also helps kick-start creation of collagen, so your face feels firmer and beautifully dewy with less-visible pores and far fewer breakouts. We'll steam to that!
