6 new skin care heroes tipped to revolutionise your ritual

Whether there’s a ‘hole’ in your regime or you’re just in the mood for something new, our latest skin care launches tackle every key concern – from breakouts to heatwaves (hallelujah). From replenishing spritzes to supercharged treatments, read on for six of the latest new arrivals deserving of coveted space in your over-crammed cabinet. Time for a midsummer ‘spring clean’ wethinks… (like you needed a reason to splurge on new potions)?

From a brand that needs no introduction, Youth To The People’s new Exfoliation Station  pairs discovery sizes of brightening Kombucha Power Toner with Yerba Mate Energy Facial, to quickly revive and revitalise skin that could do with a radiance boost. Exfoliating physically and chemically, this formidable duo refines and resurfaces lacklustre skin as it works to eradicate pore-clogging debris and lessen congestion to help prevent breakouts.

For those who like skin care with quirk, Farmacy’s latest launch – Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin-C Eye Cream – instantly revitalises neglected under-eyes – feeding them with caffeine, hyaluronic acid and strengthening peptides to bring radiance to the sleep-deprived. Plumping fine lines and bringing light to shadowed contours without any artificial fragrances, this fast-absorbing, firming and smoothing potion even sits comfortably under make up – never pilling, creasing or feeling greasy.

A one-cream-wonder, Spectacle Skincare has made its long-awaited debut at Cult Beauty and the brand’s Performance Crème Crème boasts a formula that hydrates, smooths and soothes with a beautiful primer-like consistency that effortlessly simplifies your skin care ritual by tackling multiple skin concerns at once. Come summer or winter, a sweaty workout or a drab day in the office, this cream will feel comfortable and keep your skin looking healthy throughout.

Rinse the day away and leave a radiant glow in its stead with Kopari Beauty’s Tropical Glow Cleanser: an exfoliating gel cleanser that’s gentle enough for daily use – thanks to an infusion of ultra-hydrating coconut water – but still manages to shift dirt, make up and dead skin cells. Striking the perfect balance of clarifying and moisturising, this luscious formula is powered by papaya and pineapple enzymes to gently break down and dissolve dead skin cells, while aloe helps to lift daily grime and soothe your skin. Finally, coconut water lends the cleanser its abundance of electrolytes, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to effectively flood your skin with comforting hydration (no post-cleanse tightness here!).

And last but not least comes another game-changing creation from Algenist. When fine lines, bags, puffiness or dark circles are getting you down, try the Triple Algae Eye Renewal Balm. Equipped with alguronic acid – an algae-derived compound that thrives in the world’s harshest climates – Algenist’s super-charged range of regenerative skin care is fuel for the laziest skin cells – ‘revving’ their engines to stimulate skin’s manufacture of all of the precious components that keep your complexion plump, supple and glowing with health. In fact, this balm is clinically tested and proven to swiftly brighten, strengthen, smooth, protect, depuff, hydrate and prime skin.
