New year, new cosmetics launches

The Olehenriksen Lemonade Smoothing Scrub does double duty to reveal instantly smoother skin through both chemical and physical exfoliation. The powerhouse AHAs in this sugary concoction work to help dissolve the ‘glue’ keeping dead skin cells hanging on (even after they have overstayed their welcome) and help reduce the look of pores.

With one sweep of the scrub, the ultra-fine sugar exfoliants kick in and sweep away rough skin. This scrub is also infused with holy basil and chamomile to help calm and soothe your skin. Plus, it is clean, vegan, cruelty free and gluten free.

If you are in a rush, throw on the slush! Scrub, rinse and dash on with your day but if you want to take your sweet time (and with its addictively yummy lemon sugar scent, I can’t blame you), leave a thin layer on your skin for two to five minutes (almost like a mask), then scrub away. Olehenriksen Lemonade Smoothing Scrub (€32) is now available in Boots.

Dermalogica has just launched a brand-new neck cream to combat ‘tech neck’. This lightweight, roll-on serum immediately tightens skin, and tones it over time, for a more visibly lifted and sculpted appearance. Neck Fit Contour Serum takes on wrinkles and creases with high-performance Flex Lift Contour Technology, which acts like invisible mesh to provide a visible lifting and tightening effect.

It also smooths fine lines and helps protect skin against pollution, which can lead to premature signs of skin aging. How does it work? Rye seed extract works with a novel palmitoyl tripeptide-42 and rambutan extract to deliver retinol-like results, visibly smoothing, firming, and toning skin. Resurrection plant-inspired polysaccharide helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier for a smooth, even appearance. It’s available online and from your local salon for €89.

Skinceuticals has just launched Silymarin CF, a powerful vitamin C triple antioxidant serum formulated specifically for oily and blemish-prone skin. Skinceuticals’ research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, perform synergistically to provide results superior to each single antioxidant formulation. The result of six years of research and development, the lightweight formula helps reduce oil oxidation, control excess sebum, and improve the appearance of blemishes and signs of ageing.

It provides environmental protection for oily, blemish-prone skin and fights against visible skin ageing.
