Top 12 Must-Have Beauty Products
1. Diego dalla Palma Anti-Ox Ampoule – Intensive Anti-Oxidant Concentrate
Diego dalla Palma Anti-Ox Ampoule – Intensive Anti-Oxidant Concentrate
This ampoule is rich in antioxidants, as well as dragon’s blood. This is a secretion obtained from the fruit of a tree called Daemonorops draco. The combination aims not only to combat inflammation triggered by the environment but also to stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The product is beautifully packaged in glass – a luxury look and feel – but, importantly, it feels substantial and absorbs nicely, leaving the skin soft.
2. Nuxe Bio-Organic Range
With its new range, this well known and well-loved French brand has gone fully organic. Nuxe Bio-Organic has a strong focus on naturally sourced ingredients that can help to protect the health of the skin. What’s more, the packaging is completely biodegradable.
The Rice Oil Extract Ultimate Recovery Oil is light, combining rice oil and organic botanical oils, such as avocado and jojoba, to strengthen the skin’s barrier as you sleep.
Additionally, the Anti-Puffiness, Anti-Dark Circles product uses the power of Breton buckwheat and vitamin E. This works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles.
The new range can be found here.
3. Neutrogena Cellular Boost Range
Free radicals trigger cellular burnout. This can then lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
NUXE BIO Rice Oil Extract Ultimate Recovery Oil
The new range from Neutrogena, which contains anti-aging ingredients such as retinol, hyaluronic acid, and hexinol, helps not only to prevent further cellular damage but also to cool down signs of aging, leaving your skin looking as young as you feel.
The product is easily absorbed, leaving the skin feeling soft and fresh.
4. Esse Resurrect Serum
Similar to your gut, there is a microbiome in your skin. It’s important to maintain the health of this microbiome if you want your skin to be healthy. The new serum from South African brand ESSE helps to support a balanced skin microbiome, and in doing so, to moisturize the skin, all while firming the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Elemis Peptide4 Overnight Radiance Peel
5. Elemis Peptide4 Overnight Radiance Peel
This overnight peel will ensure that you wake up with a smoother and younger-looking complexion. The new product contains lactic acid, which gently exfoliates the skin. It also contains hibiscus acids, flower milk, and peptide 4. These three ingredients work to support the skin’s natural cell renewal, leaving you with stronger and smoother skin.
6. Environ Rad Shield Mineral Sunscreen
No beauty arsenal is complete without sunscreen, and this new product from Environ contains zinc and titanium, to block the damaging and aging effects of UVA and UVB rays, while the antioxidants offer anti-aging protection by fighting off aging environmental factors.
Plastic surgeon Des Fernandes and his team produce Enivron products in Cape Town. This is especially important as they understand the challenges of a harsher climate on the skin.
7. Revlon PhotoReady Prime Plus Mattifying & Pore Reducing
This new primer from Revlon will prep your skin for make-up and do so much more. The primer contains ingredients that include salicylic acid and artichoke extract.
As a result, the primer also offers benefits to your skin over time. These include helping to reduce the appearance of pores, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
8. Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Aqua-Gel
If there’s one thing your skin needs to stay healthy and age gracefully, it’s moisture. New Hydrance Aqua-Gel contains a high concentration of Avène Thermal Spring Water, for lasting hydration of the skin. The gel also helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier, preventing any moisture loss. In doing so, it promotes a radiant and supple appearance.
Bioderma Sébium Gel
9. Bioderma Sébium Gel
Sebum helps to prevent moisture loss and protect the skin from infection. Unfortunately, external factors can disrupt the balance of sebum. This then leads to an oily complexion, as well as breakouts, acne, and blemishes.
The new gel from the Bioderma Sébium range gently cleanses the skin. It also helps to balance the production of sebum, and reduces the appearance of acne and shine.
10. Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow
With masks now part of our everyday lives, why not give your eye make-up skills a boost?
The new eyeshadows from Dr. Hauschka free of synthetic fragrances and preservatives. Moreover, the ingredients, such as black tea, help to moisturize and soothe the delicate skin around the eyes. A win for the holiday season!

11. Trichotin DHT Inhibitor With Saw Palmetto
Hair loss is something that a lot of people both fear and suffer from. That said, the new product from Fushion Labs is exactly what you need to keep your hair happy.
Saw Palmetto and Beta-Sitosterol are the two key ingredients. They work together to inhibit 5AR, an enzyme that can trigger hair loss. This then leaves you with a healthier and thicker mane.
12. SOLAL Even Tone Serum
Hyperpigmentation, as well as dullness, is something that we all struggle with as we get older. That said, this new lightweight serum from SOLAL may be exactly what you need to combat the effects of aging skin.
The benefit of the serum comes from the powerhouse skincare ingredient- niacinamide. Niacinamide helps to improve skin tone. Additionally, it also works to plump up the skin as well as hydrate it.
