The Good Acids Pore Toner

Some toners nourish, while others help to smooth and minimise the appearance of pores – how about one that does both? This post-cleanser formula blends AHA and salicylic acid to slough away dead skin cells. Meanwhile, cape lilac, eggplant, turmeric extract and aloe quell irritation.

Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum

Bring some bounce back to your skin with this organic serum, which contains a mixture of fruit stem cells, along with antioxidant-rich jojoba and shea that protects the skin’s surface. One added pro: you can use this gel-like product as a makeup primer thanks to a generous dose of hyaluronic acid, which gives it just the right amount of glide.

Daily Microfoliant

Dull skin is one of the less merry hallmarks of the winter season, so exfoliation is critical around this time of year. With a sugary texture, this rice-based enzyme powder starts off dry, then lathers up when activated with water. Ingredients like green tea and colloidal oatmeal comfort skin, while salicylic acid deep-cleans pores.

Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum

This extra-concentrated eye serum helps to smooth under-eye wrinkles and minimise the appearance of crow’s feet with a dose of retinol, while cotton wool grass extract and marine kelp help to stave off dryness. Since it’s ophthalmologist tested, it’s approved for application around the eyes – you can even dab it directly on your lids, a crucial but often-neglected skincare zone.

Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator

Think of this aloe vera mask as a nourishing snack for your chapped skin. Generously swipe on the bright green gel – infused with botanical extracts of cucumber, papaya, and chamomile – whenever your face feels inflamed (it’s a great remedy after peels, waxing sessions, and extractions). Work it in with a facial roller for an invigorating massage, or pop it in the fridge for a refreshingly cool effect.

Rènergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Face Cream SPF 30

What separates a subpar moisturiser from an exceptional one? This prestige face cream which is the priciest entry on the list, but for good reason: Your skin will drink up the lightweight cream that’s enriched with firming linseed extract and brightening LHA (Lipo Hydroxy Acid), giving this day cream the anti-aging potency of a night cream. The subtle, floral-scented cream has added SPF 30, so you can cross hydration and sun protection off your to-do list in one fell swoop.
