From iconic blushes and miracle butters to eco cleansing pads and plumping night creams: our roundup of the best new beauty.

Follow from left to right, (starting with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Blush).

Cheeky colour

Laura Mercier, creator of the iconic Tinted Moisturiser, brings the same skincaremeets-makeup magic to
a new effortless blush formula: Tinted Moisturiser Blush ($45). In 14 adaptable shades, its ultra-moisturising botanicals (such as skin-conditioning raspberry seeds and hydrating prickly pear) impart 12 hours of weightless tinted hydration along with just a hint of natural, long-lasting cheek colour for the perfect no-makeup makeup look.

Butter up

With winter really making itself felt this month, Drunk Elephant’s Wonderwild Miracle Butter ($57 at
Mecca) is every bit the skin miracle it purports to be. Packed with intensive skin-loving goodies, this
super pure, concentrated butter can be dabbed anywhere on the face or body that needs a little extra love, including the eye area and lips, as often as needed.

Let it glow

Thirteen years after launching the highly coveted GLOW powder, The Beauty Chef founder and CEO
Carla Oates and her team have reimagined the cult product into a topical skin-nourishing, intensive
face oil, GLOW F.A.C.E. ($79). Holding true to The Beauty Chef’s expertise in fermentation and focus
on the health of the microbiome, this luxe oil features a unique fermented prebiotic and postbiotic
extract as well as vitamins A, C and E and promises to be the ultimate skin multitasker.

Plump it

Plump up your skin as you plump your pillows with Glow Lab’s newly released Pro-Collagen Plumping Night Cream ($23). Enriched with powerhouse peptides, amino acids and betaine, this light yet rich, luxurious formula moisturises and firms skin while you sleep.

Out dark spot

Dark spot pigmentation in the underarm area is reported to affect one in three women: cue cult bodycare brand Kaia’s innovative response, The Takesumi Bright – the world’s first brightening duo designed to calm, brighten and even skin tone for areas prone to dark spot pigmentation. Start with the gentle brightening body bar and finish with the 2-in-1 multi-use deodorant + body balm. Takesumi Bright
Starter Kit, $32.

A truly good clean

Cut down your cotton pad habit without compromising your skin via new Swissper Reusable Eco Cleansing Pads (4-pack, $13). Made using 100 per cent natural fibres from bamboo and cotton with
outer packaging made from sustainably-grown wood (FSC certified), simply moisten with makeup remover lotion and swipe over face, eyes and lips to cleanse skin. After use, hand-wash the pad with
soap and hot water or place in the supplied mesh bag and machine-wash on a warm, gentle cycle.
