It’s been a busy first half of the year for us at Effortless Skin so, in case you’ve missed anything, here are the latest brands and products that have launched on our site over the past few months and why we think you’ll love them.
Malvina Skincare – link
With over 30 years’ experience under her belt and a celebrity client list as long as her arm, who better to develop their own skin care range than facialist Malvina Fraser? Her collection of cleansers, moisturisers, serums, exfoliators and face masks are each infused with Peptides and Plant Stem Cell Technology to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with every application. If you have mature skin and are looking to address the signs of ageing before they take hold of your complexion, this is the range for you.
Must-Try Product: The multi-use Advanced Eye Cream works well as an everyday skin-smoother but it can also be used as an intensive treatment mask a couple of times a week – which is our personal favourite way to use it.
TimeBlock – link
Achieving peak physical health and wellbeing with advancing age is no mean feat, but TimeBlock think they have cracked the secret to feeling and staying younger for longer with their new supplement. Split into two different formulas that work with and complement the changing needs of the skin and body throughout the day, the TimeBlock Day & Night Nutrient Complex aims to keep everything ticking over just like it should, tackling everything from slow metabolism and heightened stress levels to weak bones and sluggish collagen production. A two-month course isn’t cheap, but the results you see will certainly justify the splurge.
Wrinkles Schminkles – link
Anti-aging skin care is big business but it can also be incredibly time-consuming applying and organising your own routine. Australian brand Wrinkles Schminkles claim that they saw a problem with people’s current routine and fixed it by simplifying things with their range of silicone-based patches that fill in depressions in the skin while you sleep. Simply place a patch onto the area of the face or body that you wish to correct, go to sleep and when you wake, the skin will look noticeably smoother and plumper. Each of these patches can also be reused multiple times, making them amazing value for money.
Must-Try Product: Each product essentially does the same thing but for stubborn laughter lines, the Eye Smoothing Kit is a must-try for any skin type.
Dr. Bragi – link
Created by enzymology specialist Dr Jón Bragi Bjarnason, this range of suits-all anti-aging products is really something special. He discovered that Marine Enzymes found in the depths of the oceans surrounding Iceland could survive in temperatures as low as -2°C and, when subjected to human body temperature, became ‘super- active’ and more powerful than any other enzyme out there. He then added these enzymes to a collection of moisturisers and masks, to create a potent range of skin rejuvenators that work their magic on dull, congested, dry, inflamed and irritated skins, and the Dr. Bragi brand was born.
Must-Try Product: For new users wanting to experience the transformative benefits of Marine Enzymes fast, we highly recommend the Intensive Treatment Mask.
Aestheticare – link
If you are a fan of PRESCRIBEDsolutions products and have struggled to get your hands on some of your favourites recently, there is a very good reason why. The range is currently going through a rebrand and is losing some of its old formulas but, fear not, because the excluded products have been taken over by cosmeceutical specialists Aestheticare who are committed to keeping them accessible for as long as possible. Aestheticare are the manufacturer and distributor of some of the industry’s best-loved brands – including Heliocare and Endocare – so your much-loved products are in safe hands.
Must-Try Product: Currently, the only product available is the Gentle Daily Cleanser which replaces the PRESCRIBEDsolutions Don’t Be So Sensitive cleanser.
