As we head into the month of November and really begin to notice the shift in seasons, it's a good time to think about switching up our skincare routines.
Changes in the weather may have made your skin dry, or you may feel like your trusty old moisturiser just isn't doing the trick anymore.
Well, the good news is that a whole crop of excellent formulas is about to appear at your favourite beauty counter.
BIOSSANCE's 100% Squalane Oil
Rather than have separate moisturisers for the face and body, this addition to the popular BIOSSANCE range does it all. Made with squalane derived from sustainable sugarcane - a vegan, ethical, and more effective version of the ingredient - this multitasker hydrates and locks in essential moisture and also helps other active ingredients work more effectively. In addition, a small amount can be smoothed through wet or dry hair to add shine and tame flyaways, split ends, and frizz. A true multitasker!
BOTANICAL LAB's Witch Hazel + Salicylic Acid Cleansing Pads
Ideal for blemish-prone skin, BOTANICAL LAB's cleansing pads are made with 2% salicylic acid and witch hazel to gently exfoliate and reduce the appearance of blackheads and blemishes, and can also be used to target problem areas on the neck, chest, and back. And unlike conventional cleansing pads, these are plastic-free and composed of 60% Tencel and 40% wood pulp.
ETHOSA's Sablé de Bain Powder-to-Gel Body Wash
Waterless beauty is about to be a huge trend in the skincare industry, with ETHOSA founder Gaëlle Chatelard's products ahead of the game. The plant-based powder is activated upon contact with water, creating a foaming gel that provides an invigorating cleansing experience. It is also available as a Blend Your Own Kit, which includes a reusable aluminium bottle, a skin-specific Shower Powder, and a choice of natural essential oil. For those looking to minimise their bathroom cabinet, waterless beauty products are a great place to start, as they weigh less, create fewer CO2 emissions in transit, and are packaged in a carefully considered sustainable way.
