On My Desk: What’s New in Beauty in Autumn 2017 from Inika organic cosmetics, Skin by Ecostore, Ultraceuticals, Kevin Murphy, Elizabeth Arden, Antipodes,
INIKA Organic claims to be the purest makeup brand on the planet, with certified organic BB Cream, pressed eye shadow, lip glaze, and more cosmetics. An interesting fact: their baked mineral products are baked in Tuscany Italy on terracotta tiles. The range is cruelty-free, vegan, certified organic, 100% natural, and non toxic. Available at @smithandcaugheys, at health stores, salons, and online at www.inikaorganic.com
Iconic Kiwi brand Ecostore has branched out (excuse my botanical pun) into quality natural skincare with this large range of facial and body skincare products. Called Skin by Ecostore, there’s a Gentle Cleanser, Purifying Cleanser, Rejuvenating Body Moisturiser, Light Moisturiser, Nourishing Hand Cream, Replenishing Night Cream, Hydrating Moisturiser, Nourishing Manuka Lip Balm, and Multi-Nutrient Facial Oil. All products are boxed in packages that evoke the ocean and sky with the byline; Where the land meets the sea.
Protect your delicate eye area with this incredible eye cream. This limited edition pack is out now from Ultraceuticals with Ultra C Firming Eye Serum and Ultra Soothing Eye Makeup Remover.
I picked up another Ultraceuticals Ultra A Serum at Equipoise spa this week and went up a level in strength as my skin becomes accustomed to it. I’m having some peeling today from Wednesday’s Vitamin A facial. Hello, new skin!
