These are the new beauty launches we can’t get enough of.
Canadian Clean Beauty Brand Three Ships Has a New Cleanser That Fights Breakouts
Ask, and Three Ships will deliver. When it comes to deciding on a new product launch, Connie Lo and Laura Burget, the Toronto-based minds behind vegan and natural skincare line Three Ships, don’t go based off of current ingredient or product trends. Instead, they take a digital-first approach by reaching out to their over 30, 000 Instagram followers. “We’ll go on Instagram stories and ask our audience, ‘Hey, what natural products do you guys want that you don’t currently see in our product lineup or from other brands? We then filter through hundreds of responses and look for the most-requested products. Those become the next ones that we create,” reveals Lo.
The brand’s latest outreach has led to the creation of its Refresh Papaya + Salicylic Acid Cleanser ($28), a foaming face wash for combination to oily skin that contains papaya enzyme and aspen bark extract as its star ingredients. “Papaya enzyme is high in vitamins A and C, meaning it’s really great for skin cell turnover, brightening and evening the skin tone. Aspen bark is not only a natural preservative, but it contains high levels of salicylic acid to combat acne,” explains Lo.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Launched its Spring 2021 Collection, Which May Just Be its Sleekest, Chicest Launch Ever
Ready to embrace your inner Elsa (of Frozen fame, of course)? The Anastasia Beverly Hills Spring 2021 collection has everything you need to do just that. Launched this past week, the gorgeous four-piece collection features a highlighter, a clear brow wax and two lip glosses — Honey Diamond and Crystal. All the products come in one universal shade that’s perfect for achieving a wet, glass-like finish. You’ll especially love the lip glosses if you’ve been mesmerized by the next-level glossy look that’s been trending on TikTok lately. The best part: all of the spring launches can be worn on their own or paired with other products (like lipstick, blush, etc.) to create extra dimension and luminosity to your finished look.
Vichy Launched its H.A. Wrinkle Filler Serum
In need of some extra hydration lately? Look no further than Vichy’s latest launch, Liftactiv Supreme H.A. Wrinkle Filler Serum. It’s formulated with 1.5% hyaluronic acid, peptides, vitamin C and of course, Vichy volcanic water (which is sourced in the Auvergne region of France and remains totally pure and untouched, and is at the heart of every Vichy formula, including its cult favourite Mineral 89 Serum). H.A Wrinkle Filler claims to reduce wrinkles by 47% and fine lines by 60% after just 6 weeks of use and is completely hypoallergenic, so even the most sensitive skin types can tolerate it. And with packaging that’s inspired by pharmaceutical protocols and standards of safety, you can apply directly onto your skin without risk of bacteria contamination.
YSL Beauty Updated its Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation Formula
The milky foundation equivalent to YSL Beauty’s cult-favourite Touche Éclat highlighter, this lightweight skin-illuminating complexion perfector ($74), which comes in 30 shades, now boasts the power of marigold and mallow botanical extracts from the French brand’s Ourika Gardens in Morocco, along with Vitamin E, for a skincare-meets-makeup multitasker that delivers all-day coverage.
L’Occitane Added a Fruity Twist to its Shea Butter Body Collection
Dry, itchy skin settling in for the long haul this winter? Provence-born skincare and body brand L’Occitane’s signature shea butter range is ideal for those in need of some serious hydration, and this cold-weather season its ultra-nourishing body collection has received an invigorating scent update featuring citrus to boost your mood during these dreary months. And you can rest assured that the limited-edition assortment includes all the L’Occitane favourites, like the Dry Skin Hand Cream ($12), Ultra-Light Body Cream ($50) and Shower Body Cream ($24).
Pixi Beauty Dropped a Rose-Infused Spring Collection
Thanks to its formulas made with hardworking, active ingredients, Pixi Beauty has become a budget-friendly staple that gives even some of the fanciest makeup and skincare out there a run for their money. This week, the UK-based drugstore brand launched its new 8-piece +Rose Colourtreat spring collection that’s packed with rose-derived ingredients, like rose flower oil and rose water, to sooth and hydrate the skin. The new makeup and skincare offerings (think: a face oil that can be layered both under and over makeup, a shine-enhancing tinted lip balm, jelly face masks and more) also harness the power of other heavy-hitting hero ingredients such as jojoba oil, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
