Hot off this week’s news: AXIOLOGY are launching two new shades of their beloved lipstick (£24). Joy is a deep pinky plum that complements any sultry evening look, whilst Bonafide is a bright coral copper which sets off a tan perfectly. Both are made with pure ingredients such as organic avocado butter and organic moringa oil, and neither contain more than ten ingredients, all designed to nourish and care whilst imparting gorgeous colour. The ingredients themselves support organisations such as PETA and The Orangutan Foundation, and the packaging supports a women’s foundation in Bali which recycles rubbish on their beaches. Both are available from Glow Organic.
Intelligent organic skincare line S5’s products are designed to combat five specific skin concerns caused by modern living: redness/sensitivity, blemishes, pigmentation, premature ageing, and dryness. The highly effective range includes two cleansers – the Neutralise Cleanser (£24), which is designed for oily/sensitive skin and gently cleanses without stripping the skin; and the Nourish Cleanser (£32) for dry/sensitive skin, which is a rich oil-based balm that soothes and nourishes skin whilst cleansing. Then there are the five serums: Illuminate Serum (£52) to reduce the appearance of pigmentation; Calm Serum (£52) which reduces the appearance of irritation whilst soothing and protecting skin against stress; Replenish Serum (£52), an antioxidant-rich oil formulated to nourish dry, flaky skin; Purity Serum (£48) to target blemishes and open pores; and finally Renew Serum (£64), which reduces the appearance of fine lines, supports collagen production, and boosts skin’s luminosity. The Balance Fluid (£46) is designed to balance oily or reactive skin, reduces the appearance of pores whilst hydrating skin and plumping wrinkles, and helps to reduce stress-related ageing. A targeted solution for eyes, the Renew Eye Cream (£42) is a 3-in-1 solution designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and dark circles, and reduce puffiness. Finally, there’s a choice of two moisturisers – Restore Cream (£46), which nourishes and protects very dry skin whilst reducing stress-related ageing; or Serenity Cream (£46), which calms and hydrates sensitive skin – and both options defend against environmental pollution. The range is truly customisable, and allows you to protect skin against modern day life without compromising your skincare. It will be available from www.s5skincare.com.
