Nutrimetics Ultra Care+ Platinum Cleanser & Masque
This fabulous multi-tasking product is a cleanser and masque in one. The dual action formula thoroughly removes makeup and impurities without drying your skin when used as a cleanser (so there is no need to even pack a separate makeup remover), and delivers immediate and intense hydration when used as a masque, for a smoother, firmer complexion. With Hexapaptide-10 to help improve elasticity and density, honey & pectin complex for long lasting hydration, and sweet almond oil to cleanse and refresh, this product is suitable for all skin types. 115ml RRP $52.00.
June Jacobs Rapid Repair Healing Cream
The jewel in the June Jacobs crown, the Rapid Repair Healing Cream is a true multi tasker. It temporarily protects and helps relieve chapped or cracked skin, helps protect your skin against the drying effects of cold weather (after all, we’re not all heading to the sun these holidays), helps soothe minor burns such as sunburn, works as a makeup primer, is great as a hydrating mask whilst flying, and is brilliant as a hand cream. Gentle yet effective, this non-greasy formula absorbs quickly to leave skin healthy, nourished and perfectly rejuvenated. Travel sized 47ml RRP $46.00. 112ml RRP $92.00.
Simple Hydrating Booster
Simple hydrating booster packs a mighty punch for such a small product. Simple hydrating booster is great for dry or dehydrated skin, and can be used in 3 different ways – as a hydrating primer layer under your normal moisturiser, as a booster to your normal moisturiser (just add a couple of drops and mix together), or for very dry or dehydrated areas, applied directly. The formula instantly quenches thirsty skin, and reduces dryness and tightness, for comfortable, supple skin. Dermatologically tested, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic, it’s perfect for sensitive skin. 25ml RRP $9.99.
Amongst Bio-Oil’s many uses, it’s great for helping to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. It’s a great product to pack when you go on holidays, as it can also be used as a soothing hydrator for dehydrated (think sunburned or wind burned) skin, and as a body oil to save you packing a body lotion (it gives your skin a lovely sheen if you’re going out at night). Bio-Oil can also be used as a bath oil, and as a hair mask if your hair dries out. 60ml RRP $14.95. 125ml RRP $24.95. 200ml RRP $34.95.
