The buzz in the beauty world is all about what’s underneath: we’re talking skin care, people.
Here are Lucire’s hot picks for what should be going on your skin in these colder months.
La Mav’s sweet orange foaming facial cleanser (100 ml, NZ$54·90) is designed to gently remove impurities from oily to combination skin types. All La Mav products are 100 per cent plant-based, from naturally derived ingredients.
Packed with a bundle of natural ingredients, including bilberry and sugar cane extracts that help purify and exfoliate, while helping to refine and unclog your pores. Add in witch hazel, which has anti-inflammatory properties, and you’ve got a cleanser bursting with natural goodness. And we can’t forget the seaweed and green tea extract that help promote that luminous complexion we all strive for.

If you’re suffering from dry, thinning skin, lacklustre tone, deep lines and wrinkles, Murad’s Resurgence Sheer Lustre Day Moisture SPF 15 (NZ$143) may have the answer.
Women’s hormonal fluctuations can contribute to dramatic changes in your skins appearance. Murad Resurgence Sheer Lustre Day Moisture SPF 15 is specifically formulated to fix skin problems associated with hormone changes during pregnancy, menopause and other health issues.
