[comfort zone] introduces the revamped Skin Regimen
[comfort zone] has relaunched its cutting-edge Skin Regimen range with a new focus: to meet the needs of modern multi-taskers and millennials. Clinically proven to reduce the effects of stress and lifestyle ageing on the skin and mind it works at the cellular level to improve the mind-skin stress-response. It addresses the common stress-related signs of urban life to improve dehydration, dullness, imperfections, fine lines and wrinkles.
Formulated with highly concentrated botanicals, the products are enriched with the exclusive Longevity Complex, made from organic superfood extracts like anti-inflammatory wild indigo, modulating excess cortisol and boosting beta-endorphins. It also includes maqui berry, with powerful antioxidants anthocyanins and spinach for its anti-glycation effect.

Dermalogica’s UltraCalming line
Created to care for sensitive skin, Dermalogica has launched two new products in its UltraCalming line. Transforming into a hydrating liquid upon application, UltraCalming Calm Water Gel forms a weightless barrier to protect against environmental triggers and sensitivity.

Voya Man is a three-step collection of targeted products that acts against wrinkles, enlarged pores, inflammation and dehydrated skin. Promoting healthy skin, the anti-ageing and hydrating properties of wild Irish seaweed combined with active sea heather soothes the skin, and acts as a protecting layer against the environment and razor burn.

Heady scents for the senses from Natural Spa Factory
Natural Spa Factory has added two new di users to its range following the popularity of the Oud Diffuser, which launched in 2016. The Segura blends Seville orange with Moroccan spiced amber to create a warm, calm and inviting aura for the home or spa. The Chavant delivers a fresh and joyful scent that combines fresh pomelo from the French Riviera and the citrusy floral notes of Calabrian bergamot, resulting in an uplifting aroma to ignite the senses.
The luxury diffuser sets are hand-poured by artisans and presented in glass apothecary bottles along with a 250ml refill bottle and diffuser reeds.
Fabulous face oils from Aromatherapy Associates
Following the success of its Miniature Bath & Shower Oil collection, Aromatherapy Associates has launched the Face Oil Collection. The six miniature bottles are designed for specific skin conditions and concerns, recognising that skin is constantly changing due to a range of factors including the weather, stress levels and hormones.
Aromatherapy Associates believes it is important to adapt the skincare regime accordingly and has developed this collection as a ‘first aid kit’ for the skin to boost and enhance at-home skincare regimes. The different oils nourish and treat skin tackling dryness, lines, radiance, redness and general imbalance, ensuring healthy hydrated, glowing skin for all.
Murad aims for pore perfection
Adding to its Pore Rescue collection, Murad has introduced Pore Extractor Pomegranate Mask, an intensive clay mask designed to re ne clogged pores. Promising to renew skin texture after one application, the range is ideal for oily or combination skin, and is formulated with volcanic clay that helps extract impurities and excess oil deep within pores.
Powerful, antioxidant-rich pomegranate extract promotes glowing skin for visibly redefined pores and cleaner, smoother skin, while polylactic acid biodegradable polishing beads lift and exfoliate dead cells, leaving skin visibly smoother and brighter while minimising pore appearance.
