#WednesdayWisdom - New Season Skincare

New Season. New Skincare.

As the weather begins to cool we're searching out brocade, biker boots and dark floral prints to see us into the new season. But it's not just clothes that get refreshed for A/W17 - out go the lightweight lotions and cooling mists to make way for richer balms and oils to keep skin hydrated and glowing into the next season. 

If you're looking to switch up your skincare wardrobe, BRANDstand Comms has a wealth of new finds to get you ready for the autumnal shift.


Smart Science

skinSense's new and revolutionary patented lamellar technology forms an invisible 'suit of armour' around active ingredients, to support their penetration and action in the skin. This micro-encapsulation helps actives to remain within the layers of the epidermis for up to 10 hours. skinSense is the latest launch from UltraSun's skincare expert Abi Cleeve. Abi advises if you try one product from the new range it's the Overnight Leave On Mask for noticeable skin hydration in just one sleep. 

Unique Formulations



Mai Couture Skincare Papers punch above the weight of straight up blotting papers as they contain additional skincare ingredients to boost the benefits. 

With Rosehip Oil, vitamins C & E and Bamboo Charcoal to choose from, each paper sheet is impregnated with specific treatment ingredients to infuse skin while absorbing excess oil for a balanced and soft complexion.


Pick & Mix

It's no secret that Korea is famed for it's incredible R&D (generally 7 years ahead of their European counterparts in terms of formulation development). The country's first ever cosmeceutical brand, It's Skin,has finally landed on our shores with the hero range of six Power 10 Formulas.
Each vial of these super serums come bottled with the highest quality, skin-loving ingredients that work to treat all skincare woes - from dehydration, oiliness and dullness to firmness. Use solo, on problem areas or mixed with each other or your regular skincare products. No wonder they're an ASOS best-seller!


Ingenious Ingredients



For skin as smooth as a pearl,  Stellar Décolletage's Luminous Perfector Treatment Polish, contains Lime Pearl™,a natural source of AHA, extracted from the precious native Australian caviar lime. This zesty inclusion refines skin through a gentle enzymatic action for smoother, brighter and more even toned skin. 



If you're yearning for a little skin refreshment, Watermelon in Su-Man Hsu's rich fruit cocktail packs a skincare punch when it comes to winter skincare. Inspired by her cultural roots in rural Taiwan, watermelon has been a staple in celebrity facialist's Su-Man's skincare routine for years: "I would rub the rinds on my face as a child to exfoliate and tone my skin. My new Refining Facial Polishwas created from this memory."
