Clean Beauty Gift Guide: The Trendsetter

She knows what’s a-buzz in the world of skincare – so don’t go gifting last year’s Christmas beauty gifts. Leaving no stone unturned, our Trendsetter is relentless in her pursuit of the new and now. Here’s a selection of carefully curated skincare gifts to capture her attention.

Trend: Vitamin C

Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream 60ml

Diem Vitamin C Pigment-Correcting Water Cream is a lightly textured, high-performance day cream that targets pigmentation, fades dark spots, corrects uneven skin tone, and brightens the complexion. As well as Vitamin C from Kakadu plum, Diem features the melanin inhibitor Melanostatine™5, a natural-origin peptide that helps to reduce and prevent pigmentation such as age spots.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially pigmented and uneven skin.

Glow Vitamin C Daily Serum with Plant Hyaluronic Acid 30ml

Vitamin C is a superstar in skincare, helping to plump, protect, and brighten skin. Glow Vitamin C Daily Serum draws on Nature’s richest source of Vitamin C, the Kakadu plum, with up to 100 times the Vitamin C in oranges – an all-natural source of Vitamin C that won’t irritate skin. The result: the ultimate brightening serum, powered by antioxidants for skin.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially dull and lackluster skin.

Trend: Hyaluronic Acid

Baptise H2O Ultra-Hydrating Water Gel 60ml

Hyaluronic acid skincare gets a well-deserved spot in the beauty hall of fame thanks to its ability to intensively hydrate skin. As a humectant, it binds to water in order to hydrate cells and reduce dehydration in skin. This weightless water gel combines hyaluronic acid with fellow humectant manuka honey, immersing skin in all-day moisture.

The perfect gift for: Most skin types, especially dehydrated.

Trend: Probiotics

Credo Probiotic Ferment Revitalise Serum 30ml

The skin is the body’s largest organ, hosting about 1,000 species of live bacteria that help to protect against toxins and pollutants. Disruption of these bacteria levels can cause a raft of skin issues including redness and irritation – which is where good bacteria comes in. Credo is a daytime serum that helps maintain healthy skin function by cultivating the growth of good bacteria, which strengthens the skin barrier – a weakened barrier can result in blemishes, hormonal breakouts, and premature ageing. Credo features Kalibiome AGE, good bacteria to help increase skin elasticity and firmness, reduce roughness and redness, and calm the skin.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially skin that is stressed.

Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream 60ml

 Probiotics | Trendsetter Gift Guide | Antipodes US

Culture is a cloud-soft probiotic face cream that contains Kalibiome AGE, innovative good bacteria that helps to balance the skin’s bad bacteria. Plant-based hyaluronic acid and water-rich New Zealand extracts deliver a lifeline to stressed skin by boosting moisture levels, strengthening the skin barrier, and optimising skin recovery overnight. All delivered in a vegan water cream that calms, clears, and hydrates.

The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially skin that is stressed.

Trend: 23k Gold

Trend: Manuka Honey

Aura Manuka Honey Mask 75ml

Manuka honey is the second ingredient on the label of this luxurious formulation, described by Vogue as a “cult product” – and for good reason. Manuka honey is one of the world’s most famous sources of healing properties, used for centuries in medicine. Found only in New Zealand, this ingredient’s natural antibacterial properties help address skin blemishes for a brighter, clearer complexion.

The perfect gift for: Most skin types, especially those with dull or dehydrated skin.

Trend: Red Lippy
