Catch up on the beauty news you may have missed, including the first-ever Glow Recipe body product and Detox Market’s new cleansers.
Glow Recipe launched its first-ever body product
If you’re a fan of cult favourite skincare brand Glow Recipe‘s previous watermelon-scented products (a sleeping mask, toner and, of course, the moisturizer that started it all) then you’re in luck. This week, the brand launched Watermelon Glow Pink Dream Body Cream, a creamy body lotion formulated with watermelon seed butter, hibiscus (a natural alpha hydroxy acid for smoothing and gently sloughing away dead skin cells) and hyaluronic acid. The fast-absorbing lotion leaves behind no traces of grease — just the beloved watermelon scent. The lotion was inspired by the Korean tradition of rubbing chilled watermelon rind onto skin to soothe irritation and even help cool down heat rash in the summer. This launch marks Glow Recipe’s first foray into the world of body care and is sure to become a spring and summertime staple.
Dior premiered Nose, a documentary film about perfumery
If your usual binge-watching TV sessions have been leaving you feeling a bit underwhelmed lately, may we suggest tuning into something a bit — actually a lot — more chic? This week, Dior premiered its documentary film, Nose on Apple TV and iTunes and if you’ve ever been curious about the magical world of perfumery, we suggest you give the film a watch. Nose is directed by Clément Beauvais and Arthur de Kersauson, and follows Dior perfumer-creator François Demachy for two years and through more than 14 countries in his search for inspiration and the most precious raw materials to formulate the brand’s iconic fragrances. “The film is truly peppered with everyday heroes and heroines. Nose is attached to the earth and to all the wonders that it still holds for us,” explained the directors. “We wanted to take the idea of sovereign nature even further, exploring unexpected aesthetic and emotional terrain, to try and uncover the mystery of a perfume.”
Detox Mode launched not one but three new cleansers
The Detox Market’s in-house product line Detox Mode has entered the skincare category for the first time after successfully delving into the hand cream, deodorant and body wash categories since the line’s inception in 2018. This week, Detox Mode launched not one, not two, but three new cleansers (talk about making a grand entrance!): Nourishing Jelly Cleanser, Renewing Foam Cleanser and Adoring Cream Cleanser. The botanically crafted products have been developed with the understanding that skin is constantly evolving and skincare products should serve and benefit skin in its current state — whatever that may be. Each cleanser caters to a different skin need: dullness, sensitivity and dehydration.
Briogeo added a new charcoal scalp mask to its haircare lineup
Beloved haircare brand Briogeo has released Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask, a new clinically proven scalp mask that nourishes and soothes an itchy, irritated and/or flaky scalp with a blast of instant cooling and hydration. Formulated with 98% naturally derived ingredients, the workhorse scalp mask draws out impurities and product buildup thanks to the charcoal, and then immediately replenishes hydration with a blend of aloe vera and hyaluronic acid to increase scalp’s moisture. A refreshing combination of tea tree, peppermint and spearmint oils soothes the scalp with an immediate cooling effect, which will make this mask a total lifesaver in the summer.
