Derma Lab SOS Recovery Serum
If there’s anything we’ve learned from using acids and retinols in our skincare is that you repairing your skin barrier is a must. Derma Lab’s SOS Recovery Serum does wonders in that aspect, in that it effectively helps to restore moisture and strengthen the skin. The formula appears thick and gum-like at first, but thins out almost immediately before sinking into the skin. The formula is packed with skin conditioners like panthenol (vitamin B5), glycerin and EGCG to boost moisture and repair the skin, thus preventing itchiness and sensitivity as a result. We also like that it has sclerotium gum to ensure that the skin’s microbiome is well balanced as this helps in maintaining the skin’s resilience. Those with conditions like psoriasis and eczema might find this formula beneficial.

YSL Beauty Libre Eau de parfum
Libre Eau de Parfum, a favourite from YSL Beauty, is a true olfactory expression of freedom and boldness. The fragrance bursts with notes of Diva Lavender Heart and Moroccan orange blossom, making an impact at first spritz.

Think: an alluring sophisticated scent that makes its mark without being overpowering. Aside from how lasting this fragrance is, we also love how the bottle sits beautifully both in our palms and on our vanity. It features the brand’s iconic Cassandre monogram, a golden chain design detail and a geometric black lacquer cap to top it all off in good style.

Drunk Elephant Wonderwild Miracle Butter
We love a good multi-use product, and this salve is just the thing to soothe and rescue dry, chapped or irritated skin. From healing sunburned skin to smoothing out rough elbows, cracked heels or chapped lips, this do-all balm has got you covered.
One of its main modes of action is its ability to form a protective shield against the environment thanks to restorative lipid-rich plant butters such as marula, cupuaçu, mango, and shea. This protective effect is further boosted by star ingredients like antioxidant-rich oils of pumpkin seed, green tea seed and jojoba, that are known to fend off the damaging effects of free radicals. Kukui, marula, meadowfoam and rosehip oils help to strengthen and restore the compromised skin barrier with their nourishing properties. Use this as a spot treatment on areas that need extra TLC or slug your skin with it overnight for added comfort and moisture.
