When Cosmoprof North America, one of the largest beauty trade shows in the world, held its annual convention in Las Vegas last month, we couldn’t resist going to see what innovative new products were hitting the market. Here are our picks for the nine best discoveries we made in Sin City. Your skin, hair and body will thank you.
HAIRMAX LASERBAND 82 This new, enhanced hands-free laser medical device delivers nourishing laser light to energize and revitalize your hair follicles and regrow your hair. The unique new cradle design incorporates 82 medical grade lasers and patented hair parting teeth, which parts your hair during treatment for maximum laser light delivery to your follicles to achieve optimal results.The treatment takes as little as 90 seconds, the fastest laser treatment for hair loss available. It’s also FDA cleared for both men and women, and not only revitalizes damages hair, but even reverses the thinning process. A home run.
JURLIQUE ACTIVATING WATER ESSENCE ‘Water essence’ is, in fact, a plant water-based infusion enriched with highly concentrated, organically grown marshmallow root extract to hydrate and improve skin’s ability to retain moisture. It’s great for dryness, dullness, uneven texture and tone, but beyond that, is really an essential daily step for your skincare regime in order to hydrate, soften and revitalize your skin. It will definitely help your serums and moisturizers to become more effective.
SKINYOGA Who says your body is the only thing that can benefit from yoga? Not the three Choudhary sisters Radhika, Jagriti and Deepika, who formed the natural brand. The plant-based, Indian line is sold as powder. Add water and watch the natural elements transform and twist your skin into something new. Our favorite product is the Sandalwood Saffron Face Mask, which works most effectively on dehydrated skin.
DERMOVIA LACE YOUR FACE HOME TREATMENT MASK For years, Dermovia co-founder Anita Sun worked as a medical esthetician alongside plastic surgeons and dermatologists in the clinical arena. Sun discovered while working to heal and enliven some of the most severe facial skin conditions – including burns and skin cancer – that layering knit cotton gauze with bandage compression was the most effective treatment delivery protocol for wound care of the skin. She also discovered more healing benefits of compression than initially thought; even for those who do not have an extremely complex case or severely compromised skin can benefit from this treatment protocol. As a result, the healthiest skin can be revealed at any age. Sun and business partner Mariella Scott pursued the idea of creating a wearable facial mask from the same kind of materials used in medical-supported skin treatments for home use, which is where the brand’s LaceTex Technology—a proprietary blend of high performance wearable compression fabric embedded with a beneficial treatment solution for the skin—comes in. This treatment mask not only counters and compresses to soften skin, but it remains moist for prolonged treatment and the gauze-like lace provides breathability for pores.
PUR-LISSE SUMMER GLOW TRAVEL ESSENTIALS This line from former Power Rangers villain Jennifer Yen will give your skin goodness while you travel thanks to a TSA-approved pack of the brand’s bestselling skin-savers including its Blue Lotus Cleansing Milk; Blue Lotus Essential Daily Moisturizer; Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer; White Tea Sheet Mask; and Seaweed Sheet Mask.
RODIAL BANANA POWDER This powder from cosmetics giant Rodial is good enough to eat (kind of). OK, well, at least it’s wonderful enough to wear! The versatile yellow shade suits a range of skin tones to compliment the full contour look. This subtle formula corrects surface redness and pink undertones whilst neutralizing blue under eye circles. This mattifying powder can both set your makeup and contour your face by the ‘baking’ make-up trend. It can be applied after foundation to prevent it from setting into fine lines, it also helps to reduce the appearance of an oily complexion. That said, the main function of banana powder is to act like a highlighter, to enhance your facial contours with a mattifying highlighted finish to the face. The lightweight texture stays true all day long without caking or looking heavy, blending beautifully and instantly while minimizing fine lines and imperfections for a shine-free complexion and natural, flawless finish.
LONVITALITIE 24 GOLD & COLLAGEN EYE MASK This gorgeous gold eye mask from Australian brand Lonvitalitie is made of pure natural extract and collagen composition that will give you a more refreshed, more youthful eye area. The nutrient laden ingredients will permeate the skin and help to speed up cellular processes, activating regeneration which aids in restoring lost aging skin’s volume.
