When the International Spa Association held its annual convention in Las Vegas earlier this month, we couldn’t resist going to see what new beauty products were on the market. Here are our picks for the top seven beauty discoveries we made at ISPA 2016.
NUFACE HAUTE CONTOUR KIT
This is your one-stop shop for facial toning at home in the hautest way possible. The kit comes with a NuFACE Trinity device, a game-changing facial trainer attachment that uses microcurrent technology, is FDA-cleared, and is clinically tested for improved facial contour, skintone and wrinkle reduction; the NuFACE Trinity ELE (Effective Lip and Eye) attachment fits perfectly on your NuFACE Trinity device, which specifically targets the lip and eye areas; a gel primer; a 24K Gold Gel Primer, the brand’s first leave-on formula that features antiaging and firming ingredients to help visibly tighten and tone for younger-looking skin; and the new Lifter Serum to finish your treatment and give your skin an even more lifted appearance.
THE JANE IREDALE FASHION FORWARD COLLECTION
We’re digging all the new releases from mineral queen Jane Iredale, including the versatile cream-to-powder primer and eyeshadow Smooth Affair for Eyes (our favorites are the perfect pearl color, Canvas, and a shimmering gold), three shades of retractable brow pencils, travel-sized BeautyPrep and Hydration sprays and the absolutely most perfect shade of red, the Cindy PureMoist Lipstick. Your lips will look completely kissable thanks to ultra-moisturizing avocado and sunflower seed oils; moringa oil, which nourishes lips with vitamins A & C; and coffee seed extract for antioxidant protection.
BODY BLUR SHAKA SHAKA ULTRA-SMOOTHING CONTOURING LOTION
Get rid of blobby bits and tackle cellulite with Phytomer’s all-new Shaka Shaka contouring product, Body Blur, a three-phase water-oil-powder lotion you shake before applying to instantly smooth cellulite and tackle visible fat. This product (which, FYI, should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women or those sensitive to iodine) corrects visible cellulite and refines the waist and thighs.
BABOR AMPOULE CONCENTRATES FP ACTIVE NIGHT FLUID
This active concentrate is delivered in an ampoule form to boost cell metabolism during the deep-sleep phase. Thanks to the active ingredients in the ampoule, which include black algae, black willow (salix nigra) extract and black truffle, your cells will renew much faster to combat the signs of aging. You’ll wake up with a fresher, more vibrant and plumped up appearance the next morning.
ELEMIS SUPERFOOD FACIAL OIL
Think of the Superfood Facial Oil from British skincare brand Elemis as a big gulp of water for your thirsty skin. A blend of highly concentrated superfoods penetrate your skin to deeply nourish and hydrate, while anti-oxidant and omega-rich broccoli, flax seed and daikon radish help to plump and smooth for a healthy, radiant glow.
SANITAS VITARICH SERUM
We love the new VitaRich serum from Sanitas Skincare’s new Progenerate Collection. This serum helps to accelerate skin renewal and prevent premature signs of aging with a multivitamin complex that protects the skin against free-radical damage and other environmental stresses. It also firms and smooths skin with a powerful blend of essential fatty acids that deliver prolonged hydration.
FOREO LUNA MINI 2
We love traveling with this pocket-sized facial cleansing tool, which, through T-Sonic pulsations, delivers the unique ability to remove 99.5% of dirt and oil, as well as makeup residue and dead skin cells, and exfoliate without irritating the skin.
