It’s been a few months since the quarantine and the beauty world is catching up with its launching game. Making up for the lost time during the stay-home period, brands have been releasing new products on a monthly basis and it’s making the life of beauty editors a little more difficult trying to get all these products tested. Yet, we’ve been working hard and these are what we deem the best of the latest beauty items we’ve tried in the past months.
The one serum to rule them all, La Mer’s hero product the Concentrate is given a new twist for its latest relaunch. Promising to transform your complexion in 2 weeks, the formulation isn’t only packed with Miracle Broth, which is slow-crafted using the cold-vacuum process for three days and three nights to receive its super-concentrated form. The power of Miracle Broth combined with the new anti-oxidant, Lime Tree Concentrate, works to protect skin from environment and stress and create the ideal environment to visibly soothe inflammation while strengthening even the most delicate, sensitive skin.
