Peak sunning season is here, and for the first time, La Roche-Posay combines an advanced UVA/UVB 100% mineral sun filter with innovative universal tint technology to provide critical protection for skin while covering imperfections and providing a healthy glow. Known for its advanced research in UVA rays and the introduction of the first-ever “shaka shaka” ultra-light high SPF fluid to the U.S., La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios 50 Tinted Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid “shaka shaka” sunscreen ($32.95) is 100% mineral non-chemical and offers UV protection down to the cellular level 2.

Dolce & Gabbana Reveals Lace Collection



 
Delicate black lace always adds a sensual and feminine touch—and now, it’s dressing cosmetics packaging. The limited edition Lace Collection from Dolce & Gabbana was inspired by the designers’ use of Sicilian lace in their runway collections. The classic gold Dolce & Gabbana packaging has been transformed into a glossy black lace and is complemented by bronzed skin tones and nude shades for lips and nails. The brand’s makeup creative advisor, Pat McGrath, interpreted the designers’ inspiration into the makeup collection that is intensely sensual and feminine—staying true to the brand’s iconic characteristics. The collection features the new Intenseyes mascara (with a delicate shiny black lace pattern on a matte background), as well as three lipglosses, three nail lacquers and a lace-patterned bronzer (from $22 each). Sheer delight.

Dermelect Polish Attacks Aging Nails



 
It was just a matter of time before two of the hottest categories in beauty met up. Now anti-aging meets nail treatments in the ME product line from Dermelect Cosmeceuticals. With the tagline “The Cure in Your Mani,” the peptide-infused color treatments, formulated and designed for fragile, aging nails, contain a 2-in-1 range of six bright shades ($14 each), combined with a manicure-extending formula. Infused with ProSina, a pure protein peptide extracted from New Zealand sheep’s wool, the lacquers deliver a fast-drying, high-gloss shine while providing an “unequaled level of strength.” The first coat instantly bonds to the nail, while the second fuses with the base coat to resist chipping and improve brittleness (patent-pending technology). The heavyweight glass bottles with aluminum tops complement the luxe formula. For more on ME’s unique retail packaging, go to www.beautypackaging.com.

BrilliantFx Body Serum Soothes and Smooths



 
Facial serums have been all the rage; now a new body serum promises equally efficacious results. According to Diane Zokle, founder of Trinity of Youth Skincare,  “It’s not always about discovering new manufactured ingredients or science-heavy technology. Time-tested ingredients tend to exceed expectations.” She explains, “For instance, it is said that Queen Cleopatra of Egypt bathed in spoiled milk, naturally derived lactic acid, to preserve her beauty.”  Now, BrilliantFx ($39.99), billed as an anti-aging luxurious body serum (but also ideal for eczema or cracked skin), combines lactic acid, arnica montana and Vitamin E for super soft, healthy and hydrated skin.
