Molton Brown Peps Up Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Collection

Molton Brown’s additions to its Pink Pepper Collection—including a body scrub, a fragrant eau fraîche and a spicy scented candle—bring a spa-like experience into your home. An invigorating new body exfoliator ($48) contains bamboo stem particles to exfoliate and warming African ginger perfume oil to soothe; the light eau fraîche ($45) stimulates the senses; and the candle ($49) adds a touch of piquancy to any room. Inspired by the Gulf of Guinea, the Pink Pepper Collection blends ingredients from the ancient spice route, creating a peppery fragrance rich in protective antioxidants. With top notes of pink pepperpod extract and tangy tangerine, to warming ginger and rich patchouli oils, this collection is a bathroom must-have—both as a beauty aid—and a decorative color punch.

Dr. Perricone Issues Blue Plasma ‘Skin Peel’

Plagued by enlarged pores, discoloration, loss of brightness, or a tired-looking complexion? A skin peel to relieve dead cells can be a certain pick-me-up, both physically and emotionally. Sure to do the trick is Dr. Perricone’s Blue Plasma ($95; 59 ml/2 fl oz), a non-acidic daily peel that claims to deliver all of the benefits of a traditional peel, without causing surface redness, irritation or damage to skin. The “cutting edge” formula features ingredients including salmon egg enzyme, a bio-specific peeling agent that tackles only dead skin cells, and copper, which not only helps repair and promote skin health—but also contributes to the beautiful, natural turquoise color. According to the brand, consumer use studies revealed unprecedented results: Immediately post application, 97% agreed their skin looked and felt “baby soft,” while 90% agreed their skin was visibly more luminous and felt hydrated. Thus, a dropper full of this resurfacing cosmeceutical can instantly chase skin blues away.

Turo Skin Targets ‘Real Men’

Board-certified plastic surgeon and CEO of Turo Skin, Dr. John Renucci, says that men care about improving their skin, but most don’t incorporate skin care products into their daily routine; if they do, they often borrow from skin care collections formulated for women, who he says have significantly different skin and scalp characteristics.

Turo Skin aims to answer this challenge by offering no-fuss, efficient personal-care products, delivered in a simple, time-saving way. Each product is formulated with nourishing blends of plant extracts and a fresh citrus scent; they are also hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested.

The collection, which ranges from $10-$50, includes 3-in-1 Shower Cleanser; Multi-Active Shave; Daily Moisturizing Lotion + Sunscreen; Regenerating Night Cream; Anti-Acne Spot Treatment; and Protective Lip Balm Treatment SPF 15. A Starter Kit with the first three products listed above is available for $80.
