BARS

Sham­poos – such as Lush Seanik Sham­poo Bar, $14.95 – con­di­tion­ers, body lo­tion, even self­tan­ners, such as Ethique Bomb­shell Self Tan­ning Bar, $45 now come in block form. And be­cause they’re more con­cen­trated (for three bot­tles of, say, body lo­tion you’d usually buy, you would need to buy only one lo­tion bar) you save both water and money. (Some traditional bars do con­tain water, so al­ways check the la­bel.)

POW­DERS

They’re ideal as scrubs (the gran­ules pro­vide a gen­tle ex­fo­li­a­tion), but they’re also great for get­ting your dose of top­i­cal vi­ta­min C (the an­tiox­i­dant desta­bilises in liq­uid, so a pow­der form helps main­tain ef­fi­cacy). Mix it with your favourite serum to in­stantly en­hance the pro­tec­tive pow­ers.we swear by Phi­los­o­phy Turbo Booster C Pow­der, $47
