L’Oréal Paris Hair Ex­per­tise Ex­tra­or­di­nary Clay Pre-Sham­poo Treat­ment ($8.49) is like a face mask for your scalp, com­pris­ing three dif­fer­ent clays to ab­sorb ex-ex cess se­bum, cleanse and prep hair for hy­dra­tion. Fol­low up with sil­i­cone-free Ex­tra­or­di­nary Clay Sham­poo ($6) and Con­di­tioner ($6) for glo­ri­ous shine that doesn’t feel waxy and hair that looks just washed for up to 72 hours. Bye, greasy roots!


The new bareMin­er­als BarePro Per­for­mance Wear Pow­der Foun­da­tion ($36) comes in 30 shades, in­clud­ing its deep­est-ever colour of­fer­ings, thanks to new tech­nolo­gies and the re­moval of phys­i­cal sun­screen, which al­lowed for the cre­ation of richer pig­ments. “It was a lim­it­ing fac­tor for us,” says Bill Hughes, the brand’s se­nior di­rec­tor of global mar­ket­ing and prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, of the SPF. “We be­lieve in min­eral sun­screen, but ti­ta­nium diox­ide and zinc ox­ide have a very ashy cast.” Added in its wake: vi­ta­mins D and E, for hy­dra­tion, and vi­ta­min B6. “Cus­tomers with oily skin tend to be de­fi­cient in B6,” says Hughes. “So, along with the sil­ica and mica, it will help con­trol oil ab­sorp­tion.” These min­er­als and vi­ta­mins are milled to cre­ate su­perfine par­ti­cles, so the pow­der foun­da­tion avoids look­ing, well, pow­dery. Just make sure you ap­ply sun­screen first.
