The best new beauty prod­ucts to mas­ter the fresh glow­ing look of sum­mer


Fresh’s cult-clas­sic Um­brian Clay Pu­ri­fy­ing Mask just got an art­ful facelift. Mul­ti­task­ing as a deep cleanser, face mask and blem­ish min­i­mizer, the detox­i­fy­ing treat­ment’s hefty glass jar has been dec­o­rated with a lim­ited-edi­tion la­bel to cel­e­brate the rich Ital­ian his­tory of its hero in­gre­di­ent, Um­brian clay. The min­eral-rich white earth is found solely in the pic­turesque town of No­cera Um­bra, Italy, and is one of the ear­li­est known cos­metic in­gre­di­ents dat­ing back to Etr­uscan times. To cre­ate the vis­ual homage to the clay’s origins, Fresh part­nered with Ital­ian ce­ram­ics work­shop Rometti. Jean-Christophe Clair, the fac­tory’s artis­tic di­rec­tor, dreamt up the de­sign fea­tur­ing an Etr­uscan fe­male fig­ure set against an earth-toned geo­met­ric pat­tern. “Rometti is one of the old­est pot­tery com­pa­nies in Italy, so it was the most in­cred­i­ble col­lab­o­ra­tion that brings the story of the Um­brian clay back to the fore­front,” says Fresh co-founder Lev Glaz­man. The lim­ited-edi­tion Um­brian Clay Pu­ri­fy­ing Mask is avail­able at Sephora.


Kenzo’s cre­ative di­rec­tors, Carol Lim and Hum­berto Leon, have bot­tled their quirky sar­to­rial vi­sion of the lux­ury fash­ion house into their first fra­grance, Kenzo World. A two-year project for the Los An­ge­les na­tives who took over the la­bel back in 2011, Lim and Leon called on mas­ter per­fumer Fran­cis Kurkd­jian to craft the dy­namic flo­ral spritz that mixes play­ful top notes of red berries with a bou­quet of pe­ony and Egyp­tian jas­mine, and a sen­sual am­broxan dry­down. Pay­ing trib­ute to Kenzo’s fa­mous evil-eye mo­tif that the duo cre­ated back in 2013, the en­er­getic aroma is pack­aged in an eye­shaped fla­con with a float­ing gold pupil that’s wor­thy of sur­re­al­is­tic sculp­ture. Kenzo World Eau de Par­fum is avail­able at Sephora and Hud­son’s Bay.
