Screen dreams

You don’t have to be glued to the gog­gle­box to take ad­van­tage of the Shop­ping Net­work’s brands and pro­mo­tions. We’re en­joy­ing the colours and tex­tures of Laura Geller’s baked foun­da­tions, blush and high­lighters, avail­able from


Der­ma­log­ica’s orig­i­nal pow­dered rice Mi­cro­fo­liant was a game changer for gen­tle face ex­fo­li­a­tion and now the com­pany has gone a step fur­ther, de­vel­op­ing a bright­en­ing “Su­per­fo­liant” that’s part of a new wave of anti-pol­lu­tion skincare. Pow­dered like its pre­de­ces­sor, the new ver­sion tar­gets ur­ban de­bris on the sur­face of skin – known to cause dull­ness, pig­men­ta­tion and ac­cel­er­ate age­ing – by call­ing on ac­ti­vated char­coal, rice bran, anti-in­flam­ma­tory Niaci­namide, lac­tic acid and botan­i­cal ex­tracts. Af­ter cleans­ing, pour into wet hands and ac­ti­vate by mas­sag­ing over skin for a minute or two be­fore rins­ing. Der­ma­log­ica Su­per­fo­liant, $109.

Great start

Crisp au­tumn air com­bined with in­door heat­ing can take its toll on your skin. Mois­ture Mist’s Face Re­vi­taliser, $41, deals to dry­ness and strength­ens the skin’s pro­tec­tive bar­rier, leav­ing it soft and sup­ple. Use in the morn­ing be­fore make-up to en­sure a seam­less ap­pli­ca­tion and pre­vent base from set­tling in fine lines. It will also help con­trol that dreaded 3pm shine that can be the re­sult of ex­cess oil pro­duc­tion.

Sheer joy for those who de­mand com­fort­able colour for lips, Burt’s Bees’ new Tinted Lip Oil pens, $20 each, call on co­conut and mead­ow­foam seed oils to give a nour­ish­ing tinted shine that you won’t have to mi­cro-man­age.
