12 beauty launches we’re loving this April 2024

With a tangible chill to the air, consumers are turning their heads to beauty products, which better serve their skin and hair’s changing needs. With an overarching emphasis on skin repair—from skin barrier to hair—we round-up all the trending skincare and haircare launches to know, perfectly timed for the shift in season.

Dermalogica Melanopro Peel System

With reduced sun exposure, skin is typically less tanned and sun-sensitive, making it the ideal time to invest in pigmentation treatments. Dermalogica’s newest professional innovation, the Melanopro Peel System, is a comprehensive skincare programme that works to visibly reduce hyperpigmentation and help prevent the appearance of future hyperpigmentation in under six weeks. For $999, the clinically proven system includes two-phases; a professional treatment administered in clinic and a home care programme. It is ideal for those looking to lessen and prevent the appearance of sunspots, skin discolouration from acne scars, melasma, dull skin, or rough texture. It has been tested on a wide range of skin tones.

Davines WE STAND/For Regeneration

The perfect holiday beauty companion for those chasing the sun this winter, Davines new hair and body wash bar is not only ideal for travel but kinder to the planet. The earth-first design is 99.7 percent biodegradable and packaged in 100 percent recyclable paper. The hero ingredient is white yarrow extract, sourced from the brand’s regenerative organic farm in Parma, Italy.

COOLA Clear Skin Oil-Free Moisturizer SPF 30

As any good skin therapist worth their salt will tell their clients, sunscreen is still essential in cooler weather! One of the common deterrents for routine sunscreen application is its propensity to clog pores and cause breakouts. Specially formulated for acne-prone skin, this silky sheer oil-free moisturise features non-nano zinc oxide for broad spectrum SPF 30 protection, while niacinamide and calming centella asiatica work to help soothe and prevent congestion. Bonus, it also features COOLA’s proprietary BlueScreen Digital De-Stress Technology to mitigate the effects of blue light and other environmental stressors.

Aspect DR Complete Pigment PLUS Age Support

Another timely release with pigmentation in the spotlight, this gentle yet potent serum is formulated with antioxidants and phytoestrogens to visibly minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin discolouration, and age spots. With added barrier-fortifying ingredients ideal for hormonally imbalanced or sensitised skin, this serum promotes a bright and youthful complexion.

K18 AirWash

An aerosol-free dry shampoo with a difference. The key ingredient in AirWash is K18’s newly patented odorBIND molecule, which works to seek out and eliminate odours with time release technology that lasts for up to three days. This means that even if you choose to go a few days between washes, your hair will still smell fresh and clean. Additionally, the formula is powdery white cast-free, thanks to translucent oil-absorbing microbeads, ensuring that your hair looks clean and voluminous.

Kerastase Première

Born from the discovery that the calcium in water amplifies the effects of damage on hair, Première is a new dual action repair haircare range. The six-piece collection works to, first decalcifiy the hair and then repair it, by helping reconnect the keratin bonds. The hero is Concentré Décalcifiant Ultra-Réparateur, a pre-shampoo treatment fortified with a professional-grade concentration of pure acids to decalcify and dramatically repair persistent damage. It penetrates deep into the hair to deliver more long term results than ever before.

Dyson Nural

Dyson’s latest styling tool comes equipped with a new Scalp Protect Mode, which uses a network of Nural sensors, automatically reducing heat and airflow as it nears your head, helping protect your scalp from damage. These sensors also improve the styling experience, enhance hair shine, and prevent heat damage. New and improved attachments which cater to all hair types are equipped with attachment recognition, learning a user’s styling preferences, and simplifying their routine for fast healthy drying with no extreme heat.

COSMEDIX® Prep & Reset

A convenient yet efficacious addition to your client’s homecare routine, these dual-sided lactic acid exfoliating facial pads help to achieve a smoother and brighter complexion. Carica papaya fruit extract and resurfacing acids—lactic, gluconic, and kojic—exfoliate and moisturise while niacinamide replenishes the skin’s moisture barrier.

Murad Cellular Hydration Barrier Repair Trio

Three new hydration focused products have joined the Murad line-up! Two years in the making, Cellular Hydration Barrier Repair Serum, is a concentrated serum with a three-part system to repair damaged skin at a cellular level in as little as 30 minutes. Fortifying cells with three essential elements—hydration, fatty acids and peptides—it claims to visibly smooth texture in one use and reduce redness in inflamed skin in one week. Rounding out the trio is the Cellular Hydration Barrier Repair Cream and Cellular Hydration Barrier Repair Mask, which also adhere to the same principles, delivering intense soothing and hydration benefits.

ghd Colour Crush Collection

The brightest and boldest limited-edition collection yet from ghd, Colour Crush, features four vibrant new colourways—radiant red, elemental blue, apricot crush and cyber lime—across five of ghd’s iconic tools. Prices range from NZD$380 to $655, which includes a complimentary heat-resistant case with each tool. For the first time, the duet style 2-in-1 hot air styler is available in colour. Also included, is the new ghd chronos, the brand’s most advanced hair styler to date, as well as the ghd helios hairdryer, gold styler, and max styler.

Jeuneora Greens+

With increased awareness around the link between gut and skin health, consumers are adopting a more holistic approach to their beauty regime. It’s now commonplace to see ingestibles and supplements alongside skincare in clinics. The latest addition to award-winning wellness brand Jeuneora’s line-up is Greens+ – a daily super powder packed with 45 gut-loving fruits and vegetables. Rich in phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, fermented probiotics, and digestive enzymes, it’s an easy all-in-one daily addition for supporting gut health and general wellbeing.

The Beauty Chef Plumpers

Along the same vein, The Beauty Chef have released their first chewables. Aptly called Plumpers, the on-the-go chewables are formulated with hydrolised collagen peptides to support collagen production, elasticity, and hydration. Meanwhile, a potent postbiotic with hyaluronic acid supports skin hydration and immune system health. Plumpers are available in three flavours; Chocolate, Orange & Turmeric, and Kakadu Plum & Berry.
