Skin needs water to keep hydrated and healthy, but the silly season elevates this desire to new heights. The request for this year’s Christmas beauty gifts? Dewy, fresh skin, all day, every day – plumped and primed, not parched. Not too much to ask, is it? Fortunately, we have a cool glass of water on standby, in the form of our hydration heroes.
Renew the dew with this luscious face mask that leaves skin soothed and targets dehydration in skin. Manuka honey is a natural humectant, drawing moisture to the skin, while Pohutukawa is a bioactive extract that conditions and deeply moisturises. The result: a dewy, refreshed complexion.
The perfect gift for: Most skin types, especially when skin is dull or dehydrated.
A daily spritz of this soothing toner delivers a burst of hydration whenever skin calls. The water-based formula helps balance moisture levels in the epidermis as soothing extracts of aloe vera and anti-inflammatory marsh mallow calm irritated skin.
The perfect gift for: All skin types, even those with sensitive skin – as this formula is dermatologically approved.
Water-based serums like Hosanna penetrate the skin easily, granting skin an immediate water boost and helping to smooth, soften, and plump the skin contour over time. Vinanza® Grape antioxidant extracts help prevent and address free radical damage, as bioactive mamaku black fern addresses cell turnover for healthy, fresh skin.
The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially dehydrated skin.
Hyaluronic acid skin care is the gold standard in hydration, and it makes an appearance in this Vitamin C-enriched serum that helps cultivate a luminous, dewy appearance, with or without makeup. Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water to hydrate cells from the inside out. The light-wear gel serum gets even more moisture-boosting abilities from brightening antioxidant compound Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi, clinically shown to reduce moisture loss (New Zealand Extracts, 2012).
The perfect gift for: All skin types, especially dull and lacklustre skin.
A weightless, intensive formula that immerses thirsty skin in natural moisture.

South Pacific hibiscus flower gently exfoliates deadened skin cells to freshen the complexion. Clinically shown to increase skin hydration by up to 52% (Dermatest Australia, 2019).
The perfect gift for: Oily, combination, and normal skin, or dehydrated skin.
