August beauty news: A comeback of a few classic beauty products, plus some new ones
With each passing year, the beauty industry gets more and more advanced with its creations. But this year we've seen the return of old favorites, along with new innovations.
There's the comeback of a famous scent, a redesign of a century-and-a-half-old product, and a lot more latest releases in makeup and skincare.
Avon Attraction Sensation
One of the first things that attract a humans is the smell. Luckily, there are fragrances meant to "attract."
The crowd-favorite Avon Attraction Sensation line returns in celebration of the company's 44th anniversary in the Philippines.
The Avon Attraction for Her, created by Laurent Le Guernec, envelops you in notes of floral, oriental, and fruity. The mix of Spicy Ginger, Oriental Mandarin, Jasmin, Orris, and Midnight Freesia create a bold intoxicating scent.
Meanwhile the Avon Attraction Sensation for Him is an Oriental Fougeré that seduces from first whiff. Its topped notes of spicy Black Pepper and Ginger Oil, Clary Sage, with the fresh and robust Lavender Oil, Patchouli and Vetiver.
Cetaphil Ultra Protect
Does your skin ever feel dry after washing with soap? That's because some soaps strip of natural oil. While they do their job in cleansing and removing bacteria off the skin, it's not exactly healthy for your skin.
Now, there's Cetaphil Ultra Protect (P390), an antimicrobial cleansing bar that protects and moisturizes skin, thanks to its 3D Derma-Mimic Technology. This soap is designed for all skin types, but is especially good for sensitive skin.
Issy & Co. Creme Cheek Bronzers
The sun may be nowhere to be seen this time of the year, but Issy & Co.'s newest Crème Cheek Bronzer (P349) will definitely give you that natural-looking sun-kissed glow you've been wanting.
This cream blush is easy to blend and build as it has jojoba and meadowfoam seed oils. Just dab or buff on areas where you want to add warmth, and there it is!
The Crème Cheek Bronzer comes in four different shades: Toast (soft clay bronze), Molten (medium umber bronze), Torrid (medium golden bronze) and Blaze (deep sienna bronze).
Shiseido 150th Anniversary Collection
Japanese beauty brand Shiseido just marked its 150th year, and to celebrate the milestone, they have launced three limited-edition products. These products individually symbolize “Heritage,” “Living Innovation,” and “Future,” to signify our past, present, and future.
