Ocean beauty

Kiehl's has launched a new series based on abyssine, a substance harvested from the deep recesses of the Pacific Ocean. Its Abyssine line includes a sunscreen ($405) which moisturises as it protects. It is light enough for everyday use and can be worn under make-up. Also featured in the series is a cream for the face and neck and an eye cream ($290).

Skin softeners

Lush has introduced two new skin-softening body lotions. Our favourite is Karma Kream which is a light, gently fragranced cream that is easily absorbed. Ginger Lotion has a spicy floral ginger fragrance and contains rose and geranium essential oils. Both are reasonably priced at $199 for a big tub.
