Tower 28 introduces a sculpting cream contour
The act of contouring requires a fair amount of trial and error, which is why there’s nothing like the forgiving formula of a cream contour product to get you started. Clean beauty brand Tower 28’s Sculptino™ Soft Matte Cream Contour boasts a fool-proof formulation of soothing ingredients like green tea extract and aloe vera with a balm-like natural finish that allows for easy shaping and sculpting — no excess buffing or blending necessary. The product is available in four different shades and is housed in Tower 28’s sleek signature packaging made from 50 percent post consumer recycled resin.
Thayers expands its iconic toner family
Skincare enthusiasts will know that Thayers has one of the most beloved selections of toners on the market — and this month there’s a new addition to the family. The pH balanced Hydrating Milky Toner is formulated with two star ingredients: snow mushroom and hyaluronic acid. Both function as humectants (substances that retains moisture), and the hyaluronic acid penetrates the epidermis layer for a dewy and plump appearance, while the snow mushroom’s small particles allow it to easily seep into the skin’s surface for peak hydration that lasts 48 hours.

Powered by a sloughing cocktail of alpha-hydroxy acids (think mandelic, lactic and glycolic) as well as antioxidant-rich hibiscus extract and hydrating macadamia and avocado oils, Beautycounter’s no-rinse Overnight Resurfacing Body Peel is your answer to next-level limb smoothness.
