Each issue we test new products to bring you the best. By Melanie Pike.

Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Toner

Ideal for balancing oily to combination skin, this toner helps to minimise your pores without over-drying your face. The lightweight formula will leave you feeling clean and refreshed.

A’kin Natural Deodorant

Just because it’s free from all of the usual nasties found in deodorants, doesn’t mean it’s any less powerful. We tested it this summer and it stood up to the Sydney heat!

$9.99 akin.com.au 

Golden Grind Turmeric Face Scrub

This scrub is packed full of the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory goodness of turmeric, so it’s great for clearing up any breakouts. The pumice stone means it gently exfoliates, while the jojoba oil leaves your skin feeling moisturised. Beware of the turmeric’s stain factor though!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue 

Gliding on effortlessly, this cream showed its nourishing,  brightening effects in just over two weeks. Fine lines were filled to dewy perfection — a great help heading out of party season!
