Including Moon Juice’s new antioxidant fix and an acne pledge from Dermalogica.
Brad Pitt is making the foray into skincare
Every celebrity under the sun seems to have a skincare line these days. There’s Florence by Mills (Millie Bobby Brown), JLo Beauty (Jennifer Lopez), and Keys Soulcare (Alicia Keys), and that’s hardly the surface of this crowded category. When Brad Pitt announced the launch of his genderless skincare line, Le Domaine, we rolled our eyes together. Because do we really need more celebrity-backed beauty? And what exactly does Brad Pitt even know about skin care? But when you learn that the new venture was inspired by the skincare benefits of grape skins (Pitt has his own wine company), it seems like a more organic transition for the actor. And when you factor in his friendship with former flame Gwyneth Paltrow, who found massive success with Goop, it all makes a little more sense. But will it be a hit in a saturated market? Only time can tell.
Moon Juice unveils its final launch of the summer, G Pack
Looking for a new antioxidant fix? Look no further because Moon Juice uses Vitamin C to increase elasticity and ultimately protect your skin. In a never-before-seen formula, G Pack is the first skin care product to combine 10 percent glutathione, 50 percent vitamin C, and three percent ferulic acid, combined into a product that promotes natural collagen, minimizes the appearance of skin wrinkles, wrinkles and melasma, and protects the skin from environmental toxins. Of course, it’s a stable blend that also protects the bottled antioxidants. Mix with Moon Juice’s coveted Plump Jelly for extra shine and moisture.
Dermalogica adopts the Cancel Acne Censorship Pledge
Acne should not be a source of shame. That’s why Dermalogica announced for Acne Awareness Month that it is adopting the Cancel Acne Censorship Pledge. The goal? To combat the unrealistic beauty standards that bombard us daily and to promote better body image and mental health for young people. Not only is Dermalogica updating its image guidelines, but the brand is also collecting signatures from people who want to see more unretouched skin in ad campaigns and marketing. For every signature, $1 will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Sign the promise now.
