BSKIN – V Line range (Soft Bead Cleanser $53, Natural Balanced Essence $60, Intense PAF Concentrate $126, Active Day Cream $96, Regenerative Night Cream $109) I tried the BSKIN V Line range and was pleasantly surprised by a couple of the products. The cleanser was good, very creamy and my skin felt moisturised afterwards and not dry – and that’s good when you have skin that’s getting on in life! The Intense PAF Concentrate is the brand’s vitamin C serum and I thought it was excellent. It’s quite strong smelling, and the marketing blurb says that it’s a power-packed elixir. It seems like it – the antioxidant component helps with dull, sagging skin, and I think there was an overall improvement in the texture and evenness of my skin tone after one bottle. It’s won quite a few awards, too, so is worth a try, even if it’s not cheap at $126. The toner and normal moisturisers in the range were average. Rebecca Bisset

Codex – Antü Brightening Serum, $102

This product comes in a handy little tube and, despite the size, I’ve been using it for nearly two months now. A pump or two is sufficient to spread and gently massage the gel-like texture into the face once a day. The light, naturally derived citrusy scent doesn’t stay long, which fits those who prefer unscented skincare products. The serum settles into the skin quickly, leaving it firm and smooth for hours. I’d recommend this product to those who are more prone to skin pigmentation or spend lots of time under the sun for its brightening properties, applying it before sunscreen or moisturiser. This Codex serum with healing properties is suitable for all skin types. The brand uses natural, organic ingredients and is eco-friendly, committed to a zero carbon footprint by 2025. Oh, and did I mention one of the key ingredients is hibiscus, which acts as a natural Botox? Judit Lim
