Discover our Editor’s picks of the beauty products that are blending the power of nature and science for the most innovative, effective formulas yet. Whether you’re trying to treat a specific skincare concern, or simply want to improve the general look of your complexion, skincare is having a definitive moment. With the rise in popular skincare gurus and a growing appetite for self-diagnosing skin issues, customers are carefully researching the latest formulas and seeking out key ingredients that mean they are more informed than ever before. So brands need to meet these expectations with the latest in skin research and next-gen technology to harness powerful ingredients for science-led skincare solutions. The beauty labs behind big brands Estée Lauder, Clinique and Lancôme have all released updates to their complexion line, including Lauder's addition to their beloved Advanced Night Repair range; the Eye Concentrate Matrix. Its nourishing formula contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate, refresh and fortify the skin around the eyes for a ‘wide open’ look. If you suffer with a dull complexion, Clinique’s Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup is a moisturising sheer-to-medium foundation that’s packed with luminising pigments and Vitamin C to even skin tone and boost your natural radiance. While Lancôme’s Advanced Genifique Sensitive is a highly-concentrated blend of probiotic ingredients to soothe and strengthen inflamed skin over a one-month treatment period.

See our Editor’s top innovative beauty products blending nature and science to produce the most effective formulas yet - from brands including The Ordinary and Kiehl’s.
The Ordinary continues to be a favourite at Fenwick with their range of science-led targeted treatments delivered at great price points. We’re big fans of the pure Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution – exfoliating alpha hydroxyl acid is combined with Tasmanian Pepperberry, ginseng root and aloe vera to gently remove dead skin and improve radiance and clarity. Plus, their bestselling Vitamin C Suspension now comes in a light silicone base option that feels smooth on the skin without any gritty residue. Their sister brand NIOD specialises in improving the health and integrity of the skin. Their Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex offers a multi-dimensional approach to hydration with an impressive 15 forms of hyaluronic compounds to deeply hydrate and plump parched skin, whilst their Flavanone Mud is a next-gen treatment masque that not only decongests impurities using pore-minimising clays, it reduces the look of inflammation and protects the skin from future aggressors without disrupting the skin’s natural PH balance. If you suffer with oily, blemish-prone skin, Kiehl’s Clarity-Activating Toner blends anti-bacterial Salicylic Acid and Activated C to suppress bacteria, refine skin texture and help prevent future outbreaks. To target a spot in full-force, their Blemish Spot Treatment visibly reduces the appearance of break-outs with a powerful formula that can still be used on sensitive acne-prone skin.
