From REN’s new potent hydrating booster and an overnight resurfacing exfoliator from Kiehl's, to Estée Lauder’s latest anti-ageing line, these eight genius products use the latest in skincare technology to work their magic on your complexion.

If you can’t make it down to any of our skincare specialist events over our Meet Our Experts activity in store, we’ve gathered the most cutting-edge treatments for you to try for yourself at home.

After years of research into the natural activity of Nrf2, a protein naturally found in skin that supports multiple anti-ageing pathways, Estée Lauder’s latest skincare line harnesses moringa extract with prickly pear cactus to calm irritation, promote natural collagen production and strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.

Harnessing the latest in hydra technology, this deeply hydrating blend of hyaluronic acid and peptides boost water levels and water circulation in skin cells to plump from within. To maintain skin’s moisture levels throughout the day, fatty acids and xylitol promote water capture from the environment and create a barrier against water loss.
