Nannic UV- Shield £37.99
It is important to reapply your sunscreen throughout the day, but how do you prevent your carefully applied make-up being ruined and wiped off at the first re-application of sunscreen?
Solution: You go for an instant spray on sunshield which can be used over make-up.
Launched this year, Nannic spray on UV-Shield not only protects the skin from UBV and UVA, but has the added bonus of helping improve skin firmness, moisturising the skin, helping protect against hyper-pigmentation and reducing skin scaling. It is oil free and does not stain clothes.

KORRES Castanea Arcadia
For the first time the potent anti-wrinkle power of pure Lupeol (chestnut tree derived) is incorporated in a cosmetic formula to deliver optimum preventive and corrective anti-wrinkle action.
WHY LUPEOL ?
KORRES Lab focused on Lupeol, the most potent active against wrinkles, found in the Castanea leaves – a compound with scientifically proven strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action. A significant active for the medical and pharmaceutical world that has never been used as a cosmetic ingredient before, as it cannot be diluted or absorbed by the skin.
KORRES Lab developed the innovative molecule Active HALupeol. An active hyaluronic acid matrix transfers pure Lupeol to the deeper layers of the skin, for targeted, effective action.
An innovative, potent anti-wrinkle molecule, fighting wrinkles in all dimensions – depth, width and surface.
Further studies proved that Active HALupeol demonstrates both preventive and corrective anti-wrinkle action, through its activation on three levels – cellural, genes and extracellular matrix.
The range includes:
Anti wrinkle/firming & brightening face serum – all skin types; 94.9% natural content, £39.
Anti wrinkle & firming day cream for dry/very dry skin; 93.3% natural content, £39.
Anti wrinkle & firming day cream for normal/combination skin; 95.3% natural content, £39.
Anti wrinkle & firming eye cream – all skin types; 96% natural content, £36.
Anti wrinkle & firming night cream – all skin types; 96.1% natural content, £39.
