Best Anti-ageing Range

Dr Belter Cosmetic Bel-Energen range, from $88

The Promise: This “green-tec” brand combines natural and organic ingredients with science for the best anti-ageing results.

The Experience: A brand that gives us the wealth of a doctor’s experience, but doesn’t use parabens, mineral oils and silicone oils. This line mimics the effect of Botox and other powerful anti-ageing treatments with exclusive, patented technologies, but is a pleasure to use while lifting, firming and boosting our skin.

Best Brightening Supplement

IDS Lyco White Oral Skin Supplement, $168 for 90 capsules

The Promise: These capsules contain the goodness of up to 80 tomatoes and prevent melanin formation while offering strong UV protection.

The Experience: It’s easy to stick to three capsules after breakfast and our skin definitely improved after a month of consumption. Skin looked healthier, more even-toned and was at least a shade fairer thanks to the added protection.

The Promise: A quick-drying head-to-toe formula.

The Experience: Perfect for touch-ups and covering larger areas of the body as well as the hair; this feels weightless and non-greasy and can even be sprayed upside down.

Best Brightening Serum

Sloane Inc White Plasma S6.5, $96.3o

The Promise: A powerful yet gentle brightening serum that targets spots and pigmentation.
The Experience: A lightweight serum that glides onto the skin and offers an immediate brightening effect. We like that even pregnant women and those with eczema can use this ultra-safe product, that harsh whitening agents are avoided in the formula and that results are quickly visible.
