With science at the heart of much of what they do, Snowberry is proud to unveil its new enhanced formulation of New Radiance Face Serum with Kanuka Honey extract. Backed by five years of pharmaceutical research and an independent gold standard clinical trial, this serum is proven to reduce wrinkle volume by an average of 25.6%. The secret lies in Cu-PEP, or copper peptide, a skin remodelling peptide which helps to heal wounds, stimulate the production of structural proteins, combat inflammation and kick-start the skin’s natural antioxidant system. Rather than the serum sit on top of the skin when applied topically, Snowberry has developed a new technology that ensures the proper delivery of the peptide deep into the skin’s dermis.

These unique makeup removal towels are crafted from the finest threads of polyester – with each thread being one hundred times thinner than a strand of human hair. When woven together, they create a surface area larger than that of traditional fibres, meaning they can attach themselves to even the smallest specks of dirt or oil, gently removing them from the skin’s surface. This product-free makeup removal method works its magic on both longwearing and waterproof makeup, without the need for harsh chemicals. Each Take It Off cloth is only $19.99, machine washable and available in black or limited-edition blush pink. .
