BEST BEAUTY BREAKTHROUGH. Avène Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate for Chronic Redness ($46, 1.01 fl. oz.)—exclusive to physicians—is an advanced spot treatment formulated with medical-grade, saponin-enriched Ruscus Extract that targets redness by acting directly on blood vessels. Clinically proven to provide anti-inflammatory benefits and help improve microcirculation, it reduces the appearance of small blood vessels and decreases facial flushes. Avène Thermal Spring Water enhances the hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic formula with soothing, skin-softening benefits. Also fragrance- and paraben-free.
BEST OF BEAUTY: SENSITIVE SKIN. Avène Skin Recovery Cream ($32.00 / 1.69 oz.) is a lightweight, 100% sterile moisturizer that helps to prevent and calm irritation with Parcerine®, an advanced, patent-pending ingredient that goes right to the source of skin intolerance, deactivating the skin’s inflammatory response. The groundbreaking, patented D.E.F.I. (Device for Exclusive Formula Integrity) air-tight safety cap keeps the fragrance-free, paraben-free formula 100% sterile from first pump to last drop. Avène Thermal Spring Water enhances the hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic formula with soothing, skin-softening benefits. Formulated with only 12 ingredients to reduce the risk of potential irritation, ensuring gentleness for sensitive skin.
BEST OF BEAUTY: SENSITIVE SKIN. KLORANE Soothing make-up remover lotion with cornflower water ($23, 13.4 oz.). This soothing, 3-in-1 make-up remover, cleanser and toner features refreshing cornflower water to easily remove impurities and make-up in a single stroke without irritating even the most sensitive skin and eyes. When it comes to sensitive skin, less is more. So KLORANE features just six ingredients to ensure a gentle touch for all skin types. And now KLORANE introduces this pure, no-rinse make-up remover in a convenient pump bottle—which dispenses a perfectly pre-measured application of product every time. Hypoallergenic, fragrance- and paraben-free.
All winning products are now eligible for the coveted Allure Best of Beauty seal, the beauty equivalent of the Gold Oscar, recognized by industry insiders and consumers alike as a sign of the product’s excellence. Read all about our winners in the October 2012 issue of Allure and on allure.com.
