Catrice Just Launched A Series Of Skincare Products – And We're Hyped!
We got all of the details from dermatologist and brand ambassador Dr. Mack
Catrice manages to surprise us with great products again and again. The German brand behind popular makeup products like the Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer and True Skin Foundation has just introduced several skincare beauty boosters in cooperation with board-certified Dermatologist Dr. Lian Mack. The range includes the Glow Beautifying Face Oil, Glow Booster Serum, Sensitive Moisturizing Serum Milk, Hydro Plumping Serum, Pore Minimizing Serum and the Pore 2-in-1 Peeling and Toner.
We asked Dr. Mack, who has been working in dermatology for 14 years and is truly passionate about her profession, a couple of questions about the products, her skincare routine, and do's and don'ts when it comes to taking good care of your skin:
What inspired you to collaborate with Catrice?
“I was very attracted to the brand’s ethos and the idea of having active ingredients in affordable skincare products. There are a lot of allergies out there and the brand really holds itself to high standards so I am very proud to be affiliated with it. You will see that once you start going through the beauty boosters that they’re really beautifully formulated products and I think that the ingredients that are being used are very thoughtful.”
What is special about this new range of products?
“Each of Catrice’s beauty boosters target different elements of the skin, making it simple for consumers to individualize their skin care routine. Whether you suffer from dehydrated skin, enlarged pores, or dull and tired looking skin - there is a solution for you. The difference between these boosters and other products currently available on the market is that all of the boosters are paraben free, alcohol free, cruelty free and vegan - a very hard combination to find in skincare products. Moreover their products contain truly active ingredients at an affordable price.“
What's your top recommendation for everyday skincare?
“I swear by retinoids and recommend if they are not a part of your skincare routine to add them in asap (unfortunately pregnant and breastfeeding mothers need to hold off!) They reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen and improve overall skin texture and tone. Retinoids are the holy grail of skin care, helping us to age gracefully. Besides this, my other tips are to protect during the day with antioxidants and repair at night with exfoliants like retinoids, alpha and beta hydroxy acids. Without prioritizing the health of your skin, makeup will not be effective in enhancing your look.”
What are your personal skincare secrets?
“I swear by Catrice’s Pore Minimizing Serum as a base before applying my sunscreen and finally makeup. In addition, I make sure to invest in quality makeup brushes that can be washed frequently to apply my products.
I am most commonly asked about my natural glow, and I credit Catrice’s Glow Booster Serum. Enriched with Vitamin C, E and B3 this booster gives off a beautiful glow. The antioxidants, moreover, protect the skin from the free radicals in the environment ultimately enhancing its appearance. I reach for this product daily.”
What skincare mistakes can be easily avoided?
“Keep your skincare bottle as sterile as possible! We all have bacteria on the skin and we just don’t want to contaminate the serum bottle (i.e. placing the dropper directly on the skin) So I would make sure that when you’re applying it you literally drop it either on your face or on your hands and then apply it. You really want to let the product dry. Personally, I am always rushing with two children but I try to wait two to three minutes before layering products. But honestly, just do your best.”
