From scientific skincare to the beauty world’s best do-it-yourself solutions, here are the products MOJEH is loving.

“Quarantine skin” is a real phenomenon referring to flare-ups and dull complexions induced by factors associated with lockdown; stress, Vitamin D deficiency and lack of sleep being some of the biggest contributors. Rejuvenate tired eyes and bring back your youthful glow with MOJEH’s edit of skincare that’ll have you feeling, and looking, your best in no time.

Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules, ELIZABETH ARDEN


Elizabeth Arden has added hyaluronic acid to its cult range of encapsulated actives, which are designed to deliver skincare’s most-loved ingredients more efficiently. In this form, extra moisture is drawn into your skin before ceramides seal it in there, for a plumper and more hydrated complexion.

The Super Smart Hydrator, U BEAUTY


The second product to launch as part of the U Beauty lineup is a new hydrator designed specifically to strengthen a compromised skin barrier. It uses five sizes of hyaluronic acid molecule to hydrate throughout the layers of your skin, leading to a plumper surface as well as a better-moisturised dermis.

Pro Pore Refiner, SARAH CHAPMAN


A cutting-edge three-step extraction device, this harnesses ultrasonic technology to excavate all of the dirt that gets stuck in your pores to leave skin looking porcelain-smooth. It combines thermo-therapy and ionic cleansing to soften the skin while ultrasonic vibrations loosen congestion.

Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Cream, LA PRAIRIE


If you’re after an eye cream that gifts you an additional three hours of sleep without the need to actually close your eyes, this is it. Formulated to lift and firm delicate skin above and below the eye, it uses prime caviar extracts and the brand’s signature cellular complex to really tighten.

Le Gommage Anti-Pollution Exfoliating Gel, CHANEL


Joining the best-selling skincare line, this gel-cream removes impurities from the pores and eliminates dead cells. To enhance the skin’s radiance it contains active ingredients known for their oxygenating and remineralising properties, which promote optimal cell functioning.

Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution, SUMMER FRIDAYS


Formulated with a hefty dose of AHAs, including lactic and glycolic acids, use this every night without causing dehydration or leaving that uncomfortable tightness you get with some exfoliators. It achieves this by balancing out the exfoliating acids with aloe and hyaluronic acid for an overall glow.

Hyaluronic Serum, DR. BARBARA STURM


This serum takes wonder ingredient hyaluronic acid to the next level. Backed by Dr. Barbara Sturm’s molecular approach to skincare, the formula contains both low- and high-weight hyaluronic molecules, which provide instant hydration to both surface and deeper skin layers.

Multi-Sculpt High Performance Gua Sha Tool, FACE GYM
