From the niche new beauty brands doing something different, to the industry’s evergreen icons, Tish Weinstock opens up AnOther’s dream vanity. Up this week – a face cream by eco-warrior Stella McCartney

  1. Who should use it? Skincare junkies and eco-warriors, this one’s for you
  2. How long until I love it? With a fragrance designed by renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, inspired by Stella’s nostalgic memories and connection to the Scottish landscape, just opening the lid on this indulgent Restore Cream will have you hook line and sinker
  3. How planet-/people-friendly is it? Overfriendly, some might say. Rooted in her love of nature, Stella’s 20-year vegan and cruelty-free ethos lies at the heart of her eponymous skincare line. The packaging is totally recyclable and each product with a refillable insert
  4. How do I use it? Apply daily to dry, cleansed skin and massage into the face, neck and decolletage. You can layer it over Alter-Care Serum or wear it alone

After two years of careful innovation, Stella McCartney has unveiled her eponymous skincare line Stella. In keeping with her ethos about protecting the environment, Stella is a responsible alternative to luxury skincare, a philosophy the designer has neatly dubbed ‘Alter-Care’. In fact, so environmentally conscious is this brand, that it only consists of three essential products, pertaining to Stella’s core mantra of using only what you need. It’s basically all about being mindful. As such, Stella has been formulated with the finest active ingredients nature has to offer, designed not to over-stimulate the skin, but to deliver long-term results.

The star of the line-up is the Restore Cream. Powered by organic rock samphire, lingonberry extract, organic birch sap and wild harvest algae, this luxurious cream works to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, as well support skin elasticity and firmness. Lightweight and restorative, this indulgent powerhouse hydrates and replenishes, while also working to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier and support the body’s regeneration system. The result? Flawless-looking skin. All in all, it’s good for your skin without being bad for the environment. Thank you, Stella.
