Meet Bolt Beauty, the latest must-have sustainable, skincare line set to add some voltage to your skincare regime.
Bolt Beauty launches with four innovative products. ‘Filthy Clean’, which gently cleanses the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. ‘Mad about Moisture’, a nourishing moisturiser with antioxidants to quench thirsty skin. ‘Vitamin A Game’, a clever 0.15% retinol plus Vitamin E, making it ideal for those prone to reaction or just introducing a retinoid into their skincare routine and ‘Glow, Don’t Shine’ which is designed to fight blemishes and excess oils without diminishing the dewiness of the skin.
Each clever formula comes in a blueberry sized pearlescent, seaweed capsule which, once used, can simply be dissolved in water or thrown in your compost bin: zero waste beauty. Only one capsule needs to be used for the entirety of the face, eliminating the need for product waste.
ZitSticka Killa Pimple Patches
ZitSticka’s KILLA tiny micro dart patches target deep, under-the-skin pimples. Containing just five ingredients – which include hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, and niacinamide – the incredible swipe and stick kit dissolve blemishes at the source, rather than just treating the skin’s surface.
These tiny, clear, patches get to work just two hours after being applied, flooding the heart of your zit with hard-working ingredients.
Elsewhere, the CLEANA wipes which are soaked in exfoliating, de-stressing ingredients—can be used independently to beautify a superficial zit’s appearance.
ZitSticka Skin Discipline Pills
Skin Discipline is a 100% drug-free formulation of vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and fatty acids that helps to minimize breakouts by easing the skin’s surface level inflammation, regulating sebum levels, and balancing skin-supportive bacteria – all from the inside out.
ZitSticka’s nested cap-in-cap technology allows for these breakout-specific, clinically-proven ingredients that would typically live separately to appear in one single dose.
If you have acne that just won’t quit, you’ll want to try Skin Discipline to help curb breakout-causing toxins, strengthen skin cell walls, and accelerate cell turnover.
