See youthfulness in a whole new light
Introducing Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum
It’s a fact. Sun spots, age spots and uneven skin tone can add years to your appearance, robbing your skin of its natural, youthful radiance. For many women, the only solution has been an expensive trip to the dermatologist for a laser-brightening treatment. Not anymore. Today, Avon has the at-home alternative for brighter, younger-looking skin.
From Avon’s $100 million Research and Development Centre in Suffren, N.Y comes Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum enriched with dermatologist-grade L-Aspartic Acid. Avon’s scientists have harnessed the power of L-Aspartic Acid, a naturally occurring amino acid to deliver dramatic brightening results:
INSTANTLY* skin looks brighter, more even toned
In just 3 days* the look of dark spots and discolourations visibly fade to match skin’s natural tone
In 2 weeks* skin appears more translucent, more refined
In 4 weeks** 100% of women showed an improvement in texture, clarity and fine wrinkling
Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum is powered by two key ingredients that work in tandem to reduce discolourations and other signs of ageing on contact:
Anti-Dark Spot Helix enriched with dermatologist-grade L-Aspartic Acid to help dramatically fade the appearance of discolourations and dark spots. Brightening Gel to gently exfoliate dull skin to help reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion.
Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum is a targeted treatment so it can be used with any Anew skin care range. For best results, use every evening after cleansing. Follow with your Anew moisturiser.
Anew Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum will be available through Avon Representatives nationwide from the 14th of July, 2010. RRP $79.99.

Repair and restructure mature, damaged skin
with Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum…
Effective treatment of mature and sun damaged skin is at a crossroads… with the phrase “antiageing” appropriated as a marketing tool by faceless corporations the world over the term has become generic and outmoded. Increasingly we’re turning to the scalpel and the needle in our endlessly escalating quest for ‘visible results’…
As pioneers in the field of skin resurfacing and renewal for nearly 20 years, Alpha-H offers something entirely different. Topical alternatives to cosmetic surgery which use triple vitamin therapy, Peptide technology and Glycolic Extract – the only fruit acid scientifically proven to stimulate production of both collagen and Hyaluronic Acid; the key components respectively in maintaining tissue resilience and moisture levels in human skin. Components which our body crucially begins to run out of as the years
Accelerated ageing can’t be hidden by Botox or a heavier foundation. During our 30’s the wrinkles deepen, the cells of the epidermis become stained with pigmentation; pre-menopausal symptoms include redness, broken capillaries, acne and dehydration. The average skin loses 2.1% of its collagen matrix per year after puberty. But in the first 5 years of menopause it can lose up to 30%!
In 2000 Alpha-H created Liquid Gold, a skin resurfacing treatment which uses a state of the art, low pH delivery system to diminish wrinkles. Now 10 years later, we’ve taken that original formula to the next level with the introduction of Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum.
This water-based serum combines 14% Glycolic Extract and the latest Peptide formula (Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5) to radically reinvigorate collagen production; Vitamin A to accelerate cell turnover, and encapsulated high dose Vitamin E to repair lipid damage and restore suppleness, comfort and flexibility.
Skin discolouration is addressed by Niacinamide, a cutaneous form of Vitamin B3 with an extraordinary breadth of skin benefits: both as an anti-inflammatory to reduce redness, acne and Rosacea and as a melanin inhibitor to reduce pigmentation and age spots.
This combination of repairing and restructuring ingredients is grounded in a base of water-binding Sodium Hyaluronate (the primary ingredient of Restylane) which has a tiny molecular size, allowing it to penetrate deep into the skin; plumping the surface cells whilst also bathing the network of elastin fibres underneath – to prevent them from becoming dry, loose and brittle.
These improvements in skin texture, tone and vitality are sustainable. This is not a “quick fix”, but a cumulative treatment; a safe, painless and effective way to keep your skin looking younger and healthier

Discover the New Line of Beauty at Napoleon Perdis This Winter
Life is more fun when you read between the lines, especially if those lines are composed of zinging colour. Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics, Australia’s leading makeup brand, is fleshing out its collection of eye, lip and brow pencils with dazzling new formulations and a beguiling array of new shades. The pencils, 22 in total, glide on effortlessly and stay put for long wearability. A stellar pencil is both the first and final touch for any look, from dramatically defined to smoldering effects, from winged eyes to strong lips and lush groomed brows. The Napoleon
Perdis collection lets you line, define and refine your features with masterful results each time. “Time to sharpen up your winter beauty look,” says Napoleon Perdis, “and sometimes all it takes is a little shimmering liner.”
Super Precise Brow Liner – RRP: $24
“Don’t let your brows take a beating. Use a precision liner.” –Napoleon
Napoleon Perdis Brow Pencils are ultra soft, glide on easily and blend on demand for a natural look. The retractable applicator means there is no sharpening required, while the smooth lead covers even the tiniest gaps in the brows.
The lasting formula is free of mineral oil and preservatives and contains natural anti-oxidants for added protection. PRO TIP The secret to amplifying sparse brows is to create natural-looking texture. Select a pencil in a matching shade, scribble it onto the back of your hand and apply the colour to your brow using a stiff angled brush. Use the same pencil to simulate individual hairs by drawing directly onto the brow. Blend with a brow comb.
Natural Kohl Eyeliner – RRP: $24
“The windows to the soul require an equally beautiful frame.” –Napoleon
Napoleon Perdis Eye Pencils are sophisticated wood-clenched tools that provide excellent coverage and exact lining.
With an easy grip handle, each pencil gently outlines the eye with a soft, creamy formula that is easily blendable and available in a tempting variety of kaleidoscopic colours—from “Bottle Green” to “Blue Denim.” The lasting formula is free of mineral oil and preservatives and contains natural anti-oxidants for added protection.
PRO TIP Smudge pencil after application with a brush for a sizzling, smoky finish. Line above the upper and lower lash line with a touch of blue eyeliner—it brightens up the eye and accentuates the whites. Lining the inner rim of the eye with white liner makes the eyes appear larger and fresher since it reduces redness.
High Precision Lip Liner – RRP: $25
“Keep your lips looking sharp with my precision pencils.” –Napoleon
Napoleon Perdis Lip Liner is a true treat for the lips, the ideal partner to either a full coverage lipstick or a shiny gloss. Each pencil provides a soft and smooth look in vivid colours ranging from “Hot Mocha” to “Mauve Minx.”
To enhance the natural shape of your lips, the liner glides on gently with no feathering. The lasting formula is free of mineral oil and preservatives and contains natural anti-oxidants for added protection.
PRO TIP Apply liner after—not before—you apply lipstick. The liner will glide on smoothly, leaving a more natural outline, and still prevent the colour from bleeding.

The Power to Even Skin Tone
Scientifically proven to provide Results Equal to a Leading Ingredient used by Dermatologists. Introducing ‘The Damage Eraser’ – Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector.
When Clinique asked 600 Australian women aged between 18 and 64 about hyperpigmentation in 2010, we revealed that it is the third largest skin concern in Australia, and that it effects 62% of women surveyed*. To combat this growing concern, for the first time, a prestige cosmetics brand now offers scientifically proven results for evening skin tone in a skin care product. Introducing Clinique’s NEW Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. This new treatment serum effectively helps fade the appearance of dark spots, age spots and discolourations due to ageing, years of accumulated sun damage, environmental assaults, and past acne scarring, to reveal a more uniformly radiant complexion. Laboratory tests have proven the performance of Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector to be comparable to a leading available ingredient at 4, 8 and 12 weeks for evening skin tone. A verified 53% improvement in skin tone after using Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector for 12 weeks.
One difference – this “damage eraser” is gentle and non-irritating and ideal for skins that cannot tolerate other skin brightening treatments. And no call or cost for a dermatologist visit, women can get superior strength skin-evening results at home.
As an authority in skin care and a leading dermatological brand, Clinique firmly believes that a custom-fit, multi-pronged approach is the best way to achieve brighter, more even-toned and radiant skin. Clinique’s multi-prong approach combats facial discolouration at various levels. Our core ingredients help prevent the appearance of new dark spots, visibly breaking up the appearance of existing pigmentation as it clusters on the skin and when the broken up clusters disperse into melanin “dust,” will gently exfoliate and whisk away revealing brighter, luminous skin.
THE BREAKTHROUGH: CL-302 COMPLEX
Clinique’s patent-pending CL-302 complex features a new plant-derived technology that is scientifically proven to significantly improve evenness of skin tone, radiance and clarity. The new CL-302 complex consists of five synergistic brightening ingredients, including:
* A rare botanical extract originally derived from Dianella Ensifolia (Border Silver), which originates in Southeast Asia, helps dramatically reduce and prevent the appearance of uneven, pigmented skin. Additionally, this potent antioxidant molecule helps protect skin against free radical damage.
* A potent Vitamin C derivative, Ascorbyl Glucoside, helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots.
* Blackout Yeast Extract provides effective brightening results by visibly breaking up large clusters of pigment at the skin’s surface into microscopic particles that are diffused throughout the skin, helping to diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone.
* Glucosamine and Salicylic Acid provide exfoliation benefits to help normalise cell turnover and assist the departure of surface pigmented skin cells for renewed clarity and brighter skin.
Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector, containing this newly designed complex, partnered with Clinique’s existing hyperpigmentation technology has been scientifically proven to provide results on par with a leading ingredient normally used by dermatologists for evening of skin tone.
EFFECTIVE AND GENTLE
Uneven skin tone affects all skin types and tones and Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector shows exceptional strength results for all ethnicities. Improvement in skin clarity and radiance are immediately noticeable. Overtime, skin is more even-toned and uniformly radiant. Even stubborn dark spots will see improvement in as little as four weeks.
True to Clinique’s heritage, Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector offers visible results in a gentle formula. This lightweight, layerable serum can be used for extended periods of time without the irritation, redness, dryness and uneven blotches some prescriptions may cause. Skin is left silky, smooth and soft.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Additional powerful ingredients in Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector which help to contribute to the reduction of discolouration caused by hyperpigmentation include:
* Patent-Pending Trametes Versicolor Extract, a unique concentrated mushroom extract, provides effective brightening results by visibly breaking up existing dark spots into microparticles and making them less visible on the skin.
* Curcuma Longa Turmeric Root Extract and Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract are powerful antioxidants that help fend against environmental assaults that can off set excess melanin production.
* The non-irritant Glycyrrhetinic Acid helps protect against the visible effects of irritation caused by external stimuli or stress by soothing and comforting skin.
A department store product comparable to a leading prescription ingredient for evening skin tone, Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector is effective on all skin types and ethnicities. Apply twice a day after 3-Step Skin Care Regimen. Spread evenly over the entire face, avoiding the immediate eye area. In the morning, finish with Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15.
Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free. Oil-Free. Non-Acnegenic. Dermatologist Tested. Ophthalmologist Tested.
NEW Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector will be available 2 May 2010 at Clinique counters nationwide and at www.clinique.com.au.
