Get ready for Spring and Summer with MECCA! This week, MECCA is launching two new additions to their cult suncare range include its first SPF50+ sun serum with 3% niacinamide!  Here is a sneak peek to whet your appetite ahead of the launches this week.


Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF50+ Brightening Sun Serum

This innovative serum offers a trifecta of benefits: Brightening Sun Serum helps to minimise the appearance of sun damage, protects against future damage and refines skin complexion with the cumulative benefits of active skincare. As always, Mecca Cosmetica continues to prioritise transparency and trust with customers by sharing potent levels of active skincare ingredients and Brightening Sun Serum is no exception.


The ultra-lightweight formulation with broad spectrum protection is bolstered by 3% niacinamide to smooth the appearance of fine lines and boost radiance. Liquorice root extract reduces the appearance of pigmentation and helps shield against environmental aggressors, while saccharide isomerate hydrates and smooths skin. Applied as the last step in your skincare routine, the transparent serum melts into skin, imparting a luminous glow to create the perfect, dewy skin or base for makeup to follow.

MECCA’s Head of Skin Education, Lucy Shaw, knows that the best SPF is the one you will wear every day. So, having a formulation with the dual benefits of skincare and skin-prep only gives more reason to reach for your SPF in the morning.  “If you are a skincare lover, rest assured this trifecta of benefits in reviving, correcting and protecting has you covered. If you’re a makeup wearer, you’ll find that this sun serum isn’t a typical sunscreen that may disturb makeup, rather it enhances the application, leaving a hydrated, bright and luminous base for those who (like me!) favour a dewy finish for their foundation and tinted moisturisers alike. Alternatively, it imparts the best barely-there natural glow.” says Shaw.

Mecca Cosmetica’s NEW To Save Face SPF50+ Brightening Sun Serum ($48 AUD) is available Tuesday 23 August


MECCA MAX Screen Saver SPF30 Facial Sunscreen

One of Australia’s fastest growing beauty brands, MECCA MAX, has launched a NEW broad spectrum facial sunscreen, that won’t mess with your makeup. MECCA MAX SCREEN SAVER SPF30 Facial Sunscreen has been made for makeup MAXimalists and minimalists alike. This new generation formula has been specifically developed with naturally derived emollients, absorbs quickly and imparts a dry touch finish when applied on skin. With broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, it’s light and easy to apply, with an invisible matte finish. Suitable for all skin types, MECCA MAX SCREEN SAVER SPF30 is infused with aloe vera, goji berry extract, vitamin E and chamomile. This sunscreen is 100% vegan and cruelty-free (and pretty much amazing), with no fragrance, synthetic dyes, essential oils or parabens that might irritate skin.

MECCA’s Skincare Manager, Lucy Shaw said this light facial sunscreen was specially designed with makeup wearers in mind “it’s lightweight, fast-absorbing and designed to sit perfectly under makeup or be worn alone. This SPF gives a real-skin finish that’s not too dewy or matte. It’s non-greasy and gentle on blemish-prone skin,”  When applying before makeup, Shaw suggests applying MECCA MAX SCREEN SAVER SPF30 as your last skincare step. “If you’re an oily or combination skin type, skip moisturiser and apply one teaspoon of SCREEN SAVER SPF30 and massage in until absorbed. If your skin is more dry or parched, apply your usual moisturiser first, followed by one teaspoon of SCREEN SAVER SPF30 as your last step before makeup”, said Shaw.

MECCA MAX SCREEN SAVER SPF30 ($25 AUD) and is available from Tuesday 23rd August.


Both sunscreens are available exclusively in MECCA stores and online at
