British brand The Inkey List caused a bit of a stir upon its launch last year. Hailed as a new The Ordinary, the extremely affordable range of skincare essentials has just arrived in Arnotts.

The latest brand aimed at democratising skincare, with clear language and accessible pricing, it was founded by Mark Curry and Colette Newberry who had worked in beauty buying and product development. The range launched with a tight 15-product edit and a salicylic acid cleanser and beta hydroxy acid exfoliant are set to launch this month.
