Looking to make some additions to your beauty kit but not sure what?
Here are some of the best new beauty products to have just hit shelves (or coming later this month!).
It looks like a regular straightener, but the Dyson Corrale™ is so much more than that. Featuring flexing plate technology that helps gather your hair for a more seamless straightening experience (which means less excessive heat damage!), you can have silky smooth hair in no time at all. Even better, you can use it cord-free and it’s got a few temperature settings, so you can adjust to suit your hair type.
LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza Eau de Toilette
We may not be able to go on an international beach holiday any time soon, but the fresh and fun notes in LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza Eau de Toilette will feel like you are sitting on a white sandy beach with an icy Pina Colada in hand. Coconut water is layered with bright green galbanum and Madagascan mandarin oils, then mixed with heart notes of driftwood, sand lily and frangipani flowers, and finished off with vanilla absolute, Sulawesi patchouli oil and warm ambergris. Heaven!
Synergie Skin Stay Home Care Pack
If your skin is freaking out right now, it could be because your stress levels are a bit higher than normal (understandable), and that’s sending your hormones and cortisol levels out of whack, which is what’s contributing to less-than-ideal skin. The Stay At Home Care Pack has been designed to help balance, restore and replenish the skin, calming areas of irritation while offering the perfect excuse for a bit of personal pamper time. Also, it comes with a bonus hospital-grand hand sanitiser!
Clarins Sweet Neroli Dry Body Oil
Winter is coming, and there’s no better way to ward off dull, dry and lacklustre skin than with the Clarins Sweet Neroli Dry Body Oil. The lightweight and non-greasy oil will absorb in a flash and leaves behind the beautiful lingering scent of neroli for you to enjoy all day (or night).
Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer
Is there anything Robyn Fenty, AKA Rihanna, releases that we don’t immediately want to get our hands on? This delightfully creamy (yet light-as-air) cream bronzer is heaven for adding natural warmth and glow – and with seven shades it’ll work a treat on all skin tones.
FOREO UFO 2
If you thought FOREO’s original UFO was something you wanted in your bathroom cupboard, you best believe the UFO 2 is going to have you clicking add to cart immediately. The handheld device is a 90-second masking session and LED treatment in one that can be paired with a variety of FOREO’s masks for a personalised treatment. Think of it as your at-home facialist.
Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Serum
Olay has combined the benefits of its iconic niacinamide with wonder anti-ageing ingredient retinol in a powerful nightly serum that can help penetrate deep below the skin’s surface to help tackle fine lines and wrinkles, while improving smoothness, elasticity, brightness, skin firmness, dark spots, and pores.
Westman Atelier Lip Suede
Isn’t this just heaven to even look at?! But more than just a beautiful compact, you’re looking at four punchy matte shades that’ll pep up any beauty look. Each shade in Lip Suede has been formulated with long-lasting pigments and botanical ingredients that help nourish and plump, so it’s not just the colour benefits you’re getting here.
Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask
How’s COVID-19 treating your skin? Not great? Breakouts, dryness and dullness? Sounds like you could use the Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask (out May 12th on sephora.com.au), a hypoallergenic overnight mask with forest yeast cica that’ll help nourish, revitalise and sooth your poor stressed-out skin.
The Dermal Diary Refining Tonic
The Dermal Diary Refining Tonic is one for those prone to congestion, blackheads and breakouts. The exfoliating toner works to dissolve the dead skin build-up that can contribute to those unwanted issues, leaving your skin rejuvenated and refined. It's also great for prepping skin for better absorption of the ingredients in your serum and moisturiser.
