Winter is upon us, which means the dreaded three D’s (dullness, dryness and dehydration) are set to take over. And although we’ve got our winter makeup essentials down pat, our skin is crying out for some major TLC. Luckily our new July beauty finds are here to save the day.
Set to hydrate and glow these ten new products are giving us Euro summer vibes, and we’re here for it.
Synergie Skin HyDrolock
This incredibly rich formula is set to quench dry skin. It’s specifically designed to replenish water levels in your skin, boosting hydration and locking in moisture with emollient oils and antioxidant protection to aid in reversal of free radical damage. The Synergie Skin HyDrolock moisturiser is perfect for dry skin, mature skin with fine lines and sensitive skin.

NARS Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick
Is it a lipstick, is it a gloss? It’s both! The NARS Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick is created with the idea that colour and care go hand in hand. Why sacrifice hydration for colour? With shea and mango butter as ingredients you don't have to. Set to smooth and provide 8-hour hydration, this product delivers nourishment to your lips, with 10 stunning shades to choose from. This hydrating hybrid applies as a comfortable lightweight, non-sticky formula – we love not getting our hair stuck in our lips on a windy day.

Go-To Glow Exfoliator
Zoë Foster Blake (our queen) just keeps on expanding her already incredible Go-To line. And the new Glow Exfoliator is on our list of faves already, because really who wouldn’t want to be glowing and radiant? The best thing about this exfoliator is that, while it's formulated with two hard working acids (we’ll get to them), it also has Tasmanian pepper leaf extract, an antioxidant that boosts hydration, soothes and reduces redness, so your skin isn't left stripped of moisture. This gentle exfoliator is powered by two AHAs: glycolic acid to promote skin renewal, and mandelic acid, which contains antibacterial properties to encourage skin cell turnover, leaving you with radiant, more youthful and hydrated skin.

And what a perfect make-up base this skinscreen makes, with a serum-like consistency that melts into the skin.
