Want to know what the latest must-have beauty buys are? You’ve come to the right place. Read on to see what new products we’re coveting this month.
La Mer The Moisturising Matte Lotion
Here’s the perfect opportunity to incorporate La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth into your skin care routine if you think their original Crème de la Mer formula is too rich or thick. The Moisturising Matte Lotion is much lighter in consistency than their signature product, and the formula is also infused with clay, sea minerals and kelp powder to mattify your complexion, making it an ideal product for combination or oily skin types.
L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod
Nothing gets our team more excited than the return of a best-selling tool, and needless to say, we were beyond ecstatic to see L’Oréal Professionnel’s Steampod make a comeback. This tool can create straight to wavy hairstyles, and as the name suggests, it incorporates steam to hydrate and smooth hair while it’s in use. It can even be used on hair that’s slightly damp.
Penhaligon’s Savoy Steam EDP
Pretty up your dresser with Penhaligon’s Savoy Steam EDP, a spritz that looks and smells incredibly beautiful. As for the juice itself, it’s a mix of aromatic and floral notes like rosemary oil, pink pepper, rose, geranium and incense, and is pared back but bursting with character. This is a fragrance you won’t get sick of applying every day.
Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel
Upgrade your shower or bath with Molton Brown’s incredibly decadent Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel. It incorporates fruity and floral notes like rhubarb, rose, grapefruit, mandarin and vanilla to awaken the senses. Be quick, it’s limited edition and won’t be available for long.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream has had a temporary packaging revamp, with their latest limited edition design penned by Australian pop band Client Liaison. Purchase this nourishing face moisturiser throughout July and August and Kiehl’s will donate $2 from each sale to The Australian Children’s Music Foundation, an organisation that brings the gift of music to children living in disadvantaged and remote areas of Oz.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Pump
Good news for those who can’t get enough of Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup but would prefer an easier pump applicator; the launch of their latest accessory, the Double Wear Pump, attaches to the foundation bottle with ease and can effectively distribute a small dollop of base onto your hand or makeup brush without the worry of over-pouring.
Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Detoxifying Gel-Balm
Need something that will make you look like you’ve had a good night’s sleep, even when you’re not getting enough zzzs? The new Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Detoxifying Gel-Balm acts as an overnight sleeping mask to refresh tired-looking skin, and contains barley leaf extract to encourage oxygen delivery to the skin and amino acids to detoxify.
Revlon Mega Multiplier
Addicted to lash-lengthening mascaras? Us too, which is why we’re swiping on Revlon’s Mega Multiplier this month. Loaded with tiny microfibres to make your lashes look longer, this waterproof buy is flake-free, smudge-proof and has a tubing formula that can be easily removed without heavy-duty scrubbing.
Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine
We’re hooked on Giorgio Armani’s Ecstasy Shine lippies this month, as they feel nourishing like a balm, offer the coverage of a lipstick and shine like a gloss. Our favourite shade is 501 Eccentrico, a punchy blue-based pink that can brighten light to dark skin tones in a single swipe.
Ecoya Candle in Spiced Ginger & Musk
Just like a hot cup of chai, Ecoya’s latest scent Spiced Ginger & Musk can warm up the senses and is the perfect thing to ignite on a cold winter’s day. “This new scent leans towards a unisex feel, and is something that your other half will enjoy just as much as you do,” says our editor Carli Alman.
