Keen on expanding your beauty collection? Read on to discover the latest and greatest products that are hitting shelves in May.
Benefit Cheek Parade
Can’t get enough of Benefit’s blushes? Stock up with this super-sized palette that contains not one, two or three, but five full-sized powders including bronzing Hoola, perfecting Hoola Lite, gorgeously pink Dandelion, shimmering California and rose gold Rockateur.
Jo Malone London Star Magnolia Cologne & Hair Mist
One of our favourite ways to wear fragrance is with a spritz of it in our hair, and the latest one on our radar is Jo Malone’s version. It’s layered with star magnolia, along with orange flower and lemon for a zingy twist. We’re also loving the interesting addition of shiso, which is an aromatic herb native to Japan.
Sisley White Ginger Contouring Oil for Legs
Moisturising and toning your legs shouldn’t just be reserved for the warmer months. Protect your limbs from daily aggressors like harsh air conditioning and cool winds with a nourishing body moisturiser like Sisley White Ginger Contouring Oil. It’s loaded with essential and nut oils that your skin will love.
Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask
The newest trend in skin care masks? Tissue masks, which are much thinner than a regular cloth mask. Garnier's version is infused with lots of hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and plant serums to rehydrate the surface, address fine lines and reboot your complexion’s radiance.
Burberry Scented Candle Collection
Nothing beats a set of gorgeous candles to transform your house into a home. Burberry’s candles are filled with the most incredible notes like blooming purple hyacinth, calming English rose and (Beauty Crew office favourite) intense and sweet highland berry. They may be mini in size, but they sure pack a fragrant punch.
Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair 1%
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is one of the most powerful ingredients used in anti-ageing skin care, and Dermalogica’s Overnight Retinol Repair lives up to expectations. Sold in two separate units - a Buffer Cream and the Overnight Retinol Repair 1% - they can be used together or on their own to target wrinkles, pigmentation and moisture levels.
Elizabeth Arden Sheer Kiss Lip Oils
Housed in a handy compact, Elizabeth Arden Sheer Kiss Lip Oils are a serious cinch to use and they give lips a gorgeous lightweight pop of colour. Plus, they’re enriched with coconut oil to smooth and soothe chapped skin.
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Red Carpet Collection
Update your nail polish collection with these lush shades that’ll work well with your winter wardrobe now that the cool weather is in tow. We’re loving the argan oil-based formulas of these paints, which promise to keep nails strong.
Rationale Beautiful Cheeks Superfluid SPF50
Not only do these teensy bottles exude coolness (they’ll look great on your dressing table), they’re also packed with colour pigments that will warm up your complexion. Impressively, they also contain SPF 50 to keep your skin extra protected through the day.
Sukin Super Greens Cleansing Oil
From clearing away day-to-day impurities to melting waterproof makeup, Sukin’s Super Greens Cleansing Oil can do it all. We’re especially loving the blend of chia and jojoba oils that won’t strip moisture and is gentle on skin.
ghd v ruby sunset styler
Forget hair tools that are monochromatic and instead set your eyes on ghd’s new styler that comes in fire engine red, which is sure to grab your attention every morning. We’re also loving its 2.7 metre swivel cord, lighter body (so your arm won’t get sore halfway through straightening your hair) and its automatic shut-off function that kicks in after 30 minutes of non-use.
Ella Baché Tomate Granule Free Micro Exfoliant
If you’re looking for a new way to refine the surface of your skin, try Ella Baché’s exfoliant. It contains papaya extract to eat away at dead skin cells, tomato seeds to nourish and brighten, and omega 6 and 9 to protect the skin’s moisture barriers. Available May 23.
Doctor Babor Firming Lip Booster
Who doesn’t want fuller looking lips? Doctor Babor Firming Lip Booster is an excellent option for those that aren’t ready to take the plunge with fillers yet, as it delivers hyaluronic acid into the area, along with plumping sodium hyaluronate to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
L’Oréal Professionnel Serioxyl Denser Hair Gelée
Address one of the most problematic hair issues - thinning hair - with L’Oréal’s culty Serioxyl treatment that now comes in a gel consistency for improved hydration and efficacy. Use daily for three months to see a noticeable difference.
frank body Shimmer Scrub
What do you get when you mix frank body’s popular coffee scrub with mermaid-inspired glitter specks? An incredibly addictive buy if you ask us. This special edition body scrub features ground robusta beans to slough away dead skin cells, sugar and salt to refine the surface, and lots of gold and silver glow dust for a glistening effect.
