A new season is the perfect excuse to give your credit card a workout and show some self-love with a few beauty treats that will see you through the first month of autumn. Go on and treat yourself; here are our top picks for brand new beauty products.
Hermès Eau Des Merveilles Bleue EDT
We’re sad to see summer come to an end, but we’re thrilled to have this new spritz to remind us of warm balmy nights. This oceanic fragrance captures sea spray, patchouli and light woods, and is a heavenly combination for both genders.
The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Soothing & Caring Bath Milk
With the cool weather change in tow, it’s essential to protect and moisturise your skin with greater emphasis. Switch out your regular body wash and try The Body Shop’s new bath milk instead, which is enriched with almond oil and almond milk to protect the skin’s natural barriers.
Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real Double The Lip
Now it’s a cinch to get in on the ombré lip trend. Benefit’s new lippies feature two shades within the one bullet - a darker shade to line, and a lighter colour to accentuate - and are designed to give you instant ombre lips in one sweep.
La Mer Brilliance Brightening Mask
Banish dull looking skin almost immediately with a layer of La Mer’s new Brilliance Brightening Mask, applied once a week. Interestingly, the product comes in two parts - a lightweight primer to stimulate blood flow around your face, and a gel cream that captures the hydrating and softening benefits of the brand’s signature Miracle Broth.
Redken No Blow Dry Air Stylers
Hate fighting for a coveted hairdryer at the gym in the morning? Coat your mid-lengths to ends with a small dollop of Redken’s No Blow Dry creams and let the air do the hard work for you. Airy Cream is perfect for fine hair, Just Right Cream is great for medium hair, and Dry Bossy Cream is ideal for coarse hair.
MAC Fix+ in Rose
MAC’s Fix+ is renowned for prepping skin for makeup and setting your look, but the new variants come lightly scented to refresh the senses too. Our top picks are grounding lavender, fresh cucumber, and invigorating rose.
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum
Arden’s original Ceramide Capsules have been a popular choice for supporting the skin’s repair process, but we’re even more excited about the launch of the new capsules that are loaded with ceramides, fatty acids and sea fennel extract to target lines, wrinkles, tone and clarity.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam
So you’ve seen dry shampoo sprays, but what about a dry shampoo foam? Ouai’s new launch comes from an interesting medical issue; “one of my followers is a nurse, and she tipped me onto this product they use in hospitals for patients that can’t wash their hair or get their hair wet,” says founder and hairstylist Jen Atkin. To use, rub a small dollop into your roots and continue doing so until there’s no residue left. “I just wanted something that didn’t feel cakey and looked untouchable.”
Avène Hydrance Aqua Cream-In-Gel
Feed thirsty skin with Avène’s new buy that’s loaded with hydrating ingredients (such as hyaluronic acid), as well as their magical thermal spring water, which is known for its calming powers. Great for sensitive skin that struggles in the cold weather.
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Oil
Whether you’re into barely-there nudes or deep and dark reds and maroons, Burt’s Bees’ new lip oils have you covered. They’re incredibly hydrating, feel light on lips and can tint your smackers with a soft wash of colour. What more could you ask for in a lippie?!
Uew Strong Keratin Detangler
Created by hairstylist Sam Overton, Uew is a new haircare and styling range that looks incredible in any bathroom and works a treat on your tresses. Our favourite is the Keratin Detangler, which can strengthen and add shine to wet or dry hair.
