This Just In: New Beauty Products Worth Talking About
Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Healthy Glow (£35)
With clever pigments that adapt to your natural skin tone, this tinted moisturiser will give you that perfect, beachy, sun-kissed glow we're always after. It's also packed with hydrating ingredients, so this is maybe all you need to put on your skin. It's so hydrating that even the men in your life can use it (without the tint going patchy in stubble). The only problem you may have is getting it back off them.
Nars Bord de Plage Palette (£45)
Better than any Facetune filter, meet the new Nars highlighting and bronzing palette, aka all your skin needs for summer. It contains four opalescent tones to give your complexion serious glow and two bronzers (a lighter one for the start of the season and a darker option for when you've picked up a tan).
Elemis Life Elixirs Sleep Bath & Shower Elixir (£55)
It can be hard to switch your mind off before heading to sleep. Elemis is here to help with its new range of Life Elixirs, aimed to comfort, strengthen and aid sleep. The bath and shower elixir is a gorgeous oil that turns milky on contact with skin and releases a calm-inducing scent of patchouli and palmarosa to help your body relax and your brain slow down. All of which will give you a better night's sleep.
Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam (£10)
It may take you a few seconds to get your head round the idea of a foam-based dry shampoo, but do, because the latest product from the Kardashians' hairstylist, Jen Atkin, is a game changer. Apply it as you would a regular mousse, massage in and it does all the work of a dry shampoo without any of the powdery residue, leaving your hair feeling and looking like it has been washed.
Molton Brown Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel Bath & Shower Gel (£20)
Is there anything better than a fancy shower gel? We don't think so, which is why you need to know about the latest scent from Molton Brown, a heady mix of sweet jasmine, salty sea fennel and woody cypress. In short, it's a sensorial delight for your morning shower.
James Read Gradual Tan Coconut Melting Tanning Balm Face & Body (£30)
With a base of organic coconut oil this gradual tan delivers serious hydration as well as a beautiful golden glow that develops over six to eight hours. And with a subtle (read: not overpowering) coconut scent.
Vichy Minéral 89 (£25)
If you're looking for something to protect your skin against daily aggressors and get some serious hydration at the same time, this is it. This brand-new serum from Vichy contains the brand's unique mineralizing water, which has been proven to boost antioxidant defences in the skin. Previously Vichy had only been able to use 20% concentration in products because it's so hard to stabilise, but thanks to new technology, this one has an 89% concentration. Vichy has teamed it with hyaluronic acid, the moisture maker for skin, creating one very powerful serum at an amazing price point. Run and get it.
Charles Worthington Radiance Restore Charcoal Shampoo (£7)
Charcoal in a shampoo? That's right. Think of what a charcoal-based mask does for your skin; it purifies, deeply cleanses and detoxes. That's exactly what this shampoo does for your hair. It's even an exceptionally pleasing shade of shimmering grey, but don't panic: It washes out to reveal shinier looking hair.
Benefit Dandelion Twinkle (£25)
If you loved the original Dandelion (and of course you do—it's one of the most perfect peachy-pink blushers out there), then you're going to adore its sparkly new sister. When we say sparkly, don't think teenage glitter: This is all about a subtle luminosity that will make your skin instantly glow.
Elemental Herbology Radiance & Vitality Nutrition Infusion Sheet Mask (£35)
If you haven't discovered Elemental Herbology, then may we introduce you to the brand's first-ever pack of four sheet masks? They're packed with the company's signature mix of botanicals, vitamins and actives. It is ideal for skin that needs a boost of hydration, as it contains a vitamin B3 complex that will lock moisture in, as well as skin that needs a bit of healing help, as it also is packed with aloe vera to calm and soothe. You can even leave these masks in the fridge for hot, balmy days when your skin needs an instant cooling refresh. Genius.
Jo Malone London Iris & Lady Moore Charity Home Candle (£46)
Not only does this new candle look amazing, smell like a dream but a donation equal to 75% of the retail price goes directly to The Quiet Garden in Notting Hill. The Quiet Garden has been created by one of the UK's leading homelessness charities, St Mungo's, and with the money raised with Jo Malone London, it will help train homeless people in gardening and give them a safe place where they can reconnect.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter Palette in Medium Dark Shift (£40)
For medium to dark skin tones, one side contains powders (three for contouring and one pearl shade for highlighting), and the other holds creams (two for contouring, two for colour-correcting and one pearl shade for highlighting).
Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter Palette in Light Medium Shift (£40)
This palette also comes in light to medium. Super versatile, the eight shades are divided by a handy double-sided mirror.
The new iconic Bronze Goddess from Estée Lauder promises to be an addictive, sun-drenched scent, including vanilla, warm amber and coconut notes. We can just see the palm tress.
Sunday Riley C.E.O. C+E antiOXIDANT Protect & Repair Moisturiser (£60)
If you've been on one of those partying and sunning holidays, then you need this to make you appear fully refreshed. This moisturiser is packed full of vitamin C and will give skin back its glow.
Jo Malone The Bloomsbury Set in Leather & Artemisia (£46)
Jo Malone's new collection of limited-edition fragrances is inspired by the arty and downright debauched Bloomsbury set (seriously, google them). This leather scent is seriously sassy, but we're also partial to the whiskey-infused perfume in the lineup. Note the artistic bottles: They're bound to sell out fast (you have been warned).
Elizabeth Arden White Tea EDT (£36)
With a bright, fresh, crisp, clean scent, this is the perfect palette cleanser to help welcome in the new season. With mandarin and "sea breeze accord," this smells bright at first, but as the day wears on, sensual wood and musk notes turn this into a sassier scent.
BareMinerals Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Boss (£17)
A great nude lip is a staple for most women, which is why BareMinerals has created Gen Nude, a collection of 40 neutral lip shades that come in four different finishes: Matte Liquid, Buttercream Lipgloss, Radiant Lipstick and Under Over Lip Liner.
Vichy Idealia Peeling (£30)
If glowing skin is your goal, this is the product you need. A daily peeling product, this contains antioxidant blueberries and fermented kombucha black tea to slough away dead skin cells and protect your complexion. After cleansing, simply swipe over skin using a cotton pad to reveal brighter, dewier-looking skin. Seriously, it's a bathroom cabinet staple of our editors now.
Stila Matte 'n Metal Eye Shadow Palette (£39)
With 12 totally wearable eye shadow shades (six matte and six metallic), this suits-all palette gives you endless opportunity to create incredible day and night eye looks.
