13 New Summer Beauty Buys We Can't Stop Talking About



Want to know the best new summer beauty buys that you should add to basket? Of course you do. Now, we don't want to jinx it, but it feels like sunny days are just around the corner. Before long, we'll be swapping our morning hot cup of coffee for iced lattes, lunchtime bowls of soup for poké, and no longer dashing home from work to curl up with Netflix when we could have an al fresco aperitif. (Okay, that last one might not always happen.)

And as excited as we get about all the incredible Christmas beauty sets, summer beauty is really where it's at. There's less of a novelty factor, and more of a focus on making products smell delicious, feel lighter on the skin and last throughout long, sweaty days. Despite our London postcode, the tiniest peek of sun turns us straight into beach-bound California girls. Ocean air–whipped hair? A bronzed décolletage? Glowing skin? Yes, please.

There are some summer beauty classics that never get old (we get positively dizzy with excitement when we get our first whiff of Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess every year, and yes the new one is available now), but there’s always a fresh crop of innovative products to clamour over. This year, we’ve already spotted what’s possibly the most ingenious mascara of all time (no, seriously), some incredibly luxurious, long-lasting body sprays and the ultimate salt spray.

These 13 buys will see you right this summer, so take a click through the gallery and see what catches your eye. We’ll see you at the checkout.
