After last week brought the Summer Solstice, a UK heatwave (FYI if you need the lowdown on the best sunscreens, check out our recent piece here!) and us investing in the fiery drama of Love Island on our TVs, we’re now here to bring you all the latest beauty launches.
Perhaps you’re looking to invest in the next piece to add to your go-to skincare routine or maybe you’re on the hunt for that summer fragrance? From the compact that gives you a soft summer bronze to the stick that will give you a quick flush of colour so you can glow on the go, we’re giving you all the newness so you can get ahead of the trends and be one of the first to try the products new to the beauty scene.
Pixi On The Glow Bronze – £18
With the weather heating up, you never know when you’re going to need to top up your makeup, but stress no more as Pixi launch their new range of On The Glow Bronze sticks. These bronze-tinted moisture sticks can be swiped on the skin whenever, wherever for a sun-kissed and healthy-looking complexion. Crafted using Fruit Extracts, Ginseng and Aloe Vera to nourish, renew, revitalise, balance, soothe and calm your skin (what can’t it do?) with just one swipe and a blend with your fingertips, you’re all good to glow! What’s more, you can also use this product on your lips to add a subtle nude shade that will tie your whole look together!
Scientia Beauty After Facial Glow – £39
Sometimes we don’t want to have to invest in a facial (or even leave the comfort of our own home) but finding an at-home facial that works for you can be a tough find. However, Scientia Beauty’s new After Facial Glow dream duo can help you get that pro glow in just minutes. First up on the stand is the After Facial Glow Tri-Action Peel, a 5-minute hardworking treatment that works to regulate oil production, unblock clogged pores and break down dull skin cells to reveal soft and even-looking skin. Followed by its counterpart, the After Facial Glow Post Peel Skin Solution, the next step in the peeling ritual. A calming and thirst-quenching solution that restores the skin’s PH optimum levels, locking in moisture to create a dewy, radiant and refreshed complexion – whilst also soothing any irritation, what a bonus!
Fenty Beauty Toast’d Swirl Bronze Shimmer Powder – £32
If the cream and liquid makeup trends aren’t for you, don’t worry because the inclusive beauty queen Rihanna (and her eponymous brand, Fenty Beauty) is firing up summer by launching the new Toast’d Swirl Bronzer. Achieving that same sun-kissed radiance, that we all know and love, this limited edition, supersized bronze shimmer powder is here to deliver for both the face and body. Arriving in two wearable shades, the champagne bronze ‘Chocolate Swiller’ and golden bronze ‘Pecan Swiller’, this compact is ready to give your skin that little touch of extra warmth with a smooth, blurred-skin effect. If you struggle to get that perfectly placed bronzed glow, the brand is also providing the goods with the limited edition Cheek-Hugging Bronzer Brush #190, an extra-large, plush bronzer brush expertly chiselled to hug each curve of your face and body. So you can shimmer head-to-toe (and stress-free) this summer!
Jo Malone London Jean-François Piège Candle – £63
It may be the season of sunshine but why should we shy away from some well-deserved self-care? Hint: We most definitely shouldn’t! Jo Malone London’s latest collaboration sees them teaming up with Michelin-starred chef, Jean-François Piège to create a fresh scent for your home. Say hello to the Violet Lead & Bergamot Candle, representing the seamless fusion of two creative worlds: fine food and fragrance. Bringing together three hero ingredients, each reminiscent of items from the food world, to create an idyllic elegant and welcoming atmosphere – Bergamot, a nod of Earl Grey tea, dressed in the freshness of violet leaves and garnished with the unexpected note of warm, fluffy rice (One of Jean-François’ favourite aromas!) Combining food and fragrance? Sign us up!
Peep Club Summer Eye Balm – £25
Summer is filled with numerous late nights and lots of sun, from BBQs in the garden that runs way past those 9:30pm sunsets and late-night dining on holiday to those sleepless nights trying to escape the uncomfortable heat. But who’s going to know as Peep Club released their new limited-edition Soothing Summer Eye Balm – so we can heal, calm, and soothe our under-eye area and hide the evidence of our poorly removed smudged mascara from last night! A makeover of the brand’s cult-favourite Coconut Balm cleanser, the new eye-care-all-star works to hydrate the sensitive area, whilst also cleaning, nourishing and protecting both the lashes and delicate skin around the eye. Created using the highest quality raw, organic Coconut Oil with powerful antioxidant Cureberry, you can use this little jar of goodness to soothe sore spots under the eyes from the effects of a little too much sun, or simply embrace a natural yet glossy no-makeup look on the beach with one swipe of the product. Top tip: If you want an extra cool application, pop the jar in the fridge before your skincare routine!
Peacci Regency Bloom Collection – £10 per Bottle
Let’s pay some well-deserved attention to our nails as Peacci introduces us to their new Regency Bloom collection. A swoon-worthy range of 10 beautiful shades so you can throw back to The Met and ace that Gilded Glamour theme! Championing sophistication, romance and true decadence, we meet a line of gold-infused nudes, pretty pastels and muted brights. Shades that need to be placed in the spotlight for us include Pavilion Garden, a retro high-fashion green inspired by the gardens of Brighton Pavilion, Wisteria, a pastel lilac infused with a frosted shimmer inspired by the cascading wisteria vines of springtime, and finally Love Letter, a timelessly versatile creamy off-white shade.
Miller Harris Secret Gardenia Bath & Body Collection – £20-£115
Levelling up your self-care Sundays (or every day if you’re anything like us), Miller Harris is here to accompany you with their new Secret Gardenia Bath & Body collection. With a strong line-up of three scented products, a Hand Cream, Body Cream and Body Wash, all paying homage to London’s flower-filled hidden gardens. Capturing the essence of white florals and the freshness of zesty Bergamot, Yuzu and Nashi Pear, this scent’s vibrancy is bright and clear with added bursts of Gardenia, Jasmin and Ylang-Ylang. Like the brand’s many other fragrances, Secret Gardenia offers a moment of sensory immersion for the wearer to reflect and create the opportunity for an act of self-love for all (How dreamy does that sound?) Travelling this summer and not willing to spare your self-care? Miller Harris has got you covered with the collection’s 14ml portable travel-sized products!
