Women’s Month has come to an end and, as usual, there has been no shortage of fabulous make-up and skincare spoils landing on our desks. Here is our August beauty haul, featuring 10 of our favourites:
1. Bulgari Goldea Roman Night Absolute EDP
Liked the first one? Then you are bound to like the most recent take on this intoxicating fragrance. With notes of plum, orange blossom, jasmine and vanilla, this scent lives up to its description as the embodiment of sensuality.
2. REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic
As the name suggests, this daily tonic will make your skin glow. It contains lactic acid and salicin which work together to resurface the skin, minimise pores, correct the texture and brighten your complexion.
3. Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Day Cream
Is your skin starting to look a bit lacklustre? It happens. And that’s what this facial cream for. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as smoothes the complexion, making it soft and radiant.
4. Revlon Balm Stain
For a lip colour that not only suits you perfectly but is also glittery and gorgeous, then look no further than this new release from Revlon. On application the colour adapts to your pH so you get a pretty, personalised shade.
5. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex
If it’s true that our eyes are the window to the soul, then you want your peepers to look perfect. And they can if you start using this new eye cream, which gets to work overnight for a rejuvenated eye area come morning.
6. GUCCI Bloom Nettare Di Fiori
Loved the original but looking for something a bit more mysterious? Then this new variety to join the Gucci Bloom family has your name all over it. It has a combination of woody and floral notes, with ginger being the standout.
7. The Body Shop Mint Mattifying Face Mist
We love options and, with the launch of their new range of facial mists, The Body Shop has given us five. Each one tackles a specific skincare concern, ranging from dullness, to irritated and even oily skin.
8. CHANEL LE LIFT Firming Anti-Wrinkle Crème
This gem takes personalised skincare to a whole new level. This cream actually adapts to the background of your skin using smart technology, which means that you get targeted treatment that is perfect for you. Genius!
9. Garnier Soothing Botanical Cleansing Milk with Rose Floral Water
Rosewater has been a skincare staple for many for a long time because of its ability to soothe even the most sensitive of skin. The new range from Garnier contains this wonder ingredient which is gentle, effective and great-smelling.
10. OPI Gel Break Colour
Gel manicures are great but, like most things, they should really be done in moderation. But not to worry, because this new product from OPI is perfect to wear between manis and helps to keep your nails in tip-top condition.
