Every week we get sent exciting new products from the various cosmetic and skincare houses so that we can let you, our readers, know what’s hot and happening in the beauty world. Here are our top picks that landed on our desks in June.
Nivea Oil In Lotion
Nivea is one of those brands that has been around for ages and one that we totally trust when it comes to keeping our skin in good condition. Their latest offerings are these two lotions, Cherry Blossom & Jojoba oil and Vanilla & Almond oil, provide 24-hour deep moisture as well as a lush scent, so that you can say goodbye to dry, flaky skin while smelling great, too.
Clarins 4-Colour-All-in-One Pen for Eyes & Lips
Do you remember those pens we all loved as kids that had four colours in one? Well *nostalgia alert* – this make-up pen is exactly like that! It contains 4 products, namely a black, blue and brown eyeliner, as well as a versatile nude lip liner. We’re all about multi-purpose products, so this one is definitely a win (and pretty fun to play with, too).
Bvlgari Goldea – The Roman Night EDP
A couple of weeks ago our beauty ed, Ncumisa, got to go to a party thrown in honour of the release of this fragrance, and, after having smelled it, it is definitely worth celebrating. Bvlgari has done it again with the scent, which has both floral and woody notes, and it is both sexy and sophisticated, and it has landed a spot on all of our wish lists.
Charwhite Natural Teeth Whitener
Everyone wants whiter teeth, but having it done professionally costs a fortune, and home whitening kits can serious damage your teeth with prolonged use. Charwhite, which is black charcoal powder, might look terrifying, but, if you can put your hesitations aside, it works like a charm, because it exfoliates your teeth safely and naturally removing unsightly stains. Say cheese!
L’Occitane Petal Cleansing Oil
It’s safe to say that by now most people have gotten used to the idea that oils can actually be a great way to clean your skin. This new facial cleansing oil, which is part of the Piovoine Sublime range, contains peony petals and extracts and not only effectively removes make-up and cleans the face, but improves your complexion, too. Get ready to radiate!
ghd air ® Pink Blush Professional Hairdryer
The thought of having to head outside with wet post-shower hair in this cold weather is chilling, in every sense of the word, so a hairdryer is essential. This sexy number is the latest release from trusted haircare pros ghd, and has high-pressure airflow which lessens your drying time, as well as different temperature settings and advanced ionic technology to ensure a perfect, sleek finish. And since it’s good enough for hairstylists, it’s certainly good enough for us.
