The Beauty Hot List > 10 Wonder Products We Love
JAMES READ SLEEP MASK FACE RETINOL £30
We’ve been regularly using this brilliant glow booster for the last couple of weeks, popping it on before bedtime and waking up to a healthy and subtle dose of colour. Cheat the effortless holiday look, when in all honesty, you’ve been chained to your desk, below a blast of air con. James has created what we’ve all wanted for so long – a buildable self-tan, which also includes skincare goodness. There’s retinol inside and hyaluronic acid. Win. Win.
ANYA HINDMARCH WASHING POWDER CANDLE £50
You know that glorious smell of fresh washing that’s been happily hanging in the sunshine all day? Well, here it is, captured in a glossy black jar that’s adorned with the much-loved Anya sticker. Summer candles shouldn’t be heady, which is why Washing Powder is the perfect light and airy fragrance to scent your home. The blend includes delicious watermelon rind, cucumber, honeysuckle and hyacinth.
DISCIPLE BALANCING MIST £12
Oh, how we adore a refreshing facial mist and we’ve officially got a new favourite. Wellness brand, Disciple, has newly arrived on our beauty radar and after trying this divine geranium floral water, we can’t wait to try more from the range. The scent is beautiful and immediately gives life to a dehydrated complexion. Spritz over day-old make-up for a speedy moisture boost and a moment of serenity.
SAINT IRIS ADRIATICA ENERGY CLEANSE £29
Another product we’ve fallen for this month, the divine cleanser from Saint Iris Adriatica. Packed with essential plant oils and fruit enzymes to bring daily hydration and happiness. Looks amazing in your bathroom and smells incredible.
JECCA BLAC PRIDE LIPSTICKS £7
Both vegan and cruelty free, grab the gorgeous coral shade ‘Qween’ in time for Brighton Pride and wear for the rest of the summer months. For each sale, Jecca Blac donates £1 to Switchboard, who provide a support service to the LGBT+ community.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY GLOWGASM PALETTE IN ‘LIGHTGASM’ £60
If you’re a sucker for a shiny new make-up palette, we hear you. When it includes molten highlighters, best teamed with a sundowner? It’s a done deal, thank you very much. Get that glow on your cheeks, brow bone, cupid’s bow, the whole shebang. The bronzer also works on the eyes for flattering warmth and depth. A payday treat, if ever we saw one.
CIENNA ROSE NAIL LACQUER IN ‘OFF THE MARKET’ £9
Finding a nail polish that’s not brimming with nasty chemicals and also ticks the cruelty free and vegan friendly boxes, is no easy task. Thankfully, we’ve discovered Cienna Rose, with over 30 amazing colours to choose from and a formula that contains vitamin E, lemongrass oil and pro vitamin B5 to encourage healthy nails. Hooray!
WESTMAN ATELIER BABY CHEEKS BLUSH STICK £46
Make-up artist to a seriously impressive Hollywood client list, Gucci Westman, has recently launched her own collection, Westman Atelier, on Net-A-Porter and it is to-die-for. If you’re into slick packaging that’s as gorgeous as the product, then you’ll love this small, but perfectly formed range. Our favourite? The Baby Cheeks Blush Sticks.
LUMENE ARCTIC DEW QUENCHING AQUA SERUM £24.90
Searching for a mega hit of hydration? This is it. Lumene has gained a cult following simply because the products really work and (particularly with this serum) provide instant results. Expect relief if your skin has been feeling tight and stressed, with patches of dryness.
ALCHEMY PEPPERMINT HAIR REMEDY £36
For an intensive treatment that packs more punch than your regular hair mask, make the switch to an oil texture for maximum hydration, softness and growing power. This invigorating peppermint blend is like taking your over-styled locks for a five-star spa weekend. Plus, there’s coconut, avocado, almond and castor oils in the mix to work their healing magic. Use as an overnight treatment or as quick fix for frazzled ends.
