Gucci Flora Gorgeous Magnolia Eau de Parfum
The latest addition to the Flora collection, this creation is built around magnolia alba, an ancient and rare plant. Its fruity, floral sweetness is enhanced by dewberry accord and balanced by a clary sage-like edge. Patchouli essence offers a subtly earthy and leathery aroma. Coconut accord delivers an irresistible vanilla freshness and Jasmine Sambac Absolute oil lends warmth that comes together with a mellowing trail of musks.
Fan Fest Mascara
Looking for a volumising mascara to add to your beauty routine? Benefit’s new lash offering gives lashes a fanned effect and amplifies volume, providing a fuller look. The wand features a full-flex fibre brush, which lifts lashes from root to tip and reaches from corner to corner, coating each individual strand. Formulated with provitamin B5 and cranberry extract, Fan Fest conditions and nourishes, while rice wax separates lashes. It’s water-resistant and humidity-proof, perfect for hot weather.
Traceless Mineral SPF 30
Skipping sunscreen especially during the summer is unforgiveable. In the long run, your skin will pay the price. Many shy away from sunscreen as it typically makes skin greasy and leaves a white cast. Beauty Pie’s delicate, non-greasy formula sits invisibly on the skin. It’s infused with nourishing argan oil, soothing niacinamide and powerful antioxidants, which protect against environmental damage, leaving skin visibly soft, supple and glowy.
The Face Jelly
Cream-based moisturisers are more suited for the winter when you don’t sweat a lot and also need more hydration. The hot months call for gel consistencies, like The Face Jelly, a light-weight, water-based moisturiser which glides onto your skin, instantly cooling and refreshing. Hyaluronic acid plumps, peptides hydrate and support collagen production and chlorophyll, that’s rich in antioxidants and Vitamins C, A and E, nourishes while also lending the product an earthy green colour.
#FAUXFILTER Colour Corrector
Derived from Huda Beauty’s #FauxFilter Concealer formula, this creamy corrector is comfortable to wear and blends seamlessly. It balances any discolouration including dark under eyes and brightens with a sheen, while offering just the right amount of coverage. Crease-, sweat- and transfer-proof, it’s infused with vitamin C and niacinamide that soften pigmentation. The #FAUXFILTER corrector is available in five shades, suitable for a variety of skin tones.
Luna Rossa Ocean Eau de Parfum
More intense than the Luna Rossa Ocean eau de toilette, the eau de parfum has top notes of grapefruit sublimated by the presence of fresh, spicy juniper berry and peppery elemi essence. Sage forms the heart, offering a warm amber note, revealing lavender and honey-like facets. The scent’s signature creamy iris accord is awakened by frankincense, which is augmented by elemi and amber wood accord. Haitian vetiver heart informs the base, patchouli offers light, smoky notes and vanilla bean accord rounds off the fragrance.
Le Domaine, co-founded by Brad Pitt, has released a serum formulated with hydrating and soothing grape water. Offering complexion-perfecting and skin-beautifying properties, it also contains hyaluronic acids that have wrinkle-smoothing and moisturising effects, providing global antiageing efficacy. Having an ultra-silky texture, it’s easily absorbed, leaving the skin intensely plumped up, smoother and firmer. The bottle cap, made from repurposed grape barrels, offers a classy, minimalist touch.
The Rewild Body Block
This limited-edition soap bar is a collaboration between Haeckels – a skincare and fragrance company – Pangaia – a fashion brand – and C16 Biosciences – they create alternative solutions to palm oil and palm-derived ingredients. Nourishing and restorative, it’s suitable for both hand and body and has deep cleansing properties. The light smoky scent and creamy texture offer an earthy touch. Bladderwrack seaweed extract offers anti-inflammatory properties and squalane keeps skin supple.
The Eye Patches
Augustinus Bader have dropped their first-ever eye patches, which hydrate, brighten and smoothen, while reducing the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles. Packed with natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and other powerful ingredients, the brand’s patented TFC8 technology optimises the skin’s natural renewal. The eye patches also help to calm redness and irritation and energise and rejuvenate the skin.
