Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Genius Brow Serum

This is one of Anastasia Beverly Hills‘ biggest launches in recent years: a multi-benefit brow serum that noticeably improves hair texture, manageability and encourages the appearance of fuller-looking brows. Working on the theory that for great brows we should really be treating them with the same level of TLC as the hair on our head, it contains: Red Clover Extract, a peptide that helps protect against breakage; Korean Red Ginseng to encourage growth, Panthenol to smooth and soften hairs; Biotin to coat hairs and create fuller looking brows; and Castor oil to condition and nourish.

Ultra Violette Daydream Screen SPF50 Tinted Veil

From Australian sunscreen experts Ultra Violette comes Daydream Screen, the latest addition to their fabulous SPF range (spoiler alert: we love everything we’ve tried so far). A tinted serum with the added benefit of SPF 50, you can build it from the sheerest, most natural of finishes to medium coverage, and its oil-free formula means you don’t have to worry about having to powder every half hour. Easy to apply and  creating a radiant, lightly perfected complexion, it’s pretty much everything we want in an everyday base.

Pai Century Flower Lotus & Hyaluronic Acid Barrier Defence Mist

If you swore by Pai’s Century Flower Tonic, do check out its new-and-improved formula in the form of this skin barrier-protecting mist. Loaded with complexion-quenching lotus flower water and hyaluronic acid, it’s designed to combat sensitivity and irritation, restoring the skin moisture barrier and nourishing the oh-so-important microbiome for a more soothed and hydrated complexion.

Mortar & Milk PHA Barrier Repair Serum
Mortar & Milk

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to have a treatment with Pamela Marshall from Mortar & Milk, it’s likely you’ll have come away sharing her love of PHAs, the ultra-gentle acid exfoliants that help gently remove dead skin cells to leave skin looking glowier and feeling lusciously soft and hydrated. So it was of little surprise (but with much excitement) that Mortar & Milk’s first ever product is a homage to PHAs. Years in the making, Pamela has poured her extensive knowledge of product formulation combined with what she has found actually works from her years of treating clients and it’s paid off – the unscented serum is already getting rave reviews – skin is left feeling renewed, hydrated and visibly glowing.

Fenty Skin Fat Water Hydrating Milky Toner Essence

First Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty and then Fenty Skin – with both ranges becoming sell-out sensations, and for good reason: this isn’t just another celebrity beauty line that’s all promise – these products actually deliver too. One of their core products that’s often sold out is Fat Water, a serum/toner hybrid that fans say makes pores smaller and leaves skin with a silky, hydrated finish. So it was with palpable excitement that they announced a new iteration. Its new partner in crime, like the original, aims to provide all of the benefits of a toner but offer a big dose of hydration thanks to Hyaluronic Acid and Mineral PCAs (both of which bind to moisture and help protect the skin’s barrier). But get in quick, the noise around this product means it’s sure to be in tight supply.
