The past month has seen the release of some very exciting, and in some cases, long-awaited beauty releases including revamped old favourites and skincare saviours. We’ve rounded up seven of the best that we’re most excited about — and you will be too. Covering all aspects of beauty, this list includes a bit of everything from haircare to skincare and makeup. Credit cards at the ready because you’re going to want it all!

Caring for blonde hair has never been easier Kérastase has just launched its first Ultra-Violet range, Blond Absolu, to cater to those of us with lightened and highlighted hair. Created with the worries and needs of people with lightened hair in mind, the range hydrates sensitised hair, protects from oxidation and neutralises brassiness and yellow-ish tones to leave you with bright luscious blonde locks.

The first product we are excited about is the Cicaplasme Treatment which is a fortifying heat protecting serum. If you are a blonde who can’t stay away from heat tools and, let’s face it, we are all guilty of this then this is the product for you. Cicaplasme is a leave-in serum that protects hair against heat, damage and even contains UV filters that protect lightened hair from daily oxidation and sun exposure.

The second is an anti-brass blonde perfecting mask that can be used as a luxurious leave-in treatment. The Masque Ultra-Violet contains purple pigment so you can wave bye-bye to off-coloured brassy tones.

Coca Cabana Cream is the newest release by Sol de Janeiro, following on from the cult Bum Bum Cream. Coca Cabana is a hydrating moisturiser with an oil-in-water formula. The cream is extremely moisturising thanks to ingredients like coconut oil and fermented sugar. It also includes native Brazilian ingredients such as antioxidant-rich superfood açaí and nourishing cupuaçu butter. Not only will your skin look and feel amazing afterwards, you’ll also smell good enough to eat! The fragrance is a combination of coconut with a whiff of sweetness thanks to the caramel, toasted praline, marshmallow, and warm vanilla notes. Trust us, the smell will leave your mouth watering.

Clarins has just launched its new My Clarins range that targets a younger audience just starting on their skincare journey. The products contain the best ingredients nature has to offer with 88% of the products being made up of all natural ingredients that are vegan-friendly.

Treat yourself to some TLC with the Relaxing Sleep Mask which is described as a meditation session for your skin yes, please! The mask quenches your skin’s thirst by replenishing moisture lost in your skin throughout the day. Apply the mask at night and wake up with supple, plump and refreshed skin.

We predict Clear Out by My Clarins is going to be a go-to product for those with younger, blemish-prone skin. Simply apply Clear Out to blemishes to help reduce their size and flamed appearance. The formula contains meadowsweet extract and Purslane extract which help reduce the redness of the inflamed area. The perfect product to nip those pesky blemishes in the bud.

The newest release from millennial cult favourite Glossier has beauty lovers frothing. Milky Oil is a waterproof makeup remover which is a hybrid of micellar water and weightless oil. This product gently helps to dissolve makeup without any rubbing or tugging of the skin. Thanks to the addition of Comfrey Root Extract and Pro-Vitamin B5, Milky Oil leaves skin feeling smooth and fresh straight after use with no greasy or sticky residue.

Sunscreen is an essential step in your daytime skincare routine and we know that many women seek an SPF that isn’t noticeable underneath makeup. I mean, we’ve all been there, with sunscreens that leave a white shadow making us look even paler than we are. Thankfully, P20 has launched its first facial sunscreen that was developed specifically to protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays. This product is suited for wearing under your makeup, blending perfectly into the skin so no need to worry about a white or ashy cast.

From the makers of the iconic Touche Éclat Radiant Touch comes a new revelation in beauty — the Touche Éclat High Coverage. This is the product for those of you who loved the lumination that the original provided but would like more coverage. This new release provides high coverage while still looking natural. You can expect natural radiance and high coverage to hide those stubborn dark circles. Plus, with the addition of vitamin E, caffeine and Moroccan calendula extract, it’s the perfect an anti-fatigue product to brighten your complexion. A must-have for busy women who are always on the go.
