From new launches to our classic investments, we reveal our favourite beauty buys of the month…
BENEFIT THE POREFESSIONAL INSTANT WIPEOUT MASKS
We’ve always loved Benefit’s Porefessional primer for keeping shine at bay and now their new wipeout masks will really tackle your complexion woes. These fabric textured masks exfoliate and remove impurities, clearing out pores and leaving skin tightened and refined.
NAILS INC COCONUT BRIGHTS GEL EFFECT COLLECTION
Say goodbye to chipped nails with these gel effect formulas from Nails Inc. Giving talons the same results as a gel mani in a salon, your digits will be left with a hue that lasts longer and a gorgeous, glossy finish.
LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER ANTI BACTERIAL SELF CLEANING BRUSH SET
Washing make-up brushes can be pretty time-consuming so we love these self-cleaning tools from Look Fantastic. Featuring anti-microbial technology, it ensures each brush is kept super hygienic. The set includes a large multi-tasking brush, one round foundation brush, an eye shading brush and defining lip brush. Better still, 12% proceeds go to the cancer charity Look Good Feel Better, which supports women dealing with the visible side effects of cancer treatment.
ELIZABETH ARDEN 8 HOURS MIRACLE OIL
Elizabeth Arden’s classic eight hour cream now comes in oil form and it’s just as good as the original. Enriched with Tsubaki oil, this multi-tasker will soothe red skin, de-frizz locks and deliver a radiant complexion.

Protect and hydrate your skin with this multi-tasker from Garnier. As well as providing 24-hour hydration, it uses amla and pomegranate as antioxidants to the skin and acts as a UVA/UVB protector.

Leaving skin smelling divine and feeling soft, we’re obsessed with this luxe body oil. Neroli and white orchid notes are combined to create an irresistible scent and seriously hydrate your skin.
