18 New Beauty Products to Help You Shimmer, Shine & Sparkle This Summer Ellie Thompson 28 June, 2018 Fashion & Beauty, Living The latest beauty products I’ve seen this month are neatly collected here in my latest column. The summer heat can be harsh on the skin, so there’s a strong focus on skin health and products that seek to rejuvenate, heal and nourish. 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation, PÜR If you’re looking for great but lightweight coverage this no-mess mineral make-up with built-in skincare ingredients is worth a punt. Pür are experts at combining natural ingredients with skincare technology to correct, prevent and produce radiant results. Holo, Hero Compact Styler, Tangle Teezer Popular new brand Tangle Teezer have launched a new Compact Styler detangling hairbrush. This is a must-have item in the handbag, and its multi-dimensional iridescent hues and rainbow shifting qualities make it super pretty to look at too. Head & Hair Heal Shampoo and Conditioner, Maria Nila I’ve been using the vegan Heal shampoo and conditioner for the past two weeks. It’s an anti–inflammatory and hair growth stimulating shampoo. I’m in love with the smell – I’m always tempted to wash all over with it in the hope that the fragrance will exude from me all day long, although remembering that it’s a hair growth stimulating product, perhaps not such a good idea. Ha! The shampoo is brilliant at getting a good lathe-up from a very small amount. The conditioner successfully works on my tangles, which let’s face – is the true test of any haircare product. Finish & Dry Shampoo, Maria Nila Maria Nila’s dry shampoo is a powder spray that instantly freshens up greasy hair. It’s also great at adding volume to fine hair. The product is sulphate & paraben free and contains 100% vegan ingredients. Style & Finish Finishing Spray, Maria Nila A 100% vegan finish spray is gentle yet strong, and easy to brush out. Maria Nila’s clever Colour Guard Complex protects against UV-rays and free radicals. Luxurious Natural Skin Care, JK7 A fabulous product to pack for your travels. It’s an all-in-one hair and body shampoo made from organic herbs which cleanses and leaves a moisturising effect. It’s highly concentrated, hypo-allergenic and alkaline free. Organic Facial Oil, SARAH LONDON This organic oil is 99% vegan, and its flavours include organic sweet almond, organic apricot, organic pumpkin seed, organic argan, organic Evening Primrose & Vitamin E. It’s packed with great stuff to nourish, balance and hydrate your skin. Sheer Physical Protection, NeoStrata This is a product suitable for all skin types – including those with sensitive skin. Incorporate Sheer Physical Protectio into your daily routine. It’s a light-weight transparent fluid offering a physical broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection with a virtually invisible universal tint. Antioxidant Defense Serum, NeoStrata Another fantastic product by NeoStrata. The Antioxidant Defense Serum protects the skin against premature ageing. It also helps to prevent sun-induced cellular damage. Apply after cleansing to face and neck alone, or under moisturiser or sunscreen. Ziggy Cup, Planet OrganicReported to be he most comfortable and versatile menstrual cup ever! The Ziggy Cup’s flat-fit design fits perfectly, PLUS, it’s the only reusable cup that can be worn during sex. Motionsense Invisible Antibacterial, Sure Deodorant just got clever! Sure’s MotionSense technology releases bursts of fragrance when you need it most. How? Well, after spraying, microcapsules sit on the surface of your skin and when you move, friction breaks the microcapsules and fragrance is released. Et voila! Intuition f.a.b razor, Wilkinson Sword The day has finally arrived. You can now shave backwards and forwards without injury. A fact I didn’t know at 11 years old while brandishing my first Bic in the bath. The Intuition f.a.b. has bi-directional blades: the top blades shave up, and bottom blades shave down. Genius! Argan Liquid Gold Natures Luxury Beauty Oil, ALG Argan Oil contains many nourishing elements that work to improve the condition of the skin. It helps to correct uneven skin tone by hydrating and rejuvenating. This cold-pressed organic Argan Oil is packed with healing and moisturising qualities – a fab product to look after your skin during the summer months and beyond. Bubble Purifying + Charcoal Face Mask Sheet, Skin Republic If you’re looking for the ultimate face mask – you’ve found it. Skin Republic’s purifying bubble face mask sheet is made from Activated Charcoal.

Vitamins C and B3, Coffee Bean and Green Tea brighten dark circles and restore radiance to tired looking eyes. Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, Caudalie This is product a lot of people are going nuts for.
