We've tested all the new launches to bring you the best of the best
The life of a beauty addict is rarely dull, thanks to dozens of brand new make-up, skincare and hair products launching almost every week.
New launches usually come with a lot of hype, but at times it’s hard to tell whether that hype is actually warranted. Nobody likes to splash their hard-earned cash on something they then regret buying.
We’ll be bringing you a break down of the best new releases you should be fighting to get your hands on before they sell out (which trust us, they probably will do).
So, what’s good in the world of beauty this month, we hear you ask?
She’s the master behind Jennifer Hudson and Amber Gill’s hair – legendary hair stylist Michelle Sultan has now launched her own line for curly and textured hair, Imbue.

We’re obsessed!
One of our all-time favourite brands for a summer glow, Isle of Paradise is back with two new self-tanning products that also hydrate your skin while your tan develops. There’s a Hyglo serum each for face and body, both are enriched with hero moisturising ingredient hyaluronic acid.

Time to treat yourself? Why not.
The affordable curly hair range the world has been waiting for, for curls kinks and coils, this eight product line-up is a dream come true. Founded by Michelle Sultan, the products are easy to understand and use, free of oil-based silicones, SLS and SLES (sulfates – and smell GREAT. From a gentle cleansing shampoo to a curl defining gel and, my favourite, a thick and restoring mask, this should be on every curly girl's wishlist.
A spanner may have been thrown in the works when it comes to our summer holiday plans, but that doesn't mean you can't surround yourself with the scent of summer. And Other Stories shimmering lotion, with its delicious coconut and caramel scent, at least means you can smell like summer. There's also a delicious body scrub and hair fragrance.
The newest addition to Bvlgari's Omnialandia, Golden Citrine is a sweet fragrance laced with ylang-ylang and jasmine that smells like sunshine. If you've been looking for a new summer fragrance and love sweet florals, this is probably right up your street.
Make the most of your natural texture with ghd's new dryer attachments. Compatible with the ghd Helios dryer, you can now snap up a comb nozzle to lift and style textured and coily hair, a diffuser that's great for curly hair, and a wide nozzle that's great for long and thick hair.
Say goodbye to mask acne with Weleda’s purifying cleanser, specifically formulated for blemish prone or oily skin.
Give your legs a touch of sheer coverage with the ultimate leg finisher by way of Legology.
Jules Von Hep's self tanning brand is already one of the most popular in the world, so when he announced two new products, you can bet we got excited. Hyglo is enriched with hyaluronic acid, as well as avocado, chia seed and coconut oil, for an ultra moisturising gradual glow. It's super easy to apply (4-12 drops per body part depending on the level of tan you're after) and your gorgeous glow develops over the hours that follow.
Laura Mercier's new Skin Essentials line is a capsule collection of 10, err, essential skincare products to help you get Laura's signature healthy glow. As well as two different cleansers, a facial oil and lip balm, we're obsessed with the hydrating, plumping and light-reflecting eye cream that instantly brightens the area.
We all love an Aussie skincare brand, especially one that is cruelty-free, heroes aromatherapy and is packed with natural goodness. Created by Ayurveda Practitioner Farida Irani, this powerhouse oil uses Mogra and Ashwagandha to help stimulate cell renewal and collagen production, keeping skin firm. Meanwhile added Indian Rose deeply hydrates and brings back lost radiance.
At a time when our hands are being subject to even more frequent washing, it's all the more important to care for them. Try one of these fun, nourishing hand masks from Le Mini Macaron, which help to regenerate and soften the skin.
This new skincare brand is here to help us embrace our natural skin texture, pores and all. As well as looking fun, these formulas are nice and affordable, and backed by medical and cosmetic doctor Dr Ewoma Ukeleghe. As well as formulas centring vitamin C, retinol and hyaluronic acid, we love Sorbet Skin, a super lightweight gel day moisturiser.
Ah, retinol. The anti-ageing, skin clearing hero. It's unusual to see it in a formula alongside salicylic acid, but Dermalogica has combined the two actives for an overnight clearing treatment that simultaneously works to reduce breakouts, clear skin and, bonus, minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – all in one.
Combining two powerful actives, retinol and bakuchiol, with peptides this is a triple threat against the signs of ageing skin. Retinol helps to smooth wrinkles while bakuchiol boosts its restorative powers, and peptides support your skin's natural collagen stores. Some say three's a crowd, but that's certainly not the case here!
If you loved the original cream palettes, let us introduce you to Rouje Poudre – gorgeous, ultra-rich colours, this time in powder form with matte finish. Smudge on with your finger for a cool girl, lived-in lip.
This is the cream that Kate herself uses in-clinic to soothe the stressed-out and irritated skin of clients after a treatment. It's super gentle, pillowy and fragrance free, and melts in to the skin, strengthening its barrier.
I’m yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love Elasticizer. The pre-wash treatment that was created for Audrey Hepburn (I know), it moisturises and adds bounce like no other. Clever hair-loving ingredients work to flood inside the hair cuticle with moisture, and it's noticeably healthier in feeling after just one use. It's now available in Mayan Vanilla and Orange Blossom, which is so summery I could sing.
Dryness, dullness and dehydration are all very common skin concerns, so a moisturiser packed with peptides and hyaluronic acid is just the ticket. What's more, it's Tata's first refillable container; keep the outer packaging and repurchase inner cartridges when you need a top up.
One of the zingiest, fruitiest scrubs you ever did smell, you'd be forgiven for thinking this Beauty Pie scrub was edible. A blend of essential oils goes into this uplifting number, along with sweet almond oil, vitamin E and Demerera sugar, to help you on your way to super smooth skin.
The fan favourite Transforming Body Lotion is now available in a limited edition rose scent. This new version is gentle and fresh, not sickly-smelling, and has the same great lightweight texture as the original.
You can’t go wrong with a classic red and this one by way of L’Atelier Green is equally chic and rich in colour.
Drunk Elephant has finally launched its long-awaited hair and body line, comprising six products – shampoo, conditioner, scalp scrub, tangle spray, body wash and body lotion. The products do have a very strong, sweet marzipan scent – so if that's not your favourite smell, the good news is it doesn't last on your skin/hair. The body lotion is the product I stuck with; it's not greasy, sinks in nicely and leaves your skin lovely and soft.
