The Marie Claire beauty team brings you the best new launches across skin, hair and make-up
There are so many incredible beauty products and not enough hours in the day. Every week, nay every day, sees the launch of new makeup, skincare, haircare and tools.
However, it’s tricky to know whether you believe the hype in some cases. Nobody likes to splash their hard-earned cash on something they’ll never use and later regret buying.
Which is where I come in. I am lucky enough to see products ahead of them hitting the shops. From the best mascara and best eye cream, to the best moisturiser for dry skin and best purple shampoo, I trial and test it all to see what all the fuss is about.
Each month I bring 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, does happen.) I want you to know all about the best in beauty, so that you can make good, informed choices.

So what new makeup, skincare and haircare products are there this month?
We are super excited to see Glossier’s first foray into the world of retinol, a CBD oil massage roll-on that soothes aching bodies and Augustinus Bader‘s latest skincare must-have. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s new beauty range has finally dropped – YAY. Oh and as we head out of summer, searches for hyperpigmentation treatment has gone up, which is handy as Dr Maryam Zamani has just released her Pigmentation Correcting Ampoules, a seven day intensive brightening regime.

You'd be pushed to find anyone who doesn't have any hyperpigmentation on their skin. Whether you've tackled acne, stayed out in the sun or have skin that's sensitive to changing hormones, chances are you'll start to see dark spots. Clinique's new and improved serum is one of my favourite products for reducing and protecting against discolouration. With it's double dose of brightening molecule it evens the skin tone and soothes irritation.
I've missed Erborian. It's been a while since the Korean-inspired skincare line released a new product. Luckily they've just dropped four new Super Serums. I love the hydrating Bamboo one - hello dry skin saviour. But I'm even more obsessed with the Red Pepper one. It has natural exfoliators in the formula so after using it regularly I noticed my skin was brighter and smoother. Love, love, love.
Everyone know the This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Mist, but let me tell you that that isn't the only great product in the range. The Massage Relief roll-on is used on areas that you might be feeling tense, tight or sore. Roll is over the area, massage it in and let the soothing CBD, magnesium, black pepper and clove ease the knots.
Gosh, I've been so excited about this new beauty range. From the moment I found out it was on the way, I've been waiting patiently by the door for my delivery. My favourite product from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's line? The Brow Renew Enriched Tinted Shaping Gel. It gives just the right amount of bush and just the right amount of hold.
Designed to suit all skin types, this might just be the most user-friendly retinol you'll ever try. Made with 0.5% retinyl sunflowerate (a retinol derivative that's a mix of retinol and fatty acids from sunflower seeds) and stevia leaf extract. The first is a low enough percentage that t makes it super gentle, whilst still yielding slight effects. The second works at improving skin texture and tone. If you're keen for an introductory retinol, this ones for you.
Born from a Tik Tok trend that saw people putting the Isle Of Paradise refill pouches into misting bottles, this Spray Tan Mister is ergonomically designed with a 360° spray nozzle that produces a long, continuous stream of ultra-fine mist that works from all angles. It's the quick and sustainable way to achieve a full body, streak-free glow.
My love for Augustinus Bader skincare knows no bounds. I use the The Cream during the day and The Rich Cream at night. I slather my body in the Body Cream and my lips are super hydrated thanks to the lip balm. So I am all in with the brand's new serum and eye cream launches. I am aware that the price will put some people off, fair enough. But I promise if feel like investing, you won't be disappointed. The Serum in particular is stand out:
