The 'What's New' and 'Just-in' sections to any online beauty haven are my most visited and to say I don't refresh those pages on a daily basis would be a little bit of a lie. As of lately there seems to have been some pretty awesome looking launches landed - I've had a hunt about and rounded-up a bunch of some of the best brand-spanking new beauty releases. Best of all, everything you see above is cruelty free and so following my Five Steps to Cruelty Free post, should lend you a helping hand if you're making the transition to re-stocking your stash, or to simply introduce you to some new skin, hair and home-fragrance brands...
Nude Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash - £38, Space NK - My hand is firmly in the air as a Nude Skincare fan and this has me rather excited - it sounds very much like the Indeed Labs Powder Facial Exfoliator in the way that it's a powder you activate with water as a weekly exfoliating treatment. Considering it's a brand new launch and has already received over 10 almost full-star reviews, I've got a feeling this'll be something good.
Drops of Youth Range - The Body Shop, £14 - £25 - I never got around to road testing this range when it first landed on shelves but it's gone down so well that TBS have repackaged the line and added two new products to it; The Youth Essence-Lotion sounds like no other, a gel-to-water liquid which is recommended post-cleanse - I'm taking that as a hydrating toner then. Essentially, it would be followed by the Youth Cream, an air-whipped, velvet-like moisturiser which promises to leave skin smooth and supple. I like.
Lime & Bay Candle - The White Company, £20 - £55 - The fresh and citrus Verviene range sits by my sink side, and happens to be one of my favourite scents from TWC so if this one comes anything close, we're onto a winner. Out for spring, Lime & Bay is a vibrant fragrance, a fusion of fruity mandarin, grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime, laced with ginger and bay leaves, and is finished with warm notes of patchouli. It currently only extends to home fragrance, including a large three-wick candle as well as the single one.
Grounded Body Scrub - Boots, £15 - Available in three scents, grapefruit, chocolate orange and coconut, these head-to-toe exfoliators are made with ground coffee, brown sugar and Himalayan salts which buff away dry, flaky skin to reveal smooth yet hydrated results. It sounds likes my kinda pamper product and seeing as I'm no longer able to devour a Terry's, the chocolate orange scent would be my jam and I totally wouldn't mind walking around whiffing of one.
Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser & Moisturising Mask Duo - Cult Beauty, £98.25 - Not to be confused with new product launches, but CB have recently teamed this Tata pair up for a total saving of 25% (RRP £131). I've had nothing but good experiences with TH's masks, this moisturising number delivering super soft results, and I've heard incredible things about the oil cleanser too, which breaks down dirt and makeup in an instant - the two matched up make for the perfect winter skincare partners.
Zoeva Spectrum - Beauty Bay, £15 - £28.50 - The Spectrum collection features 3 blush palettes in Pink, Coral and Nude hues, and three eyeshadow palettes in Nude, Cool and Warm tones. I'm yet to add any Zoeva brushes to my stash, let alone dip into their cosmetics line so I'm thinking this would be a good place to begin - the Nude Eyeshadow Palette really is all kinds of beautiful.
Perricone MD DMAE Firming Pads - Cult Beauty, £53 - My cupboard consists of most of Dr P's range, but never before has he released pre-soaked skincare pads, so I'm pretty excited for this product. Enriched with the PMD signature ingredient, DMAE, these post-cleanse toning pads tighten, improve texture and tackle fine lines and wrinkles in an instant sweep.
Becca Champagne Gold Perfecting Duo - Cult Beauty, £52 - Worth a whopping £70, the Champagne Gold Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector with geometric embossing is designed to blur visible imperfections and grant the skin a backlit lustre. It's been paired up with this limited edition gold One Perfecting Brush which swipes on your highlight in all the right places and works with not only powder, but liquid and cream products too.
