Here are some of our favourite new hair and beauty discoveries this month
Retouching powder, £27
Using plant-based ingredients and natural mineral powders to help soothe and calm skin while absorbing excess surface oils to reduce shine, Bobbi Brown’s legendary corrective powders have been given an updated look. With a full spectrum of colour-correcting shades, they help brighten and even out skin tone and discolourations, plus they invisibly diminish the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, redness and other imperfections while giving skin an airbrushed look. Flawless skin will be yours in just a few sweeps!
Bath oil travel set, £16
So that you can take a relaxing bath wherever you go, Olverum has released a travel set with three 15ml oils inside – perfect for giving as a gift, or, keeping all to yourself. Each contains ten pure essential oils, which combine to ease stress and relax tension in both mind and body, bringing you back to your complete and natural self. Grab a glass of wine and a good book, run a bath and relax, whether you’re home or away.
barePRO performance wear powder foundation, £27
This amazing new foundation from bareMinerals not only gives you full coverage and lasts for 12 hours, but it’s also 90% vitamins and minerals, and lets your skin breathe. Ideal for those who don’t have hours to spend applying makeup in the mornings, this foundation is a makeup bag must-have, and because it lasts all day you won’t even need to reapply.

Velvet lip glide, £22
This new liquid lipstick gives great coverage, glides on effortlessly and comes in a gorgeous array of colours. Laced with NARS’ Oil Infusion Complex, the lip glide has the coverage of a lipstick with the fluidity of a gloss, and is nourishing too once applied, they have a semi-matte finish and last for ages on the lips. From pale pinks to ravishing reds, the only problem you’ll have is deciding which one to buy first.
Naked skin colour correcting fluid, £17.50
Hide a multitude of sins with Urban Decay’s new range of colour correcting products. With a range of shades to target different beauty problems such as redness and dark spots, this new collection has something to help everyone. The lightweight formula instantly colour-corrects and blurs flaws, leaving skin illuminated and bright, and vitamin C and vitamin E condition and protect the skin too. Easy to apply and long lasting, we’re a little bit in love with these.
No scent no colour shampoo, £21
To tie in with Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Philip Kingsley are donating 50p from every bottle of this shampoo to charity. This fantastic product helps men and women who are undergoing treatment for cancer by being gentle enough to use on their scalp, yet also works well. This specific formula is hypoallergenic and contains no parabens, sulfates, scents, added colours or lathering agents.
Geranium and walnut hand cream, £22
This delicious scent originally launched in a body scrub last year, but from this month it’s now available in a rich and moisturising hand cream too. Developed to complement every Jo Malone fragrance (and there are a lot of them)! this product is delicately scented with apricot kernel oil, while crisp, vibrant geranium is layered with the warmth of walnut. This is our new favourite indulgence for our hands, and it’s perfect for the colder days ahead.
Eye lift firming treatment, £45
The first in the Murad Professional collection, this eye treatment is designed to deliver younger looking eyes in an instant, using surface-filling spheres to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and deliver filler-like results. Just apply under the eye, pop on two eye pads and wait ten minutes. Not only do you have time to relax, at the end you’ll also be left with a fresher look.
