We're busy distracting ourselves with pretty things.
Here we are, another Monday and another day trying to keep ourselves sane during a pandemic. It’s a bit weird to say we’re kind of getting used to it at this stage, it’s like 2020 is just a year of one shock after another, nothing is really for certain. But one thing we can always count on is our favourite beauty brands pulling it out of the bag and bringing us some gorgeous products. A bit of normality and luxury that we can all lean on to make ourselves feel that little bit better.
So, without further ado, here are some stunning beauty bits that we’ve been adding to our online baskets lately – as well as some brand new products too.
It’s always great to support Irish brands, but Aimee Connolly makes it so easy with every launch because each product looks amazing. The latest wonder product from Sculpted by Aimee is the Hydrate and Hold spray. A hydrating and setting spray in one mist, it leaves a naturally radiant finish on your skin, while keeping your skin hydrated and your makeup in place all day long. It’s packed with hyaluronic acid for hydration, lemon extract to control the skin’s oils and Centella Asiatica extracts to strengthen skin barriers and prevent ageing. Honestly, it’s a stunning product to give your skin the boost that it needs.
Already it’s proving its popularity, being sold out on Cloud 10 Beauty! If you fancy trying it out, it’s available now where you usually buy your Sculpted by Aimee products for €20.
A brand new tan is always exciting, but I’m a self-confessed tan addict so I may be slightly biased. When you’re looking for a gorge tan, Bondi Sands is one of the most reliable brands out there. And now, they’ve announced the launch of their darkest tan yet, Aero Ultra Dark.
The lightweight Aero formula promises to feel featherlight, be touch-dry in seconds and give you a stunning, golden tan. The Bondi Sands Aero formula contains dual-action tanning actives to achieve a deep and long-lasting colour. Enriched with Vitamin E and Jojoba, both known to assist in skin moisturisation, Aero Ultra Dark also intensely hydrates and nourishes, resulting in prolonged tan longevity. Music to my ears, honestly.
Available exclusively on Cloud10 Beauty for the month of July, check it out right here.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been one whole year since the stunning Skingredients range first came into our lives, and basically changed our skin for the better. Now that it’s one year old, if you haven’t treated yourself to any of the range, now is the time to do it. The range consists of The Core 4, the basis of any Skingredients skincare recipe, with each product filled to the brim with vitamins, fats, fruit, veg and botanical extracts for glowing, healthy skin.
Plus, their two Mix + Match products which allow you to turbocharge and customise your Skingredients recipe for that oomph and to target your specific skin concerns. Check out the range for yourself on skingredients.com.
I don’t know about you, but Kevyn Aucoin products always feel like such a treat to me. This stunning primer from Kevyn Aucoin has been a firm favourite amongst beauty fans for years, and the much-loved original formula is now available in new travel-friendly packaging. This weightless, hydrating primer is infused with hyaluronic acid (we all know how good hyaluronic is at this stage) to perfect and minimise pores while creating a smooth base for your makeup.
Available now, from Space NK online. Time to treat yourself?
Codex is another relatively new brand, having been around for just over a year. But in that year, they’ve changed the beauty scene. A sustainable skincare brand that minimizes the environmental impact of every aspect of their operation, from the actual packaging to the ingredients themselves. The best part? The products are genuinely gorgeous. Just to name a couple, the Bia Day Cream is a lightweight formula that is clinically proven to improve skin hydration, while the cooling and brightening eye gel that is clinically proven to reduce under-eye puffiness and dark circles.
So you can improve your skin without feeling guilty towards the environment, it’s a win-win. Check it out for yourself right here.
