8 Products Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of This Month: May 2021 Edition

What we’re loving, coveting and “borrowing” from the Gritty Pretty beauty cupboard this month.

Eliza Hynd

Head of Partnerships

“I love spritzing the Byredo La Tulipe in the mornings before I head out the door. The freesia scent is heavenly. It’s reminiscent of clean skin after a shower and my favourite scent, fresh bed linen. Feels like spring has sprung!”

Eleanor Pendleton

Founder & Editor-in-Chief

“If you looked up ‘Boujie Blush’ under the dictionary, Rose Hermès would come up.

Crafted in Italy, this perfectly pink powder is embossed with a texture that resembles silk twill. Providing a semi-matte finish, this fine pink powder blush is so heavenly, you almost don’t want to use it. But, oh what a waste it would be if you didn’t. Its ultra-light, pigmented texture allows color intensity to be tailored as desired, softened or asserted, from the most natural to the most sophisticated finish. Sweep it into the apple of your cheeks and you’ll get exactly what I mean!”

Liz Finnigan

Senior Designer

“There are no surprises here: Ultra Violette has a cult following for a reason. So, naturally, I am obsessed with their Supreme Screen SPF50+ Hydrating Skinscreen. Non-greasy, perfect for under makeup and with a lovely scent, sun protection has never looked better.”

Danielle Gay

Beauty Director & Executive Editor

Dior Lip Glow is a staple in any beauty editor’s handbag and I’m just as obsessed as anyone else. This iconic lip balm is known for enhancing the natural colour of your lips, so while it’s not new, Lip Glow has had a glow-up (pun intended) and now comes in three new shades (Cherry 015, Mahogany 020 and Universal Clear 000) so there’s now even more to choose from.”

Special Projects Producer

“As we enter the cooler months, it’s fair to say that we all notice our lips are suddenly more chapped, our hands a little bit dry and rough… but something I always forget about is that the change in season can also take its toll on our hair. At least for me that’s the case, anyone else? I was so pleased to find Oribe’s Gold Lust Transformative Masque on my desk – it’s been an absolute god-send. The mask has a beautiful scent, and works to reverse existing damage and restore moisture, leaving your locks feeling lush, shiny and silky smooth.”

Kate Reeves

Art Director

“An OG product and the gold standard, Alpha-H’s Liquid Gold is a skin saviour. Don’t be too hasty though as overuse can cause irritation. I probably use this beauty every second day but the glow sticks around all week long.”

Sue Hoffman

Brand Partnerships Manager

“I seriously love the Maaemo Fruit Enzyme Refiner! I didn’t know what to expect when I first started using it but after my first trial I was hooked. Not only are the AHA fruit enzymes really effective in lifting dead skin cells, it also ticks a lot of other boxes for me – vegan, Australian owned and made and certified organic. So, if you’re after a natural product that really gives your skin a radiance and a glow, this one is for you.”

Rose Garnett

Beauty Writer

“You all know that I’m a bit of a body care fiend, so you can imagine my excitement at the Paula’s Choice Skin Revealing Body Lotion 10% AHA. Combining active skincare ingredients with their same great body lotion formula, this hard worker will work to moisturise, nourish and exfoliate your skin all at the same time. Supermodel legs await you, my friend.”
