8 Beauty Products Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of This Month: March 2022

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

“Forget soft, delicate roses Nancy Mae would like–this warm, spicy rose fragrance is rose flesh, petals and thorns all in one. Tom Ford Rose Prick is a wild bouquet of beautiful breeds, a trilogy of Rose de Mai, Turkish and Bulgarian roses. Inspired by Tom Ford’s own private rose garden, all I can say is this warm floral fragrance isn’t for the fainthearted wearer. It’s a sultry, almost-dirty rose fragrance that only the bold can wear.”

Beauty Director & Executive Editor

“The original and the best. This Klorane Dry Shampoo is so good, it was rumoured to be Karl Lagerfeld’s favourite. Now, if that wasn’t a man known for his hair, I don’t know who is! This dry shampoo is known for removing oil without leaving behind a gritty feeling or any powdery build-up. It’s my go-to for extending the life of a blow dry.”

Sue Hoffman

Strategic Partnerships Director

“Even the scent of Omorovicza’s Cushioning Day Cream is dreamy…I’d say almost marshmallow-y. I learnt quickly that a little goes a long way but it absorbs easily and quickly into your skin. The texture is light and velvety and a very welcome addition to my morning routine. The only thing missing to make this the perfect day cream is SPF!”

 

Rose Garnett

Beauty Editor

“The terms ‘hydrating’ and ‘clay mask’ are rarely found in the same sentence, but the Lesse Bioactive Mask is the exception. A soothing, hydrating and clarifying mask developed for sensitive and acne-prone skin, this formula is unrivalled in deeply cleaning the skin while providing nourishment. With organic flame tree the power ingredient, the mask is rich in vitamin C to protect the skin against environmental aggressors and keep your complexion looking (and feeling) its best.”

Nicola Sevitt

Special Projects Producer

“I can now truly appreciate the inclusion of an essence in one’s beauty routine. The Hourglass Equilibrium Restoring Essence is lightweight, gentle and I can honestly say it leaves my skin feeling super hydrated. I love that it’s cruelty-free, sulphate-, paraben- and alcohol-free and is gentle on my sensitive skin. After applying a small amount of the product between my fingers, I firmly press it into my skin before applying my moisturiser and CC cream. It elevates my other skincare products and provides a perfect base for makeup. Yes, it is indeed one more step in my routine, but who can turn down that extra hydration factor? In case you can’t tell, I’m sold.”

Sarah Daly

Art Director

“I have a confession to make: I’m still living the lazy girl lockdown life when it comes to my hair. Gone are the days of a ‘do’, let alone a blow dry. So, when I discovered the R+Co Air Dry Creme I realised it suited my new carefree (lazy) hair routine to a tee. Making my hair look like a more refined version of itself, frizz was gone, hair softer and smoother. No blow drying, no heating, and suits all hair types. Yes please!”

“Loving the peachy glow that the McoBeauty Highlight And Glow Wand creates! Its creamy texture blends out seamlessly and is the perfect go-to for those WFH days when you need a subtle glow up ahead of the day’s zoom calls!”

Head of Partnerships

“I am obsessed with how glossy and black the Lancome Hypnose Mascara is. The curved wand is so comfortable to hold in the hand and the application provides great length and volume to really open the eyes up.”
