10 New Beauty Products To Try Right Now: May 2021
The latest and greatest beauty products to hit the shelves—and why they warrant an ‘add to cart’.
The beauty of, well, beauty products is that they only demand a short-term commitment. No matter the product—be it a shampoo, serum, eye cream or foundation—eventually, it will run out. The plus side? It’s the perfect opportunity to try something new.
What’s that saying? There’s really no time like the present… or something like that. Surely, we can’t be the only ones who feel like a brand new person after spritzing on a new scent or applying a swipe of lipstick?
Welcome to What’s New Now—our monthly round-up of the latest and greatest products to hit the shelves. Whether you’re searching for a few hints to drop, a gift for your best girlfriend or just want to try something that you haven’t before, you will find everything you need right here.
M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Radiance Face & Body Sheer Radiant Foundation
For the perfect your-skin-but-better base, M.A.C’s new Studio Radiance Face & Body Sheer Radiant Foundation is for you. The ultra-lightweight and waterproof formula provides sheer (but buildable) coverage with a radiant finish. Perfect for an everyday, fresh-faced look, this foundation feels like nothing on the skin.
Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot
We love a two-in-one product, so you can imagine our excitement at Ere Perez’s Carrot Colour Pot. This cream lip and cheek balm comes in five shades and with a mirrored lid for ease of on-the-go touch ups. As the name suggests, the inclusion of carrot (which is full of antioxidants) within the formula also helps to leave the skin soft and hydrated.
Charlotte Tilbury Look Of Love Instant Look In A Palette
When convenience and quality collide — Charlotte Tilbury’s new Look Of Love Instant Look Palette is your one stop makeup shop. This seven shade palette contains three eyeshadow shades, a bronzer, a highlighter, a blush and a face powder to help you nail a makeup look and streamline your makeup bag at the same time.
Gucci Rouge De Beauté Brilliant
Gucci’s newest lip product, the Rouge De Beauté Brilliant is the ultimate hybrid formula. Finding the middle ground between a sheer and a satin lipstick, this bad boy combines black rose, peony and jojoba seed oils to deliver 24 hours of moisture in one swipe.
Sol Janeiro Dry Shampoo
Stepping out of their comfort zone (body care) and into the hair care realm, Sol Janeiro’s new Dry Shampoo is a gold star student. This oil-absorbing and refreshing formula contains the hero ingredient Brazilian Kaolin Clay to detoxify and eliminate impurities while helping to soothe the scalp. It’s also scented with the iconic (and delicious) Cheirosa ‘92 fragrance.
Byredo Open Sky
A new limited edition fragrance from Byredo, Open Sky will bring back a flood of travel memories. Created based on the sensuality and freedom that travel brings with it, this scent finds it’s uniqueness through notes of pomelo, hemp leaves, spicy black pepper, palo santo and vetiver.
Jeuneora ThemGenes Daily Resculpting Serum
When the selling points are firming, lifting and contouring, the product is a shoo-in for our shopping carts. Jeuneora’s ThemGenes serum contains peptides, flavonoids, antioxidants and amino acids to help reduce the signs of ageing, hydrate the skin and minimise fine lines. Talk about a multi-tasker.
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Ageing Serum 2.0
The latest iteration of Elizabeth Arden’s heritage serum, Prevage Anti-Ageing 2.0 contains four times (!) the antioxidant power of the original.

Glowing skin is on your horizon.
Bear Peace Essential Daily Facial Cleanser
The perfect cleanser for those of us who crave a clear complexion but fall on the more sensitive side of the skin spectrum, Bear’s Essential Daily Cleanser is a goodie. Containing Australian kaolin clay to gently purify the skin, the creamy cleanser is also filled with do-good ingredients to help nourish and lock in moisture. Oh, and it’s certified organic! Winning.
Summer Fridays Summer Skin Nourishing Body Lotion
When Summer Fridays releases a new product, we pay attention. Hence our excitement for their latest launch, the Skin Nourishing Body Lotion. Scented with coconut, vanilla blossom and almond, this body cream works to nourish the skin while providing a powder-smooth finish. With ceramides to help repair the skin’s natural barrier, this lotion ticks both of our body care boxes: fragrance and efficacy.
