7 New Beauty Products To Try Now: February 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. Am I right?
Welcome to What’s New Now – a 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.
Clarins Gentle Foaming Hydrating Cleanser
One of seven (!) new cleansers and three new toners from iconic French skincare brand Clarins, the Gentle Foaming Hydrating Cleanser will have your skin feeling fresh and hydrated in no time. Formulated with Alpine Herbs and Aloe Vera extract to preserve the balance of the skin’s microbiota, the cleanser leaves skin plump, clean and ready for your toner.
SkinCeuticals CUSTOM D.O.S.E.
If you’re anything like us and love personalisation, then the newest SkinCeuticals offering, CUSTOM D.O.S.E, is likely to become your next addiction. The service sees you meet with a SkinCeuticals doctor who determines your individual needs and then prescribes and formulates your custom serum in just 10 minutes. Selecting from over 250 skincare ingredient combinations, the personalised serum will have you glowing in no time.
Ouai Fine To Medium Hair Treatment Masque
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Ouai here at Gritty Pretty (have you listened to our podcast with founder Jen Atkin herself?) – this product may have just made our obsession unhealthy (well, almost). The new treatment masque is formulated to instantly restore, hydrate and strengthen fine to medium hair types without weighing the hair down. How? With shea butter, panthenol and hydrolyzed keratin, the pot of goodness can moisturise and balance at the same time. Genius!
First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub With 10% AHA
For smooth, silky, borderline supermodel skin look no further than the KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub from First Aid Beauty. This clean body scrub combines chemical and physical exfoliation to sweep away dry skin, buff rough patches and reveal your healthiest, most even skin underneath. With glycolic and lactic acids to gently promote cell turnover, this tube of goodness will have you glowing in no time.
NARS Claudette Range
No one does limited edition quite like NARS — and their new Claudette range is no different. Complete with an eyeshadow palette, blush duos and limited edition shades of their cult Audacious lipstick, this makeup collection is one for the ages. An ode to the 70s and inspired by Francois Nars’ mother and muse, the products are built to provide that trademark NARS look with a dash of nostalgia.
Ere Perez Argan Brow Hero
Checking off the three t’s (tint, tame and thicken) with ease, the new Ere Perez Argan Brow Hero is Cara Delevigne brows in a bottle. Containing vegan fibres to boost fullness and add volume and argan oil to condition and hydrate, this all-rounder is on the fast track to enter the beauty product hall of fame.
CHANEL Le Lion De Chanel
Created to embody Gabrielle Chanel’s astrological sign, Chanel Les Exclusif’s newest fragrance, Le Lion, is a daring and powerful foray for the brand. With ambery and leather notes of labdanum and patchouli softened by the warmth of vanilla, bergamot and lemon, the fragrance nails the balance of sensuality and lightness. Add a red lip and windswept hair and you’re practically French!
