7 Beauty Products Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of This Month: August 2021

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

Rationale’s Number 1 Serum is my go-to morning serum—I love the way it makes my skin glow. I apply it before my moisturiser (then follow with makeup) and it gives me a beautiful dewy finish. The best bit is that it’s made to strengthen the skin barrier function in the long-term too.”

“What I loved about Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser is that whilst it is a tinted moisturiser (a pretty everyday ordinary product), this one is definitely a step above. From the chic striped packaging to the texture and ease of application. I also like that it gives just the right amount of glow/colour whilst at the same time moisturising. Given we’re now moving into warmer days this has become a key part of my daytime skincare routine and can see it becoming a permanent fixture through summer.”

“In between blasting the heater at home and enjoying winter ocean swims, my hair has seen better days outside of lockdown. That is, until, O&M Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque soothed my strands. The Australian-made, cruelty-free helps repair the damage made from the sun, colouring and heat tools. It uses Uses grapeseed & macadamia to give hair a double shot of moisture. The ends of my hair feel smoother and look shinier, too.”

“I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a foundation wearer. Generally gravitating towards the lighter coverage options, it takes a lot for me to really love a foundation. But KVD Beauty’s Lock-It Foundation takes the cake (but is not at all cakey). Available in 44 shades, this foundation delivers full coverage with all-day wear. I like to blend it out from the centre of my face (where I have the most redness) and find that the formula smoothes over my skin with ease. It’s also transfer-resistant which is a huge plus for me!”

“What a treat for the skin! The Foreo Luna 3 leaves my skin feeling so squeaky clean and soft after every use. I love a facial so this is the next best thing while we’re stuck at home. A lockdown pamper and thorough cleanse!”

“With endless hours spent at home during a winter lockdown, what better time to prep my skin for summer. I’ve been applying the Sol Janeiro Bom Dia Bright Cream morning and night over the last month, and I’ve really noticed in the last week that the skin on my body feels smoother, softer and more hydrated. During winter, my legs and arms are prone to minor Keratosis Pilaris, and I have found that this magical body cream (most likely due to it’s naturally sourced AHAs) is working wonders and really helping keep those flare ups at bay. The product itself smells absolutely divine, and with its creamy texture, glides onto the skin effortlessly.”

Kate Reeves

Art Director

“Came for the hydration, stayed for the brightness. The OG for a reason, Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum is light and luscious and just does the job! You can believe the hype, my friends.”
