9 Beauty Products Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of This Month: July 2022

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

“I don’t know whether it’s the cold weather, lack of sunshine or gail force winds lashing Sydney at the moment, but my skin has been looking particularly dull recently. Sigh. So, I was very excited to try the new Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Eye Serum 2.0 to help bring some life back to my tired little face. A powerful eye serum that harnesses the power of idebenone to help protect against environmental damage, correct all visible eye aging signs and perfect the skin for a youthful glow, this formula is a real heavy hitter. I loved the metal applicator which works to cool and depuff the eye area while you apply and have noticed a considerable difference in the appearance of my dark circles when I wake up. In a word, this eye serum is unreal.”

Stacey Stageman

Producer

“The Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish was such a treat for my winter skin! This hydrating yet deeply exfoliating scrub left my skin feeling super smooth and polished all over for days on end. The delicious addition of evening primrose, sweet almond and jojoba oils also left my skin nourished and glowing. A real win, win, win!”

Eleanor Pendleton

Founder & Editor-in-Chief

“For a smouldering smokey eye without the effort, Sisley’s Ombre Éclat Liquide in #6 is the perfect solution. More subtle than a black eyeshadow, this khaki hue has just the right amount of gold shimmer. Best applied directly onto the eyelid then smudged on using your ring finger, this liquid eyeshadow can create a bold beauty look in seconds. The only question left to ask is: where are you going out tonight?”

“If your hair is looking for a little TLC, look no further than R+Co’s Ultra Shine Glossing Treatment. The best thing about it? You can use it as an in-shower treatment once a week to replace your conditioner. After washing your hair, apply from roots to ends and let it sink in for approximately five minutes before washing out and voila, you’re sorted! I’ve been using this treatment for the last few weeks and I can confidently say that I noticed a boost of shine and it has left my hair feeling more hydrated and nourished.”

“Just as the name suggests, the Il Makiage Colour Boss Squad Eyeshadow palette suits those long office days perfectly. With a golden colour palette, the buttery, smooth texture of the shadows stays in place all day with no creasing. The sleek compact with magnetic closure and a full mirror is also a plus.”

Sarah Daly

Art Director

“As the saying goes, it’s all about life’s little luxuries and it’s been delivered to me in this little jar of joy that is the Hermes Nail Oil. Of course, anything with the iconic Hermes namemark on it sparks joy, but it’s more than that. This nail oil is about taking a moment out of my busy day to indulge in some me-time. It has become a daily ritual, a time to reflect and reset while nourishing both my head and my cuticles.”

Naomi Ferreira

Partnerships & Editorial Coordinator

“With a blend of hyaluronic acid, glycerin and squalane, the Summer Fridays Dream Oasis Serum is a soothing, thirst-quenching cocktail for all skin types delivered in a weightless formulation. Prep with a facial mist and apply before your favourite moisturiser and you’ll be echoing the words of my good friend Lizzie McGuire… “This is what dreams are made of!”

Hannah Brooks

Junior Designer

“Meet your scalp’s new best friend. The Gisou Honey Infused Scalp Treatment deeply nourishes and soothes to relieve signs of a dry scalp and unbalanced microbiome. It’s super lightweight so you don’t need to worry about waking up with oily hair. Alongside providing instant relief to an itchy and irritated scalp, this product has a ridiculously delicious honey scent.”

Sue Hoffman

Strategic Partnerships Manager

“I have always loved Aesop products. So, when the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm landed on my desk to review I was pretty happy. Hand cream has always been part of my nighttime ritual just before getting into bed but the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm just elevates it to another level. Lusciously nourishing and beautifully scented with mandarin and rosemary, it’s a little bit of me-time that just got even better.”
