7 Products Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of This Month: November 2023

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

Rose Garnett,
Beauty Editor

“Sometimes your skin just needs a little extra help to look fresh and plump. Enter: Guerlain’s Double R Renew & Repair Eye Serum. I am relatively new to eye cream but this one has left a lasting impression. Combining the power of two exclusive technologies to illuminate and resculpt the eye area, this formula contains 95 per cent naturally-derived ingredients and is enriched with white honey concentrate and an anti-fatigue complex to keep you looking well-rested and radiant. It is a new must-have in my routine!”

Danielle Gay,

Mx Skincare’s Facial Oil+ has become a staple in my routine. Full of high-quality actives like vitamin A, C and CoEnzyme Q10, it keeps my skin calm and happy while delivering a hit of hydration. I love wearing it day or night (under foundation in the AM for a beautiful glowing base).”

Sarah Garnam,
Office Assistant

“This Fenty Beauty Hella Thicc Volumising Mascara gives exactly what it promises—hella thicc lashes. Not for the faint hearted, the mascara will have your lashes looking lifted and voluminous in one coat. The best part? The colour is the blackest of blacks so I find there’s no need to add liner to the lash line to achieve that defined eye look.”

Hannah Brooks,
Junior Designer

“If you’re after a fuss-free shampoo and conditioner, Beaute Pacifique has your back. Dermatologically developed, these formulas are supposedly milder than water. Not only is my hair left with soft and bouncy volume but my hair is giving clean girl energy all thanks to the beautiful scent. The conditioner is also a miracle worker at detangling long locks. A perfect pairing for anyone with a sensitive scalp.”

Nicola Sevitt,
Senior Creative Producer

Venroy’s Paradiso is summer personified. It feels familiar to me, with comforting notes reminiscent of youthful sun-kissed days, yet it also sparks a sense of new adventures yetto come. This free-spirited scent has depth and versatility; one I will reach for this season both day and night.”

Tanika Rouillon,

“As I’m not a potent perfume wearer, the AYU has been a long-loved brand in my fragrance collection, because of its oil properties. The scent range is considered, alcohol-free and with a jojoba oil base, making it glide on the skin. Vala has a rich honey aroma, which I love paired with the earthy undertones of sandalwood and patchouli. Better yet, it comes in 15mL and 30mL—both perfect for your travel kit or handbag.”

Lilli Corbett,
Account Manager

“I’m not ordinarily a lipstick girlie, but the Gucci Rouge à Lèvres Voile Sheer Lipsticks are such a dream. A sheer formula is crucial for buildable colour and this one is satiny and hydrating so it melts into your lips as a natural stain and doesn’t build up to that dreaded dry, cracked matte lip. I’ve been using the shade 208 endearingly named “They Met in Argentina”…which is almost as cute as the packaging!”
