21 New Beauty Products to Obsess Over in June
This month marks not only the official start of winter, but the beginning of some truly feral weather. (Especially in Sydney where temps stayed pretty sweet through autumn #blessed.) If you're all about that Netflix and chill, you'll be pleased to know there are many weekends ahead in which no-one will expect you to abandon the couch for hangs. If you're more into, you know, ~doing things~, you're about to have some free time on your hands.
Know what's good for killing free time? Beauty stuff. Think: finally getting around to recreating the mind-blowing YouTube makeup tutorials you've bookmarked, whipping up DIY face masks/body scrubs/lip balms, and devoting endless internet exploration to unearthing a life-altering signature scent. If you also feel the urge to spruce up your beauty routine (so you can emerge from winter an even more beautiful butterfly), consider the following list of amazing new launches we can't get enough of right now.
From a probiotic-rich skin lotion to the Holy Grail of eyeshadow palettes, here's what we're obsessing over for June.
Swisse Natural Defence BB Cream SPF 30 ($25)
I have huge love for Swisse's products (their commitment to sourcing quality ingredients is immense), and this new glow-boosting BB cream is no different. It's made with a cocktail of antioxidants and mineral sunscreens to help prevent both environmental and UV damage.
Today is Ours Super Greens Face Mask ($65)
This under-the-radar Aussie brand is all about natural products made to ethical standards and with transparency. The hero of the range is a nourishing face mask packed with purifying clays and antioxidant-rich greens. The genius bit? The formula is dry, so you can customise it to suit your skin's needs. Opt for coconut oil to soothe dryness, or mix in a splash of cold pressed juice for an instant glow.
By Terry Cellularose Dual Exfoliation Scrub ($109)
A clever 3-in-1 formula, this unique scrub transforms from a gel into an oil with massage, then again into a lotion as you rinse it off. It contains both manual and chemical exfoliants (plus real flower buds!) for extra silky, rose-perfumed skin.
Bourjois City Radiance Skin Brightening Foundation ($29)
Bourjois has got the recipe for creating glowy foundations that don't cost the earth, down pat. (See: Beauty editor-fave Healthy Mix, $26, for further proof.) Their newest offering promises light, luminous coverage and UV protection.
This product launches on June 20th.
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Brow Gel ($45)
I was convinced I wasn't going to rate this—I've never opted for tinted brow wax over powder in my life—but one week with this baby in my makeup bag has show me the error of my wax-less ways. The formula is subtle, natural-looking and CrossFit-proof, and now? I'm not sure how I lived without it.
