With spring in full swing and summer on the horizon, thoughts turn to brighter, glow-giving makeup and fresh-looking skin that’s been soothed and smoothed over night…
NARSissist Palette II


OriginsOrigins Original Skin Cleansing Jelly, £19.50. We love the fresh, bouncy texture of this new, deep-cleansing face wash from Origins. The lightweight gel, free of mineral oil, parabens and other nasties, transforms into a nourishing, milky cleanser with a just few splashes of water, helping to break down and dissolve stubborn face and eye makeup and excess oil. Massage into wet skin, rinse off and show off baby-soft skin.



bareMineralsbareMinerals barePro 16-Hour Full Coverage Concealer, £23. Brighten up your peepers to fake a full night’s sleep with this brand new concealer, delivering ultra-creamy coverage that’s natural-looking, crease-proof and, somehow, stays put all day. It’s also waterproof and humidity-resistant, making it a perfect pop-in-your-suitcase product if you’re jetting off to warmer climes over the coming months.



BiodermaBioderma Sebium Mat Control, £12.50. Tackle shiny skin as the weather (slowly) warms up, with a few pats of Bioderma’s new mattifying moisturiser. A perfect pick for oily, sensitive complexions, the gentle fluid melts into skin, leaving zero residue, helping to refine and tighten pores, control shine for up to eight hours and tend to pesky blemishes and blocked pores. A great base for makeup, too.



Jimmy ChooJimmy Choo Blossom Special Edition Eau de Parfum, £48, (60ml). We can’t get enough of Jimmy Choo’s new, springtime scent – a sparkling, sweeter version of the brand’s iconic fragrance. The perfect balance between floral and fruity, with juicy notes of exotic fruits blended with light frangipani and sandalwood, it’s an absolute must-buy for anyone after an uplifting, refreshing and feminine spritz for the warmer months.



NeomNeom Perfect Night’s Sleep Cleansing Balm, £32. Neom’s new cleanser is a soothing winner, guaranteed to calm even the most stressed-out skin, leaving it softer, more balanced and replenished. It’s 100 per cent natural and infused with 14 pure, relaxing essential oils, including lavender and chamomile, and vitamin-rich oils, all of which help to repair tired skin and help you prepare for sleep. Best massaged into clean, damp skin and removed with a muslin cloth.



ElemisElemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix, £145. Smooth this new, lightweight gel-cream over your face at night to wake up to a smoother, more youthful complexion with visible bounce-back. The perfect overnight treatment for anyone battling stress, sleepless nights or daily pollution, it’s packed with powerful peptide technology which works through the night, flooding skin with hydration, plumping fine lines and wrinkles and restoring clarity and firmness.



NARSissist Wanted Cheek Palette I and II, £45 each. New for spring/summer, NARS reveals a curated selection of 12 new and beloved cheek shades in two limited-edition palettes. Brighten up with cool corals and pops of pink, or go bold with radiant reds and deep raspberry in matte, satin and shimmer finishes. As with all NARS blushers, the formulas are buttery soft and blend like a dream. Get your hands on them while you can.
