19 January 2024

From Sol de Janeiro's new body butter to The Body Shop's vitamin C moisturiser, and more, here are the top beauty launch picks of the week from team. 

Pink Lemonade Lip Sleeping Mask, Laneige

The TikTok beauty community will be pleased as yet another of Laneige’s bestselling Lip Sleeping Masks has launched in the UK. The viral lip balm has users going wild for its ultra-nourishing formula and fun scents, with the limited-edition Pink Lemonade mask encouraging even more hype around the product and brand.

Plumping lips with intense moisture, the balm helps to minimise roughness and cracking due to dryness. Ingredients include a berry fruit complex, coconut oil and vitamin C, with a vibrant pink and yellow swirl design representing pink lemonade. Priced at £22, the new Lip Sleeping Mask is available at Cult Beauty, Lookfantastic and Space NK.

Sol de Janeiro

Delicia Drench Body Butter, Sol de Janeiro

Sol de Janeiro, when translated from Portuguese, means Sun of January. While in this insanely popular Brazilian brand's homeland, January is high summer, it's obviously the deepest depths of winter here in the UK. Happily its latest launch brings a much welcome dose of Brazilian sun into our winter bodycare regimes.

Delicia Drench is the first body butter to be added to the brand's line-up and has been formulated to nourish the microbiome and calm stressed and dry skin. Its putty-like texture soaks into the skin in an instant, delivering a hit of Brazilian Soothing Complex, Prebiotic Hibiscus and Bacuri butter encased in a fragrance that lives up the Delicia billing. It can also be complemented with the Cheirosa 59 fragrance (available from 2 February) to boost the violet, vanilla and sandalwood scent, along with your mood.

Space NK has exclusivity on the range until 1 February and it is already a top-seller.

The Body Ship vit c

Vitamin C Glow Boosting Intense Moisturiser, The Body Shop

Off the back of the announcement that The Body Shop was named as the first global beauty brand to receive 100% vegan certification, the brand has extended its bestselling Vitamin C line. Joining the line-up including a Glow Cleansing Polish, Glow Revealing Tonic and Glow-Revealing Serum, the intense iteration of the moisturiser replenishes and hydrates dry skin.

The moisturiser retails for £22. Thanks to a concoction of vitamin C, bakuchiol and olive-derived squalene, it promises to decrease dark spots by 68% after eight weeks and brighten skin after four weeks. What makes it a standout? Vitamin C is a superstar ingredient that helps to boost the skin’s collagen formation and boost radiance.

Lotus AHA Gentle Resurfacing Serum, Fresh

A couple of night serums have come to our attention this week, suggesting brands may be spying a new opportunity in sleep.

This one from LVMH-owned Fresh is an extension of its hero Lotus range (other products in the range include the Youth Preserve day and night creams, eye cream and rescue mask). It's designed to gently resurface this skin overnight and its formulation of AHAs and prickly pear flower promises to even skin texture, boost radiance and reduce the look of dark spots & lines.

"We wanted to create an exfoliating serum that’s gentle on skin, and that’s when we had an 'a-ha' moment to use prickly pear flower extract. Its resurfacing properties paired with a duo of AHAs turned out to be a dreamy combination for the smoothest, most radiant complexion," explains Lev Glazman, Fresh Co-Founder. Priced at £60, it's available from Fresh and Space NK.

Baies and Roses Candle Duo, Diptyque

For Valentine’s Day, Diptyque has introduced a limited-edition candle duo that celebrates encounters and unions - of hearts and of scents. The Baies (Berries) and Roses candles combine the tangy green accents of berries with the floral notes of roses, creating a fragrant symphony of flowers, fruits, and leaves.

Still reminiscent of Diptyque's iconic style, the candle duo (£118) boasts a love-themed twist with red and pink heart-shaped labels and outer packaging nodding to the Valentine's Day Baies and Roses scents.

Jones Road

Multivitamin Serum, Jones Road

Makeup legend Bobbi Brown does things differently with her Jones Road makeup meets skincare line. She’s persuaded swathes of women that what looks like a giant tub of tinted lip balm (her signature Miracle Balm) to be applied liberally across your face every day is a must-have. And it is. I have three.

She takes the same unexpected approach to her skincare products. The latest addition is the all-in-one Multivitamin Serum (Brown’s also a fan of multi-tasking products). It contains a blend of vitamins C, B, E and Sodium Hyaluronate to soothe, brighten and hydrate the face and neck for healthy feeling skin.

The twist her is the applicator. Unlike most serums which come with a pipette, Brown has opted for a rollerball to ensure hygienic application while also delivering a cooling and depuffing effect from the stainless steel ball. Available now at Jones Road Beauty for £46.
