The time has come to shed the heavy layers of winter, to welcome the lighter and brighter beauty sibling that is spring. As the temperatures take on a humid temperament, skin tends to crave more lightweight and energising treatment, with colours of a more youthful shade. Whether you’re seeking a vibrant new scent, born-again lip colour or preventive skincare, these new launches are up your alley.

Anya Smells

A major part of your beauty regime is the unwinding therapy – if it’s not, it will be now once you catch a whiff of the new additions to Anya Hindmarch Smells. Clarify your mind and awaken your senses with dreamy scents, inspired lip balm (juicy ripe fruit and sweet florals), toothpaste (a cooling concoction of mint, grapefruit and English rhubarb) and washing powder (ozonic clean notes of Calone, violet leaf, cucumber and watermelon rind).

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask

Touted as a 5-minute facial in a jar, the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask reverses the effects of stress and fatigue, caused by internal and external factors. The formula contains lotus flower extract, Fresh’s trademark Super 7 complex, and a blend of kombu seaweed flakes and red algae, that lends a burst of antioxidant goodness instantly.

Givenchy Le Rouge Mat

Most matte lipsticks tend to dry out the lips, but Le Rouge Mat is an exception. Bright and comfortable, Givenchy’s new edition is formulated with a ‘velvet complex’ that also imbues lips with a second-skin effect of various red shades.

Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum

Paying ode to the season of renewal, the Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum blossoms with a citrus-fresh and intense wood aroma. Top notes of Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot mingle with Indonesian patchouli, rose and jasmine, and lingers with Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla – familiar Coco Mademoiselle scents that transports you to a rustic setting.

Shu Uemura POREfinist2 cleansing oil

As humidity levels rise, so too does the oily levels of skin. If you’re prone to greasy skin in warmer temperatures, the Shu Uemura POREfinist2 sakura refreshing cleansing oil does a fine job at balancing sebum levels and reducing blackheads as well as thoroughly removes makeup.

Dior Lip Glow

A lip balm that hydrates and tints is the ultimate springtime purse essential. A fast favourite among models, the Dior Lip Glow keeps chapped lips at bay and puts some much-needed colour to your features – without the weight of makeup, but the outcome of a natural lip colour.
