Wave: The new beauty releases we can’t live without

New in: fragrance

Eclipse, the new fragrance from Ghost ticks all the right boxes for spring/summer 2014. Fruity, floral top notes including mandarin and sweet bergamot will make this a firm favourite for those, like me, who love their fragrances light and fun. It’s not all sunshine though – hence the name, Eclipse – with base notes of amber and musk connoting the deep night. It’s a fragrance of two halves, and will leave you feeling confident and happy.
£25–£46.50, available exclusively from Superdrug and The Perfume Shop from 7th May and nationwide from 1st July at Boots, Debenhams and The Fragrance Shop.

New IN: Face care

Luxury skin care brand Jan Marini has just launched its latest duo: the Clean Zyme Face Cleanser and Skin Zyme Mask. The secret ingredient here is Papain – from unripened papaya – which leaves skin super soft and exfoliated. Together, the products reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Used just once a week, the mask leaves skin smoother, firmer and smelling lush!

New In: Hair Care

Give the hair dryer and straighteners a break this summer and opt for soft, touchable mermaid waves. Paul Mitchell’s new Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturising Sea Spray is the perfect product to nail this season’s sought-after style. Apply the product and leave hair to dry naturally, or plait hair before bed so you can get up and head straight to the beach the next day. When you do need to use the curling iron, protect hair with Paul Mitchell’s Heat Seal for super smooth locks and frizz-free waves.

New IN: Skin Care

The environment can wreck havoc on our skin, drying it out, ageing it prematurely and making it lacklustre. French beauty brand Caudalie has launched a new range of products to fight back. The science bit: grape-seed polyphenols is the key ingredient here, combined with vitamin C for a 100% anti-oxidant. The range includes Anti Wrinkle Defense Serum (£35) for an anti-oxidant shot of youth; SPF20 Anti-Wrinkle Protect Fluid (£29), as a shield for the day and Anti-Wrinkle Eye & Lip Cream (£26). It’s the perfect set to rejuvenate skin. www.caudalie.com
