July has been filled with a series of highs and lows, but surprisingly, the two go hand in hand. In spite of the heatwave that has taken the UK by storm, this month has been filled with a series of skincare releases that are united by peptides and hydrating acids – destined to soothe and protect your skin from all of summer’s most prominent downturns. From eye creams to tanning drops, below, you’ll find five new products that belong in your shopping cart.
Laneige Mango Lip Sleeping Mask
If your lips are burned and chapped, look no further. Laneige’s new Mango Lip Sleeping Mask uses Vitamin C to smooth rough lips, working alongside evening primrose root and Hunza apricot extract to deliver lasting hydration that will leave your lips feeling sweet and supple. Available in five delicious scents such as lemon sorbet and vanilla, this lip product is bound to please the senses. Use the built-in spatula to apply an adequate amount on the lips before going to sleep, before gently wiping them clean with a cotton pad the following morning.
Youth to the People Polypeptide-121 Future Cream
Protecting your skin’s moisture barrier is vital, but with the launch of Youth to the People’s new face cream, there’s no better way to do so. Vegan and comprised of over 180 amino acids as well as rice, flax and pea plant proteins that are rich in antioxidants, this formula is jam packed with essential ingredients that will minimize the look of deep wrinkles and fine lines. For optimal results, after cleansing, smooth the treatment onto your face and neck both morning and night – we promise it’ll leave your skin with a healthy and ultra-dewy finish that you’ll adore!
Paula’s Choice C5 Super Boost Moisturiser
If you aren’t keeping up with Paula’s Choice’s newest releases, Voir is at your rescue, because trust us – you need them on your radar. This vitamin C moisturiser is ideal for all skin types, with a lightweight, gel-cream texture that improves firmness and brightens dullness. On its own, the superhero ingredient, vitamin C, can support some of skin’s most essential functions and counteract damage, so when partnered with barrier-repairing ingredients like peptides, it will undoubtedly bind in moisture and give you a supple complexion. Apply a small amount of the product once or twice daily to your face and neck, but if it’s daytime – don’t forget to top it off with SPF!
Glow Recipe x Isle of Paradise Glow in Paradise Kit
Both Glow Recipe and Isle of Paradise have enjoyed a cascade of positive criticism on social media, particularly TikTok, as of late. Their July collaboration combines two exclusive best-sellers, including the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturiser and Isle of Paradise’s Self-Tanning Drops. The moisturiser is 100% oil free, and if that wasn’t enough to persuade you, the formula is packed with vitamins, amino-acids, soothing botanicals and plumping hyaluronic acid, locking in moisture and preparing your skin for the day ahead. Paired with self-tanning drops which will supercharge your skin with coconut and avocado oil, this limited-edition duo delivers that post-vacation glow all year round.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel-Creme
Estée Lauder’s latest Night Repair Gel-Creme is perfect for tackling the harmful effects of the heatwave, laced with hyaluronic acid, a potent hydration booster, to keep your skin nourished for over 24 hours. The benefits of this supercharged treatment don’t stop there – with its 10X Concentrated Technology battling the visible impacts of UV rays, pollution, blue light and a lack of sleep by reducing dark circles, puffiness and dryness. If you’re in search of a product that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth all summer long, add this new product to your shopping cart for a youthful glow that promises to refresh and rejuvenate.
