RUSSH Loves: beauty favourites for May

There was so much delightful newness in beauty this month. Here's what we loved.


Hunter Lab Marine Healing Essence

Add this as your next step after cleansing, before your serums for beautiful and hydrated skin. It's particularly good to help calm irritation and add a bit of extra TLC to tired skin.


Dior Capture Totale Super Potent Eye Serum

A new innovation from Dior, this eye serum has an applicator head that helps massage the product into your delicate eye area. As for the serum itself, it's designed to smooth and firm all the way up to brow area.


Goldfield & Banks Silky Woods

This sensual, woody fragrance is destined to be your new signature scent. Trust me.


Bite Beauty Upswing Full Volume Mascara

For those that love volume, this mascara is the one for you. You get thick, fluffy lashes every time. Plus, Bit Beauty is cruelty-free and vegan.


Emma Lewisham Illuminating Brighten Your Day Crème

This delightfully nourishing cream keeps your skin feeling bright, healthy and smooth. Its particular delivery of vitamin C is suitable for even sensitive skin types. And if that's not enough to sell you, Emma Lewisham is one of the most ethical and sustainable brands on the market, reusing their packaging (which is superior to recycling). The brand also shares its Intellectual Property around its sustainability initiative with order brands in order to help the industry become more ethical as a whole.


Santa Maria Novella Rose Water Mist

If you're going to buy a rose water mist, it might as well be this beautiful glass-bottled essence made, by hand, from rose petals in Florence. It's what I will be doing from now on.


Caudalie Vinoperfect Dark Spot Correcting Glycolic Night Cream

This is an old favourite that has been recently reformulated with the latest in ingredient and cosmetic technology. It's a perfect pick for anyone wishing to erase any kind of blemish from their skin as they sleep.


Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot

Packed with antioxidants, this cream blush is one that loves your skin just as much as you'll love this vibrant colour.


Cloud Nine The Airshot Pro Hairdryer

My hair has genuinely never looked shinier than after using this device. According to Cloud Nine, the drying technology delivers 30 percent more shine - I was a skeptic until I saw the results. Plus, it dries your hair much, much faster than a regular dryer.



Votary Brightening Hyaluronic Serum

Luxury oils brand Votary bring us this special brightening serum which uses key actives to help smooth, plump and illuminate your skin. This of this as your all-in-one perfecting product.


Alya Skin Pink Pearl Illuminating Eye Cream

A light-weight cream that provides the perfect nourished base for your makeup. It helps to plump up the area so you look awake and lit from within.


CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser

Half of the RUSSH office swears by this accessible hero. A cream cleanser packed with ceramides, which are especially in winter when the weather's so harsh on your skin. It removes makeup but doesn't strip your skin. But the winning feature is that it helps to preserve your skin barrier as it cleans.


Dior Lip Glow in Cherry

Get ready to fall in love with this iconic lip balm all over again. It now comes in a dazzling new shade called Cherry - on sale from May 16 2021.


Elizabeth Arden Prevage 2.0

Your favourite serum has received an update. As time goes on, technology evolves and so has Prevage. Elizabeth Arden reformulated this product with new botanical ingredients and updated tech so you get the best results. Call it Prevage 2.0.


Ciaté Dewy Skin Glass Glow Skin Tint

This skin tint leaves your skin glossy and luminous - almost like glass just as the name promises. It wears beautifully, and barely needs powder, even at the end of a long work day. Tick, tick.


Hair Rituel by Sisley Restructuring Nourishing Balm

What I love about this hair mask is that its designed to be left on overnight. You don't have to wait idly in the shower for your mask to work, just pop it in the night before, rinse and you're done. It soaks in so don't worry, it doesn't stain your pillow. Once you're done, you're left with the glossiest of glossy manes.


Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster

I love niacinamide. It does a little bit of everything all while balancing oil production. It's also generally the most tolerable active, so perfect if you have sensitive skin. This product is not an all in one serum, rather its a turbo boost to add into your existing routine if you feel like you need more niacinamide in your life - which is certainly do.


R+Co Sun Catcher Leave-in Conditioner

A vitamin C treatment? For your hair? Yes, listen up. Your hair can be damaged by the Sun just like your skin can and this treatment is designed to give you some antioxidant protection from UV. Perfect for anyone who loves the great outdoors.


Alivio Hemp Naturals Spa Clay Mask

Why this clay mask you may ask? Well, when there are so many great products on the market, the deciding factor is often sustainability. Hemp is a much easier crop to grow than others. It requires less water and fewer pesticides, making hemp a sustainable alternative to other skincare ingredients. But it doesn't compromise of effectiveness. Hemp is incredibly nourishing and hydrating.
