As we head into the warmer months there are a few beauty picks that will carry us through summer. Here are our favourites from this month.

This delightful cleanser smells fresh and wonderfully pleasant. The cream formula doesn’t dry your skin out as it cleans and the jojoba beads leave your skin smooth but without scratching.

For the lover of barely-there foundation, Chanel Sublimage L’Essence De Teint is like a serum. This foundation does all the heavy lifting, improving the look of your skin while repairing it too. You can read all about why we love it in our foundation review.
The Jojoba Company Jojoba Glow
Shimmer body products may seem like a bit of a 90s high-school disco trope and nothing more. But I’m here to tell you that there is a very good reason to still wear them - especially this luscious one from the Jojoba Company. Subtle shimmer products have a way of soft-focusing your skin when applied all over. So if your legs (or any other part) isn’t as smooth as you would like, this absolutely helps to disguise what you may not want other people to see.
Avène Thermal Spring Water
Face mists are an essential, a handbag staple at all times. As we come into summer, we’re rediscovering this OG favourite. Light, fresh with no scent. It keeps you feeling fresh with zero stickiness.
Sisley Velvet Sleeping Mask

Use this in place of your night cream a couple of times a week and wake up refreshed, nourished and renewed. It really is like a mask but just one you leave on at night. It helps to improve the skin’s natural nighttime renewal processes while offering a deep moisturisation. It’s an ideal TLC shot for when your skin is feeling tired and dull.
Biossance Squalene and Elderberry Jelly Cleanser
This cleansing really does have a jelly consistency - and appearance too. It has a wonderful pink, wobbly look, owing to the inclusion of elderberries. But we love it because it’s a cleanser based on Biossance’s sugarcane squalane - an ingredient that does so much to help our environment. Plus, it’s a skin saviour, especially if your skin is a little dry.
Bite Beauty Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss

Bite Beauty has managed to create an all-natural, clean plumping lipgloss. It has the same tingling feeling as the plumping glosses you might remember from years gone by, only this one works using cinnamon. It’s a trip.
Chanel Sublimage L’Extrait de Nuit serum
This silky serum is designed to aid your nightly natural cellular repair, increasing the benefit you get from your beauty sleep. It’s a light-weight, glossy serum that sinks in and doesn’t leave your face feeling hot or sticky. Using Chanel's own fermented vanilla complex, this is a plant-powered super serum.
