June heralds the first inkling of summer, and visions of beer gardens and picnics in the park are the order of the day. This month also marks the drop of a brand new legion of beauty buys, from multi-tasking creams, to high-gloss lip glosses and crease-free concealers.
There's a brand new body cream from none other than Sol de Janeiro (you know, the brand behind our beloved Bum Bum Cream), a dreamy tinted moisturiser from Rare Beauty that'll see you through spring and beyond and a simplified 3-step skincare routine from Dr David Jack that we're all over.
There's so much joy to be had in these beauty buys. Shop them, save them, share with your friends, this lot is not to be missed:

Leading London-based aesthetic Doctor David Jack aims to simply the complicated, multi-step routines dominated our feeds (and reduce waste) with a new 3-step prescription. Designed for all skin types and concerns, Dr. Jack's latest offering includes Good Morning, a powerhouse Vitamin C serum, All Day Long an SPF 50 day moisturiser and Good Night, a rejuvenating night cream. A streamlined, fuss-free, time-saving skincare routine that actually works? We're sold.
The vegan wellness lattes created by Sara Herandi, Deja Life's founder, are formulated with the ritualistic approach of Ayurveda in mind, these clever cups of adaptogens and antioxidants help you carve out little moments each day for chill, focus or connection. Made to treat the tastebuds (with no artificial sweeteners or nasties) whether you’re enjoying a cup on your own or sharing a cosy moment with friends.
Brand new from billion dollar cosmetics brand Huda Beauty, this creamy concealer offers buildable, crease-free coverage that lasts. It's enriched with sweet almond oil and vitamin e, both of which help to strengthen your skin and boost elasticity, ideal for the delicate skin around your eyes if you're looking to veil dark circles.
You'll want to collect all the colours in this range. Hourglass' latest lip launch is one that is a seriously smart gloss-meets-balm hybrid: one swipe lends a healthy amount of colour to lips, while conditioning them with emollients and oils. As for the finish, don't expect a sticky gloss - more pretty, juicy sheen.
A new cleanser from Eve Lom is something to celebrate. Their latest iteration needs you to forget everything you think you know about foam cleansers (Drying? Harsh? Not in this instance). A splash of water turns this into a delicate, foamy milk, that does a surprisingly brilliant job at ridding make-up (although not waterproof). Skin feels more hydrated than before after use.
If the cute packaging doesn't draw you in, the scent will. It's soft, comforting, and smells exactly like a freshly laundered pile of white sheets (read: you'll want to dive head first into them). It's not just the scent we're enamoured with, either; the formula is packed full of kind to skin ingredients (plant-based milks, linseed, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E) to curb any sensitivity. Thank you, Fresh.
Yes: this bronzer is almost too pretty to use. Do dive in though, because it supplies a subtle warmth to the skin that looks seriously believable. The texture is fine and uber blendable, making it a solid option for those who are naturally a little apprehensive over bronzer application. This is one that'll convert even the most bronzer adverse.
Sol de Janeiro know a great body cream. Their latest is a touch richer than their iconic Bum Bum Cream, this time targeting moisture and collagen loss. It floods skin with hydration that truly does last the day (no 4pm dry patches here). Despite this, it still manages to be fast absorbing and quick to dry.
Eye roll at celebrity beauty brands all you wish, but Rare Beauty have established themselves as a serious player in the beauty industry. Their latest launch, this Tinted Moisturiser, proves it. It's lightweight, luminous, and lends just a touch of coverage that evens out mild discolouration, making it one of the better Tinted Moisturiser options we know.
Yes to a new moisturiser from CeraVe. This one is lightweight, fluid and supplies a healthy dose of hydration to skin in need. Sensitive skin types will naturally love this: it contains the brand's signature blend of ceramides to curb sensitivity and strengthen the skin barrier.
A new offering from renowned skincare brand Kiehl's, the Super Multi Corrective Eye Zone Treatment, £41, takes a 360 degree approach to nourishing the delicate skin around your eyes. Antioxidant rich botanicals like bilberry seed extract and a high-tech patented skincare complex called Proxylane take centre stage, and work to firm, de-puff, smooth and lift skin in one.
Hurrah to a new flavour of Glossier Balm Dotcom. These little tubes of salve are half tint, half sheen, and make light work of sealing moisture into the lips. The newest iteration, lavender, has the softest hint of purple and looks surprisingly pretty on lips.
Bella Freud's latest home scent brings flair to any room, with its chic, minimalist aesthetic and cheering scent. The scent is as beautifully disruptive as the 'Ciao' emblazoned on the vessel: warm fig spliced with sweet, juicy orange blossom and vetiver.
Jo Malone's latest collection, inspired by wild swimming, is here to welcome in the warmer months. Highlights include Crystal Campion, a sparkling, fresh, crystalline scent that is delicate and supremely easy to wear.
Hurrah for cordless heat styling. BaByliss' latest launch is your ticket to beachy, summer waves (minus the sun damage). Heat is distributed evenly throughout the curved wands here, so your curls are consistent and fluid. Three temperature settings allow you to control your style, too.
Yes, the beauty industry is saturated, but something we'll never complain about is the arrival of a new SPF brand. Naked Sundays' chic new range is immaculately packaged and formulated: textures are light, airy and feel genuinely lovely to use. This mist is the smartest way we know to top up our facial SPF throughout the day, without disturbing make-up and stinging eyes.
Tan meets skincare in Bare by Vogue's latest innovation. It's jam packed full of hyaluronic acid and oat lipids to hydrate and soothe, all while lending a believable bronzed glow to tired skin. Incorporating tan into your skincare has never been easier.
Think you know cleansing bars? Think again. Carbon Theory's latest includes a generous dose of exfoliating salicylic acid to decongest and gently resurface skin, balanced with shea butter to offset any dryness. This is solid skincare that doesn't compromise on efficacious formula; textured, blemish-prone and combination skin types will love it.
Hats off to Peter Thomas Roth's copywriting team: the name of this mask makes you want to dive in alone. Find in this smart mask a whole host of hydrators, like a hyaluronic acid complex, aloe and vitamin E to nurture dry, fussy skin. Sign us up.
If there's anything to remind you to clean your beauty blender, it's a set with the actual cleanser inside. This kit contains two blenders (the classic type, emblazoned with some sunglasses), and a Blendercleanser, a solid cleanser that really does budge stains and eliminate germs from our favourite sponge.
A good toothbrush is a worthy investment. Silk'n Sonic's offering is seriously smart, with 3 different modes that serve different functions (think deep clean, polish and whiten). The best part though? The battery life: one charging session lasts up to 300 days (lazy girls, rejoice).
If there's one thing we know, it's that Ole Henrikson makes great, efficacious skincare. Their latest launch is no exception. Rich full of antioxidants like vitamin C and niacin amide, this essence lends glow in buckets to lacklustre skin and strengthens the skin barrier. This is smart skincare.
Operating with both style and substance, Glow Recipe's newest SPF reminds us of a K-Beauty one: lightweight, fluid and well absorbed. Dry skin types will love especially the glow sheen this leaves skin with.
Ciaté sure do nail their collaborations. Their latest comes from Smiley, and this blush quad is a particular highlight. While some illuminating blushers have chunks of glitter that are unflattering on skin, the illuminating particles here are ultra fine: one swipe supplies colour and radiance in one go. Use across the apples of the cheeks and even the eyes, for a complete tonal look.
Too many facial mists are water, and very little else. Dermalogica's offering is (naturally) amped up, with a good glug of hyaluronic acid and ceramides that hydrate, nurture and soothe parched skin. Pop in the fridge and use to mollify hot, red skin, and use to set and refresh make-up.
Next time you go for your super sculpting FaceGym facial, check out their skincare offering. Namely, their newest drop: the Skin Changer. This exfoliating toner-meets-essence gobbles up dead skin cells (thanks to a clever blend of succinic acid and pumpkin extract), leaving skin with a newfound, post facial glow.
