April Beauty Launches: The Low Down

Good Afternoon little lobsters!  Below is a quick round up of all the just announced, new cosmetic releases coming in April & May. Keep your eyes peeled!

bareMinerals 15th Anniversary Mineral Veil finishing powder


BareMinerals have been around for 15 years!! To celebrate they are launching an anniversary version of their wicked Mineral Veil finishing powder, with new limited-edition Flip-Brush-Go Packaging. I love this powder but loathe having to carry pot and brush with me on a night out, there is only so much room in ones Rivington clutch bag, yah? The new packaging has a flow-through brush which loads up the product on the way through, ready for application when it comes out the other side. GENIUS!

The multi-benefit veil absorbs excess oil while minimising the appearance of fine lines and pores. Available in Original and Tinted, Mineral Veil works on all skin types and skin tones.

Launch date: April
Prices: £22
Stockists: bareMinerals boutiques, bareminerals.co.uk, Boots, department stores, select salon & spas

CARMEX Jasmine Green Tea lip balm

Carmex Jasmine Green tea

One of my most favourite lip balms ever is Carmex Pomegranate flavoured lip balm that comes in a twisty tube. So, I love that they are venturing out into different flavours yet again and cannot wait to give this one a try! This offering is a blend of jasmine and green tea and has SPF15 protection and contains menthol, camphor, vitamin E, aloe and sheer butters. I hope the fact they use camphor means it is the naturally derived one and not the synthetically made stuff from turpentine!

Launch date: April
Prices: £2.69
Stockists: Topshop & graftonsbeauty.co.uk


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion

Palmer's moisture spray

OOH OOH OOOOOH! I love this new concept of spray-on moisturisers. Vaseline started this trend last summer and although I fell in love with the spray mechanic, the actual product is not moisturising enough! I have high hopes for this spray moisturiser because cocoa butter is much more naturally derived and moisturising than petroleum based moisturisers like Vaseline. It is described as a lightweight, non-greasy and fast-absorbing moisturising spray. The product contains cocoa butter, shea butter and vitamin E and can hydrate for up to 24 hours.

Launch date: April
Prices: £7.99
Stockists: Superdrug (April) & Boots (May)

Beauty brand Guerlain has announced the launch of a staggering 4 new additions to the Guerlain Super Aqua range! New products include: Super Aqua Day Creme, which is a luscious and gentle day cream used to plump up skin whilst protecting against stress and pollutants formulated for dry to normal skin. A Super Aqua Day Gel, which is a multi-purpose soothing gel, more fresh and lightweight made for normal to combo skin; intensely hydrating yet not heavy. This will be perfect under make up in the summer months!  Super Aqua Night Balm, which comes enriched with peach leaf extract to help restore and revive skin in an overnight, anti-fatigue treatment. Wonderful for after holiday skin to help prolong the tan and soothe sun irritated skin.

And finally, Super Aqua BB+ Hydra, a BB cream infused with Guerlain’s hydrating formula, which I cannot wait to try! I love it when a well established brand, such as Guerlain, brings out an on-trend, cult product like a BB, as I am always really interested to find out what makes their formula unique! Available in shades Light and Medium and incorporating SPF25.

Launch date: 2 April
Prices: £43-£81
Stockists: nationwide
