There are few beauty collections that editors, bloggers and beauty junkies wait for all year round, and Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection is one of them. This signature summer scent just keeps getting better and this year’s drop certainly doesn’t disappoint.

What’s on offer?

The iconic Eau Fraîche is at the heart of the collection – an addictive, sun-drenched blend of bergamot, warm amber, Tiaré flower and vanilla combined with creamy coconut that smells just like sun-kissed skin. Not overly sweet (trust us), it’s also available in an Eau De Parfum, a beach bag must-have that’ll take you from sun lounger to bar in a spritz. This year’s drop also includes a genius Cooling Body Spray, brimming with the iconic coconut-y scent; a hyaluronic acid-packed Cooling Body Gelée (this year’s coolest after sun); and a Summer Waves Salt Spray that’ll protect hair with UV filters and impart a perfectly, imperfect look whether you’re on the beach or not.

Anything else?

If that wasn’t enough, this year’s Bronze Goddess make-up launches are some of the best to date – think tan-enhancing palettes and silky-smooth bronzing powders as well as a pout-perfecting tinted balm that’s packed with tropical fruit oils and clever pH technology that’ll adapt to your skin for a bespoke flush of colour. Our favourite? The Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heat Wave is a clever tri-brid of liquid, powder and gel that’ll show off your tan and contour cheekbones in one fell swoop.

Who’s it for?

Whether you’re on the hunt for a new summer scent or are already a Bronze Goddess fan looking to upgrade your warm weather stash, the new collection comes highly rated.
