1. The White Company Spa Maroc Body Scrub, £20

The leathery, herbal formula smells incredible and lingers on your skin all day, while the exfoliating beads are so gentle, you’ll be able to use it daily.   

2. Caudalie Milky Sun Spray SPF30, £20

Lightweight and non-sticky, this spray-on milk sinks in quickly and doesn’t leave behind any ghostly white streaks. We love the moisturising formula too, which hydrates just like a body lotion while the smell that instantly puts you into holiday mode.

3. Patchology Breakout Box, £18

Spots and blackheads are stopped in their tracks with this trio of potent strips that use salicylic acid, tea tree and volcanic ash to rid bacteria. Use overnight for best results, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you see results.


4. NYX Professional Badunkadunk Lush Lashes Mascara, £7.50

Packed with collagens, vitamins and keratin, NYX’s chunky mascara conditions while bulking up lashes for extra volume and instant inkiness.

5. Garden of Wisdom Pore Cleaning Powder, £12

We’re huge fans of GOW products here at SheerLuxe, and this latest powder is no exception. Formulated with nourishing kaolin clay and gentle zinc oxide, it’s suitable for all skin types and quickly gets to work removing dirt lodged in your pores. Just dip a damp pad into the powder and apply the paste for ten before rinsing it off. Both the results and the feeling of the application is super satisfying.

6. NARS Multi-Use Glosses, £20

If you love a dewy fresh glow, these dual-purpose glosses from NARS will be your new best friend. Whether you dab them onto your lids, cheeks, or lips, they leave behind a pretty sheen that catches the light beautifully. Laced with vitamin E and silky coconut oil, they have the added benefit of never feeling sticky or tacky either.

7.  Buxom Wanderlust Primer Infused Blusher, £16

Thanks to the very subtle, shimmery finish, you can skip highlighter for the day with these six wearable shades. Swirl on with a large blusher brush for an unbeatable, healthy flush. The addition of a primer is a bonus too – you’ll notice the colour really goes the distance.

8. MILK Kush Fiber Brow Gel, £15

A brow gel is always the easiest way to naturally bulk up your arches, and MILK’s latest offering is proof of that. It’s got a believable tint that takes all of five seconds to sweep through, with a CBD oil-infused formula that encourages regrowth while nourishing the brows.

9. L’Occitane Raspberry Crush Delicious Lip Scrub, £14

You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a small pot of jam, but really, it’s a juicy lip scrub that treats your lips with vitamin E. Available in three flavours (marmalade, raspberry and fig), they smell good enough to eat with gritty beads that gently wear down flakiness and dry patches. This raspberry tint also leaves behind a subtle flush of colour, too.

10. Essie Spring Collection Nail Polishes, £7.99

Whether you like your mani clean and matte or with a hint of subtle shimmer, there’s something for everyone in Essie’s new Spring collection. Choose from six pretty shades for a sophisticated finish.

11. Kristin Ess The One Signature Shampoo & Conditioner, from £11

These blush-pink bottles had us at hello. Designed to work on every hair type, they’re formulated with Zip-Up Repair Technology (a strengthening complex) that targets weak areas of hair while smoothing damaged cuticles and protecting from colour fade. We’ve noticed our strands look shinier and feel healthier with less flyaways than before.

12. Nude By Nature Travel Brush 10, £20

Handy for on-the-go with its retractable lid, this small brush is made for powders, but the densely packed hairs mean you can also seamlessly blend liquids and cream foundations too. Perfect for buffing.

13. Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser, £10

Skin in need of a pick-me-up? Indie Lee’s cult cleanser has created a buzz for good reason. Its gel-like formula is soft on the skin and leaves you with a satisfyingly clean complexion. The fruity, refreshing scent is a nice bonus, too.

14. Clarins Invisible Gel-In-Oil Facial Sun Care UVA/UVB SPF 30, £20

This brand-new SPF oil has created quite the stir at SheerLuxe HQ for its seriously sheer, lightweight texture. Infused with antioxidants and botanical extracts, it hydrates, absorbs quickly and leaves behind a pretty radiant, sheen we can’t get enough of.

15. Pixi Endless Shade Sticks, £12

Easy to apply, long-lasting and smudge proof – we can’t get enough of these new six shadow sticks from Pixi. Whether you wear as a liner, or buffed into lids for a fool proof smokey, they’ll allow you to create several eye looks with ease.

16. Maybelline Superstay Ink Crayon in Own Your Empire, £9.99

These new creamy, easy-to-wear mattes come in 12 suits-all shades that stay put without flaking or creasing. The pointed applicator tip allows you to get flawless definition with every swipe.

17. Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Purifying Gel Face Wash, £18

If you love Vichy like we do, you’ll love their brand-new cleansing gel which has been created especially for those who are acne prone, or worried about the damaging effects of pollution. Made with a cocktail of probiotics and salicylic acid, it softly buffs away the day’s grime without stripping the skin of its natural oils. It also has a delicious, herbal scent that’s seriously addictive.

18. Balance Me Congested Skin Sheet Masks, £16

Targeting all skincare woes, including dryness, acne and blocked pores, these useful sheet masks use bamboo charcoal, zinc, hyaluronic acid and witch hazel to brighten and soothe. While the effects won’t last forever, you’ll get instant gratification from the luminous glow they leave your complexion with. 

19. MAKE Beauty Dew Pot, £14.40

When time is at a premium, let this portable pot do the work. Dabbed onto lips, cheeks and eyelids, it instantly creates that fresh-faced look we all crave with a soft, pinky hue. Skin gets a boost too, with brightening vitamins C and E.

20. Lumene Nordic Nude Natural Glow Foundation, £20

We’re now onto our second bottle of this. The light moisture and semi-matte finish leaves skin looking so luminous, with a velvet-like glow that’s unlike anything we’ve ever tried before. Officially obsessed.
