With the flurry of new products that pass through the Beauticate office, we decided to put together our pick of the glossiest, shiniest, prettiest new picks hitting the beauty shelves every month. And what better time to start than the changing of seasons? As summer closes, we'll be welcoming in the cream of the autumn beauty crop. This month’s selection of hard-working skin quenchers, post-summer detoxifiers and garden fresh scents will defy the sometimes drab and dehydrating down-side of the amber month. Get ready to be perfectly prepped for a cool change.


A fresh season calls for a fresh scent (or three). We are currently misting the Jo Malone Herb Garden Collection in the office – they’re fresh, light and have that perfect crisp sweetness we love about the first sign of autumn air.

The ultimate in luxe skincare, La Mer have once again impressed with their latest dream cream. Part moisturiser, part mask, use the cushy, dreamy La Mer Perfecting Treatment twice daily over your face and neck, and revel in soft, dewy skin.

If, like us, the moment the cooler air hits you literally feel it zap all of your skin’s moisture, Clinique’s new Moisture Mask Balm will certainly find its pretty place on your vanity. Spot apply in the mornings, or all over before bed – just take off excess with a tissue.

If your Autumn skin is feeling a little lack lustre, Luma Illuminating Highlighter in Nude Lamé is the perfect shade of ballerina pink to pat onto your cheekbone, brow bone and cupids bow for a subtle creamy glow.

The cooler months are the perfect excuse for a glossy new manicure. Chanel have answered our prayers in the form of their new Le Gel Top Coat. Activated by natural light, it extends the wear of normal nail polish for up to seven days, so there’s no need to replace last winter’s colours, we’re still loving peachy nudes for a polished look.

Cult classic Lanolips has long been a handbag staple – especially come autumn. Their new tinted balm is the perfect shade of nude for a boost of healthy colour while hydrating chapped lips.

We didn’t even realise we needed this until it landed on our desk. The skin loving Clarisonic Smart Profile is a 4-speed cleansing system for face and body that self adjusts power and timing. Perfect for sloughing off winter makeup.

If you’re feeling a deep cleanse is in dire need after months drenched in sun protection, the latest Charcoal Rescue Mask from Dermalogica brightens, detoxifies and refreshes your skin in one easy step.
