New Year’s Eve may only feel like yesterday, but we are already in February and 2022 is well underway. With 2022 set to be one of the best in a while, many of us set out to take better care of ourselves this year.
February can be a pretty dreary month. The cold, dark nights and seemingly endless work days can make the next few weeks feel a little drab. However, if like us you are beauty obsessed, February doesn’t have to be all bad. With a number of exciting beauty launches to start the year and make us feel a little brighter.
Here is a look at some of our favourite launches so far.
So your new year’s resolution may have been to get more sleep and go out less, and while we support this goal, we know it isn’t always totally realistic. If you have already fallen out of your ten step bedtime ritual, we get it. Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch Concealer is here to rescue (or cover up) a multitude of sins.
Since its launch, this concealer has been getting a lot of attention on TikTok as one of the best concealers to get your hands on now and it’s clear to see why. It smoothes the undereye area and doesn’t settle into fine lines. Packed with hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil and glycerin to prevent creasing and keep the eyes hydrated and plump. The perfect product to keep you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed even after a late night.
Aveda’s Botanical Repair range has long been hailed as a hair saviour. The newest addition to the family is this Overnight Serum. A product that dramatically repairs hair by drenching locks in moisture to reveal stronger, shinier and more resilient strands.
The cocktail of reparative oils includes avocado oil, sunflower seed oil and castor oil and the lightweight serum works while you snooze. Aveda’s bond-building technology works to strengthen the core of the hair to leave it smooth, healthy and glossier than ever. Every day can be a good hair day.
Rihanna may have broken the internet with her pregnancy announcement and had us all swooning over her sweet baby bump, but there’s another announcement that really had us excited. Fenty Skin’s newest product is an alpha hydroxy, acid-infused toner to help us start the year with smooth and glowing skin a lá Rih Rih.
It brightens, smooths, and refines the look of pores thanks to its potent mix of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), rooibos, and fruit enzymes and extracts. Simply use the cloth applicator to apply the toner on freshly washed skin. Glowing, photo-ready skin is just moments away.
