Ten of the best new beauty product launches for 2022 | Beauty

So long festive period. We are now looking forward to, well, real life. So let’s think of things to lift our spirits. Things that make us look, feel and smell nice. Shallow yes, but a mood booster. Gucci’s primer balances skin that (like mine) has the capacity toproduce an oilfield. You’ll be matte but not comatose. Charlotte Tilbury’s 30-shade-strong foundation is infused with skincare ingredients and leaves skin looking like skin. For an overnight treatment that works wonders on thirsty skin, Elemis’s Midnight Facial is magic. And if you have parched hair, Aveda’s super-hydrating masques will make a difference immediately. Anyone who uses eyelash curlers will dump them after trying Maybelline’s Colossal Curl Bounce. Cerave Micellar Water – chock-full of niacinamide (great for pigmentation issues) and nourishing ceramides – cleanses skin without stripping it. I also love Inkey List’s new cleanser – the hyaluronic continues to work post rinsing off. Genius. Most eye creams are useless, Tata Harper’s, however – reformulated to tackle puffy eyes and dark circles – is worth a shot. To combat winter’s moisture-depleting powers, use Keys Soulcare Body Balm. For a sensuous, comforting and, dare I say it, sexy scent, I cannot recommend Jo Malone London’s Velvet Rose and Oud highly enough. Look I’m not saying healthy skin, fluttery lashes and skin health, smelling nice and having fluttery lashes will cure the world of January blues – but it will bring an element of joy. Happy New Year.
