Whats in our August beauty bag

These are the new products we’ve been using at FF mag HQ this month. Edited by Melanie Pike.

L’unico Essential Beauty Pack

Researched and developed by an Australian compounding chemist, this anti-ageing skincare pack does everything it says on the box. My 40-year-old skin had the pleasure of testing the range, which was instantly absorbed and left no residue. After 2 weeks of use morning and night my skin was hydrated, had an even tone and smooth texture. Included in the pack are: Youth Essence Day Cream, Regenerative Neuropeptide Night Formula, Neuropeptide Firming Eye Therapy and High Potency 30% Vitamin C Serum.

Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment 

Because lips lack the same protective outer layers of skin as your face (5 layers of skin on your lips vs 16 on your face) they’re prone to drying out, especially in the cold winter months. This overnight treatment from Dermalogica’s AGE smart range is designed to treat your lips while you sleep. In the morning you’ll awake with hydrated, smoothed lips with improved elasticity and reduced feather lines around the edges.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 

If you’re someone with little patience when it comes to drying nail polish, this range is for you. A thicker brush allows for super-fast, easy application while the new Argan Oil formula means two coats is all you need for a beautiful opaque finish.

A girl’s night out requires heavy duty backup. The Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara is armed with a seriously impressive brush to instantly apply generous layers of volume to your lashes. Surprisingly, even with a thick application there is little clumping and almost no fallout. This product also has great longevity, with the shake to refresh tube ensuring the formula remains smooth and applicable. A great product for great lashes.
