The Daily Beauty Report (27.11.14)

Here is what is happening in the beauty world at the moment, I warn you now it is fairly weighty in fragrance releases...

A new Korean skincare brand will hit the UK in 2015! "Korean skincare brand Racinne has announced the launch of Delicare Perfection Series, a new skincare range built around new skincare ingredient: delisens, a hexapeptide with a unique ability to calm sensitive skin by interrupting the chemical pathway that provokes inflammatory reactions. Products soothe the skin and reduce redness, itching and burning. In addition, the Delicare series contains natural ingredients, including: shea butter to heal, squalene and panthenol to hydrate and moisturise, and caffeine to reduce puffiness."

In my opinion this brand just screams NYC cool and really appeals to me! "US men's boutique and lifestyle brand ODIN New York has introduced The White Line, a new unisex trio of fragrances. Each scent is constructed through using the rose, citrus and green fragrance families. The collection comprises: Efflora, containing top notes of Algerian tangerin, neroli blossom and Turkish rose oil, heart notes of geranium, lavender, grapefruit flower and sambac absolute, and a base of oakwood absolute, vetiver, patchouli, white moss and sandalwood; Milieu Rosa, comprising top notes of Moroccan rose absolute, raspberry, cassis and mimosa and heart notes of rose de mai, geranium, jasmine, litsea cubeba oil, while Turkish rose otto, amber woods, oak leaves and vetiver are at the base; and Vert Reseda, with top notes of mountain galbanum, reseda flower leaves, heart notes of wild peony, watery gardenia and a base of white incense and sandalwood." They will launch this month exclusive to Liberty.

Not a brand I am at all familiar with but doesn't this sound lovely. It is a March 2015 launch which trust me will be here sooner rather than later. "Bath and body brand Mitchell and Peach has announced the launch of English Leaf, a new fragrance added to its skincare and established fragrance line, Flora No 1. The green floral scent comprises top notes of tomato leaves, blackcurrant, soft citrus, cherry and apple blossom; heart notes of green leaves, aromatic herbs, garden mint and lavender; and a base of cedar wood. To accompany the fragrance, a Handcream, Body Cream and Bath oil will be available encompassing the same scent."

With the festive period on the horizon who isn't on the lookout for a highlighting product? "Cosmetic brand Ellis Faas has announced the launch of Glow Up Highlighter, with finely milled particles that provide a radiant flow and soft focus shimmer. Micronisation Technology leaves skin velvet-smooth while reflective pearls emphasise bone structure. The product contains vitamin E to help protect the skin and is available in three shades. No parabens and oils are used in the product, and it's not tested on animals. The highlighter is designed to slot into its compact case with built in mirror, sold separately." This will launch on the 1st of December and cost £18 and £8 respectively.

A new fragrance launch from Shay and Blue arrives on the 1st of March. All of Shay & Blue fragrances are truly divine so I can not see this being any different. "Boutique perfumery Shay & Blue has announced the launch of new scent Watermelons. This fresh-green vetiver fragrance is hand-filled into smoked blue glass bottles in its East London workshop. Top notes comprise watermelon and green mandarin, with notes of honeysuckle, crushed leaves and green tea at the heart, and vetiver grasses at the base."

I'm not sure how I feel about borrowing a nail polish but I have to agree it is a great concept in the battle against waste! "Coloristiq is the UK's first, multi-brand online rental service for nail polish. The service allows members to set a wish list from a wide collection of salon quality nail polishes including Essie, OPI, China Glaze and Morgan Taylor. Three nail polishes will be sent to each member who can use them for nine paintings (three per bottle) for a month. Once the bottles are returned for free, the next three shades will be delivered. Coloristiq, founded by Julita Lange, was born out of the frustration of women who like painting their nails at home and would like to have access to professional nail polish without wasting full bottles that dry up and need throwing away. The monthly fee for the service is £14.49."

Have a lovely evening everyone.
