This Week’s Beauty Hits and Misses


Summer Scenting
Summer arrived early this week both in terms of the weather and the fragrance! We’ve got new scents from YSLStella McCartneyCalvin Klein and more to see you through until the end of the season.

Get Tangoed
Tangerine Tango is Pantone’s Colour of the Year, an energetic reddish orange that is the ideal hue for spring/summer. Get the look with the brand new Dior Addict Extreme Lip Colour in Riviera, and the matching nail colour.

Clever Bronzers
Gone are the days when bronzer only came in one shade. Today there’s a whole host of hues for all skin tones and types, including this brand new release from Guerlain: the four shade strong Terracotta Sheer Bronzing Powder.

Beauty Boasters
It has been hard to escape news of THAT Samantha Brick article this week, and it’s got us talking. While we enjoy opinion pieces, the spectacle, the generalisation and the overstatement made it a complete miss.

Snow Joke
We’re still holding fast to the tail end of the mini heat wave that occurred over the weekend here at Escentual HQ, but like the rest of the country we’re anticipating the dreaded snow. Prepare your skin for the inevitable with the Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado, Olive and Basil Body Butter.

Ultra Sensitive Skin
If your skin is hypersensitive and you’re afraid to use anything on it, it can be a nightmare trying to calm and soothe it adequately. La Roche-Posay has the answer: Toleriane Ultra Intense Soothing Care, a minimalist formulation with a special dispenser that eliminates bacteria.
