August brought us skyrocketing temperatures and an incredible selection of new beauty launches that were too good to resist – so good, in fact, most of them made their way all the way into your shopping baskets. And, as we know there’s no one better than you when it comes to a knack for spotting the best in new beauty, so there’s no opinion we’d trust more than yours. We’ve looked at the sales from August, and the numbers speak for themselves; these are the top ten bestsellers from August…
1. The Solar Fragrance
Alien Goddess fans have awarded our top ten bestsellers spot to the new Thierry Mugler Alien Goddess Intense Eau de Parfum. Like the original Alien Goddess scent, the Intense version has a warm solar character with softer coconut and fruity, sun cream lotion vibe than the original; this time it’s laced with even more vanilla and jasmine with a deeper more sophisticated edge. The Escentual team thinks the Intense version smells similar to Libre Intense, so if you like that, you’ll like this perfume, too!
2. The Luxe Powder Foundation
The Dior Velvet Compact Foundation has taken the second spot in our August bestseller list. The premium formula is made with 90% natural origin ingredients and delivers a matte finish that stays put for up to 24 hours. The silky powder is weightless, letting your skin breathe while offering a natural to full coverage. Not only does it make your skin look flawless after applying but it also takes care of it while you wear it thanks to a formula enriched with floral skincare.
3. The Volumising Eyebrow Pencil
Benefit is no stranger to achieving bestseller status for their brow launches, so we weren’t surprised to see Benefit Gimme Brow + Volumising Pencil in the August bestselling lineup. The dual-ended brow pencil is the perfect choice for anyone struggling with sparse brows who wants to achieve a fuller look. One end of the pencil features a spoolie for styling and shaping brows, while the other holds the brow pencil which features a formula with hair-like fibres with 12 hours of the waterproof and transfer-proof finish.
4. The Overnight Exfoliator
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm fans snapped up the skincare partner to their favourite glowy balm. The Flash peel is an overnight exfoliator that works together with the iconic Beauty Flash Balm as a two-step routine to glowier, younger skin. The formula works to smooth and brighten skin by removing dead skin cells using glycolic and salicylic acid.
5. The Anti-Dandruff Haircare Range
You’ve all been loving the new Klorane Galangal collection, which is made for dandruff-prone scalps struggling with flaking or itching. The range features the Klorane Galangal Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and the Klorane Galangal Exfoliating Mask for Flaky Scalp; a two-step routine where you exfoliate your scalp and wash your hair.
6. The Fresh Fragrance
Ralph Lauren Ralph’s Club Parfum has topped the bestseller list this month. The latest addition to the Raph’s Club collection, the Parfum is stronger concentration than the original Eau de Parfum version. Fans of the original will recognise its fresh, cool, and earthy tone with its distinctly ultra-masculine feel.
7. The Anti-Pigment Serum
Eucerin is famous for its anti-pigment skincare, so we weren’t surprised that you’re loving the Eucerin Anti-Pigment Skin Perfecting Serum. Formulated over 10 years of research this serum is worth the wait with a serum infused with their patented thiamidol ingredient that helps to reduce visible hyperpigmentation. The innovative serum work to smooth and hydrate hyaluronic acid and glycerin.
8. The Niche Rose Scent
Parfums de Marly Delina fans have been loving pre-ordering the 30ml version and we can see why; a collector’s dream, the Delina 30ml is a miniature version of the full-size bottle and is perfect for taking on your travels.
9. DIOR Rouge Dior Forever Lipstick
DIOR has added yet another bestseller to the August bestseller list. The 16-hour wear lipstick delivers ultra-pigmented matte colour while it nourishes and hydrates your lips thanks to its formula which is infused in floral lip care; plus its transfer resistant.
10. The White Floral Scent
Issey Miyake fragrance always proves popular with you and the Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau & Magnolia Eau de Toilette Intense Spray isn’t about to buck the trend and has made it to August’s bestseller list. The luminous floral scent mimics the pureness of sunkissed dew left atop the petals of a magnolia flower.
