Q+A – Azelaic Acid Balancing Serum
Sarah describes this serum as a hydrating serum that’s known for calming inflammation. Great for dry skin types.
LiB Tip: Use this in the morning, under makeup, to calm redness while also brightening your complexion.
Herlum – Sandalwood & Grapefruit Hand & Body Lotion
Sarah describes this as an uplifting joy in a (chic) bottle.
LiB Tip: Massage the lotion for a luxurious hand or foot massage.
Clinisoothe+ – Skin Purifier
“A skincare spray that can be spritzed throughout the day to protect from pollutants.”
LiB Tip: Keep it in your handbag to protect your skin from urban pollution all day and help reduce inflammation.
The Inkey List – Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Scrub
“Don’t you just love the Inkey List for calling it what it is? It’s time to attack scalp build-up from a season of sweating under your bucket hat.”
LiB Tip: Use it with a scalp brush to help boost blood circulation to your scalp.
Navy Professional – Cuticle Balm
Impressed with the brand’s effective line of products, Sarah highly recommends Navy Professional for your nail care needs.
“I have been so impressed with Navy Professional since this Yorkshire-based nail tool company appeared on my radar.”
LiB Tip: Take a little extra time to gently massage the balm to each cuticle for deep nourishment, especially for rough cuticles.
Bumble and bumble – Heat Shield Thermal Protection Mist
“Think of your hair in the same way that you think of your skin. You wouldn’t sunbathe without applying SPF, so you shouldn’t heat style without protecting hair first.”
LiB Tip: Apply the mist in various sections of your hair and gently comb through to evenly distribute the product.
Bare By Vogue Williams – Face Tanning Mist in Light, Medium or Dark
“Spending aeons on top to toe? Why would you? Waste that time in the summer months, because now is all about last-minute bronzing the bits you can see.”
LiB Tip: Be sure to exfoliate before applying the face tanning mist so you get a smooth, even finish.
Elemis – Sensitive Soothing Milk
“A delicate moisturiser designed for sensitive skin and to reduce redness. As well as for everyday use, it’s a gem straight after high-strength acids or peels.”
LiB Tip: Apply the moisturiser on damp or freshly misted skin to help lock in moisture.
Supergoop! – (Re) Setting Powder SPF30
“Takes down shine, keeps make-up in place and gives you on-the-go sun protection.”
LiB Tip: You can easily apply this on your scalp to protect it from sun damage.
M·A·C – M·A·CStack Mascara
Sarah describes this as an exceptional mascara.
“The wand is more of a slick comb that separates, stretches and lifts, and the product doesn’t clump or harden. You can layer and build to your heart’s content — a feast for the eyes.”
LiB Tip: For fuller lashes and to boost volume, wiggle the mascara in a zig zag motion from the root to the tip of your lashes.
Virtue – Recovery Shampoo
“Infused with the brand’s signature protein blend, Alpha Keratin 60ku, which fills cracks in the cuticle in damaged parts of your hair leaving it stronger. Hydrating baobab seed oil and strengthening quinoa protein help to bring brittle hair back from the brink.”
LiB Tip: For dry, damaged or colour-treated hair, we recommend incorporating this shampoo into your hair care routine and use it at least once a week.
KVD Beauty – Tattoo Pencil Liner in Violet Hematite
Sarah describes KVD Beauty as a brand that develops products with unrivalled longevity. Plus the brand is 100% vegan.
LiB Tip: To give an illusion of fuller lashes, fill in any gaps between your lashes and eyeliner.
Ruby Hammer – Lip Serum Balm in Red or FX
Sarah describes this lip serum balm as the opposite of stamped-on, fussy lipstick.
“They are sheer and balmy and require no mirror or precision when applied. The Red can revive any lip colour that’s looking a bit worn out and FX is a transparent balm that, well, works as a balm.”
LiB Tip: Prep your lips well before applying any lip product to ensure a smooth application.
Charlotte Tilbury – Matte Revolution Pillow Talk Lipstick
“Charlotte Tilbury is the favourite for an opaque, matte (not flat) finish.”
LiB Tip: To prevent your lips from feeling dry, make sure to apply lip balm before applying your lipstick.
Urban Decay – All Nighter Setting Spray
“It’s lightweight, oil-free and non-clogging.”
LiB Tip: For optimal application, spray in an X and T-formation to ensure you cover your entire face.
