New: Sarah Chapman - Percy&Reed - R+Co - Burberry - Juicy Couture

It’s been a while since I last did a post on my ‘top picks’ of new launches – 6 weeks to be exact (that’s a sabbatical!) It wasn’t intentional or particularly planned, and it certainly wasn’t down to a lack of exciting new beauty launches to talk about. It’s simply that there was a quick succession of events happening which I wanted to write up on my blog – Space NK’s new mould breaking brands, Shiffa founder interview, Anti-ageing Health & Beauty Show and so on.

But ‘top picks’ is back today with a collection of products which I hope you’ll find interesting – I’ve tried to keep it a bit varied. First up we have a selection from Space NK. It’s Double Points time for Space NK’s N.Dulge loyalty card holders, until midnight this Sunday (if you’re not a member do join – it’s a fab scheme!). What perfect timing, I thought, for a round-up of upcoming arrivals. This is all stuff that you can currently pre-order. Following that is a new BB cream from Burberry and a new fragrance from Juicy Couture.

 Space NK – Sarah Chapman Spot Stickers

New from Sarah Chapman are Spot Stickers, invisible stickers infused with pimple healing ingredients that you apply directly. I think these are incredibly novel. You pop them on a spot and leave them there to work their magic as you go about your day.  They are formulated with salicylic acid, P Refinyl, retinol-like Sytenol A and vitamin C. This cocktail of actives releases over time to help calm and reduce redness, decongest and speed up spot recovery.

Priced £19 for 16 stickers, they come in a signature Sarah Chapman Skinesis wallet. Pre-order now, with dispatch expected 13th June. More info here.

Space NK - Percy & Reed Invisible Dry Shampoo

Billed as a new breakthrough formula, this dry shampoo is said to spray on completely clear so that it’s totally undetectable on scalp or in hair. That is music to my ears! I’m a massive dry shampoo addict (how else would I get away with washing my hair just twice a week!) but most brands do leave a white powdery residue if you spray too liberally or too close to the scalp.

This Percy & Reed formula is also said to absorb excess oil whilst building volume at the roots. Priced £12 for 150ml, it is available to pre-order now, with dispatch expected 18th June. More info here .

Space NK – R+Co Haircare Collection

My final top pick from the upcoming Space NK arrivals is R+Co. This is a completely new range of haircare and styling products, available exclusively to Space NK right now. I attended last month’s event in London to mark the launch and was wowed by the R+Co selection previewed. Check out my review of the Bel Air shampoo and conditioner here.

We now have full pricing details for the products, which start at £18 for the One Prep Spray and go up to £27 each for the Death Valley Dry Shampoo and  Outer Space Flexible Hairspray (such inventive product names). Available to pre-order now, with dispatch expected today! More info here.

Burberry - Fresh Glow BB Cream

Moving away from Space NK, but sticking with a luxury brand, Burberry has just launched a new beauty balm. A follow-up to its Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base, Fresh Glow BB Cream fuses makeup with skincare to minimise imperfections without hiding and to moisturise without weight.  It features the brand’s signature English blend (rosehip, lavender and tea extract) to moisturise and boost hydration.  

There are 2 formulas: a skin perfecting balm with SPF 20 offering sheer coverage with a dewy finish; and a  skin correcting balm with SPF 30  and PA +++ (broad spectrum UVA/UVB), offering a medium coverage with a skin enhancing finish.  The former is available in 3 shades (Fair No.01, Medium No.02 and Dark No. 03) and the latter in 2 (Nude Rose No.01 and Nude Honey No.02). They cost £30 for 30ml. Available now from Burberry.com, Burberry stores and selected retailers. More info here.

Juicy Couture – Viva La Juicy Gold Couture

Viva La Juicy was a real favourite of mine last year (and was it also the year before, oh gosh, my memory!). I do remember that I first got a free sample with a Debenhams order and that was it - I was hooked. Anyway, Juicy Couture has reinvented the fragrance for a new scent, which it describes as even more decadent than the original!

It features top notes of wild berry, a floral heart of honeysuckle and jasmine and mellows with vanilla and sandalwood. It’s housed in the classic Viva La Juicy bottle, brought up-to-date with a melted gold and hot pink couture embossed nameplate. Priced at £35 or 30ml, £48 for 50ml and £65 for 100ml, Viva La Juicy Gold Couture will be on counter nationwide from August. Info on Juicy Couture here.
