New: Temple Spa, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, L'Occitane, By Terry




There are fewer than 90 days until Christmas. Yikes! Given the plethora of Christmas beauty gifts launching just now, that shouldn't be all that surprising. Indeed, two new advent calendars feature in my pick of the best new product launches this week - it’s been a while since I last did one of these round-up posts! But I start with a new Temple Spa skincare range.
 

Temple Spa – Red Carpet Skin Therapy Miracles




I was totally wowed by Temple’s Spa Eye Truffle when I tested it in February, review here. Next Friday (10 October) sees Temple Spa launching a brand new skincare range, Red Carpet Skin Therapy Miracles. This complexion fixing line of products includes a glycolic resurfacing peel, an ‘instant’ wrinkle filler, concealers and an ‘instant’ radiance booster.  A trio of nail polishes is also launching as part of the range – in red, black and lilac (judging by the picture). Pricing has yet to be revealed. More info here.

Harvey Nichols & Selfridges – Advent Calendars

Selfridges calendar (L) and Harvey Nichols (R)

We’re going to be a bit spoilt for choice when it comes to beauty advent calendars this year. Barely a week goes by without a new one launching. OK, perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration but there does seem to be more of them around than ever before –  Elemis, L’Occitane, and Jo Malone are all doing calendars this year.  

Joining the fray is Harvey Nichols, which has announced a collaboration with Glossybox to launch its limited edition Christmas box. Brands featured (I’ll refrain from revealing actual products in case you’d rather not know) include Laura Mercier, NARS, Rodial and Dermalogica. At £30 (+p&p) the Harvey Nichols box is a bargain in my opinion – products are collectively worth over £150! I suspect it will sell out extremely quickly. Available from 17 November at glossybox.co.uk.

Selfridges has also launched its 2014 calendar. Brands featured include Lancome, Yves Saint Laurent, Kiehl’s and Victor & Rolf. The Selfridges calendar is always massively popular, though it has stiffer competition this year. Also at £85.50, it’s pricey compared to the Harvey Nics.  You can sign up for it here.  

 

L’Occitane Whipped Shea Butter Collection


To celebrate 25 years of using fair trade shea butter from women’s co-operatives in Burkina Faso, L’Occitane has announced a new bodycare collection. The Whipped Shea Butter line includes shower foam (£14), hand cream (£8) and body cream (£18). The hand cream (pictured) features a star shaped nozzle to create the look of Chantilly cream when product is squeezed from the tube – nice touch! The collection will be available later this month at stores nationwide. More info here.

By Terry – Terrybly Densiliss Collection


Following last year’s launch of Terrybly Densiliss Foundation, By Terry has now expanded the range to include a primer (£78), a matt finish concealer (£44), a compact (£65) and a blush (£52), as well as four new shades of the foundation. By Terry is perhaps my favourite make-up brand. Yes the products are a little pricey but the formulas come with a heap of anti-ageing ingredients to lift and plump, as well as protect and repair skin. A particular favourite of mine is Touche Expert Advanced concealer. The new range is available now at Space NK here, and will arrive at Harrods later in the year.

    1. They're such a great way to try out stuff you perhaps wouldn't otherwise consider. Often you can stumble across some surprising gems. Tx

  7. HOW MUCH for that primer??? Good grief. You could nearly have a whole Selfridges calendar for that.

    1. It's pricey but the whole By Terry range infuses skincare with makeup, and skincare tends to be more expensive. It's a premium brand but yes the Selfridges calendar comparatively is very good value, as are most of the calendars. Perhaps why I love them so much ;) Tx

  8. Goodness, it's a lot of new launches! All products are quite expensive. I don't mind paying for skincare, but it's unlikely I would pay £75 for a primer! :) Where do you get all this info from, Tracey!? You are so up-to-date!

    1. I do so love By Terry though, but as it's pricey I do save up and buy only when Space NK has its event days. That way I get a lovely goodie back to cushion the blow on my purse, ha ha! Lots of lovely launches last week yes. I guess it means I've been spending too long scouring the Internet again for new stuff :( Tx
