Sol de Janeiro Rio Radiance Body SPF 50, £32

"Just in time for summer comes Sol de Janeiro’s first foray into body SPFs and my goodness they are lovely. There are three consistencies to choose from, an oil, a spray but I have really been enjoying the lotion. Not only does it have a lovely balmy consistency that’s not sticky or greasy and sinks in effortlessly but it smells amazing (as you would expect from a brand that’s known for its scents) - this has the brand’s iconic Cheriosa 87 which is a blend of tuberose and coconut. It also has a level of shimmer that’s just right, not too glittery but just enough shimmer to make your skin look more alive. If you have tweens or teens in your life, be prepared for them to steal this but if any brand can make them want to apply SPF then it’s going to be Sol de Janeiro."


Sundae Pomegranate Fizz Whipped Shower Foam, £10.95

"This is another buy you may have to share with the tween or teen in your life, but if it gets them showering without complaint maybe that’s no hardship? It is a shower foam that not only looks like a whipped cream can but the product comes out looking identical too. That’s where the similarity ends as there are 12 flavours to choose from each in a different aesthetically pleasing shade but I’ve been enjoying this candy pink pomegranate scent and it laters up beautifully and doesn’t leave skin feeling tight or dry. If you want to bring a bit of fun and joy to your daily shower then this is a great way to do it."


Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Dew Balm SPF 30, £27

"I seem to have chosen another brand that’s a hit with the teens (am I having some sort of skincare-related midlife crisis?!), but it’s a goodie. While I wouldn’t use this as my main face SPF as I'm not sure you'd get the even coverage, it's brilliant for on-the-go touchups. The balm texture sinks into the skin so it doesn’t leave a greasy residue on the skin and it does, as the name suggests, leave skin looking glowy and dewy thanks to containing hydrating hyaluronic acid and squalane."


Slip Zodiac Collection, £60

"Meet the latest addition to my sleep mask collection - this gorgeous 100 per cent mulberry silk that is illustrated with the best zodiac sign of all, Pisces. I’ve always been a huge fan of Slip products (they do brilliant silk pillowcases) as the masks feel gorgeous to wear, block out all light (essential in summer) and stay where they should all night. Available in all the other star signs I think it would make a great gift. Who doesn’t want to be given the tool to help them have a better night's sleep after all."


Ingeborg van Lotringen, GTG Contributing Beauty Editor

Awvi The Skin Biotic, £58

"The idea of improving your skin not just with skincare but with targeted skincare supplements alongside is really taking off, and AWvi is a brand integrates the two as standard. To them, feeding and balancing your good skin bacteria is the answer to all your skin issues, and I’ve certainly managed to calm down a bad case of inflammation by using their probiotic serum and cream alongside this supplement. It comes as 30 tiny powder sachets packed with skin-loving bacterial strains, vitamin A and biotin; to my surprise it’s not remotely disgusting and just tastes mildly sweet. you just tip one in your mouth before breakfast to give your skin what it needs to thrive and regenerate."


Victoria Beckham Feather Fix Liquid Lifting Brow Gel, £30

"I love a tinted brow gel, and this is the chicest yet. It’s a pretty strong formula in that it really shapes and sets like a strong-hold gel, so if you have trouble taming your brows or, conversely, want an ‘untamed’ look that lasts, this product is for you. It’s waterproof (although I always take that with a pinch of salt; I’m not sure it will survive a shower or a swim in the sea) and comes in five good shades that look entirely natural. The brush (it’s more like a little comb) is tiny which I love, but quite hard and scratchy on the skin when you rake it through, so that would be my only criticism."


Ffern Summer EdP, £89

"This brand blends up a perfume every three months to celebrate the new season, and Summer ‘24 has to be my favourite so far. All-organic and created in Somerset, it captures a day in the Tuscan Hills but smells even hotter and more far-flung, with strong hints of nutmeg, patchouli and vetiver. There’s also blood orange, mandarin and grapefruit, a load of herbs (fennel, coriander, bay), and heady champaca flower: you could almost be in India. Definitely one for sultry evenings."


Gem Triple Whitening Toothpaste in Marshmallow, £9

"Yes, we live in a world were even our toothpaste has to be ready for its photo op. I found the thought of a marshmallow-flavoured toothpaste with the colour of pepto-bismol pretty revolting but it’s actually quite nice to use, and its USP is that it looks after your oral microbiome which is definitely a good thing. So instead of nuking your mouth with sodium lauryl sulfate which kills all bacteria (including the good ones) dead, it has sodium bicarb to clean and silica to polish and whiten. Then there’s hydroxyapatite which strengthens enamel and lowers sensitivity, and probiotics to make you mouth even more microbe-tastic. And you though dental care was boring."

MZ Skin Expert UV Protector SPF50, £110

"Think of this as the only thing you need to put on your skin (that will help mentally justify the price tag)and has been created by leading oculoplastic surgeon Dr Maryam Zamani who seriously knows her stuff. And as you would expect from such a high-level expert this SPF 50 is next-level good. As well as supersonic UVB and UVA protection this complex formulation includes a stem cell extract derived from Arabian cotton to protect against free radicals. It’s a lightweight, soothing and hydrating cream and easy to apply under or over makeup as it leaves no white cast either so works for all skin types and tones."


Kora Organics Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum, £76

"Kora Organics is the creation of Australian model Miranda Kerr who recognised the need for science-led, toxin-free skincare following her mother’s cancer diagnosis when she was 16.  What’s brilliant about the range, is the high-level, science-led clinical performance and testing.  New to the range is this stable and effective vitamin C serum formulated to rejuvenate dull skin and blast away dark spots. They’ve sourced a powerful vitamin C from kakadu plum and acerola cherry plus hyaluronic acid for hydration. Use in the morning and expect to see results in a few weeks."


Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus* Daily Defense Moisturiser SPF 35, £74

"Having been a long-time fan of the original Cold Plasma moisturiser, I am thrilled that it's now available with added SPF 35. It’s lightweight and quickly absorbs leaving a soft primer-like base that works seamlessly under foundation or powder. The hydration lasts all day, with vitamin C and a complex formulation to reduce fine lines, uneven texture, redness and enlarged pores.   This is my powerhouse cream and now with the additional SPF 35 protection is a one-pot-wonder and worth every penny."


Charlotte Tilbury Cosmic Power Perfume, £130

"Charlotte Tilbury's new fragrance collection (there are six to choose from) has been formulated with emotion-boosting molecules to help our brains conjure up emotions. I’ve been wafting around in the Cosmic Power scent which is a spicy, amber number with dark rose, warm musk and cinnamon. This one is all about empowerment and unshakable self-confidence and I've felt great wearing it. The jewel-toned glass bottles are embossed with cosmic symbolism, numerology and crystal healing and the juice inside helps evoke different emotions.  A gorgeous range, which make a great gift too."


Victoria Woodhall, GTG Editorial Director

Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser SPF15, £60

"If you watched The Crown or Bridgerton, those flawless complexions were in no small part down to Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation, loved by screen makeup artists for creating a porcelain canvas that withstands the scrutiny of HD and the glare of studio lights. For an everyday look for non-movie stars, meet Future Skin’s little sister, Just Skin, a tinted moisturiser that gives more coverage than the name suggests. It has just been relaunched with a cleaner formula, free from silicones and microplastics and with added plant extracts for hydration and line-smoothing. My shade is the medium-light Vanilla for summer and because my skin is dry, I put it over my regular moisturiser and then catch myself in the mirror thinking it’s all me! It comes in 12 stretchy shades from the palest Opaline to deep warm Mahogany."


No1 De Chanel Revitalising Eye Serum, was £78 now £66.30 on Boots

"If you have dark circles, puffy eyes and crow's feet, you’ll love this eye serum with its cooling metal roller wand. It’s hard to spend time working  in an eye cream as the skin is so fragile, but the nifty roller does it for you and refreshes and de-creases your eyes at the same time. No. 1 de Chanel is the brand’s refillable range with the hero ingredient of red camellia extract (hence the red bottle) that has skin-renewing benefits. It’s gentle and unscented, for those plagued with summer eye sensitivities. I spied it for £13 off in Boots."


Green People  SPF15 Sun Cream with Insect Repellent, £30

"Green People’s organic suncare range is on fire this year and if you have a sun sensitivity, or a child to slather; or if you’re are a mosquito bite magnet like me, or you like to work out outdoors, then there’s something in the Green People Sun Protection range for you. I’ve just recommended the Scent-Free SPF 30 broad-spectrum sun cream to someone who suffers from prickly heat and heat rashes. If you have eczema this will work for you too. As the one member of my family who always gets bitten, I welcome this deet-free insect repellent that has a bit of SPF too for the end of the day when the rays are less fierce but the critters are out. The organic  Self Tan, £27 body lotion is excellent too."


Charlotte Tilbury Unreal Skin Sheer Glow Tint, £35

"Last month in Glossy Picks, I reviewed Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Balm foundation and was loving the stick format for easy application. Barely have I blinked than Charlotte Tilbury has a new balmy complexion stick too. While the ABH one is a little pricier and veers towards matte, Tilbury’s stick glides on without being thick and has such a glow that I mistook it for a highlighter or a primer. It goes on very sheer and comes in 20 shades. I particularly like the way it covers my dark circles, adding a touch of Touche Éclat light-reflecting vibes. I like a bit of shiny face, and this obliged. Lightweight and leakproof, it’s one for your summer handbag."
