Before the pandemic, the beauty industry had already been growing at break-neck speed, with new launches dropping every single day of the week. But after over a year of forgoing makeup (if you’ve still been wearing foundation every day, we seriously applaud you) and focusing on the status of our skin, the skin-care sector in particular positively exploded. From new launches and collaborations to the recent influx of celebrity skin-care lines like J.Lo and Alicia Keys, it’s become hard to keep track all of the latest and greatest, as well as what’s actually available here in the UK without paying exorbitant shipping fees. Well, that’s where we come in. Every month, we round up the most exciting skin-care launches coming to the UK, from classic brands to indie newcomers and all the serums, creams, and sunscreens in between.
May 2021 is an exciting month, and not just because on the 17th pubs and restaurant will reopen for indoor dining (at reduced capacity of course). Whether you love skin care or you’re looking to finally put together a skin-care regime of your own, you’ll be interested to check out our list, which includes a mineral sunscreen from chicer-than-chic Australian brand Grown Alchemist (a first for the brand), and aromatherapy fake-tan face mists from industry innovator Isle of Paradise — two products that double as sensorial beauty experiences, a trend that got its start whilst we were all in lockdown.
