It used to be the case that if you wanted to get your hands on some of the beauty industry's most lusted after products, you might have to look further than your local Boots. Annoyingly, many of beautys most-mentioned, cult brands were discovered, and stocked up on, by those in-the-know on trips to foreign shores. Now, some of those brands are heading to the UK, which means we can all give them a try without booking ourselves a return flight to NY. Heres ELLEs need-to-know on the brands and products to try this autumnMore
A household name down under, the Natio beauty range is sold in over 2000 stores across Australia. Now it’s arriving in the UK (there are 212 products just launched in Debenhams nationwide and online) and already has British beauty insiders and bloggers falling over themselves to give it their expert seal of approval. Why? Natio fuses natural ingredients with scientific methods to deliver products that really work, but don’t cost the earth. To help you navigate their vast product range including hair, skincare, bodycare and make-up, we recommend the radiance- boosting Glow Skin Brightening Face Balm, £13, and the Natio Wellness Body Gloss, £14 which contains shea butter and vitamin e to moisturise, and pomegranate to protect – it leaves a healthy sheen to the skin too.
Working in much the same way as an electric tooth brush – but for the skin - the Clarisonic Skincare Brush, £146.81, vibrates at a frequency of more than 300 movements per second, for a cleanse that is twice as effective as washing your face by hand. It was launched in the states five years ago and has a fan list that reads like a roll-call of the top American beauty journalists and editors. ‘It removes everything,’ Nicky Kinnaird, founder of Space NK and new British stockist of the Clarisonic explains. ‘It also allows all of your precious serums and creams to penetrate much better.’ The deep cleanse over time is also known to even out skin tone and prevents blemishes and break-outs.
