Keep scrolling to find some BEAUTY BAY staff-approved favourites to add to your next beauty haul.

Nudestix Nudies Bloom in Tiger Lily Queen

“I was super eager to purchase from Nudestix so when I heard BEAUTY BAY was launching the brand I was thrilled! My first purchase was the Nudies Bloom in Tiger Lily Queen. Firstly, this colour is not as intense as it looks; so, if the vibrance of the colour is putting you off the purchase, do not let it! The shade is the most perfect sheer coral with a pinky undertone, perfect for an addition to that summer glow – or to fake it! I am obsessed with that no makeup, makeup look, and this scores all the points for adding a dewy glow to your skin. This product is not just for the cheeks but can also be applied to add a wash of colour to your lips whilst adding hydration. I have certainly developed a brand obsession and will be purchasing one of every product – the formula, shades available and ease of application makes them a must-have for that travel bag.”

Gallinee Prebiotic Face Mask & Scrub

“I love an exfoliating mask but have never found a great face scrub until now! Gallinee’s Prebiotic Face Mask & Scrub a great multitasker, packed full of vitamins and gentle on the skin.  It leaves my face feeling super fresh, smooth, bright  and moisturised. I have quite dry but breakout prone skin so have to be careful what I use and this mask is now one of my weekly’s. Also I LOVE a pre-biotic product, great for restoring your skins natural defences!”

– Ellie, Social Media Manager

Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil

“If there’s one brand that’s made a huge difference to my skin, its Aurelia. Although they’re new to BEAUTY BAY, i’ve actually been investing into this brand for over five years. I’ve tried many of their products and not one of them has ever let my skin down. My current fave is their Cell Repair Night Oil which is now part of my night time ritual, paired with my Skin Gym Gua Sha. I used to be scared of oils, especially when my acne flares up, but this non greasy oil made such a difference to my face! My skin is super hydrated & glowy in the mornings, & the lines around my eyes have more or less gone. Did I mention it smells like a dream, the aromatic oils send you into your deepest sleep. 100% re-buying, worth every penny!”

Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

“As someone who regularly colours my hair, hydration is key for me to achieve that nourished, smooth glossy finish – enter the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, the solution to all hair dilemmas. The beauty of this mask is the multi-ingredient properties, filled with an abundance of natural ingredients, application will result in silky, renewed locks with a mirror shine – the hair of dreams. You can either use the mask as a regular conditioning treatment, applying after shampoo and leaving for 5-10 mins for a quick hydration fix. Alternatively, if you are in need of a deep intense repair, you can apply to clean hair, wrap in a reusable plastic cap and leave on for 30 mins, allowing a perfect opportunity for a face mask – the ultimate necessities for a self-care moment.”

By BEAUTY BAY Me, Myself and Mitchell Pressed Pigment Palette

“I’m very new to make up but as soon as I first held the By BEAUTY BAY Me, Myself and Mitchell Palette, I was OBSESSED. It felt like getting a new vinyl, the packaging is exquisite and the pans are huge, the addition of a double sided mirror that clips into the palette is a spectacular design. Each shade is SO pigmented I’ve been using it more and more and it’s helping to grow my confidence in wearing make-up. It really gets me excited to open it up and try something new every time.”

– Lewis, Senior Videographer

ZOEVA Authentik Skin Foundation

“Let me tell you, lockdown breakouts are REAL and my usual, sheer coverage foundation is just not cutting it for me any more. I’d heard good things about the ZOEVA Authentik Skin Foundation and the shade range is really impressive, so I decided to give it a go. I chose the shade Brave which is a really good match for my yellow undertones. The foundation itself is exactly what I was looking for – not too heavy, a buildable, medium coverage, and gives my skin a subtle radiance that makes it look healthy and fresh. I can be oily (particularly in hot weather) and this stayed in place all day without transferring or caking, which is the main thing I look for in a foundation. It’s my new favourite for skin that looks like skin, whilst still managing to hide my breakouts and scarring.”

Dr Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Colour Correcting Solution

“I have been wearing Dr Jart’s Cicapair Tiger Grass Colour Correcting Solution almost EVERY day during lockdown. It’s a colour-correcting moisturiser with cica that really helps to heal up any blemishes. Cica is also sometimes called tiger grass, and is a staple in Chinese Traditional Medicine. It’s called tiger grass because tigers often roll in it to heal any wounds – how amazing is that?! The product is green, but as you rub it in, it changes colour and reduces redness. The solution has SPF in it too, so it’s perfect for everyday use on it’s own or as a little extra!”

– Alex, Senior Social Media Executive

Elemis Sea Lavender & Samphire Body Cream

“This is hands down my favourite body moisturiser at the minute, in fact I love the whole Sea Lavender & Samphire range. It smells incredible, feels really luxurious and just melts into my skin. One of my more boujee purchases but completely justified and my skin feels amazing. Using it daily at the minute after spending more time in this amazing sunshine.”

– Lauren, Executive Assistant

By BEAUTY BAY Nude 42 Colour Palette

“I am a nudes kind of gal through and through. A classic nude look is effortless but will always make you look like you’ve made an effort. But not all nude looks should be the same, which is why everyone should have a palette packed with nude hues to indulge in and keep your looks fresh. I always have and always will be obsessed with the By BEAUTY BAY Nude 42 Colour Palette. Bursting with buttery mattes for chic day-to-day looks and soft pressed shimmers to give your looks a glam touch, the palette is a go-to for any beauty obsessive. Even if nude isn’t your vibe, the palette is a must have for base shades and delicate shimmers. I promise, you won’t regret it.”

– Olivia, Content Assistant

bPerfect 10 Second Tan Self-Tanning Mousse

“This year, I began my quest to find the perfect tan, so I decided to give the bPerfect 10 Second Tan Self-Tanning Mousse a whirl. Spoiler: I was seriously impressed. One of the main things I love about this product is its soft fruity fragrance, as opposed to the usual telltale tan scent (gross). I don’t know about you, but when I’m on a quick tanning mission before a night out, I much prefer smelling of coconut, watermelon, and mango than stale biscuits. Another huge bonus is that this tan does exactly what it says on the (non-biscuity) tin. It promised to tan me in 10 seconds, and tan me in 10 seconds, it did – perfect for when I’m short on time. I’ll definitely be repurchasing when I run out.”

– Fran, Marketing Executive

 

Dr Jart Shake & Shot Rubber Firming Mask

“It’s important to remember to keep some time back for yourself and when I want to relax, I mask. My recent favourite is the Dr Jart+ Shake & Shot Rubber Firming Mask. I was initially attracted by the colours and the packaging I’ll admit, as a lover of anything unique this really stood out. I’d seen it in the past in other stores and so when I saw we were getting the brand I knew this was the first product I’d be trying. I liked the idea that you mixed it yourself, so would truly be very fresh and activated and it didn’t disappoint in terms of the fun factor. When applying it to my face with the included spatula (no germy fingers here) I started feeling very Mrs Doubtfire with the fridge scene. As I carried on applying, it felt like it was almost melting down my face and I began worried it would actually slop off a la “one lump or two dear”. Luckily though it dries as it drips and although your face feels wet and like it hasn’t dried it has, and when you touch it, it does feel like a rubber spongy mask. Now for the best part, peeling it off. Unlike some other masks it does not pull on your skin as you peel and comes off more or less in one. Over the next day or two my face was instantly more glowy and results were noticeable. I cannot get enough of this mask!”
