HUNGER’s beauty roundup — 22 products you need to see out the summer months

See out the summer with some of HUNGER's top picks from the season...

Make the most of the balmy days with Aēsop’s Eidesis Eau de Perfum — a rich, woody scent, echoing the story of Narcissus. 

Top up on your in-flight essentials with Jurlique’s Rosewater Balancing Mist, which provides instant hydration to keep skin moisturised and refreshed. 

One Trick Ponies believe that skincare is self-care, and that’s why they’ve made six holy grail products that are for everyone. The vegan-friendly products say no to parabens, sulfates, and microbeads, and yes to powerhouse ingredients, including Vitamin C, Argan Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, and Retinol. We’ve been loving the charcoal Facial Cleanser & Exfoliator

ESHO, is the doctor-led cosmeceutical brand by Dr Tijion Esho, MD. It’s provides the most comprehensive products on the market for lips, and we’ve been enjoying the entire range, which has just expanded to include two new products. SEAL is an innovative overnight lip care product, which works while you sleep to ensure plump and pillowy soft lips the following day. And RENEW is an antioxidant-rich hydrating lip peel treatment that works to gently slough away dead skin cells from the surface of your pout.

The YSL Beauty NU Lip & Cheek Tint is a creamy tinted balm for lips and cheeks, with a 90% skincare base. The lightweight formula blends seamlessly for a natural flush, which is enhanced with hyaluronic acid and shea butter. 

Scientia Beauty’s Green Supreme CBD Vegi-Tox Rescue Mask is a smoothie for your face! With caffeine to energise, Niacinamide to brighten and Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, expect a to glow.

Ensure your delicate facial skin is receiving optimal hydration even during the late summer with Oskia’s Bedtime Beauty Boost. Rich in essential cell nutrients and hydrating, brightening and anti-ageing actives such as MSM and vitamin B3 & A, this night cream stimulates the natural regeneration process and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

All season long, we’ve been turning to Glisten Cosmetics to deliver bold festival looks that can withstand rain, mud, sun, and day-to-night boogieing. We’ve been loving their Split Liner UV bundle — which pairs excellently with their precise eyeliner brushes. Those graphic eyeliner looks we’ve been seeing all over TikTok have never been easier to achieve.  

Doctor’s Dose is a new bespoke medical grade skin and hair care brand brought to us by leading aesthetic doctor, Dr Hasia Al Khubra. The line, which includes both prescription and non-prescription products, includes targeted serums, which tackle acne and brightening, as well as a gentle cleansing balm and hair and scalp elixir.

Olverum, is a velvet-textured body cream, which not only feels luxurious to the touch, but targets the areas that are most prone to loss of tone and elasticity. Ingredients are carefully selected to boost collagen production, slow down collagen degradation, and to keep your skin feeling moisturised and supple.

PCA Skin UK’s Pigment Gel Pro is an advanced, dermatological tested corrective that helps fade the size and colour of dark spots — perfect after a long summer spent in the sun. Its hydroquinone-free formula is powered by the proprietary SynerPro Complex, which uses multiple modes of action to effectively target dark spots for all skin types and tones, including brown patches left behind by hormonal changes, UV-induced damage, and other forms of discolouration.

Karla Cosmetics is another winner for those looking for exciting festival looks or experimental glam. The brand, founded by award-winning makeup artist, Karla Powell, has some of the most eye-catching pigments on the market. We are obsessed with their Multichrone Loose Eyeshadows — magical, colour-shifting pigments that really take centre stage. To up the ante and create a lasting base, use the Fix Potion underneath.

Skinporter has just launched with their hero Korean-inspired all-in-one mask. This multi-masker uses a unique formula containing the extraordinary O+ Complex. This bespoke component binds the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere resulting in a tightening and compression effect on the skin. Think “at home face lift”, but a fraction of the price.

Benefit Cosmetics’ WANDERful World Blush collection introduces some of their most wearable, versatile shades yet. Inspired by the colours and personalities found in natural objects big and small, near and far, real and fantastical, each of the 12 shades is smudge-proof, humidity-proof and sweat-proof — just what we need as we round out the summer months.

Brows by Sarah — the new vegan, sustainable brow maintenance products by elite makeup artist, Sarah Amelia Fogg, include anti-ageing and regrowth benefits for immediate and long-term results. 

This summer, cult refillable deodorant brand Fussy launched their new rosé-inspired scent. Backed by science, not buzzwords, Fussy is known for their environment-first, effective and non-toxic natural deodorant, which keeps you feeling and smelling fresh all day long. Their new edition is truly a treat for the senses with notes of grapefruit, bergamot, and orange bitter — enjoy, and without a hangover!

One bottle of Embryolisse Last-Crème Concentraté is sold every 23 seconds, and we totally get why. The lightweight moisturiser provides optimal hydration and minimises redness, while also doubling as a primer.  

The summer months can be quite harsh on sensitive skin, and that’s why we always go back to Cetaphil. The brand’s Daily Defence Moisturiser and Gentle Skin Cleanser have been staples on everyone’s top shelf for years for the simple reason that they deliver time and time again. The Gentle Skin Cleanser is made with hydrating glycerin, niacin amide and panthenol, while the Daily Defence Moisturiser boasts very high broad-spectrum UVA/UVB photoprotection with SPF 50. 

Innersense I Create Waves is a pink Himalayan salt spray, which adds texture and enhances waves, for a beachy look. Packed with minerals and amethyst crystal, this product delivers volume, while Aloe Vera extract moisturises parched ends.

The Utan Pen allows you to create freckles and overline on the go! The waterproof buildable semi-permanent stain will last for up to 48+ to deliver a natural effect. We love using the product to overline lips and create natural-looking freckles, which develop to suit your skin tone.

Three Warriors Aqua Mist is a fool-proof daily face tan that will give you a sunkissed glow all year round. Use it after cleansing or as a makeup setter, and rest assured you’re looking after your skin too! The unique plant-based formulation is sourced straight from mother nature, infusing minerals and botanicals from the shores of Tasmania to nourish and hydrate your skin while providing that gorgeous bronzed look. Chef’s kiss.

Dr Hauschka Illuminating Fluid was recently brought back to shelves because of consumer demand, and it certainly delivers on the glow front. The versatile liquid highlighter leaves skin with a healthy, radiant sheen that is easily buildable from subtle to intensely luminous. The shimmering pigments, complimented with medicinal plant extracts, reflect the light to create a naturally radiant complexion.
