Starting this year, indulge yourself in a unique, relaxing ritual of GANKIN for pampered, glowing skin! Premium Japanese Beauty Brand, SUQQU has launched legendary Designing Massage Cream in the brand new, limited-edition scent ‘Yaezakikou’ (Authentic Floral Fragrance) to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2023. With top notes of fresh leaf green, elegant rose, soft sandalwood, and amber, the complex and deep intertwining elements create a natural harmony.

SUQQU has paired it with complementing products that all come in a kit for your best skin ever.
Inspired by winter roses that bloom in freezing cold, SUQQU’s Holiday Collection lights up with vivid colors bringing a beautiful warmth to the cold winter. Rare and less lavish winter roses add a touch of warmth to the cold of winter, creating a sense of quiet solitude and even nobility. This seductive yet graceful collection is centered around gentle shades of petals and leaves as well as the sparkling colors that are left behind by the cold morning frost.
Aēsop’s Othertopias range which included Miraceti, Karst, and Erémia scents now has a new fragrance called Eidesis. The fragrance is created in collaboration with Aēsop’s long-term fragrance partner Barnabé Fillion. I personally have not tried any fragrance from Aēsop before but I do love their bodycare and haircare products. This Australian Luxury Cosmetic brand combines science with exceptional botanical ingredients to create remarkable products. The products from Aēsop bring an aromatic experience plus their gorgeous minimal packaging is to die for! For instance, if you look at the fragrance bottle of Eidesis, the brown glass bottle looks so chic and complements the aesthetics of Scandi-style lovers!
Empowerment is about accepting who you are, your limitless potential, and knowing that you’re capable of anything! Huda Beauty is launching its biggest collection of the year – The Em(power)ed Collection. This is a collection to inspire you and remind you that you are strong and powerful every time you use it. This collection includes the EM(POWER)ED palette – 18 shades inspired by the color of power, gold – a LEGIT Lashes Double-Ended Mascara in limited edition gold packaging, and an all-new Face Gloss with gold shimmers. There is also a WISHFUL Eye Lift & Contour mask with a bold gold empowered statement and put together the ultimate Lip Kit with gold details.
Scent Space is essentially control over the projection and intensity of a fragrance. That means you can now decide if you want a certain fragrance to have a closed bubble or stay in your personal space or have a decent projection with an expressive scent. You may even choose your scent to fill the room with bold fragrance. Every fragrance from Commodity comes in three different scent spaces which I think is really cool and robust. It really distinguishes this contemporary fragrance house from any other brand in the industry. Fragrances in the Personal Scent space will sit close to the skin. Fragrances in the Expressive scent space are balanced in terms of projection and longevity while fragrances from the Bold scent space will make a statement.
SUQQU is launching its Spring Summer’22 Color Collection this month. The upcoming SS’22 collection is inspired by the personality and uniqueness that each person’s makeup expresses.

It is that time of the year when we start thinking about the holiday season – the glamorous makeup to cheer us up and get us ready for the festivities and parties. I am so glad to share the new pre-holiday collection which is inspired by the sky glow and the city lights glimmering in a winters evening. This collection features cool hues and soft sparkles to create a range of chic looks, perfect for the holiday season. Not just for the holiday season, these pieces are so versatile that you may like to wear them for every occasion (I’m already planning Birthday and Diwali looks!).
Molton Brown recently launched the Opulent Collections, two NEW Ambery fragrances – Neon Amber & Labdanum Dusk.

Tonka bean is an ingredient full of contrasts, sometimes reminiscent of vanilla leather, sometimes of almonds, sometimes even revealing chocolatey facets. Velvet Tonka is characterized by its trilogy of tonka bean, orange blossom, and almond. When worn on the skin, it coats it like an oriental delicacy dusted with icing sugar. The balmy tonka bean is adorned with almonds and rose petals for a velvety touch, and with a hint of tobacco absolute to give it a honeyed feel. In the base, addictive notes of milky Amyris wood unfurl, enhanced by ambroxan and vanilla absolute for an unparalleled velvetiness and sensuality. Velvet Tonka is a tribute to the Moroccan origins of founder David Benedek and to the iconography associated with the region through its flavors and its landscapes, like a sweet, indulgent breeze coming straight from the Atlas Mountains. – BDK PARFUMS
SUQQU Beauty’s latest Autumn Winter Collection’21 is inspired by ‘gyokuju’ – the Japanese word for a person of beauty and integrity. This refined collection embodies simplicity, strength, and warmth. Think natural yet bold shades for an effortlessly chic autumnal look.
Golden sunset tones, pretty summer blooms, clear skies, and a kitten playing in the garden – that’s what I imagine when I see the new Summertime Blue collection from Paul & Joe Beauté. I have seen some of the previous limited edition collections from the brand and noticed Cats make an appearance often in their collections. This collection is all about cats and florals on the packaging. The lipsticks however boast a bear head shape.
Whether you’ve booked a holiday or staying at home, these are some of the best fairly-new beauty products that you should try this summer…
Midnight Renewal Serum is a nighttime serum designed to stimulate optimal repair during sleep. I like to pair this serum with the brand’s rejuvenating night cream which intensively nourishes the skin. This power duo from Omorovicza works in harmony to renew skin cells and revealing a soft, supple complexion. This duo boosts radiance and plumps the skin reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
