Beauty products drop at a dizzying rate, but there’s no need to feel overwhelmed. At CF we have done the hard work for you: curating an edit of the products dropping in October to really get excited about.
From the intelligent SPF to replace your favourite moisturiser, to the chicest lipstick to apply on-the-go, these are the products that have piqued our Beauty Editor’s interest this month.
This intelligent new SPF is the latest addition to U Beauty's trilogy of super whizzy skincare products. Laden with the brand's patent-pending SIREN technology as well as vitamin C, zinc oxide, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and shea butter, it helps to dimish existing pigmentation, add radiance, and provide broad-spectrum sun protection. Non-greasy and drying to a powdery finish, this may well replace your favourite daily moisturiser.

Treat your body to the same wonder ingredients you look for in your favourite face serums with this AHA-enriched body lotion that makes light work of dry patches and dull complexions. Laced with a cocktail of antioxidant-rich plant oils – including passionfruit, apricot, and shea – the formula gently buffs away pesky bumps and blemishes as it softens. The addition of niacinamide and squalane are very welcome for an added dose of hydration too. The result? Strokeably soft limbs you'll want to parade, even when the temperature drops.
Guerlain's Rouge G lipstick is unequivocally the chicest lipstick in the business: the sleek bullet comes with a customisable case of your choosing, which houses a flip-up mirror to make on-the-go application a breeze. Now it's even more covetable, reimagined under new Creative Director of Make-Up, Violette. The new velvety formula leaves lips exceptionally soft, with 16+ hours of highly-pigmented colour. The new Rouge G cases are dressed in Parisian wardrobe inspired patterns for extra style points.

We didn't think a bar of soap on a rope could cause so much excitement, until we set eyes on the latest extension of the Loewe home fragrance line. Taking inspiration from the great outdoors, unexpected scents like oregano and tomato leaves will scent your entire bathroom, whilst sitting pretty at your sink.
We are eternally after a mascara that offers va-va-voom volume, a definite curl, and staying power. This new mascara from Trish McEvoy does all that, and more, enrobing lashes in a soft coating of black pigment that doesn’t clump. A quick zig-zag sweep offers an instant eye-opening effect, whilst multiple coats are the gateway to a dramatic eye. Thanks to the addition of conditioning ingredients lashes feel nourished too – an added bonus.
