It feels like there’s always beauty news to keep on top of. In the past month alone, we’ve witnessed the launch of Lucy Folk’s debut fragrance, The Ordinary’s expanding O. Lab range, an autumnal candle from Lee Mathews and Maison Balzac and Aesop’s first foray into incense. When it comes to hair, nail and skin care, these are the beauty products worth taking notice of in 2023 (to date).

Preen Screen SPF50 Reapplication Mist, Ultra Violette
Six years in the making, Ultra Violette’s newest “skinscreen” launched this week. Preen Screen is a reapplication mist designed to help keep your SPF topped up throughout the day. “Finding ways to make sunscreen application easier, that’s what drives our innovation,” says Ava Matthews, co-founder of Ultra Violette. “It was in our original brand deck but we really took the time to get the formula right.” Primed to spritz on top of makeup (it also acts as a setting spray), it includes ingredients like niacinamide and vitamins E and C, which offer a glowy touch throughout the day.

Available now at ultraviolette.com.au and coming soon to stockists, including adorebeauty.com.au.

Vital Skincare Complexion Drops, Westman Atelier
If you’re on the search for a base that gives “your skin but better” vibes, meet Westman Atelier’s latest addition:Vital Skincare Complexion Drops.

It’s available in 20 shades and has a dewy finish, which can be a saviour for drier skin types coming into the cooler months.

The Cream, Augustinus Bader
Not a new product per se, The Cream from Augustinus Bader has previously only been available in Australia through selected salons or with international shipping fees. Now on the shelves at Mecca, the iconic blue and gold packaging is an investment worth making. Originally conceived by professor and medical doctor Augustinus Bader as a treatment for burns victims, the star ingredient is a patented complex of natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesised molecules naturally found in the skin, known as TFC8. The price tag is steep, but the rationale is that you really only need this one product (plus SPF) to restore and support the skin barrier function. The brand’s lip balm is also loved by beauty enthusiasts.

Shampoo and Conditioner, Rein
Possibly the chicest solution to dandruff, Sydney-based brand Rein has launched a shampoo and conditioner that work to cleanse the scalp, while hydrating and nourishing your strands. Founded by James Want and Jack Slade, co-founders of Boss Hunting, the sleek cylindrical bottles come in an ombre green finish – far more aesthetic than the clinical packaging you might have turned to in the past.

Autumn Essentials Collection, Pax Polish
Founded by Emma Louise Paxton, Pax Polish is a nail beauty brand that rejects the “nasties”. Free of chemicals and made without animal-derived ingredients, the polishes are quick-drying and chip-resistant. And the brand’s autumn hues are challenging the classic red mani. Choose forest green, warm mocha or cool lilac for a change of pace this season.

Cicaplus Repair Serum, Boost Lab
Skin has a tendency to misbehave as the seasons change. And while the beauty community has been obsessed with actives for the past few years, there is a growing focus on ingredients that nourish, restore and protect the skin’s microbiome, like Boost Lab’s Cicaplus Repair Serum. If you’re suffering from redness, irritation or a damaged skin barrier, consider adding this lightweight formula to your AM and PM routine.

Restoring Retinol Serum, Mecca Cosmetica
Not all retinol is created equal. And diving into your first bottle can be intimidating. Starting low and slow is the best advice – and choosing products that include hydrating ingredients helps too. Mecca Cosmetica’s just-landed Restoring Retinol Serum is a .025 per cent formula that claims to improve the appearance of fine lines and texture, while also soothing and hydrating the skin.

Hair by Sam McKnight Cool Girl Superlift Volumising Spray
Fans of Hair by Sam McKnight’s cult purple can will be pleased to know there is a new cool girl in town. After launching in the UK late last year, the Cool Girl Superlift Volumising Spray is (almost) available on our shores. Where the texture mist is best applied post-styling for an effortlessly undone finish, the new spray should be spritzed onto damp hair to help boost volume and bounce with your blow dry. “[It’s] perfect for hair that falls flat and limp, and for styles that need that extra body at the roots,” the eponymous founder says.
