Through the Looking Glass

The beauty launches you should be getting your smooth and silky paws on for 2022

Glow Recipe

The K-beauty-inspired Glow Recipe are all about fruit-powered benefits which attune to your skin’s demands. Their latest contender is a weightless, whipped gel cream that marks a first for the brand with its refillable glass jar. In a balancing act for the skin, the creamy-soft moisturiser combines hyaluronic acids, polyglutamic acid and antioxidants, leaving any skin type wonderfully hydrated.

Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream, £35,

Moo & Yoo

The arrival of Harrods Beauty at St James Quarter has got everyone north of the border rosy-cheeked with beauty glee. The new beauty emporium has some gorgeous brands, but we’re particularly excited about Moo & Yoo, creators of luxe, vegan hair products. Their all-natural ingredients – including Marula oil and Icelandic moss – offer protection and nourishment for the hair, leaving it soft and shiny.

Moo & Yoo Miracle Shampoo, £23,

Dior Beauty

Another arrival we’re coveting is the launch of Dior Beauty at Harvey Nichols, Edinburgh. A heritage brand treat of skincare, makeup and fragrance, keep your eyes out for Dior Backstage, which promises samplers a “professional result” and the ‘Atelier of Dreams’ makeup collection, which pays tribute to Maison Dior – the Parisian HQ where it all began.

Atelier of Dreams Rouge Dior Lipstick, £35,


With the strapline ‘Give your mitts the time of their life’, how could we refuse? The UK refillables brand has launched two new fragrant hand and body lotions – lemongrass and coconut. The no-mess pouches can be easily decanted into the brand’s aluminium refillable bottles, plus Fiils will recycle your empties for free.

Fiils Hand Duo Kit, £26,

Miller Harris

Couture fragrance house Miller Harris have got us well and truly enamoured with their latest scent range. Each fragrance has a different persona, with our personal highlights including Feuilles de Tabac, an intoxicating blend of honeyed tobacco, spices and tonka bean; Peau Santal, with its heady hit of frankincense, pink pepper and sandalwood; and Secret Gardenia for the floral lovers – a veritable bouquet of gardenia, jasmine, ylang-ylang and violet petals.

Manifesto Nutrition

If you’re in the market for a hair, skin and nails supplement that’s vegan to boot, Manifesto Nutrition’s cherry gummies could be your wintertime friend. The nutritionist-formulated supplements help to improve skin elasticity and texture and promote collagen formation, with a recipe that blends antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as selenium, zinc, biotin and vitamin E, C and A.

Vitamin Gummies, £39.90,
