From a custom co-wash to a CBD face oil.
Even though August is coming to a close and it feels like we only have a limited amount of time to soak up the summer rays, there's one thing that doesn't have to end: experimenting with fresh and new beauty products. This month saw the launch of everything from a potent vitamin C serum that's perfect for evening out dark spots to a lightweight skin tint that's infused with hyaluronic acid. Ahead, we've put together a list of our favorite new hair, skin, makeup, fragrance, and wellness launches from August that you'll want to use long after summer wraps up.
Fresh and light, this scent is a standout in Oribe's newest collection of fragrances. It's called Valley of Flowers, but it's not overly sweet—notes of amber and sandalwood work to balance out the notes of Bulgarian rose and white peony.
Aside from being packed with soothing CBD, the formula in this non-greasy face oil contains a blend of jojoba oil, tea tree oil, and squalane to deeply moisturize, calm, and clear up your skin.
Think of this co-wash as a conditioner/gentle shampoo hybrid that speaks your hair's language. After taking a quiz that asks you questions about your hair, your lifestyle, and your environment, Function of Beauty's lab creates a custom co-wash formulated with the best ingredients for your specific curl type and texture.
This serum is packed with skin-loving ingredients, like niacinamide and ceramides, detoxifies your scalp, brings in moisture, and encourages hair growth.
With a weightless, creamy formula that doesn't budge, this brow pomade makes creating realistic hair-like strokes a breeze. PS: A little goes a long way. Use the built-in brush and scalloped ridge to get just the right amount of product.
Formulated with ingredients like sulfur, salicylic acid, and niacinamide, this dynamic duo, which consists of a clay treatment and a mist, works together to target existing body breakouts and prevent new ones from cropping up.
You can now get a dose of hydration and long-lasting color in four new shades, thanks to Merit's latest shade expansion. This lip oil/stain hybrid is filled with moisturizing ingredients like rosehip oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter, drenching your lips in a glossy shine while also keeping flakes away.
It's hard to believe, but this reformulation of Drunk Elephant's cult-favorite vitamin C serum is better than the original. Not only is the formula swimming with antioxidants and fruit enzymes that'll even out your skin tone, but it's also specially packaged so that the consumer mixes it together before its first use—this helps keep the formula potent and fresh.
This skin tint creates a soft-focus finish while boosting your skin's hydration levels. (You can thank the hyaluronic acid in the formula for that.) Plus, the creamy, lightweight texture goes on smoothly and stays put for hours.
