Your alarm goes off in the morning, you stretch your arm out to snooze (of course) your phone for another ten minutes and sink back under the covers knowing it’s only a matter of time. That is until you have to force yourself up out of bed into the Antarctic conditions that is the harsh reality of autumn in the UK. Pumpkin-spiced lattes – they’re alright I guess but the sudden change in weather is absolutely not…
However, one thing that definitely makes those cold mornings and evenings better is throwing on a cosy dressing gown and indulging in a little bit of beauty! Today we’re showcasing some of our favourite beauty products in the office right now that are all available from Fragrance Direct.
Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum, £73.99 / RRP £81.50
Who’s fave? Lauren, E-commerce Marketing Manager
“This product is great for Autumn and the changing weather as it helps to exfoliate your skin making it look fresh and more radiant by getting rid of all the dead cells that build up over time. It feels lovely and nourishing on the skin and smells amazing – I use it every night!” This Vitamin C serum works with the skin’s own defences to brighten and firm while dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Pure magic.
Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation, £14.99 / RRP £17.25
Who’s fave? Beth, Product Marketing Executive
“This Stila foundation is perfect for those autumnal days. It’s super moisturising and its weightless coverage gives a flawless radiant finish that blends seamlessly with my skin. The natural glow makes me feel my best throughout the day!” With a wonderfully silk consistency that is suitable for all skin types, it’s the perfect foundation if you’re aiming for that stunning, airbrushed look.
Morphe Eyeshadow Palette Nature Glow 35O, £16.99 / RRP £23.00
Who’s fave? Olivia, Graphic Designer
“Love this because of the colours that are perfect for autumn. Great price and a great brand, what more could you ask for?” Draw attention to your eyes with the Morphe 35O Nature Glow Eyeshadow palette; a fusion of matte, satin and shimmery warm-toned eyeshadows in 35 earthy hues. From dark chocolate, neutral beiges and pearly nudes to rust terracotta and fiery burnt orange. They’re highly pigmented and super easy to apply!
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioner, £9.99 / £12.99
Who’s fave? Mia, Social Media Intern
“For my curly hair, this is hands-down my favourite leave-in treatment. As soon as the autumnal season hits after summer each year, my hair needs every last inch of moisture it can get its tips on. I love that this has castor oil in it as for my 3C hair type – the more oil the better! The keratin ingredient is also great for repairing too.” Whether you regularly colour your hair or use heat on it, this is a must-have if you have curly or kinky textured hair as it really makes a difference!
Yves Saint Laurent YSL Libre 30ml, £47.99 / RRP £56.00
Who’s fave? Beth, Social Media & PR Manager
“This is definitely my favourite new fragrance for autumn! It smells incredible and I’ve been wearing it every day for the last couple of weeks, I’m obsessed with the orange blossom notes!” Dua Lipa is the face of this new fragrance signifying freedom. Lavender gives it that extra edge as it’s traditionally used in male perfumery so there is something intoxicating about this new androgynous YSL attitude.
