“My Skin’s Never Glowed Like This”: 10 Beauty Winners Our Team Bought in June
As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you’ll like too. POPSUGAR has affiliate and advertising partnerships so we get revenue from sharing this content and from your purchase.
When it comes to beauty and wellness routines, June tends to be the month many of us in Australia change things up. It’s the start of winter and for some of us, that means adding more moisture to our skin to increase its hydration and more products to our face to fake a summer glow.
If that’s the case for you, too, and you’re looking for some help deciding what winter skincare and makeup to buy that are worth it, you’re in the right place. Ahead, the POPSUGAR Australia team, across sales and editorial, is sharing the best beauty and wellness buys we shopped and then, in some cases, used until the product ran, out this month.
Chloe Sommerin, Agency Partnerships Manager
The Ultra Violette Daydream Screen SPF50 Tinted Veil ($55) is my favourite face tint. It’s super lightweight and is SPF 50, but still gives enough tint coverage. It’s also non-comedogenic, so is great for my sensitive skin.
Sangeeta Kocharekar, Lifestyle Editor
If I could use only one makeup product in the morning, I’d use this Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil ($59). Filled-out brows make me look so much more polished. Otherwise, my brows have all these gaps from when I overplucked, and once took a razor to them as a kid. I use this pencil that’s thick enough to easily fill them in.
Julia Carlino, Group Sales Manager
These Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel 30 App ($149) wipes have completely changed my skincare routine and helped to create a flawless base for my makeup. I cannot recommend these enough. I use them once a week after cleansing, and they set my skin up for the whole week.
Bernice Corral, Vertical Content Producer
Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick ($77.68) in ‘Bichette’ is my go-to when I’m looking for that “natural flush” look. As it’s a cream, the texture is buttery soft and glides on the skin, making it easy to blend out with either a brush or my fingers (so it’s perfect for on-the-go). Though it’s on the pricier side, a little goes a long way with this product.
Alyce Thomas, Group Sales Manager
I bought Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment ($196) for the second time last month. It’s a luxury to have, but worth the price as I’ve never had a product make my skin look so plump and glowy like this.
Shan Novak, Agency Partnerships Manager
I am currently OBSESSED with all things Summer Fridays, in particular the Dream Oasis Deep Hydration Serum ($71). I’ve been using this every night before bed and sometimes will layer it with my skin routine in the morning. It makes my skin feel so fresh and dewy.
Nicola Laing, Group Strategy Manager
I got kit: Skinkind Face Oil ($40) for Christmas, and I love it. It’s lightweight but extremely moisturising. It leaves my skin looking glowy and is also a great base for my makeup.
Kailah Haddad, Entertainment Producer
I use this Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips ($23) all year round, but mostly in winter. It’s the only lip balm that truly keeps my lips hydrated. Unlike other balms that soak in after two minutes, this one stays on my lips for hours. I typically apply it throughout the day but generously lather it before bed.
Angeline Barion, Editorial Graduate
The MECCA MAX Off Duty Glass Highlighting Stick ($19)catches the light on my cheekbones so nicely but isn’t too intense. It’s perfect for days of long wear and sits nicely on top of foundation without cracking or looking crusty.
Maddi Barber, Senior Agency Partnerships Manager
The Ultra Violette Queen Screen SPF50+ Luminising Skinscreen Serum ($47) is my ride-or-die sunscreen of choice. The formula is 10/10. It sits on the skin like a dream, giving me the perfect glow. It also doesn’t leave a white cast or have a strong scent, and it can act as a makeup primer. What more could you ask for?
