July is upon us, which means it’s time to gear up for a long hot summer. Luckily with a new season comes a whole host of new beauty launches, promising glowing and glossy days ahead.

From all-new skin saviours to new season scents, MOJEH rounds up the new cream of the beauty crop.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Blush

A new blush variant of its famed Prisme Libre loose setting powder, Givenchy’s latest beauty installment is a fusion of four illuminating tones designed to adorn the cheeks with a radiant flush. Permeated with different finishes including matte and shimmer, the compact comes complete with integrated powder puff and mirror, making it perfect for touch-ups on-the-go.

KVD Beauty ModCon Liquid Blush

Another beauty contender for best new blush of the season, vegan beauty brand KVD’s innovative hydrating formula comes in four vibrant shades that leave a gorgeous, dewy wash of colour. Light yet pigmented, the result is extremely natural without any stick – another win from the vegan beauty brand.

OJAR Eau de Parfum Sillage Boosters

The brand’s second innovation since it launched its hero product Absolute in October 2020, OJAR is paying tribute to the Omani culture and heritage with a unisex collection of 18 unique fragrances. Founded by Sheikha Hind Bahwan, the latest launch is based on six main ingredients: rose, oud, sandalwood, honey, musk and frankincense – three of which are precious ingredients that take inspiration from Oman. Designed to complement and boost OJAR Absolute whilst on the go, they are perfect for layering too, meaning you can create your own signature scent in an innovative and dynamic way.

Halfeti Cedar by Penhaligon’s

With top notes of rum, peach, cardamom and saffron, we recommend investing in Penhaligon’s new unisex scent for the beautiful bottle alone. Defined by its woody, spicy notes, the scent is inspired by the fabled black rose, taking a step into the mythical forests of Halfeti. This is definitely one that will transcend seasons.

Davines Essential Haircare Shampoo Bars

The latest beauty must-have for any vacation, Davines’ new shampoo bars were created with both the health of your hair and the planet in mind. Available in four of the brand’s existing formulations – the Dede Shampoo Bar for frequent cleansing, the Love Shampoo for frizzy hair, the Momo Shampoo for dry, dehydrated hair, and the Volu Shampoo for fine, limp hair – each bar is also packaged in 100 per cent recyclable paper. What’s more, the CO2 generated from manufacturing the bars is offset via the EthioTrees reforestation project – what more could you want?

 Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

The latest addition to Shiseido’s popular Ultimune range, this hardworking serum is powered by the brand’s Lifeblood technology, which enhances the flow of super-charged ingredients, activating the skin’s natural defense system. The result? Boosted skin resilience and improved radiance – and it even enhances the effectiveness of subsequent products, too.

Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Cream in Deep Bronze

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream has been the holy grail of cream bronzer for quite some time now, loved the world over for its lightweight texture, incredible staying power and sun-kissed finish. The problem? There hasn’t been a shade to suit dark skin tones – until now. Apply in a ‘3’ shape from temple to cheekbone and jawline for the best results.
