My top pics:

Vela Days Active Compound CannaComplex Multi-Active Facial Serum: This silky serum is a gorgeous one-and-done product containing nourishing lipids, Vitamin C and niacinamide and 0.08% microencapsulated retinol.  Gentle enough to be used twice daily, the formula refines and brightens skin while providing deep hydratinon.

Emma Lewisham, Skin Shield, SPF30:

Emma Lewisham was a breakout brand of 2021 and made waves with her circular beauty announcement. She has recently repackaged her sunscreens and serums to be refillable meaning there’s even more to love about this elegant, mineral sunscreen formula (my other top pick is her SkinReset Serum!)

Ere Perez, Carrot Colour Pots

Ere Perez is one of the best natural makeup ranges hand down – if you’re looking to dip your toe into the water I recommended checking out their lipsticks, highlighters and these pots of colourful goodness. These cream blushes have a balm consistency – enough slip to blend easily but not so much you end up with a streaky mess. The colours are well thought out and suit a range of skin tones – a perfect day-to-day beauty staple.
