With new beauty brands and innovative new launches landing on The Handbook beauty desk every single day, the choice is overwhelming. So, we’ve done the hard work for you and filtered out the products which are worth parting with your hard-earned cash.

From celebrity haircare and skin rollers to tweed palettes and lengthening mascara, these are the products that have made our beauty editor squeal with excitement this month. 

Deeper Love Intense Conditioning Mask by Hair by Sam McKnight, from £22

Celebrity haircare legend Sam McKnight has launched his first haircare product line inspired by skincare formulas. To earn their place in Sam’s kit bag, each product has been meticulously tried and tested backstage at fashion shows on all hair types, on shoots and on the red carpet to ensure they perform. Our favourite? The Deeper Love Intense Conditioning Mask – a transformational hair cure for over-styled, over-processed hair in dire need of help. If it’s good enough for Kate Moss, it’s good enough for us! 

FaceGym Brightening Active Roller Crystallised Micro Needling Tool, £55

This innovative new-gen dissolving face roller makes at-home facials easy work. Made with micro crystals that are packed with active skincare ingredients, which dissolve into your skin with every stroke. Pain-free and easy to use, simply clip the desired roller head onto the handle and roll onto your face. With two different effects (youthful or brightening) to choose from, you can personalise your skincare and give yourself a mini facial whenever and wherever you are. Plus, it comes in a cute pouch to keep your forever roller handle in. 

Kiehl’s Retinol Fast Release Wrinkle-Reducing Night Serum, £68

If you want to power up your night time routine and go that extra mile, this is a fast enhanced retinol but in a slow-release formula, so your skin isn’t drenched in retinol all in one go but instead slowly released throughout the night, making it ideal for first-time retinol users or those with sensitive skin. Plus, it’s gorgeously light and melts into skin immediately. An exciting new addition to the brand’s retinol family.

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tweed Eyeshadow Palette, £67

The epitome of glamour. These palettes are more like works of art, than makeup. Inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s first tweed fashion collection that disrupted women’s wardrobes centuries ago. With its unique texture, this eye quad comes in four flattering autumnal colourways that work together or separately to create different looks. They’re limited edition so get in line quick! 

CeraVe Blemish Control Cleanser, £10.50

We’re super excited about this new range from one of our favourite affordable skincare brands that truly never disappoints. This gel-to-foam formula is specifically designed for problem skin. Packed with blemish-fighting ingredients to help reduce spots and blackheads and remove excess oil without messing with your skin’s natural barrier. Alcohol-free and gentle enough for even open wounds. Teen skins will particularly thank you for introducing them to this cleanser. 

Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Pencil, £23.50

Proudly holding the number one spot as the UK’s go-to brand for hardworking eyebrow products. So, it’s no surprise really that they’ve produced a first-of-its-kind volumising brow pencil that combines fibres and powder to volumise, fill and define brows. This soft double-ended pencil gives natural-looking brows every time without any harsh lines or obvious mistakes. If brows are your thang, this pencil will soon become your new best friend. 

STELLA by Stella McCartney, from £50 (£38 refill)

Continuing to champion the environment, British designer Stella McCartney has debuted three skincare products as part of her new beauty line of sustainable and refillable skincare in reusable bottles made from recycled glass. A tightly curated range that consists of a cleanser, a serum and cream that not surprisingly is also designed to look gorgeous on your bathroom shelf. The attention to detail is clear– master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, has created the line’s custom scent, that has only 12 ingredients and is incredibly light, almost undetected. We’re guessing this is just the beginning of Stella beauty.

Eyeko Limitless Lengthening Mascara, £19

This mascara caught our attention after just one application. It’s a super light formula that gives great definition and strong colour without too much drama. The brown shade is perfect for everyday casual eyes, it’s a rich colour that gives a natural finish while also stretching out lashes. But the best bit is it removes with ease and leaves no panda eye behind. 

Byredo Liquid Lipstick Vinyl, £40

Not a brand we usually associate with makeup, however this cult fragrance house is fast expanding their beauty portfolio and we’re very impressed to say the least. These glosses are highly pigmented, stay put for hours and come in the most flattering and wearable shades that will effortlessly complement your autumnal wardrobe. Try “Flushed” – a mauve/dark pink shade that is subtle and soft but looks ultra-glam day and night.
