We've rounded up the best new beauty buys for the end of summer. From firming your wobbly bits to protecting your skin from the last of the summer sun, we've got you covered.

For chip-free nails: All That Jazz 

From £9.98

Bora Bora Utopia shade

Looking to achieve that salon-perfect gel nail look without the hefty prices and awkward conversation?

Step forward All That Jazz, a professional nail lacquer brand that offers strong, chip-resistant formulas in a range of dazzling colours.

We wore this polish for a full week without any sign of chipping or colour fade and the gel formula meant it was impossible to tell the manicure was DIY rather than professional.

The “Mojito” and “Mr Blue Sky” shades look particularly good with a tan…


For sun protection: Kypris Pot of Shade, Heliotropic


This multi-functional formula with SPF 30 works brilliantly as a base for your make up. Highly moisturising and smoothing, it leaves your skin feeling fresh and offers the added confidence of protection from the sun’s rays.

With beautiful packaging and a travel-friendly size (a little goes a long way with this product), it’s perfect to pop in your handbag and can double up to replace moisturiser if you’re travelling light.

Weightless enough that your skin doesn’t feel heavy, sweet iris stems and tamanu extract are key ingredients, working to plump tired skin. The delicious smell is an added bonus…


For a flawless complexion: Clarins SOS Pure Rebalancing Clay Mask


This fresh, thick mask feels luxurious yet invigorating on sensitive skin, leaving pores feeling tighter and complexion brightened.

Engineered to target combination to oily skin, the masks utilises mattifying organic alpine willow herb extract and white and green clays to absorb any impurities.

There’s the added bonus of the classic face mask green colour and divine smell. The cooling sensation of the mask makes for a relaxing and refreshing experience.

Be careful not to exceed the recommended application time, to avoid unnecessarily drying the skin.


For delicious scent: Lush Twilight and Rose Jam body sprays


Crafted with essential oils, one spritz of one of these strong-but-sweet-smelling body sprays feels like walking into a cloud of summer.

Twilight has a dusky lavender scent that’s perfect for lazy holiday evenings while Rose Jam smells distinctly like Turkish Delight with notes of rose, lemon and fruity geranium.

The unique packaging makes them a great quirky gift and both products are vegan-friendly.


For firming skin: Natura Siberica Alladale Firming Cream


This thick, luxurious cream is the best firming cream we’ve tried, and at an affordable price.

Made with Scotland’s national flower, the Wild Thistle, and organic Siberian ginseng from the brand’s own organic farm in Khakassia, the vitamin boost of this cream will leave skin feeling invigorated as well as firm.

The cream is engineered to be free of harmful chemicals including parabens and silicones, and boasts a 98 per cent natural origin of its ingredients, meaning its firming action is gentle enough for even sensitive skin.
