The new beauty launches to know for October 2022
With spring in full swing and sunny weather in our sights, skincare regimes are getting switched-up, new products are landing, and bookings are filling up fast in anticipation of the festive season. From an innovative update of a cult-favourite sunscreen to the first drop of limited edition Christmas gift sets, in the beauty world, all signs signal we are leaning into summer faster than ever.
Below, we bring you a curated edit of the best new beauty products to add to your radar.
Eve All Systems Glow
Bringing your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing into focus, All Systems Glow is a new daily supplement for hormone, energy, sleep, mood, skin, hair, anti-ageing and all-round ‘glow’ support. It features a potent, purposefully selected trio of zinc, magnesium, and iodine. Zinc is clinically proven for strong hair, skin and nails and healthy digestion. While Magnesium Glycinate, celebrated for its bioavailability and gut friendliness, supports relaxation and mental calmness. Finally, Iodine plays a central role in energy production, hair growth and fullness, brain function and thyroid health.
RevitaLash Advanced Sensitive Eyelash Conditioner
The award-winning lash serum, lauded by the likes of Kim Kardashian and Meghan Markle, now has a sensitive-friendly sidekick. The new Sensitive Eyelash Conditioner is the first lash serum formulated specifically for sensitive eyes. A physician-developed formula, it enhances the health and beauty of lashes using scientifically advanced, encapsulated time-release technology designed to be gentle to help prevent irritation. Win win.
Emma Lewisham Skin Shield SPF 30 Face Crème – new formula
Emma Lewisham’s cult-favourite Skin Shield has had an update just in time for summer. The reformulation comes in response to customer feedback regarding white residue on the skin – an attribute commonly associated with mineral sunscreens. Emma Lewisham embraced the challenge, and now five years later, have released a broad-spectrum zinc oxide UVA/UVB SPF 30 that is as efficacious as it is luxurious, sans any white cast. The synergistic complex features nine high-performing actives to protect the skin and promote an even skin tone while delivering all-day hydration. The ultra-protective formula is also tested to meet all international testing standards.
Medik8 Press & Clear
Instead of picking and popping spots (every therapist’s biggest bugbear), tell your clients to apply this new blemish-busting toner developed by the experts at Medik8. The daily toner uses a breakthrough formula featuring salicylic acid, alpha arbutin, and kakadu plum, to achieve a clearer, brighter-looking complexion. The toner is both comfortable and gentle enough to use every day while helping prevent and minimise the look of blemishes for a clearer complexion.
Environ Youth EssentiA Antioxidant Defence Crème – new formula
A recent European regulatory update necessitated the reformulation of Environ’s premium Youth EssentiA® Antioxidant Defence Crème. Staying true to the pursuit of developing best-in-class products, Environ’s scientific team took advantage of the opportunity to enhance this award-winning formulation, adding new ingredients to push the benefits for skin even further, with an improved and luxurious sensorial experience and a slightly richer texture. Alongside the existing star ingredients, the updated formula now features blueberry fruit extract for powerful protection against free radical damage, and Optim-Hyal, a hydrolysed yeast extract that helps deliver additional smoothing, plumping, and intense moisturising benefits.
The Beauty Chef Glow Ageless Inner Beauty Essential
Adding to their existing stable of cult ingestibles, comes a new daily essential powder specifically formulated for women over 50. Glow Ageless Powder contains a powerful combination of skin-protective antioxidants and certified organic probiotic wholefoods – shiitake mushroom, maca and grapeseed extract – to promote radiant skin, healthy hair, and optimal gut health.
Olaplex No. 4C Clarifying Shampoo
Answering to your client’s call for a healthy scalp, Olaplex’s 4C Shampoo is an advanced clarifying shampoo that deep cleanses to maximise other products’ absorption. How does it differ from the original No.4, you ask? This pH balancing, clarifying formula is designed to specifically cleanse away impurities, product build-up, excess oil and dirt from the scalp that might be causing tresses to look and feel dull. It’s formulated with a Broad-Spectrum Clarifying System and the signature Olaplex Bond Building Technology to restore shine, bounce, and vibrancy.
Alpha-H Golden Haze Face Oil
From the brains behind bestselling chemical exfoliator Liquid Gold, comes a luxurious oil blend designed to plump, soothe and nourish the skin. Rich in omega fatty acids, vitamin F, and jojoba oil, it locks in hydration and helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function, while antioxidant-rich camellia seed oil assists in combatting the visible signs of ageing. The fast-absorbing oil is perfect for those with dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin.
Living Proof Perfect Day Healthy Hair Perfector
Promising to reduce the appearance of split ends after one use, this lightweight enhancing treatment is one to add to your radar. It instantly transforms dry or damaged hair by restoring the outermost protective layer, revealing softer, shinier, smoother, and all-round healthier-looking locks.
ghd grand-luxe limited edition collection
Nothing signals the festive season drawing near like the arrival of new limited edition Christmas gift sets. Bestowing us with ever reliable good hair days all year round, ghd’s always-anticipated festive collection is equally consistent. This year, the brand’s suite of bestselling tools are dressed in opulent champagne gold, accompanied by luxurious red velvet vanity cases.

For spas and clinics with a holistic approach to skin, The Beauty Chef’s sets are a complementary addition to your offering, perfect for clients looking for gifts outside the box this Christmas (pun intended).
