Somehow, it’s already July and we’re now officially into the second half of the year. And whilst that is somewhat terrifying, particularly given many of us have spent four of the last six months indoors, the start of a new month has a beautiful silver lining: brand new beauty products to treat yourself to. Here are 13 of the best new beauty launches happening in July that you’re going to want to add to cart.

The PEG-free formula is made with blueberry extract which helps to fight free radical damage, as well as papaya seed oil and extract to hydrate and soothe. Looks (and smells) good enough to eat – but don’t.

So make like Lizzo and cover yourself in stars – you’ll never be sad about a pimple again.
