Best New Beauty Launches November 2023 | Space NK
Space NK’s senior skincare buyer Emily Montila, makeup buyer Samantha Timson, assistant buyer Abbey Parkinson, and haircare and fragrance buyer Helena Drozd are always the first to know about what’s coming up. As we slide into November, a lot of us are looking for Christmas gifting inspiration and while our buyers have shared a couple of their favourite beauty gift sets, they’ve also revealed the new beauty launches they’re loving right now.

From Chantecaille’s radiance-boosting powder Samantha is adding to her makeup stash to the Sisley-Paris gift set Abbey has her eye on, these are the beauty products our buyers have on their radar…

Best New Product Launches For 2023


Space NK

Caribbean Shores Body Scrub, £ 16,00

“I’ve been working on this project for a long time, and I’m thrilled to see our revamped bath and body collection, alongside the brand-new scented candles, online and in stores. My favourite is the Caribbean Shores Body Scrub as it smells like beach holidays and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. It’s a great one for those who love to self-tan all year round.” – Abbey


Jo Loves

Gingerbread Home Candle, £ 55,00

“I know this might spark some debate, but I think I might prefer Jo Loves Gingerbread Home Candle to the much-loved Christmas Tree scented candle. It fills your home with the most comforting, wholesome scent of orange and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and clove. It makes me quite nostalgic.” – Helena Space NK own brand


Malin + Goetz

In Good Hands, £ 20,00

“Every year, Malin + Goetz brings out a rendition of this mini gift set and I’m very happy that 2023 is no exception. The mojito flavoured lip moisturiser is one of my favourite lip balms and it’s always wise to have one of the brand’s bestselling hand creams on your desk.” – Emily



Radiant Glow Blur Powder, £ 92,00

“I know I should be thinking about tackling my Christmas shopping list, but I fully intend to treat myself to Chantecaille’s Radiant Glow Blur Powder. The lightweight powder melts into your skin and blurs redness, leaving you with the subtlest natural-looking glow.” – Sam



Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Cream, £ 107,00

“This Shiseido Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Cream was made for this time of year when your skin is starting to feel the brunt of the cold, wet weather. Utilising the brand’s Kurenai-TruLift complex, this buttery soft cream helps to hydrate, lift and strengthen your skin barrier. It has been a great addition to my winter skincare routine.” – Emily


Tory Burch

Tory Birch Fall Set (Electric Sky/Sublime Rose/Divine Moon), £ 59,00

“Mini fragrance gift sets make the most perfect Christmas presents in my mind and I love Tory Burch’s trio of travel-size scents. I mean, how incredible is the packaging?!” – Helena



The Original Beauty Blender, £ 17,00

“The festive party season is fast approaching so I’ve started to use a medium coverage foundation rather than the tinted moisturiser that saw me through summer. In doing this I’ve been reunited with my Beauty Blender, and I’ve been reminded just how good the original makeup sponge is. If you haven’t tried the Beauty Blender yet I highly recommend you treat yourself to one today – it’s a makeup game-changer.” – Sam


Sol de Janeiro

Brazilian Joia Milky Leave-In Conditioner, £ 28,00

“The mere mention of Sol de Janeiro makes most people think of the iconic Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, but the brand’s haircare line shouldn’t be ignored. This lightweight leave-in conditioner helps to smooth frizz and leave your hair feeling silky soft – even when you’re using your straighteners and curling tongs daily.” – Helena



The Body Cream, £ 49,00

“It’s not brand-new but slathering this luxuriously rich body cream on in the evening is the perfect slice of self-care for me. The fragrance-free formula melts into skin and leaves my legs feeling smooth and nourished.” – Emily



Black Rose Discovery Kit, £ 165,00

“Sisley-Paris Black Rose Cream Mask is a skincare staple for me (it preps my skin for makeup perfectly!), but I’m keen to explore more of the range and this gift set features a mini Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream and Beautifying Emulsion. Plus, it’s worth £227 so it would be silly not to treat myself.” – Abbey



Fabulous Forms, £ 50,00

“While we’re on the topic of gift sets, can we discuss this Aesop Fabulous Forms kit? With a hand balm, body cleanser and lip balm, I am fully sold on this and intend to buy one for someone on my Christmas shopping list and treat myself to one.” – Sam


Space NK

12 Days Of Fragrance Advent Calendar, £ 150,00

"If you missed out on the Space NK beauty advent calendar this year, you might be please to learn that we have curated a very magical fragrance advent calendar. There are limited numbers and all of your olfactory favourites are in there, including Diptyque, Laura Mercier and Maison Margiela. Run, don't walk if you want to avoid missing out." - Helena
