Meet The Beauty Products Our Buyers Are Using

Best New Beauty Launches July 2024 | Space NK
While it’s always buzzing in the Space NK offices, the past few weeks have been extra busy (and exciting). From big new brand launches – Glossier, Joonbyrd, Westman Atelier, Self Glow by James Read – to new collections on everyone’s radar and big store openings, it’s fair to say our busy beauty buyers have had their work cut out for them.

Luckily, we managed to catch up with some of them to get the lowdown on some of their new and old favourites. Our Head of Skincare Shannon Monteith and Skincare Buyers Rebecca Herritty and Yasmin Ali have had their eyes on lots skincare and suncare goodies ahead of summer, our Head of Makeup Suze College and Makeup Buyers Julie Philip and Samantha Timson are in the midst of Glossier excitement while spotting other summer-ready makeup essentials, and our Head of Seasonal Sophie Wayman and Seasonal Buyer Georgie Milner have picked their summer scents and SPF heroes.

Best Beauty Products For July 2024


Laura Mercier

Translucent Loose Setting Powder, £38.50

“This translucent setting powder has long been the brightest jewel in Laura Mercier’s cosmetic crown and I don’t see this award-winning product giving up the throne anytime soon. Featherlight and ultra-fine, this powder sweeps seamlessly across your complexion to achieve a silky-smooth, subtly blurred appearance that avoids settling into fine lines or enhancing imperfections. With extended shine control, it’s a make-up must-have for every collection.” – Rebecca



Healing Oil, £25.00

“For locks that rival the radiance of Rapunzel’s, I recommend the Virtue® Healing Oil. Every drop of this soothing serum is enriched with Alpha Keratin 60ku® that powerfully remedies damaged ends strand by strand, adds fullness and tames unruly tresses. To add, it’s infused with a botanical blend of hydrating Tahitian tiare flower and antioxidant-rich Kalahari melon seed oil that perfectly protects against environmental aggressors.” – Suze



B Vibrant Tonifying Body Polish, £45.00

“Coffee may be esteemed for its energising properties, but did you know it’s equally as powerful as a skin-smoothing exfoliator, too? Just take the Bamford B Vibrant Tonifying Body Polish. This revitalising formula is infused with up-cycled coffee grounds to gently remove dead skin cells and purify pores, while a blend of shea butter and coconut oil nourishes the skin with sumptuous hydration. We’ll take one to-go, please!” – Sophie



Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel, £33.50

“Come rain or shine, a spell of SPF is essential in shielding your skin's delicate barrier against harmful UVA rays. Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defence Aqua Gel has been my unchallenged suncare superhero this summer. Instilled with vitamin E to protect against free radical damage, this two-in-one treatment feels as light as air on my complexion and soaks into the skin within seconds, helping to minimise the appearance of pores, too – which is always a bonus!” – Georgie


Self Glow By James Read

Endless Summer Everyday Tan Lotion, £44.00

“Smooth on this Tan Lotion from Self Glow by James Read and like magic, you can almost hear melodic sounds of waves splashing against the shore and feel the kiss of warm sunlight upon your sun. Providing a subtle hint of tint, this light-as-air liquid is enriched with a plant-powered blend of hyaluronic acid to strengthen the skin barrier and silky-soft shea butter, illuminating your body in a natural, buildable bronzed tan. ” – Shannon



Unseen Sunscreen SPF 30, £40.00

“Unseen Sunscreen is an SPF favourite – it makes you look so healthy and dewy, and if you choose to wear makeup, it will sit beautifully under it. I firmly believe that this is one of those sunscreens that actually makes you look forward to wearing SPF! And now it’s available in a jumbo size, which I couldn’t be more excited about.” – Sophie



Modern Radiance Cream Bronzer, £31.00

“This isn’t a new product but it’s one of my summer essentials, so I had to give it a mention. I love how seamless it is and how it just feels so nourishing on the skin. It’s perfect for adding a touch of warmth and definition – and because it’s so easy to blend and build, you can really amp up the radiance if you want to look truly sun-kissed.” – Julie



Mini Laguna Essentials Bronzer & Lip Set, £32.00

“If you’re a fan of Laguna, you won’t want to miss this gorgeous trio of NARS minis. It features Laguna in both a cream version and the OG powder version, and then there’s the Laguna Afterglow Lip Balm that looks so good with the bronzer. These three little products may be small in size, but they’re big in results…” – Samantha


The Nue Co

Supa Thick, £40.00

“I want to give my scalp all the attention this year, so I’m treating myself to this serum that makes your hair healthy from the very root! It not only promotes hair growth and thickness, but it’s also designed to soothe any scalp sensitivity, eliminate dandruff and remove product build up. I’m looking forward to seeing results over the next few weeks!” – Yasmin
