Colombus Day: Exploring our Beauty Favorites

Colombus Day: Exploring our Beauty Favorites

We all know that Christopher Colombus was one mighty explorer, and as today is Colombus Day, we’re dedicating today to what he did best: exploring.

If you’re continuing your Colombus weekend celebrations, take a read of our October beauty favorites we can’t stop raving about. From skincare saviors to make-up masterpieces, these top products remain firmly on our favorites list.

As soon as we approach the Fall season, we kiss goodbye to any natural sun bronzing our skin. Our bodies no longer get any natural warmth and start to show off their pale undertones. Although it's nice to go easy on tanned skin during the Winter, it's also a good time to invest in a high quality gradual self tan moisturizer - one which hydrates and nourishes as well as deposits that slight bronzed glow to add color and depth. This First Aid Beauty Slow Glow receives winning compliments from customers, and is one of the best options for that slow, smooth and natural building Winter tan.

It goes without saying: brows are huge news. And never has there been such a winning product like the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade. This easy-to-apply waterproof brow color pot is ideal for sculpting, defining, and carving perfectly precise brows that won’t fade. The Smudge-free, creamy formula glides on skin and adheres to hair, making it super easy to build those brows!

This multi-tasking cleansing conditioner is a superb product to apply to wet hair after washing, leave for 3 minutes, and rinse away for the most conditioned hair of your life. Grow Gorgeous 11-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner provides a deep cleansing and deep conditioning action, made with a 28.1% active complex. It benefits your hair in 11 different ways, including: improving shine, adding volume, reducing frizz and flyaways, intensely moisturizing, and making your hair easier to style.

With a season of parties and celebrations coming up, your hair is going to need some lift, and this voumizing conditioner is our current go-to. Christophe Robin products deliver professional results and are an absolute joy to use, from their scents and their textures, to their end results. As well as lifting, this Volumizing Conditioner with Rose Extracts moisturizes the hair and locks the acid pH balance into the fibres, to limit the pigments escaping so color remains brilliant and fresh.

We honestly don't know what we did before cleansing devices were launched, with the FOREO devices topping our charts. For those weeks where you want to really give your skin the TLC and time it deserves, you can't beat these silicone devices for a deep clean and light exfoliation. They also cater for each individual skin concern - such as this pretty pink version which cares for sensitve skin.

Avene Thermal Spring Water features a unique composition which soothes, softens and restores skin's natural balance. This magical spritz can be used before or after makeup for calming the skin, setting make-up, soothing shaving rash, easing sunburn and refreshing during traveling (plus a whole lot more!) Clinically proven by over 300 studies, it has been used since 1743 in Avene's Hydrotherapy Center to treat serious dermatological conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema.

This cleansing duo from Erno Laszlo is a hero in itself for transforming skin with restored vitality and healthy-looking radiance. When combined, the cleansing oil and bar create a purifying mask that effectively sweeps away dirt, oil and impurities from pores, and is gentle enough for daily use. You simply gently apply the cleansing oil in small circular motions on dry skin. Massage over face and jawline to open pores and trap dirt and makeup on the face. The follow with the Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar to complete your bespoke Double Cleanse Ritual, for clear, balanced skin.

Now this is a quirky device, and a brilliant one at that. Quasar’s powerful MD PLUS encourages younger looking skin, targeting wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity. Using the most powerful home use light therapy tool available, the MD’s four wavelengths of light penetrate deeply to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin – the building blocks of young, healthy looking skin. A real treat purchase, also recommended as a great gift idea for the wife/girlfriend/partner!

If this item is good enough to be the InStyle Editor's Pick for Best Beauty Buy, then it's good enough to be ours too - and yours! This handy device with a cleansing brush cleans the skin 6X better than cleansing with hands alone. Regular use (although results can be felt immediately) leaves skin feeling and looking younger and smoother. But the best part is that using this Increases product absorption, helping you get the most out of your bedtime moisturizer!

The best news is, each of these products is on offer or promotion right now, but just for a limited period!
