Beauty products pop up on the market so often that it’s become quite difficult to decide which ones to splurge your hard-earned cash on and which ones to hold back from. From a trendy travel-sized hand cream to a lash growth serum that promises to erase the need for lash extensions, here are the best beauty products that are worth buying this month.

Grown Alchemist Hydra Restore Cream Cleanser

Enriched with antioxidant-rich olive leaf and Plantago extract, the Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser from cult Australian brand Grown Alchemist gently removes makeup and cleanses without dehydrating or irritating the complexion. It will leave your skin feeling soft, clean and soothed, which we absolutely adore.

Dr Barbara Sturm Balancing Toner

An editor’s pick, this super soft and mild toner can be used daily as part of your skincare routine. Apply after cleansing to remove residue from makeup and excess oil, while regulating the skin’s delicate pH balance. It’s also formulated with beta-glucan and panthenol to soothe irritated and sensitive skin so it feels clean and balanced.

Grown Alchemist Instant Smoothing Serum

If there’s anything on the list that is a definite must-buy, it would be Grown Alchemist’s Instant Smoothing Serum. It is a lightweight hyaluronan serum that can be used as an instant plumping and priming treatment before an evening out, or as a treatment to counteract skin damage (such as sunburn and dryness from air-conditioning). The ingredients are a combination of plant-derived high, medium and low weight Hyaluronan molecules, that penetrate deep into the skin’s structure and delivers hydration quickly and deeply.

Xlash Pro Eyelash Serum

This eyelash serum from Swedish brand Xlash is award-winning for a reason; it’s been proven to enhance the appearance and colour of your lashes, with visible results in up to 28 days. It’s also hypoallergenic-tested. Time to say goodbye to eyelash extensions!

Tamburins The Shell Perfume Hand

The latest offering from K-beauty brand Tamburins is already a bestseller; this dual-use, cream-type perfume comes in a shell case that is perfectly sized to stow in your handbag or carry-on. It’s also packed with Centella Callus, an anti-ageing ingredient that tightens and nourishes the skin while reducing fine lines. Our personal favourite scents? Blessed and 000.

Dew It Body Polish

Formulated with UV protection, this lightweight SPF 20 body lotion equipped with a roller helps massage the tired skin on the go! It is formulated with a blend of olive oil, sunflower oil and argan oil, leaving your skin supple, dewy and moisturized all day long.

Everpink Cosmetics Blush My Feelings

A good cream blush should be on anyone’s vanity and this one from Everpink Cosmetics is an excellent addition to your makeup collection. It’s an anti-clogging, oil-controlling cream blush that blends effortlessly into your skin. We love that it’s non-greasy and has a cream-to-powder texture.

Farmskin Superfood For Hair Ultra Moisturizing Hair Mask

Treat yourself this weekend with a good hair mask; K-beauty brand Farmskin’s Superfood for Hair Mask is a must-try. The two variations — Blackberry Complex and Olive Complex — help to lock in moisture and nourish your hair, bringing volume and sheen to otherwise lacklustre hair.

Skind Naturals Natural Deodorant

Formulated with 100% nourishing plant oils, this natural deodorant from Skind Naturals conditions the skin while neutralising body odour naturally.
