The 5 most exciting new beauty arrivals of 2022

New Year’s Eve is here: a time for resolutions, reflections and a review of the year that was. If you, like us, have uttered the words “new year, new me” one too many times this week, then we’re helping you kick that journey off right with some fresh beauty to start 2022.

From skin tonics that tackle texture to honey-powered hair products and a new rosy scent, 2022 already looks good on you!

Tatcha The Texture Tonic

The Tatcha launch we’ve all been waiting for, this exfoliating tonic is the ultimate texture-tackler (and won’t leave sensitive skin stressed, either). If you’re bidding enlarged pores farewell for 2022, this water-like treatment uses fruit AHAs, Japanese mugwort and niacinamide to slough off dead skin cells and minimise the appearance of pores, without disturbing the skin’s delicate balance. Inspired by the daily skincare rituals of Japanese women, the tonic is designed to be applied after cleansing to cool, calm and smooth the complexion – without stripping the skin.

Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Moisturiser

In an ideal world, you’d apply your moisturiser and your skin would be gleaming – dewy, plump and glowing. Thankfully, Glow Recipe is turning an ideal into a reality with their new ultra-hydrating, quick-absorbing gel-cream. Layer it on top of its serum counterpart and reap the benefits of polyglutamic acid, multi-weight hyaluronic acid and of course, three antioxidant-rich plums (Kakadu, Illawarra and Burdekin). And, it comes in a refillable jar!

Gisou Honey Leave-In Conditioner

Gisou’s really shaking up the haircare world, and we’re so here for it. The brand’s new leave-in conditioner is no exception: it’s a lightweight, multi-tasking conditioning spray that hydrates, smooths and works to protect hair from heat damage – without weighing it down. You can use it post-shower on wet hair and let it absorb naturally, or work it through dry hair pre-styling to tame flyaways and add shine. New year, new hair, new me – you catch the drift.

diptyque Eau Rose Eau de Parfum Limited Edition

A blooming collaboration between florist Maurice Harris and diptyque, the new Eau Rose EDP is a headier, slightly more intense version of the Eau Rose EDT we know and love. Adorned with a limited-edition floral vessel inspired by the florist’s arrangements, this re-imagined scent infuses rose extracts and absolutes, as well as upcycled roses. Trust us, this is rose done differently – and it’s coming with us into the new year.

Living Proof Perfect hair Day™ Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo

Living Proof knows a thing or two about how to do dry shampoo – their original Perfect hair Day™ Dry Shampoo won our hearts way back when it launched and quickly became a staple on every desk (and in every handbag) at MECCA HQ. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, the brand has launched their Advanced Dry Shampoo which – and we’re not being dramatic here – literally cleans like a shampoo, gives your roots some ‘zhuzh’ and makes your day-three hair look like it’s fresh out of the salon. Here’s to 365 more good hair days in 2022!
