UK's Finest: British Beauty Brands For Face, Bath Time + More

It comes with bittersweet excitement that I'll make the transatlantic move to London in a few weeks.  I'll miss a few American beauty staples, such as Josie Maran Argan Oil Sunscreen and Sally Hersberger Hyper Hydration Spray, as well as my corner Sephora (seriously, this beauty outpost has everything). While no Boots can compete with the epicness that is SEPHORA, I’m beyond excited to shop my favorite British beauty brands on their home turf.

Soap & Glory Scrub ‘Em and Leave ‘Em Body Scrub

This body scrub features babassu, jojoba, and mandarin oils, as well as exfoliating sea salt and the deliciously scented Mist You Madly fragrance.

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Sex Bomb Bath Bomb

These fragrant bath balls will add so much excitement to your bath time. I recommend pouring yourself a glass of red or rosé wine, popping this fizzy bad boy into the tub, and drifting off into a pure state of bliss.

Molton Brown Rhubarb & Rose Hand Wash

This fragrant hand soap smells like a fancy floral garden in the heart of the English countryside.

James Read Liquid Tan

This is the only self tanner I’ve ever used that develops into a natural long-lasting tan, which also doesn’t leave tinted splotches all over your clothes and bed sheets. In fact, I believe it’s the only self-tanner on the market that features this coveted streak-free formula.

Illamasqua Nail Varnishes

These Illamasqua nail polishes are fabulously pigmented and chip-resistant, which are perfect for when we’re unpacking all our moving boxes.

Orico London Superico Face Oil

This vitamin rich face oil is 100% natural and features multitasking plant oils (tamanu, rosehip, jojoba, just to name a few) and notes of bergamot, patchouli, and lavender.

Simple Exfoliating Face Wipes

Perfect for your travel bag, post-gym, home and anytime in between, these sensitive skin face wipes sweep away all traces of makeup and help prep your skin for your moisturizing routine.
