REVIEW: Urban Outfitters Beauty Launches!

Urban Outfitter's is a store I could spend hours browsing!  I've not purchased much of their clothing but their jewellery, trinkets and gadgets section always has me drooling!  They've recently added some amazing brands to their beauty shelves and I wanted to run through some of their products today!

Anatomicals Cherry Lip Balm SPF15:
I've become seriously obsessed with this lip balm since getting my hands on it - it smells incredible and leaves my lips feeling so soft!  A bargain at £2.99

Skin & Tonic London Gentle Scrub:
This reminds me of one of my favourite Dermalogica scrubs (the daily microfoliant) - you need to mix the powder with water to create a paste, which you can then use to exfoliate or leave on as a face mask for a gentle dextofiying pamper!  A quirky product which I haven't tried yet but will update as soon as I do!

Embroylisse Lait Creme Concentrate:
A must have cream in the beauty world - Embroylisse is loved by makeup artists everywhere for it's hydrating and priming properties!

Fig & Yarrow Complexion Water:
I'm really into mist toners at the moment and this has been a staple in my handbag - it contains a blend on Rose, Sandalwood and Neroli which are great for the skin, but can also be spritzed on hair and body!  I have a 30ml bottle but it's available in 120ml bottles from Urban Outfitters.

Merci Handy Hand Sanitizers:
These are currently out of stock on the UO website and I'm not surprised - they're amazing!  I have the Lollipop scent which reminds me of one of my favourite teen fragrances (Miss Dior Cherie).  I actually want the whole collection of these anti-bacterial sanitizers because they are super cute and the perfect size for my handbag.

Balmi Coconut Balm:
There's not much I need to say about Balmi as they already have a cult following but they're now also available in UO stores.  It smells deliciously of coconut and contains a blend of shea oils to keep your lips smooth!

LipCote
I've reviewed Lipcote many times on my blog before (here) - it's a wonder product that every girl needs in her collection.

Eva-Nyc Dry Shampoo
It takes a lot for a dry shampoo to replace my beloved Colab & Batiste but this has joined my favs! The smell is delicious (Andrew loves it too) and it leaves my hair looking refreshed without being overly powdery and chalky!  It's pricey though so I'd only re-purchase for special occasions.

Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum:
Perfect for those who have fine hair and want some more volume, this serum is designed to be massaged into your scalp (don't worry - it doesn't leave your hair greasy) and it's complex blend of 7 technologies work to leave your hair thicker, longer and fuller!  

Calm Down Ginger & Lavender Body Wash:
I can't use shower gels without my body hating me (long story) so I've given this to my mother-in-law who LOVES ginger.  After I smelt it however, I was hesitant to give it away because it smells so damn good - I could sniff it all day.  Normally with ginger and lavender one usually overpowers the other but this has captured the most perfect mix of both scents. Delicious - I love the bottle too! 

Daily Concepts Your Body Scrubber:
I'm not the best at remembering to exfoliate my body but this really well thought out scrubber has made it really easy to incorporate into my weekly pamper regime.  It has a suction pad on the packet which you can stick on your shower tiles (a constant reminder to scrub in the shower) and it's label even fades after it's had enough use letting you know when you need to replace it!

Bubble T bar:
The Bubble T cosmetics range has also been added to UO's growing beauty shelves and I suspect their bathbombs will be super popular and they also make a really cute gift!

I really love how they've carefully selected beauty brands that are unique and hard to find otherwise, bringing a whole new world of beauty to the highstreet rather than your typical drugstore beauty brands.  I've discovered a whole lot of new favourites!

Will you be popping into an Urban Outfitter's store to try out any of these?

  3. We don't have Urban Outfitters here (for as far as I know) but they have some pretty nice beauty stuff it seems. That coconut balm sounds like something my lips would love.

  7. Embroylisse sounds so cool, I haven't heard of it before but anything to prime the skin and hydrate is good for me!

  13. In the U.S., Urban Outfitters is one of the most reliable sources for Korean skincare and makeup.

    I bought some Peripera lip stain markers from their online store a couple months ago and my sister has dubbed them the "amazing magic Korean lip stains" after using them and discovering that they often last 24 hours.

    It's really hard to resist ordering at least one beauty item whenever I order more dry shampoo (they have Batiste which is never in stock in stores around here).
