The salons might be closed but we’re still giving ourselves a little TLC at home. From East London inspired nail polish to sleep drops with catnip to a new deodorant balm tested on dancers, these are the beauty buys getting us through lockdown….

The Nue Co Sleep Drops

The news has played havoc with our anxiety levels and some nights we’ve found it hard to stop our mind doing overtime. If you’re also finding it hard to drift off these sleep drops from cult brand The Nue Co are worth a try. The contain catnip & chamomile to help slow down racing brains.


INNOLuxe Elixir V2 Treatment

We usually get our locks chopped every two months so it’s safe to say we have a fair few dead ends right now. This leave- in conditioning treatment is making the wait for a salon appointment just a little bit more bearable. Perfect if your mane is feeling dried out.


Akt Deodorant Balm

This new deodorant balm is tested on dancers, so no matter how sweaty you’re getting in your Insta live gym sessions this has you covered. It also comes with a brass applicator that encourages lymphatic drainage and can be applied anywhere on your body.


Dragon Fruit Shampoo Bar

This new Dragon Fruit shampoo bar from Faith in Nature is made using only natural ingredients (dragon fruit is big in antioxidants) so it’s as good for the planet as it is for your hair. The packaging is made of fully recycled card too and no plastic is used.


Shoreditch Nails Polish

These colours are inspired by the vibrant East London hoods, including a light and minimal Stokey grey, a lush deep Brick Lane red and a peachy Dalston. Whatever your shade, they are all vegan, cruelty free and 85% natural ingredients.


Self Care Co. Roll On

Ease your lockdown stresses with an aromatherapy roll on from eco-friendly brand Self Care Co. Each scent is made from pure essential oils and has been crafted to help combat anxiety. Our fave is the neroli, lavender and grapefruit.


STILL Protective Hand Balm

This all natural balm is exactly what our over-sanitised hands need. It moisturises, renews skin cells and improves the appearance of tired hands – one of the best for thirsty skin.


BAM EAST X Tort Hair Clips

This limited edition collab between BAM and Tort makes everyday a good hair day. Yes, even in lockdown. The large marbled clip in cream caramel keeps a strong hold for all hair types.
