'Lots of new beauty products slid across my desk in June. Here's 13 I can't stop putting on my face.'

You know what time it is? Time for me to start making my own doctor's appointments. But also, time for our monthly beauty round-up

If you're new around here (OMG, hi, love the hair), every month I pull together the best new beauty launches that've crawled into my mailbox. That is, the kind of stuff that I've been using on my face/body/hair and loving.

And as a person who writes about beauty products for a living - you know I'll only pick the good stuff.

Watch: You know what I didn't love on my face? Lube. I tried the lube primer hack below to see if it really works. Story continues below.

So, let's get to it, shall we?

From a hyped-up bronzer to a spendy diffuser and ALL of the glorious hydrating goodness - below you'll find 13 of the best new launches in June 2022.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Nouveau Eyeshadow Palette, $84.

Okay, but how pretty is this palette?! It's giving us winter chic. While I'm the most boring person getting around when it comes to eyeshadow looks (she's a neutral/brown kinda gal), I find all of these colours so wearable, but not boring. Everything applies beautifully - especially the shimmers! One to try if you want to treat yourself.

Mecca Cosmetics Revitalising Hydration Mask, $54.

If there's one thing my skin always wants/needs, it's a fat sack of hydration - and this rich hydration mask from Mecca Cosmetica is BRINGING IT. Slap it on at night before bed and wake up with a juicy, plump face. Show the postman. Enjoy!

Juliette Has A Gun Not a Diffuser, $110.

I think this is the most expensive diffuser I've ever come across, and I certainly won't be able to afford a new one - but for now, I'm going to relish the fact that my home smells like a clean, pure rich person's house. If you're a fan of the iconic 'Not a Perfume' fragrance - you're going to love it.

Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer, $75.

In case you haven't heard all the yelling around Charlotte Tilbury's new bronzer - it's good! Makes your skin look healthy! Not muddy! I love the creamy texture of the formula, and how it melts into the skin - it's a dream to blend. Even for someone who is afraid of bronzers!

Yes, your blush can also give you some sweet skincare benefits! This little tube of magic from Laura Mercier delivers ultra-moisturising botanicals for hydrated, happy skin. We love a good multi-tasker!

No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream, $34.99.

Have you tried this guy from cult UK brand No7? You probably should, you know. It's one of those products that just makes your skin look... better. There are three different products in this day cream range - and this one is the perfect entry-level product for those in their mid-20s/early 30s (there's also one that's great for 40+ skin and another for 55+). It instantly makes my skin look healthier and more radiant.

Liberty Belle Date Night, $138.

Another hydration mask? Yes! It's winter and my skin is pi**ed, so we're going hard, friends. Date Night is the newest launch from Liberty Belle Rx, and it's all about strengthening your skin barrier and keeping it really happy, which is VERY important. It's also formulated with papaya extract to gently exfoliate the skin, minus the irritation.

Gisou Honey Infused Scalp Treatment, $63.

My scalp LOVES being difficult. Enjoys throwing a flake or two. So, when this intensive leave-on serum sauntered across my desk, I could wait to see if it would help sort things out. You basically use it at night or dry hair, massaging it into your head and leaving it on to do its thing. I've only been using it for a short while, but can already see a difference in my dreaded wintery scalp dryness. Side note: The packaging is SO cute. Shallow, but true.

Josie Rose Hydrating Treatment Mask, $126.80.

This Hydrating Treatment Mask landed on my desk all the way from the UK - and I'd heard some VERY good things about it from one of my colleagues at Mamamia, so was keen to see if it lived up to the hype. And goodness, it does. It's formulated with five per cent retinol and one per cent bakuchiol, and will gift you glowing, hydrated skin come morning. 

Summer Fridays Dream Oasis Deep Hydration Serum, $66.

Yes! Another hydrating product - because it's winter and all the skincare brands are DELIVERING. This new serum from Summer Fridays has a jelly-like consistency, absorbs quickly and just makes your face feel really comfortable, hydrated and nourished. A very good time for all faces.

Moroccanoil Fragrance Mist for Hair and Body, $45.

Okay, but this smells DELICIOUS, you guys. What a bloody treat! I'm not usually one for hair scents - and can be a bit picky with fragrances - but this is such a fun and fresh scent. If you love the scent of their Moroccan hair oil, then this is right up your cute alley. It's not the longest lasting scent, but I keep it on my work desk to refresh during the day.

Conserving Beauty InstaMelt Skin Soothing Sheet Mask, $15 each or $42 for three.

Conserving Beauty dropped the world's first dissolvable face masks - how cool is that?! Following on from the launch of their dissolving makeup wipes, these sheets masks work to revive dull skin for an instant healthy glow. A really good mask to use to zoosh up your skin before a party or an event!

QV Hydrate & Renew Serum, $20.75.

In case you didn't hear me the first 17 times, my skin is REPTILAN during winter/always. And I need all the help I can get. Luckily, the kids at QV just dropped this affordable serum - and you know it's going to be good because it's QV, and dermatologists froth over the stuff.
