Sauce beauty hits | July edition
Haaaaaappy July you guys! The start of a new month is often filled with a certain kind of excitement—for us at the Sauce HQ that means sharing our monthly favourites with our readers. But this month, we decided to switch it up and share products that we love all year round, 24/7!
In addition to that, we decided to collaborate with our friend and artist Karen Ishiguro to create something different: the beautiful calligraphy you see in these stunning images.
Estée Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Serum
On top of having its own Sauce review, this oil-free, fragrance free product made such an impression it had to be mentioned again! Primarily an anti-ageing serum, ANR works nocturnally to ensure your skin’s early morning appearance is visibly refreshed, glowy and hydrated. Its lightweight texture, suitable for both oily and sensitive skin, works to even out the skin and soften aging lines: a must in your skincare routine.

Jo Malone London - Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne
The seaside scent of Wood Sage & Sea Salt is the literal essence of sand, stones and sea water- who wouldn’t want to smell like a cool summer breeze midst a freezing winter? The fragrance is combined with ambrette seed, red algae and grapefruit and made to evoke a sense of natural pleasure and freedom. Its fresh, light scent is easily reminiscent of sand textures and stone minerals. Yes please.

Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille Eau De Parfum
Let’s get straight to the point with this one: it’s a cosy combination of warm scents, spice and slightly smoky aromas- with a hint of sweet vanilla. Yes we know, it really is as glorious as it sounds. The big mama in Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille collection, the 50ml bottle is topped with tobacco leaf (for its muskiness) dried fruits and woody notes to complete the scent. Fun fact: there’s also a Tobacco Vanille scented candle if you can’t get enough!

Bobbi Brown - Crushed Lip Colour Series
The gorgeous (and thankfully extensive!) series of Crushed Lip Colours by Bobbi Brown boast that soft matte pigmented look- a win for any lip stain lover out there. The array of 20 shades range from nudes to pinky plums, which is great for those who find it hard to pick just one- there’s a colour for any preference. The blotted out finish in combination with Vitamins C + E shows these lip colours mean business when it comes to moisturizing lips and looking beautiful.
