Water-inspired products to refresh your beauty routine

Summer isn’t quite over yet, which is why we’re looking at some of the best water-inspired beauty products to refresh your routine and keep your skin, hair and body hydrated.

From micellar technology, to hyaluronic acid, this is our edit of the best water-based beauty products.

Jurlique's Activating Water Essence has been formulated as an additional step in your skincare routine to flush your skin with moisture and keep it hydrated. Applied before your serum and moisturiser, it helps to prep and plump-up the skin as well as soothe and nourish.

NUXE's Delicious Fragrance Water can be spritzed onto both the skin and hair to energise, uplift the senses and leave a beautiful scent behind. It contains notes of sweet orange, coconut and vanilla, which infuses your skin and hair with the most tropical fragrance; perfect for keeping the summer going all year long.

Huxley's Essence Grab Water contains a cocktail of powerful and anti-ageing ingredients, including acai berry, Vitamin E, quinoa and Sahara prickly pear to nourish and hydrate the skin, and keep the complexion glowing. Free from common irritants like parabens and mineral oil, it's best applied after cleansing and toning.

Vita Liberata's Invisi Foaming Tan Water is perfect for those wishing to get a natural tan without the typical fake tan scent or risk of transfer onto bedding and clothing. It comes out as a lightweight foam which melts into the skin and dries instantly so you get no stickiness or greasiness.

One of our favourite foundations when skin needs a hydration and radiance boost, Estée Lauder's Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup is perfect for adding a gorgeous glow that lasts all day. It has the same great staying power as the original foundation, but gives a hint of radiance as opposed to the traditional mattifying base.

The this works Evening Detox Cleansing Water is perfect for those wishing to deep cleanse without needing a full balm and hot cleansing cloth. The formula contains sweet almond oil and aloe vera to soothe and hydrate, while powerful ingredients remove harmful pollutants and impurities from the skin.

Everything The Ordinary brings out is considered beauty gold, which is why we're bowled over by their Marine Hyaluronics. Applied before moisturiser, this lightweight cream melts into the skin, and although it attracts and holds onto water like hyaluronic acid, it has a much lighter texture and feel; perfect for anyone with oily or combination skin.

This multi-purpose product from BBB London works as a primer, moisturiser and after-care treatment for facials or brow treatments. It contains organic rose water, cucumber, aloe vera and plum seed oil to instantly nourish and plump-up the complexion.

Enriched with hyaluronic acid microspheres, this translucent setting powder not only helps to keep foundation and makeup in place all day long, but also keeps the skin beautifully glowing and hydrated.

The water-based formula of this lip plumper helps to lock in essential moisture, which naturally helps to keep the lips volumised, fuller-looking and plumped-up. It glides on to moisturise, and is the perfect priming step for lipstick thanks to its non-sticky formulation.

If you love the idea of tanning, but don't have time to spend hours blending it in, you will love James Read's H20 Tan Mist, which is a lightweight spritz that gives a gorgeous golden glow with minimal effort.

Inspired by the healing properties of water, the Rituals Banyu Body Cream also combines Bali sea salt and giant kelp to nourish and hydrate the skin for a long period of time. It melts into the skin upon application for long-lasting results.

A lip colour that combines the longevity of a stain, the creamy texture of a lipstick and the hydrating properties of a gloss, the Yves Saint Laurent Val Pop Water is perfect for anyone wanting a long-lasting lip colour without compromising on moisture.

Utilising unique and innovative micellar technology, the Kérastase Aura Botanica Bain Micellaire Riche Shampoo is perfect for gently cleansing dry and dehydrated locks to breathe moisture and life back into them again. Plus, it's made from 96% naturally derived ingredients.



Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
