This month, we’re excited to welcome quite a few newbies to RY, including a famed Parisian haircare brand and innovative, wrinkle-busting skincare. Keep on reading to find out which brands are new to RY for October, as well as the hero products we recommend you try, ASAP.
Christophe Robin is the eponymous brainchild of a French stylist with over 30 years experience in the haircare industry. A self-dubbed ‘colourist and artisan’, Robin made his name by colouring the hair of famous clients including Australia’s own supermodel Elle Macpherson.
The Christophe Robin range is full of highly sought-out products, something reflected by his celebrity clientele, which also includes the likes of Heidi Klum, Tilda Swinton and Christina Ricci. Tapping into his love of colour, Robin has created a range of ‘shade maintenance’ products that allow the everyday woman to upkeep salon results from home. That’s not all the Christophe Robin brand focuses on, though–there’s also shampoos, conditioners, masks and more to suit every hair type.
Top pick: Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea-Salt ($61.95). One of the first of its kind, this hair scrub helps to alleviate build-up on the scalp, leaving your hair feeling fresh, soft and bouncy. Natural ingredients such as sea salt and sweet almond oil buff away dye residue, flakiness and more for healthier locks.
Ingenious Aussie brand Wrinkles Schminkles are pioneering anti-ageing solutions with their silicone sleep pads. Adhere these babies to your chest, neck and face while you sleep and reap a whole multitude of benefits.
Although it might seem a little odd to slap a silicone sticky on your body while you’re trying to snooze, this practice will help lock in hydration and prevent against creasing. It also ensures good circulation throughout the body. When these three effects are combined, they can have quite the anti-ageing power, helping to ward off wrinkles and fine lines.
Top pick: Wrinkles Schminkles Eye Smoothing Kit ($42.00). Say bye bye to saggy under eyes, crow’s feet and more–these are the answer! Pop them on your under eye area before nodding off, and then let them work their magic as you doze. Wake up, peel off and apply a little of the Morning After Glow Serum, rubbing in gently. After just a few weeks of use, you’re sure to notice a younger-looking eye area.
London-based brand skinChemists are known for unique, almost revolutionary skincare solutions formulated with out-there ingredients. Citing bee venom, snail mucin and rose quartz amongst their growing list, each product has been designed to target a specific skincare concern. Achieving optimum results without any of the pain or costs of surgery has never been easier, now that skinChemists is on the market!
Top pick: skinChemists Bee Venom Facial Serum ($77.00). Tap into the power of bee venom and restore your youth with this potent facial serum. The mix of active ingredients work together to plump, smooth and tighten the skin for powerful anti-ageing effects. Manuka honey also helps to moisturise and brighten the complexion–this serum is a miracle worker!
Calling all ladies of luxury! SHOW Beauty is the opulent haircare range that can beautify your tresses almost instantly. With a client base that includes renowned celebrities, bloggers and professionals alike, this should be your new go-to brand if you like living the high life. Each product has been expertly formulated, using only the best and most effective ingredients, including luxury staples caviar and white truffle. Add SHOW Beauty into your routine for hair even the rich and famous will lust after!
Top pick: SHOW Beauty Decadence Hair Fragrance ($100.00). Give your locks a stunning scent that will last all day–it’s the ultimate in luxe haircare products! Rose water, caramel butter and coconut milk make up this beautiful formula.
Although there’s only one product in the Beuti Skincare range, don’t be fooled–the Beauty Sleep Elixir Facial Oil is an all-round superhero when it comes to your skin. Sick of chemical-laden products that only irritated sensitive skins, the founder of this innovative company decided to create an oil using only natural ingredients. The result was a blend of 14 unique oils and extracts, from superfoods, fruits and more.
Top pick: Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir Facial Oil ($75.00). The benefits of this miracle facial oil are boundless; from smoothing and hydrating the skin to reducing pigmentation. Key ingredient Caribbean Coral is a potent anti-ager, helping to improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This facial oil should be a key component of everyone’s skincare routine! Oh, did we mention that Kate Middleton herself is a fan of this product?!
Dr Botanicals are well-known in the natural skincare world, and have quite a few accolades to their name! Their products are formulated using innovative technology and only the purest ingredients, resulting in high-quality, effective skincare solutions. They cater to every skin type imaginable, from dry and ageing through to oily, acneic and more. Plus, you won’t ever have to worry about nasty ingredients–everything used in each Dr Botanicals product is completely natural.
Top pick: Dr Botanicals Advanced Purifying Overnight Masque ($71.00). This face mask brings new meaning to the term all-rounder, as its benefits are practically endless. Perfect for the vast majority of skin types, it will purify the pores by dredging up any dirt and smoothing imperfections. Plus, it’ll leave skin looking elastic and feeling supple and hydrated.

I'm a journalism grad and avid makeup fan with an unhealthy addiction to buying nude lipsticks, no matter how similar they all may seem. I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.
