News — Beauty Bonanza


With blazing sun one week, to a deluge of rain the next, the British Summer is well underway!

Such changeable conditions can play havoc on the skin, so this month we’re looking at what’s new and trending in Cwmbran Centre’s beauty stores to both keep your skin as fresh as a daisy, and update your look after what has been a more than challenging year.

The Body Shop

Well-known for their stance against animal testing and commitment to Fair Trade with their suppliers, The Body Shop is also at the forefront for new products to keep your skin at its best.

New in-store is their Drops of Youth™ Bouncy Jelly Mist.  Simply spritz-on and it will help protect your skin from pollution and blue light as well as aid in preserving its healthy-looking bounce.


With a huge range of fragrances, cosmetics and toiletries, it’s almost impossible to pop into Bodycare without finding something you need!  If you think that nothing finishes off your look more than perfectly manicured nails, why not have a little fun this summer with their range of Elegant Touch printed nail sets?  We particularly love the Tropical Collection Copacabana set, with its cute pineapple print.


Exclusive to Boots this summer is the MAC Summer Vibes Set, featuring five M·A·C must-haves, specially curated for a hit of high-impact glamour. The set includes full-size Twig Lipstick, Extended Play Mascara and Amber Lights Eyeshadow for a standout summer look – PLUS it’s all packed in a glorious limited-edition holographic makeup bag.  Worth over £75, Boots are currently selling this for £35, but hurry – only available whilst stocks last.

The Fragrance Shop

New in at The Fragrance Shop is the elegantly bottled La Belle, by Jean Paul Gaultier.  This intense Eau de Parfum from Gaultier’s Garden is an irresistible forbidden blend of radiant seductiveness. And did we mention the lovely bottle?

House of Fraser

With the star-quality line-up of brands at House of Fraser (including Benefit, Clinique, Clarins, Estée Lauder, YSL and Lancôme), there’s no better time to pop in and reboot your skin routine!

YSL’s Pure Shots Skincare Range is now available in-store, including their Night Reboot Serum, which helps to encourage the removal of dead skin cells whilst simultaneously hydrating skin, leaving you with a more radiant complexion – as if you’ve had a full night’s rest.  Bliss!

The Perfume Shop

Fragrance of the month at The Perfume Shop is Alien by Mugler. A radiant, warm and sensual fragrance created with floral, woody and amber revelations, it also comes in a refillable bottle!


With prices starting at less than a pound, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the Primark beauty range.  New in-store this season is a range of Paddle Hair Brushes, and Hair Detangler’s to help keep your locks looking luscious!


If you’re looking for a tan this year, but can’t get away, fake tan is the way to get that sun-kissed glow!  Superdrug has a huge range of fake tan & bronzers, including our fave, Bondi Sands Self-Tanning Foam.  Disappearing into the skin almost instantly (with no stickiness!), the lightweight foam is easy to apply, and offers up a bronze to make you look like you’ve spent weeks on the beach rather than in the house.


If it’s a new look you’re after, changing your hair colour can make a real statement.  In addition to the wide range of make-up and skincare at great prices in Wilko, they’ve also currently got a 2 for £9 offer on Garnier Nutrisse hair colours, so you can change your look even more often, or just stock up on your favourite colour for less!

Whatever your budget, there’s a beauty store for you at Cwmbran Centre!
