New indie have-to-haves your Instagram’s been waiting for

Nothing gives us warm and fuzzy feelings quite like posting pretty pictures of our latest skin care favourites - especially when they're sufficiently 'indie' and help to acquire us countless 'cool points' (yes, we're basic). So, knowing that you're no doubt hungry for new Insta-fodder (we feel you), we've rounded up all of the most photogenic new launches (that also work WONDERS).

From the country that gave us Bjork (praise be!), Iceland's exports are unfailingly kooky and always amazing. Our new skin care obsession is no exception... The brainchild of mother-and-daughter duo - Elin and Frida - {Rå Oils} phenomenal tinctures are out. of. this. WORLD. Truly miraculous, Cult were bowled over by these precious, problem-solving blends, originally inspired by the quest to combat Frida's chronic acne. Trust us, the results are phenomenal and, the fact the bottles look so photogenic is a welcome side-note to this skin care fairytale.

From the farm that provides all the biggest and best beauty names with their oils, {Uma's} creator decided to harvest the fruits of her labour and bring her own range into being. Exquisitely pretty (#TeamCB are swooning), these skin care confections are things-of-beauty and formidably brilliant: boasting the purest, most potent plant extracts to heal and re-balance all skin types. The youth-boosting {Aloe-Rose Toner} is what your bathroom #shelfie has been waiting for...

Total game-changers, {Allies of Skin} is still thrillingly left-of-centre - an insider secret the beautysphere strives to keep close to its chest (understandably). With super-charged actives to tackle the 21st Century woes (pollution, we're looking at you...), these multi-tasking marvels were created with the 'modern multi-hyphenate' in mind - saving time on your everyday face maintenance as they make picking product a breeze (each of these multi-taskers suits all). Gender neutral and stylishly streamlined, we can't get enough of the {All-Day Pollution Repair Mask} - a godsend for city slickers the world over.

Bewitchingly (oc)cult, {Rituel de Fille} make breathtaking make up. In glossy black cases that look like enamel, these precious treasures are so cute we'd quite like to lick them (weird?). Sprinkled with stars, these upgrade any flat-lay, and don't get us started on the stunning, skin-friendly formulas. Practically cooked in a cauldron, you may not see 'eye of newt' listed but, each of these creamy concoctions is packed with all-natural pigments to lend a believable flush, or cloak lips with chic, just-bitten colour. And now with a range of {Ethereal Veils} to hide every skin sin, your make up's in line for a serious upgrade...

We reckon you're finally ready for *the* must-have jelly the beauty world's breath has been baited for. Without doubt the highlight of 2018, Farsàli's {Jelly Beam} has landed and it's everything you dreamed (and more). Made to be gazed at (then shared across social), this hypnotic glow-giver lends a drool-inducing gleam to your cheekbones or bare collar bones, while a dab can be mixed with your oil or foundation to ensure you're gorgeously gilded all over.

Bringing the kitsch (but incredible) 'seoul' of Korea to your skin care wardrobe, {Saturday Skin} is an Instagram fixture. The latest additions - the {Rub-a-Dub Refining Peel} and {Press Pause Beauty Essence} - are much more than purely good looking (but that always helps). A great way to banish the everyday 'grey' that accompanies urban living (yuk), the 'peel gel' eliminates dulling dead cells to leave skin soft and glowing (without irritation). Follow with bounce-boosting essence to get your glow on (these are excellent fodder for 'stories').
