What to buy in June: The W&H shopping edit

Why you can trust Woman & Home Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.



1. Haus Labs Atomic Shake Lip Lacquer

RRP: £25.99

If you're after a long-lasting lipstick that you can apply without the assistance of one of the best lip liners, the Lip Lacquer from Lady Gaga's new make-up collection has some serious staying power. Choose from six shades, from deep red to warm beige, and shake the applicator for shine that lasts all day.


2. Skin Rocks the Cream Cleanser 

RRP: £32

Whether or not you double cleanse, using one of the best cleansing balms to remove make-up before going in with a soothing cleanser, this Skin Rocks option should be on your radar. It gently removes make-up, SPF and more whilst hydrating the skin and working to repair its barrier, so it's great for those with sensitive and/or dry skin.


3. Manucurist Active Glow

RRP: £16

If you're giving your nails a break from your regular BIAB nails or acrylic appointments, you need this treatment from Manucurist. It works to heal and strengthen the nails - with nourishing ingredients such as sweet almond oil and raspberry extract - at the same time as giving them a glossy, shiny finish.


4. Hair by Sam McKnight Sundaze Sea Spray

RRP: £26

As the hot weather amps up and so does the humidity, you may find yourself struggling with unruly, frizzy hair, especially if your strands have a curly or wavy texture. Fear not, as this sea spray is one of the best hair products for humidity, to avoid Monica-Geller-in-Barbados levels of frizz; it also protects your hair from UV rays, which can lead to breakage. Scrunch into wet hair before air drying or diffusing, or spritz in-between hair wash days for instant beachy waves.


5. Monday Muse The Powder Enzyme Exfoliant

RRP: £45

Though it comes out as a powder, this exfoliant transforms into a creamy, cleanser-like liquid with a few drops of water. When used a couple of times a week, this gentle product evens skin texture and dull complexions, while de-clogging pores and limiting sebum production, meaning it's ideal for sensitive skin.



1. Erica Smocked Ticking Stripe Sundress

RRP: £65

Wondering what to wear to Wimbledon? This smocked sundress is perfect for throwing on when the sun is out but you don't want to show too much skin. The thick straps are as stretchy as the comfy, shirred bodice, and it still feels lightweight and breezy, even though the tiered skirt is lined with an extra layer. And there's pockets! Made from 100% cotton, this will last you for many summers to come.


2. Cream Linen Blend Tie Shoulder Meg Playsuit

RRP: £59

We've been thinking about how to style linen pants for work recently, but when it's truly heating up outside, this breathable linen playsuit is perfect. Coming in two different colors - a goes-with-everything black or an understated cream - the shirred back is super comfy, and the tie-up straps make it adjustable, too.


3. Kallie V-Neck Frill Jumpsuit

RRP: £139


This jumpsuit exudes the stealth wealth trend, but is an affordable option if you're wondering what to wear to a wedding. The wide-leg trousers will suit anyone, and if you're worried about how to wear ruffles, these frilly sleeves aren't too OTT.


4. Light Before Dark Priya Paisley Asymmetrical Mini Dress

RRP: £54

This dress is a dead ringer for the dress Carrie Bradshaw wears in Sex and the City when she falls into a lake (if you know, you know), so if you're wondering how to dress like Carrie Bradshaw, look no further. The asymmetrical hem of this gorgeous dress features frills which climb all the way up along one of the spaghetti straps.


5. Yellow Tropical Frill Hell Smock Dress

RRP: £40


Struggling with what to wear to a festival? This oversized smock dress is easy to throw on when temperatures are high, and the bright, tropical print means you can just as easily pack it in your suitcase if you need holiday outfit ideas.


6. Monki Cotton Midi Dress

RRP: £35

We're obsessed with this dress at the woman&home office. It comes in a range of colours, is extremely flattering, and we love the midaxi length; it sits high enough that you could still show off a pair of the best cowboy boots, or pair with the best white trainers.


7. M&S Linen Rich Belted Utility Shorts

RRP: £22.50


These loose-fitting yet high-waisted shorts are made from linen and viscose, so they're airy and comfortable, making for a smart investment for summer. If you're looking for a smart-casual look, pair the shorts with a crisp white shirt for your summer capsule wardrobe.


8. Modibodi One Shoulder One Piece

RRP: £59

You may have heard of period pants, but did you know you could also get period-proof swimwear? This one-shoulder swimsuit is so stylish you'd never know it's also working to help you feel comfortable and supported if you're swimming or sunbathing while menstruating. However, it is best suited to those days where your flow is lighter.


9. River Floral Tiered Midi Dress

RRP: £149


For occasions attended in very hot weather this summer, it can be hard to find a flattering, breathable dress that'll make you feel comfortable and stylish all day. This midi dress has spaghetti straps and a lightweight tiered skirt that's perfect for a heatwave, while the thicker bodice and matching belt will make you feel supported.



1. AllPlants First Taste Bundle

RRP: £25

It can be hard to find the time to make healthy, satisfying meals that are quick and easy, but takeaway and frozen meals often sacrifice nutrition for ease. AllPlants offer bundles and subscriptions of plant-based, hearty meals, portioned for one person, to keep in your freezer for the next time you can think of nothing less appealling than spending the whole evening cooking. What's more, first-time customers can get 40% off their first box with AllPlants, as well as 15% off the second and third.


2. Le Creuset Stoneware Cafetiere

RRP: £65

If you're wondering what is Barbiecore, the pink-heavy trend isn't limited to fashion. We're coveting this baby pink Le Creuset cafetiere, which comes with a ten-year guarantee, and is made from hard-wearing stoneware.
