LIZ EARLE SHEER SKIN TINT BRONZING FLUID
Sick of grey winter skin? Yup. You can wear this lightweight tint alone for a subtle glow, or add a tiny amount to your foundation brush, alongside your usual base, to give your complexion a much-needed boost. It’s mega hydrating too, with borage seed and avocado oils. A firm TSL favourite.
£26 for 40ml | SHOP
AQUIS LISSE LUXE HAIR TOWEL
This. Is. A. Game changer. Think quicker drying time and less damage caused by rubbing with traditional towels. The lightweight, genius fabric, uses innovation (or magic) to absorb moisture after washing, making the usual styling process a lot shorter. Less time drying, means more time in bed. It also takes up zero space inside a case, or weekend bag.

BYBI PRIME TIME PRIMING FACIAL POLISH
If you haven’t heard of BYBI, then you need to know about them. Pronto. First came my love for the multitasking hero product, Babe Balm, and next came the Prime Time discovery. Prepping the skin for make-up and general daily glow-factor, this lifts dead cells with jojoba beads and calms with marshmallow root. You won’t find any nasties here. Just all-natural, vegan, hardworking ingredients. Check out their killer Insta feed, too.
£24 for a 60ml tube | SHOP
SU-MAN SKINCARE FACIAL GLOW REJUVENATING MASK
I once had a facial with Su-Man herself, and it’s now in my top five facial treatments, ever. It’s therefore no surprise that I’m majorly in love with her skincare range. The ultra-convenient sheet mask doesn’t come much better than this, plus it’s packed with hydrating and plumping goodness, which after 10 minutes, leaves the skin feeling brand new.
£42 for 4 sachets | SHOP
CHLOÉ ABSOLU DE PARFUM
Intense Damascena rose and vanilla make this gorgeous fragrance my go-to. I’m obsessed with it because it packs a punch, yet remains fresh, without being too overpowering. As always, the Chloé bottle, complete with pleats and gold thread ribbon is a winner. £75 for 50ml | SHOP
IRIS HAND CREAM
Hand cream is a basic human right, especially throughout February. Make it a luxe one with this beautiful, floral blend. Absorbs quickly, gives a good dose of nourishment and looks pretty fancy, too. Worth the splurge.
£55 | SHOP
PEARL DROPS PURE WHITE WHITENING KIT
With so many disappointing sets and tubes around promising a whiter smile, I tried this Pearl Drops kit for the recommended 10 days, without high hopes. How wrong I was. For a quick fix that doesn’t cost the earth, this three-step system really shifts mild stains and gradually brightens teeth, after one too many black coffee hits. Once you’ve got the routine nailed, use every night and feel smug when the compliments roll in around day eight. It’s currently on offer at Boots for half the usual price. £12.50 | SHOP
EYLURE x FLEUR DE FORCE BROW DEFINE
I’m currently using this brilliant brow pencil daily and it is seriously impressive. The clever design features a very fine tip and two varying shades at either end of the pencil, so you can quickly create tiny, realistic strokes and a natural depth of colour. It also contains coconut oil, which keeps unruly hairs in place all day. Love, love, love. Bravo, Fleur.
£12 | SHOP
CHERRY SHOWER GEL
I’ve always loved Korres products and this is a new crush. The sweet scent is uplifting and the formula is perfect for use at this chilly time of year, when skin can feel itchy, dehydrated or tight, due to cold weather and central heating. The creamy gel has added wheat proteins and aloe vera to leave skin feeling soft and comforted, without stripping.
£8 for 250ml | SHOP
MOROCCANOIL DRY TEXTURE SPRAY
If your hair type is fine and lacks volume, AKA flat as a pancake at the roots, this is for you. Spray generously to add ‘grit’ when it’s freshly washed and requires texture. This bad boy and dry shampoo are my dream team duo in the morning.
£17.45 | SHOP
