There have been a couple of moments just recently, when we’ve felt that spring is around the corner. Optimism on hold, we still have a little way to go before we’re out of winter’s harsh grip. So we’ve rounded up ten useful, mood-boosting, skin changing and uplifting beauty finds to see you through…

CLEAN BEAUTY CO. COCONUT DREAMING
Daily thoughts of summer and tropical locations? Us, too. Well, we’ve found the next best thing - in natural, no-nasty, beauty form. Add a healthy spoonful of this wonderful powder, made up of only citrus oil, sodium bicarbonate, honey and coconut fruit powder, to your bath and lie back for a moment of far-flung bliss. Goodbye, winter blues.

FOUNTAIN – THE GLOW MOLECULE
When central heating and cold wind blasts are removing much-needed complexion moisture, it’s time to call in extra help. This fluid by Fountain should be taken twice a day to reclaim that lost glow. Does it work? It contains hyaluronic acid for a hydration top up and doesn’t taste strange, at all. After roughly two weeks’ usage, skin looks more awake and less tired around the eyes.

THIS WORKS ENERGY BANK SKIN FLASH
In a nutshell, this stuff is epic. A little colour goes a long way when you’re trying to create a fresh face and this is the quickest way to achieve it, without a ton of heavy make-up or self-tan. The results are instant, just work a small amount into your day cream for a quick pick-me-up that’s packed with vitamins.

MICHELLE KEEGAN’S REVLON NAIL ENAMEL EDIT
If you could have one nail colour capsule wardrobe, including only four shades for eternity, which shades would they include? Tricky, but we’d go for a nude, classic red, plum and a pink. Revlon’s UK Social Influencer, Michelle Keegan, must have read our mind, because she’s cherry picked her must-have colours and the edit includes all of the above. £7.99 each | Available at Boots and Superdrug (limited edition)
Both sulphate and paraben-free, Sukin is a new brand to us and we’re majorly into it. Our current find is the skin-buffing scrub to polish up winter limps. Green tea, vitamin E, jojoba and rosehip oil work harmoniously together to leave a silky soft finish. £12.99 | Planetorganic.com
THAI SQUARE SPA iMANTARA SIAMESE SOLE FOOT DUO
We’ve visited the Covent Garden spa and now we’re into the product line, created by Thai Square Spa. Get one step ahead and start working on those winter feet now, so that you’ll be ready to show them off when the warmer weather arrives. The Foot Scrub combines a reviving blend of tea tree, peppermint and walnut to buff away dry skin. Massage the Foot Lotion over hardworking heels for an intense hydration hit. £25 for a gift set including both products | Thaisquarespa.com
BRUSH WORKS HD BLENDER SPONGE SET
It’s irritating when you waste so much base within the bristles of your foundation brush, which is why were loving the comeback of the make-up sponge. These cleverly angled, vegan-friendly shapes from Brush Works are great for blending smaller areas, particularly around the eyes and nose. £9.95 | Justmylook.co.uk
FOR HER HAIR MIST
Hair perfume is huge and this is a luxury choice to scent your locks. If you love the Narciso fragrance line, then you’ll fall head over heels for this. Mist it over your finished ‘do without a worry of any oily residue. £25 | Feelunique.com
MERCI HANDY HAND CLEANSING GELS
Hand gel isn’t the most glamorous product to purchase, but it’s certainly a commuter essential when navigating tubes and buses. Merci Handy have made the on-the-go cleanser cool with fun scents for super-clean hands, without a drying effect. Our favourite is Black Vanilla.
£2.90 each | Available in Topshop stores & Mercihandy.com
BOTANICALS LEMONGRASS REVITALISING BODY WASH
If your morning shower is just about the only thing that gets a groggy mind going before 9am, aside from a huge coffee, this zesty body cleanser is perfect. A fruity blend of lemongrass, mandarin oils and tea tree awaken the senses for the day ahead. Plus, it’s handmade in England and contains 95% organic ingredients. £14 | Botanicals.co.uk
