All products on this page have been selected by our editorial team, however we may make commission on some products.


St. Tropez Self Tan Purity Bronzing Water, £14.67

Despite being a beauty editor, I have a slight phobia of self-tan. It’s taken time to find which ones are reliable, but this lightweight mist from St Tropez has made the cut. The believable colour and hydrating formula come highly recommended, so I gave it a go late last year and have since gone through two bottles. It has a very soft scent and dries fast with zero stickiness. Better still, it builds gradually within a few hours, so you can continue to mist up if you feel you want to go darker – it’s easy to tailor it to your needs and individual colouring without ever going overboard. Just be sure to apply some barrier cream to your lips pre-tan – thin areas of skin like this can dry out quite quickly due to the DHA tanning agent inside.Available here


Hair Gain GROW, £34.99

As someone who’s often told they “have fine hair, but lots of it” – anyone else?! – I’m always on the hunt for products that can boost density and volume. Few ever work long-term, but some supplements have stood out to me over the years. Relatively new to the market, Hair Gain caused a serious buzz quite quickly – and for good reason. Their unique formula uses organic pea shoots and biotin, both of which are proven to boost growth and scalp health. I’ve gone through several packets now and have already seen regrowth at the front of my hairline. It takes time to see results, but they will come, trust me.Available here


Clinique Even Better Make-Up SPF15, £26.10 (was £29)

Like many of us, I like a good bit of coverage from my base make-up, but still with a subtle, dewy glow. I’ve tried many foundations in my time, but I always come back to this. A creamy, liquid, it feels so comfortable on the skin – especially if you’re on the drier side like me – plus, it’s easy to blend and layer up, concealing all imperfections and uneven tone at speed. The brightening sheen it lends your complexion is unbeatable, too, though bear this in mind if you have an oilier skin type and prefer to mattify.Available here


Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze, £24

 There are endless brow products promising to give you the ‘laminated effect,’ but in my opinion, this is one of the best. Unlike other gels, it’s malleable and easy to apply without any stickiness. Simply dab a spoolie into it, before running the formula through your brows in upward strokes. You’ll notice a difference immediately – not just to wayward hairs but to their overall appearance. Expect a glossy finish that’s groomed and on-trend. Either apply it to clean brows, or on top of other products for extra definition. I have two on the go right now, so I never run out – it’s that good.Available here


Hello Klean Clarifying Scalp Soak, £10

This is one of my favourite products of all time. If you can get past the apple cider vinegar scent, you’ll love the effects. With a low lather, it’s designed to be used in place of your shampoo. For best results, leave it on for at least five minutes – or longer if you want a deeper cleanse – before rinsing it off and following up with a conditioner. It quickly detoxifies your scalp, shifting product build-up but without stripping it of moisture, thanks to balancing rice water and tamanu oil. Added vitamin B5 means hair gets some extra hydration, too. Expect your colour to look more vibrant and hair to feel thicker and denser, too – I love how stylish the bottle looks in my shower, too.Available here


Kure Bazaar French Rose Glow Polish, £15

If you like a clean, fresh finish to your nails, you’re guaranteed to love this. As nail varnishes go, it’s expensive, but worth it given how hydrating and gentle it is – specifically, it’s free from stripping ingredients like formaldehyde and synthetics. The colour is what stands out to me though – a soft, white pink, it keeps your tips looking polished and healthy-looking. Without doubt, it’s my go-to shade.Available here


P.F. Candle Co., €26.50

LA-based home fragrance company P.F. Candle Co. are well worth having on your radar. Founded by Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger, their unique scents are inspired by Californian summers. The result? Warm, musky, comforting fragrances that fill a space for hours on end. They’re really calming too and are free from phthalates, parabens and formaIdehyde. Instead, they use soy and plant-derived wax. I love the brand’s signature amber jars which can be reused once your candle has burnt out.Available here


Saie Mascara 101, £21

Choosing a good mascara is no easy task, but this one stands out from the rest. The wand has tiny, pointed bristles that catch every lash – even the small ones at the inner and outer corners – for extra depth and definition. What you’ll really love though, is the ball-tipped end, which you can use to create flicks at the outer corners, or to extend lashes with extra volume. It’s potassium-rich, too, which means lashes get a strengthening boost with continued wear. A must-try, no matter what lash look you want to create.Available here


Vieve Eye Wands, £21

Velvety and smooth, these soft kohl liners are ideal for smokey eye novices who want to create looks in record time. You simply scribble them on – no need for precision here – and buff them into your lids with either your fingers or a soft, fluffy brush. As they blend and glide so seamlessly, they’re easy to build up and layer with other shades, too. Use them all over your lids, in your lash line, or waterline – the fact they take so little time to dry down means you have plenty of time to play. There are plenty of shades available, but ‘Mahogany’ is my go-to for a soft, sultry alternative to brown and black.Available here


Gucci Rouge a Levres Satin Lipstick in Goldie Red, £35

This is one of the most universally flattering lipsticks out there. With orange undertones, it works well against pale and dark skin, while the satin texture has a romantic, feathery dry down that’s so on trend right now. Push the colour into your lips with your ring finger, or apply it directly from the bullet for a more pigmented finish. Great for both day and night, as well as every season, it really does suit everyone.Available here


iT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush, £36

 There are two make-up brushes I’m never without and this is one of them. The best foundation brush on the market, it’s double-sided, soft, easy to use and it works with all textures – in short, it ticks every box. Despite its gentle fibres, the bristles are densely packed, so any product can be buffed into the skin with ease for even coverage. I love the smaller end, too, which allows you to apply product to all those hard-to-reach areas.Available here


Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush, £30

A true repeat buy, this is without doubt one of my favourite brushes. The handy, retractable packaging was always a win, but it’s the large brush head that seals the deal. Able to cover a wide surface area, it’s great for the face and the body, too, and as it’s a kabuki, it can be used with just about everything – tan, powder, creams, liquids, you name it, it works. Nothing helps blushers and bronzers melt into the skin better, and it always leaves you with a smoother-looking complexion. Sadly, it’s now pretty hard to get hold of, but if you hunt hard enough, you’ll find a few select stockists still sell it.Coming Soon here 


Garnier Micellar Reusable Pads, £4.45 (was £8.99)

Some reusable make-up removers can feel harsh and astringent on my skin, but these ones from Garnier are the opposite. Soft and fluffy, they latch onto dirt and swiftly remove it without ever tugging at the skin. Great for sensitive skin types, use them with your go-to cleanser, or warm water – either way, you’ll get rid of every last bit of make-up on your face. Ideally, you’d wash them after three days use, but if you give them a good rinse with your cleanser, you can extend their usage time. A great everyday staple.Available here


Laneige Brightening Micellar Cleansing Water, £19.50

I love a good micellar water and am rarely without one. This one from Korean brand Laneige is brilliant as it’s gentle, but rich enough to remove all traces of make-up and give your skin a thorough cleanse. It’s full of brightening ingredients, too – think vitamin C and antioxidants – to give you a more radiant-looking complexion. Extra points go to the lack of mineral oils and alcohol, which makes it more tolerable for different skin types, but especially those prone to inflammation and sensitivities. It’s also safe enough to use around your eyes.Available here


KVD Beauty ModCon Liquid-Gel Blush, £18.70 (was £22)

Blushers don’t get better than this. With a watery texture, a little goes a long way, but the dry down is so satisfying – dewy, jelly and glow-y, you can build a healthy flush in seconds. I’ve tried many liquid blushers over the years, but this is the best in terms of longevity and fresh colour. There are so many shades available, but the one I always go back to is ‘Dewality’ – a soft, pinky fleshy-tone that will warm up any complexion.Available here


Beauty Pie Dr Glycolic Body Lotion, £50 (members price £13.66)

Dry, scaly skin is one of my biggest bugbears, and often, very few body products have tackled the issue successfully – until I tried this potent lotion from Beauty Pie. With a whopping 20% glycolic acid, it’s strong, working to break down dead skin cells and gently exfoliate for smoother-looking limbs. Despite this, you’ll find it’s still kind to skin, thanks to hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil and green tea – all of which soften, soothe and brighten. The result? Suppler-looking skin that’s more luminous in appearance. It’s brilliant for chicken-skin bumps, too, that often sit on the backs of your arms and thighs. You may feel a slight tingly sensation when you apply it, but don’t be put off – it quickly subsides.Available here
