PURSOMA Detox Beauty Body Brush, £29
Body brushes are a must-have in the warmer weather. While there are heaps available, none give gritty, thorough exfoliation quite like this one.

It also encourages better blood flow – ideal if you’re sat at a desk for most of the day. Use it on dry skin, then massage in a body oil or cream after. You’ll find it helps products to better absorb, too.

Rodial The Teddy Brush, £45
We’re always on the hunt for good make-up brushes and this month, Rodial’s Teddy Brush gets our vote. Using vegan, synthetic bristles, it works with all formulas – be it powder, creams or liquids. It’s densely packed, too, so application is firm, but seamless, minimising streaks and unwanted patches. The domed tip is a nice addition, too, as it allows you to apply product to those hard-to-reach areas – around the nose and eyes – for an even, well-concealed finish.
