Cult Hand Cream: Yope Salvia Hand Cream, £8.99
A favourite among editors, this soothes parched hands with nourishing vitamin E and shea butter. The pleasing packaging is a bonus too.
Relaxing Salts: Dr Salts 100 per cent Dead Sea Bath Salts, £7
We stockpile these salts in our bathroom cabinets for a relaxing and therapeutic soak. Packed with soothing eucalyptus and softening essential oils.
MARKS & SPENCER:
The Best Seller: Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream, £22
It’s little wonder this once commanded a wait list of over 7,500 people. It delivers a mega dose of hydration, plumps out fine lines and revives tired-looking skin in 10 minutes flat. No surprise that nine tubs are reportedly sold every hour.
Dual-Purpose Buy: Lifeology Waterlily & Pink Pepper Fragranced Burst Hand & Body Lotion, £4
Keep this sink side and apply liberally for silky soft skin. It leaves a lingering and deliciously uplifting scent with none of the sticky residue you can often get from other creams.
Best Base: Autograph Custom Colour, £12.50
This is the perfect way to tweak your favourite foundation, transforming it into your desired shade. Choose between four variants: light or dark to adjust shade, and purple or green to combat sallow or red undertones. A summer must-have when your foundation doesn’t match your natural, bronzed glow.
Frugal Fragrance: M&S Collection Rose & Amber EDT, £12.50
At last, a variant on a classic scent, in which amber provides an elegant counterpoint for the hero bloom to shine. Feels sophisticated and expensive.
The Best Seller: Lacura Caviar Night Cream, £6.99
The whole sell-out Lacura range is award winning, but this cream was the star, shifting over 60,000 jars on the first day of its launch alone. Coveted by everyone from beauty bloggers to top experts, it contains skin-firming caviar delivering a juicy dose of vitamins and minerals for overall glow.
Impressive Dupes: Lime Basil & Mandarin Glass Candle, £3.99
We will always love the original candles from Jo Malone for their luxurious feel, but there’s no doubt Aldi have created a clever dupe at a fraction of the price. Everyone’s favourite? Lime Basil & Mandarin is most beloved by fans, but Aldi also do a version of Pomegranate Noir and Blackberry Bay.
The Best Seller: Boutique HD Illuminating Drops In Champagne, £4 and Boutique Lengthening Mascara Black, £3
Sainsbury’s top five best sellers are all from their Boutique make-up range. Our picks? These pretty highlighting drops and their inky, jet black mascara. The former has an impressive pigment that’s beautifully sheer, while the mascara delivers a fluttery finish that’s extremely effective for just £3. All completely vegan and cruelty-free.
Skin Soother: Child’s Farm Moisturiser Grapefruit & Organic Tea Tree Oil, £4.50
This range is intended for children, but we’ve been known to use it ourselves for its skin-friendly formulas with natural oils and healing tea tree. Soothes eczema and dry flaky patches within days. We also love the cooling, fresh sensation it gives after application.
Shower Staple: Love Beauty And Planet Bountiful Moisture Shower Gel, £6
Its warming, rose scent ensures every shower is enjoyable while Murumuru butter helps to lock in moisture and keep skin feeling supple.
Nail Essential: Stylfile Gel Polish Remover, £5.50
We stumbled across this when we were desperate to remove old gel nails. Hold on the nail for five minutes, it make light work of removal at a fraction of an in-salon price. Ensure you apply cuticle oil or hydrating hand cream afterwards, to prevent nails becoming brittle and flaky.
The Best Seller: NSPA Hot Cloth Polish, £6.40
A Liz Earle copycat but nonetheless effective at removing daily grime without stripping the skin. A little goes a long way so you can expect to be enjoying this for months.
Beautiful Blush: George Blush Soft Touch Stick, £3.95
These innovative blush sticks look great on cheeks - even eyes and lips - for a radiant, youthful finish, instantly warming up any dull, lacklustre complexions.
Long-Lasting Lipsticks: George Matte Lipsticks, £3 (was £4)
Get a fuller pout fast with these creamy lipsticks that offer a variety of suits-all shades. Ideal for when you want a quick, pulled-together look.
