Rose Revival Body Scrub, £13 | & Other Stories

Sugar is the key ingredient in this scrub, working to buff away at dead, hardened skin for silky-smooth results. A little goes a long way and you’ll notice limbs look and feel softer immediately. Work it into dry or damp skin, starting from the ankles up. Gritty and heavy duty, it’s a bracing experience that leaves you feeling fresh and clean. The warming musk and cotton scent is a bonus.

Grooming Tweezer & Brush, £12 (was £17.50) | Benefit

You can always count on Benefit’s hard-working brow products. New to its line-up is this grooming tool. Dual ended, there’s a pair of easy-to-grip tweezers on one end and a buffing brush on the other. Use it to shape and perfect your arches and keep them sculpted at all times. We love how stiff the brush is – it works well with gels and pomades to create extra definition.

Aloe + Algae Gel Cream, £15.90 | Current State

We love this new gentle skincare brand and its Gel Cream is a standout. Not only does it absorb fast, it plumps and hydrates skin with ceramides and aloe vera. It’s full of gentle exfoliants too, so your complexion will glow afterwards. Lightweight and non-sticky, it’s suitable for all skin types and works well with other skincare and make-up textures.

The Falsies Surreal Extension Length & Volume Mascara, £11.99 | Maybelline

Maybelline can do no wrong when it comes to mascaras. This is its latest and it lives up to the hype. The chunky brush grabs every single lash for full-on volume and length, and it doesn’t smudge either, thanks to the fibre technology which enables the formula to latch onto lashes and stay put.

Fluffy Brow Fibre Gel, £18 | Eyeko

For shaping and filling your brows, this is the product to try right now. Full of fibres that mimic the appearance of real hairs, this gel will give your arches a fluffed-up effect and better density in sparser areas. Ingredients like castor oil and vitamin E keep hairs nourished too, promoting better growth with every application. Work it against the growth of your hair before running it back the other way for even distribution.

Honey Infused Hair Mask, £19 | Gisou

We love this new mask from Gisou which uses vitamins, antioxidants and honey to boost strength and elasticity of strands. It drenches them in hydration too, preventing breakage and split ends. Layer it on and leave it for up to 20 minutes to see the benefits. You can use it to slick your hair up into a neat bun too, leaving the treatment on for hours and allowing the ingredients to drip-feed your strands throughout the day. Extra points for the soft, sweet smell which is seriously addictive.

Do-It-All Stick, £8.99 | H&M

Chunky and easy to scribble on, this creamy stick can be used on lips, cheeks and eyes for an instant hit of warmth. Blend it out with your fingers or a brush, really working it into the skin to ensure it goes the distance. We love ‘Rose Coral,’ a peachy, rose tone that’s universally flattering and provides a healthier glow.

Beauty Essentials 4-In-1 Brush, £16.99 | Kiko

Who doesn’t need a 4-in-1 brush? This one by Kiko is magnetic, snapping together to take up less space in your make-up bag. One brush covers the face, the other the eyes and the flat one is made for blushers, bronzers and contour-based products. Finally, there is a precision tip brush that lets you create both flawless flicks and smudged-out wings. The quality of the brushes is impressive too – soft and gentle, yet dense enough to blend product seamlessly.

Wet Lip Oil Gloss, £20 | Kosas

Kosas has finally launched in full in the UK and we can’t get enough of these Wet Lip Oils. Using hyaluronic acid and primrose oil, a few layers give a shiny, vinyl-like finish with a pretty flush of colour that can be muted for daytime, or amped up for evening. They wear well on top of matte shades too to enhance their pigment and intensity.

Eco-Friendly Lifting Facial Roller, £20 | Kitsch

This is a great dupe for similar iterations on the market. Simply hold the handle and push the rollers into your skin – be it over the neck, along the jaw or over your cheekbones. The noduled heads give a deep, pressured massage that yields sculpted, contoured results – albeit temporary ones. When used daily, you’ll find it stimulates better blood flow and in turn, better radiance.

Base S.O.S. Coat, £16 | Manucurist

Manucurist is the nail brand of the moment, and for good reason. Its formulas strengthen and hydrate and work hard to rejuvenate brittle nails. Its new Base Coat is no different. Full of moisturising vitamins, it promotes better growth and keeps nails strong and healthy. It smooths out ridges and uneven bumps too, creating the perfect canvas for any colour to go on top.

Original Dry Shampoo, £3 | Monday

Monday’s hair products are a must-try if you haven’t already. Affordable, effective and housed in 100% recyclable packaging, its formulas work for all hair types and deliver on their promise. Its new Dry Shampoo is making waves on social media and it’s easy to see why. At just £3, it’s affordable with a lightweight texture that adds bounce, soaks up grease and lifts hair from the root. It does a bit of everything and without any chalky residue. It’s easy to brush through too, so you never have any sticky, weighty feel left behind.

Bio-Lipid Restoring Body Lotion, $15 | Naturium

You need to be quick with this popular cream, it’s already sold out twice. The velvety texture is a joy to apply, while ingredients like vitamin B and fatty acids keep skin firm, supple and smooth. There’s a hefty dose of hydration in there as well to keep dry, scaly patches of skin at bay. Unlike similar creams, you can get changed immediately after applying it – it never causes stickiness or a greasy feel. There is no scent either, so it doesn’t irritate or sensitise skin.

Wild Fig & Saffron Bath Salts, £15 | Plum & Ashby

If you have a bath at home, snap up these beautiful salts by Plum & Ashby. They transform your tub into a blissful oasis with a smell of greenery and fig that’s hugely comforting. You only need a handful to reap the benefits. Water gains a milky quality with these salts which helps to hydrate and soften skin. A great gift for anyone in need of some fresh headspace and calm.

Lip Sculpt Liner, £19 | Rodial

Harsh lip liners are a thing of the past and brands like Rodial are here to prove it. This new Sculpt Liner is creamy and smooth, meaning you can create definition and shape easily with no hard lines. Blend it out with your finger or a brush – either way, you’ll find it adds believable volume to your lips and lasts for hours thanks to its gel finish. Its rich in pigment too and it boosts the longevity of any colour you apply on top.

Lash Stunner Lash Primer, £19 | Stila

Whether you want a subtle tint or to prime your lashes for more volume, this formula from Stila ticks all the right boxes. It’s brown, offering a natural lift that looks good enough on its own. If you do want to layer up, this sets fast but smoothly, helping mascara to layer up on top for serious volume and fullness. Often dubbed ‘the best lash primer on the market,’ it removes easily too and never weighs lashes down.

Bamboo Bath Mitt, £4.99 | StylPro

Nothing beats a good body buffing tool and this mitt is so easy to use. Keep it in your shower, slide your hand inside and use it all over – the natural, bamboo fibres will buff away at skin and exfoliate it for a smoother surface. It helps stimulate sluggish blood flow too, bringing fresh, nutrient-rich blood to the surface for healthier-looking limbs. It’s great if you want to exfoliate pre-tanning, too.

Facial Razor, £18 | Tweezerman

The only time you should ever remove ‘facial fluff’ yourself is with a dedicated tool that’s gone through rigorous testing. Enter Tweezerman’s new facial razor which is deemed safe to use in between professional appointments. It has teeny tiny blades that remove the right amount of peach fuzz and also any unwanted dirt. The result? Smoother, softer skin that make-up and skincare adhere well to. Carefully designed, it never snags or pulls, it just glides gently with no damage.

Bay Berry Votive Candle, £18 | Urban Apothecary

This little votive candle is a real treat for the senses. Fruity and fresh, it brightens a dull day – and mood – with notes of plum, blackberry, wild rose, sage and sandalwood. It’s uplifting but with a gentle warmth that soothes and brings comfort to a small or large space. Natural and vegan, all Urban Apothecary candles burn nicely too without filling the air in plumes of smoke.

Hydrating Micellar Cleansing Water, £6.99 | Botanics

Hydrating and soothing, this micellar water effectively dissolves make-up but without drying out your skin. Ingredients like snow mushroom, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid keep moisture sealed in, while tiny micelle particles latch onto dirt and make-up and break it down for a thorough cleanse. It’s also dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested, so it’s safe for all skin types to use and it never causes any eye irritation either. It’s easy to see why it consistently receives five-star reviews.
