1. “The ultimate mask. I don’t spend much on my skincare, but this is worth every penny – within ten minutes you're left with a new-found glow.”
Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, £105

2. “I try not to wash my hair too often, and this cream is so good at bringing it back to life on day three. Plus, you can add it to dry hair morning or night and it just sinks in – leaving it looking healthier and shinier.”
Windle & Moodie Invisible Day and Night Cream, £22

3. “My boyfriend and I love a mini break, and when you travel with hand luggage only this is a lifesaver – it’s the perfect size too.”                                                                                                                                Space NK Travel Bag, £24

4. “We've just bought a flat, so a handwash and cream that doubles as a cool home accessory is a bonus. The branding on anything Byredo is incredible.”
Byredo Hand Care Gift Set, £78

Eyeko Lash Alert Curler Set, £18

Georgie Coleridge Cole, Founder & Editor  

1. “a) You can’t beat sleeping on a silk pillowcase. b) If you wear an eye mask, you'll know the importance of a comfortable one. These two are a match made in heaven.”

2. “I have one of these in make-up bag, hand bag and desk drawer. Quick, easy and totally failsafe, they take your daytime look to evening-ready in seconds. Bronze moon is the best and suits everyone.”

Oskia Adaptive Tanning Mist, £48

4. “There are few things more indulgent than buying yourself expensive handwash, which is why I always add it to my Christmas list. Aesop’s are my favourite.”
