Best Luxe Product

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Highlighting Fluid, £47 | Chanel

Able to be used on the body, face and hair, this three-in-one product is an industry favourite for a reason. With a beautiful shine, its reflective qualities create a satin-like glow and when applied to the hair, it adds a coppery, sun-blushed tint that enhances your existing hair colour. If you’re using it on the face or body, try mixing it in with your body cream or foundation for a more natural-looking finish. A luxe choice, but a worthy investment given the expensive finish.

It offers a silky, shimmering finish on all skin tones, adding a sunlight-visible shimmer without darkening the skin. The ingredient-conscious formula – cruelty-free, paraben-free and sulphate-free – hydrates to leave skin feeling smooth, shiny and soft.
