Beauty Cream Contour Stick, £28 | 19/99

Chunky to grip and creamy in texture, these sculpting sticks glide across skin for instant, believable definition – whether that’s on your cheeks, eyelids or even lips. They’re compact too, so you can chuck them in your bag and quickly blend them out with your fingers on the go. A great multitasker for your make-up bag.

CC Eye Cream, £35 | Erborian

Fans of Erborian’s cult CC cream will be pleased to see the brand is expanding with CC Body and CC Eye products. We’re loving how the latter corrects dark circles and cancels out unwanted tones. Plus, the lightweight, silky texture is easy to layer up without any of that tell-take cakey look. Meanwhile, added centella asiatica helps to strengthen skin and boost hydration for a plumper, dewier finish. It even contains SPF20 for extra protection.

Tinted Face Powder, £27 | Jones Road

These clever powders will help you nail the ‘no make-up make-up’ look. Lightweight and with a subtle tint, they control shine while smoothing out skin tone with just enough coverage that never looks powdery or flaky. Use a kabuki brush to buff them into skin, tapping off any excess before you go in. Ideal for the warmer months ahead, you barely feel them on your skin.

Micro Brow Pencil, £9 | Morphe

At just £9, this pencil is an easy way to cheat the look of well-groomed brows. Use it to create realistic, hair-like strokes that won’t budge – trust us when we say the waxy formula sets fast. The fine nib allows for total precision, while the spoolie on the other side helps you deposit the product evenly. Unlike some, this never gives brows a dusty appearance, with numerous shades on offer to help you find a perfect match.

HydraLip Blush, £15 | Sculpted By Aimee

Hyaluronic acid and jojoba seed oils come together in these nourishing lip balms to keep dryness and tightness at bay. There are six suits-all shades that are ideal for daytime – think soft pinks and warming peach tones to keep your lips looking healthy and softly flushed. Easy to apply, you don’t need a mirror – just swipe on and go.

Sunny Honey Tan Boosting Anti-Ageing Body Oil SPF 30, £28 | Coco & Eve

This has had plenty of hype recently, and for good reason. It’s a silky-smooth oil that lends skin a natural wash of glow with minimal commitment. Add to that numerous skincare benefits – such as strengthening peptides, protective SPF30 and nourishing oils – and you have a formula that ticks all the boxes. Massage it in with your hands and watch a golden bronze colour develop. Just make sure you take the time to work it in properly to minimise any greasiness.

Preen Screen SPF50 Reapplication Mist Skinscreen™, £32 | Ultra Violette

If you want to protect your skin with minimal fuss, an SPF spray is for you. This one does a bit of everything: it locks make-up in place, gives skin a dewy sheen and protects against harmful UV rays. The best part is it’s completely weightless – the fine mist absorbs fast and never leaves your skin feeling tacky or wet. Added ingredients like aloe vera leaf extract and niacinamide help to keep inflammation at bay and oil levels balanced, while vitamin C brightens skin tone over time with regular use.

Soleil Des Vignes Oil Elixir, £31 | Caudalie

The scent these new elixirs will have you at hello. Designed for use on the body, hair and décolleté, each one is full of skin-quenching oils – including argan, grape seed and shea. The formulas penetrate deep down to soften skin and get rid of scaly patches and it also keeps the ends of your hair looking smooth and shiny. If it came down to it, Soleil des Vignes is the one we would choose – we can’t get enough of the coconut-y, summery fragrance.

The Power Up Blend Bath & Shower Oil, £80 | Beauty Pie

Created in partnership with aromatherapy expert Kathy Phillips – founder of This Works – these new body washes are something special. Using potent blends of different essential oils, we love Power Up which contains notes of geranium, cedarwood, patchouli and lemon to give you an instant mood boost. Because they’re oils, you’ll find you only need a little at a time, too.

Travel Organiser Bag, £20 | Cult Beauty

If you’re looking for an inexpensive but handy travel bag for your next break, make it this one from Cult Beauty. Complete with several internal zip-lock bags and six side pockets, it has plenty of space for you to stash away all your essentials. All the compartments are designed to ensure your products can stand upright too, so nothing ever leaks or transfers. Functional and stylish, it’s impressive how much you can squeeze in.

Skin And Makeup Enhancing Mist, £37 | Lisa Eldridge Beauty

This is one of our favourite launches from make-up artist Lisa Eldridge. Containing niacinamide, it tightens pores, brightens skin and improves uneven tone with regular use. It also acts as a primer for make-up and works hard to seal it in place, preventing creasing and sliding throughout the day. Clinically tested for all skin types, it never causes irritation – it just improves hydration and overall radiance. Keep one on your desk and one in your bag for quick touch-ups – it’s the easiest way to revive your make-up when time is of the essence.

Sundaze Sea Spray, £26 | Hair By Sam McKnight

Not only does this protect your hair and scalp against UV damage, it also gives your strands effortless texture, grit and definition. Unlike some salt sprays, it doesn’t dry your hair out either, thanks to added vitamin B5 and plant extracts which keep moisture sealed in. You’ll find it brushes out nicely too, without the need to tug or pull. Great for those looking for more volume.

Hard Water Conditioner, £18 | Hello Klean

Hello Klean is known for its scalp-clearing formulas that get rid of excess build-up and dirt. Its latest launch does all of this while conditioning your hair with hyaluronic acid, reishi mushrooms and bond-repairing rice proteins. Regular use will strengthen your strands and reduce the feeling of brittleness. It will also prevent any damage caused by mineral-heavy water, ensuring your strands stay soft, supple and glossy. The best bit? Unlike similar formulas, it never feels heavy or slick – once you’ve rinsed it away, you’ll find hair has better bounce and doesn’t feel weighed down.

Metal Detox Leave-In Hair Cream, £19.60 (was £28) | L'Oréal Professionnel

L’Oréal’s Metal Detox range is hugely popular and its new Leave-In Cream is set to be another hit. The key ingredient is glicoamine, which removes metal particles from your hair and prevents new ones from forming. The result is better shine, glossiness and a healthier appearance overall. It has a rich texture, but one that feels like it’s really making a difference. Apply it to damp hair and leave it in overnight or during the day for best results. You’ll notice your brighter and fresher-looking hair almost immediately.

The Classic Comb, £31 | Minimalista

These new combs would make a great addition to any haircare routine. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, the wide teeth make light work of the most stubborn knots. Keep one in your shower to comb through any conditioners or masks – this will also help the ingredients latch onto your strands for visible results. Extra points go to the covetable pouch, which is designed to keep the combs free from dirt and dust.

Superblue Blemish Stick, £43 | Solaris Labs NY

You’d be hard pushed to find a negative review of this innovative blemish stick. Proven to reduce the size of spots and speed up healing time, it uses red and blue LED lights to kill off acne-causing bacteria. It’s small and compact, which makes it ideal for targeting newer breakouts and hard-to-reach areas. Always use it on dry skin and over time you’ll notice better-looking skin without any peeling or irritation along the way.
