 Beauty Director

1. Susanne Kaufmann Bath Oil For The Senses

“I love this pine and eucalyptus-rich bath oil. It’s an antidote to stress that feels luxurious on the skin. I’ll be buying a couple for friends and family this Christmas. Full of lavender and patchouli, it fills your bathroom with a relaxing scent and soothes any tension. A treat.”

2. MEDIK8 Press & Glow Daily Exfoliating PHA Tonic

“When it comes to minimising breakouts and taking down inflammation, this is one of my favourite exfoliators. It’s gentle – it contains aloe vera – but it still whisks away dead skin cells and dirt for better glow, smoothness and bounce. You see the results immediately – make-up glides on afterwards. One of my favourites from the brand.”

Shop here.

3. VIEVE Eye Wand Library

“My eyes are firmly on VIEVE’s Eye Wand Library this Black Friday. I haven’t decided if I am keeping it for myself or sharing it with others just yet. Either way, the crayons are some of the best for creating a modern eye in seconds. Easy to blend and buff out, they are versatile and come in several shades that look great day and night.”

Shop here.

4. Escentric Molecules 01 EDT

“I’m nearing the end of my travel-sized bottle of this, so I’ll be snapping up another this Black Friday. It will always be one of my favourites for its warm, woody notes that adapt with the wearer’s natural pheromones, so it becomes unique to you. Worth the hype.”

1. Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream

“Black Friday is the ideal time to pick up a luxury product at a discounted price, which is why I’ll be stocking up on this cream from Augustinus Bader. The formula is a favourite of mine in the winter. It’s restorative and works hard to soak up dryness. I love it during the colder months – it’s very comforting.”

Shop here.

2. Sarah Chapman Skinesis Ultimate Cleanse

“It’s hard to beat this super luxe cleansing balm, which doubles up as a face mask – just leave it on when you need an extra dose of hydration. It works at speed to boost your skin’s moisture levels and the slippery texture also aids a good facial massage.”

Shop here.

3. Mirror Water Smooth Body Oil

“It’s a good time of year to invest in bodycare. We tend to focus so much on our faces, but our bodies need hydration throughout the winter too. This body oil is a must for me. It’s formulated with a rich combination of omegas to feed dry, lacklustre skin for a smoother, more refined appearance. It’s never sticky or gloopy either.”

Shop here.


Beauty Expert & SL Contributor

1. Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream

“This is the one cream I’ll be buying a few of this Black Friday. It’s so hydrating, with nourishing, plumping ingredients that make light work of any dry areas of skin. It’s a lifesaver throughout the winter and it’s never oily or greasy, so it sits nicely under make-up.”

Shop here.

2. Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream

“Eye creams are worth it in my opinion – especially this one by Biossance. It’s the only one I’ve tried that keeps dark circles under control. It’s also hydrating and works nicely with my concealer, boosting its glow but also its longevity.”

Shop here.

3. Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder

“I’ve fallen back in love with this clever setting powder. It has a semi-matte finish with just enough sheen to give you that healthy, glowing appearance. I use it to set make-up under my eyes, but also to set my lipliner. It’s great for knocking back unwanted shine.”

Shop here.

4. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

“This is a classic for a reason. I’ve recently ditched foundation and replaced it with strategic application of this concealer, just using a little where it’s really needed. Creamy, smooth and malleable, it’s so easy to blend out and layer up. The shade range is great, too.”

Shop here.

1. Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads

“I love these little magic pads. In just one swipe, my skin looks so much brighter and feels smoother too. After I’ve used them, applying make-up is always a dream. They are great for sensitive skin and can be used twice a day to even out skin tone and reduce pore size.”

Shop here.

2. Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush in ‘Nearly Rose’

“This is one of my favourite blushers of all time – particularly the shade ‘Nearly Rose’. It works for all skin tones and gives your complexion such a healthy flush. I love the smooth formula – it’s so easy to blend and has zero shimmer, so you just get a plump, glossy, juicy-looking cheek.”

Shop here.

3. Kosas Brow Pop Nano

“With a super fine tip, this brow pencil allows you to mimic the look of realistic hairs with ease. Plus, it is budge-proof – it doesn’t move at all compared to traditional pencils on the market.”

Shop here.

4. Sweed Lashes

“In my opinion, Sweed does the best and most natural-looking false lashes out there. They are so good and last for hours.”

Make-Up Artist & SL Contributor

1. NARS Light Reflecting Eye Brightener

“This is one of my favourite products of the year. It eliminates the look of dark circles and brightens up the whole eye area. You only need a few dabs of the formula to see a difference. It’s the answer to looking fresher and more awake. I never want to be without it.”

Shop here.

2. Aromatherapy Associates Essential Bath & Shower Oils

“I love the bath and shower oils from Aromatherapy Associates, especially at this time of year when I need a bit of headspace. Taking a moment for yourself becomes crucial as we move into party season and all the Christmas chaos, so I can’t recommend this set enough. Each one creates a spa-like experience at home.”

Fashion, Beauty & LuxeGen Junior Editor & Broadcaster

1. Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer

“This concealer is my favourite discovery of 2023. It offers full but weightless coverage, concealing and correcting redness, blemishes and any unwanted texture. It has a lovely brightening quality to it, which I love for under the eyes. Creamy and easy to build up, it’s a make-up bag staple for me.”

Shop here.

2. Rose Inc Cream Blush Refillable Cheek & Lip Colour

"Multipurpose products will always have a place in my make-up bag and this is one of my favourites. A creamy blush in the perfect autumnal shade, I apply it using a fluffy brush or my fingers. Since it has a warm undertone, it almost works like a blusher and bronzer in one. Plus, you can pop the colour onto your lips or lids for a more tonal look."

Shop here.

3. Maison Margiela When The Rain Stops EDT

“I always see Black Friday as the perfect time to snap up pricier fragrances that I wouldn’t shell out for ordinarily. Space NK has one of the best edits – particularly when it comes to Maison Margiela. I’ll be investing in its ‘When The Rain Stops’ scent. It’s so clean and fresh but still has a little depth for evening wear. I love that it works year round and lingers on the skin for hours.”

Journalist & SL Beauty Columnist

1. Augustinus Bade The Face Oil

“Any time there's a good deal to be had, I find myself stockpiling this face oil. Full of antioxidant-rich plant oils like pomegranate and babassu, this lightweight oil really suits my skin and it visibly brightens and reinstates elasticity. It is expensive but a little goes a long way. I keep a bottle by my bed alongside a gua sha and spend 5-10 minutes every night just massaging the contours of my face. As well as being a relaxing pre-bed ritual, I do find my skin is brighter and less puffy the next morning.”

Shop here.

2. JVN Complete Styling Blowout Milk

“I love the lightness of this styling milk and use it religiously every time I blow dry my hair. As well as keeping frizz and flyaways at bay, it leaves each strand feeling softer and with a piece-y definition that only a professional blow dry usually yields.”

Shop here.

3. Jo Loves Christmas Trees Candle

“For me, anything that captures the magical scent of pine trees is a winner, so I have fallen for this gorgeously evocative iteration. Featuring notes of incense, amber and lavender, it's Christmas in a candle.”

Shop here.


Make-Up Artist, Author & SL Contributor

1. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Jellyfish Palette

“An icon for a reason, this is a great palette to snap up on Black Friday. First, I love the new Jellyfish packaging, but inside you have those amazing, soft, velvety shades that are ideal for creating a warm, healthy-looking glow. It’s all you need to see you through party season and to create several different looks on both the eyes and cheeks. Use a big fluffy brush and sweep it over all of the shades or just a few at a time – it couldn’t be easier.”

Shop here.

2. Space NK Caribbean Shores Hand Wash

“Space NK’s new hand and body collection is brilliant, affordable and well considered with beautiful fragrances. One of my favourite products is this hand wash as it has gritty, exfoliating beads inside – a real treat for dry skin. I love the scent as well – it’s coconut-y and transports you to sunnier climes.”
