Champagne & Smoke Filthy Rose Scented Candle

What do you get when you combine a beauty expert and the owner of a vintage interiors brand? A seriously chic homeware line. Launching today, Champagne & Smoke is the brainchild of Lisa Potter-Dixon and Lia Briamonte – and their first product is a candle inspired by the headiness of the 70s disco scene. Housed in a leopard-print glass jar you’ll want to keep, the scent has notes of damson rose, tobacco, saffron, amyris and black pepper. Containing 15% fragranced oil – the maximum candles can have – you can be sure this one will linger for hours.

Sculpting Facial Roller, £95 | 111Skin

With rotating rollers, this clever tool promotes lymphatic drainage to lift and sculpt your face – plus, it improves glow by encouraging blood circulation. Use it after you’ve applied your skincare, concentrating a little more pressure to the fuller areas of the face, like your cheeks and forehead. Using it each day will help get rid of congestion and depuff – plus, it feels so good.

Chronos Hair Straightener, £289 | ghd

Haircare brand ghd is expanding its cult line with the Chronos hair straightener. Building on the brand’s years of expertise, it retains all the functions and innovations of its Platinum+ but makes the most of new technology to speed up styling with minimum damage. Smooth and easy to use, the plates continually monitor your hair as it passes through, ensuring you get even heat distribution, so you never have to go over the same section twice. Whether you use them to straighten or add waves to your hair, you won’t be disappointed.

M101 Lightform Dual Ended Complexion Brush, £16 | Morphe

This affordable, double-ended brush helps you reach all areas of your face with ease. It also has soft bristles that are densely packed, so it never causes irritation but still works the product – no matter the texture – into the skin.

Wellness brand AWvi is led by science and all four of its products are made in Italy. The Gentle Cleanser, The Power Serum, The Active Cream and The Skin Biotic are all you need to create a solid skincare routine. Driven by probiotics and vitamins, the formulas aim to preserve and nourish your skin’s microbiome to slow down the ageing process. Each product is based on scientific solutions with a holistic, inside-out approach that promises to keep your skin’s overall health and vitality boosted. Ideal if you’re looking to streamline your routine or you want to take things back-to-basics.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, £8.80 | The Ordinary

If you loved The Ordinary’s original HA serum, you’ll want to try this one. Recreated with a lighter texture and the addition of skin-plumping ceramides, the improved formula helps protect and repair your skin’s natural barrier. Plus, it combats moisture loss, so dryness and irritation is kept at bay. It absorbs nicely and gives skin an immediate boost of luminosity – which is all thanks to the hydrating ingredients. Unlike its predecessor, it’s not at all tacky and will layer nicely with other products in your routine.

The Dark Spot Correcting Serum, £58 | Nuxe

Dubbed the ‘ultimate skin brightener’, this serum by Nuxe is full of vitamin C to help minimise the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots. Its high antioxidant content boosts skin’s elasticity too, helping to improve tone and keep it firm. Added hyaluronic acid and alfalfa extracts keep hydration levels topped up to further bolster radiance and break up any stubborn dark spots. The results speak for themselves: 86% of testers agreed their skin tone looked more even after just two weeks of use.

ZARA Hair X Guido

Zara has teamed up with iconic hair stylist Guido Palau to create a selection of everyday basics. From a dry texturising spray to a volumising mousse, hair balm, curl activator and, of course, a hairspray, the line-up promises to help you create salon-worthy results at home. The products start from just £15, and all the scents were created with French perfumer Jérôme Epinette.

Available at from 4th March 2024.

Powermatte High-Intensity Lip Pencil, £20.40 | NARS

NARS is known for its incredible lip crayons, and its new ‘Powermatte’ range is just as impressive. Designed to last for hours, the formulas are budge-proof with a ‘power pigment complex’ that latches onto lips to ensure the colour stays put. As for the pencils, they’re easy to scribble on, while the silky textures make shaping and defining your lips a breeze. We love ‘Cruella’ for night-time and ‘American Woman’ for the day.

Eye Quad Eyeshadow Palette, £48 | Burberry

Burberry Beauty is making a comeback and so far, it doesn’t disappoint. These Eye Quads are housed in luxe packaging and the ‘Blush Beige’ palette is our go-to right now. With dusty rose and taupe tones that can be layered and built up to softly define the eyes, the powder textures are buttery-smooth and never crease on the lids.

Kitten Lash Mascara, £29 | Lisa Eldridge

Lisa Eldridge has done it again. The Kitten Lash Mascara promises fluttery definition, while the curved brush hugs every lash for perfect root-to-tip definition. We love to use the slightly pointed tip to edge out the lashes at the corner for that elongated, feline effect.

Queen Screen SPF 50 Super Glow Drops, £33 | Ultra Violette

Ultra Violette’s clever SPF line is game-changing and we can’t get enough of its Super Glow Illuminating Drops. Pipette a few drops into your regular SPF for an extra dose of glow and coverage – it also works well blended into your foundation to create healthy, fresh-looking skin that’s protected from any UV damage. One of the best beauty hybrids we’ve tried in a long time.

Glass Highlighter, £38 | Rodial

With the same chunky applicator and creamy formula as Rodial’s Banana Lowlighter, this highlighter helps to smooth and brighten skin. It’s unfussy, and lends a healthy sheen wherever you apply it – we recommend tapping it onto the highest points of your face so that it catches the light. You can use it as a soft wash across your eyelids, too.

Available at

Perfect Night's Sleep Wellbeing Soak, £45 | Neom

Just a single inhalation of this immediately provides headspace and clarity, thanks to notes of lavender, chamomile and patchouli. It’s a soothing blend that transforms any tub into a calming oasis – though if you only have a shower, you can also rub this into your skin to benefit from skin-loving vitamins A, B and E. Perfect to use before bed, it relieves tight joints and calms a busy brain.

Aqua Universalis Linen Mist, £115 | Maison Francis Kurkdjian

We admit, this is a treat. Created to mimic the scent of freshly washed laundry, it’s essentially a room spray, but it’s potent enough to be used on the skin and your clothes. It’s fresh with a cotton-like crispness that’s hard to beat – especially if you prefer scents on the muskier, cosier side. Whatever you use it for, you can guarantee it will keep your space feeling fresh and clean.
