  • 1.The Hair Mask

    The Hair Mask
    4.67 Stars 83 Reviews
    This hair mask is loved by experts all over the world thanks to its super regenerating properties. Infused with a rare and precious elixir of Prickly Pear Seed Oil, the mask helps to restore damaged fibres and nourish the hair from the root to the tip. By stimulating the scalp, the hair grows stronger from the follicle and becomes shinier, healthier and more pliable.  
  • 2.The Body Scrub

    The Body Scrub
    4.33 Stars 12 Reviews
    This beautifully textured salt scrub is the perfect way to buff your body and give yourself a luxurious skincare treatment. Made with an infusion of Tahitian Monoi Oil and Frangipani Flowers, the scrub is extremely nourishing and soothing on the skin, despite the fact its removing all dead cells and dirt. Simply apply onto dry or wet skin and buff in for smooth and soft results.
  • 3.The Body Wash

    The Body Wash
    4.6 Stars 5 Reviews
    Korres shower gels are loved by everyone, thanks to their super reasonable price point, and their amazing scent and ingredient list. The Bergamot Pear scent smells absolutely delightful thanks to its woody yet fruity fragrance, and is the perfect way to brighten any winter morning. Enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamins B2 and B5, the body wash keeps skin super soft, smooth, nourished, protected and healthy. Perfect for the colder months.
  • 4.The Eye Cream

    The Eye Cream
    4.47 Stars 66 Reviews
    An eye cream is an essential item in any beauty routine, yet is often the step that is missed out. The Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream is infused with Kiwi, which is rich in Vitamin C. This makes it great for brightening the skin, and banishing dark circles, while Carrot Seed Oil, Avocado Oil and Aloe Gel helps to restore delicate and damaged tissue, and leave you bright eyed. Simply apply morning and at night for beautiful and long-lasting hydration.
  • 5.The No-Tan Self Tan

    The No-Tan Self Tan
    4.4 Stars 25 Reviews
    For a Christmas party, and for last-minute special events, you don't always have the time to do a full-body tan. This is where Vita Liberata's Body Blur comes into play. The incredible light gloss lotion is also known as a "Skin Finisher", which means that it can be used either over fake tan, or on its own for a lightly bronzed glow. Using a tanning mitt, apply all over the limbs which you want to catch the light.
  • 6.The Exfoliant

    The Exfoliant
    4.71 Stars 167 Reviews
    This powder exfoliant is a cult product in celebrity and experts routines thanks to its very unique formulation. Made up of Rice Powder Enzymes, which are super gentle yet effective at buffing away dead skin cells, the powder needs to be mixed with water to form a soft and foam-like paste. This then can be massaged into the skin for a smooth and refined finish. We love to use the Daily Microfoliant in the mornings as it helps to energise and refresh our complexion.
  • 7.The Night Treatment

    The Night Treatment
    4.76 Stars 237 Reviews
    The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair is the only night treatment you need. Literally. The amazing formula (loved by none other than renowned Beauty Editor, Alessandra Steinherr), contains exclusive and patented technology, called ChronoluxCB, which helps to regulate the skin's own natural renewal process overnight. Rich in Hyaluronic Acid, the treatment replenishes lost moisture and keeps the skin hydrated, plumped-up and gorgeous.
  • 8.The Foundation

    The Foundation
    4.1 Stars 10 Reviews
    MAC's Face and Body Foundation is one of the most classic face bases you can use, and one that should always be on hand in your makeup bag. With an incredible 8 hours wear, the foundation can be used anywhere on the body where you want to cover imperfections, pigmentation and blemishes. It's also non-acnegenic, which means it won't clog pores, while it's water-based formulation glides over the skin for a beautiful finish.
  • 9.The Moisturiser

    The Moisturiser
    5 Stars 1 Reviews
    Clinique's Dramatically Different line with its banana-hued lotions made waves when it launched, and this stunning little pot is no different. A richer texture than the lotion, yet still non-greasy and lightweight, the cream melts into the skin to provide essential hydration and moisture for dry and dehydrated skin types. This is both a perfect day and overnight treatment to help restore delicate complexions.
  • 10.The Cleanser

    The Cleanser
    4.26 Stars 34 Reviews
    This may only have been a recent launch this year, but the Pixi Double Cleanse has fast become a cult favourite. Created in collaboration with skin guru Caroline Hirons, the dual pot contains a rich cleansing balm to melt away makeup, dirt, oil and impurities, and a gentle cleansing cream to nourish and soothe delicate areas. We love to take this away with us on our travels, as it's housed in one handy pot for ease.
