Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

Use to hydrate skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines and repair environmental damage. With so many competitors on the shelves, this multi award winner is still the best. £41, www.houseoffraser.co.uk

Kiehls Lip Balm #1
A serious addiction to lipbal means I have tried and tested a mammoth amount of varieties. They don’t call this #1 for nothing, this is one of the best lip-smoothing saviors around. The light textured balm sinks into lips to smooth, sooth and repair sun damage on beaches and ski slopes alike. With added SPF this is the only lip protection you need all year round. £9.50, www.kiehls.co.uk

The regenerating and restructuring formula contains skin regenerating Ursolic Acid and cell repairing Retinol – which is a pure form of Vitamin A. This formula is a potent miracle worker when it comes to repairing and enhancing the skin collagen and protein production, to reduce fine lines, plump the complexion and give renewed vitality. £243, www.uk.spacenk.com

Bare Minerals The Foundation
The original mineral make-up brand still comes top when it comes to creating a flawless, non-clogging skin base.

We love Molton Brown for their amazingly uplifting scents and bold, bright coloured collections – all infused with fruit and plant essence and essential oils, we think everyone should have a duo of hand wash and lotion perched on their sink. Pick from a vast selection including the latest edition Rok Mint to the aromatic Amber Cocoon and the floral Rosé Granati – the only problem is which one to choose. £32 (per duo), www.beautyexpert.co.uk
