One Oil That Does It All

We're all for cutting down on the number of products that it takes to get you through an ordinary day. Yes, absolutely have some treats for weekends or getting ready to go out, but on a daily basis most of us are in too much of a hurry to use much of what we buy. Take this new Cocoa Butter Wonder Oil from Dr Organic, £11.99 (Holland & Barrett). It smells of chocolate - so that's the sugar craving box ticked - and can be used on the face, body and hair. And you only need a tiny amount to ...

Keep Festive Skin Clear and Bright …

Skin can become dull, grey and tired-looking at this time of year, with too much food and drink and not enough sleep and fresh air. Our advice is to keep skin as clean and moisturised as possible. And you can get a healthy glow for a bargain price with this new Tea Tree & Aloe Vera collection from Tisserand. There are six products in the range, all under £7, so you can buy a couple to try. We love this All Over Skin Wash, £6.80 (tisserand.com) which can be used on the face and body ...

Get A Rosy Golden Glow …

We need all the help we can get at this time of year when it comes to a healthy glow. Skin doesn't naturally glisten and glow in the depths of winter, so anything that helps make us look more radiant is definitely welcome. However, sometimes golden can mean more orange than sunkissed, so if you have fair skin, take care with instant glow products. We've found this perfect bargain skin enhancer from Cocoa Brown. Rose Gold Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil, £8.95 (cloud10beauty.com) has pinky ...

The Ultimate Skin-Smoother

At least 40 per cent of us suffer from Keratosis Pilaris, a dry skin condition that makes the skin on arms, legs, buttocks and the face lumpy and bumpy and very difficult to smoothe. Palmer's has come up with a brilliant solution. Smoothing Lotion, £4.49 (Boots) should make a big difference in four to six weeks of use, smoothing, nourishing and hydrating skin. Cold weather often makes the condition worse, but by using this bargain treatment, skin will look and feel much better. And, like ...

Magical Hand Gel

Who doesn't love sparkles and unicorns? We certainly do. And this new Unicorn Hand Gel by Merci Handy, £2.90 (merci-handy.co.uk) is sure to bring a smile to your face. Made with unicorn tears of laughter (!) and with a label made from real stardust, this appeals to the little girl in all of us. And it's actually useful - small enough to fit into a handbag or a pocket, it'll help keep winter germs at bay, while looking fab when you pull it out to use in public.

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee …

Coffee scrubs are a big buzz in beauty right now, with the grains replacing harmful microbeads as the best way to scrub away dead skin cells. But, like anything that's new and novel, coffee scrubs can be expensive - which is why we're loving this Optiat Mouthwatering Mandarin Feel Great Coffee Scrub, a bargain £6.99 (optiat.co.uk). In a squeezy tube for easy access - rather than scooping mounds out a of jar in the shower than then gets filled with water - it uses Arabica coffee beans as ...

Bring On The Bling!

Okay, it might not be the daytime look you're used to, but doesn't this blingy freckle look bring a smile to your face?! There's nothing wrong with a little sparkle from time to time, and this is the way to do it. Lottie London Festival Gems, £3.99 per packet (Superdrug) come in all sorts of different designs and styles, and they can be used to create a sparkle tattoo, a little glittery face art or even a sparkly hair parting. Go on, treat yourself!

Soothe Post-Summer Skin

What we need now we're edging into autumn is lots of comfort skincare, a bit like comfort eating, but a lot better for you. Products that hydrate, brighten and soften skin are most welcome after a summer of exposing parts of ourselves that won't see the light of day again for months. We love this Odylique Aloe Vera Body Wash, £9 (odylique.co.uk), a soothing combination of aloe vera juice, extra virgin olive oil and calendula that works to ease skin irritations and get deep into skin to ...

Gorgeous Body Goodies

We love Mandara Spa, it's a well-priced brand, great quality, and it doesn't rest on its laurels, with lovely new products launched frequently. The new Exotic Escapes collection is divine - it smells of faraway places, and works a treat at creating a bargain relaxing spa in your own bathroom. Our favourite product from the new range is Body Polish with Coconut Shell and Coconut Oil, £6 (Sainsbury's). It gently smoothes skin, leaving a perfect canvas for self-tan, instantly leaving skin more ...

Oil For Everything …

As you probably guessed, we love beauty oils. They work wonders on skin, hair and the body, correcting the dehydration that our poor outsides suffer, day in, day out. Converting to oils doesn't have to be an expensive business - all you need is one good value, good quality oil, and you can use it for all your body's needs. Take this Weleda Almond Oil, £16.95 (weleda.co.uk). It's rich and packed full of goodness, so it will work on the face - either by applying it neat, and it's just two ...

For Skin As Soft As A Baby’s …

There are so many fabulous bodycare products around that sometimes we miss the obvious. Johnson's Baby range is great value, amazing quality and works wonders to keep skin youthful, supple and soft. You may be surprised if you check out the huge range at Boots, there's something for every skincare need, and most is under £3. We love this Aloe Vera Baby Oil, £2.09 (Boots), which is perfect for taking on holiday to soothe and hydrate skin that's been in the sun. Apply straight after a ...

Luxury Body Scrub … Under £5

There are few things better than a good scrub at dead, dry skin, revealing brand new bright, luminous, healthy skin underneath. Self-tans and the build up of suncream can make skin appear dull, and of course, you need skin to be smooth and free of dry patches when applying tan. There's no point in being half-hearted about these things, so this fabulous big tub of Vitamin E Sugar and Oil Body Scrub from Superdrug (£4.99) is perfect. You can scoop out handfuls and give yourself a scrub ...
