Get A Perfect Glow!
It's definitely self-tan time, and the choice is vast - which can make it all a bit confusing.
Just to help you out, we love this Body Glow by Skinny Tan, £7.99 (Superdrug) which gives a great colour, is really easy to apply and has the added bonus of containing guarana which helps to firm skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Choose a pale colour for skin that hasn't seen the sun for months as the colour is quite intense.
The Perfect Skin Hydrator
We love mists and we love serums, and now Barry M have combined the two - which is a fab idea.
Choose from Calming Rose or Hydrating Coconut Serum Mists, £5.99 (superdrug.com), both of which give skin an instant boost of moisture, keeping skin hydrated throughout the day.
They're best used in the mornings before moisturising and can be used throughout the day to keep skin looking dewy and feeling supple.
Save More Than £60 On Skincare
We love premium skincare, but of course, we can't always afford it, which is why we love a good bargain. So we thought we'd share this one with you ...
This gorgeous Omorovicza Christmas Intro Set is worth £112 and is now reduced from £65 to £45.50, so it's a cracking bargain. It contains five premium products that are just luxurious to use, and it's a taste of delicious luxury.

They're good-sized products and smell and feel amazing, so if you're planning on buying skincare, get your timing right and buy it now at Debenhams.
Bright Skin … For £3!
Revolution is a great bargain range anyway, but this week at Superdrug some of the star products have been halved in price, making it almost rude not to treat yourself.
Take this Liquid Highlighter in Champagne - reduced from £6 to £3. It's perfect for brightening the complexion instantly, adding a little lift to brows, accentuating the cupid's bow or simply mixing with foundation to give the whole face a healthy glow. We're never without a liquid highlighter as they have so many uses, and ...
Lipsticks To Suit All …?
Maybelline have put a lot of thought and effort into the new Made For All lipstick range. The six shades of red were tested on more than 50 different skintones in the quest to find shades to suit everyone.
At £7.99 (Boots), they're well worth checking out, as the shades were tested on real people, with real lives, so they're very wearable.
Give Skin A Treat
Skin takes a bit of a bashing at this time of year, with the harsh weather and all the celebrations. Take some time out today or over the weekend for some pampering - and this is perfect for being kind to skin.
We love Neutrogena, it's well-priced and great quality. This new bargain Deep Moisture Express Body Mist, £6.99 (Boots) is really easy to use and gives skin a big drink. It lasts for hours - promising 48 hours of hydration - and skin stays soft and supple.
If you're rushing around today, looking for last-minute presents, try Boots - there are some great gift sets and if you take some time, some fabulous bargains to be had.

Go For Glitter …
If there's ever an excuse to get the glitter out, it's over the next few days. So slap on the shimmer and slather on the sparkle with this gorgeous bargain Barry M Glitter Cream Palette, £7.99 (Superdrug).
The colours are very wearable - either on the eyes, décolletage or along the hairline - and the creamy formula means they stay put longer than glitter powders. They are subtle, but can be built on for extra sparkle. A top tip is to wet a fine eyeliner brush and sweep a slick of glitter ...
Gift Ideas For Teens
Teenage girls can be difficult to buy for, so when we stumbled across a fab range of bargain body mists at Superdrug, we bought them in bulk!
There's this one, Ari by Ariana Grande, Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna, Nude by Rihanna and Fantasy by Britney Spears. They're all £10, but are frequently on offer, so keep an eye out.
Brilliant stocking fillers, party gifts and actually great value. That's one ticked off our Xmas list!
The Perfect Mascara?
The search for the perfect mascara is a never-ending one. Just when we think we've found THE mascara that we'll remain loyal to for the rest of our lives, it goes a bit gloopy or another, better-looking one pops up.
So in the spirit of the quest for the mascara that will change everything, this £3 essence bargain looks pretty good. Apparently Ashley Roberts loves it for her Strictly appearances. And the name certainly makes it tempting. Lash Princess Mascara (wilko.com) has a cobra-shaped ...
Pretty Xmas Bauble
Every Christmas tree should have a beautiful bauble that's an extra present when everything's getting packed away.
Burt's Bees festive baubles are lovely. At £6.99 (Superdrug), they're a great bargain buy. Choose from Beeswax, Pomegranate or Coconut & Pear, with each decoration having a lipbalm, a hand salve or cuticle cream. And the baubles can be kept for next year with a new treat inside.
A Booster For Every Skincare Need …
Boosters are the way to go with skincare, as you can tailor products without having to buy a whole new range.

Choose from needs such as hydration for dry skin, resistance for protection against pollution, radiance booster for glowing skin, a collagen booster to firm skin and a Q10 booster to protect against ageing. These are affordable enough to build a ...
If you look hard enough there are some amazing Christmas bargains around. Boots has some great offers, such as this Clinique Limited Edition Must-Have Set, reduced from £70 to £35. Better still, the products add up to a value of £118, so it's a real saving of £83.
The set includes all full-sized products - Take The Day off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips, Moisture Surge 72-hour Auto Replenishing Hydrator, All About Eyes, High Impact Mascara in Black, Pop Lip Colour + Primer in ...
Be Kind To Skin
Your Good Skin is a brilliant range, really well-priced with great formulas that really work. Keep a lookout for this ProVitamin Overnight Cream, £6.99 (Boots) - it supports the skin's natural process as you sleep, there's no oily residue in the morning and it leaves skin feeling smooth to the touch.
The rest of the range is also impressive, and it's gentle enough not to upset sensitive skin.
