Dare To Go Flame-Haired …
Celebrities are all doing it … Kim Kardashian is the latest to go red, and surprisingly, she really suits it. Red hair actually suits most skin tones, it's warming and instantly brightening for the skin.
This shampoo and conditioner from John Frieda, £4.99 each (Boots and Superdrug) won't dye hair, but they will bring out the vibrant tones in red hair. And when it's usually blondes or brunettes who get the haircare specially for their shades, it's good to see redheads getting some TLC, ...
The £9.50 French Beauty Secret!
This little bargain beauty has sold out five times over on the internet since it launched in the UK last month - but you'd be forgiven for never having heard of it.
Collosol Eau de Lait, £9.50 (thefrenchpharmacy.co.uk) is a cleanser that was created in France in the 1950s, and has remained a French best-seller for more than 60 years. It's only now that we're getting a chance to try it in the UK - and it's just lovely.

Delicious New Cleansers
Dr Organic is a really well-priced range with great new launches coming out regularly. Keep an eye out on the brand as there's always something lovely popping up.
We love this bargain Manuka Honey Micellar Water, £5.99 (Holland & Barrett), created for sensitive skin to remove make-up, dirt and grime without tightening or drying skin. It also comes in an Aloe Vera version to soothe and calm skin.
Save On Self-Tan
We use our Leighton Denny Sun Believable Gradual Tan every day - all year round, and it just gives enough of a glow to take the bluey tinge off skin!
If you fancy trying the brand - and it is brilliant - this Discover Me Collection is a great way to test it at a bargain price.

Bargain Secret To Cara’s Skin
Supermodel Cara Delevingne has amazing skin, especially considering the amount of make-up she often has to wear.
She's revealed that a couple of drops of Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil, £19.50 (marksandspencer.com) is the secret behind her glow. 'I like to add a few drops after cleansing in the evening and before my moisturiser in the morning,' she says. Perfect, say us, as this little bottle will last for months, and it's just a delight to wear.
Cheaper Than … Salon Facials
We're big believers in deep cleansing - prevention is better than cure when it comes to blemishes, blotches or dry skin.
So this fab gadget from Sensse keeps all the nasty stuff at bay and saves a fortune on trying to rescue skin.
The Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush, £39.99 (very.co.uk) gets deep into the layers of skin, clearing away make-up, grime and debris that causes blackheads, uneven skintone and blemishes. It's easy to use, gentle on skin, and will make a massive difference to ...
Fight The Frizz
Anyone got frizzy, unruly hair? Thought so - prevention is definitely better than cure for frizz. So a preparation like this brilliant bargain Leo Bancroft Anti-Frizz Humidity Shield - just £3 at Tesco - can make a big difference.
It's a lightweight spray that protects hair and keeps it sleek without adding weight. Spray before leaving the house and keep that frizz at bay.
Go For The Full-On Ice Queen …
Winter can be just lovely, with all the cosy nights in and lots of layers. And it's better to embrace the cold weather - with a gorgeous nail polish like this bargain Barry M Ice Queen Molten Metal Nail Paint, £3.99 (Superdrug), one of a new collection of shades.
It has a mirror-like foil finish, goes on like a dream and looks perfect with pale, winter skin.
The Chopstick Styler
We love this fab hair wand - called The Chopstick Styler, from £24.99 (Argos), it comes in four different sizes and styles for different needs. And it's a lot cheaper than other versions.
Choose from The Hero, for tight curls, The Long, for longer hair, The Chunky for bouncy curls, and The Master for zig-zag waves. They're all priced under £29.99, and are really easy to use - and perhaps cheap enough to treat yourself to a couple …!
Cheat A Spring Glow!
It's almost difficult to imagine having a healthy, glowing skin in this weather - but it is possible with a little help.
For just £3.50 (wilko.com), essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer will bring a flush to cheeks with a cocktail of vitamins and cranberry water. It's a brilliant cheap alternative to the more expensive brands, use it under make-up or on its own for a perfect glow.
New Mascara For A Bargain Price
We love a new mascara, it's like buying a lovely new dress but without having to worry whether it fits.
And this new piece of loveliness from No7 is well worth the £10 it's currently on sale at. The Full 360 Mascara will be full price, at £14 (Boots) by February 13, so it's a chance to grab a bargain.
The idea is that the mascara grabs every tiny lash and coats it, lengthening and volumizing lashes. The brush certainly gets into all the corners, and gives a nice, fluttery result!
