1. Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Hair Food - Banana and Shea

This mask will work wonders for dry hair and it smells absolutely incredible. Think relaxing in a tropical paradise and you’re on the right track. The banana extract is from Costa Rica and is rich in natural oils, vitamins and of course, potassium. This, combined with the wonders of shea butter, is what your hair needs to get summer ready – plus it’s vegan friendly. We love.

2. L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Radiant Eye Cream

If stubborn dark circles and something you’ve tried in vain to get rid of for a while now, then this new eye cream might just do the trick. Our favourite part is the radiant, tinted formula - a lovely peach shade with a hint of shimmer to brighten the under eye – which will counteract any purple tones you’re hoping to hide. Blurring technology and peony extract means you’ll be able to wave bye, bye to fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Alex Steinherr Skincare Rage

This collection, which is available in Penneys, will make dull and tired skin a thing of the past. Our favourites are the Plump and Glow, Power Mask and the Sleep Spa, Overnight Lip Mask. The Power Mask is ideal for an added dose of hydration and contains amino acid, hyaluronic acid and Korean camellia leaving your skin looking plump and gorgeous. With the Overnight Lip Mask (which is technically for night-time but we’ve been using it throughout the day too) you’ll notice a big improvement in the overall condition of your lips within 24 hours. It has a gel-like consistency with a pink hue, making it the perfect replacement for your usual lippy.

 4. L’Occitane en Provence Mineral Moisture Mask

Who doesn’t love a product you can pop on your face before bed so it can work its magic while you sleep? We sure do. With water from the Réotier Spring, the minerals contained in this are rich in calcium, which is essential for healthy skin. A powerful trio of hyaluronic acid, gylcerin and not forgetting the calcium-rich Réotier water, a generous amount on your skin at night will see you waking up to softer and more hydrated skin.
