The ultra-luxe face cream U Beauty The Super Smart Hydrator

Just to be clear from the start, I love this cream. Yes, it is ‘super-smart’, as its delivery system takes the five types of hyaluronic acid to exactly where your dehydrated skin needs it, plus it has the requisite antioxidants, shea butter and argan oil. But what really sets this apart is the incredible texture; it is silky and luxurious, and it’s one of the very few products that’s made a real difference to my chronically dry skin. Newby Hands

The multi-talented mascara Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes!

Having seen first-hand how Charlotte sculpts, shapes and elongates the eyes, her latest – and best – mascara now brings some of that magic to our own makeup routine. It’s a real multitasker: first, use the flat side of wand to push up, curl and color lashes from the roots up, then twist round to the bristle side to coat and separate each lash. It leaves them beautifully thick and velvety, and a deep, dark, true shade of black. NH

The transformational hair perfector Olaplex No. 3

Unlike most conditioners and masks, which just smooth, moisturize and hydrate hair, this genius product rebuilds and repairs broken strands caused by chemical and thermal damage. In fact, most colorists now integrate it into their in-salon coloring protocol. Used like a mask, apply it post-shampoo and leave on for at least 10 minutes; ideally, longer. Once blown-out, you’ll see the difference from just one treatment – used weekly, it’s completely transformative on dry, brittle or bleach-puffy hair. NH

The skin-calming hero La Mer The Concentrate

I call this the ‘911 serum’, because whatever the problem or skin type, this velvety gel seems to rectify it with minimum fuss. Of course, it has the famous La Mer fermented brew (aka the Miracle Broth), but it’s now reformulated to also give extra environmental protection along with its repairing and healing effects. So, whether your skin is sun or wind burnt, reactive, post-procedure, sore, angry, bumpy, flaky or feeling drier than the desert, this is the skin savior for you. NH

The ultimate eye illuminator Cosmedix Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum

Wearing a mask has made me more aware of how my eyes look, and I may go slightly heavier with mascara than I normally would. It has also made me re-think the kind of products I’m using on the skin around my eyes, because I’m just that bit more aware of dark circles. This eye serum has become a real life-saver; it does all the things you would expect from an eye product – such as hydrate, protect and target fine lines ­– but its real magic lies in the liquid crystals that instantly make the under-eye area brighter and more reflective, but without the shimmer.

The hydrating super duo Elaluz Beauty Oil & Elaluz All Day Beauty Water

Beauty influencer and entrepreneur Camila Coelho looks to her birth country of Brazil for the ingredients that make up her new skincare range, Elaluz. You can expect to find guarana, papaya, buriti and cupuaçu oils in her formulations, and what all these ingredients have in common is moisture. Lightly pressing a few drops of Beauty Oil onto skin after applying a serum, and following up with a mist of All Day Beauty Water, delivers the most beautifully hydrated, dewy-looking and supple-feeling skin, without clogging pores.

The overnight complexion refresh Summer Fridays Soft Reset AHA Exfoliating Solution

I love daily peels for smoothing the surface of my skin and minimizing pores, and I can even attest to their ability to lift unwanted pigmentation (to a degree – at a certain point, only an in-clinic treatment will do). This lotion is brilliant because it does the job without causing dehydration or leaving that uncomfortable tightness you get with some exfoliators. It does this by balancing out the exfoliating lactic and glycolic acids with aloe and hyaluronic acid. This means you can use it every night and reap the exfoliating benefits with none of the sensitivity. SS
