I love 10-Day Tamer Pre-Shower Treatment by John Frieda (£12.99, Boots) – this could revolutionise the battle against frizzy hair. It’s a one-application treatment, yet keeps hair smooth for up to ten days or five washes. Simply apply to dry hair, leave for ten minutes, then wash as normal. It left my hair so much more manageable and brought out the natural curl, without frizz. I didn’t need to straighten my hair, so it looked thicker.
This fun new make-up bag is just what we need to brighten up a dreary January. It is the latest product in YouTube sensation Zoella’s beauty line, which is guaranteed to be a hit with fans of all ages. The ‘These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things’ bag is a steal at £8 (feelunique.com and Superdrug).
For a fresh-faced flush, apply a couple of drops of liquid blusher just under cheekbones and blend to avoid streaking. My current favourite is the new YSL Fusion Ink Blush (pictured, £35, yslbeauty.co.uk). For a budget option, try Bourjois Aqua Blush 12hr (£8.99, Boots).
TREATS TO MAKE YOUR MONDAY MARVELLOUS
Put a spring in your step during the winter months by creating your own home spa. I love Champneys products – everything feels luxurious. The Detox range uses seaweed and mineral sea salt to cleanse, tone and repair skin. My favourites include the Detox Hip and Thigh Firming Mud (£12, Boots), which improves cellulite, and Detox In A Box (£30, Boots), which features four products, including an in-shower scrub and a firming body butter.
Our nails need extra attention at this time of the year, so it pays to use a special treatment product now to help prepare them for spring. Leave them polish-free for two weeks and apply Orly Cutique (£10, graftonsbeauty.co.uk) every day to see a difference.
It helps to remove stains, soften cuticles and also leaves nails looking whiter, giving a healthier overall appearance.
