Synergie Skin Vitamin B serum

I can't stop, won't stop raving about this serum. In fact, I wrote a full review on why it's so good. It's cleared up my rough skin and left me feeling dewy and balanced more so than any other product I've tried. The key ingredient, as the name would suggest, is vitamin B or niacinamide as it’s also known.


Laniege Water Sleeping Mask

This lightweight gel-cream is perfect if your skin can’t handle most heavy night creams. And it’s like giving your skin a big drink of water. According to the brand, the overnight mask uses a technology called SLEEP-TOX™ which helps to purify and keep your skin in its best working condition. You wake up feeling very hydrated and plumped after using it.


innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule

As someone who always goes to bed too late, I’m consistently looking for anything that can help me look less tired. This black-tea-infused serum is silky, weightless and helps you wake up hydrated and bright. My complexion always feels a lot more bouncy after using it.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Spring launches: Iced Out Highlighter, Crystal Lipgloss and Brow Freeze

The latest products from ABH are all worthy of a spot in this list. This brand puts so much care and dedication into its products, it’s unsurprising that they're all winners. The Iced Out highlighter is one that I love because it gives you a glow without emphasising any rough texture or fine lines. The lipgloss gives you the most perfect, glassy lips without that hyper-stickiness and the brow freeze offers that fabulous laminated brow look.


Aesop Petitgrain Reviving Body Gel

The perfect salve for sunkissed skin. This non-sticky gel cools and soothes with aloe vera, petitgrain, grapefruit and lemon. It’s a sensory delight.


Amy Jean Daily Brow Mask

Brow hair needs nourishment and hydration too. Amy Jean’s latest creation is a product that does just that, a clear mask you can apply easily with a spoolie. It’s designed to help your brow hairs stay in top condition, perfect if you’re someone that tints and laminates frequently.


Fenty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Powder Foundation

The latest launch from Fenty is a totally lightweight powder foundation. It’s great to apply on the go or for touch ups during the day because it’s not cakey. It’s also a great one to apply over the top of your liquid in the areas where you need a light dusting of more coverage.


Bondi Sands Pure Self Tan Foaming Water

Bondi Sands’ latest creation is a new tanning range made with mostly natural ingredients and using ethically sourced packaging that’s 100% recyclable. The Foaming Tan Water is super easy to apply, even for first-timers. And you won’t need to wash it off either so you can apply and run out the door. Your colour will develop slowly over six to eight hours.


Biology No. 303 Body Wash

This product makes the list because the smell is intoxicating - it’s like a fancy day spa. They say smell is the most powerful trigger for memory; and this body wash will transport you straight to a massage treatment somewhere exotic.


Ciate Watermelon Burst Lip Oil

This cute, little tube has been living inside my handbag since I received it. It smells like summer and has the added benefit of being nourishing and kind to chapped lips. I like using it over the top of a matte lipstick for a hydration boost or wearing it solo on the way to the beach.
