As it’s now the beginning of summer term we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite beauty buys. These all work – trust us.
Clarins hand and nail treatment cream – we got given this as a Christmas present and forgot how smooth it made our hands and how strong it made our nails.
Aveda’s clove colour conditioner – if you fancy going darker but don’t want the commitment, or just want to cover your roots to tide you over till H Day (highlight day), this does the job. For a deep rich colour leave on your hair for at least 30 minutes.
Johnson and Johnson’s Holiday skin – still the best gradual fake tan for the price and it smells good.
Ambre Solaire sun cream – this stuff is pricey but it smells great, is not too sticky and best of all we’ve not had any red-faces (or bodies) from using it.
Dermalogica skin smoothing (day) intensive moisture moisture (night) - we’ve used the skin smoothing cream since we were 22. Some two decades later our relatively line- and botox-free faces are testament to that fact that nothing beats a good basic moisturiser.
Boots salon smooth nail files - these are basic nail files which are cheap enough not to worry about replacing.
Marks and Spencer cotton-rich full briefs – the most comfortable and attractive granny knickers around, and just £5 a pack (M&S factory outlets)
Now we’ve shared ours, let us know your must-have beauty buys…
