YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE SUPERBERRY HYDRATE AND GLOW OIL
Can I just start by saying WOW! Besides smelling so delicious that you’d be tempted to eat it (please don’t), Youth to the People’s Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil is the kind of thing that needs to be worked into your night time ritual. It’s a super hydrating, luxurious oil that feels so precious on your skin that you’ll want to slather it on all day (and night) long.

KAREN MURRELL LIPSTICK
We all have those days when our faces just look dull and lifeless, as if we’ve emerged from a season of hibernation. I will vouch for red lipstick on these days, and every other day, and the best shade going around at the moment is from Karen Murrell Coral Dawn. Vibrant, bright and guaranteed to boost your self esteem, it’s the take me everywhere kind of shade that instantly has you feeling good again.

NOUGHTY TO THE RESCUE INTENSE MOISTURE HAIR TREATMENT
This deeply hydrating mask rejuvenates and restores even the most thirstiest and over processed hair.

The best thing about it is that it is 97% natural and 100% vegan! Noughty To The Rescue Hair Mask | RRP $16.99 | Available at Priceline
CINCH FACE CHEAT(ER)
Any product that does more than one thing at once is something that needs to be seriously considered in my book. Enter, Cinch Face Cheat(er), the brilliant 4-in-1 wonder-cream that moisturises, illuminates, refines pores, and primes, all in one. What’s more is this beauty will last for 72 hours. A quick smear of this on your face will give you an instant glow, with added moisture, smoothness and that luminosity that we all crave.Cinch Face Cheat(er) | RRP $39.95 | Available at Priceline
OPI GREASE COLLECTION
OPI have forever been the leaders in nail polish and they’ve done it again with the release of their Grease collection. Celebrating the film’s iconic 40th anniversary, OPI have released some retro hues that look good on all skin tones – from powdery pastel shades of yellow, lavender, pink and peach to bright pops of orange, turquoise and magenta. Rich tones of teal, blue and black shimmer offer deeply saturated colour, while white and red give a nod to Rydell High’s school colors. The top pick would have to be ‘Frenchie Likes to Kiss’, which is the ultimate pink/purple pale shade with a glimmer of fluorescent shine. A swipe of this colour is guaranteed to pick you up again, and its long lasting shine will keep you going for weeks.
