Benefit They're Real Mascara £17.00 - A good mascara is a must have in every women's make-up bag. Nothing makes your eyes zing out and your eyelashes look like they belong to a newborn baby than a well chosen mascara. I love Benefit Mascara's and this one is a corker
Your hands show the sign of aging pretty quickly, more so they any other part of the body so a good hand cream should always be placed in your handbag. This one from L'Occitance £7.20 is super moisturizing and use regularly will make your hands look as fresh as a teenager. (almost)
Okay, the weather may be a lot cooler now but this facial spritz from the Organic Phamarcy £27.00 is a perfect little afternoon pick me up. Spritz on if your skin is feeling a little dehydrated *Hello, air con* this will help to reduce redness and calm your skin.
A colour that looks like the colour of your own lips but slightly darker and better, then look no further than this one from Clinque Chubby Stick in Curviest Caramel £17.50. If your lips are not your best feature, I feel it's better to enhance the colour you have naturally which will make them look slightly fuller rather than use dark or overly bright colours. I have a couple of these lying in different places around the house.
I love the Tangle Teezers although I don't have this colour yet £12.00. Perfect for reducing knots in your hair without damaging. You can use this both on wet and dry hair. I wouldn't be without mine. They are also easy to carry around in your handbag as well.
I know most of you guys reading this have regularly manicures but even if you are not one of them and don't have the time or money to spend getting your nails done regularly. This clear nail polish from Mavala £4.95 will help your nails to look more groomed with minimal fuss,
I adore the Liz Earle Cleanser £26.00 and I don't know anyone whose skin hasn't improved when using this. A definitely must have in your bathroom cabinet. This will cleanse your skin like nothing else will and leave your skin feeling really lovely and smooth not to mention as soft as a baby's bottom!
Let's face it, the humidity and cold air is not a match made in heaven when it comes to our hair so why not enhance those navy waves with this Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray £22.00. I love the straight sleek look but tongs can play havoc so making the most of your natural waves works better in the long run. Or at least alternate.
I have fond memories of working with this store many moons ago when Jo was at the realm as so too speak, I still love this Jo Malone Lime, Basil and Mandarin £43.00 and it truly is a classic. The size of this is perfect meaning it will fit into most small clutches if you are heading out for the evening. Men seem to love this spray as well. So I've been told.
