Body Shop's Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, £12

'I'm crazy about cleansing balms and the Body Shop has come up trumps with the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter that's not only purse-friendly but as good as the high-end competitors. It melts off the make-up effortlessly and the camomile soothes the skin too.'

Sheenie from [a target="_blank" href="">Just Nice Things[/a]

'I am a big fan of Clinique skin care, and their new and improved formula for their Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is as brilliant as you'd imagine. It has the same lightweight consistency which absorbs super fast, but it now has extra hydration to last even longer on the skin and strengthen the skin's moisture barrier.'

Guerlain Terra Nerolia Tan Enhancing Bronzer, £37.40

This has got to be the Grazia beauty teams’ fave bronzer of the summer! Not only does this pretty palette contain a neutral bronzer and a coral blush for contouring and highlighting but the powder is also scented with the gorgeous Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca fragrance. There’s also a delicate shimmery golden overlay for when you want to add a little more holiday glow and glamour to your make-up routine. But listen up ladies this is a limited edition product and stocks won’t last much longer so you better be quick a bag yourself this beautiful bronzer before it’s gone forever!

And Other Stories Body Mist Couture Carnival, £12.00

If there was one beauty item to take in your bag to the Notting Hill Carnival it’s the new body mist from & Other Stories that smells fabulously festive and is the perfect scented spritz to keep you revitalised and dancing all weekend long. Inspired by ‘Rainbow fruit cocktails and dancing til dawn’ this little wonder product has managed to combine both the refreshing and cooling aspects of a body mist with the fine fragrance of a perfume to produce the perfect accompaniment to this weekend’s carnival celebrations!

Ila’s Little Face Treats, £60.00

If you’re looking to party hard this bank holiday weekend your skin is definitely going to be in need of a pick me up afterwards, so why not get your hands on Ila’s bag of little face treats and indulge in some face time. This cute little cosmetic bag holds face oils, cleansings milks and even toners to help stimulate cell regeneration and leave facial skin brighter and glowing with radiance. There’s no doubt about it, these little treat bags are a must have for detoxifying and keeping skin naturally nourished!

Éminence Strawberry Rhubarb Masque, £37.00

With the return of our beloved Great British Bake Off this week the Grazia beauty office are going nuts for all things sweet and scrummy! In particular it’s the Strawberry Rhubarb Masque from Éminence that has really got our taste buds tingling and frankly it smells so good we’re not sure if we want to use it or eat it! Hunger aside, this gorgeous masque is totally organic and jam packed with rich shea butter and exfoliating salicylic acid which leaves your skin feeling plumped, youthful and deliciously smooth. Simply mix a small amount with a few drops of water, apply and then remove with a lukewarm cloth and your skin will be sparkling with radiance before you can say ready, steady, bake!

If you’re looking for a slightly more natural lip this weekend then the new range of Nude lip crayons from Hourglass are most definitely for you. With a range of 6 classic and chic shades these soft and creamy crayons promise to suit all skin tones and complement any wardrobe. With a strong dose of Vitamin E this lippy also helps to nourish, protect and moisturize lips. So, if you’re not feeling the bold bouche this week don’t go naked, go nude.

Us Grazia girls have got the perfect little lippy to jazz up your make-up and inspire a bit of glam this bank holiday weekend.
