The Beauty Products To Buy This Weekend As Picked By Our Beauty Team And Bloggers
GALLERY>> THIS WEEKEND'S TOP BEAUTY BUYS
Phyto Subtil Elixir Intense Nutrition Shine, £24
With the winter months creeping upon us, we’re certainly feeling the chill and reaching for comforting yet nutritious food. All hail this clever lightweight oil which is literally food- but for your hair! This wonderful oil penetrates deep into each strand of hair, giving damaged, lifeless hair a new lease of life. It intensely replenishes shine and softness to the hair and is without parabens, sulfates or phthalates- what’s not to love?
Wood Wood Cashmere Scented Candle, £50.28
Uber cool Danish company Wood Wood have collaborated with French company Calming Park to create one heck of a unique candle. This chic cashmere scented candle is encased in a rather funky black case with Rorschach inspired inkblots on the exterior, all attractively packaged in a cardboard cylinder. Us beauty ladies reckon this candle has quite the masculine vibe to it, so stock up now ahead of Christmas day for a cheeky stocking filler for the man in your life!
Yes To Carrots Body Butter, £10.99
This is a truly delicious treat for your skin. Apply after a shower or bath and watch its rich formula melt into your skin, leaving it protected, soft, smooth and hydrated. We are certainly saying YES to all that!
NEOM Organics Scents of Christmas, £42
'With Christmas only six weekends away we can officially start getting excited and begin busily preparing our shopping lists. Neom Organics have made Christmas shopping easy this year for any candle-lovers like me with the release of their Scents of Christmas gift set. With three travel candles held in the most festive of glass holders, I defy anyone not to feel festive when they lift the lid and are greeted by the rich scent of cinnamon, pine and star anise!'

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Vivid Violet, £15.50
'This gorgeous, long-lasting, hydrating lipstick is my favourite for the AW13 season. Opting for a punchy purple is a trendy, vibrant way to rock the berry lip trend this season, and I love the subtle shimmer in this shade.'

Come on girls, give your make-up that extra WOW factor this weekend!
Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash, £12.99
Us beauty ladies are huge fans (and avid users) of the iconic Tangle Teezer hairbrush, so we could hardly contain our enthusiasm when the Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer landed on our desks. This latest innovation from those clever chaps at Tangle Teezer is a non-slip, water-loving, detangling hairbrush. Gone are the days of entering the shower with a tangled mess fearing how you would get the knots out as this brush has been designed to work best with water. Our top tip? Use in the shower to comb through your conditioner or mask for a seriously luxe weekend treat.
Topshop Matte Nails in Mystic, £6
'I've long been intrigued by the idea of matte nails, so I felt it was finally time to take the plunge. Topshop's make-up range is great for experimenting with new trends because it's so reasonable and the ranges are always big enough to find something you like. Topshop's matte nail varnish in mystic was perfect for me because it's a rich but mellow magenta, perfect for any time of year. The matte finish really worked because the colour is still punchy enough to still be striking. Its only flaw is that after a few days the matte effect wears off, leaving a glossy pink in its midst. I love it because it means you get two varnishes for the price of one. Every cloud…'
