GALLERY>>This weekend's product picks

Prada Amber EDP, [a target="_blank" href="">£39[/a]

We love a sensual spritz and can't get enough of this at the moment. It's heady amber notes are a perfect pick-me-up before you go out and last for hours. Plus the beautiful bottle is the chicest fragrance wardrobe update we've ever seen.

Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket mascara, [a target="_blank" href="">£7.99 [/a]

Maybelline's newest mascara is explosive; it gives you super long and super thick lashes in seconds. It has a specially patented Supersonic Brush that applies the formula for a sleek and voluminous finish. There is no clumping and it's such exceptional value for money for the results you're getting. It's fast becoming my favourite mascara for a real Bambi-esque look.

Weleda Iris Hydrating Masque, [a target="_blank" href="">£13.50[/a]

We love a mask to help our skin in this Wintery weather and top on our list this week is this fine beauty. It's very gentle but ultra-nourishing so will leave your skin in tip-top condition.

Chanel The Poudre Signé De Chanel Illuminating Powder, [a target="_blank" href="">£46 [/a]

The latest release from Chanel, The Poudre Signé De Chanel Illuminating Powder, is a must have for highlight addicts. Not only does it have the most incredible embossing I've ever laid my eyes on, it's also a gorgeously subtle golden shade with a warm peach shimmer. Designed to be dusted over the cheekbones, centre of the forehead, down the bridge of the nose and cupids bow to illuminate and brighten.

Clarins' Instant Eye Make-Up Remover and Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover, [a target="_blank" href="">£16.50[/a]

Eye make-up is a nuisance to remove but Clarins have created a magical potion that takes off eye make-up fast, effectively and gently. It’s clever bi-phase lotion of oils and water breaks down the most stubborn mascaras and wipes away the excess without irritating. Brilliant for contact lens wearers like myself and ideal for sensitive eyes too. Looks like water and feels like water, the formula also protects your lashes and stimulates growth plus it smells amazing!

* Two types - one for heavy eye make-up and one for sensitive eyes

La Prairie SPF 30 Sun Protection, [a target="_blank" href="{keyword}|cgn%3Apla%C2%AC18820645|tsid%3A33956|cn%3Apla%C2%AC18820645|mt%3A{MatchType}|crid%3A19879381294&gclid=COWfpcqN8rQCFe7MtAodwisA3Q">£82[/a]

For any of you snow bunnies heading off to the slopes for a spot of skiing, we recommend this fine number. It's super light and won't clog pores but gives fantastic coverage and will protect against harsh sun rays whilst you holiday. We even like to use it mixed in with our moisturiser each day in Blighty.

Origins Make a Difference Plus Ultra-Rich Rejuvenating Cream, [a target="_blank" href="">£33 [/a]

The biting chill of winter and dry-prone skin is never a good combination, but Origins ultra-rich rejuvenating cream will give your skin all the TLC it needs. Thick, luxurious and completely decadent, it hydrates thirsty skin and intensely moisturises for an instantly soft and plump finish. With a fruity combination of watermelon and lychee it smells pretty good too and is a must-have skin saviour this winter.

Balance Me Skin Bright Hydrating Face Mist, [a target="_blank" href="">£20[/a]

A face spritz is an essential part of our skincare regime and this delicious one is to die for. It's very light and won't clog pores and contains that key hero ingredient, hyaluronic acid, to really nourish skin and give it a boost. Keep it on your desk so that you can use it at regular intervals throughout the day.

Benefit Sugarbomb Face Powder, [a target="_blank" href="">£23.50 [/a]

Gorgeously soft and warming, this blush adds a subtle glow to the cheeks. It complements both pale and medium complexions, and would make a great shimmering highlighter for darker skin tones. The palette’s combination of golden bronzes and pinks (rose, shimmering pink, soft plum, sumptuous peach) means that you don't end up with a harsh block of blush. I sweep the blush over the apples of my cheeks every day for a natural radiance.

3Lab 'M' Cream, [a target="_blank" href="">£170[/a]

This is as luxe as skincare gets - a rich and anti-ageing ace that you need in your life pronto! It helps cell turnover and reduces fine lines like no other - you can expect to see results within just one week. It's our skin SOS go-to this week.
