Clean & Clear Advantage Clear and Soothe Foaming Wash, £4.99

Commuting and pollution can play havoc with our skin, and it’s no surprise that you might be feeling a little less than flawless by Friday. This refreshing, aloe vera scented foam is the perfect thing for combating the everyday stress we put our skin through. Lather it on- your skin will thank you later!

VO5 Smoothly Does It Straightening Lotion, £5.99

After a two year wait, Glastonbury is back, and the line-up this year is better than ever. But for the more high-maintenance amongst us, it can be a challenge to look our best while camping for three days in the mud. Step forward VO5’s Smoothly Does It Straightening [a target="_blank" href="">Lotion[/a]. This clever little product is not only small enough to slip into your bag, but only needs to be used every three washes to ensure silky smooth locks all weekend long.

Acqua Di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Arancia di Capri Shower Gel, £26

Whether you’ve just come back from your holidays, or you are impatiently awaiting your getaway, this fresh refreshing [a target="_blank" href="">shower gel[/a] will definitely get you in the mood for a Mediterranean break. The lotion is enriched with vitamin E, which helps to stave off signs of aging and its moisturising qualities mean your body will be left feeling wonderfully soft, making sure your skin will be beach ready!

Pearl Drops Restore White, £3.99

We all know what foods and drinks we shouldn’t eat to ensure our teeth remain sparkling white. Tea, coffee, red wine- unfortunately all our guilty pleasures are on the hit list. That’s why Pearl Drops are the perfect remedy; the whitening tooth polish promises to remove all those pesky stains, while actually strengthening your teeth.

Urban Apothecary Strawberries and Cream Candle, £30

What epitomises the Great British Summer better than Wimbledon? The sparkling tennis whites, the fear of the rain, and most importantly the delicious courtside treat of strawberries and cream! Urban Apothecary London have tapped into our fondness for the dessert with their Strawberries and Cream [a target="_blank" href="">scented candle[/a], a gorgeous blend of fragrances that perfectly captivate the senses. Light it up and be transported to SW19.

300 Trecento Treatment, £26

Us girls put our hair through a lot- straightening, colouring and blow drying all mean our mane could do with a dose of TLC by the end of the week. [a target="_blank" href="">300 Trecento[/a] is a luxurious hair nourishing treatment to be used for 300 minutes, to thoroughly moisturise, strengthen and actually rebuild your tired tresses. Pop it on and see the results after only one use.

The Body Shop's Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil, £16

"Luscious and lightweight, this [a target="_blank" href="">dry body oil[/a] from The Body Shop's new Honey Bronze collection is the perfect answer to faking some sunkissed skin this Summer. It glides on beautifully to give your skin a bronzed radiant glow, that is easily washed off the next morning, and smelling sweetly of rich honey there is no risk of that dreaded 'fake tan smell here!"

Milly from [a target="_blank" href="">Pearls & Poodles[/a]

Laura Mercier Lip Crayon in Mayan Sun, £16.50

"I had my doubts about lip crayons, mainly because I couldn't see how they could better a lipstick. [a target="_blank" href=",en_GB,pd.html">Laura Mercier's Lip Crayon[/a] has made me see the light. It's easy and good looking enough to carry around and doesn't need to be sharpened. Most importantly, it is so silky it glides onto lips making application super simple. Mayan Sun, a soft coral, looks great with a tan and the fuchsia pink Folklore, is bang on trend."

It's nice and creamy in consistency, and glides across the skin to provide a perfectly prepped base.
