By Katie Robertson

Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms, £2.99

'The stateside cult lip balm has landed and everyone is going barmy for these playfully-coloured Baby Lips available in six flavours! Packed full of vitamins, Shea butter, plumping centella and SPF20, they are a fun way to keep your lips moisturised and hydrated for hours, along with a pop of juicy colour. However if you prefer a clear finish then “mint fresh”, “hydrate” and “intense care” can prep your lips perfectly for your favourite bold lipstick! Available now in Boots and Superdrug, £2.99 each.'

Cloud Nine Quick Dry Potion, £17.95

'Meet hair hero, Cloud Nine Quick Dry Potion. It does exactly what it says on the tin, speeds up the amount of time it takes to blowdry the hair as well as adding some heat protection and taming any frizz.'

He-Shi Express Liquid Tan, 300ml, £37

'I've tried so many different fake tanning brands, and this Express Liquid Tan by He-Shi is my absolute favourite. It has a liquid consistency which is a bit of a surprise at first, but it blends in perfectly and dries really fast. You don't smell like a tin of old biscuits and the golden brown glow really lasts.'

Sensai Silky Purifying Silk Peeling Powder, £55

If you’re feeling in need of a little rest and relaxation this weekend then the Sensai Purifying Silk Peeling Powder is certainly for you. Spent years in development this pampering little beauty is a triple threat as it works to exfoliate, cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. With extracts of Koishimaru silk and Ginseng, Sensai is a wonder in preventing skin roughness, banishing impurities and helping skin to remain youthful and radiant. The best part is it’s suitable for all skin types-so ladies whilst the price tag may come a little high, the benefits that come from this spa in a bottle are most definitely worth it!

Thé Vert & Bigarade Perfumed Shower Gel, £11.00

Make sure to use L’Occitane’s newest shower gel, Thé Vert & Bigarade this weekend to help scrub off the stress and chaos from the past week. Made with green tea extract from Japan and bitter orange essential oil from the Mediterranean, this gel is sure to leave you feeling refreshed, cleansed and truly invigorated. Designed for both men and women this shower gel is the perfect accompaniment to a romantic and relaxing night in with your other half!

Bahoma Ambiance Perfumed Candle in Cristal, £25.95

We know what you’re thinking, that this is just any old simple candle but do not be fooled as this pot of scented bliss took a whopping 75 hours to make so you know a lot of special love and care has gone into its creation. Indeed, Cristal is the essence of absolute luxury and sophistication with notes of peach, amber and Lily combining to create a classical mixture of musky and floral scents. So what better way to spend Saturday night than kicking off your heels and letting this scent of pure hedonism fill your surroundings with bliss and tranquillity.

L’Oréal Advanced Correcting Serum, £16.99

In the Grazia beauty office this week we’re just loving all things Cheryl Cole and in particular her new Perfection Skincare range from L’Oréal. Our favourite is the perfecting serum that contains LR412 and Perline P to help tighten and brighten tired looking skin. Just massage a few drops into your face morning and evening and your skin will be looking pixel perfect in no time!

Hungary mud, £20.00

If you fancy getting a bit down ‘n’ dirty this weekend then go and get yourself a pack of this marvellous mud. We’re all quite excited about this one in the Grazia beauty office as there’s nothing quite like it in the shops right now-not only does it act to improve skin damage and body aches and pains but this fabulous product also has a multitude of spa treatments in it ranging from a facial mud mask to a full body mud wrap. To top it all off Hungary Mud flushes out the toxins from your body helping to promote the ultimate sense of stress relieve and relaxation. Depending on how you want to use your mud, just add water or even try adding a sloosh of your favourite body oil, for a really nourishing treatment.

Chapstick Lipsations Shimmer in Berry. £4.49

'Chapstick is a classic, but Lipsations, Shimmer Berry is set to be cult. It costs nothing considering what it actually does. It tastes so yummy you want to eat it and gives lips a subtle gloss finish. It's one of the only things I'll share, because I feel everyone just has to know about it; I'm hooked.'

Trilogy, Smooth and Nourish, Shampoo and Conditioner, £12.50 each

'Trilogy's Smooth & Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner are an absolute treat. They smell like a mix between strawberry and sherbet but aren't sickly sweet on hair. After I accidentally used a shampoo that stripped my hair of all moisture, Trilogy brought it back to life. It makes hair super soft and lathers up so much, that you don't need to use a lot. It's not the cheapest but it is divine!'
