1000HOUR Individual Lashes - Aja's pick 

As a self-proclaimed falsies novice, when I do dabble in a bit more eye-drama, I need something foolproof. Last month I was lucky enough to see Taylor Swift live not once, but twice, so I wanted to up my usual ‘natural’ make-up game for Tay, and this is where the 1000HOUR individual lashes come into play. Available in a short-medium length, the individual clusters added the perfect amount of drama to my look (I went for Reputation vibes, if you were wondering). Easy to apply, and stayed on all night long – that's over 3.5 hours of non-stop dancing, sweating and singing my heart out. If that doesn’t prove the longevity of these bad boys, I’m not sure what will.

Weleda Skin Food Nourishing Night Cream - Scarlett's pick

Weleda Skin Food Nourishing Night Cream is my new favourite moisturiser. Unfortunately, I suffer from dry skin, no matter the season and have always struggled with it. This product, however, is a game changer. The texture is super thick and absorbs deeply into the skin, making me feel soft and hydrated. It has a subtle fragrance of lavender, which at first I didn’t think I’d like as fragrant moisturisers aren’t usually my first choice, however, this one, I absolutely love. It doesn’t leave any sticky residue and leaves me feeling fresh and hydrated before I sleep. To top it all off a little really goes a long way and it’s a price point you can’t beat!

Hemptuary Hemp Face and Body Soap - Sarah's pick

The Hemptuary Hemp Face and Body Soap has become my new favourite bar soap. I used to think there wasn’t much to a bar soap, but after trying this one out I have to say it’s superior. With its antioxidant properties, poppy seed and manuka oil, it leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. Often bar soaps leave a slight film or residue on the surface of the skin, but the Hemp Face and Body soap leaves you with that squeaky clean, fresh feeling – that for me is a must. I don’t often use it on my face, but I like that if travelling it can be used as an all rounder and save valuable space in your suitcase.

Carmex® Original Flavour Lip Balm Jar - Rachel's pick

The Carmex® original lip balm is a cult classic for good reason – it’s failproof and it works! A trusty sidekick and a must-have for the handbag or desk drawer. It’s the lip balm I always go back to knowing it will give my lips all the TLC they need, especially healing them when they’re dry and chapped. The nourishing formula, enriched with camphor and menthol in a base of cocoa butter and waxes provides instant, long-lasting relief, plus a nice, subtle hit of the infamous and comforting Carmex tingle on the lips! A little goes a long way too, so the sturdy, compact jar lasts a long time – a big yes to value!
