How I lusted and pined after Anastasia's brow products for months before rounding up on one purchase. Somehow, the company's social media manages to make me want to purchase their entire stock. Good job peeps!

You don't need to be a skintellectual to know that hydration is the key to youthful, glowy skin. But come summer and we all ditch those creamy cold creams for I'll just drink 2 gallons of chilled Pimm's instead! I blame the uber rich body creams that feel far too icky to slather on muggy Sunday afternoons. But little did I know that our trusted creator of the petroleum jelly - Vaseline, has created a light, effective, aloe-fix for flakiness. Vaseline's Intensive Care Aloe Soothe comes in a large bright green aerosol and is literally a breeze to work with. Just spray it a few inches away from the skin to coat the limbs in white liquid-like foam. Massage it quickly and voila! It feels super light and the skin drinks it up within seconds. The cucumbery aloe vera smell is refreshing and quite subtle, which I love. I'd rather smell of Thierry Mugler's Angel than an over perfumed body cream. And it feels heavenly to spray on after a scorching episode in the sun. The Aloe Vera infused hydrant cools and calms over heated skin. If you are prone to post-sun irritation, this one might just be your elixir des skin! I wish they launch a travel-friendly size so I can chuck it in my Zara bucket bag for those unplanned sunny spells. 140 years of skincare knowledge for £3.50? Yes, Please!

After trying their cheap as chips Hyaluronic Acid serum, I thought it wouldn't break the bank trying out a couple more things from the range. No joke, I lingered on their website, reading geeky, scientific benefits of all the complicatedly named products for hours. It's just so different from the rest.

If you know someone who is obsessed with turning back the hands of time when it comes to dry sensitive skin, then Crabtree & Evelyn has just the present for them! All of Crabtree & Evelyn’s summer gift sets are beautifully draped in different prints and are bound to make ones day. I am in Love with Josey Shenoy’s vintage but very British illustrations made up of glasshouses, flowers, bees, plants and my absolute favourite - afternoon tea (nom nom). Draped in a beige and pink vintage floral tea cup print comes Goat’s Milk Shower Cream and Body Milk. I was of course intrigued by this Egyptian inspired goat milk concoction, milk being Cleopatra's beauty staple.

Expensive creams keep our exterior skin in check but what about the depleting nutrients needed for skin cells to heal and grow? Collagen is the queen of all proteins that keep our skin looking youthful. Those obsessed with anti-ageing lotions, need to actually replenish collagen levels along with specific vitamins, acids and minerals, to delay the signs of telltale ageing. Now, I have tried a few variations of abnormally large collagen capsules that are super hard to swallow, tend to make me feel a bit sick in the stomach and are often found at the bottom of my drawer a few years later. Arriving in the form of liquid vials, LQ Liquid is the first one to make drinkable potions packed with a high-quality fish collagen (i.e. gelatine free) to supplement your skin.
