The spring beauty lust-list


We share what we're craving in our beauty bags this season...


Elemis Pro-Definintion Facial Oil, £65, John Lewis

This little bottle of facial oil promises to get your skin into shape and keep it there! It's designed for maturer skin that needs oil abundant in essential fatty acids to keep it well moisturied and hydrated. 

La Source Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy, £23, Crabtree & Evelyn 

We love the smell of this nourishing hand cream enriched with ingredients from the ocean, such as green seaweed extract and red sea algae. It's perfect for pampering dry winter hands. 

Clarins Pore Perfecting Matifying Foundation, £28, Debenhams and John Lewis

If you have oily skin, this foundation is for you. It blurs imperfections while keeping shine under control without making your skin look dull thanks to its soft focus pearls that reflect light to give a subtle luminosity. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss Top Coat in Impulsion, £26, Boots, Debenhams and John Lewis

Pop some of this translucent neon orange-yellow gloss over your favourite Chanel lipstick shade to pep it up for even more radiance. It really is the icing on the cake! 

Clinique Fresh Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin C, £24 for 28 x 0.5g packettes, Boots, Debenhams and John Lewis 

Powder cleansers are new on the beauty scene and this one offers an exhilarating cleansing experience that will reveal healthier, younger looking skin thanks to its dose of Vitamin C. 

Origins Flower Fusion Hydrating Sheet Mask in Raspberry, £5, Boots and John Lewis

Refresh your skin and your senses with this hydrating sheet mask. Apply the mask to clean skin, relax for 10 minutes then massage the remaining essence into your skin to leave it feeling petal-soft.
