Winner, winner – calming, bright and soothing. Lovely

  1. Lucas Pawpaw Ointment £4 – this creation from Australia can be used for everything that both niggles and is crucial to a smooth running day. I’m not being dramatic. Dry and chapped lips, nappy rash, rubbing feet; this will sort pronto.

  2. Aesop Rejuvenate Aromatique Body Balm £25 – sometimes jumping in the shower at 6.30am is a chore. I mean, isn’t it? Worry not, your post-shower routine can be luxurious and full of Australian Macadamia Nut oil. Now that’s a credential. They say that your skin will be infused with sandalwood and vanilla. So you’ll be radiating marvelousness on the bus.

  3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF20 £34 – always nice to have a bit of a glow about oneself. This product is majestic and not too over the top/Tinkerbell, it will give you a healthy look. What’s more like blueberries and tomatoes it contains antioxidants that will protect your skin.

  4. Chanel Rouge Allure £35 – when there’s nothing in your wardrobe to wear – gosh – and you’re not really feeling the day, similarly when you know you want to polish off a chic look, red lipstick is the answer. It will add lightning bolts to the minutes of your life.

  5. Smith’s Rosebud Salve £6 – founded in 1892 and containing seven essential oils Rosebud Salve can be used as an eye makeup base, a little accent for the cheeks and even as a product to calm your hair. It’s wonderful as a lip balm.

  6. Benefit BADgal lash mascara £17.50 – big lashes lining the eyes and making them pop. There are so many mascaras out there and this one is a favourite for the way you can build up to a seriously full lash.
