BRIGHTEN UP

From renowned Aussie haircare brand, Mr.Smith, comes a brand new treatment for blonde hair. Applied to just-washed locks, before conditioner, Blond enhances by removing yellow and brassy tones from bleached and coloured hair. Almond, lavender and orange peel oil, meanwhile, help calm the scalp and enrich with vitamins that help repair damaged cells.

It’s the Clarins cult product that we always reach for at this time of year – and you should too.

VA VA VOOM

Add bounce and shine with Green People’s best-selling Quinoa and Artichoke range, which just so happens to be approved by the Vegan Society. Made with over 80% natural, organic ingredients, including artichoke extract to protect the hair shaft and reduce frizz, quinoa for its volumising properties and chamomile to sooth the scalp, the trio are definitely worth a try if your mane is in need of a lift and a touch of TLC this season.

FLORAL FAVE

Inspired by the wilderness of the countryside, Jo Malone’s new, permanent scent is bound to be a big-hitter with outdoorsy types in search of a new, easy-to-wear daytime scent. Infused with sweet honeysuckle, delicate rose, moss and a touch of davana, it’s a perfectly gentle, feminine floral scent for autumn.

BEAUTY BOOST

Offering the heroic hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid – with an extraordinarily low price tag – this oil-free treatment penetrates deep into skin’s layers to deliver intense, long-lasting moisture that swiftly smooths and perfectly plumps. Enhanced with vitamin B5 to increase efficacy, it’s a lightweight skin boost that leaves skin feeling silky and supple.

BRILL BALM

Frédéric Malle’s after sun balm is a must-buy for anyone heading to warmer climes this autumn. The silky water-gel texture melts into the skin, soothing sunburn and helping to perk up tans, while the fresh, citrusy scent of magnolia, bergamot, lemon and grapefruit lingers for hours – meaning you can skip the perfume.

TONE UP

This gentle, yet surprisingly powerful, toner combines state-of-the-art technology with natural ingredients to smooth and soften, even out skin tone and provide deep hydration. Packed with alguronic acid, soothing camomile and purifying witch hazel, it’s just the tonic for skin that’s feeling rough, dry and congested after a season of sunshine, holidays and late nights.

SUNDAY SMELL

If you love the smell of freshly-washed sheets and clean-as-can-be cotton, then this is the scent for you. With notes of lily and patchouli, just a few sprays transports you back to bed, cocooned in crisp, just-washed sheets, with the sun shining through the window. In other words, the perfect Sunday morning.
