Benefit Dandelion blusher

£23.50, Look Fantastic

24 January 2017

“Lovely pretty box, comes with its own brush and lasts a long time. It is the perfect subtle, natural-looking, matte pink that makes you look fresh and awake but not covered in blusher.” ZansForCans

“I second the recommendation for Benefit Dandelion. I'm very fair-skinned and it gives me a natural-looking healthy glow! Smells nice too." DragonsLoveSoup

Topshop Jamie skinny jeans

From £40, Topshop

Topshop Jamie skinny jeans

“I'm 5ft 2" and love my Topshop Jamies. They're black – and have stayed black after many washes – and the sizing is good. They come up just the right fit in the waist for me.” YakiUdonYumYum

“I'm a pear shape, and would recommend Topshop Jamies too! Really comfy and don't go saggy in the wash, plus they fit nicely round the bum and waist.“ flirtygertiefromnumber30

“Another vote for Jamies! Try on sizes 8 and 10, they seem to vary a little between colours.” seefeld

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream

£25, John Lewis

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream

“It's an excellent overnight hand and foot cream, a great lip balm and I have even sometimes used it as face cream if I'm going to be outside for extended periods in winter.” LoupGarou

“I get very dry patches on my face and this is great on them.” applesandpears33

“I get mild eczema on my elbows and it really helps with that. Just don't lean your elbows on a table when you've just applied it or you'll slide right off!” Elfontheedge

Erborian HD CC cream

Sainsbury's Luxury Soft Touch leggings

£10, Sainsbury's

Sainsbury's Luxury Soft Touch leggings

“The lovely S&B ladies recommended the Sainsbury's leggings – not the ones that come in packs of 2 for £10. These ones are £10 for 1. They are nice thick material and mine still look new.” chanie44

“Another vote for the Sainsbury's ones. They are nice and high waisted too.” user1471583707

Read the discussion.

“I love the Sainsbury's luxury leggings. They're £10 a pair, have a deeper waistband which is fab for any bloating/sore stomach issues and are thick, last forever, washing well with no bobbling.” Piehunter

Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer

£299, John Lewis

11 January 2017

“I use it without the nozzles, and it dries my hair to perfection in just a few minutes. I have not had a professional blow dry since getting it. Lovely swishy hair all day!” gonegrey56

“My whole styling/drying time has gone from a hour to about 15 mins.” sparklyraindeers

“I love mine. It's really fast, light and quiet. I've got straight fine hair and the results with the Dyson are fantastic. The attachments are good too. I'd definitely recommend it mainly for the time it saves me every day.” knowler

£31, John Lewis

Estée Lauder Double Wear Light

“Estée Lauder Double Wear Light is great – good coverage but more of a BB cream in texture.” FenellaMaxwell

Benefit Erase Paste

£20.50, feelunique

4 January 2017

“I swear by Benefit's Erase Paste. It's in a league of its own and the only thing (other than my brow kit) that I wear most days." LittleFryingPan

“Erase Paste definitely lasts all day for me. It won't sort any physical issues like puffiness, only the colours… Love the stuff!” VivienneWestwoodsKnickers

“The Bo-ing or Erase Paste concealers are great. The kits come with instructions too which I find helpful as I don't really 'do' make-up!” noisewithdirton

“The Mum's Office ones are lovely." MrsLJ2014

“I have Mum's Diary ones as they have a column for everyone in the house so everyone's plans aren't bundled together.” RaspberryOverloadTheFi
