Beauty SOS Products We Can’t Live Without


Oldies but goodies

There are certain beauty products which you come to rely on as old friends – they just make life so damn easier. And the best bit about them? They don’t cost the earth, so you won’t have to wait until pay day to get them – hurrah! Here are three that we would save from a fire …

Seche Vite
Who doesn’t love a time-saving top coat? Gone are the days when we had to spend up to an hour with our fingers spread out in front of us, puffing and blowing with impatience. This stuff gives you touch-dry nails in a matter of seconds. It’s basically a lifesaver for those of us who have ever painted our nails before falling into bed and suffered the dreaded ‘duvet imprint’ the next day. £9 Boots



DHC Cleansing Oil
This cult cleanser is stuff of legend among beauty editors and make up artists. A non-greasy oil, it’s packed with nourishing ingredients such as rose leaf and olive oil that removes everything (dirt, make-up, the lot) in one fell swoop. Perfect for when you’ve stumbled through the door after a heavy night and are about to embark on that frantic five minute cleanse before falling asleep at the sink… £12.50 Escentual


Where do we start with this one? Is your skin flushed, blemished or irritated? A blob of this left on overnight should sort it out. It’s also great for soothing sunburn, acne, stress-induced eczema – you name it! It’s primarily designed to treat nappy rash, so ideal to use on little ones in your life too. £2.49 Superdrug
