For this amazing prize, Sali has hand selected her favourite products on, totalling over £250 in value. Here she explains why…


1. 3 Custom Colour Lip & Cheek Stain, £15

One of the very few multi purpose stains that looks as good on the lips as it does on the cheeks (I usually find them dull and flat as lip colour). This gives a gorgeous, retro flush and is perfect with black eyeliner.


2. Astalift Jelly Aquarysta, £26

I use this night and day and the difference is very noticeable. It gives me a moist, hydrated glow and lovely plumping effect. Smells like heaven too.


3. Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre, £18.50

A cult classic. Beauty editors, models and dermatologists love this multi purpose cleanser, moisturiser and soothing balm.


4. Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder, £34.50

Legendary make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury used this on me a few months ago and I fell in love. Gives a beautiful glow wherever you need one.


5. Lipstick Queen in Medieval, £22

I adore this sheer, suits-everyone stain, inspired by the ancient practice of rubbing berries into the lips in place of make-up. Feels wonderfully comfy on the lips too.


6. Lipstick Queen in Jean Queen, £18

One of my all-time favourite lipsticks, this is a dusky rose shade to wear with jeans, T shirts, baby-sick drenched trackies – anything. Hugely flattering.



7. Sachajuan leave in conditioner, £21

I have super fine hair that can get bogged down by conditioner. When I want to make body last, I just shampoo then spritz this in before combing and drying. A lovely, light formula to detangle and add shine.


8. Trilogy Rosehip oil, £16.50

A hero among products. I like to apply it at nighttime after serum (I’m extremely dry so I often follow with nightcream too), to give a soft, moist, brightened complexion by morning.


9. REN Hydracalm Cleansing Milk, £18

I absolutely love this cleanser. It works brilliantly with a hot cloth on all skin types, leaving my skin soft and moist but not at all greasy. Smells gorgeous too.


10. MV Organic Rose Moisturiser, £18

I’ll admit to be being surprised by how much I loved this moisturiser. Velvety, soft cream with rose oil that leaves skin soft with a perfectly matte base for make-up.


11. Korres Shower Gel in Fig, £8

I love Korres Shower Gels. They foam beautifully without drying and have great scents. This one is my favourite.


12. Dr Bronner Almond Soap, £5.48

I adore Dr Bronner and am never without some under the sink. Use it on hands, face, clothes, make up brushes, babies… The gentle formula cleans everything without irritation. An iconic product.


13. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel, £29.50

I rate Elemis very highly. It’s a good British brand making high quality skincare and this exfoliator is one of its stand outs. Leaves skin looking pinker, zingy and alive.


14. Kevyn Aucoin Curling Mascara, £22

I discovered this, one of the first tubing mascaras, ten years ago and used it religiously until the range was withdrawn from the UK. Finally, it’s back and I cannot recommend it enough.
