Delicious. Apply a layer at night and in the morning your lips with be wonderfully moisturised and looking beautiful. If you have particularly dry lips, you can apply this during the day too. If you want to put lipstick over this, just wait 15 minutes after applying the buttermask and you're good to go. Such a lifesaver.

7. Dr Jart Rubber Mask Bright Lover, €10.50

It looks intriguing and it is! Dr Jart’s Rubber Mask Bright Lover is an effective two-step process. The first — a hydrating ampoule — brightens the skin while the second (the yellow wrapping rubber mask) encourages active ingredients to remain on the skin rather than evaporate. After 30 to 40 minutes, you’ll look gorgeously radiant.

8. FOREO LUNA play plus Facial Cleansing Brush, €49

Those 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations work wonders. The facial cleansing brush is a true game changer, removing dirt, oil and makeup residue. Its silicone brushes also mean it’s a whole 35 times cleaner to use than that of nylon cleansing brushes. It’s hypoallergenic, BPA and phthalates free, rechargeable, travel friendly and 100 percent waterproof. The handiest little beauty must-have ever!
