Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow

Estee Lauder
This colour-correcting moisturising primer from the master herself, Charlotte Tilbury, is made up of pearlescent pigments, green algae extract and vitamin b3, which work to even out the appearance of your skin tone, brighten, smooth, and blur away any imperfections. 

 


La Mer Eye Balm Intense

La Mer

La Mer's Eye Balm Intense is a bestseller for good reason. Made with Miracle Broth (the brand's patented ingredient) it soothes and nourishes the delicate under-eye area. The addition of Marine De-Puff Ferment (another patented ingredient) also helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness and de-stress the eyes for a well-rested appearance. Top tip: you can keep the fancy applicator in the fridge for an extra cooling effect.

Dior Capture Totale Super Potent Face Serum

Dior
 

Dior's researchers have found that a healthy radiance is determined by just 0.2% of your skin cells. Over time these lose their energy, so they've created a serum specifically designed to re-energise them, leaving you looking healthier, fresher and more awake.

Yves Saint Laurent Night Reboot Serum

Lancome
With promises to reduce signs of fatigue by the very next morning, Yves Saint Laurent's new Night Reboot Serum is basically a good night's sleep in a bottle. Enriched with moonlight cactus flower extract (which only blooms for six hours a year releasing a rare sugar when it does) and 3.4% glycolic acid, the formula smooths and refines the skin, removing dead skin cells and giving a boost of hydration.
