From GHD stylers to Batiste Dry Shampoo, here's beauty essentials that still deliver incredible results and have had a make-over

Here are some all-time favourite beautifiers that have earned their place in the hall of fame and are finally getting a little make over of their own.


If you can’t live without your heated hair tools, you’ll know that GHD offers some of the best stylers in the game.

But you’ll also be aware of the toll too much heat can take on your barnet. It’s time to invest in the new GHD Platinum+ Styler, £175, which has been developed to keep heat damage at bay without having to compromise your styling results.

The clever technology determines the thickness of your hair to work out how much heat should be pumped through the ceramic plates, helping to prevent frazzled locks.

Not only that, but sensors also monitor the heat 250 times a second to ensure that the setting never goes over the damage-dodging temp of 185°C.

The result? Hair that’s up to 70% stronger compared with using a regular styler at 230°C. Now that’s a stat to shout about.

When it comes to staying ahead of the brow game, Benefit has always nailed it – and when tinted brow gel Gimme Brow first launched in 2014, brow routines were revolutionised.

By last year, it was the top-selling prestige eye brow product in the UK.** After a brief discontinuation earlier this year, it’s back thanks to popular demand – and it’s better than ever.

Benefit Gimme Brow+, £20.50, now adds more oomph thanks to its tweaked new formula, and the marshmallow extract conditions hair fibres to leave brows totally on fleek.

Available in eight different shades to suit every tone, it’s water-resistant and lasts for ages. We’re obsessed.

When you think about preventing stretch marks, minimising scars or quenching dehydrated skin, you instantly think of Bio-Oil.

And after decades of the original formula being a staple on your bathroom shelf, the brand has developed an upgrade we can’t get enough of.

Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel, £4.99, is an oil-based gel that quickly gets to work on thirsty skin, thanks to nourishing shea butter and hydrating glycerine.

It creates an invisible, protective film across the surface of skin to help prevent it losing any further moisture.

If you’re savvy with skincare, you’ll know all about Dermalogica’s wonder products.

Now bestselling Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream, £37, has had an update.

The brand claims the iconic formula gives 48 hours hydration and now contains new “hydramesh” technology that creates a barrier to stop skin losing moisture.

It’s also got grape seed extract to help fight damage from the environment and soothing mallow, cucumber and arnica to hydrate.

When it comes to getting rid of greasy roots in an instant, we’re always reaching for our trusty bottle of Batiste.

But with each spritz your scalp and locks get drier and drier, which no amount of deep-conditioning can seem to resolve.

Enter Batiste Dry Shampoo & Hydrate, £3.99.

It’s exactly the same as your old-time, oil-zapping fave, only with the added benefit that it’ll leave your hair feeling more hydrated and moisturised than ever thanks to the addition of avocado oil. It’s true love.

When US cosmetics giant Glossier finally crossed the pond last year, beauty fanatics across the nation jumped for joy.

And with fans continuously waxing lyrical about all of the products available in the range, from the glow-boosting face serum Super Glow, £24, to the quirky cream blushers Cloud Paint Duo, £25, it’s no wonder that the hype hasn’t yet died down.

As if we didn’t have enough reasons to love it already, the brand has just reformulated Glossier Generation G Lipstick, £14, with blue agave to keep your pout feeling moisturised for longer (ciao for now, flaky matte lips).

One swipe will leave a just-blotted look on your lip – so you can wear the buildable colour (pick from six suit-all shades) as sheer or as bold as your mood dictates.
