view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Been burning the candle at both ends? Here are the products that will leave you feeling fresh for the new year

1. Diorshow

£23, Christian Dior, available nationwide

Blue mascara might seem retro for a time all about looking forward but it will make eyes appear whiter and brighter in a nifty optical illusion.

2. Clarifying detox shampoo

£10.50, Phyto, johnlewis.com

Wash last year out of your hair – and any styling products that helped you get the look last night – with this clarifying shampoo, containing eucalyptus essential oil, from Phyto.

3. GinZing eye cream

£21, origins, boots.com

This uses ginseng and magnolia extracts to tackle the tell-tale signs of fatigue such as dark circles and under-eye bags. A delicate iridescence reflects light off dulled skin.

4. Aroma Cleanse Essential cleansing milk

£20, decleor, decleor.co.uk

Remove even stubborn waterproof eye make-up with this gentle sweet almond oil-based cleanser that won't sting or irritate sensitive eyes.

5. Nude Magique BB Cream

£9.99, L'Oreal Paris, 0800 030 4032

Hailed as the new wonder in cosmetics, CC (colour correcting) creams are an enhanced BB cream and are worth a look-out.

6. Caffeine under-eye roll-on

£10.20, Garnier, available nationwide

This clear cooling, soothing product can be applied in the morning and then topped up over make-up as tiredness sets in throughout the day.

7. Facial cleansing wipes

£3.05, Nivea, available nationwide

If you started the year with the remains of last night's make-up, a swipe of these freshly scented wipes imbued with Moroccan argan oil will help.

8. Beauty Flash Balm

£28, Clarins, available nationwide

This tried and tested formula is best applied just before make-up to plump, brighten and tighten the skin on the face, neck and décolletage.

9. Energizing foaming exfoliant

£68, Sisley, johnlewis.com

Essential oils of lavender and rosemary will revive the senses in a more relaxing way than caffeine. Massaging the micro-beads into wet skin surely counts as calorie-burning activity.

10. Dynaspot

£22, Eve Lom, evelom.com

Thanks to tea tree oil, salycic acid, fennel and chamomile this paste-like product is great for drying out spots and blemishes and far more effective than toothpaste.
