La Prairie Cellular Radiance Eye Cream, $595.

A go-to eye cream for anyone worried about skin ageing and dark circles around the delicate eye area. It seems to rebuild and strengthen the skin so that fine lines are smoothed away. It leaves the skin brighter and dark circles become non-existent. You might even be able to skip your under-eye concealer after two weeks to a month of using this daily.

La Mer The Lip Balm, $110.

While paying over $100 for a lip balm may seem crazy to some, one dab of this can transform dry, chapped lips into smooth soft puckers overnight. It smooths instantly and doesn't feel sticky or waxy at all, plus its blend of aloe leaf extract and eucalyptus globulus leaf oil gives lips some much-needed TLC and the mild mint scent and cooling sensation is almost addictive.

You massage the balm on your skin, which feels so superbly relaxing, you won't want to stop, and it melts the day's makeup and grime away. Then simply wet hands to emulsify the balm before rinsing off leaving skin super soft and totally pampered.

Women who have tried this luxurious hair mask say it's a habit you can't (or just don't want to) break. It absorbs quickly into strands so you don't feel like you're just washing it all down the drain. And it leaves your mane perfectly hydrated, silky soft and weighty, almost like you just stepped out of the salon after a hair treatment and wash-and-blow. The perfect hair mask for damaged, abused tresses.

This is one concealer many who have tried it willingly swear by. It glides on surprisingly smooth despite it's solid stick format, and builds easily to cover any offending blemishes. It's smooth texture makes it great for the under eye area too and it lasts all day without drying or caking up. A must have in any makeup pouch.

3Lab WW Eye Cream, $400, from escentials.

Pricey but worth the results. Apply at night and the next morning, lines and crow's feet are softened, dark circles look less severe, the skin around the eye area is firmer and more supple. The cream texture is pretty rich though so just a tiny bit goes a long way, which sort of justifies the price tag, no?
