An instant transformation for all waves, curls and coils, this iconic jelly defrizzes hair and adds unparalleled definition and shine. Lightweight, medium hold and with incredible slip through the hair, there are no curl styles this jelly can't achieve.

Payday Treat

Sometimes you just need a little bit of luxury in your beauty routine, and we’ve got plenty of premium beauty products at Boots that make the perfect payday treat. Here are three of this year’s contenders.

Vote for: Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Baking & Setting Powder

• Size: 20g

• Dermatologist tested

• Suitable for all skin types

Weightless, easy to use and long-lasting, it’s not hard to tell why this super fine loose powder has made the shortlist. Its silky texture blends seamlessly into skin to control shine and blur your complexion with no caking in sight. It can be used to set make-up all over or to bake for an airbrushed, luminous matte finish.

Vote for: ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

• Size: 100g

This indulgent cleanser transforms into three unique textures for the ultimate cleansing experience: it nourishes as a balm, easily removes make-up as a cleansing oil and hydrates as a cleansing milk. And it doesn’t stop there. Its unique blend of nine essential oils including lavender, chamomile and eucalyptus smells like heaven in a jar to invigorate the senses whilst leaving skin feeling deeply cleansed, soothed and supremely soft.

Vote for: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

• Size: 150ml

Get that coveted Brazilian Bum Bum Cream effect and experience absolute body joy with this luxurious cream. Infused with powerful, caffeine-rich guarana and a Brazilian blend of skin-loving ingredients, it melts in and visibly smooths the skin whilst leaving a hint of shimmer. And better yet, it’s bursting with notes of salted caramel and pistachio for a scent like no other.

As Seen On Social

You know it’s a must-have when a beauty buy keeps popping up on your feed, like this multi-tasking marvel from Revolution. Will it get your vote?

Vote for: Revolution Super Base Vitamin Base Primer

• Size: 25ml

Say hello to your new go-to moisturising primer! It’s the ultimate base to prep your skin for make-up, with all the comfort of a moisturiser and benefits of a primer.

Packed with skin-nourishing shea butter, hyaluronic acid and vitamins B, C and E, the formula works throughout the day to hydrate and nourish your skin. The best part? It’s completely translucent so it can be used alone as part of your skincare routine or applied before foundation to prep and plump the skin.

Skincare Saviour

What better feeling than finding a skincare product you know you can always rely on? Like this cult beauty icon from Elizabeth Arden.

Vote for: Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant

• Size: 50ml

• Eight ways to use

This legendary formula really does it all. Not only does it soothe, hydrate, protect and deeply moisturise your whole body, but it can also be used as a nail and cuticle conditioner, a highlighter and to tame eyebrows and flyaway hairs. No wonder it’s celebrated by make-up artists and beauty influencers around the globe.

Glowing skin is always in and these three nominees are here to help you get it.

• Size: 200ml

Fast-absorbing and with a silky finish, this oil-based spray intensely moisturises very dry and sensitive skin, for smooth and even-looking skin in just one week.
