    1. A cute and long-lasting lipgloss that looks like a li'l bottle of red wine.


    Promising review: "To start the packaging is great, looks expensive, I love it... and the lip stain itself is amazing. Goes on quite easily, maybe have to put 2 layers on & it really does stay all day. Wouldn't say it's waterproof but I've had ice cream, dinner & drinks and it's still stayed on, fades a little bit but still looks great! Definitely buying more colours." – Jamie De Maio

    2. A half-price facial steamer that will help with congested sinuses, as well as blocked pores.


    Promising review: "I bought this product as it was recommended by my gp due to me having cysts & adult acne on my face brought on by medication. Wow, after using once a day every other day for 2 weeks alongside my usual cleanse, tone & moisturise routine my face has cleared up by 95%. I wasn't expecting these kind of results at all but I've now binned my industrial strength concealer & foundation as I can walk out of the house with just a touch of regular concealer under my eyes & on the odd remaining spot (which are almost gone). Excellent product, thank you so much for giving me my confidence back. – Joanne Aspery

    3. A genius leather treatment balsam that will make-over tired sofas.

    Promising review: "Absolutely amazing product – we paid over £4,000 for our leather sofas 3 years ago and they've suffered with sun damage. We bought leather care kits from DFS (£30 per pack) to look after our investment, but they've done absolutely nothing. I saw this product at a fraction of the price and thought I'd give it a try and I could not be any happier with the results!!! The sofas look brand new, we've even been asked if we've had replacements - the leather balsam has made that much difference." – Caroline Crawley

    9. A weirdly useful cotton pad holder that you'll wonder how you lived without.

    Promising review: "This holder is for the round cotton pads not cotton balls etc..As this has a gap going all the way up, to help when your filling this up with cotton pads. It holds roughly 100 cotton pads too...Really looks so much better in person than online. I think it's excellent value for money, that does the job is supposed to. I'm looking at getting some more of these for cotton buds and other bits in my bathroom." – miss pinky

    13. These squat-proof yoga pants that come in a wide range of sizes and colours.

    Promising review: "I ordered the grey and will admit I was a little nervous as lighter coloured leggings are notoriously bad for being see through during squats. The material of these leggings is so thick and they are so opaque that no matter how much you bend and stretch, you won't see a thing! I have attached photographs of me training so you can see this for yourself and see just how well the leggings move with your body.

    There is a small concealed pocket on the inside of the waistband at the front, the perfect size to keep a locker key in while at the gym. This pocket sits completely flat when empty. A fantastic product that I would recommend to anybody looking for quality gym wear at a great price." – Sarah Louise

    16. An all-natural screen cleaner that will clean your gross phone, laptop and TV with no smears.

    Promising review: "I must admit I was a little dubious about this product as I have tried many times to clean my laptop screen only to find that it remained very smeary. However I followed the instructions and sprayed a little drop on to the supplied cloth and wiped my screen and much to my amazement the screen came up sparkly clean. You have to try it to believe it. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone." – Terence

It's also alcohol free which means your skin is taking in all the good stuff." – Pooja Sharma
