    This toner really works – like seriously, just a few drops warmed in your hands and pressed on to the skin and it gets rid of dull skin and leaves you with a glow. This is one of those products you don't think you need until you start using it.

    2. Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment, £85

    So this is expensive stuff – like, really expensive stuff – but it's worth it. You can mix it into a mask or use it alone. What's great about it is it gently exfoliates your skin, and works wonders on hyperpigmentation. I use it myself and I swear by it. It really is life-changing stuff.

    3. Oskia Perfect Cleanser, £32.50

    It feels like a home facial every time you use it. It smells so good, and leaves your skin feeling silky-soft and smooth. It has been amazing for my combination skin that's prone to hormonal spots.

    4. Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, All Skin Types, £22

    Clinique / Via

    Yes, you can get lots of cleansers that are cheaper and remove makeup, but this one is just really good. It's an oil-based cleanser that transforms from a solid balm to a silky oil when applied. It will literally take off all your makeup, including waterproof mascara without rubbing and irritation.

    5. Clarisonic Mia, £99

    Clarisonic / Via

    This is a beauty investment worth making. It will help remove all your makeup, and solve many of your complexion woes. Have a look at Tanya Burr's review of the product if you need convincing.

    6. Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil, £29

    Caudalie / Via

    It's cruelty-free and it has an amazing way of hydrating and nourishing the skin. After using it your skin will feel fresh and really taken care of.

    7. Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser, £32

    Tata Harper / Via

    This green bottle holds so much goodness. It cleans the skin, does a light exfoliation without irritating, and smells fantastic. It's really worth it.

    8. Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask, £32.95

    Peter Thomas / Via

    It's an amazing mask that works very well. It deeply cleanses and decongests skin without stripping moisture, which is great.

    9. GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment, £45

    Spacenk / Via

    This a lifesaver for acne-prone skin. The mask helps fight skin concerns such as breakouts, discolouration, blackheads, and even razor bumps. It has charcoal in it, which helps draw out dirt and impurities. You will probably see improvements after one use.

    10. DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, £21.50

    DHC / Via

    If you have super oily, acne-prone skin, you should give this a miss. The oil cleanser will remove makeup and prep your skin for the rest of your routine. Just a little tip: Give your face a nice quick massage to boost blood circulation when you're applying it. Check out Amazon reviews here.

    11. Origins A Perfect World Face Cleanser, £21

    Origins / Via Debenhams

    If your skin is somewhat sensitive and you are using a cleanser with salicylic acid in it, you should STOP. The stuff is probably too harsh for everyday use on your skin and you should go for a cleanser like this. It is nice and gentle and won't leave your skin feeling tight after use.

    12. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster, £23.50

    Ole Henriksen / Via

    Never underestimate the power of vitamin C. This product has plenty of it. By the time you are done using the tiny bottle (a little goes a long way) your skin will be tighter, healthier, and cleaner.

    13. Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser, £24

    ole henriksen / Via

    The reviews will tell you how great this product is. It removes all makeup while being gentle on your face. It leaves your skin feeling cleansed, soft, and supple and it smells so good.

    14. Philosophy Miracle Worker Overnight Age-Resetting Anti-Wrinkle Moisturiser, £45.50

    Philosophy / Via

    So if you are really into your anti-ageing products then you should really get this. It is expensive but it will last you for months. When you use it two to three nights a week for a couple months you'll notice generally clearer, brighter skin.

    15. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, £30

    fresh / Via

    AMAZING for sensitive skin, it feels like having aloe and cucumber on the skin. It is very mild and gentle and helps to clean impurities and unclog pores.

    16. Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting Liquid Exfoliant, £23.50

    Paula's Choice / Via

    It works, and that's all you really want from a product. It helps to make pores smaller and it really helps with breakouts. It also helps skin feel smoother and even helps to get rid of blackheads. Patricia Bright includes it in her getting rid of pores routine.

    17. Murad Time Release Blemish Cleanser, £25

    Murad / Via

    It does what it says and does it really well. You will have to use it twice a day for a few weeks to see a difference and when you do, you will see it is totally worth it.
