Remember the start of September when we had our fresh Summer tans, bounced into work back from a mindful week of me-time Mykonos, ready and raring to get stuck into fashion month? That is a distant, distant memory now.
September, as full as it is with fashion fun, is also ridiculously stressful as we slowly come to terms with no more Summer working hours or Aperol Spritz every lunchtime. That's why this pay day more than ever we deserve to treat ourselves to all the latest beauty-must haves. Whether it's soothing your skin with a new serum or giving your hair a much-needed moisturize after weeks of damaging it trying the latest styles, we've got you covered for the beauty-buys you need to restore you to your pre-September self...
