Their Professional 1 Hour Fast Lotion is a must-have if you’re short on time. Your tan will develop in as little as 1 hour for a light sun-kissed shade, 2 hours for a golden glow or 3+ hours for a deeper, darker bronzed tan. The guide colour makes it super easy to see where you have applied the lotion, helping you to achieve a streak-free finish and avoid any tanning mishaps. Added Aloe Vera & Vitamin E provide moisture to the skin, helping to keep your tan looking flawless and glowing for days.

ZO Skin Health Sunscreen + Powder SPF 30, £54

SPF in the beauty industry continues to be one of the fastest growing categories, and in an addition to its health benefits such as protecting the skin from UV rays all year round, there is now an on-going trend to create SPFs which are more in-line with our lifestyle needs, with “touch-up” formulas to see our skin protected throughout the day. ZO Skin Health Sunscreen and Powder has been developed to do more for the skin; offering free-radical, blue light and environmental protection, a sunscreen which is barely detectable on the skin, and a product for on-the-go sunscreen touch-up to achieve an oil-free complexion. This is the latest in Triple-Spectrum Protection for superior skin defence against UV rays, with a touch of luminosity for instant complexion perfection. Infused with advanced colour-enhancing pigments, the SPF has been designed to maintain hydration, absorb surface oil to minimise shine and provide buildable coverage for an even complexion.

Peep Club Instant Relief Eye Spray, £15

You haven’t imagined that feeling of strain in your eyes after a long day of screen time, these symptoms have a name – Dry Eye Syndrome – a condition that is affecting up to 80% of consumers. A concerning thought, especially when screen use has increased by 187% over these past three lockdowns.

Peep Club Instant Relief Dry Eye Spray has been formulated with Wild Harvested Colourless Sea Buckthorn Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate, both of which have been clinically proven to relieve symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome. These dual-active ingredients work in tandem to hydrate eyes on both the inside and the outside. Sea Buckthorn Oil slowly spreads across the tear film to help lock in the moisture of tears, which helps to naturally protest eyes from drying. Sodium Hyaluronate works by both strengthening tears and protecting them at a cellular level, fortifying tear fluid for better hydration throughout the day and also working on the surrounding eyelid and under eye area, to help hydrate, plump and protect the barrier of the delicate eye skin.
