Expert Trial Team: our tested triumphs
Is your bathroom cupboard overflowing? Is your other half struggling to find room for his toothbrush? Is your beauty stash getting the better of you?
I hate to be the one to break it you, but it may be time for a cull.
Now before you start gasping, fainting and looking for a way out, you can buy yourself some time by making a list of what products to keep, which to re-purchase and what new discoveries you should try.
Luckily for you we have plenty of reviews to help you through this tough time. Including the following four, which I think should definitely go on the ‘should try and re-purchase’ lists.

“I'm TERRIBLE when it comes to moisturising my body. I have all the best intentions, but when it comes to actually doing it, I'm always in a rush or too tired so I can never be bothered. As a result, my skin is constantly dry, and can get itchy and flaky too – hardly ideal. In this product I found the answer to all my issues; not only does it provide really effective, long-lasting hydration so that my skin feels soft and smooth, but it does so in seconds while I'm in the shower, so it never seems time consuming or too annoying a task. All I have to do is wash as I normally would with my regular body wash, rinse that off, and then – while I'm still in the shower – give my body a quick coat of the In-Shower Lotion, rinse that off and I'm done! It leaves my skin feeling smooth in literally no time at all!”
Boots Laboratories Skincare Serum7 LIFT Rejuvenating Night Cream

“I have been using the Boots Laboratories Anti-Age Serum 7 Lift Rejuvenating Night Cream for the past few weeks. I don’t always follow the cleanse, tone, moisturise routine at night so it has been really good for me to test this product as it has forced me into being disciplined about my night time skin care regimen. The packaging of this product is really premium and the cream is a lovely lightly scented rich cream which is quickly absorbed into my skin. After my first use of this I knew it was going to be a lasting relationship. My skin immediately felt super hydrated and super soft. The next morning my skin still felt soft and moisturised. What a great way to wake up! After a few weeks of use, the lines around my mouth and eyes seemed to have softened and my skin carries the soft hydrated feeling throughout the day. I think I have been converted to a proper night time routine!”

“I have tried many bronzers in my time, yet the feeling of glee when finding one that ticks all the boxes never dampens. This compact of golden goodness did not disappoint. First off, I found that the pigment was picked up by my brush really easily and glided onto my skin even easier. I applied the bronzer lightly from the top of my ear to the corner of my mouth to contour my cheekbones and I found that the golden shimmer gave my cheeks great definition without looking too brown. The hint of shimmer is also a winner in my books as it gave my skin that extra bit of radiance.”
bh’s Sam says….
“I love trying out different and new products, but this one is an absolute staple that I will buy again and again. Before Batiste Dry shampoo I was washing my hair every day. Now I can go 3-4 days without washing and my hair still looks amazing! Some people complain about powdery residue from dry shampoos, but if you follow the directions correctly and spray from a distance you shouldn’t have a problem. The tropical scent is nice and fresh without being too overpowering. I wouldn’t recommend doing away with real shampoo all together, but this definitely buys you a few extra days in your washing schedule. Less time in the shower and more time for fun!”
