Monday morning beauty buys to help cheer you and your body up

Another week has disappeared into nothing and we're left those seven days closer to Christmas.

This week we have some great products that will not only perk up your mood, but your skin to.

Prepare to look great.

Winter months can leave us feeling sluggish, tired and generally looking a little more dull. We crave some sunshine and the appearance of the summer time. Vitamin D is the most important thing that we get from the sun and now thanks to NeuroSun you can get it in a delicious, low-calories drink. NeuroSun protects the immune system, increases bone development, heart and muscle health and naturally enhances your mood. (Available from WH Smith, Asda and Spa, RRP £1.79) Nelsons Pure & Clear Anti-Blemish Facial Wash - 125ml Nelsons Pure & Clear Anti-Blemish Treatment Gel

The cold winter weather can strip the skin of natural moisture leaving it dry and de-hydrated so it is essential to put that little extra care into your beauty regime, especially when we have things like central heating that can only further aggravate conditions. The Nelsons Pure & Clear range will look after your skin in the coming months and make sure that any nasty breakouts are kept under control. You don't have to worry either, the moisturiser from this range is the perfect base for any make-up and keeps it looking fresh all day long. (Available from Boots, prices start from £5.45)

If you're after that poreless beauty look - and let's face it, who isn't? - then this product is a must buy for you. The Smashbox Poreless Blush and Fan Brush contains velvety smooth fine powder blush that floats over the surface of skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Get a natural-looking flush of colour with this luxurious shade that works with every skin tone.

These are the perfect little treat to perk up your lunch hour, plus they're completely free when you buy two bottles of Diet Coke. Model's Own lipglosses are not too sticky and the colours available mean that you will find one you like, or you'll have a tough time choosing which one. Pure Plum, Lacquer Red, Glossy Pink or Golden Nude are all on offer, so head to your nearest Boots between now and Dember 27 - be there quick you don't want them to run out.Barry M Gold Foil Nail Effects

Barry M have done it again with their special effects nail varnish. Having always been a fan of the brand's nail varnish, I was even more delighted when they put these on offer. A obvious rival to the more expensive special effects on offer, the New Croc Effect has put them even more in the shade. Compared to the shatter effects, this new style leaves nails looking that little more expensive and up market, it's going to be the only way to have your nails this party season. *Tip* try the special effects gold and silver foil nail varnish from Barry M underneath so the colour really stands out. (Available from Boots and Superdrug, £3.99)
