Outgoing: my beloved Fig Clarins Hand Cream, sadly only available in a small size as a Limited Edition in a three pack with other flavours. Please, please, please, Clarins, make this in full size. I'm begging. And not above bribery. Help a girl out.

Back to Clarins: Ok I don't know what is in this, and I'm actually hiding this one from the teenager and keeping it for myself. The list is available online but I'm avoiding it. What I do know is that it is extremely limited and £95.00. Again, it sold out insanely quickly last year. Available now from Clarins.com.
Ciate Mini Mani Month is available now from ASOS at £50.00 and contains polishes, files and base and top coats. asos.com
And rounding up the new with a nod to the established. Bobbi Brown is 25 years old this year and there are numerous limited products released to celebrate, including this gorgeous 40-pan Dare to Shine Palette available now at £145.00. At the moment it's showing as sold out on Selfridges.com - but keep an eye. It's gone from Bobbibrown.com. Sorry.
Thank you so much to everyone that came to Stylist Live last week - it was so lovely to meet you all.
