The team unzips its collective make-up bag and share its top beauty buys for March.

Is there much more enlightening, or indeed acquisitive-making, than snooping inside other people’s make-up bags (just us?)? Happy news then: there’s no need for furtive peeping when it comes to glimpsing inside the collective GWG bathroom cabinet. Since we’re the sharing types, this month the editorial team will reveal our beauty cabinet heroes and new best buys – from skincare must-haves to make-up saviours. Check out our top buys for February here:

The Ordinary, 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

In the months of heating whacked up to the max, this oil has been saving my dry skin all winter.

The Ordinary, Coverage Foundation

Another vote for The Ordinary. I've always hated thick foundations - and prefer not to wear it at all when I can. But through winter, when something's got to give and I just need a boost, this light number is ideal.

Arabella Dymoke, Managing Director

Plant Me Botanics, Hydration Recovery

This is expensive but you only need to use a tiny amount on dry patches so it lasts and does the job.

Beauty Pie, Oxygen Instant Facial Refuelling Mask

Beauty Pie's newsletters are always a good reminder as to why I'm a member. Being able to buy fab products at amazing prices is almost too good to be true. And this mask is one of them.

Lydia Mansi, Lifestyle Editor

All-in-one milk, Davines

Ethical and sustainable haircare brand, Davines’ all-in-one milk does as the name suggests. A spritz on wet locks before drying banishes frizz, gives a bit of oomph and crucially, doesn’t make my hair feel weighed down or greasy. It’s magic (and smells divine too).

HealGel, HealGel Intensive

Perhaps not the most glamorous of recommendation, but if you’ve been through surgery, this is a skin-changer. Formulated by some of the UK’s leading plastic surgeons, it helps soothe, heal and regenerate skin tissue. Even if you’re not looking to improve the appearance of scarring, it’s great on burns, rashes and blemishes too.

Anna Bance, Contributing Editor

Tata Harper, Illuminating Moisturizer

One of my favourite moisturisers, this hydrating spray is made with all-natural products, smells amazing and I use it both in the morning under make-up and at night.

Disciple, Miracle CBD Drops

I have been buying this in both the 2.5 per cent and 5 per cent for about a year. Each bottle lasts a long time and the pipette makes it easy to either drop into drinks, under the tongue or directly onto skin.

Becky Ladenburg, Features Editor

Charlotte Tilbury, Brow Lift

As I get older, my eyebrows are thinning and need all the help they can get. With its three clever elements, Brow Lift is the answer.

Aromatherapy Associates, Forest Therapy

A friend bought me this little bottle of joy for my birthday, and it has made every bath since an unimaginable pleasure.

Lucy Abletshauser, Shopping Editor

Bioderma, Sensibio H20 make-up removing solution

This stuff works wonders - removes all makeup (including waterproof mascara!) and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.

Rodial, Dragon’s Blood Night Cream

I received this for Christmas and it is amazing. Not only does it smell delicious, it makes me skin feel super soft and hydrated.
