FFmag’s beauty expert Melanie Pike tests the latest products to bring you the best for your gym beauty bag. Here are her 6 picks for December.

Toni & Guy Damage Repair Duo

This shampoo and conditioner team is heaven for dry, damaged, over-processed hair. Formulated for hair that needs special attention, the shampoo revitalises and the conditioner deeply nourishes. A must-have this summer. $15.99ea

IME Natural Perfume

Containing no nasties, just natural oils, this range has nine scents inspired by the muses of Greek mythology. We took the flirty Thaleia out on the town — coming on strong and sparkling with bright citrus, fading into a warm, clean and refreshing tone as the night wore on. $69.95

Aromatherapy Associates
De-stress Muscle Gel

Soothe your aching muscles with this non-oily gel. Full of essential oils
it’s designed to release muscle tension and ease the stress of daily life. $56

Lush Ambrosia Shaving Cream

Great for guys (but also for the ladies), slather this moisturising cream all over your face for a smooth shave. Soothing ingredients protect your skin from razor burn and leave your face soft. $10.50

Medik8 Physical Sunscreen

This sheer, lightweight SPF 30 sunscreen glides on easily and absorbs quickly. Ideal for sensitive and blemish-prone skin, it doesn’t irritate like some of the thicker sunscreens on the market. Use it every morning to defend against ageing and help to correct any fine lines that are creeping in. $74


Inika Long Lash Vegan Mascara

This long-wear 100% plant derived mascara is clump free and easy to apply. A single coat is all you need, but go for the wow factor and apply two! $45
