The 10 Best morning-after products

1. Diorshow, £23, Christian Dior, available nationwide
Blue mascara might seem retro for a time all about looking forward but it will make eyes appear whiter and brighter in a nifty optical illusion.
2. Clarifying detox shampoo, £10.50, Phyto, johnlewis.com
Wash last year out of your hair – and any styling products that helped you get the look last night – with this clarifying shampoo, containing eucalyptus essential oil, from Phyto.
3. GinZing eye cream, £21, origins, boots.com
This uses ginseng and magnolia extracts to tackle the tell-tale signs of fatigue such as dark circles and under-eye bags. A delicate iridescence reflects light off dulled skin.
4. Aroma Cleanse Essential cleansing milk, £20, decleor, decleor.co.uk
Remove even stubborn waterproof eye make-up with this gentle sweet almond oil-based cleanser that won't sting or irritate sensitive eyes.
4. Aroma Cleanse Essential cleansing milk, £20, decleor, decleor.co.uk
Remove even stubborn waterproof eye make-up with this gentle sweet almond oil-based cleanser that won't sting or irritate sensitive eyes.
6. Caffeine under-eye roll-on, £10.20, Garnier, available nationwide
This clear cooling, soothing product can be applied in the morning and then topped up over make-up as tiredness sets in throughout the day.
7. Facial cleansing wipes, £3.05, Nivea, available nationwide
If you started the year with the remains of last night's make-up, a swipe of these freshly scented wipes imbued with Moroccan argan oil will help.
8. Beauty Flash Balm, £28, Clarins, available nationwide
This tried and tested formula is best applied just before make-up to plump, brighten and tighten the skin on the face, neck and décolletage.
9. Energizing foaming exfoliant, £68, Sisley, johnlewis.com
Essential oils of lavender and rosemary will revive the senses in a more relaxing way than caffeine. Massaging the micro-beads into wet skin surely counts as calorie-burning activity.
10. Dynaspot, £22, Eve Lom, evelom.com
Thanks to tea tree oil, salycic acid, fennel and chamomile this paste-like product is great for drying out spots and blemishes and far more effective than toothpaste.

Been burning the candle at both ends? Here are the products that will leave you feeling fresh for the new year.
