PSA: Molton Brown products in the Lookfantastic sale
Molton Brown is known for its luxury bath and body products – a favourite of ours is the Molton Brown black peppercorn body wash (£22, Lookfantastic.com). So, we were glad to see that Lookfantastic has slashed the price of the brand’s products in its sale – here’s what to buy.
Molton Brown kumudu mulberry volumising conditioner: Was £18, now £9, Lookfantastic.com
This conditioner promises to leave fine hair feeling more voluminous, smoother and softer. The ingredients list is impressive and is said to reduce breakages. While we’ve not tested this one ourselves, it has 4-stars on Lookfantastic, with people claiming that “it’s not too heavy or greasy”.

This fragrance gift set is worth £82 and includes Molton Brown’s signature milk musk eau de toilette, which is a fruity scent, with top notes of pear and peach, as well as the brand’s musk bath and shower gel, which is said to cleanse away impurities and leave your skin smelling like the light floral scent.

Best items in Phase Eight sale
Phase Eight Marcella stitch jumper: Was £69, now £34.50, Phase-eight.com
If the arrival of September has got you thinking about your autumn/winter wardrobe, this chunky knit jumper deserves a spot. With a slightly slouchy and oversized design, it’s an ideal piece for throwing on over just about any outfit, while the pale blue is bound to add a pop of colour. If you’d rather play it safe though, it’s also available in cream. We’d go as far as to suggest this looks far more high end than its £34.50 price tag.
Phase Eight Nora denim culottes: Was £69, now £49, Phase-eight.com
While these culottes might look like something you’d reach for during the warmer months, we think they’re an all year round staple. The cut is formal enough to wear to the office, and we’d recommend pairing it with the above Phase Eight Marcella stitch jumper (was £69, now £34.50, Phase-eight.com) for more casual occasions.

Pay the cheapest price for AirPods and AirPods pro today
Apple AirPods, 2nd gen: Was £159, now £108, Amazon.co.uk
After Apple removed the headphone port from its iPhone devices, the tech giant launched its first wireless earbuds in 2016. These distinctive earphones featured in our review of the best wireless earbuds, with our writer noting that they are “some of the very lightest in-ears you can find”.
“The design is unchanged since day one, but improved electronics inside mean that, like on the pro model, you can say, ‘Hey, Siri’ to invoke the virtual assistant without even touching the earbuds,” they added.
Unlike the AirPods pro, there’s no silicone ear tip nor noise-cancelling technology. “Even so, audio quality is very good, as is call quality, which works even if you only use one earbud,” praised our writer. Of course, these are not cheap, so it pays to get them while they’re on sale.
Apple AirPods pro: Was £249, now £179, Amazon.co.uk
In response to the one-size-doesn’t-fit-all issue with their predecessors, Apple launched this pair of earbuds. Mostly retaining the same design as the OG AirPods, our writer noted they have a “heightened level of finesse” in our in-depth review of the AirPods pro. As high-end earphones go, these are “difficult to find much fault in”, they said.
As for the audio quality, they have a “lovely, warm sound to them, beautifully balanced across the register” and the “adaptive EQ automatically tunes low and mid frequencies to the shape of your ear, which kicks in the longer you listen”.
SUP! This paddle board is reduced in the summer sale
Two Bare Feet all-round XL: Was £910, now £505, Twobarefeet.co.uk
Having featured in our review of the best paddle boards, you can trust it’s a good one. It measures “up at 10ft 10in long and 35in wide, but because it’s shaped more like a touring board it tracks and turns well for its size”, noted our writer.
“The manufacturer has worked hard to keep the weight down at 9.9kg, and it has a good, rigid construction, meaning that the board can really translate the power of your paddle strokes to fast, forward movement over the water,” they added. “Responsive and agile, it also stood up well when we had to deal with the wake of boats and jet skis.”
With a whopping 45 per cent off, if you’re hoping for an Indian summer, then now’s the time to buy.
