There's never a better time to clear out the medicine cabinet than the start of spring, and now you can replenish it with everything from skin-enhancing make-up to whitening and brightening treatments.

Available in nine shades, Benefit's new Hello Flawless brightening make-up offers SPF 25 protection in a light, oil-free formula.

To add a sheer wash of colour, try Clinique's Almost Spring line of lip colours, cream-to-powder blush and feathery Lash Power Mascara.

For a bit more shimmer, Bobbi Brown has introduced four new shades of Sparkle Eye Shadow as part of its Brightening Nudes Collection. Silver Moon, Ballet, Mica and Sunlight come in a creamy and long-lasting powder.

On the skincare front, La Mer Whitening Lotion Intense has been enhanced with the brand's signature Miracle Broth to moisturise and soothe redness while Domohorn Wrinkle's Vital White Essence aims to repair the skin's DNA and control melanin production.

Guerlain's Whitening Essence also targets dark spots with a concentrated formula.

La Prairie's Cellular Power Charge Night builds on last year's Cellular Power Infusion with the addition of retinol and oxygen to revitalise skin overnight.

The micronised Regenessence High Lift cream from Giorgio Armani offers rich nourishment in an extremely fine emulsion.
