Berries are bursting with good-for you nutrients and they can do wonders for your skin, too.

Beauty editor Kim Jones has rounded up some favourite berry-filled beauty products and picked out rich berry shades of lipsticks and nail polish to warm up winter days and nights, too.

Molton Brown Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine Fine Liquid Hand Wash

Molton Brown Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine Fine Liquid Hand Wash

£18 and Hand Lotion, £20, www.moltonbrown.co.uk
Molton Brown’s festive limited edition collection – Fabled Juniper Berries & Lapp Pine captures the scent of a snowy Christmas with pine extract from remote polar forests and crisp juniper berries. The regal hand wash and lotion are both adorned with delicate jingling blue bells. How sweet is that?

Liz Earle Botanical Essence No.9, Eau De Parfum

Liz Earle Botanical Essence No.9, Eau De Parfum
£49, www.uk.lizearle.com
Liz Earle’s latest lovely fragrance is heady with the scent of dark forest fruits like juicy blackcurrant mixed with woody oakmoss. It’s said to take the wearer on an olfactive journey to the fragrant heart of a warm forest floor moments after a rainstorm – as the clouds part and the sun warms the landscape. Prettily packaged in purple, it leaves a warm, sensual scent on the skin, making it perfect for winter days and nights.
The Comforter Bubble Bar

The Comforter Bubble Bar

£4.95, https://uk.lush.com/
This luscious bubble bar from Lush crumbles into your bath and turns the water a pretty shade of purpley-pink. It fills the bathroom with a delicious scent of blackcurrant cassis. Fruity, but creamy too. And you come out of the bath not only clean, but with silky skin thanks to the mixed with bergamot and cypress oils it contains. No wonder it’s called The Comforter. It says there’s enough for two baths in the bar – but we squeezed four out of ours easily.

Crabtree & Evelyn Windsor Forest Porcelain Diffuser

Crabtree & Evelyn Windsor Forest Porcelain Diffuser
£45, www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk
We’re more than a little in love with this beautiful little birdie diffuser. Made from porcelain, it draws in the perfumed oil and scents your room with a festive evergreen Windsor Forest fragrance – crisp and reminiscent of Christmas trees with fir needles, spruce and pine notes as well as holly and juniper berries. A gorgeous gift, it’s part of a Windsor Forest range which also includes a candle.
Lip-Luscious Berry Shades

Lip-Luscious Berry Shades

Winter is definitely the time to deepen your shade of lippie – and we love the rich berry shades out there that really let your lips do the talking. Berry shades range from reds with maroon undertones to deep plum and mahogany hues, so experiment to find what suits your skintone best. A pretty purse-friendly option to try is GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Cranberry £6.99, Superdrug. And for really strong pigment pay-off, Urban Decay’s Vice range of lipsticks in cream or comfort matte finishes are wickedly wonderful. Try shades ‘Rock Steady’ and – if you’re feeling really daring ‘Disturbed’ - £15 from www.urbandecay.co.uk

Nail The Berry Tones

Time to file away your summer bright nail polishes and dip into a darker berry shade. Choose warm, plum-like shades on fair skin and deeper, darker berry tones on olive and dark skins. We love the darkly glossy Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Nail Colour in Black Perfecto (it’s actually a rich plum-berry shade), £15.30 and Givenchy Le Vernis Satiny Shine Nail Colour in Rose Satin, a deep raspberry shade, £8.25, both from www.escentual.com
