You'd be forgiven in thinking: "Why don’t they just make this in a bigger size?" Well, now your prayers have been answered! Some of the beauty industrys best-love products now come in larger bottles and tubs, and what’s more, they often cost far less than their quantities suggest. From large hair products to massive tubs of face cream to extra-large toners, the biggest beauty buys often come with pumps so you can get more for your money. We have rounded up the best cult products made XXL. You know what they say – go big or go home…

Hands up who loves Philip Kingsley's iconic Elasticizer? That will be most of us then! The pre-shampooing mask formula - which is an amazing treatment for gals with damaged locks – has had a revamp. Now available in a new scent, Pomegranate Cassis, from 1 September,  you can now buy it in an enormous one litre bottle and we really don't think you will ever reach the bottom. Priced at £62 its amazing value as 150ml is £32.00, meaning you get five times as much for just an extra £30.00. 

Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm 200g Supersize, £68, Elemis

Our favourite cleanser – the Elemis Pro-Collagen Balm - can now be purchased in a mega 200g size that is double the normal quantity of 100g. We know it will last you forever as you only need the tiniest amount to dissolve all your makeup.  Best of all, it's turned pink for in support of Breast Cancer Care and is packaged beautifully with a rose-embossed tub. Its limited edition, so catch it while you can!

Bye Bye Undereye by It Cosmetics, £37.50, qvcuk.com

Bye Bye Undereye by It cosmetics has been hailed as one of the best concealers around due to its full coverage properties and highly pigmented formula. It comes with a brush and a miniscule dot of product is all you need to cover the severest of bags. QVC now stocks a tube which is an impressive 30ml - four times the size of its 8g counterpart.

Shampoo & Conditioners 500ml, £20 each, Percyandreed.com for the whole of September

We love Percy & Reed products. From the cuter-than cute illustration on the packaging to the first-rate moisturising formulas, they are a must in our haircare cabinet. From 1 September, you can buy the brand's Volume, Moisture & Shine Shampoo & Conditioners in huge 500ml bottles. What’s more, as an introductory offer, they will be available for £20 each for the whole of September. That's only £4 more than the regular 250ml bottles – and double the product.

Always running out of perfume? Trust us, once you have Roger & Gallet's 500ml fragrance on your dressing table, you will never run short again. The beautiful bottle will last you forever. Containing essences of black tea to promote a sense of calm and tranquillity mixed with cardamom, coriander and vetiver, this soothing scent is perfect for the evening.

Glow Tonic, 250ml, £18, Pixi

Pixi's Glow tonic is the epitome of a cult classic. The toner has a key ingredient of glycolic acid which helps gently resurface the skin whilst still keeping your face refreshed and supple. The regular 100ml bottle comes in at £10 but you get far more for your money with the 250ml bottle, which costs just £8 more. As you only need to apply the teeniest of amounts to your face after cleansing, it will certainly last you a fair few months.

Pomegranate Noir four-wick candle, £300 Jo Malone

When you want to gift someone an incredible candle, Jo Malone will be at the top of your list. The luxury wax last for ages and the sumptuous scents are known to fill your entire room. Yes, it's a bit of an indulgent one - the four wick 2500g offering may set you back £300, but it has a burn time of a whopping 220 hours and would make the most generous ( and not to mention stunning) gift.
