What do Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid all have in common?

They all use a ring light to achieve their flawless selfies.

After a year spent on Zoom, we've come to realise that good lighting does more for our on-screen appearance than any amount of make-up, and searches for 'ring light for laptop' are up a whopping 171%.

The good news is: you can nab yourself one for just £12 on Amazon as it's currently a Lightening Deal with 17% off today (19 April). You'll have to be quick though as the deal is already 29% claimed - and as soon as the supply is gone, that's it, deal over.

The ring light is also currently a bestseller on the website and it's not hard to see why.

Why we rate it:

The LED Ring Light with Tripod Stand & Phone Holder can help out whenever you need extra light for applying make-up, taking photos, making videos, reading books or live streaming.

It boasts three different lighting modes: white, warm yellow and warm white, each with adjustable brightness, so you can fine tune it to your needs. 

The attached phone clip suits most models and the USB ports can be used to connect it to your laptop or computer with ease. 

What the reviews say:

With over 20,000 reviews and thousands of five star ratings, it's hard to think of a reason not to add it to your basket.

  • "Work from home saviour. This is one of the best 'work from home' purchases I’ve made. Does an excellent job of removing shadows from your face and brightening up the entire video."

  • "I bought this to use during my work Zoom meetings and it’s great! The lighting is adjustable and I get a ton of compliments. Perfect for pretty much anyone and definitely a must-have when working from home and trying to get the perfect light."

  • "Bought this since I am working from home and do a lot of video calls. My office has poor lighting at night and this has been great for end of the day meetings. You can adjust the colour of the light and brightness so it doesn't blind you. Great buy!"

  • "I was looking for a simple ring light for working from home... I spend multiple hours a day in VC meetings. This is a great light for the price and does exactly what I need it to. You can combine the attachments together in different ways that allows for more bend/height/flexibility."

  • "Wow this light is amazing. Bought as doing a lot of Zoom meetings and... I wanted more light. It’s great for brightening the image up but also like having a permanent filter on! I’m so pleased."
