Liz Earle – Cleanse &Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

This cleanser goes on to dry skin and is removed with a hot cotton cloth. It removes daily grime and makeup, and lifts away dead skin cells as the hot cloth has a light exfoliating action. A mini facial in a bottle which you can use every evening at home, the results are balanced, healthy and nourished skin. Suitable for all skin types and cruelty-free.

Kerstin Florian - Rehydrating Neroli Water

A beautifully fragranced aromatherapy water with Neroli and bitter orange blossom which doubles up as a toner and midday pick-me-up. It can even be spritzed over makeup for a natural way to hydrate, refresh and rebalance the skin throughout the day.

Ila - Body Scrub for a Blissful Experience – Beyond Organic

This is way more than just a body scrub. The perfect pick me up for when you’re feeling run down or sluggish, this nourishing body scrub uses Himalayan salts to gently remove dead skin and envelops your skin in a film of purity. It contains argan oil in a balm form which is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants. Rose geranium also works to balance mind and body. A real hero product, it's good for all skin types including people who suffer from eczema or psoriasis.

Burt’s Bees – Pomegranate Lip Balm

At times it can be challenging to keep our skin hydrated and nourished. Lips in particular can suffer from our over use of air conditioning and constant applications of lipstick. Another secret weapon to use throughout the day: the pomegranate lip balm by Burt’s Bees. It soothes and nourishes your lips with a very light tint that looks like a light lipstick.

Dr Rakus – Dr Rakus Protect: Sun Protection SPF 50

One of the most vital ways to prevent ageing skin is through protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. This SPF 50 by Dr Rakus is a light weight day cream which is clinically proven to protect your skin against the suns rays. Easily absorbed and contains a mineral makeup tint, perfect to wear under makeup or alone as a regular moisturiser when needed.

Dr Levy - Eye Booster Concentrate

Also known as the best thing since Botox, Dr Levy multi-award winning products use stem cell technology to revitalise the dermal stem cells, which create essential collagen for smoother, firmer and stronger skin. The eye serum is my particular favourite from the Dr Levy range and part of my daily routine - it’s specifically designed to help with puffiness, crepey-ness, diminish dark circles and reduce fine lines. It opens your eyes to appear more refreshed, so you’re always looking fresh and bright.
