Too many good things to feature this week, so we’ve squeezed them all into one shot and there’s a bit of sea theme going on…
Here’s the weekend line-up, from Left to Right:
Ocean Handmade Glycerine, Kelp & Sea Salt Soap by Royston & Hayes – clear swimming pool blue, almost too pretty to use, smells natural and very “clean” – one of our new finds
Fresh Ocean Shower Gel (Lemon, Rosemary & Lime) by Organic Surge – at around £4/250ml, an absolute steal
Relax Toner Spritz by Nourish – lovely Lavender, cooling and calming and we like the moisturiser a lot too (not shown)
Ancienne Ambiance Assyria Orange Blossom Candle & Room Spray – longest-burning candles we’ve ever found. VOGUE loves them, so do we. AncienneAmbiance.com
Lemon Bath Oil by Dr Hauschka – Trial size. Love this! It’s like having a bath in an Italian lemon grove and incredibly uplifting.
Papaya Enzyme Peel by Elemis – Papaya, pineapple and marine algae all packed into Elemis’s limited edition award-winning peel
New! Larger Than Life Lip Glosses by NARS – Brilliant shine, intense colour and they’re volumising!
Wildwood Groves Lavender Argan Oil – ultra pure and Sophie Dahl is a fan (this organic oil smells divine and is supremely delicate) – and the little purple and silver bowl is from a ceramics co-operative in Rabat, Morocco
Sea Mist Spray with Lavender for Hair by John Masters Organics – spray on to hair after shampooing & conditioning for extra style and volume, while lavender oil helps keep hair hydrated (but it feels oil-free)
Apostle Skin-Brightening & Tone-Correcting Serum by Antipodes – brightens the complexion in 5 days in tests and this is a really interesting formula! Kiwi, red grape extract, mamaku black fern, Reishi mushroom help minimise facial redness and boost cell renewal. Organic. (And very different).
Quinoa Daily Hydrating Moisturiser – we can’t even begin to list the ingredients here – they’re amazing! Cowshed‘s definitely a “Best of British” beauty brand and if you’ve never tried it and are tempted, here’s their Starter Kit (Oh OK then, quinoa, shea, cocoa, soya, Vitamin E, aloe vera, ylang ylang, rose, raspberry, clary sage, geranium, chamomile…)
