Things that make you go (sp)aaah!
Therapie Himalayan Detox Bath Salts – No words for these other than “magical”. If you have problems sleeping, have been stressed, anxious or just need a really good night’s sleep top aromatherapist Michelle Roques-O’Neil’s beautiful award-winning salts will untangle any scrambled energy. Best used at weekends at they are seriously relaxing. Contains: Himalayan Salts, Geranium, Rosewood, patchouli, Lavender, Juniper berry, Lemongrass, Grapefruit and – yes – powdered Amethyst. Enough for 3-4 baths. Grab while you can as these keep selling out. £10 at www.roquesoneil.com
ABAHNA LONDON Lilac Rose & Geranium Travel Candle £10. Much bigger than in the pic, and fabulous if you like a “British summer garden” scent, this oh-so-pretty travel candle smells as good as it looks.
Re-use the frosted holder which is flecked in gold to vamp up your tealights when the deliciously scented wax has melted. Rather lovely and very British, Abahna’s candles are 100% natural soy with essential oils and made in England. If you love the scent of summer in the Med, try their Mandarin & Sicilian Bergamot range – they also have a new Vetiver & Cedarwood collection which is out in time for Christmas. Abahna.co.uk
PRITI NYC’s Soy Polish Nail Remover – OK not tres Christmassy we admit – but very handy to have around 365 days a year if you’re not keen on acetone polish removers. Soy is not just for smoothies and this natural formula does work. £10 at CONTENT
WELEDA SKINFOOD CHRISTMAS CRACKER – Technically not the most perfectly formed item for a Christmas Stocking but we didn’t say these were all stocking fillers (or did we…late night?!) But technically very Christmassy. Skin Food is one of Weleda’s multi-tasking icons, often spotted backstage during catwalk shows and for £5.95 (you get a 30ml tube) this officially classifies as a Christmas beauty steal. Nice to see Weleda’s crackers back again this year but if you want one, get one, as these sell out fast. At CONTENT
ARRAN AROMATICS FEEL GOOD MASSAGE BAR WITH GRAPEFRUIT & SHEA BUTTER – possibly the best £3.50 you’ll ever spend, it’s moisturising, smells gorgeous and the massage bar is “ridged” – read the reviews at Bath & Unwind, this 125g bar has a whole legion of fans!
LOLLIA IN LOVE SHEA BUTTER HANDCREME – You don’t have to be in love to love Lollia’s In Love hand cream – how gorgeous is the packaging for a start? An easy breezy blend of apple blossom, jasmine and rose in a base of macadamia, avocado oil and shea butter, this glides onto skin and sinks in. £7.95/29.6ml (to be precise!)
KORRES CITRUS FRESH SHOWER GEL – Crisp yet quite “deep” and very (very) refreshing, Greek brand Korres gets a 10 for this utterly gorgeous shower gel! You get 50ml (nice travel size) for £2.70. At BATH & UNWIND (The Basil & Lemon one is a good one too!)
