Here’s the 60-second lowdown on three of the most exciting beauty brands around (I think), for a brand new season.
The Illuminating Botanical Serum-Mist
AMLY BOTANICALS SILVER RICH RADIANCE FACE MIST
Silver-rich water from Amly’s Sussex herb meadows, twenty 100% pure botanicals, copper peptides and skin-plumping, fresh-face transforming hyaluronic acid are all what make Amly’s illuminating face mist more of a luxurious serum-mist, technically. You have to try it to appreciate the aromatherapeutic effects – heaven!
Spritz away to your heart’s content – your skin will thank you for this new beauty gamechanger.

The Early Morning Energiser
THERAPIE BOOST HAIR & BODY WASH
If you tend to drag yourself to the shower by Friday mornings, meet the luxe aromatherapeutic body wash you’ll wish you’d known about before now. Legendary aromatherapist Michelle Roques-O’Neil has packed eucalyptus, rosemary, sweet lemony may chang, spearmint, blood orange and more into this delicious fatigue-fighting wake-up wash.
There’s a mini 50ml size too for £10 so you can try before you buy – or fly.
The Cashmere Throw..For Your Face
MICHELINE ARCIER CHARME FACE CREAM
Micheline Arcier trained the founders of Aromatherapy Associates among many others, she is an absolute legend in this field.
Her legacy lives on through this delightful brand – no vague flowery scents here, the products are potent…start off with a bath oil or the Sleep Gift Set of Therapeutic Infusions, three different mini bottles, each one designed to calm, rebalance and soothe you to sleep. The blends are Sommeil, Harmonie and Lavande and you just need a drop on a muslin cloth or tissue by your bed to inhale, help you drift off. Leave a tissue in the bathroom and return half an hour later and you’ll see what I mean. This is aromatherapy at the deepest, most luxe level.
Charme Face Cream is a thick, creamy balm rather than cream, technically: Patchouli, Geranium & Neroli in a base of jojoba and beeswax, it’s heavy and intense and ideal for dried out, sun-damaged skin. It really is rich so if you prefer something light this won’t be for you, but if you adore aromatherapy and thick, luxe balms you’ll be thanking your lucky stars you found this product.
