Love Cosmetics Palette – The Natural One, £19.99



This stunning eyeshadow palette combines all the creamy glitters and smokey mattes required to create a standout shadow look that’s perfect for the festive season.
Don’t be fooled by the minimal packaging as this sultry palette comes in shades inspired by the Autumn foliage and blends like a dream.

Available in 14 shades, the infinite colour delivers a perfect matte finish that doesn’t feel drying.

Our favourite is Highway To Hell, a cool-toned berry red that’s perfect for the vampy new season.


Flower by Kenzo L’Absolue, £52




Capturing the poppy’s strength and fragility in a new intensity, this new eau de parfum explores the heart of the flower in a sensual fragrance.
Powerful in its very essence, the master perfumer depicts a spicy and sophisticated facet of the poppy signed by the most precious pistil: the red gold, the frisson of a warm breath on skin, and the freshness of mandarin essence warmed by a saffron infusion.
Its surge of Damask rose, orange blossom and tuberose heart, reddened by spice, results in an exotic but feminine fragrance that lingers all day long.


Christophe Robin Night Recovery Cream for Hair, £35



Rich and soothing, this powerful formulation works overnight to restore hair strength from within, so dry, weakened lengths feel fortified and more resilient to daily damage.
White Lotus Flower, traditionally used for its sensorial soothing properties, combines with bond optimisers and wheat glycoproteins, so split ends appear smoothed and hair is less prone to breakage.
African Hibiscus Flower enhances shine, while French Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils help you to relax and unwind while deeply nourishing strands.
After using, hair feels restored, beautifully supple and full of bounce.


Messiah and Eve Bath Emulsion, £26




Nothing quite beats a luxurious soak during the dark nights of winter.
Tune into a relaxing moment any day of the week with this skin softening, aromatic bath emulsion, which combines premium skincare ingredients and a bespoke fine fragrance blend, for a full body sensorial experience.
Tiny droplets of replenishing oils disperse throughout the water to blanket your whole body in a luxurious, replenishing, soothing and skin softening soak.
Simply pop a few drops of the emulsion with its calming, aromatic notes under running water to escape to a sunshine filled, spring-time dream.



Ciaté London Extraordinary Foundation, £28





This versatile, buildable foundation can be buffed into the skin for sheer finish, applied just where needed or layered all for a fuller coverage.
Botanical extracts such as Mimosa and Arctic Rose help to instantly lift and energise skin leaving it feeling soft and radiant, plus hydrating hyaluronic acid, hydrating squalene, and oil-controlling bamboo extract help skin to feel nourished too.
Arriving in a tube that’s 66 per cent larger than the average foundation size, this one’s for the long haul and easy to fit in your handbag.
Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, it can also be worn up to 16 hours without breaking out the skin – making it perfect for party season.



Athletia Treatment Cleansing Cream, £42




A truly sensorial experience, this treatment cleansing cream brings a moment of massage into skincare regimes.
Combining a rich and hydrating cocktail of ingredients, this cream melts smoothly on contact with the skin before turning into a luxurious oil-like texture.
Spreading effortlessly to capture and remove makeup and dirt, the formula lavishly moisturises and softens. After washing, skin is clean and fresh.

For blissfully soft skin that’s saved from harsh winter climates, this body oil spray leaves skin feeling silky smooth, without feeling greasy.
With 98 per cent naturally derived ingredients, including oat and jojoba oil, the oil spray is clinically proven to intensely moisturise dry, sensitive skin helping to improve elasticity and uneven texture.
The fast-absorbing formula soothes and replenishes skin from its very first application, leaving you with an unparalleled glow.
It also absorbs quickly, making it perfect getting pins looking party ready.
