It’s a matte foundation, it’s a highlighter… it’s a 2-in-1 tool! On one end you’ll get to “blur” your complexion for a filter-like effect, and on the other, illuminate your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and anywhere that needs a little shine. The duo-stick comes in 10 shades.

Diptyque scents are so calming, and this new one is no different. Constructed around woody notes that give it a velvety base, the fragrance is enriched with whiffs of Madagascar vanilla, almond, and pink peppercorns.

Your skin does some of its best work at night, when it gets the chance to breathe without makeup and push out old cells. This sleep mask is powered by a Biotic Balancing Complex to balance the skin’s naturally occurring flora, whilst restoring hydration. In short: you woke up like this.

It’s a tough call when it comes to body lotions vs body oils, but this oil is a sure winner. With magnesium-rich kelp and Omega 9, it nourishes, restores elasticity and softness, and locks in moisture for hours on end.

Alcohol free and antioxidant-rich, the second step to your AM and PM skincare regime helps to reduce oil and shine without over-drying the skin. It even helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce blackheads and clear pores.

This lightweight, oil free instant absorbing serum is your skin’s defence against air pollution and UVB/UVA rays that wreck havoc on your complexion. It targets free radicals, as well as carbon and nitrogen free radicals (things you don’t want in your skin).

Speaking of pollution, as well as oil and gunk, this shampoo does wonders to refresh the scalp. It contains rosemary oil, menthol, salicylic acid and ginger to rid the scalp of itchiness and excess oil, while leaving moisture behind.
