So this product is the most expensive, retailing at £40, yet it will be sure to last you a very long time! The serum is a nutrient-rich combination of botanical oils that aim to improve the elasticity of the skin and protect it against premature ageing.

These are in my opinion, the best face masks on the market. Oh K! is a Japanese make, the clay mask is ideal for those who want a detoxifying and cleansing experience. The bubble mask is quite a fun product as it has O2 bubbling action, which formulates after 10 minutes of applying. The bubbling helps to lift dirt and dead skin cells leaving your skin soft!
Patchology is my go-to Face Masks for all travel. The face masks do not contain too much liquid so they are not messy and ideal to slip into your hand luggage carry on (in a clear container of course!). The lip treatment is perfect for a pamper nights as it provides deep hydration, quick moisture, and soften your pout. The eye masks are my absolute favourite as they actually lift tired eyes and can transform your circles into a fresh 8-hour sleep you! Plus they are very cooling which can help aid anxiety.
It is always quite difficult to explain the scent of something but I have researched into the ingredients of this perfume and really want to try to convey the beautifully unique scent. The top notes are pink peppercorn and geranium of Egypt. The heart notes are tuberose of India, ylang-ylang of Comoros, sambac jasmine, iris and jasmine of Egypt. The base notes are cashmeran, sandalwood, incense of Somalia, vanilla of Madagascar, patchouli of Singapour and benzoin of Sumatra cypress. Buying a smaller sample can sometimes be the best thing to do when purchasing perfumes before fully committing.
One of the best products for travel on the market as it does everything, even including removing makeup! The 2 in 1 no-rinse treatment deeply cleanses as it gently exfoliates and conditions. It leaves the skin plumped, more youthful-looking, giving you a softer complexion and it simultaneously unclogs pores from deep within.
How to use
- Saturate cotton pad and apply all over the face
