1. A Le Labo Perfume

If you haven’t already heard of this cooler than cool bespoke fragrance label, straight out of the trendy Nolita district in New York then listen up. Specialising in personal, home and body fragrance Le Labo doesn’t make the rules, it breaks them. At the essence of their manifesto is the concept that fine perfumery must create a shock – the shock of the new, combined with the shock of the intimately familiar.

If you need a new fragrance for spring, Le Labo have you sorted. If you are looking for a new take on a traditional floral try the luxuriously scented LYS 41. This deep scent infuses a blend of jasmine, tuberose and lily, deliciously blended with hints of noble woods, vanilla madagascar and musks. For something a little stronger, give Santal 33 a try. This heady scent smells leathery and smokey at the same time. A fragrance not for the faint-hearted.

The packaging can be personalised with a message which makes it the perfect gift for a loved one (or yourself!).

2. Diptyque Multi-Use Exfoliating Clay

If your bathroom is full of beauty products, then this Diptyque Multi-use Exfoliating Clay is the perfect product for you. You can gently massage it into your skin as a scrub to exfoliate dead skin cells. You can also use it as a mask to encourage cell regeneration. Ingredients including apricot kernel oil, vitamins and trace minerals, all act to revitalise tired skin.

3. Mecca Nail Care Collection

I’m definitely a sucker a beautiful packaging so when I saw the Mecca Cosmetica Signature Line Nail products in all their glossy black glory, I knew I had to have them! Not only will they look good in your bathroom, but as someone who rarely has bare nails, the Repair Nail Strengthener is a godsend for those wanting to repair, treat and strengthen damaged nails, and the Prime Smoothing Base Coat and Protect Top Coat will help you achieve a professional finish and a longer lasting manicure. Not to mention, the unique double brush design makes application a breeze.

4. Eve Lom Flawless Radiance Primer

Really, I could have added anything in the Eve Lom Complexion Range to this list but I tried to limit it to just two. The new Flawless Radiance Primer from the new Complexion Range is designed to not only keep your makeup looking perfect all day long, but it works hard to ensure your skin is hydrated, nourished and protected from free-radicals and UV damage. What more could you want?


5. Eve Lom Radiance Perfect Tinted Moisturiser

When I’m looking for a makeup product for my skin, I want it to give me good coverage, but not make it look like I’m wearing makeup. Fussy I know! While it’s sometimes hard to find a formula I’m happy with, Eve Lom’s Radiance Perfect Tinted Moisturiser ticks both of those boxes. Going on like a smooth moisturiser, the powerful formula offers deep hydration, while giving your skin a natural glow. It offers just the right amount of coverage to smooth out your skin, but not giving you a thick, un-natural look. Like the rest of the Eve Lom Complexion range, the Tinted Moisturiser is designed to enhance your natural glow and celebrate your skin’s luminosity.
