5 OF THE BEST PAMPERING PICKS
By Katie McKain, March 24, 2020
Vive la cleanse
Nothing taxing or techy about this one from French stalwart Caudalie – just a good honest cleansing milk and the best place to start for removing makeup, dirt and grease. This one will do all that without stripping away any natural oils, and as an added bonus, it contains lemon leaf, bergamot, lavender and sandalwood, for authentic spa smells – just close your eyes and you're there.
Roll with it
Admit it, you’ve always wanted one of these. Well now’s the time to try it out – just don’t forget to stick it in the fridge for a bit first to get the full benefits of the cooling, de-puffing, smoothing and all-round de-stressing effects of a crystal facial roller. It can even help with tension headaches and sinus issues, so it’s a proper winner in our book.
Spill the tea
Superfood Kefir-Tea Mist. Wow, just reading that feels like you're doing something nourishing for your skin. Perfect for unwinding from reality, this mist from supercharged skincare faves Elemis promises to hydrate, soothe and protect (all key words atm). Packed with probiotics, vitamins and minerals, it works to strengthen and balance its defences. Cue slow-mo insta stories of you spritzing it like you’re in one of those ultra-glam ads.
When you can’t decide whether to slather peptides, acids or vitamins on your skin, The Ordinary’s Buffet serum literally does it all. It’s designed to target loads of different signs of ageing, as well as repair, even out and boost the complexion. It’s a great entry product into the world of The Ordinary’s high-tech range, too.
Patch me in
A K-beauty classic, these babies do all the work while you sleep, literally smoothing out all the creases caused by peering at a screen all day long. Frown lines, laughter lines and those folds at the sides of your smile – you’ll be amazed at the difference eight hours can make while these avocado- and pineapple-infused patches get to work.
