NEAL’S YARD FRANKINCENSE INTENSE HAND TREATMENT SERUM
Neal’s Yard’s new high-performing serum is clinically-proven to rm and hydrate the delicate, and often dry, skin on our hands. Enriched with restoring ribose, reviving narcissus extract and provitamin A-rich organic rosehip seed oil, the silky-soft serum melts into the skin with no sticky residue, leaving your mitts feeling softer, looking more supple and smelling divine. A handbag and desk drawer must-have.
SISLEŸA HAND CARE ANTI-AGEING CONCENTRATE
Enriched with active youth-boosting ingredients and SPF 30 sun protection, Sisleÿa’s new hand cream is a worthy investment for anyone concerned with ageing hands. Vitamin E and acacia, soy protein and buckwheat extracts work together to boost cell turnover, brightening and plumping the skin over time, as well as helping to prevent dark spots. It’s rich stuff, but it doesn’t leave skin feeling slippy. Slap on a few coats before bed and emerge with velvety mitts!

Available in two 100% natural fragrances.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC AWAY CONCEALER
As the weather begins to (slightly) warm up, we’re starting to swap our heavier foundations for lighter cream formulas and concealers. For good skin days, we love this heavenly concealer wand from makeup legend, Charlotte Tilbury. The non-drying formula sticks around for hours on end, without caking into lines and pores. In fact, it makes skin look more awake and more luminous. Use the nifty cushion applicator to roll over dark circles and imperfections for flawless results in just a few swipes.
