Byredo, Gypsy Water

Forever our favourite scent. A beautiful blend of sandalwood, pine needle and lemon scents. An earthy aroma reminiscent of the great outdoors and exploration. A super spring scent that evokes freedom and a deeper connection to the world around us. There’s never been a better time for a spritz of Gypsy Water goodness.

Pampering with >>

The Ordinary

The Ordinary is about ‘stripping back’ and getting down to the basics – a refreshingly cool concept we’re buying into this spring. Expect high-performance products and ‘clinical formulations with integrity’. We’re loving the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution – boosting radiance and clarity, and the Caffeine Solution 5% – for waking up sleep-deprived eyes.
