Pick-me-up products to bring a boost to your day.
Put a spring in your step with these mood-boosting beauty heroes.
Spritz Jo Malone London’s first pillow mist – a blend of sleepy lavender and musk – on your pillow to help you unwind and drift off to sleep.
Perfectly pink, inscribed with a T. S. Eliot quote (“genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood”), a woody, citrusy, calming scent, a rich, hydrating formula and soon to be the most beautiful item on your vanity. Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, €25.20, couldn’t be improved upon in any way.
Meet Glossier’s most underrated product – a calming face mist that smells like roses. Keep it beside your makeshift workspace/ ironing board for a hydrating, energizing pick-me-up.
Having now used each product in the Dermalogica Body Collection, I can assure you that each one is like having a tiny meditation. If “washing off the day” is your thing, this is how it’s done – the eucalyptus and lavender in the Conditioning Body Wash makes you release tension in your whole body. Massage the Phyto Replenish Body Oil, €58, in at night to soothe, calm and nourish the skin and the soul. Slough off your dead skin and your bad mood with the Thermafoliant Body Scrub, €47.50, with an energizing scent that’ll really wake you up in the morning, and calm yourself and watch your stress dissipate with the lavender and patchouli-scented Body Cream, €35. Showers will never be the same.
Had I the ability, I would like to write lengthy, romantic poetry to Emma Hardie’s Moringa Cleansing Balm. It melts your make-up with minimum effort, leaving the skin balanced, radiant and smooth. The head-on-collision scent of a blend of orange, neroli, mandarin, jasmine and rose essential oils will make you actually want to wash your face.
Everything created by Neom Organics is designed to make you feel better, but the new Bedtime Hero Magnesium Body Butter, €41, goes one step further and also helps you sleep better. Shea butter, aloe vera, coconut oil and grapeseed oil leave you with super soft hydrated skin, eleven essential oils leave you feeling soothed while magnesium works on pain, muscles cramps and helps promote better sleep.
