If you know someone who is obsessed with turning back the hands of time when it comes to dry sensitive skin, then Crabtree & Evelyn has just the present for them! All of Crabtree & Evelyn’s summer gift sets are beautifully draped in different prints and are bound to make ones day. I am in Love with Josey Shenoy’s vintage but very British illustrations made up of glasshouses, flowers, bees, plants and my absolute favourite - afternoon tea (nom nom). Draped in a beige and pink vintage floral tea cup print comes Goat’s Milk Shower Cream and Body Milk. I was of course intrigued by this Egyptian inspired goat milk concoction, milk being Cleopatra's beauty staple.

Expensive creams keep our exterior skin in check but what about the depleting nutrients needed for skin cells to heal and grow? Collagen is the queen of all proteins that keep our skin looking youthful. Those obsessed with anti-ageing lotions, need to actually replenish collagen levels along with specific vitamins, acids and minerals, to delay the signs of telltale ageing. Now, I have tried a few variations of abnormally large collagen capsules that are super hard to swallow, tend to make me feel a bit sick in the stomach and are often found at the bottom of my drawer a few years later. Arriving in the form of liquid vials, LQ Liquid is the first one to make drinkable potions packed with a high-quality fish collagen (i.e. gelatine free) to supplement your skin.

Okay, so I've been LOVING these two products here and thought I had to tell you guys about it. They are not of the same make, texture or formula but in a nutshell, they seem to address a homogeneous problem - a parched complexion.

I often feel we are way past the BB cream trend until another brand launches a new, improved version of it and makes me think, perhaps its trend life is going to be immortal, a bit like skinny jeans. Anyhoo, KIKO has brought out a BB cream, just in time for the muggy season, when we want to give up on make-up and just dunk our skin in ice cold water. They've given us a reason to try out their new base offering, with the attractive SPF 30 element added to it. It feels absolutely refreshing to put on despite the lush, thick formula. The light base adds a subtle layer of coverage to the skin, just enough for the warmer months.

Years of late night chocolate binging and a decade of java addiction later (blame it all on Starbucks!) my teeth finally started showing signs of discoloration. These are stains that even compulsive brushing habits cannot reverse. Here enters the market of high-end dental whitening treatments that most humble Brits seldom splurge on. In my case, I faint at the sight of blood and would rather bungee jump from the Shard than letting the dentist's whirring drill near my tiny mouth.

Lord & Berry have introduced 7 new colours to their range of Kissproof Lipsticks and they are fabulous! Think in the line of Kylie Jenner and Huda Beauty's lip colours but much less heavy on the lips. To me, the formula seems closest to Sephora's Lip Stains. It's lightweight, very comfortable on the lips and quite smooth on application. Like with all stains, I like to work in layers. Don't go crazy with dollops of gooey, high pigment colour at once as you'll only end up in a mess that will need oil based makeup removers to rescue it.
