Some New High-End Skincare Discoveries

I tested these three products over the festive season and honestly, I was so impressed: an antioxidant to help protect your skin from the harsh South African sun, a serum to help zap those nasty blemishes which tend to pop up after weeks of indulgence, and an eye cream to help minimise the tell-tale signs of too many late nights.

Of course, I can’t complain because I’m out of the country for a good few months every year but I reserve the right to have double standards. So I was thrilled when she and Emma returned from gallivanting in Paris earlier this month but secretly also really excited that they brought some Glossier treats with them! Frankly, it’s the least she could do for abandoning me for 10 days.
