Reviewed: Elemental Herbology Moisture Milk

I meant to write about this great little hydrator a while back but somehow forgot to (it’s my age!).

Anyway, an ultra-light moisturiser it’s brilliant for oiler skins or anyone who suffers from spots as it regulates sebum production (don’t use it if you have very dry skin as it won’t provide the intense hydration you need).

It’s also absorbed immediately, leaves no sticky-residue and helps mattify skin. It even includes fruit enzymes to help exfolaite skin of dead skin cells too.

What I love most about it though is the smell. There’s a raft of aromatic essential oils in there – from rosemary and tea tree to pelargonium flower oil, which makes it smell of geraniums – one of my favourite aromas. So if you get chance, check it out.

Elemental Herbology Moisture Milk is available from Space NK

recipe for success

200004755Let’s face it, when it comes to grooming gear how a thing looks is almost as important as how it performs. Oh, I know it’s shallow but I’ll readily hold my hands up and admit I’m a sucker for nice packaging. So, I’m instantly drawn to Recipe For Men, a range of grooming products hailing from Sweden and (wisely) snapped up by Space NK

Developed to work well in dry, harsh and cold climates as well as more temperate ones, it’s the first range to excite me in ages. The new Facial Cleanser (how’s that for a no-nonsense name?) has the texture of honey, comes in a pump dispenser so there’s no waste and has the subtlest of fragrances – just what you need from a  daily cleanser. What’s more the design, with it’s sticky-out label, is cooler than a Scando indie band. Fabulous stuff.

 

Available from Space NK price £15.
