Take a cue from the Pantone 2014 colour of the year – radiant orchid – with these gorgeous products from one of my favourite natural brands, Bare Minerals. Try Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Fly High, Marvelous Moxie Lip gloss in Ring Leader and Ready Eye shadow in The Dream Sequence. You can be soft and romantic or dramatic and bold, the colours can be applied in whichever way suits you best.
L’Occitane Red Cherry Star Gift
L’Occitane’s new Red Cherry Eau de Parfum blends the pink flowers of spring with the red cherries of summer to create a fresh but sexy scent. I love a good gift set and for £45 you get the Red Cherry Eau de Parfum, shower gel, hand cream and body milk.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream
With fans including Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian, Kiehl’s sells four tubs of Ultra Facial Cream per minute across 45 global markets. Doug Stoup, polar expedition expert tried some on his latest exploration and said: “I feel it really prevents my skin from drying and chapping. This product really works and I depend on it to provide all day continuous hydration.” Take that polar vortex and winds from the Antarctic!
Dermalogica Pre Cleanse Wipes
I love a good face wipe and I’m a huge fan of Dermalogica so was pleased when they decided to take liquid form, PreCleanse and make it available in packs of convenient, biodegradable wipes. Formulated with a special blend of lightweight olive and apricot kernel based oil and fortified with kukui nut, borage seed and rice bran oils, the wipes are designed to remove surface debris and prep skin for the cleansing process.

NEOM Invigorate Candle
Give yourself a much needed post-January boost with this refreshing Invigorate candle. Featuring a blend of grapefruit, bergamot and lime, I agree with Caroline Flack who said “…zesty lemon and grapefruit scents help keep me alert during the day.”
