(From around £2 👍🏻👏🏻👍🏻👏🏻) I love Rosemary & Olive Oil Deep Cleansing Oil, so soothing yet reviving and nourishing for the face and a sniffy treat; Frankincense & Rose Face Oil is also super soothing, smells gorgeous and ideal for mature skin while cooling unisex Cedarwood & Peppermint Shower & Bath Gel has to be your go-to product on hot, sticky days, with cedarwood making sure you don't smell like a Polo!

The name of this Origins Warm Down Warming Lava Scrub had me at Lava. Sometimes I feel so polluted (fumes, crisps, digital, emails, humans - you know?) that I want to just sit and steep in a volcanic mountain spring. Well this  shower-activated exfoliator with volcanic ash is that in a tube! It warms on contact to ease tension, while the soothing essential oil blend of wild mint, spearmint and vanilla leaves skin softer and ultra-clean. Bye-bye toxic thoughts...£29 for 150ml. Brilliant!⠀⠀

Now here's a super-smart, luxurious treat for your hard-working face (and neck and chest, don't forget about those bits): Gazelli White Oil™ intensive age repair cream and ultimate firming serum⠀
Based on genetic scientist Dr Zarifa Hamzayeva’s formulations, the exquisite award-winning Gazelli Triple Youth Range is effective and a total pleasure to use. Plus, they have the all important vote of confidence from testers. With Intensive Age Repair Cream (£70 for 50ml), 89% of women aged 41-50 saw an improvement in wrinkles, 96% in overall skin condition and 93% improved hydration). Ultimate Firming Serum (£75 for 30ml) is another winner: it lifts and firms, targets lines, triggers cell regeneration and protects from free radical damage. Incredible value for money, comparatively speaking. We love! #skincare #agewell #dailyskintreast #gazelli #spaskin ⠀

Skincare made by the skin doctors... ⠀
I've had my head seriously turned by Doctor Maryam Zamani's new, super-smart and a treat to use very active skincare range. Doctor Maryam Zamani runs clinics at Chelsea’s state-of-the-art Cadogan Aesthetic Clinic and was awarded ‘Best for Eyes’ by Tatler mag (and we all know how hard to please that lot are!) Iranian American Zamani is stylish and smart in equal measure herself (the shoes!), so totally understands the importance of the feel-good factor and that fact we are suckers for gorgeous packing and textures alongside the hard-working science and ingredient formulation. Her MZ range combines clinical know-how with high-performance ingredients. Cleanse & Clarify is an excellent, dual action AHA cleanser and mask (£56) that will give your skin freshness, clarity, refined pores and a glow you haven't seen for years.  As does her Natural Konjac Sponge (£19) also genius (it's the dark pink round thing in the pic). It's rich in skin savvy minerals and iron oxide clay to help stimulate blood flow, 100% natural, exfoliating, from the Konnayaku plant and adds an elf-like lustre@(free-from chemicals, additives and preservatives and suitable for all skin even the sensitive). Her Rest & Revive Restorative Placental Stem Cell Night Serum (£195) is a big investment but it gives skin a serious overhaul and what can only be described as an inner strength. Silky to use, with gene reactivating ingredients, clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth over 30 days. Which it does. Clever stuff. Available at Harrods.⠀
Another doctor brand that packs a punch in packaging/ pleasure/potency is formulated by Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh, cosmetic doctor. Rose de Vie Cream Cleanser (£32 for 100ml), is good for the dehydrated as it's infused with mineral-rich spring water from Brittany, pumpkin seed extract and apricot oil to nourish and help protect from pollution. Rose de Vie Hydrating Mask (£74 for 100ml) has watermelon, iris and rose extracts and vitamin C. The handy-sized tube is ideal for a post-flight skin pick me up. Available online.⠀

Hot n' sweaty? Cow Pit herbal deodorant is one of the latest Cowshed products to hit the shelves, and comes in spray or cream formulations. Despite their natural credentials – each deodorant packs a punch containing aloe vera, peppermint, spearmint and lemongrass essential oils, all prized for their antimicrobial and antiseptic properties – they really do work with no chemical sting or smell. Also great if you have young un's who are starting to get a bit whiffy and want to give them something natural but effective to use. Job done. £12 for 50ml. @cowshed #bobasher #summer #hot #pits #naturaldeodorant #cowshed @delara21

Morning moringa….The Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging range from Estee Lauder certainly packs a punch with moringa extract to unlock your inner glow. It's a brilliant boost. Look out for new Instant Refinishing Facial (£41), a gentle, refreshing and effective water-activated high-performance exfoliating treatment - best used in the shower. Your moisturiser and sun cream glide on after.⠀The rest of the range includes turbo charged moisturisers for face and eyes: Cell Power Creme (£68 for 50ml), Wake up Balm (£46) and Cell Power Eye Gelee (£40). ⠀@esteelauderuk⠀#morningface #goodmorning #freshskin #thisistheantidote
