Katherine Daniels Nourishing Hydrating Balm and Gentle Oil & Salt Exfoliator

the Antidote to... products not designed for the English climate

British skincare concept Katherine Daniels has taken a different approach to its skincare range, using experts with over 60 years’ experience of working with the country’s top therapists. We particularly like Gentle Oil & Salt Exfoliator which has garnered sea salts from around the world, blending them with calming and relaxing essential oils (petitgrain, lavandin, cypress, geranium, rosemary and camomile) for thorough body exfoliation followed by the silkiest skin, £27.50 for 200ml. The Nourishing Hydrating Balm, is a brilliant follow-up to it, also £27.50 for 200ml, with rich butters and oils – brown seaweed osmolyte prevents dehydration, while shea butter nourishes and provides lasting hydration. Impressive product trials show lasting hydration – even after six hours, skin was still 10% more dewy.
