The Comforting Beauty Buys We’re Loving This Winter

From stress-relieving salts to mood-boosting candles, the seasonal beauty offering at John Lewis is one of the best around. Lavender bath foams will help foster a cosy atmosphere, while indulgent face masks will soothe and nourish weather-beaten skin. Here, Zoe Taylor, SL make-up artist & beauty contributor, is on hand to share what we’re loving at right now…


"A bath in winter is essential for boosting your body and mind,” says Zoe. “Try scattering in some eucalyptus salts to up the ante – they are guaranteed to help you switch off and float into a blissful sleep. When you get out of the tub, slather on a cosseting balm, like Natureofthings Superlative formula. It has a heavenly scent that seeps into the skin, calming the senses and softening your limbs at the same time."
"It’s important to use the time when you’re asleep well, so choose a face mask you can leave on overnight for a fresh-looking complexion come morning," adds Zoe. "The Fresh Rose Deep Hydrating Mask will nourish and restore lacklustre skin. If you forget, pop it on the moment you wake up and leave it for as long as you can before applying your make-up – any length of time you can have this silky formula on your skin is a bonus."
"Try incorporating some massage into your winter regime using your hands and fingers,” finishes Zoe. “It can enhance radiance and bring structure to the face. You can try a jade roller, too – to boost results, combine it with a serum like Sunday Riley’s A+ High Dose Retinoid. It will help to push the product into the skin for speedier results – just use light, soft movements.
