CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SUSANNE KAUFMANN
Mountain Pine Bath Oil, £53
Best For: Tired, Weary Souls
Why We Rate It: Often described as one of the best bath oils of all time, this has notes of pine and spruce needles for something reminiscent of autumn and comfort. It’s also brimming with essential oils which coat the skin in moisture and soothe it for softening benefits. Uplifting and calming, the heady aroma it fills your bath with is highly addictive, as is its ability to relieve muscle tension and unknot tired, weary heads. Ideal for winter evenings, but also any time you – or a loved one – fancy some easy luxury. A must-use after a tough, long day, or throughout busy periods where you crave downtime.
Hyaluron Serum Moisturising, £107
Best For: Dry, Lacklustre Skin
Why We Rate It: Few hyaluronic (HA) serums match the efficacy of this one. Whether you or a friend is fed up of dry, flaky skin, this can help ease the problem. Designed to plump skin full of hydration, it’s brimming with plant-derived HA to lock in moisture and keep it there, right down in your skin’s dermis. The result? Long-lasting moisture which gives your complexion a firmer, lifted effect. With regular use, your complexion will feel smoother, softer and have a dewy quality to it that’s ideal for make-up application. Wear alone, or underneath your favourite day cream for maximum and sustained hydration.
Home Spa Set, £47
Best For: At-Home Pampering
Why We Rate It: Designed to bring the feel and experience of a spa to your home, this set contains all you need for better skin – and at a reasonable price point. Inside there’s calming bath crystals, moisture-boosting masks, foot creams and nourishing body oils and butters. It’s a great way to try some of the brand’s bestsellers, without committing to the usual price tags. We love the Firming Oil which uses jojoba and pomegranate oil to soak up dryness and provide limbs with better luminosity – apply it while skin is still damp for the best results, before following up with the luxe Body Butter. This is a great set for all skincare lovers, but especially those wanting to decompress and take time for themselves.
Glow Mask, £59
Best For: Speedy Radiance
Why We Rate It: Tired, dull skin is no match for this glow-boosting mask. Formulated with papaya powder – which acts as the peel – this gently exfoliates dead skin cells away, while simultaneously minimising the appearance of pores for a smoother surface. There’s ginger inside too which pushes sluggish cells into action, promoting better collagen stimulation for a more luminous, plump appearance. Even after you’ve rinsed the mask away, it will leave an invisible shield of protection against things like pollution, thanks to antioxidants inside. With so many benefits, it’s safe to say everyone can gain something from this mask.
Enzyme Peel, £49
Best For: Sensitive Skin
Why We Rate It: If you or a loved one wants to try a peel, but you fear irritation, look to Susanne Kaufmann’s formula. Designed with sensitivities in mind, it’s incredibly gentle, thanks to mild fruit acids which gently remove dead skin cells, general grime and excess levels of oil. The aim of this is to remove anything that’s blocking the skin from looking more luminous and even in tone, and it really does work. Non-abrasive, you only need a small amount to see results, while calming plant extracts like aloe vera keep skin in check and ward off any redness. You can expect skin to feel velvety smooth, soft and supple within just a few uses. One of the best products for overhauling skin when time is of the essence.
Relaxing Room Diffuser, £70
Best For: Boosting Relaxation
Why We Rate It: Is there anything more comforting than a good room diffuser? Even better when it's got a warming scent that lingers in your room for hours, like this one from Susanne Kaufmann. With natural, wooden reeds, it has a smell of local spruce and beech wood that's so cosy and ideal for this time of year. As the fragrance builds, you can expect to feel calmer and more grounded with a sense of calm. A beautiful gift for the upcoming festive season - whether that's for you, or a friend. Extra points for the recyclable packaging, so you never have any throwaway guilt.
