Two rather great skin care deals that have been brought to my attention: the first is the Origins Mask Marvels gift set. I know many of you are avid fans of the Origins masks, so this deal should be a bit of a pleaser; three 75ml tubes of their bestsellers for £23 instead of £50. There’s the Clear Improvement charcoal mask for pore-clearing and purifying, the Out of Trouble for tackling temperamental skin and soothing any flare-ups and then there’s Drink-Up Intensive for dehydrated skin that needs a bit of a moisture boost. If I remember correctly, Drink-Up (the original) was one of my first ever mask purchases when I started modelling (I’m sure I bought it in New York!) and so I’m looking forward to trying the super-sonic version. You can find the Mask Marvels set at Boots.com here – it’s only on offer this week.
A great way to try Zelens if the full-sized products are a bit of a financial push or you want to have a good try before you invest wholly: the Skin Perfector Collection. The equivalent value is over £80 but this set is £42, making it quite a sensible buy even if you’re already a convert! There are three 15ml tubes of hero product; the Z Matrix moisturiser, the amazing Transformer mask and the 3t Complex anti-Ageing Cream, a potent skin hydrator that really smoothes and plumps. The Transformer mask is already one of my favourites (read more about it here) and I really like the Z Matrix; the anti-ageing cream is next on my list to try! This is hi-tec skincare at its best and although the tubes seem small, the full-sized jars are all around £90-£100, so it’s actually a very good value set. £42 at Space Nk here.
Not skincare, but I loved this trio of candles that came through the post from luxury home-fragrancing store Delyss. I don’t think that you can buy this set, but the website is an absolute treasure trove of unusual, chic and show-stopping candles. If you were hunting for a present-with-a-difference and wanted to look as though you’d done all of your Christmas shopping in little Parisian side-streets, Delyss.com is your new friend.
