Refresher course

Renew, revitalise and rejuvenate your skin this winter with our pick of new products to give you a glow…

Winter skin often becomes dull and dehydrated thanks to a combination of central heating inside and harsh weather outside, particularly in our corner of the world. 

Samaya Ayurvedic Skincare Exfoliant 

Samaya’s refreshing skincare range comes in three variants according to your dosha type – an ancient Indian classification of your metabolism and physiognomy. Luckily, there’s a handy guide on their website to help you work it out! Ayurveda is all about finding the balance, so their all-natural exfoliants provide a gently effective way of removing dead skin cells and impurities without damaging healthy skin below. Ingredients vary depending on the dosha type chosen, but the results are always the same – instantly revitalised softer skin. Discover more at

Katherine Daniels Multivitamin Concentrate

Colder weather and temperature fluctuations mean you sometimes need to reach for the big guns. Katherine Daniels’ Multi-Vitamin Concentrate is a supercharged 3-in-1 concentrate, to brighten, plump and perfect your skin. The salon-strength formula comes packed with 10% Vitamin C, 5% Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid. It’s an easily absorbed gel that brightens the skin, hydrates and protects from UV, blue light and pollution induced damage. Start out using it once a day or every second day as Vitamin C can be too stimulating if you’re not used to it. In a few weeks, you’ll be looking at a complexion which is more even in tone, plump, radiant and glowing with health.

There are lots of trial sizes across the range and they also off a complimentary 20 minute virtual skincare consultation to ensure you make the best choice for your skin. Explore what’s on offer at
