Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

Ah! What to say. It is fresh, it smells like a thousand rose bouquets and leaves the skin indulgently moist. A must buy for the summer. To use in planes, on the beach or after that perfect late summer night shower.

Aura Manuka Honey Mask Antipodes

I buy this organic face mask repeatedly when I travel back to the UK and it is the bomb. Great hydrating agent, it is also very calming and treating for acne-prone skins. Love it!

Ouai rose hair and body oil

Lush, expensive and oriental scents of rose petals, this oil is QUEEN. I use a small nut after the shower and let my hair dry naturally under the sun with it. Also great as an oil for dry legs after a long day by the ocean.

Recollection 2 in white

With true summer notes of soft jasmine petals, neroli blossom, spices and gardenia; we bottled summer vibes in a jar. It is rich and floral, enticing and exciting. We brought perfumes from Grasse together with a natural and vegan wax hand-poured in Scandinavia. We think we truly made the most luxurious and natural candle on the market. Vegan, natural and sustainable, you will indulge in summer scents without causing any harm. Get them on our sister brand ReCollections Candles.

Bali Body Watermelon tanning oil

Tanning oils are always a little controversial, but I have used this one for the last two summers and my skin thanked me for it. Sure it helps get browner, but is also deeply moisturizing and leaves the skin hydrated and smelling delicious. Must!

Ialuset cream

ialuset cream how to use

My (not so much anymore) best kept secret! A lot of you have asked me how to best use ialuset cream. And the answer is simple: on everything! Initially designed for burns, it works wonder as a hydration mask and after-sun. Rich in hyaluronic acid, apply it in thick layers after a day at the beach and let it cool and plump your skin back to life. Ideal for pinky shoulders too! This the best French beauty product to buy when on holidays.
