Revive your skin whilst you sleep with beuti skincare…

beauty, Christmas gifting

After long days and party nights revive your skin whilst you sleep with Beuti Skincare #beautysleepelixir it’s said to be one of Kate Middletons favourite go-to products after someone gifted it to her (it has anti-inflammatory properties which will work wonders after sleepless nights!)

This luxury face oil has a 100% natural blend of 14 plant-based oils, including a Caribbean coral extract which is a powerful anti-inflammatory as it neutralises the enzyme responsible for skin ageing, plus a sandalwood nut kernel oil to help prevent collagen and elastin break down. These are then combined with a generous amount of camellia oil, chia seed oil, bitter cherry seed oil, strawberry seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, blueberry seed oil, cranberry seed oil, raspberry seed oil, seabuckthorn fruit berry oil, sandalwood oil, lavender herb oil, geranium flower oil, neroli flower oil and capric trglyceride from coconut.

Personally the oily formula isn’t my personal favourite, but by morning theres no residue left, it is all gone and has melted into your skin effortlessly whilst working it’s wonderful magic. You can also wear it under your make up for a brighter dewy look.

Shine in the light, bask in the dark

Valentine’s Day is nearly here and if you haven’t found the perfect gift yet – well, there’s no need to panic! The LIGHT & DARK collection by fragrance maverick Leighton Denny MBE fulfils anyone’s desires with four unique and intoxicating fragrance experiences that take you from day to night, and the best bit?…They’ll think of you every time they wear it! Here we have the four fragrances available in the travel compact refillable spray bottles that are cute in themselves!… 

Our fave was LIGHT & DARK Lively (green) £43.50, 70ml, Opening with top notes of citrus and warmed by spicy nutmeg, ginger, cardamom and pepper, this scent deepens as it settles on the skin creating a luxurious, shareable fragrance. Unisex too – we actually gave this to the men in our lives as it is similar to one of our fave scents they already wear. 

You also have LIGHT & DARK Original (Gold) £43.50, 70ml, a heady blend of pepper, myrrh and incense. With hints of gardenia, jasmine and top notes of mandarin and grapefruit, this scent will capture anyone’s attention.

LIGHT & DARK Delightful (Pink) £43.50, 70ml, is  the newest addition to Leighton’s fragrance collection. Bursting with red fruits, this sensual scent smells so good you could almost eat it! Supported by the merest touch of lotus flower and mirabilis jasmine, the fragrance finishes off with a gentle trail of sweet musk and creamy vanilla.

Finally the set brings you another unisex scent – LIGHT & DARK Desire £43.50, 70ml, a sensual, mysterious, dark woody scent that is ideal for a romantic candle-lit dinner. Top notes of citrus balance with amber, moss and pepper creating a deep, sexy scent.

Bring the love into the light and let it dance in the dark by fulfilling that desire with Leighton Denny this Valentine’s day.

Available from LD-Boutique.com

The LIGHT & DARK collection retails for £43.50, 70ml. LIGHT & DARK fragrance minis retail for £9.50, 5ml.
