AD: Christmas products featured below were for consideration only with no obligation to feature.
Christmas is just under two weeks away. This year has been a “rollercoaster of a ride”. No one can argue with that statement. As we face the “tweaked” tier system here in the United Kingdom, I can’t help but think “will it ever truly feel like Christmas”? If you’re struggling to get into the festive spirit, start listening to those classic Christmas songs, put on your all-time favourite Christmas film, indulge into a mince pie (or two!) and decorate the front porch with colourful Christmas lights.
Moreover, why not get cosy, sit down with your favourite comforting drink and dive into this Christmassy blog post curated by your one and only, Mister Wharff.
Maxine Lacey Absolute Collagen Christmas Cracker
One thing I don’t talk often on my blog is how dedicated I am to my health supplements. From taking my daily Vitamin C to BCAA (brain chain amino acids), I have always been a loyal customer to the supplement world. This luxury Absolute Collagen Christmas Cracker makes no exception for health and fitness lovers. In addition to this, Absolute Collagen uses the purest, top-quality of 8000mg type 1 marine collagen. Carefully blended with a shot of Vitamin C for perfect absorption into the body.
What’re the benefits of taking collagen? Proven in clinical testing, taking Absolute Collagen helps to nurture hair, nails and skin from the inside, and out. Furthermore, this stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, thus treating damaged hair, skin imperfections and ageing skin. What more could you simply as for this Christmas?
What’s inside the Christmas Cracker? Apart from receiving the most beautifully presented, gleaming cracker this Christmas. Not only will you receive a 14 day supply of Absolute Collagen, but you will also be gifted a decorative, golden nestled inside (it has a nice weight to it!). Will you be treating your loved ones to this ‘fountain of youth’ ingredient? Collagen that is.
Nourish London Relaxing Retreat
We all need that “serene feeling” at this Christmas time, and what better way to “take a bite” of this with Nourish London. This indulgent pamper gift set not only contains two of my all-time favourite products, but also a new, sensual arrival that will de-stress one’s mind from a single spray (or two!).
All 3 products are delivered inside a fair trade, organic cotton drawstring bag, lovingly made by Freeset.
What is Freeset?
Founded 20 years ago in Kolkata, Freeset offers alternative employment for women working in the sex trade industry. Much more than just “another” fair trade business, Freeset provides an income above the minimum wage (for the vulnerable of extreme poverty). In addition to this, Freeset supports paid leave, pension contribution and sick leave. Brands like Nourish choose Freeset for this very reason (and for the extreme quality and durability of every Freeset product).
Probiotic Multi-Mineral Repair Mask
Nutrient-rich, Nourish’s skin-smoothing facial mask offers reparative, collagen boosting and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin. Probiotic minerals play an important role in the process of rebalancing, calming and soothing troublesome skin. Furthermore, Damask Rose and Lavender provides a sense of peace and serenity.
Relax Hydrating Peptide Serum
Following with the calming roots, this high-performance serum nurtures, re-hydrates and supports those with easily reactive skin. This is one serum to add on your Christmas list this year. Lightweight, supercooling and fast-absorbing, this one-of-a-kind serum glides effortlessly over cleansed skin with no hesitation insight.
The Sleepy Pillow Mist
Combining a total of 9 aromatic essential oils and “stress-reducing” Epsom salts, this latest launch from Nourish London couldn’t have come at a better time. In fact, just one or two spritzes across your pillow will lift you away to dreamland.
ARK Skin Essentials Mini Duo
You don’t have to spend the absolute earth to treat your loved ones this Christmas, and ARK’s Skin Essentials Mini Duo proves just that!
What is included?
Two of the best-selling products from ARK Skincare, and one that is a personal favourite. The ARK Skin Essential Pre-Cleanse and Makeup Remover is a product that not only delivers pure performance but also formulated for your current lifestyle needs.
Jam-packed full of skin-loving omegas 3,6 and 9 to deeply pamper and protect the skin’s barrier. Ayurvedic herbs enhance the complexion, leading to soft glowing skin. For a thorough, yet satisfying cleanse, apply a small amount of product onto dry skin and begin to massage. Then, add a splash of lukewarm water to create a milky emulsion, massage in again before fully rinsing. Lastly, this can also be used as a gentle eye makeup remover by simply following the same instructions.
ARK Hydrating Beauty Mist
Here’s one product that deserves more attention in the skincare field. ARK combined a complex of Amino Acids and a dose of Hyaluronic Acid to create a beautifying facial mist without the high price-tag. With a cooling cocktail of Wild Water Mint, pure Aloe Vera and Allantoin to soothe and comfort troublesome skin.
Simply apply as a toner, to refresh a make-up look or to cool down during exercise. The ARK Hydrating Beauty Mist is one multitasker that you didn’t know you needed until now. Why not keep your bottle in a fridge to fully enjoy and experience the ultimate skin refreshment.
