Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Restorative Capsules visibly improves skin tone and clarity whilst supporting the skin’s own natural collagen levels for a firmer, more resilient look. Apply to a clean face and let the little capsules work their magic.

Shu Uemura Ultime8 Cleansing Oil effortlessly removes all kinds of make-up and impurities. Your skin will feel soft, conditioned, hydrated, nourished from within and will be glowing with a new radiance.

Gamila Secret Original Soap provides a gentle yet deep cleansing of the skin; encouraging self-repair, promoting elasticity and hydrating, whilst being suitable for the most sensitive skin types.



Shiseido Intensive Anti-Spot Serum is more than just a spot corrector. It seeks dark spots on the skin and targets them with the protection of laser treatment, while keeping your skin healthy and radiant.

YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum boasts visible results from the first use, and after one month your skin will feel tighter as if it’s been lifted and wrinkles will appear reduced.

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale New Generation Serum’s innovative re-texturising formula restores the appearance of the skin’s dense and even firmness for a spectacularly smoother, resurfaced look.



Crème de la Mer The Body Reparative Lotion delivers the anti-aging power of a serum. It replenishes moisture, helps even skin tone and helps protect against future damage. Massage into your skin to feel instantly comforted.

Origins Night A Mins Oil Free Moisturiser puts dullness to rest. While the relaxing aromas lull you to sleep, your skin sloughs away dry, dead layers which helps delete the appearance of dullness. Wake up looking and feeling refreshed.

Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion is a moisturizing formula for oilier skins. This creates a more even appearing skin tone while instantly brightening and clarifying the skins appearance.




Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask is filled with vitamins and anti-aging ingredients to restore the vitality and freshness of young skin. Your skin will instantly feel moisturised and plumped up and will look visibly smoother and rested.

Dior Svelte Body Desire offers you the power to redefine and reveal a desirable body in a single step through slimming, firming and contouring the skin. Apply all over and you will feel like a new you!

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream  gives you instantly soft hands and stronger nails thanks to extracts of Sesame, Japanese Mulberry and Myrrh. Your skin will feel soft and moisturised instantly.



Bare Minerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen is sheer and weightless and can be used from head to toe without clogging pores. Apply under foundation or use as a light coverage.

Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balm available in an array of shades, this balm is super-nourishing and loaded with mango and shea butters; just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth!

Alice Carroll

I'm Alice, Al or, if you are the five year old me, Ice (yes, I did want to be a member of Kris Kross, and yes, I did wear my jeans backwards). Womenswear Editor at House of Fraser Online, I've grown out of backwards clothes and instead chose to invest my money in vintage sportswear and bomber jackets, while inking my body with unnecessary tattoos and rapping along to every word of The Streets - Original Pirate Material. My proudest moments were seeing a shoot I styled in my favourite magazine and getting a three-dart-finish in a game of darts. Oh, and Bart Simpson was my first crush.
