For a sheet mask that really packs a punch, Karuna’s Hydrating face mask is chock full of nourishing ingredients. The sheet itself is made from biodegradable wood pulp which retains 50% more moisture than synthetic cloth masks. It does require 20 minutes of your time so it’s worth planning this into your schedule. But boy is it worth it. It left our skin feeling deeply moisturised and looking glowing even until the next day.

We’ve been experimenting with Vegan hair products and Maria Nila is a definite winner at The Vendeur HQ. Free from parabens and sulphates, it also has argan oil for silky soft, nourished tresses. Even if you use it regularly on coloured hair, the Colour Guard Complex ensures you won’t lose your colour.

There’s no denying that this is a spenny product but trust us when we say that its a game changer. It’s a very rich, thick cream, so you don’t need to apply much. If you suffer from dry, sensitive or rosacea prone skin then MV Organics may be able to help. The Bulgarian Rose Oil in this is so hydrating and soothing, especially in the Winter months. Plus, we found it to be very good at soothing those red patches that get aggravated when it’s cold. 

It can be hard to find eye mask products that are biodegradable but these Rejuvenating Eye Gels from Patchology totally are. And best of all, they work in just 5 minutes. The perfect option when time is an issue. These little wonder patches leave your under eye area feeling soft and smooth. A great option if you are feeling tired and need a quick perk up. They also even the appearance of fine lines and puffiness.

If like us, you are dreaming of the summer months then try this yummy body balm from Aesop. The zesty aroma of pink grapefruit and lemon and orange rinds take us right back to holidays in the Mediterranean. It’s quite thick, so its ideal if you are suffering from dry skin this season. Massage it in well after a shower or bath. Remember to not have the water too hot as it can have a drying effect on your skin. You’ll smell totally delicious all day long.
