You’ve nearly made it through January – all 1,339 days of it – so we think it’s the perfect time to reward yourself with some beauty therapy. Put on the “do not disturb” notice and indulge in these self-care essentials to leave you and your skin feeling stress-free.

Indulge in a limited-edition collection of La Mer’s most-loved treatments, from Harvey Nichols. The Treatment Lotion supercharges your skin with a splash of hydration while The Eye Concentrate diminishes the appearance of dark circles. To help support skin’s natural collagen, try The Regenerating Serum and, for a finishing touch of soothing moisture, the classic Crème de la Mer cream.

Take an hour out from those endless to-do lists with Sanctuary Spa’s Little Moments Gift Set, from Sainsbury’s. Bursting with gorgeously scented florals, this soothing and serene trio includes body wash, scrub and lotion infused with rose and water lily.

A wellbeing and self-care gift for anyone who needs some TLC (so that’s all of use then!). The Perfect Night Sleep Box from Letterbox Gifts includes a silk eye mask, Calm Balm, Sleep Better pillow mist and a cotton lavender bag, each selected to promote relaxation and blissful sleep.

New from Heaven Skincare, Alpine Drops have been created by founder Deborah Mitchell to boost vitamin absorption and water purity. Inspired by the very essence of the Alpines, these drops capture nature’s finest ingredients, including volcanic ash and pine sap, to help neutralise the negative impact pollutants can have on our bodies. There are three phials – Activator, Balancer and Maintenance – that work over a two-week cycle.

Ease anxiety and irritability, and press pause on stress with Mind Spa Bath Salts, from Ocean & Bee. Soothing eucalyptus, therapeutic lavender and uplifting bergamot are hand-blended with magnesium-rich Epsom Salts, dried rose petals and chamomile flower to leave you feeling more grounded and balanced.


Capture the essence of younger looking skin with Dior’s Capture Totale Total Anti-aging Skincare Ritual gift set, from Selfridges. Start the three-set routine with the Super Potent Serum morning and night, followed by the Firming and Wrinkle-Correcting Cream on the face and the neck. Finish with the Firming and Wrinkle-Correcting Eye Cream on the entire eye area.

When it comes to looking after ourselves, many of us forget to take care of our hands. But after two years of constant washing and harsh gels they really need some TLC. Keep them nourished and your senses refreshed with this Calm hand care trio from Marks & Spencer’s Apothecary collection. Fragranced with lavender, sweet orange, clary sage and cedarwood, there’s three full-size products – a wash, cream and an on-the-go quick-drying antibacterial gel.
