It’s December, a time for magic, reflection and for me personally, looking inward. Although December is arguably the busiest month of the year, I would urge everyone to find the quiet moments and lean into them, or carve out some if they don’t seem to be appearing naturally. This is the only time of year that for most of us, work slows and comes to a complete halt if you’re lucky, family and friends become the focus and that is what makes this time of year so special. So now is also the perfect time to work out wellness goals for next year and how you’re going to look after yourself even better than you did the year before. Here are the things that I will be relying upon to keep me well, sane and full of joy!

Arbonne Radiance Sheet Mask with Niacinamide

Combat Christmas skin with this heavenly mask from Arbonne designed to hydrate, smooth, and replenish. Each mask has 30ml of glow-inducing serum, including Niacinamide which supports hydration and birch leaf extracts that work to boost radiance. This is my go-to post-late night mask – an essential during the Christmas season whether you are weary faced from too much Christmas present wrapping or from a great night out with friends getting merry.

Hertility At-Home Hormone and Fertility Test

Hertility is a brand that most women will want to get to know at some point in their lives as it literally lifts the lid on what is going on inside our bodies with regard to hormones. If you have recently come off the contraceptive pill you might be finding a few symptoms that you have not experienced before and whilst it is believed that the contraceptive pill does not cause fertile issues, it can mask them. Hertility will give you important information about your hormones or fertility, whether you want to have a baby now, in the future or just want to ensure your reproductive health is in check.

Ren Bio Retinoid Youth Concentrate Oil

There is something about the smell of this facial oil that makes me feel so completely relaxed – I just love it. But that is not all I love about it. The Ren Skincare Bio Retinoid Youth Concentrate Oil has quickly become my most treasured anti-wrinkle product. Powered by a very special plant-derived alternative to retinol, Bidens Pilosa, this new-formula evening oil is proven to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles after 28 days and it also helps soothe my skin and get rid of any redness. I am obsessed.

Perfect Moment Ski Outlet

I have discovered a treasure trove of skiwear – and all for much less than it originally costs… Welcome to the Perfect Moment Outlet store. It is worth noting that it also has activewear, swimwear and the odd very snazzy ski-inspired jumper, but the skiwear is where it’s at for me as I am due on the slopes in T-minus 30 days with absolutely zero ski wardrobe to my name currently.

Ninja 2-in-1 Blender

The Ninja 2-in-1 is something that I wish I had put on my Christmas list but found out about just a little too late (but hopefully someone sees this and lets my husband know!?). Its innovative design combines a high-performance blender with a precision food processor, meaning you can make smoothies, soups, dips – you name it – all completely effortlessly. It will also even shop, slice and dice for you. And it is SO easy to clean as the whole thing is dishwasher safe. 

The Skincare Collab I’m Loving

Forest Spa Finland has just announced their collaboration with talented Finnish designer – Jonnna Saarinen on its new wash bags, taking this brand from sustainable to sustainably stylish! The design takes inspiration from autumnal walks in the forest and is the perfect size to hold your Forest Spa Finland products plus a few extra.
