Kahina Fex Perfume Oil
This Kahina ‘pure-fume’ made me feel as though I were being hugged …you know the kind of warm soothing hug that makes you feel strong and confident. It may sound silly but this is a womanly perfume.
Overall this is a spicy and warm fragrance, it’s also earthy and sexy. It’s a ‘pure fume’ made from pure essential oils and comes in a roll on format, so a little goes a long way. The first note that hits you is citrusy which is not sharp but rather sensual thanks to the orange blossom, but there’s also the earthiness of the vetiver all rounded off by the spice.
If this sounds like someone you know… this could be their new favourite fragrance!

Orveda Deep Cleansing Oil
This oil starts out as more of a gel… a thick rich lush gel that thins out into an oil as you massage it into your face. This is an enjoyable experience and in my opinion, not one to be hurried – this is your perfect time to practice mindful cleansing… enjoy the sensual experience… the feel of oil on the skin, the fragrance etc… it’s a really luxurious experience for someone who loves a mindful cleanse.

79 Lux Duo
I couldn’t pick between these two fabulous body products from serious skincare brand 79 Lux… both are fantastic in different ways.
The Balm is not quite a cream and not quite a lotion and it delivers… an ultra nourishing body balm made using organic and wild crafted ingredients to nourish, nurture and protect. Rich in Essential Oils, Shea butter, Rose Quartz, Hyaluronic Acid, Lactic Acid and Zinc – finished with a touch of Gold for that ‘lit from within’ luminosity.
The Golden Oil is a lush blend of gold-infused cold pressed and essential oils: when I say gold, I mean real gold which has therapeutic benefits to the skin. The other therapeutic benefits come from the inclusion of deeply rejuvenating Marula oil, Frankincense oil and Rose oil all of which work to deeply nourish and soften the skin. This luxurious oil could be used on face and body and in your hair – basically anywhere that you want a golden glow.

Epara comforting body cream
A luxurious body cream isn’t always something that a person will treat them self too, but here’s an opportunity for you to indulge someone who appreciates luxury skincare. This rich ‘comforting body cream’ from luxury Nigerian brand Epara which actually means ‘to cocoon oneself’ is a blend of mango butter, coconut oil , moringa oil, Marula oil and more and it has a lovely fragrance too.

Slip Pillowcase and Eye Mask
This is a treat that I feel a lot of people wouldn’t decide to buy themselves… making a silk pillowcase or silk eye mask a really lovely gift.
A silk pillowcase is not only a treat to sleep on, feeling amazing, but it also helps to reduce frizz and breakage of the hair… it’ll also help to stop any friction between your face and the pillow, helping to protect your skin. A satin eye mask will not only help you to sleep, but will protect the delicate eye area and travels well too. Fab!
