FOR YOUR EASTER WISH LIST
If you are looking for Easter gifts for your friends, relations or nearest and dearest then the beauty counters are loaded with guilt free gifts that won’t expand the waistline or increase the sugar intake. There’s something for everyone in the selection of goodies we have chosen.
Although it might not be sunny we can capture the freshness of the English Fields by popping into the Jo Malone boutique in the Victoria Quarter. Their new five limited edition fragrances are the essence of the English landscapes. Each is sophisticated in its simplicity and great for fragrance combining. Chose from Poppy & Barley, Primrose & Rye, Oat & Cornflower, Green Wheat and Meadowsweet and Honey and Crocus
The lovely Lush has all manner of easter treats that will go down well with the kids and just as well with gran. Their famous Golden Egg Bath Bomb return – well Easter wouldn’t be Easter without it plus some old favourites and new items. You needn’t be a bunny to try the new carrot soap or why not plump for an April Showers Bath Comb. For sheer indulgence I love the Cream Egg Bubbleroon.
A gift everyone will adore comes in the form of Bathing Flowers in a sliding box by Heathcote & Ivory. They bring interior design to bathtime with artistically crafted bathing flowers that add a touch of colour and fragrance. From the Neroli and Lime Leaves Collection these add sunshine and fragrance to bath-time. Available on line www.heathcote-ivory.com or call 02074838383 for nearest stockist
After the winter chills everyone will appreciate some TLC for their skin. So why not pop along to the Clarins counter for a facial oil. Their facial treatment oils are a potent blend of essential oils and plant extracts created in by founder Jacques Courtin-Clarins in 1954 and unchanged since then. One hundred per cent natural and preservative free they are perfect for pampering. Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil is ideal for dehydrated skin after the long harsh winter.
You can’t have Easter without rabbits and those lovely people at Body Shop have joined forces with HAM to create a limited edition box that showcase’s HAM’s renown rabbit as he becomes an activist and takes a stand against animal testing on behalf of bunnies world wide. The gift box is free with the purchase of any Expert Facial Mask and Bunny Headband.
Everyone’s favourite brand, once they have tried it, L’Occitane on Briggate in the Victoria Quarter, has some wonderful Easter treats. Their new fragrance L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere L’Eau for Spring with its floral and peony notes is so feminine yet fresh. But can you resist their Beauty Easter Eggs filled with a mini treat – but be quick they are flying off the shelves!
