Skincare Treasures for Stocking Surprises

All year round, skincare plays an essential role in keeping our skin healthy, happy and in top condition. With the heat of summer comes dehydration, sun-damage and even skin sensitivity so it’s vital to replenish lost moisture and protect the complexion. The perfect skincare stocking filler gift is a natural hydrating facial mist like the Mukti Organics Rose Blossom Hydrating Mist. This luxurious stocking filler can be kept in the fridge for an all day cool down for the face. It helps set makeup and the hydrating benefits also really boost skin luminosity. And don’t let faces have all the fun; the Pelactiv Hydrating Body Mist - Coco Lime quenches thirsty skin all over the body whilst lightly wrapping the skin in a delicious tropical fragrance - yum! You simply cannot go wrong with a mini skincare routine like the Endota Spa Organics Hydrate Mini Skincare Kit either, so take a peek at a skincare gift as you’ll surely be onto a winner.
