    SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque

    One of best skincare products we have ever tried, SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque contains cooling cucumber, olive and thyme to minimise redness and irritation. The intensely calming formula works wonders on stressed out skin, and so is great for certain times of the month when skin can become inflamed.

    A top tip for this face mask is to use after a day in the sun or skiing, as it helps to calm both wind and sun burn and take the heat out of the skin. Keep in the fridge for a super cooling treat.
