It’s pamper time with Lookfantastic…

Just because the bird’s are singing outside and the sun is scorching down on us (how lucky have we been this year so far, by the way?!), it doesn’t mean our skin needs any less pampering than it does in the cold, winter months. If anything, our skin can become really dehydrated in the heat and as a result it becomes dry, damaged and in desperation need of moisture.

So why not take some time out this week and do your skin – and your spirit, a favour?! Whether it’s an evening spent on your own soaking in the tub with the candles lit after a long, hard day at the office, or taking the full weekend to totally de-stress and leave the worries of the weekday behind, here on Lookfantastic, we’ve got just the products you’ll need for some much-needed pamper time.

NEOM Luxury Organics Real Luxury Luxury Standard Scented Candle

New to Lookfantastic, the NEOM Luxury Organics Real Luxury Luxury Scented Candle is enough to lull you into the land of nod, thanks to its soothing fragrance of lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood. Made of pure vegetable wax and natural oils, the 420g candle has three wicks, and is designed to burn for up to 50 hours – allowing you plenty of time to unwind and lose yourself in its heady scent. Free from toxins, this gorgeous candle burns clearly and evenly all the way to the bottom and leaves a lasting, calming aroma. Oh god, is it bath time yet?!

Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask (250ml)

Well, as much as we love the sun, it’s not great for our hair. Its harmful UV rays will strip the natural oil from our tresses and leave it dry and brittle, so what better excuse to whip the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask out, then?! This rich and creamy treatment is designed to deeply hydrate and repair damaged hair from root to tip and works to revitalise your hair, restoring it’s natural radiance and manageability. It’s particularly effective for dry, thick and coarse hair, but can be used on all hair types. We recommend applying a generous amount over towel-dried hair and leaving it on for 5-7 minutes before rinsing out. If the weather’s nice, you could even sit in your garden with a towel wrapped around your head while you wait. It’ll help lock in optimum moisture and penetrate deeper into the hair follicle – go on, who’s gonna’ judge?!

NEOM Luxury Organics Real Luxury Body and Hand Lotion

It’s not just your hair that’ll need a little tender loving care. The NEOM Luxury Organics Real Luxury Body and Hand Lotion is perfect for slathering on your skin for a splurge of much needed moisture. Like the NEOM luxury scented candle mentioned above, it shares the same, soothing scent of lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood, put together to wrap your body and mind in a cocoon of calmness and tranquility. Oooo. Formulated with an expert blend of shea butter, argan oil and buckthorn oil, as well as 94% organic ingredients, this luxurious lotion is packed with vitamins and anti-ageing properties designed to protect your skin and boost its maximum beauty potential. What’s more, it’s not a heavy moisturiser, so is suitable for use on the hands and won’t leave them layered with a film of grease.
