Pots Of Goodness

These attractive little round pots are designed to please, explains Mary Linehan

Steam Cream is an exceptional, rich and glossy multi-purpose moisturiser that harnesses the power and energy of bubbling steam.

We all know how steam helps deep cleanse. With this technology it creates a loose emulsion that allows the cream to break down immediately on contact with the skin so that all those fabulous ingredients – such as orange flower water, oatmeal infusion, almond and organic jojoba oils – can penetrate easily and work their wonders more effectively. It’s beautifully fragranced, too, with orange blossom, neroli and rose absolute.

And just check out the funky limited edition packaging! These collectible tins, designed in Japan, are smart enough and light enough to carry round in your handbag for emergencies.

Available to order online (£9.95 for 75g) at www.steamcream.co.uk or from Liberty.

Bourjois’ new limited edition little round pots collection is a celebration of its Parisian heritage – quelle bonne idée! Rendez-vous à Paris is a divine collaboration with Parisienne artist and illustrator Nathalie Lété – a colourful collection of 8 round pots of eyeshadow, highlighter and blush, each denoting a Paris landmark. If a quick dash on the Eurostar is out of the question, make sure you nab one to bring a little touch of la belle France to your dressing table.

Bourjois is one of the best mass makeup ranges on the market– and you’ll always find one or two of their products in top makeup artists’ makeup bags, too. These classics are really good value with eyeshadows at £5.86 and blushers only £6.84. Hurry, though before they depart.

Available exclusively at www.asos.com (November to December – while stocks last).
