some of her favourite wellbeing products
all in royal purple…
Actiph Alkaline Ionised Water
There are some health experts who believe eating and drinking foods and liquids that help alkalise our bodies is best for health. I love Actiph spring water (£1.39) from Shropshire, which is purified, then ionised to remove any sour taste, before electrolytes and minerals are added. Finally, it’s then supercharged to a pH 9.0+.
Floris Violet Mouthwash
Most mouthwashes contain harsh chemicals, so I’ve always avoided them…until now. Floris Violet Mouthwash (£40) has converted me, as not only does it look beautiful on my bathroom shelf, it’s free from fluoride, contains essential oils, and tastes of parma violets! And although it’s pricey, a little goes a long way as you simply dilute a few drops into water.
This probiotic supplement (£15.71) contains seven strains of live bacteria and antifungal garlic and grapefruit extract, to strengthen your body against candida, by reinforcing the gut’s microflora and lowering its pH. It helps me to manage any sugar indulgences!
Healthspan Replenish Body Butter
A rich body butter specially formulated for more mature skin, particularly women who are going through or are past the menopause. Replenish Body Butter (£9.95) contains phytoestrogens of red clover extract to re-densify skin, shea butter, vitamin E and sweet almond oil to moisturise and soften skin.
Mavala Dash & Splash, Magnetic Purple
Mavala is embracing colour in a big way this summer with it’s new collection of bold and colours. These nail colours (£5.20) are free from harmful ingredients such as parabens, formaldehydes, camphor, cellophane, animal ingredients and heavy metals.
Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cleanser
This super moisturizing cleanser gently removes makeup, dirt, oil and impurities without stripping skin of its glowy radiance or essential moisture. Goat’s milk is amazing at soothing dry, sensitive skin with natural milk proteins. Your skin will feel cleansed and purified, without feeling tight.
ELEMIS Peptide4 Adaptive Day Cream
This day cream (£50) is a moisturiser and primer in one. It adapts to your skin’s needs throughout the day, ensuring a flawless-looking complexion from dawn to dusk. Swiss botanical extracts including Butterfly Bush, Thyme and Mallow also help to maintain the skin’s natural defences against the environment.
GOTTEX Belle Fleur Swimsuit and Bikini
This gorgeous one-piece (£120) features adjustable straps, soft moulded foam cups for shape and support, and a low cut scooped back. It is also lined to ensure comfort and a smooth, shaped fit. There is also a bikini (£110) available in the same print!
GOTTEX Sakura Bikini
This halter bikini (£75 for the top, £45 for the bottoms) from GOTTEX features a gorgeous blossom pattern, a wonderful tribute to the traditional fashion of Japan. It also has soft removable cups and adjustable straps, giving you the best fit possible.
Mahabis Classic Slipper Collection
Mahabis have redesigned the humble slipper by giving it a sneaker sole, so it can be worn both indoors and out. Their super comfy slippers are inspired by Scandinavian design, with a sleek minimalist style. They have just released a new pastel range of their classic slipper, including this gorgeous perola purple colour (£79).
