Travel tip: If you’re planning a trip to London, go to the Neal’s Yard Remedies stores on King’s Road or even prettier at Covent Garden to stock up on products, have some tea and get a facial in their in-house spa. Two of my favorite products right now are from Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Wild Rose line:

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm
Wild Rose Beauty Balm contains a mix of different oils and promises to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish at the same time depending on how you use it. I bought it just before my flight back to New York and couldn’t wait to try it, from all the travelling and too little sleep my face felt horrible: it was dry and full blemishes. So I applied it during the flight and my face felt soft and moisturized even after eight hours of flying. The balm comes with a muslin cloth to use for the oil cleansing method. Following the three-step system just before going to bed helps cleaning out your pores and softening and tighten your skin. With $70 (£37 if you are in the UK) it is on the pricey side, but definitely worth it!

Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Elixir
A blend of wild rose hip oil full of vitamin C, turmeric to brighten, frankincense to rejuvenate, and geranium to calm the skin make this elixir a special treat for your skin. I use it evening and morning after cleansing my face and neck. It is £45.50 if you’re in the UK and $77 in the US.
