It’s 25% off Elemis through their website today. I like Elemis products a LOT and my two favourites are:
This cleansing balm – I had a little tester pot of this and scraped it clean. I love a cleansing balm anyway but there is something super luxurious and just right about this one.
This SOS Emergency cream is absolutely terrific. I don’t know why it isn’t more famous – it soothes most things from redness to angry patches of skin, dryness and general skin bumfuckery. It is £57 and worth every penny so doubly worth every penny if it is only £42.75. I get a new bottle every year and use sparingly, mixing a little in with my usual night cream if I need to.
NET A PORTER
Net a Porter are having this slightly confusing “Private sale”, which I had thought you needed to be an existing customer to be part of . This may have been the case at the beginning but it looks now like you just need to sign up and create an account (like with Selfridges) in order to take advantage of the 25% off, which is really quite generous.
I would be tempted to get this weird-looking AirPod thing for a make-up fanatic. I have never tried it but it must be fabulous.
Or this Lanolips set – I am a huge fan of Lanolips, it’s the most fantastic, hard-working gunk.
Or perhaps something wonderful from Aesop for the MiL?
One for Prince Harry fans. (Or When Harry met Sally perhaps.)
My top tip for everyone is make all your accessories are BRIGHT. A YELLOW purse, a NEON Oyster/bank card holder, a GOLD kindle cover, a PINK iPhone cover – so you can glance across the room/into your bag and immediately identify your essentials.
Anyway you get the idea. I’m sure you’ve been shopping before.
I have contacted Hush about their Black Friday plans and no reply yet. It’s not looking great, but stranger things have happened than Hush going into sale so stay tuned.
Coming up later today – a handbag guide. I get a lot of questions from readers about what handbag they should want (I ask myself the same question often, too) and so I thought I’d do a handy guide to the ones I think are best, to suit all budgets.
If you have a handbag you love, which is still available, please do leave a comment in the box to tell us about it, what you use it for and why you love it.
