Glow Recipe Hey You, You’re A Bright Light Gift Set


Give the gift of radiant, healthy skin this Christmas with Glow Recipe’s Hey You, You’re A Bright Light gift set.

Beautifully presented in a pastel pink gift box you’ll find three products to help create a brighter, more even toned complexion.



Together, the trio help to visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots and dark circles while offering superior hydration for skin that practically glows with radiance.

The first fruity little gem that’ll set you on the path to beautiful skin is the Glow Recipe Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum.

This visibly brightening, silky serum targets dark spots and hyperpigmentation with five forms of vitamin C, guava, and tranexamic along with ferulic acids for visibly glowing, even-toned skin.



Delivering an effective result with minimal irritation, the encapsulated time-release vitamin C (formulated to remain stable with time) combines with vitamin C-rich guava and visibly brightening tranexamic acid to visibly lighten dark spots and help keep future ones from appearing.

Wonderfully lightweight and silky in texture, the serum is quickly absorbed without a trace, leaving your skin feeling toned and comfortable.

Take your glow to the next level by following the serum with the gorgeous Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream.

This beautiful, wonderfully light cream locks in hydration for plump, bouncy, dewy looking skin.



Featuring an addictive whipped gel- cream texture,  the formula contains brightening plum, hydrating multi-molecular-weighted hyaluronic acid, balancing willowherb and peptide polyglutamic acid to lock in moisture and boost the effects of the hyaluronic acid.

Perfect for all skin types though particularly combination/oily complexions, the cream offers serious hydration without flooding your skin or leaving it feeling heavy.

Finally, complete your three-step routine with the Glow Recipe Guava Vitamin C Bright-Eye Gel Cream.

This potent yet gentle eye cream visibly reduces the appearance of dark circles, depuffs the entire area and deeply hydrates for brighter, younger looking eyes.



This targeted cream features a 10% encapsulated vitamin C complex to lift and brighten the skin around the eye area while a 3% niacinamide blend brightens dark circles and evens out tone.

A duo of peptides and green caffeine help to reduce puffiness by aiding drainage and firming the delicate skin around the eye socket for a visibly more awake appearance.

Silky and light yet rich and comforting in texture, skin feels instantly soothed and smooth, making it the perfect primer for the eye area prior to makeup application.



Whether you are an established Glow Recipe fan or a newbie to the brand, this gift set gives you the opportunity to experience three of their iconic products without committing to purchasing three separate full size products; try before you buy, if you will!

Glow Recipe’s Hey You, You’re a Bright Light gift set is available now from Sephora and costs £44.30.

Philosophy Cinnamon Sugared Apples Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath


From hereon in you’ll find me slowly easing myself into the Christmas spirit, and I’ve begun by indulging in one of my favourite festive traditions.

Each year I wait eagerly to discover what the new limited edition Philosophy Festive scents will be and this year they’ve created what could be my all-time favourite.

Please give a warm welcome to the new Cinnamon Sugared Apples Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath.


Now, say what you want about bubble baths and shower gels, but for me, Philosophy are the crème de la crème at creating the most deliciously sumptuous bathing products.

Exquisitely scented, luxurious in texture and capable of producing a tub full of plentiful, frothy bubbles, they are my go-to-bathing brand of choice.

As always there are a several limited edition festive fragrances available, Skating In The Snow, Under The Mistletoe, Snow Angel and Candy Cane being the others.


Skating In The Snow features soft notes of sweet jasmine, offering a fresh, floral experience.

Under the Mistletoe stays with the floral vibes with delicate violet blossoms and lily of the valley, Snow Angel boasts sparkling notes of crisp fuji apple and fresh air mingling with white flower while Candy Cane boats gourmand notes of crisp peppermint blended with sweet vanilla.

But. For me, it is all about Cinnamon Sugared Apples.



The rich, golden caramel-esq gel swirls inside the statuesque bottle with black cap inviting you to unleash its addictive aroma.

This wonderfully warming and comforting scent is underpinned with the spicy warmth that emanates from cinnamon.

Meanwhile, soft, sweet notes of caramelised sugar mingle with the crisp, sweetness of fresh, juicy apples creating a deliciously decadent festive aroma that cocoons you in a sense of comfort, relaxation and peace.



A multi-tasking superhero, you can use this rich, creamy yet gentle formula as a shampoo, shower gel or bubble bath, meaning you can totally layer your scent!

The only problem? You’ll find yourself never wanting to leave the bath again!
