Pai Moisturisers - Repackaged and Resized



It's not often that a brand listens to the feedback of its customers and actually makes a tangible effort to remedy issues. However, British skincare brand, Pai, has done just this.

If you read my review of their Chamomile and Rosehip Calming Day Cream* you'll remember the only black mark against the product was the frustrating bottle that wouldn't relinquish its contents.

Thankfully for my newly-crisped winter skin, Pai contacted me to share the news that they have repackaged all of their moisturisers in frosted glass containers with airless pumps and increased the sizes from 30 ml to 50 ml. They are also fully recyclable.

The result is altogether more weighty and luxe, and the new design means the precious ingredients are protected from degrading. I'm impressed with Pai for listening to what their customers want. If you appreciate quality British-made products from an independent company using superior ingredients and clear labelling, I suggest you check them out.

The new style moisturisers are available on paiskincare.com and cost £32. (Previously £24 for 30ml.)

Hint of Christmas – Best Buys


Forget the season of good will; Christmas is a divider. Most people either love it or hate it. I don't advocate decorating the house on November 1st, buying 'hilarious' Christmas jumpers and spray-snowing your windows, but a few subtly seasonal purchases can help set the mood for winter. Anything that perks up six months of cold weather is a bonus in my book. With this in mind, I've put together a bit of wintery inspiration for those who feel the festive spirit but fear the associated onslaught of tat. From the perfect Mac Lady Danger dupe to a stripy dish for your christmas crisps.

Bagsy the reindeer leggings.
