Best ‘spa in a jar’ products: The ultimate one-stop-shop beauty bits on the market

2 months ago

I am constantly updating my skincare routine with the latest revolutionary products, wanting to get the most of the ingredients I put on my face.

But sometimes a 10-step skincare routine after your nightly shower can do you more harm than good by stripping your skin of its essential oils and causing dryness and inflammation.

The best way forward is to choose products that do more than one thing, and leave you feeling like you’ve just had a luxury facial in the confines of your home bathroom.

These star products can be called “spa in a jar”.

And Best Picks has summarised the best of these heavyweights for you to invest in next time you’re shopping for a one-stop-shop beauty winner.

Naturium’s Flash Facial is an innovative treatment meant to be used in between your first and second cleanse.

Developed to be used on either dry or damp skin, this mask is formulated with glycolic acid, vegan lactic acid and biodegradable cellulose to resurface and refine skin.

It instantly leaves skin feeling softer, smoother and glowing, and for less than half the cost of a professional facial. Who can complain about that?

A little goes a long way with this product, so after you apply leave it on for up to five minutes before gently massaging it away.

For best results use it one or two times a week.

Indulge and detoxify your skin with this all-in-one mask.

An at-home facial that is just as good as the spa, this fortifying green mask is packed with essential vitamins and minerals to defy the look of dullness, fatigue and signs of damage.

It is rich in antioxidant super fruits and yogurt-based probiotics that support skin’s naturally occurring flora for optimal balance.

Brazilian green clay and activated charcoal purifies pores, leaving the skin clean, smooth and refined.

The mask is rich in dilo oil and Ngi grass, which will rejuvenate skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Skin is deeply nourished and repaired, hydration of the epidermis is significantly improved over time which results in firmer, hydrated skin.

And just wait until you smell this product — it’s like you’re on a tropical holiday everyday.

L’Occitane’s Immortelle range is truly luxury personified and you won’t be disappointed by the long term effects of this serum.

Immortelle Reset Serum helps your skin by smoothing out fine lines, giving it a healthy glow and allowing it to soothe and recover from daily stress factors.

It contains 10x more Immortelle essential oil than the previous formulation of the product, which is known for its strong anti-ageing and antioxidant properties.

It’s also formulated with the new patented Immortelle Soothing Molecule which soothes the skin from redness and tightness, as well as boosts its recovery.

The unique oil-in-serum contains 3,000 golden bubbles that preserve the powerful immortelle essential oil within them.

They melt into your skin leaving a non-greasy, lightweight feel. Perfect for your next DIY spa experience.

Want to narrow down your serums to just one? The Quartet is just about the only product you’ll need.

It’s a multi-peptide moisturiser formulated with — you guessed it — a quartet of hydrators and superior soothers to cushion skin against the drying effects of daily life.

Ceramides, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and peptides work together to help calm, nourish and restore even the most vulnerable of skin barriers.

I’ve been using it at night as my final skincare step and I’ve already found it to be super nourishing and soothing. It’s a worthy investment from the range.…Read more by Arthur Bolly
