Ekia Gel Lift Paupieres – Eyelid Lifting Serum includes certified organic Dragon’s Blood Sap derived from the Amazon with extracts of red sea plant to lift the eyelid area and sea holly extract to firm the skin around the eyelid area.

We liked using this just before going to bed and letting the serum sink in. In the morning our reviewers eyes did not feel so puffy or look tired. Only a tiny amount is needed so this little tube will go a long way. (15ml) £38.29
Khadi Amla Shampoo Volume & Gloss £11.90
What makes the Khadi Amla shampoo so unique? It contains a blend of sweet almond oil and wheat proteins, which help to repair damaged hair and promote hair growth. Hair is made up mostly of proteins and it is the proteins in wheat that repair damaged hair follicles by lifting the hair, whilst reducing small holes in the lengths of hair shafts and fortifying hair cells. Wheat proteins also retain moisture, giving hair added fullness.
Amla is a type of gooseberry that is renowned for its ability to improve the strength for hair, it is packed full of vitamin C and is a rich source of essential fatty acids that serve to keep the hair follicles strong and nourish the hair from the roots.
We loved this subtle shampoo. Our felt shiny and naturally clean after – and it has to be the best smelling shampoo ever!
Khadi shampoos are free from SLS and are available at independent pharmacies across the UK and Ireland, as well as online at www.khadihair.co.uk
ORGANii Organic Argan Shower Gel 300ml (£5.95)
Argan is considered a miracle oil as it is rich in vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant and essential in maintaining healthy skin. This warming, comforting shower gel not only looks beautiful in the bathroom cupboard, but also nourishes the skin, leaving it glowing and silky soft to touch.
