For naturally glowy skin: Tatcha The Rice Wash Cleanser

Fans of Tatcha’s exquisite range of Rice Polish Enzyme Powders will be pleased to know that they’ve got a new face cleanser made from similarly potent Japanese superfoods. The cleanser’s key ingredient is Hadasei-3, a fermented and antioxiant-rich essence, that helps to restore a healthy protective skin barrier. The fomulation includes Japanese algae and hyaluronic acid for moistrure retention, as well as Akita rice powder that gently exfoliates the skin for a natural glow. Made via a double fermentation process, the pH-neutral cleanser purifies skin while leaving it soft and plump.

The scent that celebrates self-expression: Marc Jacobs Perfect Eau de Parfum

If you fancy floral scents that will make heads turn, Marc Jacobs’ new Perfect hits the mark. Paying homage to his personal mantra “I am perfect as I am,” the perfume opens with vibrant rhubarb and daffodil notes, before revealing comforting nores of almond milk. The finish is a soft dry down of cedarwood and cashmeran. Designed to bring out the wearer’s personality, the perfume is at once harmonious yet unconventional, with warm florals and soothing notes coming through at once. It also doesn’t hurt that the bottle’s adorned with adorable trinkets like a shoe, a banana, and a dice.
