Here’s a look at what you’ll find inside the Recharge & Refresh OK! Beauty Box…
Monu Skin Hydrating Mask, 50ml full size, worth £25.95
Once temperatures drop, skin can start feeling more dry, and this rich, creamy face mask is just the thing to comfort and condition dehydrated or sensitive complexions.
How to use: Apply a thick layer and leave on for 10-15 minutes for a quick skin pick-me-up, or for extra nourishment massage in and leave on overnight. Any leftovers can also be rubbed into hands or feet.
The benefits: This mask contains evening primrose oil, which is high in fatty acids and helps to support and strengthen the skin’s natural moisture barrier. It’s also super nourishing thanks to the addition of royal jelly, which is rich in vitamins and minerals. The result is a complexion that looks and feels cleansed, calm and conditioned.
Eyeko Black Magic: Cocoa Edit Pencil Eyeliner in Brown, full size, worth £16
No makeup bag is complete without a brown eyeliner pencil! This one has a twist-up lead with a built-in sharpener and sponge, allowing you to create both precise lines and smudgy, smokey eye makeup looks. This rich cocoa shade is a softer alternative to black and will suit everybody.
The benefits: No more need to scrabble around trying to find a pencil sharpener and a makeup brush, as this handily has both tucked inside! The texture of the lead is creamy and easily blendable, yet sets to a waterproof finish that will stay put for up to eight hours.
Figs & Rouge Fortify Anti-Pollution & Blue Light Protection Serum, 30ml full size, worth £42
You’re probably well aware of the negative effects the sun has on the skin, but did you know that blue light from screens and electronic devices can also be damaging? No need to immediately cancel your Netflix subscription, however – instead apply this lightweight serum each morning to defend against the potentially ageing effects of blue light and other pollutants.
How to use: After cleansing, apply 2-3 drops over your entire face and allow to dry. Then follow up with your daily facial moisturiser.
The benefits: Non-greasy and quickly absorbed, this serum is packed full of ingredients to strengthen the skin and protect against environmental damage, plus niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to smooth and hydrate.
Skin Chemists Youth Series Green Caviar Eye Serum, 15ml full size, worth £24.90
The eye area is where the first signs of ageing typically appear, and adding a hydrating eye cream into your skincare routine can make a real difference. This one has a lovely silky, gel-like texture that also makes a great base for makeup.
How to use: Apply to the eye area morning and night using your ring finger.
The benefits: Containing plant-based actives like green caviar extract and natural glycerin, this will improve the skin’s hydration and elasticity, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel, 50ml travel size, worth £5.50
Give your body a treat this autumn too with this luxurious shower gel, which turns into a rich foam texture when it comes into contact with water. Featuring a delicate cherry blossom scent that will turn your morning shower into a spa-like experience.
The benefits: The foamy formula contains rice milk, known for its skin-softening properties. This 50ml bottle is perfect for travelling, too.
Inside your box you’ll also find a voucher for two free copies of OK! Magazine (worth £6) – the perfect place to catch up on all the new season trends.
