It’s the holidays! In the past two weeks, we’ve rounded up ways to glam up your festive looks this party season (it only happens once a year, live it up!). Although, before all the late nights and party makeup can get to you, we’ve also put together another game plan for winding down post-party.

For worry-free late nights, here are 6 essentials for getting unready — from cleansing to masking and getting a good night’s sleep! 

1. Foreo Picture Perfect Set (Foreo Luna 3 + Serum Serum Serum)


There’s something exceptionally rejuvenating about washing your face after a long day and Foreo’s unparalleled cleansing abilities need no introduction. Made entirely of the softest silicone, Luna 3 offers T-sonic pulsations at 16 intensities for a thorough but gentle cleanse. We can’t think of a better way to take off all the dirt, sebum and leftover makeup! 

Better yet — give your Luna 3 routine a boost with Foreo’s micro-capsule infused Serum Serum Serum. Use this lightweight, superbly moisturising antioxidant-rich formula together with Luna 3’s firming massage mode to restore healthy, radiant skin! 

2. Dr Jart Cicapair Calming Mask + Gel Cream

Centella asiatica has been all the rage in skincare and for the right reasons. The powerful herb is known for its powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Pop on the Dr Jart Cicapair Calming Mask to soothe sensitive and irritated skin; especially if all that partying and drinks have started to take their toll!

Fortify your skin barrier further with the ultra-light and hydrating Calming Gel Cream to comfort, repair and strengthen stressed skin.  

3. Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment (Simply Rose)


Anyone else reserves their ultra-matte, ultra long-wearing lippies just for Christmas? Matte lips are pretty much holiday classics themselves; be it for weathering through the late night festivities or staying on throughout a Christmas dinner. Unfortunately, if the more durable but drier matte formulas are making your lips feel chapped (horrors), this super nourishing Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment is the S.O.S you need. Enriched with coconut oil, lemon butter and SPF 30, layer on the Butterstick to keep your puckers soft, smooth and moisturised!

4. Crabtree & Evelyn Buff + Invigorate Body Bar


First off, this smells heavenly. The Buff + Invigorate Body Bar is a nifty, multi-tasking wonder that both cleanses and gently exfoliates. Now you can streamline your shower with no compromises. Infused with blackcurrant oil, apple fibre and bamboo stem, we can think of so many ways to incorporate this body bar into your pre-party routine or post-party wind down. Give yourself a body buffing before a big night and indulge in a soft scrub after — so indulgent!

5. Coco & Eve Like A Virgin Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque


We know you’ll love this one. Give your tresses some TLC after all that styling, especially if the heat and hair spray have low-key fried your mane. This Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque is a 5-in-1 treatment to rescue dry, damaged hair, deeply condition, smooth and deliver a fabulous shine. Evenly distribute a liberal amount throughout towel dried hair and leave on for 10 minutes (or even overnight) to restore lustrous, healthy hair.

6. Thisworks Sleep In Progress Deep Sleep Pillow Spray + Sleep Balm


And finally, for a perfect night’s sleep. Mist the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and drift off in the relaxing blend of Lavender, Vetivert and Camomile essential oils. The similarly scented Sleep Balm is an excellent complement, massage into your pulse points and snuggle up for another long night, the best kind. 

It’s the time of the year again! The jolly season is finally upon us, stay tuned for our line-up of festive articles for all your Christmas needs, wants and vibes. Stay merry!

Take care,
