If You're a Fan of Le Labo Santal 33, You'll Love These Perfumes Just as Much

There’s no doubt that Le Labo’s widely adored fragrance Santal 33 is one of the most defining scents of the last decade. From Alexa Chung to Justin Bieber, some of the most iconic celebrities have professed their love for the unisex scent. And in all honesty, I’d go as far as to say that it was Santal 33 that put unisex fragrances back on the map. Before it, the offering of unisex scents didn’t stretch far beyond Calvin Klein’s CK One.

Your Body Needs a Skincare Regimen Too, and These Products Mean Business

I get it, it can feel like enough of a chore just picking up your facial cleanser to take your makeup off (because we’re absolutely, categorically not using skin and earth-damaging face wipes any more, right?), let alone adding in any extra steps to your beauty routine, but hear me out on this. While committing to caring for the skin on your face is absolute priority (the face is constantly exposed to changing temperatures, dirt, bacteria and pollution throughout the day), the skin on the rest of your body requires some TLC too.And I’m talking real TLC, not just a 99p shower gel and some fruity moisturiser when your legs are looking a little scaly. Just like the skin on your face, the skin on your body can suffer if you’re not looking after it correctly and using the right products. To ...
