There are so many gorgeous products to treat ourselves to this autumn, and if like us at H&N Magazine you’re always buying the latest products in the shops, then we can definitely help with a few suggestions of where to go and what to buy. Our beauty writer, Rachel McAlley has tried and tested a few beauty products including lip balms, nail products, cosmetics, eye creams, face oils and body creams. Here are some of her standout favourites;

RosehipPLUS™ Organic Rosehip Oil
This luxury oil contains naturally occurring bioflavonoids and essential fatty acids. Bioflavonoids act as potent antioxidants, helping to reduce free radical damage in the skin and reduce the appearance of imperfections and stretch marks. The essential fatty acids (Omega 3, 6 and 9) in the oil help to keep the skin hydrated, moisturised and younger looking. And, we’ve heard on the grapevine that the Duchess of Cambridge is a fan of using rosehip oils in her daily routine, which means we are now automatically fans ourselves at H&N Magazine.
Priced at £25 for 30ml of RosehipPLUS™ Organic Rosehip Oil, available online from www.treatyourskin.com
Sukin Super Greens Body Contouring Crème
Australia’s number one natural skincare brand has recently included a couple of new additions into the successful Super Greens range, and our favourite is the body crème. We’re a sucker for anything with super green qualities, and this is no exception.
The Body Contouring Crème by Sukin harnesses the natural slimming properties of Stevia and Mate leaves to help reduce the appearance of cellulite and keep skin looking smooth and toned. Combined with a detoxifying blend of Kale, Spirulina, Chlorella and Parsley, the antioxidant and vitamin rich formulation is enhanced further with Moringa Oil and Black Seed Extract to help nourish the skin. Coenzyme Q10, Coconut Oil, Macadamia and Shea Butter replenish the moisture barrier so skin is left looking conditioned.
