Fresh start

With the festive season done and dusted, normal life must resume. Make the transition a little more pleasurable with these luxurious pampering products from The Royal Exchange

02 January, 2019

With the excesses of the party season behind us, it’s time to ease into the new year. Soak away the strains of overindulgence and frantic social activity with Bamford’s Geranium Bath Oil – a skin-softening and enchantingly aromatic fusion of non-foaming oils that diffuse naturally in warm bath water. Vitamin-rich sweet almond and apricot kernel oil (high in nourishing oleic acid) restore your skin’s natural glow while essential oils of geranium, lavender, peppermint and tonka revitalise body and mind. With 83 per cent organic ingredients, it’s the perfect way to restore a little natural balance.

For an equally fragrant and relaxing bath time, luxuriate in L’Occitane’s Verbena Foaming Bath. Soothing and softening, the aromatic verbena extract is blended by L’Occitane’s scientists with coconut oil to create a silky foaming bubble bath, leaving your skin with a light lemon fragrance redolent of summer in Provence.

To add a bolder fragrance, Penhaligon’s Belgravia Chypre Eau de Parfum is rich and sophisticated, with bergamot, oak moss and patchouli combined with a surprising inflection of raspberry, pink pepper and rose.

With all these new pampering products in your arsenal, you’ll need something to carry them in when you head off on adventures new. SageBrown’s Compact Wash Bag comes in full grain or crocodile skin-textured calf leather, and is available in an array of colours. Ideal for overnight trips, the perfectly formed wash bag features a top opening with an extended zip, which fastens neatly to the sides with discreet magnets. Lined with waterproof fabric, the inside has a large single compartment with a zip pocket to store your essentials. With durable piped edges, it makes a faithful travel companion. Make it truly yours using SageBrown’s personalisation service, adding your initials to the front of the bag in your chosen colour and embossing type.

These products are the perfect way to start afresh, and can all be found, alongside many more, at The Royal Exchange.
