These brands are rewriting the ingredients rules and focusing on the really good stuff…When hotelier Irene Forte started working on her own skincare line, it was essential to her that she gather most of her ingredients from the organic farms around her family’s Sicilian Verdura resort. What she can’t harness there, she finds local to her skincare lab in northern Italy, where she works with a chemist who ‘was the first to extract melatonin from plants and resveratrol from grapes’. And, because Irene still wanted her products to smell luscious, she uses natural fragrances but ‘purifies them in the lab to remove allergens such as linalool and citronella’. Try the Pomegranate Face Mask.

AGE-DEFYING PISTACHIO FACE MASK

July 2019

Billed as “the Mediterranean diet for skin”, the 32-product Irene Forte collection features own-grown olive oil, nuts, herbs and fruit brought together with oligomineral water from Sicily’s Madonie Regional Natural Park… I can recommend the deliciously milky Almond Face Scrub (£69 for 50ml); it gently smooths and nourishes dry complexions using avocado and olive oils in combination with almond and hazelnut granules. Another standout is the Rose Face Oil (£99 for 30ml), whose freshness surprised me; it’s gloriously light-feeling but left my skin wonderfully soft.

11 OF THE BEST LIP BALMS FOR DRY LIPS

HYDRATING PISTACHIO LIP BALM

April 2019

What we loved about this scrub is that it packs enough of a punch to still be described as an exfoliant, but it’s rich and creamy enough for it to not be aggressive like most. There’s a faint scent to it, not so surprisingly of almonds. Olive oil and avocado oil balance out the exfoliation from the tiny kernels in the mix. A big wallop of aloe vera also helps in the nourishing department. This is a great one to reach for if you want a weekly deep cleanse with a lovely moisturising undertone.
