Luxury Body Creams We Love

Midlife can be a battle at times. A beauty product won’t fix that, but a bit of pampering can pause the stresses and provide some calm. And we all deserve that. A luxury body cream is the perfect place to start.

BEST FOR SCIENTIFIC KNOWHOW: Augustinus Bader The Body Cream, £130


Professor Augustinus Bader’s skincare gained a cult following in just one year due to its revolutionary anti-ageing properties.

Using stem-cell technology, amino acids and high-grade vitamins, it firms, plumps and nourishes.

BEST FOR HORMONE BALANCING: Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Firming Crème Riche, £37


Ren’s signature Rose Otto oil has hydrating, antibacterial and antidepressant properties. It’s known as the ‘feminine oil’ as it works to balance your hormones. Use it when you need to soothe your mind as much as your skin.
