One thing that perfectly suits this time of year is cosying up in front of a fire, with some candles lighting, a cup of tea ready to go and some online shopping. And, have we got a treat for you! We have up to 15% off our Holy Grail skincare products especially for you.

Although we had to make a few difficult decisions, here are 10 of our absolute favourite products that have up to 15% off. So whether you’re shopping for yourself or a fellow skincare fanatic, get ready for a bargain - or two.

Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas+ 60 Caps

If you haven’t yet tried, or even heard of the Advanced Nutrition supplements, it’s time to add these to your must-buy list straight away. The Skin Omegas+ is a must for anyone and everyone, because they contain EPA, an important Omega 3 fatty acid,  to deeply hydrate the skin and body from within, head to toe, which is essential when we move into the colder months.

When taken regularly, (ideally, take two soft gels daily) they are proven to increase skin's smoothness, elasticity, hydration and also help to decrease wrinkle depth in the skin.

The presence of Vitamin A in the omegas helps with the healing, resurfacing and strengthening of the skin, to achieve optimum skin health.

Plus, on top of caring for your skin, Advanced Nutrition Programme has a 'Friend of the Sea' certificate and is passionate about sustainability when harvesting, transporting and manufacturing Omegas. So it’s a win-win for you, your skin, and the environment.
