Sond Skincare, available from www.sondskin.co.uk

Sond believe that everyone should feel good about their skin. Their aim is to help those with sensitive skin which is why we are at the forefront of Alkaline & Silica products.

Alkaline refers to the pH level. Water has a neutral pH of 7, while most skin care products have a lower pH of around 5.5, and our new range of products have a pH of 7.3 which is just slightly higher than water. Higher alkaline means there is more oxygen in a liquid which ensures skin cells absorb more water, improves blood flow, increases cells ability to regenerate more effectively and glowing skin.

Sond skincare products are a great gift for anyone who wants an easy skincare routine, and they have a range suitable for anyone from serum, to supplements.


The Slender blend, from £13.99, available from www.proteinworld.com. Shop here.

For the health conscious woman in your life, or simply to help them kick start their New Years resolution of getting into shape, the Slender blend would make the perfect gift!

Not only that, it tastes delicious which helps!!
