New brands on bh
Novellus Skin Care is a five product system which aims to offer maximum results with minimum daily commitment (ideal!).

Glow Lab natural skin care was founded on the philosophy that every woman deserves effective skin care at a price that makes it easy to treat herself every day, and we are 100 per cent in agreeance. Their Facial Moisturiser is a fave of ours - it uses a powerful blend of macadamia, rosehip seed oil, shea butter and vitamin E to soothe and protect skin.

Maui Moisture hair care is inspired by handpicked and handcrafted ingredients found on tropical islands, leaving out the nasties to create a range that leaves hair moisturised, mended and healthy. We seriously rate their Maui Moisture Curl Quench + Coconut Oil Curl Smoothie - it’s a creamy hair mask infused with rich coconut oil and papaya butter to help detangle, de-frizz and define curls.
