Guys! I have some serious beauty news to share. And it’s worth so much more than my usual “Catches of the day”. A couple of weeks ago, lovely Grace from BE.

What: Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask
Why: I got to know the power of the antibacterial manuka honey when travelling in New Zealand. So, when I heard about a manuka honey face mask, I had to try it. Intensely moisturising, cleansing, antioxidising *and* it’s organic *and* it smells amazing. Will definitely buy again!
