New Products: Aromatherapy Associates - NARS - La Prairie - This Works

‘Go on spoil yourself’, is the theme for my top picks from products launched this week. That’s because all the items I’m featuring today are gorgeous treats, though you're going to need very deep pockets indeed if you want to buy one in particular!

Aromatherapy Associates - De-Stress Massage & Body Oil (Out 1st April)

Aromatherapy Associates, who make the best bath oils going in my opinion, have expanded their De-Stress Muscle range with the launch of a massage and body oil. De-Stress Massage & Body Oil is intended as a soothing treatment with anti-inflammatory benefits to help ease muscular aches and pains. It combines a blend of arnica, lavender and rosemary to improve circulation and ginger to help warm overworked and tired muscles. Priced at £41 for 100ml, it will be on counter from 1st April at Aromatherapy Associates, Liberty, Heals, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason. More on Aromatherapy Associates here.





NARS – Artistry Brush Collection (Out 1st April) 


April 1st also sees the launch of this 16 piece Artistry Brush Collection from NARS. Drawing on NARS’ makeup artistry heritage, this collection features a design conceived by founder and creative director Fran├žois Nars and Fabien Baron, of New York design firm Baron & Baron. Each brush is said to be designed with finest quality hairs and delicately weighted to provide the necessary balance for a professional and precise makeup application. The brushes and packaging feature the iconic matte black finish with sharp debossed logo and signature pop of red. Prices start at £21 each for the Precision Blending Brush, Brow Defining Brush and Precision Lip Brush. The collection will be available exclusively at Selfridges from 1st April, then nationwide from 15th April. More on NARS here.

La Prairie – Cellular Radiance Night Cream (Out 1st June)

Ultra luxury Swiss skincare brand La Prairie have completed their Cellular Radiance collection with the launch of Cellular Radiance Night Cream. The cream is designed to renew and restore skin’s youthful glow and plumpness whilst you sleep, which is when skin goes into repair mode. The formula includes anti-ageing peptides, as well as extracts of wild yam and rye seed to boost moisture levels and improve skin elasticity. Meanwhile, a moisture binding complex which is said to be similar to that found naturally in skin includes the ingredients Saccharide Isomerate, Sunflower Seed Oil Unsaponifiables, Shea Butter, Raspberry Butter and Hyaluronic Acid. On counter from 1st June priced at (brace yourself) £430 for 50ml. Stockists will include Harrods, Selfridges, House of Fraser and Fenwick. More on La Prairie here.


This Works – Perfect Cleavage Firming Lotion (Out 7th April)

This is a reformulation of This Works’ Perfect Cleavage Firming Lotion, now containing extra ingredients to treat very sensitive skin. Still enriched with a cocktail of anti-ageing extracts such as larch to tighten, algae to soothe and rose to revitalise and renew, Perfect Cleavage Firming Lotion now includes the addition of comfrey root to help boost cell renewal and calming hydration, as well as slow release vitamin c to brighten and tackle pigmentation issues. This Works have also introduced a lighter fragrance to the formula following panel testing. Priced at £38 for 60ml, it will on counter from 7th April at This Works here and its usual stockists. 



  1. Wow, this is all very expensive. The brushes start at £21 each!!!! I think I'll find something cheaper which is going to be just as good!!! :)
    Thank you, Tracey, for your beautiful words on my last blog post! Have a great weekend!!!

    1. Yep, it is the deluxe edition! Though I do think you often get what you pay for. I thought AA bath oils were expensive until I tried them. You only need a few drops in your bath water and they fill the room with such a rich aroma. Their miniatures do last. No probs about the comments. I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it :).You too have a good weekend. Tx

  2. Thanks for stopping by Behind the Mirror! I always love La Prairie. They make really great and consistent products. The price points are up there, but I have never been disappointed. Looking forward to their new Cellular Radiance Night Cream.

    1. Thanks for interacting. Yep, very expensive but like you say if it works for you then justifying the expense becomes much easier.

  3. I love aromatherapy associates, they are wonderful for when you want to feel pampered x

    1. So do I. Their bath and shower oils are amazing. They last ages and have such a rich aroma don't they :)
