From The Editor: Embracing a Christmas Like No Other

   It’s been quite the year.

At Naturisimo, we swear by moments of stillness and calm as a way to improve our wellbeing, but even we have felt pushed to our limits by the events of 2020. Unable even to remedy the situation with some much-needed time with loved ones, it’s truly been a year like no other.

It’s hard to know how to respond at a time like this. We’ve been armed and ready to answer the huge demand for hand sanitisers, immune-boosting supplements and home-cleaning solutions. But there has also been a call for ways to stay mindful and grounded during such a tumultuous period in our lives. And as time drags on, more and more of us are searching for ways to find peace in the monotonous nature of ‘staying home’.

So while it felt somewhat strange to be putting preparations in place for the festive season during such an uncertain time, we thought it may also be an opportunity to provide you with an answer to what this year has called for; moments of comfort and self-love. If we can’t go out and celebrate, then why not give ourselves the gift of guilt-free indulgence? And share that gift with others, so we can feel a sense of togetherness, even if from afar.

The beauty of the product range we have so lovingly curated over the years is that it caters for exactly this. We pride ourselves on the products we sell and the moments they provide for many in their everyday lives. Some practical, but some slightly more special. It’s those truly exceptional products we want to share with you right now.

Indulgence: “The act or practice of indulging. The gratification of desire. Catering to someone’s mood or whim.”

Whether you want to create an intimate, loving moment with someone special, or treat yourself to a truly elevated experience, we have searched our range for the products that embody the term ‘ultimate indulgence’. Armed with our expertise in the clean beauty industry, we send this guide as a way to lovingly share our wisdom with you. To impart a luxurious moment of serenity that we can all share in.

So here it is. Tried, tested and reviewed by us. Our guide to guilt-free indulgence, and embracing a unique festive period we’ll (hopefully) never experience again.

A lack of Christmas parties doesn’t have to mean complete despair! What if we used this quieter festive period to experience a heavenly skincare ritual we might never have tried before?

Not all skincare is created equally. Some are functional, effective and reliable. But there are some products in particular that have the ability to transform your daily regime into something akin to paradise.

There’s nothing like a spa day to reset our body and minds. At Naturisimo, we will certainly be missing our annual team visit to the spa. But, we have the next best thing! These bodycare products have been raved about in the office for years, and if we can’t go to the spa…well, then we will bring the spa to us.

Because moments of true indulgence go beyond what we put onto our skin, we have rounded up our favourite products for creating peace and tranquility within our indoor sanctuaries.
