Beautifying oneself should be a harmonising experience and no brand does this better than Mauli Rituals – which encompasses a kind and clean philosophy to its core. Its Supreme Skin Rose Mist, £38, is one of its hero products and is a joy to use.
Packed with natural ingredients – such as turmeric, honeysuckle, enhanced with skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and steam distilled rose water – it hydrates, tones and nourishes even the most sensitive skin. Vegan and 100% natural, it is free from nasties and drenches skin in moisture to promote a glow and act as a ‘pick-me-up’. I’ve been spritzing it on during the day to refresh and revive – and it will also be my new travel must-have for in-plane pampering.
Mauli Rituals not only produces a line-up of natural products which aim to pamper and uplift, but it also has a holistic approach to its business.
“A by-product of being kinder to ourselves is we become kinder to our planet,” it says. “As Ayurveda advocates, there is an interconnectedness of all things and the duty we have to put right the wrongs of mass-consumption in the pursuit of a manufactured notion of perfection,” says the brand. “Our brand is inspired by Ayurveda and India’s rich and rejuvenating actives, however we purposefully manufacturer and source our raw ingredients in England from ethical, respected suppliers who are happy to share their transparent supply chain. Our ingredients are all natural and organic where possible.”
The Reawaken Himalayan Hand & Body Scrub, from £19, for instance, buffs away dead skin cells and impurities, and stimulates sluggish circulation. It contains mineral-rich Himalayan salts, drenched in a nourishing base of organic argan, moringa, almond and coconut, and therapeutic oils. Skin is left refined and smooth and scented with a glorious fragrance.
These Himalayan Healing Salts, £42 for seven pouches, are the perfect excuse for a spot of ‘self-healing’. Add the mineral rich blend to your bath. As well as 13 therapeutic oils, they are laced with soothing powdered rose quartz crystals to bring a sense of wellbeing, clarity and calm in an overly stimulated world. Soak for 15 minutes before bed, wrap yourself in a warm towel, grab a hot drink and head to bed. You’ll drift away for the best night’s sleep yet.
