Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

Restore hard-working hands to their rightful glory with a replenishing lavender hand-care caddy from cult British brand Cowshed, suggests beauty editor Jess Clark

As a city-dweller, I have a borderline-obsessive habit of washing my hands, so quality hand products are one of my favourite things. This cute Cowshed caddy fits the bill nicely, with lavender hand wash and hand cream housed in a rustic-looking tin holder (it’s a great-looking Christmas gift). New to M&S Beauty, Cowshed is known for its ethical credentials: no animal ingredients, no parabens, no artificial fragrances or colours – and only the highest-quality essential oils. But apart from all of that, I simply love the way this gently exfoliating hand wash, made with amber crystals, and nourishing cream – featuring fennel and lavender oils for their natural antiseptic, healing and soothing properties – make my skin smell and feel: heavenly.
