Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves



M& beauty editor


The stresses of modern life, not to mention air travel, play havoc with the eyes. Revive them with Skyn Iceland’s treatment gel pads, suggests M& beauty editor, Jess Clark.

Most of us can attest to a toxic mix of sleep deprivation, dehydration, pollution and too much computer time – all of which take their toll on our skin health, especially around the delicate eye area. Enter the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels from Skyn Iceland, the vegan skincare brand, available in the UK, exclusively at M&S. The little gel patches (one of Harper’s Bazaar’s Beauty Hot 100 picks) are infused with a medley of goodness – peptides, antioxidants and botanicals – to soothe, tone and de-puff tired eyes. A favourite backstage with make-up artists, the moist patches feel fridge-cold on the skin and, after 10 minutes, leave eyes looking more awake and skin feeling taut and refined. Perfect during a long-haul flight or to revive after a big night.
