My Favourite Five

Nikki Albanese, manager of the new Spa Hotel opening at Ribby Hall Village this month tells us the top five products she can't live without.

1 DERMALOGICA MULTIVITAMIN THERMAFOLIANT - this facial exfoliator gently warms up when applied to damp skin and polishes and refines it while delivering a powerful cocktail of anti-ageing vitamins.

2 DERMALOGICA MULTIVITAMIN POWER RECOVERY MASQUE - this is my hero product! When my skin really needs a bit of TLC but I haven't got time for a treatment I apply this and after just 10 minutes my skin looks radiant.

3 JANE IREDALE LIQUID MINERALS FOUNDATION - it contains an anti-ageing serum which diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as long-lasting coverage.

4 JANE IREDALE PURE PRESSED BASE - my other favourite foundation. This is a four-in-one containing foundation, powder and concealer in one as well as an SPF perfect for oily skins.

5 NEOM REFRESH ORGANIC BODY WASH - I'm conscious about using organic products whenever possible and Neom products are the best organic range I've come across. I'm totally addicted to this body wash!
