Skincare Heroes For an Effective Beauty Routine

The colder season is officially over, Spring is in the air and we’ve packed away our chunky knits, scarves and gloves and replaced them with cute off-the-shoulder tops, cropped denim and pastel biker jackets. It’s time to start thinking about the upcoming summer season, we’re SO ready to embrace warmer temperatures, pub gardens and plenty of social events in the city.

We’ll admit, our beauty routine has somewhat slipped over the winter season, but we’ve found our new holy grail skincare products to give our complexion a much needed boost and burst of hydration. The office has gone crazy for this must-have brand!

Introducing Marlenha, a beautiful range of luxury Italian skincare that harnesses the power of plants to offer highly effective formulas. Combining nature’s finest botanical extracts and pure plant oils, these products offer a safe list of ingredients that your skin will just love.
