I’m old enough to know not to judge a book – or indeed anything else - by its cover. And I was delighted to find a spa of any kind on Gili Gede, an unspoilt and un-touristy island off the south-west coast of Lombok, a couple of hours by boat from.
Once we are into the tail end of autumn, like now, skin often ends up looking dry and dull - so here is a brilliant selection of products to freshen up your complexion. I've chosen a refining polish to clear away dead skin cells, a replenishing.
This little trio came my way in the summer and because the bottles are cute and portable and the products cover all my basic skincare needs, they have been travelling everywhere with me.
