Skin care mixology set

Haeckels has developed cult status for its natural skincare. Its mixology kit for skin is the perfect gift for beauty buffs to experiment with this festive season. The idea is that, rather than investing in a whole new skincare regime according to the seasons, you can simply tailor your existing products by adding the right essential vitamins and nutrients from the three cold-pressed oils and potent Kelp Bioferment in the set. The skin heroes are packaged in a 100 percent biodegradable box for guilt-free gifting.
