7) Stila Tip Trio in Foliage
This little trio of bestselling Stila Lip Glazes is inspired by the deeper, darker colours of the autumn and winter seasons. Each exclusive shade is cool-toned, with the mink pink of Delicate, the deep wine hue of Loganberry, and the plum brown of Fawn, each dazzling with shimmer. Small enough to pop in your pocket or your bag, they’re a sweet little treat for lipgloss lovers of all ages.

8) L’Occitane Shea Butter Soap Set
Perfect for both men and women, this set of vegetable-based shea butter soaps from L’Occitane ensures moisture, care and a high concentration of ultra nourishing shea butter while cleansing.

Use with a shaving brush for a touch of old school barber shop style in the bathroom.

10) Calvin Klein CK Shock Him 20ml
Energetic and rebellious, this scent from Calvin Klein takes the original minimalism of CK One and turns it on its head. Hedonistic notes of Red Bull, Black Pepper, Black Basil and Tobacco Absolute assert a sense of dark masculinity. This 20ml size in its special travel packaging is perfect for tucking into a gym bag or a pocket for on-the-go scenting.
