Lofty Aspirations: things we like #5

Lofty Aspirations: things we like #5

Leaky ballpoint in hand, you're circling your material desires in the Index catalogue. Meanwhile, your mum is downstairs cooking egg, chips and beans to the tropical sounds of Neneh Cherry. You didn't want that massive Aiwa walkman, you needed it. 

Reminiscing aside, here are some things we like this week. 


01 DAY CREAM 50ML. Nourishing moisturiser with SPF20

Well who doesn't want a face softer than a marshmallow and tighter than a very small gap? This lightweight, moisturising cream keeps your grill (and body) hydrated throughout the day, with SPF 20 to protect the skin against UVA/UVB rays. And with ingredients more exotic than a Jamie Oliver cookbook including kigelia fruit extract and shea fruit butter, it's no wonder the 01 Day Cream visibly tightens the skin. A true winner.
