Genie in a bottle
If your skin reacts to the effects of the elements, your diet or your lifestyle, this genius little silver bottle of elixir is likely to be your everyday go-to.

Just warm up between your fingertips, apply and let the soothing elements go to work.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s summer or winter, facial skin can always use a little TLC. Refresh your look with this luscious Société Rejuvenating Peptide Gel Mask – it cools, hydrates and relieves dry or stressed skin. Enjoy a 15-30 minute relaxation break while the mask works its magic. Top tip – pop the mask in the fridge before applying for an extra cooling effect.
If you’re a fan of quality video and images, you’ll love this nifty offering from renowned drone-makers DJI. As the name suggests, the Osmo Pocket is tiny enough to take pretty much anywhere with you. It shoots 4K quality, has gimbal stabilisation, a built-in extension rod and selfie mode – and like all DJI offerings, is straightforward and simple to operate. djistore.co.nz
Next time you’re feeling peckish, reach for these delish combinations from East Bali. Our fave is the Granola Bites (coconut banana) – deliciously crunchy coconut and banana bite-sized granola clusters, perfect for an early morning snack or afternoon pick-me-up. Better yet, they’re 100% natural, vegan and ethically produced. thebaron.co.nz
