 Give the Gift of Good Skin this Mother's Day

Great gift ideas from the Love My Skin range by Kinetik.


The Anti-Ageing Pen (rrp £39.99) has six lights and is perfect for closely targeting small, harder to reach areas around the eyes, nose and mouth where wrinkles can be the most noticeable. Use it for just one minute, twice a day to leave skin looking and feeling smoother, more toned and visibly younger.


The Anti-Ageing Compact (rrp £99.99) is packed with 32 LED lights and still fits snugly into the palm of your hand. Great for larger skin areas on the face, neck and décolletage you'll see visible results in just four weeks when used for one minute twice a day. Both products are discreet and portable for top-up treatments on-the-go.


Red light therapy is scientifically proven to stimulate and repair skin and is kind and safe to use on even the most sensitive of skin.


The Love My Skin Cleansing System (rrp £29.99) is designed for speed and convenience. When used for just 60 seconds a day with your favourite face-wash it gives skin a much deeper clean than simple hand-washing.


Two unique brushes include a bristle bush for a quick daily cleanse, removing daily dirt and make-up.  The second, a softer, tapered brush cleans deeper to shift dead skin cells and embedded impurities.  A latex sponge tackles make-up, giving skin a smoother and m

ore polished look. All are suitable for sensitive skin.  The three interchangeable heads work in a unique dual-direction, clockwise for the right side of your face and counter-clockwise for the left, removing dirt from your pores and lifting it away from the skin before it can get embedded.  


The Love My Skin anti-ageing products from Kinetik are available from Argos, Boots, Amazon, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Superdrug and other good retailers both in-store and online at  


The Love My Skin Cleansing System is available from Boots and online at

 Afternoon Tea...By Overnight Delivery!

The Delimann is based on the edge of Dartmoor, and has been sending their signature Afternoon Tea's by overnight delivery all over the UK for the last 6 years.  All ingredients are locally sourced, and the bakery products are freshly baked each day, to ensure maximum freshness.  


"We have found that increasingly people people just have too much "stuff" and want to send something memorable, an experience that can be enjoyed in the here and now. This seems to be why our hampers are so popular - you receive the hamper, and pop the kettle on (or pop the cork!), and enjoy a few quiet moments of indulgence" says Director Deborah Trott "its not a question of receiving a food hamper with a few random products in that get put in the cupboard and half get forgotten about!". The Afternoon Tea hampers come with a special instruction card, on how to assemble your perfect cream tea, which is fun and definitely fuels the cream or jam first debate!   


In 2013 the Delimann won the "Best Cream Tea" in countryside as voted on by customers via Heart of Devon Tourism campaign and many of its products have been awarded Gold Medals in the Great Taste Awards.  


The Devonshire Afternoon Tea costs £23.50 or send a Luxury Afternoon Tea with Prosecco for £39.95. Full details at
