Sanitise
Sanitise

As any Jewish woman will tell you, “looking this good” is a daily commitment, so regular product updates can only help with the process of feeling, looking and smelling great. After all, life has changed exponentially.

A hat worn to disguise a bad hair day is now teamed with a mask that covers half a sallow face.

Lipsticks, liners and the like remain in semi-lockdown, leaving eyes, brows and lashes front of stage. When you add cold weather, more screen time and a general air of malaise, it’s obvious looking good will make you feel better Dolly!

Jewish-owned company Let’s Sanitise supports the government’s mantra and, for every bottle sold (£7.99), donates another to care homes, schools and charities.

Best of all, its hand sanitiser – which kills 99.99% of bacteria – smells delish.

Available in citrus, lavender, peach, berry, watermelon and aloe vera, your mitts will never smell of Domestos again.

Foamie soap

The humble soap, which parents once threatened to use on mouthy children, is having a renaissance. It’s been reinvented by www.foamie.co.uk , a German company that has made a solid cleansing bar with perfect pH balance for skin and hair. It’s the “think outside the bottle” philosophy behind the ace Foamie shampoo bar (£7), and there’s no better wash to be had than with the rose oil face bar (£6).

Miller Harris (www.millerharris.com) make smells you can’t stop sniffing. Won over by LOST in the City (£120), described as “nature exploding through cracks of cement and brickwork, re-wilded rhubarb and the scent of green ferns”, you can now trial scents in the new Discovery Set, which features eight  and, on purchase, Miller Harris will email a £30 voucher to be redeemed against a full-sized bottle.

Once you find the fragrance you love, team it with a candle. Then your house can smell of  sandalwood, pink pepper and frankincense (Santal). Yum.

Peau santal

A bright orange tube branded Tired Faace (£24) is a gift if your reflection looks like mine. Used daily or weekly, the mask gives back the glossy and glow with no sleep required. This is a punchy potion that also fights off free radicals, gently exfoliates, brightens, and helps keep skin plump and springy.

Tired face

With your punim (face) exposed to blue light damage, radiation, central heating and, for many, no sleep, chances are you don’t look like you did in that Marbella poolside pic. Thanks, then, to 35 Thousand, which has  come up with a skin range containing the complex OTG-7.

The ingredients are too long to list, but it sorts stressed-out skin by calming irritation, reducing the effect of cortisol and restoring cell metabolism in such products as Really Radiant Cream (£90), which is a ‘facial in a bottle’ that gives that elusive ‘well-rested’ glow; Clever Cleansing Balm (£30), which removes make-up while nourishing, and the All-In A Day Serum (£40), which brightens and protects. As it doesn’t cost 35 thousand, it’s an improvement investment.

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
