We have also welcomed the arrival of Sephora with open arms and particularily the new labels that it has brought to the UK with it, namely VEGAMOUR. Look out also for a pampering product for your four-legged friend from a none other than hair stylist George Northwood himself.

The powerhouse also protects against further environmental stresses and thus is a great anti-ageing component.
