Somewhere between the grey skies and drizzle, plenty of us have noticed our summer glow has seemingly slipped away. But, that doesn’t mean dullness is here to stay. Our friends at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare shared with us the ultimate skincare advice to restore radiance during the winter months. Read what Brand Expert Antonia Knox has to stay below.

1. Switch Up Your Cleanser:
As the weather becomes colder outside and we crank up the heating inside, it could be a good time to start switching to a different cleansing regime to avoid skin becoming dry or flaky. Aurelia’s Miracle Cleanser consists of a luxurious, creamy formula that gently lifts away makeup and impurities. On the days you have a little extra time, the cleanser can be left on for five minutes as a nourishing treatment for even brighter looking skin.
2. Optimise Your Cleansing Routine:
Aurelia’s Bamboo Muslins are an ideal way to finish your cleanse. A more sustainable alternative to wipes and softer than some alternative cloths, they help give you a more effective clean without being too harsh. They’re also a great way to promote circulation, especially when used in circular motions across the skin.
A reminder here that the water you use to cleanse shouldn’t be too hot - especially if your face is already feeling dry. As tempting as it is to warm up that way, it can stress out your skin and no one wants that!
3. Don’t Forget to Exfoliate!
Gently exfoliating will help buff away dead skin cells, which is your first step to revealing the fresh-looking skin beneath. Aurelia’s Refine & Polish Miracle Balm is an ideal choice. This revolutionary double-action formula works as both a balm and exfoliating mask to transform congested and lacklustre complexions. It contains a medley of skin-brightening plant enzymes that help to refine the appearance of your skin while Aurelia’s Probiotic Ingredients protect, restore and balance the skin.
To use as a mask, simply apply to clean, dry skin and leave on for 5-10 minutes. You can boost the exfoliation power by massaging the product in gentle, circular motions as you remove it with a little warm water. We use this around three times a week, but you can tailor your usage to match your skin type and lifestyle.
4. Learn to Layer with Probiotics in Your Regime
Aurelia’s probiotic ingredients help to repair and protect the skin while offering balance from the inside, boosting collagen production and in turn helping skin glow all year round. We have quite a free approach to mixing and layering our treatment serums and oils, depending on your skin type and personal preference.
Aurelia’s Revitalise & Glow Serum is a super-lightweight blend that helps to calm natural immune triggers in your skin that can be overstimulated by pollution and stress, which can make skin look lacklustre. A richer alternative to this serum, or another product to layer for added dewiness, is our Balance & Glow Day Oil. This exquisite, lightweight daytime oil works to hydrate, rebalance, nourish and even the appearance of your skin tone.
Once skin is perfectly prepped, it’s time to smooth on your moisturiser. We recommend Aurelia’s Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser, a lightly whipped, replenishing cream that blends probiotic ingredients with botanical extracts. It helps keep your skin’s moisture levels topped up, transforming its luminosity.
5. Make Bodycare a Ritual
So, that’s your face taken care of. But it’s important not to neglect the rest of your skin. That’s where Aurelia’s Firm & Revitalise Dry Body Oil comes in. It’s a nourishing yet delicate dry body oil that firms and deeply hydrates parched skin. Apply generously all over clean, dry skin and allow it to sink in.
Or for an extra special treat, pour some into the bath for an indulgent bath time experience. The sumptuous signature essential oil blend of Neroli, Lavender, Rose and Mandarin will soothe the senses and combat stress, helping you indulge in a Moment of Mindfulness.

Why We Blind Taste Our Base Wines
A lot happens to a Gusbourne wine in its journey from harvest to bottle. One important stage is putting our base wines to the test. Each year our winemaking team blind tastes and meticulously analyses every wine before deciding the carefully crafted blends that each of our labels will carry. It’s a fascinating process that takes skill, experience and the ability to imagine a wine’s potential in every vintage year.
Bottling the Bubbles
Some elements of winemaking are widely recognisable. Everyone knows what pruning and harvest look like, photos abound. But once the grapes have been pressed in the winery and the young wine stored to mature, what happens next? When is it transferred to bottle? How do we know the optimum moment for release? Here we reveal the less public part of the winemaker's art.
