When I received a press release saying that hair and beauty salon Michaeljohn has a website, I felt a bit ‘yawn’ about it – so glad I didn’t press delete though, because what did I find but the gorgeous skin care range Babor. Huge, huge in Germany, Babor has failed to make a significant inroad in the UK market, and I just don’t understand why. It is easily one of the best skin care ranges I’ve ever used: I had a Babor facial years ago at a Lake Taho that literally wiped ten years off my face (temporarily I might add!) and I’ve never forgotten it. A few years back, the range had PR in the UK and I tried out a few more things – if you’re looking to try the range, opt for the Collagen Booster Fluid Ampules, £22 (for 7) – they’re lush. And – back to the Michaeljohn site, it really does have some hard to find brands (as well, of course as the usual suspects) but it is a curious edit, with Tangleteazer (also rather genius) and the frighteningly over powerful (well, sorry, but mine was) Sleepscentations nestling with serious and upscale skin care. www.michaeljohn.co.uk
