Neal's Yard is a beautiful and discreet backstreet located in London's hip Covent Garden. There you will find a delightful health and beauty store of the same name, filled with organic treats and goodies. Popping in with a friend one afternoon, I couldn't resist sampling a few products and splurging. We also dipped into Homeslice, a top-notch pizza place right next door with the biggest pizzas I've ever seen. I'm getting distracted. Story for another time! Feeling cheeky, I indulged in a face mask. Somehow I ended up with only one in my collection - ludacris! The White Tea Enriching Facial Mask is a thing of sweet depth. Rich and musky smelling with a slight spicy undertone, it smells delightfully fresh. So it should, when 59% comes from organic origins. The packaging is dreamy; a Moroccan, deep blue with hints of purple that catches the light beautifully. It feels sturdy to boot. Great for popping in your travel bag. The consistency is thick and glossy and a little goes a long way. The colour is quite bland and leaves much to be desired but as it is an organic product I wouldn't expect anything else. Earthy tones equals no artificial colouring. The clay-like consistency can feel quite tight and drying while on, however, when washed off turns into a gorgeous milky formula leaving the skin feeling smooth and plump.
The White Tea Face Mask retails for £25.75.

You become the creator. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate. Tempting toppings of popping candy, a hit of chilli flakes or maybe a hazelnut crunch, all finished off with a chocolate drizzle. The combination of flavours are endless and the world (the Magnum world to be exact) is yours to take hold.
On my trip to the store, Magnum was kind enough to give me the opportunity to go backstage and get the true ice cream maker experience. I yielded the hat and got dunking. My choice of ice cream was of true decadence. Crispy, edible gold fieullantine with pretty pink rose petals and a dash of lilac cornflower. The first bite was special. Really special. There's something spectacular about devouring something you've fashioned yourself. I felt like a kid in an ice cream store.
The Make My Magnum Experience is open in Selfridges London store from the 30th June -30th August. If you go, try out the www.makemymagnum.com on your mobile to get a free topping and get practising your ice cream making technique. Make sure to share your Magnum with the #magnumxselfridges tag and show the world your creation!
Let me know in the comments what your toppings of choice would be!
