Mr Masey’s Incredible Beard Stall in Kensington Gardens gets insanely busy at weekends.

If a tide of punters has swept you clean past the cruelty-free Kent shaving brushes and tempting bottles of goodness, try to stop and shop for the furry men in your life.

Mr Masey’s Complete Beard Kit is £25 for four handmade products to flatter the bearded chap. Beard Wash Shampoo cleans and softens with Sweet Orange essential oil (free from foaming agents).

The Beard Conditioner has a silky formula to ramp up gloss and shine. Mr Masey’s Brilliant Beard Oil nourishes and conditions the skin beneath a beard with added Jojoba. Sculpt and perfect with a final twist of Mr Masey’s Magnificent Moustache and Beard Wax. Santa might not want to share his set, so it could be wiser to order yours online at mr-masey.co.uk (the last posting day before Christmas is Tuesday 22).

Vaporising oils are just the thing for fresh scents at home. You don’t need to go in for fancy burners either - simply flick five drops onto a tissue or hanky when the radiator is on for a fast scent pay off. I like the stimulating fusion of Eucalyptus, Clove and Rosemary pure essential oils which come in a lovely Winter Warming pack by Tisserand for £5.50. Under the lid it invites you to ‘Come in out the cold’ with little stars.

You could submerge in a therapeutic steam bath with Winter Warming Bath Oil to enjoy the same mix of vapours enriched by skin-pampering Coconut, Sweet Almond and Jojoba Oils, £10.95 for 100ml. I want to try the Tisserand Signature Blend Indulgent Luxe Bath Soak, £7.35 for its uplifting tropical Ylang-Ylang, exotic Patchouli and sensual Jasmine with skin softening Violet Leaf extract (free-from SLES, parabens and synthetic fragrance).

Illamasqua’s pearlised gold Beam nail varnish is an understated stunner for the party season, £14.50. To stay natural, try Eccleston Mews, a luxurious shimmer gold for £15.50 in the Woodlanders collection by Jacava. Their impressive colour range is Formaldehyde Free, Formaldehyde Resin Free (known as Tosylamide), Toluene Free, Paraben Free, Camphor Free, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) Free, no Phthalates, Xylene Free, Ethyl Tosylamide Free,

Lead Free and Vegan-friendly. Jacava is the UK’s first 9-free Nail Polish, and they love Brighton so I’ll try these out in 2016: www.jacava.com/blog/brighton-rock
