  • Pai Skincare The Annie Iconic Explorer Gift

    What makes a hero skincare product an even a better gift? When it’s dedicated to a real life hero, that’s what. 

    This holiday season, Pai Skincare are taking cues from iconic female explorers to inspire us to embrace our own journeys. And they’re quite literally wrapping their cult Rosehip Bioregenerate facial oil in Annie Londonderry’s story. 

    The cute packaging (which is recyclable and also doubles up as a tree decoration), tells how in 1849 – at the age of 23 – Annie Londonderry left her home in Boston to cycle around the world solo, becoming an icon for women’s independence and athleticism.

    It also houses a product that will become your skin’s hero – rosehip oil in its purest form. It boasts glow-inducing power and omegas 3, 6  and 9 to repair damaged skin, while antioxidant carotenoids protect from further damage. It’s gentle on skin with no irritants like alcohol, parabens or artificial fragrances, and best of all, you’ll receive it as a free gift if you spend £59 or more at Pai. Bonus.
