The skincare secret Nigella Lawson raves about

In a recent The Sunday Times column, Nigella Lawson raved about prickly pear oil, leading to vegan, eco skincare brand Samson & Charlie almost selling out its entire stock in one week. The surge was spurred by Lawson’s praise of the miracle oil’s potent anti-ageing and dark spot healing abilities.

Samson & Charlie Virgin Prickly Pear Oil is one of the highest quality versions available on the market, as it’s cold-pressed and unrefined.
