This Works Energy Bank range

Zing! went the strings of our hearts when our friend Kathy Phillips recently unveiled these additions to her This Works Energy Bank range - and several of them have rocketed straight to the top of our personal charts. 'Instant awakeners', every one, we thought we'd share (several of) our favourites.

Energy Bank Breathe In is something for the handbag, for those moments when your get-up-and-go got-up-and-went: essential oils of orange, bergamot, geranium, ylang-ylang, patchouli, cedar and rosemary (the signature oils of this collection, NB), in a format you roll onto pulse-points or into the palm of your hand, and just b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

Energy Bank Sun Flash is just brilliant for this 'transitional' time of year: a tint which you mix into your favourite moisturiser, for a touch of extra instant colour.

And two which Jo's carrying everywhere in her handbank are This Works Energy Bank Hand Makeover - not only fab-scented and wonderfully smoothing, but it has an age-blurring effect (trust us on this), and Energy Bank Tinted Lips: a lovely sheer wash of tinted raspberry colour, which livens up the whole face, while nourishing lips.

We're ready for spring. We're ready for anything, actually, with these in our 'energy bank'.
