Welcome to ‘Til The Last Drop: a bi-monthly column in which I, CF Beauty Editor, Olivia Bennett, share my review of a favourite cult product that I (truly) use to the last drop. This week’s featured product is Polkra X Katie Scott’s Atlas Candle.
I’m messaged by friends and family, at all hours of the day, with recommendation requests for everything from “the budget gel moisturiser that works with combination skin” to “the hard-hitting eye cream that will make Botox a last resort”, and queries on “whether X, Y, and Z from the current trending brand are REALLY worth the hype”.
Such incessant inquiries sparked this column, where I’ll cover best-selling names alongside under-the-radar brands to note. You’ll hear about blow-the-budget products that live up to their hefty price tag and the purse-friendly steals which I unashamedly turn to time and again.
No need to text me, I’ll be sharing all my intel with you right here every other week. Tune in.
Cosy winter nights and scented candles are a match made in heaven, and my favourite candles come from the collaboration between Polkra and British artist, Katie Scott. The paraffin-free coconut wax candles have an impressive burn time of 45 hours, and once used, the ornately decorated ceramic vessels can be repurposed for make-up brushes, kitchen utensils, or even plant pots. I adore the Atlas candle: a decadent fig, cassis, mandarin, and cedar wood scent the fills the room long before it has even been lit.
