  • Why lettuce is the latest beauty wonder ingredient

    We all know that getting your five a day is essential for a healthy diet, but now a new beauty brand is encouraging us not only to eat our veg, but to slather it on our skin as well.

    Vegetable(s) harnesses the powerful antioxidants found in your nearest vegetable patch, for a range of products with an ingredients list that reads like a Jamie Oliver recipe.

    So what’s on the menu? Forget saving lettuce for salad time, and reach for the Vegetarian Cream, a nourishing treat for sensitive skin.

    The leafy hero ingredient calms and softens the skin, while adding to the tasty concoction is a toss of tomatoes, to hydrate, and a hint of celery, to firm.

    The finishing touches? Like every good salad needs a dressing, the cream adds a dash of olive oil to soothe and a boosting touch of basil.

    Feel like your skin needs a little something more? Why not try the mash melon mask or the skin-saving tomato serum.

    One try and you’ll catch yourself looking to your veg draw with new found interest!

    The range is available exclusively at, click here to shop the collection.
