Always unable to resist small things, I was enchanted by this sleeping mask. The container is a realistic but miniature half mango barely the size of my thumbprint, with a tiny spoon attached, and it begged to be snapped up from the shelf of Boots in Bangkok. (Although it is, like all the most interesting facial products, actually made in Korea.)

Now I wish I had bought more. Ridiculously small as the mango is, the contents are still presented as a cream ‘stone’ within a jelly ‘fruit’, and really did smell good enough to eat. The spoon is also exactly what you need to scoop up a little bit of each before blending it in with your fingers. It was altogether a great buy – so rich and creamy that a small amount went such a long way there was enough to last 3 days. My skin felt beautifully hydrated next day, and of course the mango smell was a bonus.

I very much hope I will find this treat again!
