Have you ever not used a product because the packaging was too good? Because you couldn't bring yourself to break the seal on the box or discard the empty bottle for fear of throwing off your bathroom's feng shui? Come and join us in the circle of trust, where we occasionally buy products as ornaments. Because have you seen Aesop's artistic impression of soap? Or how Byredo have managed to make shower gel look couture? And you've heard of those Barbara Hepworth style soaps, right?
To celebrate our obsession with product style, we've compiled the ultimate package-porn items to fill your bathroom with – and make you feel like you're living in the opening shower scene of American Psycho. Say it together now: “In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply a herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine."
