#HLDiscovery: Markets, Balm and Burgers | House and Leisure

Whether you love getting your hands dirty while gardening, enjoying some retail therapy at a market or sipping on a chilled glass of white wine on a warm summer evening, this week's #HLDiscovery list has something for you. 

1. SoyLites Gardening Balm 

Gardening is one of life's little pleasures. Nurturing and caring for something and seeing its beauty enhance your space is a special kind of reward - but it comes at a price. Spending time in the sun digging, pruning, watering and handling all sorts of tools can take its toll on your hands. To help look after them, SoyLites has created an Everyday Gardening Balm that is infused with rosehip and shea butter to effectively soften calluses and moisturise parched fingers and palms. It also contains lemongrass, lavender and neroli to refresh the skin and the senses.

2. Haute Cabrière's New Packaging 

It has been almost 25 years since the Von Arnim family launched the iconic Haute Cabrière wine range, which has firmly established itself in the South African wine industry. As all sucessful brands do to stay on top of their game,  Haute Cabrière is evolving with an exciting packaging upgrade. Taking its cue from its famous Cabrière Chardonnay Pinot Noir’s distinct golden yellow screwcap, the winery has decided to make this signature yellow the Haute Cabrière brand colour. Not only is the hue eye-catching and playful, it is synonymous with one of Haute Cabrière's most successful wines.
