For a glittering morning after

FORMER City worker and founder of Chemist Direct Mitesh Soma has created an antidote to the dreaded holiday hangover – his and hers Christmas party survival kits.

Soma, a former Deutsche Bank management consultant first put together the emergency packs last year, in response to demand from friends in the Square Mile.

He told The Capitalist: “The kit can go some way to stopping people from being caught out on the night – and helps get them on the road to recovery if they are feeling a bit delicate the next day.”

Besides painkillers and alcohol screening tests, which are provided to both genders, the men get a razor, hair wax, deodorant and mouthwash for £19.99, while the women’s kit for £24.99 includes fake eyelashes, a mini hairspray, an extremely loud glitter nail varnish and sachet of fake tan.

The only problem, besides the drunken fake tanning hazard, is trying not to lose the package on the night itself.
