In our most recent print issue, we explored the phenomenon of ASMR, or the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response.

What was once a secret between strangers on the internet, ASMR is now recognised as a somewhat quantifiable physiological response to certain auditory, tactile or visual triggers. It’s especially notorious in beauty, often explored via the sweeping of a brush, the tapping of nails, the smacking of lipgloss or the gentle crumble of a powder compact. 

To accompany the feature, we’ve also curated a playlist of our favourites sounds — gentle, softening, somewhat meditative soundtracks to calm your mind and maybe spread a little warmth. Try not to knock it until you’ve tried it…
