Beauty: Notably New

There’s something about the onslaught of a new season that makes us want to play with our beauty routines. Bored with our winter clothes (baggy jumpers and tights must go soon mustn’t they?) but not quite ready to dive into summer dresses, this time of year always inspires us to think of other ways to mix up our daily look. Luckily there are lots of new beauty & skincare items and emporiums on the market, which make this easy to do.

Nivea Pure & Natural Toner €4.99

Beauty buffs were all over Moroccan argan oil last year, thanks to its intense moisturising properties. Now you can get it built into your skincare regime with an affordable face, body and lips range from Nivea, called Pure & Natural. We’re currently using the facial toner.

Crabtree & Evelyn Outlet

India Hicks, Prince Charles goddaughter and interiors guru who lives in the Caribbean, has collaborated with luxury beauty label Crabtree & Evelyn to create “Island Living” – a body care and home scents collection which you can check out the newly opened outlet store at Kildare Village.

Ren No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm €42

This rose-infused cleansing balm comes with a muslin cloth and gently yet thoroughly melts away dirt and make-up, including waterproof mascara.  We’ve tried it for the past month and it’s left our skin feeling calm while conditioning brows and lashes. Available at Arnotts.

Lancôme Flash Bronzer Anti-Age €35.00

This cult self-tanning product now comes with a built in SPF 15. So now you can get a natural, even and gorgeous glow without the aging affects of daily sun exposure. A must-have, we say.

St. Tropez’s Dark Instant Glow Body Lotion €17.50

Forget pale and interesting, those looking for a bronzed glow will welcome this new dark shade of wash off tan from tanning supremos St Tropez.  Previously only available in “natural-looking glow”, it can be removed with soap and water at the end of the night. 

Rebel Nails Cheetah for Fingers €9 (not pictured)

Beyonce, Victoria Beckham and Leona Lewis are just a few celebrity fans of nail art.  And while a professional nail art manicure at WAH nails in Harvey Nics will set you back approx €40, Rebel Nails offers a DIY option with self-adhesive, nail covers which don’t require drying time or glue.  Available from the new beauty store at

    Balm is by far the best cleanser and makes skin feel like velvet
