Body Beautiful – Three New Beauty Buys to Try This Week
It’s a serious perk of the job here at Her.ie towers that we get to try and test some of the latest and greatest beauty releases and call it work. Lucky us. Here is a heads up on three products that got a communal thumbs up from the team in the week that was…
Ultimate Beauty Oil Anti-Age Skin Perfector, €11.99, Garnier
If you haven't yet flirted with ditching your regular body moisturiser for an oil version, you don't know what you're missing. Garnier knows body care, and this delicious (not literally - don't eat it), this concentrated formula is designed to intensely nourish and help firm the skin. Infused with four naturally derived oils; Pomegranate, Camella Jojoba and Geranium, this beauty buy helps to reduce the visible signs of ageing.
Weightless, non-greasy and fast-drying, a little goes a long way and this product is getting a big thumbs up in here...
Nail Rehab, €10.95 & Cuticle Rehab, €9.95, Sally Hansen
Sally's not just for tan you know...
We're a big fan of SH nail products around these parts, so over the weekend we'll be treating ourselves to a home manicure with some lovely new treats from Sally. Nail rehab is an innovative treatment designed to help strengthen weak and ravaged nails. The strengthening, sheer pink formula contains Jasmine & Rose extracts, and instantly fills in ridges and conceals damage. It’s can double-job as a base coat too, and prevent nail damage and staining. Apply 1-2 coats to bare nails or use under nail colour. Cuticle Rehab, then, takes care of 'exhausted and unruly cuticles'. This intense, brush on cuticle oil instantly smoothes, softens and helps restore moisture to cuticles. Infused with Vitamin E, the oil helps reduce nail breakage. Brush on cuticles and nails and massage in.
Guess Girl Summer, €19.95 (30ml)
Now that the sun's out (at last!) you may be in the market for a cheap and cheerful summery scent. Though many of us may feel we've outgrown the Guess line of fragrances, you just might be pleasantly surprised by this latest release. Inspired by the "free spiritedness of the Californian Girls", Johnny Depp's OH Amber Heard is the face of the scent. And lets face it, if we could have anything in common with Amber, we'd take it. The fragrance makes an entrance with a burst of citrus fresh scents The middle layer offers a tease of orange blossom, honeysuckle and delicate beach flower. Finally, it warms to voluptuous vanilla and indulgent wood tones, reminiscent of lazy days spent on the boardwalk.
Top Notes: Sparkling Fresh Citrus; Bergamot, Mandarin, Neroli petals
Middle Notes: Happy Floral; Orange Blossom, Honeysuckle, Beach Flower
Bottom Notes: Creamy Musks; Vanilla Orchid, Musk, Teak Wood
