Body Beautiful – Three New Beauty Buys to Try This Week

It’s a serious perk of the job here at 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…


No7 Summer Collection, from €9

We have a lot of love for No7 at Towers. This week we're dreaming of sunshine with the new summer collection from the Boots brand. It includes:

Instant Radiance Bronzer (€12.95) 

This fat crayon is the perfect way to create an instant glow.  Sweep gently onto the cheeks, bridge of the nose and brow bones to reveal a subtle shimmering bronzed finish.

Gel-Look Shine Nail Colours in Summer Holiday, Mint Treat, Orange Spice and Lemon Drop (€9)

One of the quickest ways to brighten up your look is with a new nail shade, and we love the gel-look shine from these beauties.  The lemon in particular is very high on our summer lust list - divine!

High Shine Lip Crayon in Tropical Beach (€11.75)

These crayons give a lovely glossy, sheer finish and are super moisturising on the lips. The pop-up design means there is no need to sharpen either. Win! 

BB Lips in Geranium (€11.75)

A beauty balm? For lips? Yes please. This coral is the perfect summer lip shade and boasts nourishing benefits and SPF 15 to boot.

Endless Euphoria Calvin Klein, from €45.70

If you're in the market for a new summer perfume, we've got just the think. Endless Eurphoria from Calvin Klien is an update on the classic fragrance, and we've gone a little dotty for it. Opening with the sunny scent of cherry blossoms, tipped with refreshing mandarin and bergamot, the heart blooms with floral notes of violet and pastel rose, while the dreamy base, has bamboo, sandalwood, and bare musk.

The original euphoria bottle gets a redesign, and the translucent glass bottle with its blush-peach hue and soft pink juice will brighten up any dresser.

Prices start at €45.70 for a 40ml eau de parfum.

Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria 125ml €83.80 £66

Carino Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner/Mighty Shampoo and Conditioner, €2.49 each

Did you do a double take when you saw these products? Yes? Us too. Let's not lie, it's fairly obvious that this budget brand is paying serious homage to another well known product line from Down Under. But does it live up to its inspiration?

The quick answer is yes. These bargain buys will be in Aldi from May 29th and we have to say, they're worth stocking up on. The Moisture products contain Australian Macadamia Nut Oil, to ad shine to your hair while keeping it nourished. If your locks are dry and damaged and in need of a little TLC, this is the option for you. The Mighty range boasts another key Oz ingredient; Kangaroo Paw Flower extracts to add vibrancy and shine to dull hair. You might not switch from your favourite luxury brands, but at less than a fiver for a lovely shampoo and conditioner, you really can't go wrong.
