For their 400 di­rect sell­ers across Ire­land, Avon’s shock de­par­ture from our shores last month was the end of an era. But as one door closes, an­other opens, as they say, be­cause an­other di­rect-sell­ing op­por­tu­nity has come along. Famed or­ganic brand Neal’s Yard has had a small re­tail pres­ence in Ire­land for a num­ber of years, but that is about to change as they are bring­ing their di­rect-sell­ing model to Ire­land. At the mo­ment they have 5,000 con­sul­tants work­ing in the UK, with an­other 3,000 in the US, and now Ir­ish women can join the team. Neal’s Yard’s nat­u­ral pro­duce is hand­made in their eco-fac­tory in Dorset, south­west Eng­land. Gems in­clude their facial oils and baby range but the col­lec­tion is com­pre­hen­sive and keenly priced for such high qual­ity.

Us­ing a nat­u­ral self-tanning in­gre­di­ent, their olive-toned tans leave more cheaply made or­ange­hued ver­sions in the shade. Now, af­ter three years of re­search and de­vel­op­ment, He-Shi is launch­ing a pre­mium, nat­u­ral sk­in­care brand, Skini­cian, with four dis­tinct, colour- coded ranges — anti-age­ing, body, oil con­trol and hydrating. Prices range from €12.50-€55 (most prod­ucts are around the €20 mark); visit Part of the im­pres­sive an­gel­ica and iris range to cor­rect and per­fect blem­ish-prone skin, this BB cream gives skin a flaw­less fin­ish while work­ing on those pesky spots. Hydrating the skin is a ma­jor fo­cus of this cream but skin-clog­ging in­gre­di­ents have been elim­i­nated. The BB comes in two shades — Light and Medium — while a built-in SPF 30 pro­tects the skin from UV dam­age. A top BB for oilier skin types.

Luminous, youth­ful skin free from red­ness and dis­coloura­tion is the ob­jec­tive be­hind Vichy’s Idealia range. In a study by Vichy of 200 women across four con­ti­nents and four eth­nic­i­ties, 80 per cent of those aged of 30 to 50 were con­cerned greatly by dark spots, which Idealia works to cor­rect daily. This BB fits in nicely with the range — a mix of SPF 25, min­eral pig­ments and a Kom­bucha/Cey­lon tea blend to brighten and im­prove dull skin.

Avail­able in Medium and Dark, this oil-free BB is suit­able for all skin types. Mois­tur­is­ing for a com­fort­able fin­ish, and skin-pro­tect­ing with an SPF 30, it also has an anti-pol­lu­tion fac­tor de­rived from Rose Ap­ple Leaf Ex­tract, per­fect for city wear. Shi­seido fans who love their un­beat­able foun­da­tions and su­pe­rior sun care will love this hy­brid so­lu­tion!
