SPOT THE DIF­FER­ENCE

As most women know, it’s not just teenagers who ex­pe­ri­ence en­larged pores, ex­cess oil and spots. Poor cleans­ing, stress and hor­mone fluc­tu­a­tions can be to blame. But you don’t have to re­sort to the spot­clear­ing prod­ucts of your teens as Estée Lauder has cre­ated the Clear Dif­fer­ence sys­tem to cor­rect oily skin is­sues. The Tar­geted Blem­ish Treat­ment (€34) is a roller ball liq­uid that di­min­ishes break­outs as soon as they ap­pear. The Ad­vanced Blem­ish Serum (€57) is oil-free and light­weight, used on clean skin and fol­lowed with an oil-free sun­screen it should help oilier skin look and feel health­ier (and spot-free) long term.

IT’S A COVER UP

The world’s leading cam­ou­flage cor­rec­tive make-up has had a makeover. Vichy’s Der­mablend is the range to in­ves­ti­gate if you want to ef­fec­tively cover up scars, birth­marks, acne, tat­toos or vi­tiligo. The orig­i­nal full cover cream foun­da­tion, set­ting pow­der and con­cealer re­main part of the range, but they are joined now by To­tal Body Cor­rec­tive Foun­da­tion SPF 15, €25 in three shades, Com­pact Cream Foun­da­tion SPF30 €24.50 in five shades. The range is suit­able for all skin types in­clud­ing sen­si­tive. Ask at your lo­cal Vichy phar­macy for a colour match and ap­pli­ca­tion demon­stra­tion.

BUFF BEAUTY

With sum­mer on our doorstep there is a re­newed in­ter­est in ex­fo­li­a­tion – smoother skin takes fake tan more evenly and looks more ra­di­ant. New for 2014 from In­deed Labs is the Fa­cial Pow­dered Exfoliator, €24.99 for 75g. This con­cen­trated blend of rice bran pow­der, bam­boo ex­tract, pineap­ple en­zymes and red al­gae of­fers su­pe­rior skin resur­fac­ing on the face, neck and chest – al­though if you’re in the shower you could ex­tend the ex­fo­li­at­ing to the arms and legs, too. To activate, shake a lit­tle pow­der into the palms, add a lit­tle wa­ter or cleanser and get scrub­bing! Avail­able from boots.ie. For what it’s worth, in all the years that self-tan has been avail­able, Clar­ins’ prod­ucts have al­ways of­fered a re­ally nat­u­ral look­ing tan shade – no or­ange hues here. This new self-tan liq­uid al­lows you to cus­tom blend your colour. You can add a few (or more) drops of tan to your mois­turiser in the morn­ing or evening. Per­fect if you have dry skin, you get the golden glow with the com­fort from your usual cream. Budget beauty at its best, surely there’s no other tan brand that can beat St Moriz on price? For just €7 this Mini Collection con­tains a scrub, body lo­tion and tan in light, medium or dark. The 100ml bot­tle sizes are not as ‘mini’ as you might ex­pect, but will still pass air­port se­cu­rity.
