TAKE ME TO MOROCCO

Or at the very least up to Har­vey Ni­chols in Dun­drum to check out the new body range from hair care supre­mos Moroccanoil. What we love about Moroccanoil is all there — argan oil, grape seed, sweet al­mond oils, in­tense hy­dra­tion and the sig­na­ture fra­grance — the range ticks ev­ery box. In­cluded in the new body care range are a sump­tu­ous Body Souf­fle, Body Scrub, Hand Cream, Cleans­ing Bar and Body Lo­tion. There’s a choice of two oils, one dry, the other shim­mer­ing, both too hard to re­sist. In the paraben­free hand cream, you’ll find argan and av­o­cado oils with co­coa, shea and mango but­ters. Prices range from €13 to €56.50, exclusive to Har­vey Ni­chols, Dun­drum. You pick up the Luas tick­ets, I’ll bring my flask.

PICK OF THE BB BUNCH

Star buy of the week, this is your sum­mer go-to face saver, Vichy’s BB Cream. Why? Be­cause al­though there are lots and lots of BB Creams around, none are hit­ting the SPF 50 mark. Vichy un­der­stand the sen­si­tiv­i­ties of Ir­ish skin, they are the num­ber one sell­ing derma brand in Ir­ish phar­ma­cies. This new BB has two for­mu­la­tions. The first is a vel­vety cream for nor­mal to dry skin; the sec­ond is a dry touch fluid for com­bi­na­tion to oily. Both SPF 50, and avail­able in a nat­u­ral tan shade. Avail­able at phar­ma­cies na­tion­wide, priced €16.50.

ATH­LETIC LIMBS

L’Oc­c­i­tane’s al­mond collection is a best seller. The ton­ing range is pop­u­lar pre-bikini sea­son and in­cludes beau­ti­fully scented oils, lotions and creams. This year the French brand has col­lab­o­rated with the Royal Bal­let in Lon­don to launch a limited edi­tion collection used by the dancers them­selves. In a pretty Royal Bal­let pouch, you will find the firm­ing Tonic Body Oil, Lighter Legs Sooth­ing Cream, and Smooth Hands. If you don’t know the range, check it out, you won’t be dis­ap­pointed. From L’Oc­c­i­tane na­tion­wide, €59. A trop­i­cal rain­for­est af­ter a down­pour, this was per­fumer Is­abelle D’Or­nano’s im­age for Sis­ley’s new scent. Cer­tainly the blend of hi­bis­cus, pas­sion­flower and frangi­pani con­jure up an ex­otic feel. Tuberose, rose and vi­o­let add the flo­ral el­e­ment at the heart of the scent, with gin­ger, berg­amot and patchouli in the dry-down phase. If you want a sexy sum­mer scent that is lush and sen­sual, this one’s for you. Free-spir­ited Cal­i­for­nia girls are the in­spi­ra­tion for this sunny, fresh flo­ral. The Guess Girl scent is pop­u­lar with bright, young things and it is a sexy, vi­brant scent. This EDT gives the orig­i­nal added ex­u­ber­ance. Key notes of man­darin, neroli and berg­amot give way to or­ange blos­som, hon­ey­suckle and beach flower. It has been al­most a decade since we first met Flowerbomb, a scent that ex­ploded with flow­ers in a bot­tle shaped like a grenade. Men’s scents fol­lowed, An­ti­dote and Spice­bomb, and now Bon­bon has landed for women. Fruitier than Flowerbomb, the key note is caramel, fol­lowed by man­darin, or­ange, peach and jas­mine. Sexy, sweet, just yummy.
