GIVE ME SOME SU­GAR...

Just launched, ladies, the lim­it­ededi­tion Raw Su­gar Sum­mer collection from Bobbi Brown. In­spired by the warm hues of su­gar crys­tals, the range in­cludes a Shim­mer Brick pal­ette for eyes filled with gold, bronze and choco­late-coloured shad­ows, €47. Bronz­ing pow­der comes in ei­ther matte or il­lu­mi­nat­ing fin­ishes (€34.50), and for nails a metal­lic gold or bronze, €14. And sum­mer wouldn’t be sum­mer at Bobbi Brown with­out Beach, the fra­grance with notes of sand, jas­mine, man­darin and sea spray, €66. Take a sniff at your near­est counter, it will trans­port you straight to St. Tropez.

TEST­ING, TEST­ING...

News just in from my panel of very knowl­edge­able testers (all aged be­tween five and seven). Tan­gle Teezer’s Magic Flow­er­pot (€13) has dra­mat­i­cally changed how they feel about bath time! Ev­ery par­ent will un­der­stand the un­de­ni­able tor­ture of de­tan­gling the hair of a small child. Tan­gle Teez­ers short teeth tech­nol­ogy flex over tan­gled hair with­out pulling or drag­ging. There are other ver­sions for adult hair, rang­ing from €14-€15.95, so we can all live tan­gle-free! Avail­able from Boots and se­lect sa­lons na­tion­wide.

A CC FOR THOSE CURLS...

Al­pha beauty news, ladies, there’s a CC cream for your hair. From leading hair brand Kéras­tase, the new CC Creme is quite a clever prod­uct and it’s per­fect for sum­mer and hol­i­days. It has a good sun fil­ter so it re­duces dam­age caused by UV ex­po­sure. It is en­riched with lin­seed and saf­flower oils which keeps hair nour­ished and smooth. Kéras­tase rec­om­mend the CC be used in any of the fol­low­ing ways — as a leave-in be­fore sun ex­po­sure on dry or damp hair, post-sham­poo as a con­di­tioner and heat pro­tec­tion be­fore styling, or as a fin­ish­ing treat­ment to add shine and strengthen hair lengths. One prod­uct to do all that? Well done Kéras­tase. €23.50, sa­lons na­tion­wide. This stun­ning cit­rus oil com­ple­ments the orig­i­nal Tom Ford scent. A blend of cit­rus, flo­ral and am­ber notes, it is the type of scent to be worn by ei­ther sex. It’s fresh and up­lift­ing but with a sen­sual tone. The oil con­tains the fra­grance and could be worn along with the eau de par­fum. Or use it by it­self on the body for nour­ished, sup­ple skin that car­ries the del­i­cate sum­mer scent of berg­amot and man­darin.
