Hang on to your hats, there’s fresh fra­grance news from the Tom Ford camp. Launch­ing mid-July are two fur­ther ex­ten­sions to the gor­geous Neroli Portofino range – Man­darino Di Amalfi and Costa Az­zurra, both priced €178. Avail­able here from Brown Thomas Dublin and Cork, the Tom Ford Pri­vate Blend scents have been a mas­sive suc­cess.

As uni­sex fra­grances, every­one can in­dulge their favourite notes re­gard­less of the gen­der stereo­typ­ing that dic­tates only men’s scents can con­tain leather, or fe­male fra­grances only can use rose. As for these new scents, think of the Amalfi coast and the Mediter­ranean and get set to be trans­ported to Italy in a heart­beat. With Man­darino, ex­pect a tonic-like ef­fect of mint, thyme and wild flow­ers. With Costa Az­zurra, it’s salty beaches, dry herbs and evergreen trees min­gling with Mac­chia oaks, ju­niper pines and herbs. De­li­cious.


The Naked pal­ettes from Ur­ban De­cay are best-sell­ers. The shadow col­lec­tions are wear­able shades matched to dif­fer­ent cool or warm skin tones, and now we have the same for cheeks. The Naked Flushed com­pacts con­tain three full-sizes of blusher, bronzer and high­lighter, in three dif­fer­ent colour ways to match with pale, medium and dark skin tones. Clever think­ing Ur­ban De­cay. Avail­able from Debenhams, €29.


Great to see a new Ir­ish beauty brand en­ter the mar­ket, more so be­cause it prom­ises relief for many spot suf­fer­ers. Dream Dots are easy to use and ef­fec­tive patches to help clear spots overnight. Ap­plied to cleansed skin, a Dream Dot works over eight hours while you sleep to re­duce and clear any break-out. The patch turns white while it’s work­ing and you sim­ply re­move it in the morn­ing. A box of 24 costs €10. You’ll find them in your lo­cal phar­macy. Learn more at www. dream­dots­ Oily skin? Don’t de­spair. To prop­erly ad­dress ex­cess se­bum and its com­pli­ca­tions – reg­u­lar break­outs, shine and black­heads – you need a thor­ough rou­tine. The Ex­pert Pureté regime from Payot is com­pre­hen­sive and in­cludes cleansers and treat­ment creams. This black­head treat­ment with gly­colic acid will un­clog and tighten pores. 50+ and fab­u­lous? Then you are prob­a­bly aware of Clarins great range for ma­ture women.
