LUS­CIOUS LOCKS

Do you have fine or thin hair, and long for more body and vol­ume? You could try L’Oréal El­vive Fi­brol­ogy range, and in less than a fort­night have thicker hair thanks to its clever ac­tive in­gre­di­ent fil­lox­ane. De­vel­oped over nearly two decades, the tech­nol­ogy is akin to how we re­pair cracked wind­screens with the chem­i­cal process of a gel turn­ing into a solid in moist con­di­tions. With fil­lox­ane, the ac­tive in­gre­di­ent forms bonds within the wet hair strands, be­com­ing bulky when dry. The re­sult; much denser, thicker hair. Not only that, L’Oréal say the ef­fect lasts up to 10 washes, so the more you use the range the more body is cre­ated. Avail­able now, prices for the sham­poo and con­di­tioner start at €5.84 for 250mls.

EAU DE SAPHIR FOR A BUD­GET BODY BOOST

Saphir Per­fume is a range of 73 scents – 47 for women, 26 for men. The long-es­tab­lished Span­ish brand also op­er­ates in Italy and Por­tu­gal and car­ries fra­grances that in­clude all dif­fer­ent per­fume fam­i­lies and com­bi­na­tions, so if you pre­fer a fruity flo­ral over an ori­en­tal you will find a favourite.

SOOTH­ING SKIN BALM

It’s the dry skin saviour favoured by A-lis­ters Ni­cole Kidman and Char­l­ize Theron ap­par­ently, and it’s there for us mere mor­tals, too. If you suf­fer from dry, cracked skin, Eucerin’s Aquaphor will def­i­nitely help, and who doesn’t need some ex­tra TLC for the knees, hands and el­bows? It’s a sooth­ing skin balm gen­tle enough to use on chil­dren. It con­tains no colourants, fra­grance or preser­va­tives that can ir­ri­tate sen­si­tive skin. It has skin- soft­en­ing glyc­erin, pan­thenol and chamomile to calm skin. Priced €11.69. No, it doesn’t con­tain but­ter, but it has a se­ri­ously creamy shine so it’s the per­fect summer gloss. NYX has only re­cently launched in Ire­land. The range is ex­ten­sive with over 1,500 shades through­out its prod­ucts. Cult favourites in­clude the er­gonom­i­cally shaped Curve Eye Liner (€15.99) for pre­cise lin­ing, and Won­der Pen­cil, a nude for lin­ing lips to pre­vent lip­stick bleed­ing and for brighter eyes, €5.99. The Clarins au­tumn/win­ter makeup theme is ‘La­dy­like’ with a col­lec­tion of soft, smoky, long-wear­ing colour. This eye and brow kit is a su­per pal­ette con­tain­ing brow colour, eye colour and brow set­ting wax. Groom­ing tools in­clude a brow comb, sponge ap­pli­ca­tor and tweez­ers.
