Popular nat­u­ral skin­care brand Dr. Hauschka is the lat­est brand to ar­rive into Marks & Spencer. Fans of the brand will be de­lighted that they will now be able to buy prod­ucts such as Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream in the M&S beauty halls, where it will join one of the more eclec­tic col­lec­tion of beauty brands. Among the other gor­geous ranges avail­able from Marks & Spencers at the mo­ment are La Mai­son De Sen­teurs can­dles, fab­u­lous Diego Dalla Palma make-up, nail supremo Leighton Denny’s su­per pol­ishes, and Apivita, a great Greek face col­lec­tion.

WIN THE BAT­TLE WITH CROW’S FEET...

The pop­u­lar­ity of Génifique Serum for the face has been un­prece­dented. Launched in 2009, it has won more than 130 beauty awards and cel­e­brated sales of 9 mil­lion bot­tles. Lancôme has now re­vis­ited the for­mula and cre­ated a more pow­er­ful com­plex for the serum, and in turn, in­tro­duced it else­where into other prod­ucts. The new Ad­vanced Génifique Yeux Youth Ac­ti­vat­ing Eye Cream tack­les fine lines, dark­ness, signs of fa­tigue and hy­dra­tion. Based on the ef­fec­tive­ness of the serum in a skin-care range, this would be the per­fect every­day part­ner. Coun­ters na­tion­wide, €52.

LIVE A LIT­TLE LUX­U­RI­OUSLY

From El­iz­a­beth Ar­den, the Un­told Color Col­lec­tion will only be on­counter for a short time, so check it out if you’re a fan of qual­ity neu­trals. The col­lec­tion is lav­ishly pack­aged in gold cas­ing, as you would ex­pect from Ar­den, and even though it’s make-up, it com­bines many great skin­care in­gre­di­ents to im­prove skin while you wear it. Both the Eye Shadow Quad in gold and browns (€34) and duo colour Pre­ci­sion Eye Lin­ers (€22) con­tain vi­ta­min blends to pro­tect and re­pair skin. Also in the col­lec­tion, new shades Glam­orous Gold and In­trigu­ing Vi­o­let in the Lu­mi­nous Lip Glosses, €22.50. Si, the Ar­mani scent fronted by ac­tress Cate Blanchett, is a so­phis­ti­cated fra­grance. Like so many oth­ers from the de­signer, it’s mod­ern, chic and easy to wear. To cel­e­brate its first birth­day Ar­mani have launched Si In­tense, an in­tox­i­cat­ing ver­sion that adds cas­sis, vanilla, rose de mai and patchouli to cre­ate an al­to­gether more sen­sual scent. This fra­grance is a deca­dent treat to wear. Embrace the dark side. Mark the date in your di­ary for the launch of this per­fect win­ter scent. It’s as edgy and sexy as you’ll find in a fra­grance this sea­son. Black Opium has a cof­fee aroma, fol­lowed by pear and pink pep­per. Bring­ing in white jas­mine and orange blos­som next, the scent set­tles on patchouli, vanilla and cedar. Not for­get­ting the boys, it has been an­nounced that cute Scot­tish ac­tor Ger­ard But­ler will be the cam­paign face for Boss Bot­tled. He is due to ap­pear on bill­boards and TV ads for the sea­son to rep­re­sent the fresh, woody scent. The hugely suc­cess­ful male fra­grance is fresh and fruity on top with a spicy heart, some­thing I’m sure we would all like to think that Mr But­ler has too. Who has the re­mote? We need to see the ads.
