NAT­U­RAL SKIN­CARE

En­nis­cor­thy-based brand Ho­los has been in business since 2008. For nat­u­ral face and body care, their hand­crafted oils and creams are hard to beat on qual­ity and af­ford­abil­ity. Cost­ing be­tween €14-€22, the range is filled with won­der­ful skin-nour­ish­ing in­gre­di­ents. Ex­pect to find ar­gan, frank­in­cense, rose and aloe vera in some of the items on of­fer, all el­e­ments that are highly val­ued in beauty. Seven lines have been de­vel­oped within the brand, all blended specif­i­cally for dif­fer­ent skin needs. For new mums or mums-tobe, check out the nour­ish­ing body oils de­signed for mum and baby bath time or mas­sage. See the range and lo­cal stock­ists at www.ho­los.ie.

ANY TIME OF THE DAY

Chapped skin, ragged cu­ti­cles and dry heels are just some con­cerns we ex­pe­ri­ence in colder months. Rather than buy­ing a num­ber of prod­ucts for ev­ery is­sue, one multi-task­ing balm will solve the lot. Popular brand Aus­tralian Body­care has launched Any Time Balm, €15.95, a creamy emol­lient suit­able for all skin types. With an­tibac­te­rial and an­ti­sep­tic tea tree, soya, and macadamia, it soothes and hy­drates split or parched skin, al­low­ing it to heal with min­i­mal dis­com­fort. Ap­ply where needed and pop into your hand­bag for on-the-go emer­gen­cies. For stock­ists see www.aus­tralian­body­care.com.
