Are you looking for long lashes that still feel soft and natural? Well beauty brand No.7’s newest mascara promises to give you just that. Our beauty expert Odette puts it to the test, but what was her verdict? Check out the video to see what she thought.
Kiehl’s have been providing expert tailor-made skincare since they opened over 160 years ago in New York City. Using the best of cosmetic and herbal knowledge, they’ve developed a wide range of amazing products that will leave you and your skin feeling fantastic from tip-to-toe. Our beauty writer Odette called into their flagship Dublin store to find out more:
I arrived into the Kiehl’s Wicklow St store full of excitement. I’ve used and loved a couple of Kiehl’s products in the past, like their Eucalyptus Lip Relief Balm and their Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, but I’m definitely still a newbie to the range.
I was greeted by a lovely skin consultant who asked me in depth about my skin, my skincare regime and any problem areas I had before deciding what products would be best suited to me.
She then pulled out products for an entire start-to-finish skincare regime tailored just for my skin and tried them out on me, so I could feel the texture and consistency. I have to say I was so impressed by how right she got every product, I easily could have bought the lot!
Anyone who pops into the Kiehl’s flagship store on Wicklow St. will be offered a complimentary and bespoke skincare consultation, as well as deluxe sample of some of the products to try at home.
Also, when you fall head over heels for any of the products recommended to you and spend over €75, you will given a full size Crème de Corps body moisturiser for free, but only while stocks last, so get down ASAP as it really is too good of an offer to miss! I am now a total Kiehl’s convert and can’t wait to go back.
The beloved French (affordable) luxury skincare brand La Roche-Posay have just released another product that is bound to achieve cult-status in no time. With solutions to every skin care problem thanks to its healing French thermal spring waters, you know your skin is in good hands.
Our beauty writer, Odette, got to try out their new CC Cream and here’s what she thought:
We all suffer with a bit of skin redness from time to time, especially those of us blessed (or cursed!) with paler Celtic skin. La Roche-Posay’s newest offering, specially formulated for sensitive skin, not only evens skin tone and covers up redness but also actively helps to reduce and correct it over time.
Rosaliac CC Creme comes in a universal shade that will work with almost all fair to medium skin tones, leaving you with an even and natural finish all day. There’s enough pigment that you could easily use it as a light foundation or as a great base under your regular one. Just a little translucent powder over top and you’re good to go.
It can be built up to give light-to-medium coverage while still providing a really natural, barely-there finish. And with a lovely scent, it leaves redness-prone skin corrected and your confidence boosted. Say goodbye to the rosy “glow” we love to hate!
Before and After – La Roche-Posay Rosaliac CC Creme gives such a natural finish!
