L’Occitane Shower Shake with Almond Oil

L’Occitane Shower Shake with Almond Oil

Take a look at three new products out now

1. L’Occitane Shower Shake with Almond Oil

Want skin that’s oh-so soft for spring? Look no further than the new L’Occitane Shower Shake. Not only does this smell absolutely incredible (we can’t get enough of the stuff!) it makes your skin feel baby soft as well. Gently shake before use to evenly distribute the lovely almond oil throughout almond milk in the product. It’s quite runny so use a little at a time so as not to lose it down the shower drain. We love.

2. AYU make-up brushes

Irish make-up company AYU - whose name is derived from an Indonesian word meaning ‘very feminine and beautiful’ – is the brainchild of make-up artist Suzie O’Neill and was set up in 2015. So, if you’re after some high-quality brushes at great value, check out www.ayumakeup.ie. We really like the five-piece It’s All in the Eyes set for just €12.50 and the brushes come in a handy travel pouch as well. AYU have lots of new and innovative products in the pipeline so watch this space.

3. Catrice Cosmetics 21-piece brow collection  

Regardless of whether you prefer to fill in your eyebrows using pencil or pomade, Catrice have something to sit everyone with their new 21-piece brow collection. For precision and drawing on natural looking, hair-like strokes, we like the Slim’Matic Ultra Precise waterproof brow pencil in 030 Dark. The pencil is really soft and the shade will suit lots of skin tones. Another product we’re intrigued by is the Brow Comb Designer Pro – this is a waterproof pen, with a comb tip, creates not one but three strokes at a time. How clever!
