Here’s what we’re loving this month

Thierry Mugler Aura Thierry Mugler Aura

Scent of a woman

Thierry Mugler has launched Aura, a new scent for summer, and to create it has used his sense of what it means to be a woman. Opening with super-feminine notes of fresh rhubarb leaf and sweet orange blossom, this scent settles into a warm heart of tiger liana, rich, sharp and smoky – think sugared almonds, the perfect blend of bitter and sweet. Aura ends with rich, Bourbon vanilla and warm wolfwood, delivering a baseline sensuality every woman knows she has, but only chooses to show when she pleases.

Gatineau Floracil Plus Gatineau Floracil Plus

A clean sweep

Floracil Plus is a new biphasic eye makeup-remover, formulated with an oily phase for dissolving make-up and an aqueous phase for rinsing it away. Formulated with aloe vera and hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and moisturise skin; witch hazel, meadowsweet extract and vitamin E to protect and firm skin and balance oil production; it is hypoallergenic, fragrance free, ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested and suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. And…da da daa…it works! Just a couple of gentle swipes and all your make-up all gone, leaving a soft and refreshed feel and all your eyelashes exactly where they should be.

Clarins SOS range Clarins SOS range

Hear my SOS

We’ve all been there – that moment of despair when skin feels dry and tight, even though you’ve been faithful to its needs. Luckily those skincare science boffins at Clarins are well aware and release three new masks this month to combat emergency situations just like this. SOS Hydra helps to intensely moisturise and restore radiance thanks to organic leaf of life extract and hyaluronic acid complex; SOS Pure Rebalancing clay mask has an absorbent, nondrying, powdery cream texture which purifies and restores velvety-soft skin; and SOS Comfort, is a nourishing balm mask with mango oil and mango butter for ultimate hydration.

What’s in a serum?

Twice I’ve heard lately: ‘why bother with serum?’ Well, as serums contain a high concentration of active ingredients and are able to penetrate deep into the skin they’re better equipped than your daily moisturiser to tackle specific skin issues such as acne, sensitivity and hyper-pigmentation. iS Clinical serums utilise scientifically-advanced, botanically-based ingredients to give effective, clinically-proven results and have gained somewhat of a cult following. Active Serum® (£68, 15ml) provides anti-aging, anti-acne and brightening benefi¬ts to the skin; Hydra-Cool® Serum (£48, 15ml) soothes dry and sensitive skin; and Pro-Heal Serum Advance® (£70, 15ml) is the perfect treatment for those with facial redness or acne-prone skin.
