Thirst-quenchers for your hair, face and bod

For the body

Voya’s brand new Angelicus Serratus Body Oil (€37) takes its name from its primary ingredient and one of the most beautiful and mineral-rich strands of seaweed.


Scented with the brand’s signature notes of citrus fruits and the sea, the indulgent formula, a world first, helps to improve suppleness and elasticity whilst purifying and cleansing tired skin.  The rich seaweed oil is enhanced with anti-oxidant rosehip to slows the signs of ageing and evening primrose, which helps improve cell structure. A spa-level treat after every shower.


For the hair

Liz Earl’s new Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil (€21) conditions, softens and smooths hair, reducing drying time and taming frizz in one shot. The secret is a moisturising trio of coconut oil, radish oil and Kenyan Yangu oil.

It can be applied to wet hair before blow-drying or used to add the finishing touches afterwards.

For the face

L’Occitane’s Shea Cleansing Oil (€20) removes impurities and make-up (including waterproof mascara) in a single step.


Enriched with nourishing shea oil (5%), it transforms into a soft emulsion when applied with water to preserve the skin’s natural hydration. We like this because it works fast, feels really indulgent and leaves your face satisfyingly sparkling.
