Beauty File: Cocktails that make scents

0
Have your say

Floral or fruity, what’s your preference? ARK’s Bath & Body Oils come in three scents - Living, Loving and Lounging - and each is infused with a heavenly aromatic cocktail. Quickly absorbed into the skin, they can be used in the bath, shower or as a leave-on body oil and cost £24 at the ARK counter in House of Fraser.

Dannii Minogue is a fan of the Loving range - a blend of rose, jasmine and orange flower with a hint of mandarin, lemon and patchouli- and burned the Loving candle in her X-Factor dressing room.

Open house to look younger

Want to look ten years younger without having to spend thousands on plastic surgery? Elements MediSpa on Thorne Road, Doncaster, will be revealing how at a 10 Year’s Younger open day on Wednesday, March 23.

From 11am to 9pm, industry experts will be on hand to offer advice about specialist treatments like laser skin resurfacing, botox, dermal fillers, Sculptra, laser skin tightening, Dermaroller, expert skin analysis and medical-grade skincare products.

The I-lipo machine, which aids fat loss, and the Visia Computerised Skin Analysis system, which helps identify skin specific problems, will be demonstrated.

Visitors can tour the elements day spa and get a free £40 spa pass with every one they buy.

Visitors receive a glass of bubbly and a voucher to claim a free make-up lesson (worth £40) and a free Visia skin analysis session (worth £20).

Concealer can’t hide its quality

It’s being billed as the creme de la creme of concealers. And at £46, it ought to be.

Creme de la Mer’s new Radiant Concealer lives up to its claim, though. It’s creamy enough to glide onto skin without dragging - especially important under eyes - yet thanks to its cream-to-powder formula, once in place, it stays there, rather than melting and settling into fine lines the way some concealers do.

The light coverage appears to magic away dark circles, mottled patches and blemishes. Apply it with its own little brush.

Tourmaline and malachite gemstones have been added to diffuse light and trick the eye, while marine and plant extracts reduce the appearance of puffiness. With regular use, chamomile extract and an Asian mushroom extract calm and soothe the look of skin.

In Ivory, Beige and Natural Warm, it’s available at House of Fraser in Meadowhall.

Moody blues for this Spring

Denim is a major fashion trend this spring. MAC’s latest colour collection Jeanius is packed with moody blues and inky indigos. Four new limited-edition denimised Eye Shadows are at the heart of the collection and a special range of blusher, lipstick and MAC’s ever-popular Lipglass glossers have also been brought out.
