This Week’s Beauty Hits and Misses

Rise of the Evening Fragrance
With autumn fast approaching, fragrance houses are looking toward the new season with deeper, darker scents which are perfect for when the evenings draw in.  Dior Miss Dior Le Parfum overdoses the original fragrance for sensual take on femininity, Givenchy Dahlia Noir tells the tale of a bloom swathed in darkness, and Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme unfolds in waves of voluptuous flora inspired by the night.

Oh Mia, Oh My
Beauty gadgets are big news, and this little wonder is the most talked about of the bunch. We’ve lowered the price of the bestselling Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skincare System so that everyone can reap the benefits of skin that is five times more clean, refined, smoothed and evened out. It’s also available in an array of candy colours – they’re impossible to resist.

Festival Packing Blues
It’s an absolute nightmare trying to squeeze four days’ worth of clothes, toiletries and other essentials into one tiny backpack (yet strangely self-affirming when you manage it).  Make the job easier by downsizing your toiletries – this weekend a mini Klorane Oatmilk Gently Dry Shampoo and my L’Occitane Mini Pure Shea Butter 8ml tin are accompanying me to Reading.
