Winter wonders

Whether you are attending a big night out or seeking a gift for someone special, this week's piece has it all.
Ren Perfect Canvas Silicone Free Skin Finishing Serum (€59) is a lightweight serum for use after moisturiser. It makes a perfect primer, as it leaves skin perfectly prepped for makeup, restoring skin's moisture balance and leaving it softly mattified thanks to agave extract.

Ren Perfect Canvas uses natural sugars to lift, tighten and fill, giving the look of a more perfect complexion. Pro-biotics enhance skin cell renewal and boost skin's immune system meaning less breakouts over time. It is less mattifying than ones that contain silicone and it is perfect for winter which can be extremely harsh on your skin.

Need a little more glitter in your life? Now you can shine through the holidays and beyond with the limited edition #GlitterGoals Kits (€19.50) from NYX Professional makeup. Available in three shimmering assortments, each kit features three lustrous shades of face and body glitter and one travel-friendly tube of vitamin E-infused glitter primer to set, hold and keep those crazy-bright sparkles in line.

Vichy has just launched the latest additions to its cult classic Dermablend range. A favourite among those suffering with various skin conditions, Dermablend is suitable to conceal and help treat skin concerns including uneven skin tone, rosacea, blemishes and scarring. The foundation range offers full coverage with an invisible fresh feeling, providing a natural 'bare-skin' look, which is buildable for long lasting results.

Recommended by dermatologists and used by makeup artists worldwide, the award-winning Vichy Dermablend range offers revolutionary formulas. I have used this and can attest to the wonderful finish it leaves without leaving the skin looking dull.

IsaDora Lip Desire Sculpt Lipliner and Lipstick (ten shades, €10.95 and €13.50 each) achieves the perfect updated pout – choose True Red or Mulberry for the right amount of drama.

So, with the festive season in mind, here are some gifts that are sure to delight your loved ones:

* Vichy Ideal Body (€12) offers a skincare range that offers much more than just hydration. Active ingredients traditionally used in face care, such as hyaluronic acid, have been combined with ten luxurious oils including passionflower, blackcurrant pips and rosehip to help women obtain firmer, nourished, smoother and more radiant skin. Ideal Body helps to restore smoother, softer, firmer, more even skin – achieving ideal looking skin on the body.

* Having experimented and learned the most traditional way of making the best soap and researched all the very best ingredients, Wild Oats was born. Made in Lismore, Co. Waterford, Wild Oats is a brand that I recently discovered. They have started their Christmas gifting with their Gentle Set (€24.95). Containing gentle soap and body and bath oil, delicately mixed with chamomile and lavender oils, with either mini soaps or bath milk sachet it is a treat that any age will enjoy. Available on
