Five pharmacy favourites you must try

During the past while it has become really evident how important our local pharmacy has become to us.

Many of them had to reimagine the service and the products they sell. Some brands though will always have a place in my heart for an at home pamper session or quick gift purchase to say thank you.

Whether it is a little luxury or a practical shampoo, it is worth a trip to see what to fill your basket with. You might even grab a bargain!


Nuxe has just launched a new innovation with the very first certified organic Huile Prodigieuse. Nourish your glow with a product with the innate ability to bring you back in touch with your senses with its delightful 100 per cent natural-origin scent combining soothing notes of neroli, bergamot, and lavandin. The efficacy of the product is apparent for the first application with dry skin being transformed almost instantly. I honestly love the original but think this Neroli Bio version may just have my heart.

This Works

Its Perfect Legs Skin miracle is a rich, tinted body serum with vitamins C and E and natural caramel to enhance any skin tone and boost leg confidence. Apply liberally to bare legs after a shower or whenever you need. An antioxidant cocktail of vitamins C and E supports collagen synthesis for visibly firmer skin. Arnica helps even out skin tone, fading bruising and soothing shaving rash while natural caramel sculpts the legs with an instant sun-kissed glow. I love this for various reasons, but you cannot beat the fresh feeling on your legs.


Nivea is one of the brands that is most recognisable from the shower to the dresser. Its Q10 Firming + Radiance Gradual Tan Body Moisturiser instantly moisturises the skin, noticeably firming and improving skin elasticity within ten days to leave the skin looking and feeling beautiful.

The powerful ingredient works to fight free radicals such as UV light and pollution by injecting energy into the skin, effectively helping the skin repair itself and regenerate new cells. The result is smoother, tighter firmer skin with a radiant glow.

Dirty Works Lovely Scubbly

Your dull or dry skin doesn’t stand a chance. Pumice and peach seed powder gently scrub you down while moisture magnet shea butter and vitamin E keeps you hydrated. Gentle enough to use daily, it still packs enough punch to keep skin soft as a peach.

Meanwhile the Bubble Trouble is a bubble bath to end all bubble baths ! This best-selling soak with lavender and chamomile will really get your tub bubbling. Lay back, relax and let the stress of the week fade away.


The new Aveeno hair care is clinically proven to relieve and soothe, itchy, dry scalps, while simultaneously targeting unique hair needs. Gentle enough for daily use and even for sensitive skin, the formulas are sulphate free and pH balanced, respecting the scalp and hair’s natural pH levels by gently cleansing hair without stripping it of its natural oils and helping to maintain a healthy moisture balance for the scalp. Hair is left shinier and softer, and the scalp is left feeling soothed.

With six different blends in the range, women no longer have to choose between caring for their scalp, or their hair: everyone can find the right balance for their unique hair type, to deliver hair that looks and feels healthy, nourished and radiant.
