Fresh face

A cooling mist spray is a useful desk drawer inclusion as temperature rises. Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray is suitable for sensitive and allergic skin and is preservative free. It helps with redness and even razor burn, and it won't cause makeup or sunscreen to rub off.

Portable pep

If there's no room on your desk for a proper fan, this USB mini portable fan delivers a powerful blast of air. Compatible with iPhone 5s and 6s, the motor is quiet and while it doesn't drain phone batteries significantly, it's better for short periods than for prolonged use.

Naturally does it

West Cork-based health brand Modern Botany has recently launched a new 100pc natural unisex deodorant/antiperspirant which contains 12 powerful and delicious-smelling ingredients such as lavender and sandalwood. It has micro-bacterial and deodorising properties and is vegan and vegetarian certified as well as being aluminium- and paraben-free.

Summer sipping

Staying hydrated in the heat becomes easier with the SHO water bottle. Made from stainless steel, its double-walled vacuum technology keeps drinks cold for 24 hours. Leak-proof and paraben free, it's available in a variety of sizes, while the mouth is big enough for ice cubes to fit in. When it's not so warm, the SHO will keep drinks hot for 12 hours.
