The Doctor will see you now

Pharmacognosy is a made-up word, right? Wrong – it's the study of medicines from natural products, which is exactly the science behind Dr Jackson's all natural skincare range.

Insider love the old-school packaging, just the right amount of retro.

Dr Jackson leads expeditions from the rainforests of the Amazon to Indonesia and is currently working in Sub-Saharan Africa, identifying new drug leads from other traditional medicines, working with local healers, shamans, and indigenous plants. Put it this way, he knows his stuff.

And our favourite? The No 1 Skin Cream. Your perfect every day moisturiser with SPF20. Extracts of shea butter for hydration and Kigelia to brighten skin tone. 30ml, €48.

Available exclusively at Clerys

Travel trimmer

Slick and small for weekends away, the Remington Dual Track Travel Shaver (€19.99) provides barber-standard smooth results thanks to the 21 cutters on a dual track system. Good for 10 uses with each charge – there's no excuse not to look groomed on the go
