Killer legs and sultry eyes

This week, I'm saying goodbye to dry scaly skin on my legs.

To that end, I'm making sure to exfoliate my (soon-to-be super) pins every couple of days with a body brush, and afterwards I've been applying moisturiser while they're still slightly damp because this way they absorb the lotion better.

(If you're not feeling too energetic, then check out Nuxe's Soft-Skin Booster Body Scrub, €24.50, a blend of bamboo, rice, lychee and walnut, which does all the hard work and leaves your skin feeling super soft.)

I've also been indulging with Clarins' new Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm, €18, (above). It comes in coral or natural pink, but I have to confess a serious yen for the red variety. It may look like lipstick, but its texture is super light, sheer and moisturising. It's the perfect accessory for a sundowner on a lazy summer evening.

I've also been looking ahead to see just what's hot for autumn and Armani's Eyes to Kill Palette 10 (€65, below) may be irresistible. It's a mix of satin-finish mauve and black, along with a metallic aubergine shade with a fabulous sheen.

A red-hot alternative is also on offer from Bobbi Brown with her yummy Chocolate & Navy Collection (€80), which has five truly lovely shades for eyes with both matte and shimmer finish, not to mention a lip colour, lip gloss, long-wear gel eye liner and a mascara.
