This week . . .
Q This week, I'm going to be perky and chirpy every morning, because I've got a few secret weapons to ease my way into the day.
I'll be waking up after a good night's sleep, thanks to the de-stressing properties of The Body Shop's Divine Calm Essential Oil (€12.95). It's a gorgeous blend of lavender and camomile oils.
I'll be smelling the roses first thing with the paraben-free and flower-filled Vichy essentielles Shower Gel (€5.90), which is oh-so-soothing on sensitive skin.
I'm bound to be feeling energised after washing my hair with Bumble & Bumble's Tonic Shampoo (€12), a gorgeous blend of peppermint, rosemary and lemongrass, followed by a good dollop of Space NK's Life NK Uplifting Body Lotion (€18). Its zingy blend of shea nut butter and sweet almond oil, not to mention grapefruit, spearmint and peppermint, lingers all day.
Q IF YOU do only one thing this week, treat your other half to Aesop's Moroccan Neroli Shaving Duet (€52). Boasting a shaving serum and a post-shave balm, this soothing set is just what every man needs to work the groomed look. The balm is brilliant for calming and moisturising skin, and preventing inflammation or irritation.
