It’s back to school season!
We can’t believe September is here and we’ve been keeping busy at VIP HQ getting our new issue ready to go on shelves next week. So keep your eyes peeled!
Here’s what we’ve been loving this week!
Staff Writer Anja loves…Dermalogica’s Stabilizing Repair Cream
I hate to say it folks, but we are getting into autumn/winter once again, which means our skin is going to need some extra TLC. However, for those of us who have sensitive skin, myself included, it can often be difficult to find a product that keeps our skin protected without breaking out in red patches. And regardless of the cause, one thing is certain – sensitive skin’s barrier is often damaged and needs a chance to recover.
Enter Dermalogica’s new Stabilizing Repair Cream, a barrier-repairing moisturizer that helps put a stop to sensitive skin. It’s packed with ultra-soothing actives that calm the skin on contact and boasts soothing Cica and a botanical blend that relieves symptoms like itching, redness, and dryness. So, whether you have sensitive skin every day, or only a few days a month, this moisturiser helps the skin barrier become more resilient and less reactive with results showing as little as a week later – trust me I’ve seen it!
You shop the Stabilizing Repair Cream for €75 at Dermalogica.ie, Dermalogica Flagship Stores and authorised Dermalogica stockists nationwide.
Digital Editor Bronwyn is loving…Mix Up
There’s something about a pre-mixed drink. Call me lazy, call me boring, call me basic. But there’s just about having something ready to go immediately that sparks joy. It is also a joy if you’re having a girls’ night and you don’t want to be messing around with spirits and mixers. Especially if it’s BYOB.
There’s something chic about having your little can and being ready to go.
I’m loving the new Mix Up cans that come in two different flavours – delicious Gin and Tonic and Vodka, Lime and Lemonade. The perfect drinks for the girls.
You can pick up your can at Tescos nationwide for €2.29!
Weekend editor Sláine is loving…Briogeo’s Farewell Frizz™ Blow Dry Perfection & Heat Protectant Créme

If there is one product everyone needs for their hair, it’s a heat protectant. Seriously the impact of heat damage is not to be underestimate, and is part of the reason why I pretty much gave up straightening my hair a few years ago. But, of course, it is fun to change up your hair every once in a while so if you are wanting to try something a little different and picking up a hot blowdryer, straightener, or curling wand, then you’ll want to invest in a good heat protectant.
And I’ve found my staple, the Briogeo Farewell Frizz™ Blow Dry Perfection & Heat Protectant Créme.
Not only will it protect from heat damage, but it also leaves your hair feeling silky and smooth. There is no tacky-ness or residue, and it works great.
I don’t plan on going back to heat styling all the time, and I don’t think it would work miracles if you are using heat 24/7 but it is great to have for special occasions and when you’re feeling creative.
