STELLAR Promotion: your summer beauty must-haves, right this way...

It may be Monday, but it’s a fabulous day as with stores around Ireland opening their doors to the public again, it means we’re one step closer to normality. Being able to take a stroll around the shops after work is something that won’t be taken for granted again, let us tell you.

So it’s a pretty exciting day, to say the least. The sun is even shining, so it’s almost as if there’s nothing stopping us right now.

With the fab weather and the excitement of being able to pop into the shops again, it’s only right to have a little beauty must-buy list, right? Right. This is where essence comes in, with their stunning new spring/summer collection.

There’s so much to choose from, whether you’re on the hunt for impressive lashes or a stunning new foundation. Instead of leaving you staring at all the products to choose from, we’ve gone and chosen our top picks for you. The absolute must-try products from the new essence range that simply won’t disappoint. Without further ado, let’s kick it off, shall we?


Now that we’re soon going back to being out and about all day, we’re gonna want a foundation with serious staying power. The ever so popular STAY ALL DAY 16H FOUNDATION is getting a very special upgrade because its formula has been completely revised!

It is now free of silicones, parabens, microplastic particles, alcohol, perfume and oil – all at the same unbeatable price and with the same performance that has convinced consumers for many years. Honestly, I love this for us. The foundation in a high-quality glass bottle has a super soft texture, gives the complexion an even, smooth look for up to 16 hours and provides medium to high coverage. Want even more? It’s also water, mask and transfer-proof. Divine!


The beauty all-rounder for a flawless complexion: the SKIN LOVIN’ CONCEALER easily hides spots and redness. Basically, your best friend in makeup form. Its lightweight, non-comedogenic formula is barely noticeable and nourishes the skin with moisturizing aloe vera. The concealer can be individually built up for medium to high coverage.


And to set your concealer? Look no further than the transparent SKIN LOVIN’ MINERAL POWDER. This makeup bag must-have provides a matt, blurry finish without weighing the skin down. Thanks to nourishing ingredients like aloe vera and minerals, the complexion looks natural and smooth.

The powder is also non-comedogenic and gives the skin a finer appearance. Thanks to its slim and compact packaging, it fits into any handbag and is sure to become an everyday beauty favourite. Simply irresistible!


Skincare with a glow guarantee: The HELLO, GOOD STUFF! FACE OIL intensively moisturises, nourishes and regenerates the skin thanks to the rosehip oil ingredient. Exactly what you want when it comes to good face oil.

With its two percent squalane content, the HELLO, GOOD STUFF! FACE OIL also makes the skin feel soft and smooth. The multifunctional oil is ideal as part of the skincare routine for all skin types or as a primer to really give your skin a boost of hydration.  With 94% natural ingredients, it’s a must-try this season.


One ‘Golden Milk’ for your skincare routine, please! Foodies have long been familiar with the turmeric drink thanks to its positive properties, but the super ingredient also works wonders in skincare. The light texture of the Milky Face Moisturizer with turmeric and oat water is quickly absorbed and soothes the skin. With 96% natural ingredients, it’s more than a goodin’ to have in your routine.

For a boost of freshness in the morning or as a primer for make-up? Both are possible because the moisturiser is a versatile companion for everyday use and is sure to fit perfectly into any handbag thanks to its travel-friendly size.


One good thing that came out of lockdown was making more time for our skincare and self-care in general. But now that we’re so used to a good face mask, it’s now a must-have in our routines so that step is not going anywhere. This refreshing face mask with moisturizing cucumber water makes tired skin look radiant and supple again in no time. With 95% natural ingredients, it’s like a boost of energy for our skin.

Simply apply the unique jelly texture evenly on the face, leave on for two to three minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water – and every face is sure to awaken with radiance and fantastic freshness.

The new spring/summer collection from essence is available now, in Penneys and selected pharmacies nationwide. Happy shopping!
