Even with the Even with the clocks going back, it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier to haul our weary asses out of bed in the mornings.

So:  praise-be for this little beauty, from LA überfacialist Ole Henriksen.  (Eye bags being one of your biggest beauty woes, along with dark circles.)

It is as cooling as promised.  Nay, chilly, even.  But what really turbo-charges the effectiveness is the metal roller-ball.  At Beauty Bible we’ve long maintained that physical stimulation of the eye zone is the best way to blitz bags – a cold silver teaspoon will do (or Jo’s still hanging onto the brilliant silver ‘drumstick’ from a Crème de la Mer eye cream.

It features cucumber and eyebright, peptides and arginine (‘to promote wrinkle resistance’).  In fact, the soothing, revitalising formulation pre-existed in a jar format, but it’s this roll-on which elevates it to the realms of sheer eye genius.

Roll on Ole’s next creation.

Probably literally.

Leaving aside the fact that lovely Daniel Galvin Jr. always deserves a prize for the longest product names ever (beating even Estée Lauder into a cocked hat), this is a great ‘find’.

Remember No More Tangles?  (From Johnson’s, that was the only product which allowed a comb to glide through Jo’s hair, growing up.)  Packed with organic aloe vera, this is a contemporary spin which will make the lives of mothers all over the country easier:  just spritz on, and it’s easy-peasy to get rid of those knots.  (NB  It can be used on wet or dry hair.)  The whole Galvin & Galvin Kids range is free of parabens, SLS, mineral oil or animal ingredients.

We adore the cool-as-a-real-cucumber smell.  And applaud the fact that Daniel – who collaborated on the (late-lamented) Duchy Originals haircare range – is continuing his support of the Prince of Wales’s projects, with £25,000 of the proceeds from the range earmarked for the Prince’s Trust in the first 12 months.

We think that’s rather cool.
