These are the sort of things that you'd buy for Christmas and very definitely keep for life. I trotted happily round the new Cath Kidston shop in Dundrum yesterday, scooping up pressies (yes beaut.ie mammy, I got something for you) by the armload, and while I was in there, I checked out the beauty bits on offer. Lovely packaging, olde-worlde formulations using geranium, lilac, rose and carnation, these are pan-generational treats that you could give your granny and your best mate.
So what have we here, then? Clockwise from top left, Rose Box of 2 Soaps, €18; Mini Starter Set, €15, containing shower gels and body creams; Rose Body Cream, €22; Rose Travel Set, €22 and Mini Bottles Set, €22, packed full of body and shower treats.
If Dundrum's a trek too far, then you can also buy Cath Kidston beauty products at the new Arnotts in the Jervis Street centre, and at Avoca stores.
