In our new weekly feature we’re picking a highlight that’s landed on the Her.ie beauty desk and giving you the lowdown on the beauty break-through, the budget and the reasons you should buy….
The Beauty Buzz
If you would opt for more “me time” over more money in your bank account, you’ll appreciate this line. The Neom Lifestyle Stress Audit (yup, it’s a thing!) revealed that 58 per of women would choose “more time” over “increased income” as the solution to their rising stress levels. We can relate. The new Neom Organics On The Go Essentials Range is billed as a reminder to “make time to stop and take care of yourself”.
The Beauty Brand
You might know Neom best for the brand’s amazing candles, so you know you’re in safe hands when it comes to expertise on fragrance. The brand was founded in 2005 by Nicola Elliott, a former Editor for Glamour, and Oliver Mennell. Elliott decided to study aromatherapy and spotted a gap in the market for quality products without any compromise in the process.
The Beauty Break-though
The new range comprises of mini-products in travel-friendly containers, using Neom’s 100% natural essential oil blends, “formulated at the perfect level to hit the bloodstream and begin working immediately”.
Scent to Sleep
Three minis created using Neom’s Scent to Sleep Tranquillity fragrance. A potent blend of 19 essential oils, including English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine, to help you drift away to slumber.
Scent to Instantly De-stress
A blend of 24 essential oils including lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood, all selected for their ability to instantly de-stress, even while you’re on the move.
Scent to Boost Your Energy
A blend of 17 essential oils including grapefruit, lemon and rosemary, to provide a burst of natural, raw energy.
Scent to Make You Happy
A blend of 8 essential oils including wild mint and mandarin, to powerfully lift your mood whilst you’re out and about.
The Beauty Budget
The RRP for all products is €10.

We Say: Neom is a brand that knows what it’s doing when it comes to fragrance. We’ve long been devotees to their amazing range of candles, and now some beauty and wellbeing products have wormed their way into our hearts too. We know as well as anyone how tough it is to switch off, and so the Scent to Sleep is a go-to from the off and one we’ll be purchasing again and again. Energy Boost is another firm favourite – and we found that even the act of taking a moment to spray and breathe deeply can press pause on the day long enough for you to look up from the desk. Sometimes, that’s all you need.
