Checking in early for a flight has never been so tempting now that The Loop and theloop.ie at Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2 has over 30 additional luxe new brands to choose from.
Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, The Loop at Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport is always a good idea. The largest beauty destination in the country is now double in size – which means even more luxury brands at lower prices.
All your beauty needs are catered for in the new-look Beauty Hall, with 90 exciting brands – 30 of them brand new to The Loop – across fragrance, skincare, make-up and haircare. Guests can save at least 15% on beauty compared to high-street prices.
In the fresh new Beauty Hall, which has just undergone a major redevelopment, shoppers can still get their hands on legacy brands like MAC and Tom Ford, but those clever enough to check in for their flight early can also nab new additions like NARS and bareMinerals, as well as luxury Irish exclusives like Le Labo and Maison Christian Dior fragrances.
And if that wasn’t enough, there are savings of at least 40% to be made across selected fragrances!
Shopping at The Loop has also never been easier. Travellers have the option to Click & Collect: make your purchase and pay online, and collect at the airport, or Shop & Collect: make your purchase at the airport and collect on your return flight.
For Click & Collect, between three months and 12 hours before you depart from your flight at Dublin Airport, and 48 hours from Cork Airport, you can visit theloop.ie and fill in when, and to where you are travelling. You have the option to collect your shopping ahead of your departure flight, or on your return trip. See theloop.ie for more information on collection points.
Shop & Collect is a free service for travellers flying within the EU. This service allows you to store your purchases at the airport and collect them when you return from your trip. Travellers will need photo ID, and proof of purchase to collect items.
Here’s a sample of some of the premium skincare, beauty and fragrances on offer for less at the new-look Beauty Hall, which is officially launching on Friday, October 25.
Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara, €25; RRP €30
This brush is designed with a tapered end to reach even the smallest lashes in the corner of the eyes. And no smudging – handy for those long-haul flights.
Kiehl’s Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask, €32; RRP €38
That’s right, avocado is not just for eating! This superfood is used to replenish, rehydrate and revitalise the skin in a matter of minutes. This mask leaves the skin feeling as smooth as the fruit itself, and avocados are also bursting with vitamins and minerals, meaning it works from the inside and outside.
Pestle & Mortar Exfoliate Glycolic Acid Toner, €24.50; RRP €28.95
Always a bestseller, this toner can be used day and night. With its ‘superpower’ ingredient of white daisy flower extract, skin appears brighter and pores are left unclogged. Check out theloop.ie ahead of your flight to nab this cult product.
Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum, 100ml, €164 *Irish Exclusive*
Another The Loop Irish exclusive. With notes of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox, Australian sandalwood, papyrus, and cedarwood, this niche fragrance is the ultimate luxury, or, if you can part with it, a very special gift.
MAC Ruby Woo Matte Lipstick, €17; RRP €21
Make an entrance with this vibrant red lipstick – seductively matte enough to pack a pouty punch, but textured enough to glide over your lips. Fans of MAC’s cult products will want to add this to their make-up bag.
Maison Christian Dior Perfumes Ambre Nuit, 125ml, €169 *Irish Exclusive*
This gender-neutral fragrance is an Irish exclusive to T2 Beauty Hall at The Loop. The animalic notes, combined with softer rose, amber and citrus, unleash a passionate but sophisticated fragrance with a sense of seduction. You might want to apply after your flight.
Tom Ford Pink Dusk, €41.50; RRP €49
Every sophisticated woman should have a Tom Ford lipstick in their make-up bag. With soft to more extreme tones on offer, each lip colour is made from rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil. A statement product for sure.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, €36; RRP €43
A popular everyday foundation, which leaves a glowing, satin finish. Best for normal, normal-to-dry and dry skin types.
Jo Malone Poppy & Barley Cologne, 100ml, €93; RRP €109
Feel like you’re at one with nature with this poppy-infused lively floral scent. Like all Jo Malone fragrances, elegant and sophisticated notes are guaranteed. We recommend ordering your favourite legacy brands online at theloop.ie to avoid disappointment.
