Lush Angels on Bare Skin Review

Lush Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser (100g). Lush Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Cleanser (250g). No press samples included.

Lush’s Angels on Bare Skin has been a favourite cleanser of mine for years. I even reviewed it on a previous incarnation of this blog, since then I have changed the way I use Angels on Bare Skin and the original photographs were a mess so I thought it time to write a new post.

Lush Ultrabland Review

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser (45g), €8.95. Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser (100g), €14.95. No press samples included.

Sometimes you come across a skincare product that you use so often you (a) assume everyone else is using it too and (b) don’t talk about it as often as you should. Lush’s Ultrabland is that product. I’ve been using it for years.

Kinvara Skincare Cleansing Oil and Rosehip Face Serum Review

Kinvara Skincare Absolute Cleansing Oil (100ml), €19.95. Kinvara Skincare 24hr Rosehip Face Serum (30ml), €29.95. No press samples included. 

I’ve been a fan of Kinvara Skincare products for years. I first tried them back in 2011 and have featured them on previous incarnations of this blog, but they have been through some changes since then and my original photos were pretty awful so I thought it time to give them a proper review.

Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep Review

Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep (50 ml), €27.50. No press samples included. 

Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep is Vichy’s take on the sleeping pack; a popular Asian skincare trend. They are heavy hitting treatments that improve your complexion while you sleep. A souped-up night cream, if you will.

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream Review

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream (40ml), £24.95. Press samples included.

I’ve spoken about my trouble finding a BB cream that is pale enough for me before. When I mentioned this during a recent #IrishBeautyHour Twitter chat Janiro Ltd. offered to send me some sample tubes of the Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream to try.

Ziaja Sensitive Skin Enzyme Peeling Mask Review

Ziaja Sensitive Skin Enzyme Peeling (60ml), €4.99. No press samples included.

The Ziaja Sensitive Skin Enzyme Peeling Mask has been on my radar for a while, so when I spotted it in McGuire’s Pharmacy, Listowel recently I may have gotten a little over excited. What can I say, I love a good budget skincare product.

Review: Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser (118ml), €28. Personal gift, but no press samples included.

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser

I think my love of all things skincare comes from growing up with skin so dry I literally left a trail of flaked off skin cells behind me. Throw in sensitive skin that reacts to the strangest things and you’ve an explanation for my love of reading up on skincare ingredients.

My aim has always been to find products that do what they’re supposed to while not leaving my skin in a worse state then when I started. I have learned which brands work for me and which don’t. As a result my skincare stash is littered with products from Kinvara Skincare, La Roche-Posay, LUSH, Skin Essentials by Mariga, and Vichy. They work, so I tend to stick to them.

The one where Dr Jart+ suggests wearing your makeup to bed

Dr Jart+ BB Night Beauty Balm (50 ml), $38 (I’ll update with the € price when I have it). No press samples included.

Dr. Jart Night BB Cream

BB creams have been all the range for a few years now. Seriously, brands seem to be working their way through the alphabet with CC and even EE creams being available at this stage.

My track record with BB creams isn’t great, mainly because I’ve struggled to find the perfect colour match for my skin tone even amongst the Asian brands, but I understand the lure of them. These hybrid products are usually marketed as offering coverage with added skincare benefits, like SPF and antioxidants.
