Jo Browne Cleansing Balm

I’ve always loved a balm for my first cleanse to melt off my makeup. I’ve tried lots of brands, the Emma Hardie balm was my go to until I found the Irish Brand Jo Browne and her beautiful balm with Camellia Oil. you just remove a small amount from the tub, melt between fingertips and massage onto dry skin, safe enough to use around the eyes. I also adore her100% Eco- Friendly Bamboo Facecloth, it’s anti-microbial, anti-fungal, hypoallergenic and odor resistant. I would always follow with a second cleanse with a milky cleanser to ensure all makeup is removed. Cleansing Balm- €34 50grams and Joanne has created a a 20% discount for me.

He shi overnight Hyaluronic tan balm

I love this so much I added it to my online shop. As a red head with pale skin, I’ve tried all the tans on the market, Most of them are either too dark, too orange or too drying. I came across the He-Shi brand years ago and I will never use another tan! The Hyaluronic balm gives you the softest glow of colour while hydrating your skin. It contains anti aging properties and the results last approx 3/4 days.

NEOSTRATA triple action neck cream

I always remember watching my mum apply her creams down her neck onto her chest. When I was training as a Beauty therapist, the neck area was always included in the skincare, it’s an area that we tend to forget about. As skincare guru Caroline Hiron says TITTS ( Take it To The Tits) I assumed this product would be super rich and greasy but it’s lovely and light and I do feel it tightens and firms those horizontal neck lines. 

This is pricey at €78 for 80 grams but Shatabdi From Neostarta Ireland has kindly given me a 10% off discount code for you guys. Discount code- Alyson10

La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 serum & Aquagel SPF 30

These 2 were sent to me in a little PR package this year. I don’t know about you but trying to get my husband, Aaron to wear SPF in the morning has been such a task. His has oily skin and he finds most moisturisers with SPF either too heavy/sticky or break him out. La roche posay Aquagel is a winner and he loves it! It’s gel based, it’s super light and hydrating and doesn’t leave the skin sticky. Me, I ADORE this Hylau B5 serum, It instantly plumps out fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a hydration boost. To get the most of any Hyaluronic acid, always apply it to damp skin.  Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water, think of it like a big drink of water for your skin. No matter what skin type you are, most skins need a hydration boost.
