Yet another Irish skin care brand, Bia Beauty. I’m telling ye I can’t keep up with all these great Irish businesses popping up :) It’s great!!
A little about Bia Beauty: Founded by Herbal Scientist Tracey Ryan in Cork all Bia Beauty products are 100% natural and any emulsifiers and preservatives used are plant-based. Tracey does not test anything on animals either.
The tagline for Bia Beauty is ”Feed your skin” isn’t that beautiful? Your skin absorbs a whopping 60% of what you put on your skin so it really is best that the ingredients are natural!
I was lucky enough to get to try out her Orange & Grapefruit Cleanser & Exfoliator.
Another Irish brand for ye today, Human + Kind. I have to say the Irish skin care industry are coming out with some amazing brands/products these days!
Anyway I love body oils, I find them more moisturizing for my skin as they absorb really easily into the skin.
Human + Kind’s Body oil is an all in one meaning it’s a multitasker you can use it everywhere even for your hair to keep the ends healthy and conditioned.
Yay I found another Irish Business that I love. I got this gorgeous iPhone charm from Popin Charms, based in Swords, Dublin launched in July 2012 and run by Sarah.
Mothers Day is on Sunday, wow, that flew in!? I put together some nice gift ideas, most of the below are Irish too ;)
Well as you know by now I love to buy Irish and support big and small Irish businesses. I was looking for some unusual stocking fillers for the kids and I found these 2 small Irish businesses. Their service was brilliant, so quick with exceptional quality and prices.
The crayon roll is a lovely stocking filler for kids who love colouring, also very handy for long car drives. Brilliant value for only €3.50 I think!! Rachel from Ashgate Crafts based in Arklow, Co.Wicklow also makes babies bandana bibs and booties, baby changing mats and bags and make up bags, best part is you choose what material/pattern you want from a huge selection!
Bandana Bib, Kids Bag, Baby Changing Bag, Make-up Bag all from Ashgate Crafts
You can find all Ashgate Crafts details and more lovely items on her Facebook Page or Etsy Shop
Next I bought personalised Chocolate bars from Marias Little Wrappers because what child doesn’t love waking up to chocolate in their Christmas Stocking rather than an Orange like me and my friend were only laughing about the other day haha! ;)
Personalised Chocolate Bars-Maria’s Little Wrappers
These are so cute and I can’t wait to give them to the kids and as little presents to people. Maria also does wrappers for all occasions and has recently added tins with personalised wrappers which can then be filled with goodies
You can see more personalised goodies from Maria’s Website or Facebook page. Unfortunately Maria is not taking any more orders for Christmas but will still take orders which will be processed the 7th Jan 2012!
Have you bought any nice stocking fillers from any Irish businesses this year? Let me know in the comments?! :)
