11 Irish-owned beauty products that are well worth your euros

Support local businesses and look good while doing it.

WANT TO SUPPORT homegrown beauty brands more, but don’t know where to begin? Here are some of our favourite Irish-owned products.

1. Kinvara Skincare’s Absolute Cleansing Face Oil, €22.95

Cleansing your skin with oil may sound scary to some, but it’s actually one of the best ways to get all that makeup off. This oil from Galway-based company Kinvara Skincare is just the ticket.

2. Pestle & Mortar Hyaluronic Serum, €43

Pestle & Mortar, owned by Kildare woman Sonia Deasy, has had tremendous success with its Hyaluronic Serum – which again, sounds scarier than it is. Basically, it’s packed with lovely moisture, plumping and soothing the skin.

3. Waxperts Wonder Pads, €8.95

These exfoliating pads were designed by Dun Laoghaire waxing queen Ellen Kavanagh to prevent and treat ingrown hairs. No more annoying red bumps after shaving or waxing? Sounds good to us.

4. Fuschia Eye Dust, €14.50

These lovely eyeshadow pigments can be used dry for a sweep of colour, or wet as an eyeliner. We particularly like Brown Brass, an absolutely gorgeous copper shade.

5. Bia Beauty Detox Body Scrub, €19.95

This heavenly-smelling scrub (made in Cork) uses apricot kernel grains to buff the skin and a blend of lemon, ginger, black pepper and essential oils to ‘detox’. A once-a-week treat for the bod.

6. Blank Canvas F20 Buffer Brush, €14.99

Blank Canvas stocks just about every makeup brush you could ever need (and at great prices too) but we’re singling out the F20, a flat-topped brush perfect for buffing in foundation.

7. Seavite Super Nutrient Comfort Cleanser, €25

Seavite has been around for donkey’s years – it was originally formulated to treat rosacea and severe eczema, and this cleanser has no ‘hidden nasties’ to irritate sensitive skin.

9. Brooke and Shoals candles, €22

OK, so not technically a beauty item, but… aren’t candles essential to the pampering process? Wicklow candle makers Brooke and Shoals do beautiful scents, so there’s no need to be forking out €60 for Jo Malone. Find stockists here.

10. Handmade Soap Company Shaving Soap, €9.95

One for the lads – this shaving soap, handmade in Slane, will moisturise the skin while making you feel very fancy altogether. You’ll never want to buy a can of foam again.

11. Mianra Witches Brew Soap, €7.20

Another Cork find, these beautiful soaps are a lovely treat for bath time. Witches Brew contains Irish seaweed, French clay and silk, with herbs and oats for exfoliation. And who can resist that name?
