From the new arrival of gorgeous natural skincare products by La Canopée to the brand new Body Sugaring treatments, here is a round-up of my favourite beauty picks of the week that are all available at Skinfull Affairs.
SKINCARE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK
La Canopée Multivitamin Wake Up Cream
Fresh to the store in Skinfull Affairs, this innovative French cosmetic brand believes in 100% natural, cruelty-free, vegan and eco-friendly ingredients, as well as beneficial active formulas to care for your skin. The use of organic raw materials and the brand’s by-hand manufacturing process ensures high performance qualities on the skin, and its natural ingredients make the range suitable for all skin types.
Multivitamin Wake Up Cream is specially formulated to restore radiance in dull, fatigued skin. The active combination of organic coconut oil and rooibos works hard to replenish the skin with essential vitamins and nutrients. Your ultimate best friend after a long night, this miracle formula deeply hydrates while fighting oxidative stress, leaving the skin feeling soft, super moisturised and looking healthy, wide awake and glowing. Apply a pea sized amount to the face, neck and décolletage area, working it into the skin to stimulate collagen production.
INNOVATIVE BEAUTY BUY OF THE WEEK
As many of my own followers are aware, I am obsessed with Pit Putty. Handmade in Ireland, this range of 100% natural deodorant is known to be the most effective natural deodorant on the market, and is free from harmful toxins, chemicals, parabens and aluminium oxide. Originally vegetarian, Pit Putty has now eradicated beeswax from its formulas so that the entire range is now 100% vegan!
There are a variety of different scents to choose from, including:
Pit Putty’s Lemongrass and TeaTree deodorant is their bestselling product. The uplifting scent of fresh lemongrass invigorates the senses and fights anxiety and stress, while naturally antibacterial tea tree helps to prevent infection in the armpits- making this deodorant the perfect companion after hair removal from the armpit region! One tub of Pit Putty costs €11.95, which lasts for at least two months.
BUDGET BEAUTY BUY OF THE WEEK
Become a toned goddess with this gorgeous modelling wash paste. The hard-working formula helps to tone the skin while making it feel smoother and more supple; organic olive oil restores the skin’s natural moisture and replenishes the skin with essential vitamins and nutrients, while natural clay purifies and improves the skin’s tone. Organic mint extract strengthens the skin and refreshes, leaving the skin feeling squeaky-clean and brand new. This is a fabulous product to use post-exfoliating, for the ultimate cellulite-busting treatment!
BEAUTY TREATMENT OF THE WEEK
If you haven’t experienced the magic of sugaring, you’re in for a treat. Brand new to the extensive list of beauty treatments offered by Skinfull Affairs, body sugaring is your ultimate hair removal treatment. Often compared to waxing, sugaring has been practiced since the days of Cleopatra; the all-natural and non-toxic combination of organic sugar, water, and lemon effectively removes each hair from its root for quick and painless hair removal.
The Benefits of Sugaring at Skinfull Affairs:
- Sugaring works with hair growth, rather than against it (like waxing), resulting in less breakage, ingrown hairs and pain
- Hair only needs to be 3mm long to be removed
- Gently exfoliates the skin, improving the skin’s texture and appearance
- Only luxury certified organic, cruelty-free and environmentally products are used
The best thing about body sugaring treatments at Skinfull Affairs is that the treatment is turned into a full spa experience for ultimate relaxation. The salon’s gorgeous environment aids towards relaxation, while an experienced therapist carries out mini massages to quickly relieve any tension. Botanical foot compresses and hot stones are applied for even deeper relaxation, and you can avail of an organic, vegan lolly pop with a bikini wax!
MAKEUP PRODUCT OF THE WEEK
I am obsessed with the amazing quality of the Kripa Venezia makeup range that’s available at Skinfull Affairs. This cruelty-free makeup range is suitable for both makeup artists and makeup lovers, and is all 100% vegetarian. The only exception as to why the range isn’t 100% vegan is due to sustainable beeswax being an ingredient in some of the lipsticks.
Kripa Venezia’s Silk Compact Blushers are the perfect blush for all skin types. I particularly love the formula as it’s suitable for hypersensitive and pigmented skin, especially for those suffering from rosacea. The powder contains ingredients like corn starch and witch hazel oil, which help to tone down redness in the cheeks- which is extremely rare to find. Many victims of rosacea don’t use blusher, for fear that the product will only bring out the redness in their cheeks further, but thanks to Kripa Venezia’s organic formula, this blusher is the solution! The product also contains moisturising shea butter to retain nourishment in the cheeks.
What makes the Kripa Venezia makeup range stand out is that the formulas for the brand contain:
0% SILICONES, 0% PARABENS, 0% PHENOXYETHANOL, 0% MINERAL OILS, 0% PARAFFIN, 0% EDTA, 0% PROPYLENE GLYCOL, 0% TEA, 0% ALCOHOL, 0% ETHOXYLATES, 0% NANOPARTICLES, 0% FRAGRANCE
