This week I've tried a few products I really wanted to share with you all.
One brand in particular has impressed me no end.
Bia Beauty is a Cork based natural handmade cosmetics brand and a little package arrived in the post this week for me to try.
Bia Beauty concentrates on herbs and plants that are beneficial to our skin and bodies. Bearing in mind that our skin absorbs 60% of what we apply to it, it makes sense that we should all think carefully about what we douse ourselves in. Especially when we're all so much more aware of the dangers certain products can cause in the long term. With so many beauty products citing artificial ingrediants Bia Beauty is a breath of fresh air.
Let me take you through the scrumminess I was lucky enough to sample.
The little gift box is adorable! And it's worth remembering when you're starting your Christmas gift buying that Bia Beauty offer many gift sets ranging from 34.99 Euro.
These little sample pots are extremely cute and I've had every single one open and I've tested them all, such a hardship I know ;)
Shall we go through them?
A beautiful fresh scent, this body butter smooths onto your skin easily and absorbs quickly leaving such an amazing smell clinging to your skin.
I'm not usually a fan of exfoliants but this is extremely gentle on your skin. Just enough ''bits'' for a gentle exfoliation your skin will feel new after using.
Gosh it's orange in a pot for your skin! Again absorbs beautifully and leaves skin feeling super soft.
I've been using this on my hands non stop. Being a mum and housewife my hands can sometimes look really worse for wear. A saviour cream in my opinion.
The ''grit'' is slightly larger and more frequent in this body scrub but it really does scrub away dead skin leaving a fresh layer of moisturised, glorious smelling skin.
Apart from the fact these products leave your skin feeling fresh, new and luxurious they also smell utterly delicious. For once I believe I've found products that actually smell like their names suggest. I can't even put into words the delight I felt when I opened the little pots. I do need to inform you they are not edible because, believe me, they smell good enough to try and eat. I even made the husband and wee dude smell them. When a beauty product impresses the husband you know you're onto a winner. These are impressive beyond any products I've written about before here on the blog. That's a very strong statement for me to make I'm sure you understand but I stand behind it 100%. You will smell DEVINE. And you will also have moisturised, exfoliated and detoxed skin. I personally wouldn't and couldn't ask for anything more, could you?
There is a piece de la resistance....
Bia Beauty lip balms come in a range of flavours and going by this delicious balm I'm going to stock up on more. It has my lips feeling moisturised and soft even when the cold air and hot air conditioner has left them quite tingly and horrid. I did lick some off just to check taste - again, not edible lol but it smells good enough to entice you to try! Really itching to try their Chai Latte flavoured lip balm!
All in all, impressive doesn't cover it in my humble opinion. They are a company I will go back to in order to buy gifts and treat myself.

I'd like to thank Bia Beauty for getting in touch to bring to my attention such a range of incredibly refreshing products. My skin, hands and lips thank you :)
