The Irish Independant's Beauty Expert, Triona McCarthy recently spoke about some of her favourite beauty products including our very own Super Nutrient Illuminating & Firming Body Exfoliator. Check out what she had to say:
I grew up in west Cork, so I've always had a real affinity with the sea. As a child, my summers were spent at Barleycove, which is on the way to Mizen Head; it's such a special part of the world. This is why I'm always excited about beauty products that celebrate the sea by making use of its natural elements - especially seaweed.
Seaweed is full of vitamins and minerals that are wonderful for soft and hydrated skin. It's an anti-inflammatory too, so it's great for eczema and rosacea. Seavite founder, Patrick Mulrooney, formulated the range after witnessing how the eczema-prone skin of his daughters, Katherine and Jane, was soothed by the therapeutic powers of the ocean.
The organic Irish seaweed-based skincare range is celebrating the importance of the sea as part of the national 'Oceans of Learning' campaign.
I'm a little obsessed with the Seavite Super Nutrient Illuminating & Firming Body Exfoliator, above, €17.50, which is gentle enough to be used on the face as well as the body. I follow it with Seavite Super Nutrient Firming & Toning Body Lotion, €25, see seavite.com.
