All the way from Blarney in County Cork I want to introduce you to Bia Beauty, an exciting range of skin care products made from 100% natural ingredients.
The creation of Bia Beauty blossomed after Tracey Ryan took her love for plants and studied Herbal Science at Cork Institute of Technology. As a result of her studies Tracey says "I know how to select the most appropriate herbs and use them in the most beneficial ways".
Tracey sells all her handmade products on her website www.biabeauty.com. Individually they range from €4.95 up to €19.95. You can also buy beautiful gifts sets containing all her wonderful products. I think these would make wonderful gifts for Christmas.
This gift set contains: Detox Body Scrub 240ml and Apple Blossom Body Butter 200ml.
This gift set contains: Mellow Mandarin Moisturiser 60ml, Orange & Grapefruit Facial exfoliant and Cleanser 60ml and a 7ml Lip balm in Lime Pie.
The Feed Your Skin gift set included the whole Bia Beauty skin care range including the Lemon Myrtle Hand Cream 60ml.
I can not get over how fresh these products smell. Each product really is made from 100% simple natural food ingredients and are even suitable for dry skin. One thing I didn't know before discovering Bia Beauty is that your skin absorbs 60% of what you apply to it. If you are what you eat then your skin is also what it eats. That's why Tracey named her natural handmade cosmetics company Bia beauty (Bia being the Irish word for food). Tracey also tries to order her ingredients as local as possible. She buys bees wax from a bee keeper in West cork and chocolate from O'Connell's in Cork city.
I've liked all the Bia Beauty products I have tried out so far and if I had to choose, I say my two favourite products are the Apple Blossom Body Butter (200ml €19.95) because it is so nourishing to my skin and I love the apple scent. I also love the Lime Pie Lip Balm (7ml €4.95) again because of the wonderful scent and handy packaging. I love them all, the smells and textures are just perfect for me.
Support Irish this Christmas and buy Irish for your family and friends.
