Beauty Essentials We Can’t Live Without
Pestle & Mortar
Pestle and Mortar has always been a firm favorite of mine and recently launched this luxurious double cleansing system in January and has won numerous awards in such a short space of time.
It has three components one being the erase, secondly the renew and lastly the muslin cloth. It’s super easy to use basically you use both cleansers at night starting with erase using the harder side of the muslin cloth with warm water to remove and to finish your cleanse use renew and use the softer side of the muslin cloth with lukewarm water. This luxurious muslin cloth is made with 100% Indian cotton. And in the morning I just use renew to freshen your skin. Suitable for all skin types and genders.
Retails at €76.
Nugg Charcoal Skin Detox Mask
Nugg charcoal skin detox mask is a must have in any beauty regime, it’s 97% natural or natural derived ingredients. I love everything Nugg makes and they recommend you to use it once/twice a week. Designed as a pod for one application, which is great as they keep them fresh, I generally pop it in the fridge 30mins prior to cool down my skin in the summer months. I apply to a cleansed face and leave on the skin for 10 minutes once your time is up rinse off with a muslin cloth. This mask is suitable for all genders with normal, oily and combination skin or just the t-zone.
Retails at €4.70 which is available at www.beautybay.com and all leading chemists worldwide.

Ishga is a luxurious Scottish seaweed organic skincare brand. We have a seen a huge impact of beard’s in the past few years and it’s here to stay! Ishga’s Beard & Shave Oil has a luxurious base of sweet almond, safflower seed oil and jojoba oil that will add intense moisture to the skin, without blocking the pores. This is a must for any man with/without a beard. I love the fact it’s a multi tasking product you can use before your shave to soothe and prevent in-grown hairs and prepare the beard area for a soft clean shave to give your skin a hydrated feel and you can also use it to tame your beard giving your beard a more groomed look and softer appearance and last but not least you can use the oil as an overnight repair for particularly dehydrated skin.
