Recently at the late night charity casino of this years Green Awards I was a lucky winner. Part of my prize package was a hamper of natural beauty products. You all know Im a huge fan of natural beauty I was excited by this one! The brand was one of the nominees at the awards, a new brand in Ireland, coming straight out of North County Dublin – Naturamatics.
I received my little hamper of products very excited to try them out. It contained everything you might need for your natural skincare regime:
- Cleansing Wash
- Organic Toner
- Facial Oil
- Facial Scrub
- Skin Mask
- Lip Balm
Ive been excitedly trying out the products, and my current favourite is the Facial Oil. Im a big fan of the Trilogy brand of Facial Oils (based in Rosehip) so I was excited to see how the Irish brand matched this. I was pleasantly surprised. Though not as heavy (it is appropriate for oily skin), it leaves my dry skin beautifully moisturised and silky soft and makes a fabulous base for my main moisturiser.
One other thing that gives it an edge is the smell. Its DIVINE!! Geranium and orange, it gives your skin and senses a lift daily.
Well done Naturamatics, Im loving your work and look forward to trying out the rest of the range.
