Homemade beauty buys for Christmas

Wednesday, 27th November, 2019 4:35pm

Shopping locally for Christmas is not only handy but good for the environment and local jobs too.

Codex Beauty is a brand that has just released its first range of products, and they are Irish. Codex Beauty is a global collective of clean beauty skincare brands that is responsibly revolutionising how the world views and maintains optimal skin health using ancient herbal traditions, innovative and vegan formulations and pharmaceutical-grade manufacturing, science, and transparency.

By developing products using carefully selected ingredients, formulation innovation and information transparency, Codex Beauty is empowering skincare customers with the products and peace of mind they deserve. Those of you that are familiar with the former Bia Beauty brand will recognise the range, which has had some pretty swanky additions.

Bia Cold Process soaps are made using the traditional cold process method, which preserves the potency and benefits of plant-based butters, oils and essential oils. Codex makes efficient use of every step of the soap-making process, including reserving the extra, leftover oil, often referred to as the 'superfat', to blend into the final soap. This lends a gentle, extra luxurious, silky smooth feel that won’t strip skin or disrupt its natural pH. A proprietary mix of essential oils further enhances the recipe with additional benefits, helping you feel cleansed, balanced, invigorated or uplifted depending on your choice of soap.

Green Angel is handmade in Dublin and its beauty products are a pure blend of organic seaweed and essential oils, combining luxury with outstanding skin and hair care, for even the most sensitive souls! The beautifully packaged Christmas gift-sets include beauty combinations that will appeal across the generations, from young sensitive skin, to hydrating and firming formulations for more mature skin.

Individual skincare items, such as Green Angel Precious Oils Hand Creams, are exceptional value and ideal as a luxury stocking filler or Kris Kindle surprise. So too are the heavenly scented Green Angel candles and diffusers.

The Green Angel Precious Hands Gift Box (€29.95) is essential for the cold winter months and contains three luxurious hand creams, enriched with organic essential oils that not only smell divine, but also help provide intensive skincare.

The award-winning Jo Browne beauty brand has added a new Bamboo Aroma Diffuser to its range of all-natural skincare and perfumes, handmade in Ireland. With light therapy that can be fixed to one colour or turned off, Jo Browne Aroma diffuser uses cool mist so it never gets hot and is so easy to use. Simply plug it in, lift up the cap, add water and three drops of your favourite Jo Browne blends.It's priced at €75 for the diffuser and €20 for each of six blends.

Complementing the all-natural brand values, the bamboo packaging not only looks gorgeous but is natural and ecologically friendly too. Six beautiful blends are available to use with the diffuser including fresh blend, calm blend, breathe, sleep, signature and Christmas, all priced at €20.
