Nice and niche

Wednesday, 15th August, 2018 4:47pm

We have all heard of the well-known staples in the cosmetics halls in large department stores but what about the niche brands that are newer to Ireland in recent years?

Every bit as deserving of reviews as the more renowned ones, I am going to introduce you to three brands this week that you may not have heard of yet but watch this space as they are growing rapidly and bringing us some iconic products.


Epionce is about repair, repair, repair.

Epionce helps stop the cycle that damages the skin by working at the core of its own reparative systems. The products help stop the cycle that damages the skin by repairing and optimising the function of the skin barrier, helping reverse and block chronic inflammatory factors.

What sets Epionce apart from other skincare lines?

Powerful botanical ingredient technology calms chronic inflammation while repairing and strengthening the skin barrier. The creator, Dr Thornfeld, is a practicing dermatologist with over 30 years of skin research experience.

The Intensive Nourishing Cream (€89) is the only Epionce product to incorporate all three of the Epionce technologies in one product: anti-inflammatory, barrier repair and keratolytic.

A renew and fortify product, the Intensive Nourishing Cream was developed to provide intense hydration and skin rejuvenation for photo-aged skin. It is great for the face, but it can also be used for the neck and décolletage. A little goes a long way with this product, so plan on one jar lasting about three months with regular use.

Key benefits of the cream that I personally found included improved hydration, less flaking, decreased redness and skin irritation and brightened skin tone.

Declaré Switzerland has developed an anti-ageing skincare product that makes even very pronounced wrinkles invisible, optimally moisturises the skin with a long-lasting effect, leaving it with an unbelievable suppleness and a plump, smooth and youthfully fresh appearance.

Undernourished, thirsty skin rapidly and unmistakably shows that it is missing something, it appears dull, tired and saggy. Lines and wrinkles, together with an unpleasant feeling of tightness or stress, are the result of an insufficient supply of moisture.

This is exactly where the highly effective Ocean’s Best Hyalurontriple Booster (€59.50) concentrate by Declaré comes in, it supplies the skin intensively with moisture for 24 hours. Lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, the skin looks youthfully plump with a fresh, smooth radiance.

Who knew that Declaré had a sophisticated luxury sister brand, offering superior anti-aging care? The name Juvena is derived from the Latin 'juvenalis' for youthfulness, and the long-standing trusted brand has been created around the simple attractiveness of healthy glowing skin and its anti-aging effects

Juvena of Switzerland has specialised in anti-aging skincare for over 60 years. A recent breakthrough has seen the pioneering Swiss brand become the first cosmetic range in the world to integrate the skin’s stem cell potential into the core of beauty care.

Now available at leading beauty counters in Ireland, and in top spas and salons, Juvena promises fresh new skin that naturally renews and regenerates, for a softer, smoother and visibly radiant appearance.

Juvena’s Miracle Boost Essence is the ultimate moisturising beauty elixir for intense regeneration of stressed skin; while for regular day and night-time skincare, Superior Miracle Cream provides comprehensive deep regeneration of tired skin leaving it softer, smoother and visibly radiant. There are also calming refreshing cleansing creams with delicate water mint extract that prompt renewal and soothe skin irritation. For fresh new skin, newly created, Juvena will also be available at, as well as in top beauty destinations.
