Kinvara Organic Skincare | Review

There's nothing that excites me more than discovering new Irish products - especially beauty products! Kinvara Skincare is a relatively new product range, hailing from Co. Galway. Kinvara skincare use plant extracts in their products, all of which are organic and come from all over the world. Dr. Joanne Reilly, the owner of the brand, worked as a scientist in Asia herself and "saw first hand the amazing potential of plants in caring for your skin". I tried and tested 3 of their products; Rosehip Face Serum (€28)*, Rosehip Day Cream (€24)* and Absolute Cleansing Oil (€20)*. 
I was impressed with all three products if I'm honest, especially the Rosehip Face Serum. I have oily-combination skin so serums and heavy moisturisers can be quite hit and miss with me. Serums are meant to be applied before moisturiser, to help renew and restore the skin deeper than your moisturiser goes. It smells beautiful, feels luxurious and sinks in quicker than most other serums I've used. I use it around 3-4 times a week, applying 1-2 pumps at nighttime and I noticed an instant difference in my skin within a week. After using it for a few weeks at this stage, my skin looks firmer, plumper and not as dull as before. It's definitely something I'll be continuing to use.
I'm quite a fan of cleansing oils, so I was excited to try out the Absolute Cleansing Oil. I've been using Shu Uemura's one for over a year now and rarely remove my makeup without using one in my routine. The Kinvara cleansing oil smells beautiful and it quite simply does the job. The container is greater; oil products without pumps are so messy, as I'm sure many of you know! I remove my eye makeup first during my makeup removal process, then apply 2-3 pumps of this oil on to my dampened face (with makeup still on). It instantly breaks down the makeup and makes removing the rest of it with a cream cleanser easier and quicker. Cleansing oils aren't the cheapest of products, so €20 for this one wasn't too bad.
The Rosehip Day Cream is an anti-ageing formula, containing plant oils and vitamins to ensure your skin is nourished throughout the day. I really like this moisturiser, although I found it quite oily for my skin type and started using it as a nighttime moisturiser instead. It smells beautiful and fresh, you only need a small amount of the product itself to moisturise your whole face and neck. 60ml for a moisturiser is also quite a generous, it's lasting me ages! Using this in conjunction with the Rosehip Serum shows the best results, even after a few days.
Overall, I was really impressed with Kinvara. It's great to see such fantastic products come out of this country and I'm excited to see what else the brand has under their sleeve.
