Olis Skincare* | Review

March 19, 2016

A few weeks back I saw this company Olis Skincare being discussed on Exposé and I instantly fell in love. They talked so highly about this company and its products and I was excited because it was an Irish brand. I immediately emailed the company asking for one or two small samples and within a week I had received four FULL SIZED products. I was delighted, to say the least.

I am a big fan of skincare and I firmly believe that a good moisturiser is the be all and end all of a good skincare routine as well as a part of a flawless make up look. Without moisturiser my make up applies unevenly, leaving horrible patches of dry, caked foundation and I honestly end up looking like a Chili Heatwave Dorito.

Olis Skincare  is an Irish skincare brand based in Co. Down which use 100% natural ingredients in their gorgeous products. Olis products are full of skin care goodness, being particularly great for people who suffer with eczema. 

Olis Lip Balm

Olis Lip Balm is a mix of beeswax and natural oils and butters making it so soothing and moisturising on your lips. Some of the ingredients include Cupuacu to keep your lips moisturised, Jojoba, Shea, Buriti oil and Raspberry to smooth and nourish. and of course, coconut oil which we all know is the best thing in the world! I love this product as I was sent the peppermint flavour and it gives a tingly feeling. It feels fresh on your lips which I love when I apply first thing in the morning. 

Olis Lip Balm is refreshing, perfect for summer to help mend and protect those dry and chapped winter lips, The product melts and soaks in instantly, leaving your lips feeling soothed and moisturised. 

A small amount of product will leave your lips feeling amazing so this little tub will literally last me such a long time (thank goodness!). The packaging also fits perfectly into my handbag, or purse, which makes it easy to grab when I need it. 

Olis Rejuvenating Moisturiser 

Olis Rejuvenating Moisturiser is an all over body moisturiser, though I only used it on my face but I LOVED IT. This is definitely my favourite product from the Olis skin care range. The scent of this moisturiser is amazing, with a blend of Lavender oil and Tea Tree oil the moisturiser gives off a subtle but calming smell. The product smooths over the face so easily, with a creamy but light consistency allowing it to quickly soak in and work it's magic.

There are many healing qualities to this moisturiser as a result of the Tea Tree which is a known anti-inflammatory, and Lavender oil which calms irritated skin and relieves muscle aches. I found that this moisturiser was amazing at clearing up any blemishes or imperfections on my skin and I woke up the following morning with fresh and clear skin. 

This is definitely a product I will be repurchasing as I loved it, and so did my skin!

Olis Hydrating Cream

Olis Hydrating Cream is again, a face a body moisturiser but I only used it on my face. At first I didn't like this cream as I thought it was too thick and I wasn't a huge fan of the herbal scent when compared with the scent of the Rejuvenating Moisturiser mentioned above. However I continued to use it and I do really love it now. My once flaky and dry skin is extremely hydrated and has never felt so moisturised EVER. My skin glows under my make up and looks so healthy. It no longer looks dull or dehydrated. 

I usually use this cream before applying my make up as it almost acts like a primer and allows my foundation to apply smoothly and evenly, leaving me with glowing skin and keeping it hydrated throughout the day.

Olis Therapeutic Cream

I definitely didn't use this cream half as much as I used this other products I was sent but that's not to say I didn't love it. Olis Therapeutic Cream can be used as a body moisturiser, a healing cream for hands, broken skin, and will provide soothing relief for Eczema and Psoriasis sufferers. This is definitely for people who have skin problems on the more serious side (hence why I didn't use it as much). 

I did however get a lovely shoulder massage from my Mum one day (thanks Mum!) and she used this and OH. MY. GOD! I had the best sleep ever that night! I was sooooo relaxed thanks to the blend of delicious smelling natural oils including my favourite - Lavender oil! However the main scent that comes through in this cream is the Tea Tree oil which is probably why it makes such a huge impact on people who have really dry skin.

Thank you so much for reading and do make sure to have a look around on the Olis website as they do have some really lovely products!
