You all know that I tend to faff around with different skincare brands, all in the name of blogging, of course :) I first came across Voya last year when they launched a Seaweed based anti-ageing toner, which I loved.
I have since moved on to their Totally Balmy Cleanser. I have become quite the fan.
Two words – pure luxury! It’s made using organic seaweed, well, we do have an awful lot of it in Ireland. I’m glad someone is putting it to good use.
It smells divine, feels divine, looks divine. As you can probably tell, I’m a fan :)
It’s quite thick when you apply it first, then as it comes into contact with the heat of your skin, it just melts. That means it also melts off the make-up on your skin too, which I love.
It comes with a muslin cloth, which I think is essential when using balms like this. Otherwise, you could end up with residue issues.
If you have parched, dry skin you will most likely adore this as much as me. The downside is the price. It is definitely a splurge at €40. It is luxurious though and feels like a treat. I might reserve my purchase for dry skin season.
Best of all – tis’ made in Sligo :)
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the aul’ muslin cloth. I go through quite a few every year and I wouldn’t have it any other way. They’re kinder than cotton wool and more effective than wipes. They slough away dead skin cells and stimulate circulation. What more could I want. After a few uses I pop mine into a white wash and they come out as good as new.
Voya now sell Organic Muslin Cloths which cost €12 for a pack of three. They arrive in a drawstring bag which is handy.
I found Voya online here or their Irish seaweed skincare products are available from spas around Ireland (listed on their website).
Can’t wait to try more of their products. I love supporting Irish business, no better time for it, but I would love this cleanser regardless!
What do you think of cleansing balms?
