I’ve been in denial about Christmas this year (the fastest year ever – official). But when these festive lovelies arrived from The Burren Perfumery, I sudden felt very Christmassy indeed and thought it was time to break out the twinkly lights.
As you can see from the photos above, there’s something quite special about The Burren Perfumery. Every detail is considered, from the carefully selected organic ingredients in its handmade products to the clean, modern packaging.
Taking its inspiration from the wilds of the Burren, Co Clare, the family-run perfumery specialises in nourishing skincare, perfume, balms, body lotions, candles and soaps. Best of all, the perfumery’s products are made on-site, by hand, and in small batches.
And as someone with sensitive skin, it’s a joy to find chic, natural fragrances and cosmetics that are not loaded with harsh synthetic chemicals.
With seven individual perfumes to choose from, I selected the woody and masculine Winter Woods — a delicate herbal blend featuring Rosemary, Bergamot, Lemon and Cedar, so perfect for the everyday. My only issue with it is trying to hide it from Mr TBI…
The gift set also features a Winter Woods body lotion, liquid soap and two sample sized Woodland Balancing day and night creams. I’ve since purchased the full size Balancing Juniper & Cedarwood Day Cream after falling in love with the sample. Light and easily absorbed, my skin literally drinks this up while my shiny T-zone is mattified and controlled – no easy task, believe me. I literally cannot recommend this enough.
This year more than ever, I’ve tried to buy from brands with integrity and a small environmental footprint. So if you’re looking for skincare with a conscience, then look no further than The Burren Perfumery – it’s my pick of 2018.
*PR Sample. Gift sets start from €30. The Burren Perfumery products are available online at www.BurrenPerfumery.com and in Avoca stores nationwide.
