3 skincare brands that might be flying under your radar

There's nothing that gives me a buzz like a new skincare brand landing in Ireland, whether it's brand new or one that's just launching here for the first time...

Kerstin Florian

The reason you might not be familiar with Kerstin Florian is that it's a spa brand, so unless you've had one of their facials, you might never have seen their range.

I personally love their Serum C products from their Correcting range, as well as their new Clarifying Probiotic Refining Serum, €65. This serum treats and congested skin, helps clear blackheads and improves general clarity and tone of the skin.

Kerstin Florian are in Ireland in spas like Aghadoe Heights Killarney, The Kingsley Cork, Spa Salveo at Knockranny House Hotel Mayo and Lyrath Estate Kilkenny.

Distillery is a new vegan skincare range from Avon (which you can order online, by the way  -- no more waiting for someone to call to your door...) that is centered around achieving results.


The range of five products contains a dreamy cleansing balm and a highly concentrated vitamin C powder, both of which I really like - anything that's in a balm texture I'm on board with, and vitamin C is probably my favourite ingredient.

Swiss Clinic haven't launched fully in Ireland yet, but their derma roller has launched into Harvey Nichols (in Dundrum Town Centre for those unfamiliar) and I'm absolutely dying to try it. It helps the absorption of your serums and other skincare, which can only be a good thing.
