After being introduced to Flourish Organics at the Spa in the Dingle Skellig I was curious to find out more about them … Especially when I heard that they are the go to range for two 5* hotels in Kerry ! I’m partial to a spot of 5* when the purse strings are loose enough ! They are the “go to” brand stocked in the 5* Muckross Park Hotel in Killarney and also the 5* Park Hotel in Kenmare. Had the luck to get contact details for the lovely Klaus of Flourish Organics who was so kind as to present me with a bag of treats. Klaus is so passionate about the work they do in Clonkeen and having used the products for over a month now I can see why.
Before I go on to talk about them I must share a memory ! Some of you will probably relate ! On opening and taking the obligatory sniff of the Rose Face Cream I was immediately brought back to my Grandmothers little glass jar of Ponds Cold Cream, the smell is just the same. So flowery – aka the Rose Cream. There definitely roses in there somewhere however they got them in.
Klaus did mention to me that its good for Rosacea … As I do have a bit of the good aul Rosacea on my cheeks i was sceptical but I’ll give anything a try.
Pause …. I’ve just had to skidaddle to a mirror to check how rosy my cheeks look. I think its hereditary ! I’ve just looked up things that trigger Rosacea and google reckons alcohol, hot or spicy food, emotional stress and heat are all triggers…….. Ladies if this is the case we could all have Rosacea.
I’ve been using the Vitamin E Face Cream every day now and I must say there is a “calmer” looking effect on my skin. Goes on easily and smells of Roses. I love the Peppermint and Tea Tree Foot Lotion from the Flourish Organics Range. It smells divine!. Leave it on the bedside locker and give your footsies a little treat before bed every night. They’ll thank you for it.
The Calendula lotion was one of the first I used … Maybe three months ago now when the weather was much warmer and I do remember finding it really cooling on my skin after a few hours at the beach so I reckon there’s lots of soothing ingredients in it 😀
I may seem a bit of a freak when it comes to cleansers. I think their are different cleansers our there to do different jobs. I prefer a good old cleanse when I have makeup on and maybe not such a hard working one when I just need to wash my face after a long day. The Flourish Organics cleanser is a nice light weight face cleanser, doesnt get foamy or gritty on the skin and is great when you want to just wash your face before bed time and have had no makeup on during the day. Apply it to the face, give it a little massage into the skin and wipe clean with a face cloth.
I’m all about face oils, I love them so that’s next on my list. If you like a product made from natural ingredients, home grown here in Ireland, Kerry even and admire the fact that such high profile hotels in the county are stocking it … well then its well worth a try.
Klaus does all the farmers markets and I’m sure he’ll be seen at the Christmas markets throughout the county. Go have a chat, you’ll find he’s a wealth of information on all things natural & organic ! I’m sure they’ll have lots of lovely gift sets for Christmas
