Holos Skincare

I love discovering new Irish beauty and skincare brands. The latest  I discovered is Holos Skincare owned by Niamh Hogan. 

Holos is handcrafted in Wexford and all products are made in a socially and environmentally friendly way. I'm recently getting into more natural products for my skincare so am thrilled to come across another Irish brand. 

Niamh very kindly offered to send me a few products to try. Being pregnant, I wanted to check the products would be safe to use as some aromatherapy oils aren't recommended when pregnant. Niamh was really helpful and sent me her Happy Momma Oil and Love Your Skin Floral Toner.

The Happy Momma Oil (100ml €14.70) ingredients includes orange and neroli in sweet almond oil. These essential oils energise and take care of the skin by helping to prevent stretch marks. something I am very happy to hear. It also helps promote cell regrowth to heal scar tissue. There is also Vitamin E and fatty acids present to nourish the skin and keep it smooth. Since first try, I have used this religiously every night before bed. I find it a very relaxing experience. Although it's a body oil, I don't find it overly greasy and it sinks into my skin really quickly. This is fast becoming one of my pregnancy holy grails. 

Love Your Skin Floral toner (100ml €15.20) is made with Bulgarian roses and smells gorgeous. I'm usually not one for Rose but I find this not to overpowering and actually a very pretty scent. The toner can be used after cleanser or by itself. I tend to use it by itself first thing in the morning or if I am having a no makeup day. I then team it with my La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel to remove makeup. I find by itself, it does a great job refreshing my skin and cleaning any dirt or remaining makeup from my skin. Because there is Rose present, it would be a great product for inflammation or broken capillaries.

On another note, I just want to compliment Niamh on the packaging. It's very pretty and clean looking. Everything you could want to know about the product is written on the bottle.
There a lots of grey products on the website, I'm definitely going to be buying a few bits from Niamh once babs arrives. 

Have you heard of Holos?


  1. I love the sound of that Toner Anita, I love almost anything Rose...

  2. The toner is my favourite! Usually toners strip my skin and leave with that not so good sting, but Holos have really changed my mind about toners altogether xx
