Ziaja - SenSitive Skincare Range

Hey Ladies,

I hope you're all well. Today's review is about a new favourite brand of mine, Ziaja. I fell in love pretty quickly with their range of Micellar Waters which you can read a full review on here. It didn't take long after that for me to be bitten by the curiosity bug.

I have to admit, I was quite the skincare snob before Ziaja came into my life. I was a firm believer in 'you get what you pay for',  all that has been turned on it's ear. Ziaja was sort of the equivalent of a new boyfriend, you don't expect much, but then he pleasantly surprises you, and you feel guilty for under estimating him in the first place. So ladies, let me introduce you to my new boyfriend.

The Ziaja SenSitive Micellar Water contains zero parabens, alcohol or perfume. Perfect for those with easily irritated skin, those who are prone to flare ups, if you have sensitive eyes, or you're a contact lens wearer, this has you covered. My skin can be quite dehydrated to the point of actually being sensitive, I found it perfect for tackling those issues.

The SenSitive Skin Creamy Wash Gel for Face & Body has been a godsend to this house. My daughter suffers with sporadic cases of Eczema, and can be quite sensitive in other areas too, which as you can imagine, tends to cost a pretty penny when it does happen, in the past I would have gone for brands like Elave etc, but this does exactly the same thing, at a fraction of the price. It contains no soap, silicone's or parabens, which of course is a fantastic thing when it comes to little princess's with sensitive skin issues.

The Soothing Day Cream with SPF20, is fantastic for so many reasons. I find it makes an excellent base for foundation, as well as providing you with your daily dose of SPF protection. It sinks in so quickly, it's light, airy and just leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and protected!

The second part of your dynamic skincare duo is the SenSitive Skin Firming Night Cream. Don't be perturbed by the fact that it's a 'firming' night cream, I think at this stage no matter what age we are, we all know that prevention is better than the cure right?! Again, like the day cream before it, this is free of nasties, and has a lovely emulsion texture to it, and really feels like it's doing your skin some good. It is one of my favourites from the range.

Last but by no means least, is my stand out product from the collection. The SenSitive Skin Enzyme Peel. Again free from all nasty ingredients, and not just that, but this is one hell of a product for a number of reasons. This is comparable to a number of more expensive peels I have tried, The SkinCeuticals Retexturing Activator €72, REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Peel €38, NeoStrata Glycolic Peel €35 to name but a few, this Ziaja SenSitive Skin Peel does exactly the same job as all of the above, and for a tiny fraction of the price compared to most products, coming in at €4.99. It really makes you question why you've been spending huge amounts of money on your skincare items when you have a brand offering you exactly the same if not a little better, at such a genuinely reasonable price! This product is just perfect, I'm currently trialing the other peels in the Ziaja range so keep an eye out for that review coming soon!

That's it for now ladies,

  1. Wow, I've been hearing more and more on this brand lately! The peel sounds excellent. Where would I find out if it's stocked around tuam? x

    1. I can absolutely find out for you Hun, there's always the website to order from, so just keep that in mind. If there are no stockists in Tuam, I'll have to have words with my Godmother, she actually owns Duffy's Pharmacy, do you know it at all? x

    2. I love about 5 minutes away, if it was there that would be so handy. Small world! I'll call in n check tomorrow. I'll let you know :) x

    3. I'll see her tomorrow, so I'll talk nice to her! If not, the website is a great way to go! Very quick delivery, but hopefully we'll get it into Tuam asap ;) x

  2. I have one of the enzyme peels on right now, can't wait to wash it off and feel the results. The soothing face cream also sounds lovely.

    1. The enzyme peels are amazing. Firm favourites with me! The face cream is SO good! :) x
