I was invited by the lovely Ciara and Beth of C&B Therapy to come and try their C & B Organic Signature Facial which uses the Éminence range of organic skincare products.
Ciara and Beth are a very talented and experienced duo who have created a calm oasis in County Laois, focusing on beauty and well-being.

Beth's specialty is massage and she attended the Swedish Institute in New York City in 1997 and went on to work in many high end New York hotels and gyms, including Trump International and the Waldorf Astoria. An interesting fact about Beth is that she has spent time volunteering for NYPD, the Port Authority and FEMA in Manhattan. Her journey took her to Dublin, where she spent some time working at the Merrion hotel and then on to the Heritage where a friendship and partnership was born.
It's clear that these ladies are passionate about their work and their commitment to offering excellent service and I love the fact that they are friends as well as business partners because it gives a nice relaxed feel to the space. The salon is beautifully decorated in simple soft tones and is really soothing straight away - I felt at ease and calmed from the moment I walked in.
'Healthy skin is a reflection of what you feed your body, inside and out. That’s why we source premium ingredients from organic farms worldwide to ensure our products are USDA Certified Organic.The products smell so beautiful that it really adds to the experience, I think my favourite was the Citrus and Kale masque, it was so lemony!
Organic skin care is rooted in a holistic approach to farming and production. Unfortunately, modern agriculture robs the land of nutrients and often results in genetically modified ingredients. Choosing organic ingredients ensures that there are no harsh chemicals added. Our products do not contain harmful chemicals like added Parabens, Petrolatum, Mineral Oils, Propylene Glycol or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.'
Here's a full list of the products Ciara used:
It's worth noting as well that I have pretty sensitive red skin so I try to use gentle products and everything today was very soothing to my skin. It actually felt really soft afterwards and I love that it's finished off with the mineral sun defence which gives great cover and a lovely glow, meaning that you look fab walking out of the salon :)
The massage was fabulous too and I should mention too that my eyes had felt really red and puffy leaving my house in the morning but the combination of products and massage made them feel so much better.
Here are some of the Éminence products, I'm definitely a fan after experiencing how gentle they are.
