Irish peat the answer to all HOLY YOUTHFULLNESS!

By Rachsbeautique - 10:30



A few weeks ago I was sent organic Irish Peat products to review. ÓGRA meaning youth, is Ireland’s only full range of cosmetic products that uses peat as an integral ingredient in its range. Based on the unique, time-defying, natural, organic components, such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements to treat, hydrate and restore the skin, ÓGRA brings all the goodness and preservative qualities of natural Irish peat to enhance, and rejuvenate the skin. Natural peat has been used in cosmetic formulations and beauty rituals all over the world for thousands of years. The rejuvenating benefits come from the abundance of essential oils, humic acids and lipoids in the peat. These penetrate the skin, re-establishing the Ph balance and encouraging blood flow.



So you may ask what is peat? Peat is main part of a bog (peatland). Peat is the material that is formed when plant remains partially decompose, so its the organic soil which is found under the dead vegetation.


So what does it do for your skin? 
• Promotes Youthfulness – Peat contains strong anti-oxidants that can combat free radical damage. It also promotes increase collagen production which helps to increase cell re-generation and slow down the ageing process.
• Astringecy – Binds together skin tissues giving your skin a smoother look.
• Detoxifier – It stimulates the lymphatic system and is therefore a very effective detoxifier. Peat removes dead skin cells, toxins and other impurities from your skin.
• Naturally high in essential oils, fatty acids and lipoids which penetrate into the skin re-establishing the skin’s natural PH balance.

So the goodies i received from Ogra were the Peat Face and Body Mask and the Anti Ageing Moisturiser. 






Anti-Ageing Facial Moisturiser

Anti Ageing Moisturiser



I am really enjoying OGRA's moisturiser. Since becoming a beauty blogger i have been trying out lots of products,  so I get to learn a lot about other face creams and moisturisers too. I don't stick to the same old brand anymore, and my skin is all the better for it. With pure Irish peat as a primary ingredient OGRA's Anti-Ageing moisturiser contains an abundance of mineral components, fatty acids, antioxidants and lipoids. The moisturiser increases collagen production and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles leaving skin revitalised and rejuvenated.
OGRA claims the following results after using their face moisturising product:


  • Skin is rehydrated.
  • Wrinkles appear softened.
  • Collagen production is increased.
  • Complexion appears more radiant.
  • Skin feels smoother.
My skin feels smoother, softer and more radiant. I am very happy with the moisturiser i love the light consistency and the fact that the product wonderfully melts into the skin.

Price EUR 59.95.


100% Peat Face and Body Mask
Peat has excellent moisture retaining qualities which improves skin elasticity and enhances health. The mask is fully black and it's not very thick. After applying it on my thoroughly cleaned face I kept it for 15 minutes as directed. I kept splashing it with water to avoid the mask drying out too quickly. Once washed off my face skin felt incredibly smooth and radiant. I enjoyed the result, and despite looking like the creature from the black lagoon wearing it, I really liked it. Below are pics of me wearing the mask on two different occasions.



 
The mask is suitable for any skin type and it is particularly good for problem skin such as acne, psoriases or  eczema. Some people experience a bit of redness or tingling on their face during or after the application of the mask, but this is totally normal as peat promotes the blood to come to the surface of the skin. An exchange of ions in the skin tissues occurs which has some positive rejuvenating powers; the harmful positive ions in the skin are exchanged for the good for your skin negative ions. Below is a pic of my lovely smooth skin having washed off the mask. 




The mask costs EUR 59.95 but it really is worth it. You get alot of product for the money and does have remarkable effects on the skin.


There you have it, peat does actually smell nice and works well in facial skincare. Ógra have an online shop at www.ograskincare.com and you can get it at the following retailers: http://www.ograskincare.com/stockists/

The packaging is very tasteful and although the products I reviewed are a little expensive, I would honestly repurchase the face and body mask and moisturiser again. Well done Ógra!



I am really enjoying OGRA's moisturiser. It kind of reminds me of my at some point favourite Estee Lauder face cream or moisturiser in its consistency, but I have been trying out lots of products since becoming a beauty blogger, so I got to learn a lot about other face creams and moisturisers too. I don't stick to the same old brand anymore as there are some better ones or at least as good ones out there. Some of which are only half price or even less than Estee Lauder products.

Now I am here to talk about OGRA's moisturiser. With pure Irish peat as a primary ingredient OGRA's Anti-Ageing moisturiser contains an abundance of mineral components, fatty acids, antioxidants and lipoids. The moisturiser increases collagen production and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles leaving skin revitalised and rejuvenated.

OGRA claims the following results after using their face moisturising product:

  • Skin is rehydrated.
  • Wrinkles appear softened.
  • Collagen production is increased.
  • Complexion appears more radiant.
  • Skin feels smoother.

I can't confirm the production of collagen as I can't measure it, but I do confirm that my skin feels smoother, softer and more radiant. I am very happy with the moisturiser and my husband is the best critic. He loves the light consistency and the fact that the product wonderfully melts into the skin.

Price EUR 59.95.

I enjoyed the result, so I give the mask my thumbs up even though the application process is a little bit messier than with some other masks that we can buy off the shelf.

The mask is suitable for any skin type and it is particularly good for problem skin such as acne, psoriases or  eczema. Some people experience a bit of redness or tingling on their face during or after the application of the mask, but this ir totally normal as peat promotes the blood to come to the surface of the skin.

A few weeks ago I was sent a new range of organic Irish Peat products to review. As soon as saw the word ‘peat’ included on the packaging, I was interested straight away. After working in the beauty industry for 4 years, any mud based product I came across has worked miracles. I’m sure by now you have all heard or used of a product that has contained some of the dead sea mud minerals in it before –  if you have then you would know that the benefits of such an ingratiates are endless, if you haven’t – then you have just learned something new. :)
ÓGRA meaning youth, is Ireland’s only full range of cosmetic products that uses peat as an integral ingredient in its range. Based on the unique, time-defying, natural, organic components, such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements to treat, hydrate and restore the skin, ÓGRA harnesses all the goodness and preservative qualities of natural Irish peat to enhance, and rejuvenate the skin.From the Roman Empire right through to modern times, natural peat has been used in cosmetic formulations and beauty rituals all over the world for thousands of years. The rejuvenating benefits come from the abundance of essential oils, humic acids and lipoids in the peat. These penetrate the skin, re-establishing the Ph balance and encouraging blood flow.
Of so some of you are going to ask – what is Peat – so lets get that cleared up first.
What is Peat?
Peat is main constituent of a wetland known as a bog (peatland). Peat is basically the material that is formed when plant remains partially decompose i.e. the organic soil layer to be found immediately below the vegetation layer of a bog. In its natural state, this peat layer will contain about 90% water and the remainder being dry matter.
These plant remains only partially de-compose due to the existence of an anaerobic condition on the bog. This condition holds intact the natural goodness that exists within the bogs vegetation. It is this same condition that also preserves the human bodies that have been found in the bogs in recent years. It has been established that these bodies have been many thousands of years old.
How is peat good for my skin?
• Promotes Youthfulness – Peat contains strong anti-oxidants that can combat free radical damage. This free radical damage is generally recognised as the main cause of premature ageing. It also promotes increase collagen production which helps to increase cell re-generation and slow down the ageing process.
• Astringecy – Binds together skin tissues giving your skin a smoother look.
• Detoxifier – It stimulates the lymphatic system and is therefore a very effective detoxifier. Peat removes dead skin cells, toxins and other impurities from your skin.
• The natural abundance of essential oils, fatty acids and lipoids penetrate into the skin re-establishing the skin’s natural PH balance.
