Ziaja Skincare : Olive Leaf Range

This year, Ziaja Skincare is celebrating their 25th year anniversary. To mark the big occasion, Polish founders Aleksandra and Zenon have decided to launch a new olive leaf range that is natural, effective and affordable. The products in the Olive Leaf Face & Body Collection are very budget friendly and they work like magic! Ziaja products are made from simple and natural ingredients that are safe to use on pretty much all skin types.

Ziaja is one of the leading cosmetics companies in Poland and eastern Europe with over 1,000 products available. To celebrate their 25th anniversary, ziaja has launched a new olive leaf range to reflect their beauty ethos of creating the best natural skincare products at affordable prices that are positioned and packaged with clear and honest messages.

Here are the two products from this collection that were recently sent out to me for review:

Olive Leaf Gel Scrub Micro-Exfoliating 200ml (€5.99)

As a huge face scrub fan, I generally like my face scrubs to be specifically for my face and my face alone, i don't normally like combination products. This product however is for body too, so I was a bit unsure about using it on my face.The Olive leaf scrub is a micro-exfoliator and it is full with tiny exfoliating particles. It is both a mechanical and enzyme exfoliator as it has the micro beads and the olive enzyme in it to exfoliate and renew the skin. Make sure to use this gently on your face as it can get quite red if you scrub even the slightest bit heavy handed. If you want a deeper scrub you should scrub faster not harder and in circular motions. I like the gel formula as its easier to wash off. My skin was left smoother after using this.The texture was completely refined. It was more of an even tone and any breakouts were dried up in a few days. A little goes a long way so you only need a small amount to cover your entire face. I much prefer this to my Dermalogica Daily Exfoliator as it is a fraction of the price and does the exact same thing for a fraction of the price. You can often pick this up in a duo pack on special offer. 

Olive Leaf Nourishing Face Cream SPF 20 (50ml) €5.99

The second product is the *nourishing face cream with SPF 20. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I've used this because I want to, as opposed to having to trial it for review. A lot of the time moisturisers are greasy on my skin, heavy and far too rich. But with this cream, it was light and my skin drank it up in minutes. It didn't hurt or irritate my face like a lot of moisturisers and there wasn't any issue putting my make up on over it. A light non-greasy cream with SPF20 that provides hydration, broad spectrum protection and skin regeneration, while olive leaf extracts helps soften and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin refreshed and hydrated. Suitable for all skin types and ages. This cream felt amazing on the skin, it is so light I was quite surprised as the texture felt heavy and thick on the finger tips but a little goes a long way. As for smoothing and softening those fine wrinkles only continuous use and time will tell, but it does sound promising. 

I have found a local supply of Ziaja in Carrolls pharmacy in Ballybricken, Waterford so I will be stocking up on new products from Ziaja soon. It is also stocked in Waterford Health Park Pharmacy and selected stores in Waterford.
