Give a Gift

Give the gift of great skincare this Christmas with Elave.Happy.Skin.

Great value skincare sets from Elave Skincare make ideal presents for the one you love – or why not treat yourself!  Selene Daly, Registered Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Dermatology, looks at two of our most popular collections

At this time of year, the shops and online sites are coming down with all sorts of special festive skincare gift sets but, popular as they are, I have to hold my hand up right away and confess that, for a number of reasons, I am not a fan.

Take Advent Calendars. Every snowy window or festooned door has a different skincare product behind it, whether it is a scrub, a refiner or an exfoliator. The problem is that they may not be suitable for your skin, and certainly very possibly not for reactive skin.

In addition, although Advent Calendars may be a novelty and a bit of festive fun, do they really offer value for money?  I don’t think so.  In fact, I think they are really quite expensive for what you get – and especially when what you get is not what you need for your particular skin type.

Elave Skincare Essentials are available all year round and guarantee to combine formulations which work together to benefit dry, sensitive and eczema-prone Irish skin. They are also great value and so very well worth buying as a gift, or even as a seasonal treat for yourself.

Another thing which impresses me about the Essentials kits is that the box is already very attractive, so there is no need to spend more money wrapping them up.  Plus, the packaging is fully recycled and recyclable, so you can help save the planet while  being kind to your purse at the same time.

The Elave Skin Balancing Essentials kit is super value at €39.95 (saving over €18)

and offers 360-degree winter weather facial protection via three vitamin and bio extract-infused formulations: a cleansing gel, moisturiser and daily SPF skin defence.

Elave Skin Balancing Cleansing Gel (200ml) is a unique blend of natural foaming cleansers, camomile and antimicrobial Manuka Honey, which remove daily residue, oil, make-up and impurities.

Elave Skin Balancing Moisturiser (50ml) with vitamins B5 & E, glycerin and hyaluronic acid restores the skin’s natural balance without stripping out the natural oils or blocking pores.

Elave Daily Skin Defence SPF45 (50ml) offers very high UVA/UVB protection all year round. This invisible zinc, non-comedogenic formula will not congest your skin or leave a grainy residue when it comes into contact with other creams.

The Elave Skin Hydrating Essentials kit offers further great value at €25.95 (a saving of nearly €10) for a duo of products which focus on hydrating even the most compromised skin barrier.


Elave Sensitive Hydrating Cream Cleanser (200ml)is a vitamin and aloe vera-enriched formula for the gentle removal of make-up and impurities. Elave Sensitive Intense Moisture Surge (50ml)is a coconut oil and shea butter combination which is rich in vitamin E and glycerin, to repair and surge moisture into the skin.

All Elave’s multi award-winning formulations are created with super reactant skin in mind and are guaranteed PETA Cruelty-free and Vegan (except for formulas containing beeswax or Manuka Honey). If your skin looks and feels good, you will probably feel pretty good too – so that’s a great gift for anyone over the festive season!

Over half the respondents to a survey by Irish skincare brand Elave have revealed that sensitive facial skin reactions definitely affect their confidence.

The survey*, carried out as part of the Elave.Happy.Skin. campaign, confirms that sensitive skin issues affect how people feel about themselves in their personal, social and work lives.  

Nearly half of those questioned said they feel ‘frustrated’ by facial skin irritation, while 1 in 8 (12.5%) say they feel like hiding away.

Three out of 10 respondents reported experiencing sensitive skin reactions every month, while 1 in 10 said they have to cope with irritation on a daily basis.
