This issue owner Helena Murphy, manager Frederika Le Cain and sales assistant Eimear O’Neil review a liquid multivitamin, natural deodorants and mouthwash, a mud mask, elderberry complex and chocolate and nut butter.

1. DAY CREAM

Frederika says: “I love Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream, I live by the sea so my skin is exposed to harsh Atlantic winds and the rose cream acts as a great barrier. It also has a feelgood factor with its stunning scent. It keeps my skin soft, smooth and moisturised.”

2. MUD MASK

Eimear says: “I love Dead Sea Spa Magik Mud Mask. It’s so cleansing, I’ve never used anything like it before. It leaves your face feeling super soft!”

3. RHODIOLA BOOSTER

Helena says: “Viridian Enhanced Rhodiola Complex is one of my favourites for mind and body. It’s great for helping cope with stress or when I’m extremely busy and gives me a great energy boost. An added bonus is that Viridian products have no fillers or binders and no animal testing. A win-win for me!”

4. NATURAL DEODORANT

Frederika says: “As a busy and physically active therapist I fully stand behind the Pit Putty range of natural deodorants. They are kind to the skin, contain no nasties and are beautifully fragranced with a choice of scents. Plus they really do mask odour, no matter how warm the day.”

5. NATURAL MOUTHWASH

Eimear says: “I can’t go without Jāsön Powersmile mouthwash. It’s fresh yet not too harsh. There’s no comparison between this and other mouthwashes! I’d 100% recommend it.”

6. LIQUID MULTIVITAMIN

Helena says: “Source of Life Gold Liquid is like my tonic! It’s a liquid multivitamin packed with so much it gives you that extra added nutrition that you might not be getting from your diet on a daily basis. I love the taste too!”

7. ELDERBERRY COMPLEX

Frederika says: “To keep my immunity and circulation boosted during the long Irish winter months I rely on Terranova Astragalus Elderberry and Garlic complex. It is packed with antiviral goodness to boost the immune system and battle any bugs that might be loitering around. The added garlic also benefits your circulation and heart health.”

8. CHOCOLATE SPREAD

Eimear says: “For something sweet I absolutely love Meridian Cocoa and Hazelnut Butter – it’s yum and a healthier version of some high street chocolate spreads!”

This issue sales assistant Tracie James, assistant manager Grainne O’Donovan, deputy manager Marjan Majidi, sales associate Adam Wheeler and manager Paul Holmes review vitamin C crystals, a natural deodorant, honey syrup, a protein powder and powerful probiotics.

1. PROTEIN POWDER

Paul says: “GNC Amp Gold Whey Protein Powder is an isolate high protein whey powder with very low sugar that tastes great and is perfect to add into a smoothie or after a run for recovery.”

2. Women’s formula

Tracie says: “I have found GNC Women’s Advanced Hair, Skin and Nails Formula amazing for my dry flaking nails. It took four weeks for me to see a difference and I haven’t looked back.”

3. POWERFUL PROBIOTIC

Grainne says: “GNC Ultra Probiotic Complex contains 50 billion active cultures that are amazing for digestion. By far these are the best probiotics I have tried. They also contain silica, magnesium stearate and titanium dioxide.”

4. HONEY SYRUP

Marjan says: “I love Manuka Health Manuka Honey Kids Syrup MGO 250. It keeps my little one healthy and is great for chesty coughs.”

5. MULTIVITAMIN

Adam says: “Nature’s Plus Source of Life GOLD Liquid is great if you’re feeling run down and need an energy boost. It contains vitamins A, B12, C, D3, K3 and other nutrients in one formula.”

6. NATURAL DEODORANT

Tracie says: “I have tried many deodorants and the one from Ben and Anna lasts the longest and even keeps me dry until the end of the day. Fab product from a vegan couple who decided to make their own.”

7. VITAMIN C CRYSTALS

Marjan says: “Solgar Vitamin C Crystals are a great source of this vital vitamin. ¼ of a teaspoon gives you 1125mg of vitamin C, super strong if you need a quick boost. Vitamin C helps your body to fight cell-damaging free radicals and aids collagen (connective tissue) formation.”
