Last Saturday I was lucky enough to attend the launch of the new brand Urban Veda here in Waterford in Shaws Department stores. Urban Veda is a natural skincare brand that prides itself on using only organic ingredients to create it’s products. The range consists of four different skin care regimens and each regimen is tailored depending on ones skin type and skin concerns. Each regimen also has it’s own scent and outer packaging colour so that there’s no need to remember the name of the line or the name of the product but just the colour of it.
The event itself was displayed rather neatly in the centre of Shaws Department near the beauty section. The entire range was aligned on the shelves, which each of the different regimens getting it’s own shelf. They looked so pretty and colourful and to be honest the packaging is one of simplest yet eye-catching packaging that I’ve seen from a skincare brand.
Ciara, the Urban Veda representative was present on the day to explain everything that there is to know about the brand itself. She also explained that all of the products can be used on sensitive skin and acne prone skin. The great thing about this range is that it comes with a do it yourself questionnaire that can be filled out in order to allow you to know which range is best suited to your skin type. The Reviving range is the one that can be used universally however it is rose scented and I know not everyone likes rose.
In total there are four ranges. The Radiance range used Tumeric as it’s active ingredient in order to brighten the complexion as it’s a natural anti-oxidant.
The Soothing range uses sandalwood which is an antimicrobial and an antiseptic. The helps greatly with those of us that suffer with dehydrated and sensitive skin.
The Purifying range uses Neem Oil which has cleansing, toning and moisturising properties which is perfect for use on oil skin types.
As I’ve already mentioned the Reviving range can be used on all skin types as it’s a very nourishing range due to the rose flower water that is in it. Ciara said that she personally tends to recommend this line from Urban Veda for those that have mature skin or are tired. I personally think this line would be amazing for those that are just after having a baby. You can even gift basket the whole range and it would make an amazing baby shower gift.
Urban Veda have also released travel sizes of all there products so I’ve want to get them to try the brand before getting the full size. They also have parcels of their products in which you get three full sized products at a slightly lower price point that if you were to buy them individually.
I got given so many samples of the products on the day from the very generous Ciara and I also picked up the Soothing Hydrating Toner myself to try so I will of course have reviews coming up soon for all those products as soon as I’ve given a proper testing.
