Natural Born Beauty: Your 6-Step Summer Wellness Ritual, With Irish Skin And Bodycare Stars

VOYA’s luxurious and restorative self-care makes winding down a treat …

Wellness is the most important focus in beauty now. We want to use beautiful and effective products that make us feel good. And Irish born and bred VOYA has a mighty range of daily essentials and little luxuries to help make every day more naturally beautiful.

VOYA has led the way in results-driven, certified organic skincare for more than 15 years. The brand evolved from the renowned family-run seaweed baths in Strandhill, Co Sligo, first opened in 1912. And the Walton family still make everything here, as they celebrate the wonders of carefully hand-harvested local seaweed.

“VOYA has sustainability at the heart of everything we do, and has done since we started back in 2006,” says co-founder Mark Walton. This includes work to protect the reefs and biodiversity on the west coast of Ireland; using biodegradable materials, such as seaweed, for packaging; being carbon-balanced in operations and manufacturing; and partnering with Plastic Bank to prevent plastic entering the ocean. Clear conscience, clean beauty.

Try VOYA’s restorative wellness ritual for summer nights:


VOYA’s advanced facial range is powered by the naturally therapeutic properties of fucus serratus seaweed, together with a host of natural active ingredients, and is ideal for dry and sensitive skin. Totally Balmy Cleansing Balm is a buttery organic blend of algae extracts and fruit and flower oils – including lavender, geranium, vanilla and clove – to gently remove all traces of make-up and everyday impurities. Its soft and subtle scent makes cleansing a luxurious ritual, rather than a chore. The cleansing balm also comes with an organic muslin cloth. €54.


VOYA’s newest body launch is Indulgent Sea Marine Bath Salts in a glamorous, generous glass jar. Powerful minerals, from magnesium to zinc, help to ease muscles and soothe away tension in the body. And the chunky blend of Achill Island sea salts, Epsom salts and Himalayan pink rock salts make for a restorative, relaxing experience. The luxurious pot makes a fabulous gift, too (though it’s hard to part with). We love VOYA’s original seaweed bath (€26), which delivers the power of the sea straight into your bathroom, and this is an elegant alternative. Simply scatter into warm water, and breathe in … €39.


While you soak, take the time to rest your eyes. VOYA’s new Renewal Eyes 100% Organic Seaweed Eye Masks are made from pure organic seaweed – nothing more, nothing less. Laminaria is a proven antioxidant, and helps to promote collagen production in the skin. They are dried – just re-hydrate in warm water to release the seaweed gel, to hydrate the delicate skin beneath the eyes, and reduce puffiness and dark circles. Entirely sustainable, they are also ideal to take with you when you travel. €36 for four pairs.


Many of us have VOYA favourites. And the luxurious, Cosmos certified organic Angelicus Serratus Nourishing Body Oil is an enduring bestseller, with its blend of magnesium-rich seaweed, natural oils and botanicals. We’ve tried out a LOT of body oils, and this is one we return to again and again for its silky, hydrating feel and zesty fresh scent of lime and mandarin. Apply to damp skin to leave it supple and nourished. €44.


VOYA’s three new facial serums are gender-free and certified Cosmos organic. This Vitamin C Serum is ideal for brightening the skin and locking in vital moisture, via hyaluronic acid. Featuring a derivative of vitamin C that is stable and suitable for all skin types, it’s a vital antioxidant, offering protection against environmental damage. So it’s good to use both in the morning, and at night, for extra moisture. It smells of the sea, mixed with bright citrus notes – there’s bergamot oil, aloe leaf, lime, lemon and orange peel oils in there. An ideal staple, to share in the bathroom. €75.


Your final step before bed? VOYA’s Dream Crème Restorative Night Cream. This gently nourishing cream is a comfort blanket at bedtime. Naturally powered by active botanical ingredients, such as algae and rose of Jericho, cocoa and argan oils, and comfrey leaf extract, it’s specially formulated to rejuvenate your skin while you sleep. €68.
