combination skin


Since the weather cannot make its mind up, our skin is attempting to battle hot and cold – all in one week.

Add in hormones, pollution and skin conditions – and we've got some complex combination skin.

As we go to war with blackheads, dryness, oiliness and sensitive skin – Declaré have come to the rescue.

They have launched four new superfood face masks, which are tailored to individual skin requirements.

Using all natural, active power ingredients, you can really target each area of your face as each mask does a particular job. – which is the best news we've ever heard.

Additionally, all four are dermatologically tested and based on Declaré’s key technology for sensitive skin, so you know you're in safe, experienced hands.

Starting off with an exfoliant, this Goji Jojba peeling mask can be used all over the face.

The famous goji berry isn't just delicious to consume, but it also boasts a unique anti-ageing effect.

Antioxidants and secondary plant substances combine to protect the skin, while the amino acid content of the “super berries” prevents stressed skin and provides intensive moisture and care.

The heavenly plant-based mask removes dead skins cells and excess sebum to give you healthy and balance skin. 

Now, you'd have to be living under a rock if you haven't heard of the benefits of matcha and aloe vera. This mask combines the two and we get to reap the benefits.

For those who don't know, matcha extract is known for its phenomenal anti-ageing effect, combats free radicals with the aid of vitamins C and E, and prevents cell damage.

The active ingredients from the juice of aloe vera lastingly moisturise and soothe stressed skin.

So no matter what life throws at you, this mask won't let your busy schedule show on your face.

Perhaps you've indulged yourself in one too many takeaways, or some cheeky nights out – and you're in desperate need of a really good detox.

Then this next mask, the Bamboo coal detox is a must.

The bamboo plant has been a staple in many Asian cosmetics, as it will sort out oily skin, excess sebum and clogged pores in just 10 minutes.

But of course, it's totally gentle to the skin. 

If you're anything like me – dry skin is a bane of your existence. That's why we are delighted that Declaré has created the Algae marine gel mask. 

This mask is a moisture booster and regenerates the skin.

This one is particularly special as it contains the highly sought after skin God, hyaluronic acid. 

It is also paired with red algae, which is essential to lock in moisture and you'll notice that intensive moisture lasting 72 hours.

Despite the unpredictability of mother nature, you can always be skin ready this autumn.

Declaré's four products are limited edition, so you must act fast before they fly off the shelves. 



Real life doesn’t always pertain to a perfectly regular skincare routine. As much as I love looking after my skin, real life does get in the way sometimes, and it’s not always possible to stick to what you should be doing.

Equally, I know that finances won’t always allow us to snap up a load of snazzy products in one go. It takes time (and a bit of trial and error) to invest in the right products.

Here are five that are sure to set you off on the right foot and instantly improve how your skin looks and feels.

1. OSKIA Renaissance Cleansing Gel
This is an absolute cult cleanser. The product comes out as a rich, vitamin-laden balm, and quickly emulsifies into a light, oily foam upon contact with water. The best thing about this cleanser is that it has something to offer every skin type; it rebalances oil, soothes any sensitivity and helps massively with hydration, too. Worth every penny.

€37 from Space NK and CultBeauty.co.uk

2. Clarisonic Brush
There isn’t a skincare game-changer out there quite like the Clarisonic. With one use, skin will feel softer and far cleaner than ever before. This is a great investment because as products get used up and thrown out, you’ll still always be able to rely on this handy piece of kit. Oh, and Kourtney Kardashian’s a fan, if you care!

€149 from Brown Thomas and Space NK

3. REN Glycolactic Radiance Mask
Another one of those products that never fails to deliver. A thin layer of this citrus-scented gel mask works wonders at brightening and boosting the complexion – it’s a gentler and far more effective alternative to old-fashioned scrubs, and you’ll never look back.

€35 from Clerys, Debenhams and Space NK

4. Una Brennan Super Facialist Clay Mask
A cheaper treat for skin that’s brilliant for deep-cleaning oily or spot-prone skin. Plus, the price means you’re far more likely to keep up with regular use!

€11.99 from Boots

5. La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque
Every skin needs a good hydrating mask  and this La Roche Posay version will suit all types. Just a small amount worn overnight will leave you looking well-rested, with plumper, happier, healthier skin.

€17 from all good pharmacies and Boots
