Skincare essentials for MEN

By Michael Quinn, MD Beauty Belle.

As the owner of Beauty Belle, I thought I would write this article being a man it is important for men to realise they also need to spend some ME time. It is no longer a taboo for men to look after themselves and hopefully this will encourage other men to treat themselves…

For all the ladies reading this, you too can treat your men to some of these essential men’s skincare products and help them to look their best…

Here I reveal what my favourites/ essentials are and bear in mind I only use a few products and certainly not a junkie….

Essential Skincare for Men

As most men have oily skin, I would recommend a very simple routine and the QUIN Cleansing Gel used daily is an essential product. Even you use nothing else this will keep your skin looking healthy and fresh. I love this product and will last you for ages… I have 2 sons aged 17 and 21 and they use this product as well as this is great for acne and blemishes…

The product is multi-layered so deep-cleansing, moisturises and adds elasticity so really is all you need and use each night before going to bed.

There is 200 ml in the bottle so will last for ages and priced at just £6.50/ €7.15 and can be used by whole family teenagers etc.

2 other great products I would occasionally use are the QUIN Dead Sea mud mask and the Timeless Truth Clarifying Sheet mask, which is ideal for men’s oily skin…

Price: £6.50/ €7.15

Body Care

Here are the 2 products I use for body care.

Price: £3.50/€3.92

Miss Universe Ireland. A night to remember

 

The Beauty Belle team have enjoyed our experience of becoming a product sponsor for the 3rd Miss Universe Ireland held in Dublin where 28 girls are chosen to compete in the finals for title of Miss Universe Ireland and then to represent Ireland at the Miss Universe competition.

It started with a brief chat with one of our local collaborators from Belfast, Nadia Sayers who asked us to consider being her hair and beauty product sponsor. As we get 100’s of requests, our first criteria when working sponsoring anyone is they need to be passionate about our products and brands and more importantly they use them.

As we had worked with Nadia before we knew how passionate she was about our brands and professional and also that she was going to give it 100% on her quest to become Miss Universe Ireland.

We jumped at the opportunity to help her look her best for the big event, so true to form we provided Nadia with all she needed for the event from award-winning Timeless Truth sheet masks to ensure her skin was flawless on the night, Silcare QUIN haircare, nailcare, hands and feet.

We were keen to get involved in some way so when Brittany Mason Show Director asked us to become a product sponsor we were delighted offering to sponsor the VIP goodie bags and providing the top 10 winners with a selection of our products.

In addition we sponsored the girls slumber party with our Timeless Truth sheet masks in advance of the event where they stayed over in a Dublin hotel.

The night itself was an amazing event/ experience in the Round Room at Dublin’s Mansion House on 1st Aug 2019, with Nadia finishing in the Top 10 and Miss Universe Dublin Fig O’Reilly chosen as Miss Universe Ireland, a deserving winner.

This was a very successful event for Beautybelle.ie helping to increase our exposure both in Ireland and as we look to expand into the UK and markets around the world.

We found the Class of 2019 were a highly professional group of young professional Irish women who have been so much fun to work with and went the extra mile to showcase our products. How refreshing.

Congrats to Brittany Mason and her team for putting on an amazing show and unforgettable night.

Roll on 2020…

Ana Zens Irish World Athletics 200m Champion

Irish World Champion Athlete Ana Zens Reveals her Beauty Belle favourites

Michael Quinn reveals more on this amazing woman…

A chance encounter with Ana Zens at the Curvy Fashion festival last year when I saw this beautiful lady taking photos, but she certainly stood out. Not one to miss an opportunity and I took the chance to introduce myself and gave her a complimentary Timeless Truth mask and business card.

Little did I know who this lady was at the time but as I followed her on social media I was amazed to find out that there was much more to her than I first thought and photography was a hobby.

So she is a runway model having graced the catwalk at London Fashion week, she also is a successful massage therapist in Dublin…

But I was surprised when she posted a picture as double world 200m athletics champion, at first I thought it was a joke but soon realised it was true. What an amazing achievement and a true inspiration.

 

I was also delighted when she posted a pic wearing our Timeless Truth masks and telling me how much she loved them… I was intrigued by this lady and I just had to meet her and see those 2 medals up close, so I arranged to meet her in Dublin to find out more…

When we met she told me was was going on a training camp to Europe I brought her a selection of products to try. She was immediately a fan of our Silcare products having tried our Comfort Relief Leg Lotion and Hair Serum and Vitamin sprays.

Our first Irish double world champion 200m athlete and Runway model Massage Therapist based in Dublin.
👌

We are so delighted she loves using our products and is so passionate about them and kindly has posted pictures wearing and adding reviews on website and social media which I certainly hadn’t expected, nor did I expect her to love all the products so much.👏👏
 
“Thankyou so much Michael I am using @beautybelleire and @ttmasks on my face so was comfortable to run with no makeup on. I am so happy using @beautybelleire premium quality products I believe everyone will find something for them as there is such a great choice. I am happy with nail products my nails are so strong now. Adore all @ttmasks sheet masks. Happy with footcare products. All products have incredible smell. I like face wash liquid and hand serum..Can continue my list of favourites from Beauty Belle forever. You have to try them”

Her favourite products include;

– Timeless Truth eye and face masks
-QUIN Cleansing Face Gel
– Pink Shine Nail Butter & Complete Nail.Repair
– Comfort & Relief Leg Lotion
-QUIN Hair Mask, Serums and Vitamin Spray
And many more…

How proud are we to have this girl representing Ireland on the track and International runways a true inspiration, and even more delighted she now feels confident to run without her make-up on.👌👌
We wish her well on her training camp and upcoming Europe Athletic championships later this year👏👏

How proud are we to have this girl representing Ireland on the track and International runways a true inspiration.👌👌We look forward to working with Ana in the future…

 

Rejuvenate your skin for summers with the award-winning body scrubs/ exfoliators

Natural Body Scrubs and Exfoliators


Peeling – quick and effective, just take it to the shower and voilà! But how not to get lost on store shelves and choose the right one? We come to you with help and we present several types of peels. Choose the most suitable one for yourself!

One of the examples of body peeling is a two-phase peeling. Such peeling may consist of a wiping layer – salt or sugar – and have a second phase of valuable oils that nourish and moisturise the body. It is ideal for people who value time and do not want to spend hours in the bathroom. Essential oils that moisturize can successfully replace the body lotion. An additional advantage is the extraordinary aesthetic value. They just look beautiful. The Silcare offer includes two-phase peels based on Dead Sea salts.  QUIN 2 Phase Dead Sea Salt Scrub

Another suggestion may be a peeling inspired by tropical fruits. Coconut shells are ideal for removing dead skin and restoring perfect micro circulation. They will help in the fight against stretch marks and cellulite. If we combine it with oils, we provide a lot of nutritional value. It so happens that Silcare in its offer has an oil peeling with coconut shell scrub .

Quin Oily Body Scrub with Coconut Shells

Or if you prefer a natural salt scrub, then  the QUIN Natural Salt Body Scrub with coconut shells for remarkably smooth and moisturised.

Check our range of natural body scrubs and get your skin rejuvenated for the summer.

Your beautiful body, which you cared for throughout the year, also!

Do not be afraid to expose your body. Praise the beauty before it disappears under the autumn layer of sweaters. Happy Holidays!

CIARA LOVES…

This month my hero product has to be the Silcare Cleansing Face Gel for Oily/Combination Skin. I find this leaves my skin feeling so clean and soft but maintains hydration. It’s also very effective for removing make up.

This unique product comes in 3 varieties for Dry Skin, Normal Skin and Oily/ Combination Skin is much more than a cleanser and uniquely moisturises and conditions skin as well. Great Value for 200ml which will last for ages. An essential for your skincare routine.

Quin Normalizing Facial Cleansing Gel washes and cleanses face, smooths, moisturizes and conditions the skin as well as rebuilds the lipid layer. It contains niacin (vitamin B3) responsible for the function of sebaceous glands, thus is the main active ingredient intended for problematic skin, e.g. acne, oily, with a troublesome T-zone. Reduces transepidermal water loss, improves moisturization of skin’s horny layer. The gel has cleansing, smoothing and oiling properties (due to lanoline). Moreover, it regulates the sebaceous glands’ function and is antibacterial (due to sorbitol) as well as neutralizes the damaging action of free-radicals (thanks to pro-vitamin B5, which acts as an antioxidant).

Quin Cleansing Gel Normalising for Oily Congested Skin

FEATURES:

For oily and mixed skin
Sweet aloe fragrance
Skin-friendly pH (5.5)
Doesn’t contain SLES and SLS, allergens, parabens

Price: £9.95/£11.14
