In order to keep fine lines, flaky and tight feeling skin at bay and help your skin to get its glow back, we've teamed up with Ella & Jo to give one lucky Irish Tatler reader the chance to win the ultimate hydration gift set worth €60!
Regardless of what skin type you identify with, dry, flakey, and rough patches on the skin (and especially on the face) become a real issue coming into the warmer months. Sun exposure, heat and saltwater can dry out your skin in the summer months as you spend more time outside or by the sea. Not to mention the fact your skin has likely taken a battering over the past few months thanks to freezing temperatures, central heating, face masks and increased exposure to blue light.
Thankfully, it’s nothing that can’t be remedied by making a few considered adjustments to your skincare regimen. The first protocol for many is a hydrating moisturiser. It delivers hydration, locks important natural oils into the skin, and strengthens the barrier so that it can better defend itself from the environment. But after the cold winter months, working from home and the regular wearing of face masks, your regular face cream just won’t cut it on its own. In those cases, you're going to need to look for reinforcements in your serums and facial mists.
And that's exactly where Ella & Jo comes in.
Ella & Jo was founded by powerhouses Charlene Flanagan, professional makeup artist and Niamh Ryan, skin therapist and salon owner in 2017 after Niamh, as a skincare expert, saw the connection between acne and blemish-prone skin with not cleaning makeup brushes regularly. The Squeaky Clean Brush Cleanser (an antibacterial makeup brush spot cleaner that will clean, disinfect and have your brushes dry and ready to use in minutes) was born and thus launched the brand, Ella & Jo. What's really special about Ella & Jo is that it's an Irish, female-owned skincare brand; created, produced and packaged in Ireland.
Since the initial launch in 2017, Ella & Jo has grown from strength to strength with the launch of their cruelty-free and vegan-friendly skincare range. The hero products in the range are the 3 in 1 Hyaluronic Skin Mist (€25) and the Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum (€40).

The 3 in 1 Hyaluronic Skin Mist (€25) is a soothing facial spritz supercharged with hydration hero ingredient hyaluronic acid and extracts of chamomile, cucumber, witch-hazel, aloe vera and green tea. Designed to rehydrate the skin over makeup by spritzing the hyaluronic acid-based mist on to your face to hydrate the skin, plump fine lines and wrinkles and to bring your makeup back to life. Simply spritz your skin morning, evening and throughout the day either on bare skin or over makeup.
The Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum (€40) is a four-tiered serum and unlike any other on the market. With a supercharged formula made up of peptide complex Matrixyl 3000 (to help stimulate collagen and elastin), hyaluronic acid (to deeply moisturise), niacinamide (to rebalance uneven skin tone and reduce redness) and botanical extracts (to help soothe skin), this serum offers luxury but with proven results. What's more, it's safe to use while pregnant and breastfeeding. Simply use as part of your morning and evening skincare routine. Apply onto cleansed damp skin and follow up moisturiser and SPF in the morning. At night, apply before night cream or night oil.
Ella & Jo can be found nationwide in all major pharmacies & online stores including Meaghers Pharmacy, McCauley Pharmacy, McCabes Pharmacy. Or, you can shop online at ellaandjo.ie and Cloud 10 Beauty.
