Jane Iredale makeup comes to Nautilus Dublin

Nautilus Dublin is thrilled to announce that we are now a stockist for Jane Iredale makeup! This is a gorgeous, natural, mineral based makeup range. It’s safe for even the most sensitive skin, is non-irritating and does not block pores.

The Jane Iredale mineral foundations, which come in both powder and liquid forms, perform four fabulous functions in one product. They act as a foundation, concealer, sunscreen and actively care for the skin.

Jane Iredale makeup is “the skin care makeup”. We have a great selection of foundations, as well as products for eyes, lips, and cheeks!

We’ll be hosting a fun and informative launch event later in February. If you’d like to see the range in the meantime or learn more, please do get in touch on 01 534 0003 or NautilusDublin@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Free From?

Free From?

What does 3 Free or 5 Free mean in the world of nail polish, and why does this matter?

Let’s start with the basics: Nautilus Dublin nails

3 Free = NO formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene

5 Free = NO formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor
(there are also vanishes on the market now that are 7 and 8 Free!)

And what do these top 3 chemicals do? (according to WebMD)
1. Formaldehyde – a carcinogen
2. Dibutyl phthalate – has been linked to birth defects in studies involving lab animals
3. Toluene – a toxin that may cause birth defects and developmental problems in children of pregnant women who have had extended exposure

When I was selecting which product ranges to use at Nautilus Dublin, I wanted products that were as natural and organic as possible. It’s what I choose to use at home, and I like being able to provide my clients with some “greener”, “cleaner” options. I also thought about what the impact of exposure to extra, unnecessary chemicals could be long-term to my own health. Now, I’m not a soapbox preaching eco-fanatic, but I do believe there are simple choices we can make that are better for us but without sacrificing quality or results.

I’m of the mindset, “better safe than sorry” and that’s why I selected the Soil Association certified Neal’s Yard Remedies range for our facials. For our professional spray tans, I selected EcoCert certified TanOrganic. Natural, chemical-free, and organic products have become more widely available and are as effective as their potentially less safe counterparts.

Why does being free-from matter? Well, nail products are trickier. By their very nature it takes chemicals to create those glossy, long lasting, colours that are flexible enough to adhere to the nail. But, with these nasty chemicals no one really knows the full effect that long term exposure to the fumes or to the chemicals being absorbed through the nail plate or surrounding skin may have. Thankfully, there are some amazing free-from options available! 

At Nautilus Dublin, we use 5 Free Zoya nail varnishes, which are “safe for those with sensitive skin or skin allergies or if you’re pregnant”. Nautilus Dublin Zoya

Nautilus Dublin Vinylux 2We also use 3 free CND Vinylux.  For our gel polishes we use SmartPolish, which is a long lasting gel that does not require a base coat or a top coat. There is no sticky layer to remove. All of this means less chemical exposure to you and less time under the UV lamp!

Probably WAY more information than you were bargaining for, but sure, knowledge is power 🙂

Confession Time

Confession Time

I’ve found it hard to kick off the new year. I don’t know if I’m still on a Christmas high from spending time with my family in the U.S. or if I’m just really looking forward to what this year holds. Whatever the reasons, ironically the result has been a lack of focus and momentum on my part. That then turns into guilt and pressure and stress – not the goal! UGH!

Like many, I turn to exercise to help clear the head. Plus, it’s good for us, we all probably indulged a little too much recently, and new year/new leaf and all that. I went for a run yesterday for the first time in about 6 weeks, and I am paying the price today!

So, here’s my new best friend – the Neal’s Yard Remedies Arnica Salve. This 99% organic remedy is full of arnica, ginger, lavender and rosemary essential oils to help treat over-exertion and ease the pain!

I love this stuff mainly because it’s natural and more importantly, because it works! If you’re in the same boat, get in touch, I have it in stock at Nautilus Dublin!

Hello 2016!

Hello 2016!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little shocked that we’re already three days into a new year. Talk about a page turner – a new year brings with it hopes, dreams, renewed energy, and pressure. The pressure to make changes, do more, be better. Frankly, it can be overwhelming.

Be sure you take time to simply be. Rest. Breathe. Relax. Be thankful for what you already are, for what you already have.

So, strive to be the version of you that brings you happiness, peace, and contentment. As my 91 year old grandmother likes to say, “life is not a dress rehearsal”.

Wishing us all a happy & healthy 2016!
