My local pharmacy has a big range of the Ziaja Skincare. It’s a Polish brand that is really affordable. The packaging is nothing fancy but that’s because they focus all their effort on the quality of the product than to the wrapping. Their ethos is ‘focus on skin’ which is what you really want from a skincare brand.
The Sensitive range does what it says on the tin, it is formulated for sensitive skin types. The range contains no perfume, mineral oils or silicones. I have skin that is easily irritated so this range is right up my street.
I decided to buy the Sensitive Enzyme Peeling as I had seen rave reviews from some fellow bloggers. I’m a huge fan of the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel and I was hoping this might be a budget dupe. I love enzyme masks and cleansers as its a way for me to smooth my skin without using a scrub which can irritate my skin. The Ziaja peel contains the same Papaya enzyme extract (Papain) as the Elemis product so the products are quite similar.
The mask does a great job at dissolving dead skin cells in just 10 minutes. This caused no irritation to my skin but it really helped calm and soothe my skin. It’s not quite as soothing as the Elemis peel but I could live with that as this is a good €35 cheaper at €4.99!
The second product I bought is the Creamy Wash Gel for Face and Body. I mainly bought this because I really love products with a pump for the shower and also thought it would be handy as you can use it on face and body. This is a really gentle cleanser that causes no irritation on my face at all, it’s a perfect everyday cleanser. This reminded me of the popular Cetaphil cleanser, it does exactly the same job but is a lot cheaper at just €4.99 for a generous 400mls. This is one I’ll definitely be buying again.
