The Olverum Body Polish primes the skin so that it is ready for further treatments such as Olverum Firming Body Oil, helping to leave the skin looking visibly smoother.
Olverum Firming Body Oil
A ground-breaking addition to the OLVERUM range, OLVERUM Firming Body Oil is an intensive body sculpting treatment oil, exactingly formulated to improve skin’s elasticity making it appear tighter and more toned.
Applying OLVERUM’s nine decades of expertise with essential oils, we have created a unique and efficacious formulation of active botanical oils and extracts which have been shown to tone skin, enhance collagen levels, and help protect against future loss of elasticity.
Massaged well into target areas, specialised contouring botanicals Grapefruit and Black Pepper, which are known to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, rapidly provide a more sculpted appearance. Meanwhile, gently exfoliating Papaya Enzyme removes dull, dry areas to reveal smoothed, dewy skin for instant toning benefits.
OLVERUM Firming Body Oil is designed to slow down the loss of firmness caused by the aging process, and the body’s gradual decline in its production. Paracress Extract, proven to slow collagen degradation, works synergistically with collagen-boosting Alaria Esculenta extract for amplified effects in maintaining the skin’s natural plumpness. Finally, an antioxidant-abundant combination of Clary Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, and Patchouli oils prevents the formation of free radicals.
Suitable for all skin types, its non-greasy formula absorbs rapidly, providing a smooth, cushioned texture for massage, while its lightly energising scent also gives a lift to your mood.

Skin Educator for Millie.ie
Read this to understand the importance of applying sunscreen to our face and other exposed parts of our bodies, according to Cancer Research UK, the risk of developing melanoma is around three times higher in people who have had sunburn just once every two years. They also found that a staggering nine out of 10 cases of skin cancer can be prevented by using a high factor sunscreen. Therefore, should we be wearing sunscreen all year round?
Pamela Hamilton, Skin Educator for Millie.ie says, “Yes! It is so important we wear SPF all year round. Your face and body are exposed to UV radiation every day through clouds, rain, glass, sun or snow. Everyone, men, women and children over the age of six months should wear it every day all year round. Not only is SPF the most important part of our skincare regime, but it also reduces the risk of melanoma by 50%! Going unprotected on an overcast day can lead to as much damage as to a sunny day. “
The experts over at Millie.ie have put together this fantastic piece on wearing sunscreen daily and their skin educator has also given some great advice on what’s best to do.
